The comedian has found his celebrity status means he also gets recognized everywhere, but he insists he likes the attention.

He said: "I don't know that I feel like a giant but I am definitely aware that I have lost my anonymity. It's an ego boost getting noticed. My ego is definitely a giant."

Jack -- who has sons Sammy, four, and two-year-old Thomas with wife Tanya Haden -- also revealed he lost weight while filming the movie in London because of the amount of stairs in British homes.

Jack, who usually lives in a lavish bungalow in Los Angeles, said in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "The houses here have a lot of floors.

"So I have got a lot of exercise. My boots are like powerful pistons.

"We are having a great time in Britain. They have great parks here, we have been exploring."

But the actor -- who recently admitted his New Year's resolution is to go on a diet and drop 50 pounds -- has discovered he loves a calorie-laden British curry.

Speaking about eating out in the UK capital, he added: "I love the food. I love the curries. They have better curries here. I am a sauce man by nature."
