Andy Serkis has given a frank, personal and intimate interview to The Guardian.

Some would say it's a little too frank, personal and intimate.

The actor and motion capture expert gave the interview ahead of the release of War For The Planet Of The Apes, in which he plays gorilla Caesar.

When asked by a journalist how often he has sex, Serkis, who is married to actress Lorraine Ashbourne, replied: "Four, five times a day".

Worringly, Serkis also revealed he doesn't shower every day, "because I don't have the time".

He also shared some less than kind words about his role as Gollum in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films.

When asked how he would like to be remembered, Serkis replied: "Preferably not as the guy who played Gollum."

Serkis also said his greatest achievements were his three children, he cried over Brexit, and he would probably play himself in a movie based on his life because, "I could motion capture my own life".

War For the Planet of the Apes is released on July 12.
