Christian Slater is on such a "natural high" after appearing on the London stage, he finds himself torn between drinking with his co-stars and going home to his family.

The American actor, 35, acknowledges his "greater responsibility" is to wife Ryan Haddon and their two children even though he loves spending time with his fellow actors from the West End production of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.

He explains, "Doing a play in the West End, it is hard to come down afterwards.

"You do have a natural high after the show is done.

"And if you like the people you're working with, you want to spend time with them.

"But at the end of the day, yeah, I have two children, that does end up being the greater responsibility."
