British actor Jeremy Irons is "hopeless with money" after rebelling against his accountant father in his teenage years.
The revered star plays the head of an investment bank on new thriller Margin Call, which is set on the eve of the 2008 financial crisis which left Wall Street teetering on the brink of ruin.
Irons grew up with a cash-savvy accountant for a father, but admits he fought against being financially-minded and is not ruled by money.
He tells London's Evening Standard, "Because my father was a chartered accountant, I'm an actor, and I'm hopeless with money.
"I'm not really interested in it. It's very nice to have some, but I have no interest in it as long as I have enough to buy a cup of tea. So in a way, I reacted against my father."
