Actor Simon Baker's drinking habit have escalated, since he moved back to his native Australia.

THE RING TWO star has been living in the US for over 10 years and had to re-adjust his lifestyle upon returning to his heavy-drinking homeland.

Baker explains, "I don't necessarily drink more, I just drink more often there. It's great."

He admits his alcohol tolerance is much lower and he's had to get back into the routine since moving home.

He adds, "It's like training - you just get in better shape - you just drink (all the time)."
