The thrifty actor lives two hours drive from Los Angeles, so when he's shooting hit TV series The United States of Tara with Toni Collette five days a week, he chooses to save cash on gas and accommodation by sleeping on the lot.
The My Big Fat Greek Wedding star says, "I'm not gonna drive home every night and I don't wanna spend more dough (money) on an apartment, because I already have a mortgage.
"So I said to the guys when they gave us a little dressing room, I said, 'I notice there's a little empty dressing room over there; any chance you could throw a futon and a TV in there.'
"So I sleep for five nights outta the week... in an office on the lot... I park my car on the lot and I go up on Ventura Boulevard after we finish around nine or 10 at night, have a few beers and then I stumble back through that old studio."
But Corbett fears going public with his sleeping arrangements could cause a few problems - because actors and crew members are forbidden from spending the night on the lot.
He adds, "You're not allowed to sleep there... All the guards, they think I'm a writer on the show... and I'll come back at two in the morning: 'Hey boys!' They'll say, 'You're here late; you gonna work all night?' and I go, 'Write all night long.'
"It's a really cool vibe... I've got a nice shower in there, I've got the cable. I've got everything I need."
The actor starred as Carrie Bradshaw's lover, Aidan, opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in the hit TV show, and previously admitted he'd "relish" the chance to appear in a film version, following last year's (08) big screen outing.
Speculation he had signed up for Sex and the City 2 reached fever pitch earlier this year (09) when he was spotted in Morocco around the same time the movie was being filmed there.
Parker refused to "confirm nor deny" whether Corbett would appear in the 2010 picture, but according to GossipCop.com the star will have a big part.
The website reports he will have "an indiscretion" with Parker's character, according to a script obtained by them.
Former Sex & the City star John Corbett wowed Nashville, Tennessee's country music fans on Monday night when he debuted music from his upcoming self-titled album at the city's Mercy Lounge.
The actor told fans that showed up to support him that he was thrilled to get the chance to premiere his music.
He said, "I was secretly afraid that nobody was going to be here tonight. It really changed my life meeting a lot of you people."
Corbett performed for 30 minutes before leaving the stage and greeting fans in the audience, but he returned to the stage later in the evening for a 20-minute encore.
His set included two tributes to his hero Johnny Cash—“Cash” and “The Only Daddy Who'll Walk the Line.”
Corbett's debut album is scheduled to be released in March.
