He said: "You know, I spent a lot of time out of work. Now I'm trying to make hay while the sun is shining. I wouldn't change anything. The fame thing, the honey traps, I don't know that I would've handled it well at 23. I would've gone ape sh*t."
Despite being a huge star now, Michael is still very grounded, which he credits to his upbringing in rural Ireland.
He told Now magazine: "My upbringing was pretty innocent. Fishing, climbing trees and running around the countryside.
"I was also an altar boy at a local Catholic church responsible for unlocking the doors in the morning. I slept in a few times. The whole congregation would be waiting outside and I's be running across the fields with the keys."
