The actor decided to give the water sport a try, but he was left fearing for his life when he was pulled underwater by a cord wrapped around his throat.
He tells British magazine OK!, "I like pushing myself and usually if I'm not good at something, I just won't do it because I'm a perfectionist. I tried kitesurfing and I nearly died. The cord that goes around the kite somehow got wrapped around my neck, and the kite was going so fast and was dragging me underwater.
"I thought I was going to die. Eventually the kite dipped down in the water and released the tension on my neck. It was one of the scariest moments of my life."
