Jamie Dornan has revealed he accidentally spent a huge amount of money on repeatedly renting his movie Trolls World Tour for his daughters, when he could have got it for free.
The actor, 38, plays Chaz in Trolls World Tour, and was so excited for his three kids to see the film, he ended up spending $300 (£218) on renting it over and over again on iTunes.
Jamie, who shares daughters Dulcie, seven, Elva, five, and Alberta, almost two with his wife Amelia Warner, revealed how he made the expensive mishap.
He said on Jimmy Kimmel Live: ‘So, this is what happened. You know the countdown two weeks out [from Trolls World Tour] where I constantly tell ‘em, you know I did it for them, I basically pleaded with Universal just to put me in the picture.
‘And so, I was like, “It’s coming out in two weeks, guys, daddy’s going to be in this movie. It’s coming out next week, guys. It’s coming out in three days! It’s coming out tomorrow.”
‘They were so excited, like pandemonium excitement in the house. And then it comes out and I’m like, “OK I guess I’ll buy it on iTunes or whatever.”
‘It’s like £17, that’s like $25. So, I’m like, “Wow, OK,” buy it, you know they want it. You only get it for 24 hours.
‘The next day they’re like, “Hey we want to watch Trolls again!” I’m like, “Oh, sure.” I’m gonna have to buy it again. I think I bought it four or five times!’
Despite literally voicing one of the characters, he didn’t think to ask his team whether they could get him a copy – and only later found out he could have had a code to watch it as many times as he wanted for free.
He revealed: ‘After like a week I got in touch with my agent who was like, “Oh, by the way, Universal says there’s a code that you use whenever you want to watch Trolls [World Tour].”
‘I was like, “Oh great. I’ve already spent like $300.”’
Well, at least the kids were happy, we suppose.
