Will Poulter says he has his friends to thank for keeping him grounded

Will Poulter's pals keep him grounded.

The 23-year-old actor feels "lucky" to have such good friends who have helped him maintain a "very regular attitude".

He said: "I was lucky that I had friends who have maintained a very regular attitude with me and haven't changed how they interact with me. I have got some fantastic friendships that I have had for a long, long time."

And 'The Revenant' star insists he is very different from his parents and sister, who all work in the medical profession.

He added: "They all do far more important jobs than me, and get a lot less attention and reward for it. Not that I could follow in their footsteps even if I wanted to - I didn't exactly have a host of amazing science grades. I had nothing else going for me at school. I lived for my one lesson of drama a week."

Will can next be seen starring alongside Brad Pitt in 'War Machine' and he admits he found himself in fits of laughter throughout filming.

He told the Evening Standard: "I find myself struggling not to laugh on lots of occasions. Brad was brilliant but at the same time totally believable. If I tried to do comedy for the rest of my career I would not be very successful."

Meanwhile, Will previously admitted he was a bit overwhelmed when he attended the Golden Globes as he didn't really feel like he "belonged there".

He shared: "I've never been part of a film that's had this type of attention, and it's not as if we made it with this world in mind. The Globes were amazing, because that in itself is a massive production: I didn't feel like I belonged there at all, so it was strange being a sort of fly on the wall. But I'm glad of any opportunity for a bit of fun after what was a shoot with, well, not too many opportunities for fun."
