Paul Bettany thinks about the end of the world ''a lot'' and admits he is concerned about what the future holds for his children
Paul Bettany worries for his children's futures.
The 'Legion' actor - who raises sons 12-year-old Kai and Stellan, six, with wife Jennifer Connelly - admitted he's terrified the universe will end because of the way people abuse and don't take care of their environment.
He said: "I think about the apocalypse all the time in terms of the environment and in terms of the wars we're waging. I think about it a lot, and it's frightening what life is going to be like in 2055 for my children if we don't cut down on our fossil fuels."
Paul, 38, believes he is not alone in his concerns and thinks that is why so many post-apocalyptic movies are so popular.
He said: "I think it's an ongoing fear and fantasy for people, so I don't think it's ever gone away. And maybe that's why we're suddenly seeing so many post-apocalyptic movies."
