The actor admits he's a huge fan of U.S. series Dancing With the Stars, but he'll never waltz or tango on the programme.

"Secretly, deep down, I'd love to do that show - it's superb," he tells W magazine, "but, damn it, I consider myself too classy."

And he doesn't think he'd make a very good contestant on the show after trying to perfect dancing in his latest film Florence Foster Jenkins.

"I had to learn to dance the Lindy Hop (and) that took four hard months, with ladies in leotards in a sweaty dance studio in London. They had to train me like a performing seal."

The current season of Dancing With the Stars got underway earlier this month (Sep16) and actor Jake T. Austin, who appeared in The Wizards of Waverly Place, was the first celebrity eliminated.

"I wish I could've done better," he said following his exit on Tuesday (20Sep16). "I mean, there's mixed emotions. Overall I'm really lucky, I'm really happy. I'm just a little bummed out. Other than that this was an awesome experience."

Other celebrities taking part in season 23 of the hit show include Amber Rose, country singer Jana Kramer, Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds, and actress Marilu Henner.
