"So I don't own a house or have a home. It can drive you a bit crazy not having any kind of anchor. Hopefully it will settle down some time soon but for the next few years I'm going to be filming all over the place."

The 24-year-old actor - who plays vet Jacob Jankowski who falls in love with circus performer Marlena Rosenbluth in the film – was stunned his workload was much bigger than that of his co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz.
