Chris O’Dowd at first believed Gal Gadot’s ‘Envision’ video was for charity.
The 40-year-old star and his spouse Dawn O’Porter both starred in the much-maligned video, which saw various celebrities carry out part of John Lennon’s iconic track amidst the health crisis – however Chris has now confessed he didn’t provide the concept appropriate consideration.
Speaking about the video – which was extensively mocked online – he shared: ”I presumed it was a charity thing.
”But yeah … we were in that first wave of creative diarrhea that seemed to encase the entire world … it was a thing that we didn’t need, that everybody hated. It was kind of bizarre to be even momentarily part of that maelstrom.”
Chris also revealed that he and his spouse practically had to spend the lockdown in different countries.
The couple reside in the US however Dawn was on her way home from England just before the lockdown happened.
The funny star – who has Art, 5, and Valentine, two, with Dawn – told BBC Radio 4: ”That was quite a scary moment of, like, we’ve no idea what lays ahead, and suddenly I’m just going to be doing this with the lads, which would be interesting but not ideal.
”So that was definitely a ‘get on a plane as soon as you can’ kind of moment, which was weird. Other than that, I mean, we’ve been lucky in that it hasn’t affected us terribly in terms of health or anything like that.”
Since then, the star has been having it tough finding time for work throughout the lockdown.
He explained: ”I’ve got a writing job, Dawn’s got a writing job, and suddenly we’re doing the parenting – like, the home schooling.
”This is what everybody can relate to around the country, is just, ‘God, I wouldn’t mind just a bit of headspace.”’
