Dominic Cooper admits he got "tempted" by a lavish lifestyle when working on 'Mamma Mia!'.

And you're back home, down your local pub and you realise that you've been a little bit skewered by what you have seen and been through.

The British actor was overwhelmed by the luxury he experienced working on the 2008 movie and he admits it "skewed" his perception of things after filming had finished.

He said: "In whatever work environment, whether we admit it or not, there is always a little part of us that has been or will be tempted by a lifestyle for the wrong reasons.

"I noticed it with the first studio film I did, 'Mamma Mia!'. You suddenly get treated like an absolute king.

"You're flown around the world, staying in beautiful places, in places I wouldn't in my wildest dreams stay in, or ever be able to afford to stay in, and you finish that particular job and you realise, 'Oh that's not my actual life.'

"And you're back home, down your local pub and you realise that you've been a little bit skewered by what you have seen and been through."

Despite his experiences, Dominic, 33, thinks he learned a "good lesson" in avoiding temptation for the "wrong reasons".

He added in an interview with the Independent newspaper: "It's very bad. But it's a good lesson, I think, if you can get a taste of it and experience it and then not get tempted by things for the wrong reasons you can relate to it."
