French acting hunk Olivier Martinez hates going out to nightclubs - because they're too crowded with shallow people.

The Taking Lives actor - who is currently dating pop beauty Kylie Minogue - prefers low key nights on the town as he has no desire to drink to excess and embarrass himself.

He explains, "I hate being around too many people. I don't go out on Saturday nights. I am not a party guy. I never have been.

"I hate clubs. It's very shallow. Everybody there is drinking, getting f***ed up. They think at the time they are so great and the day after they regret it.

"I don't do it that way and I don't have any regrets."
