He posted on the social networking site: 'My mum turns 70 the day after Mother's Day, and I sent her 10 bouquets of flowers, and I recorded her HAPPY BIRTHDAY at the Kelly & Michael show with the whole audience, and I recorded a message with the crowd outside the Kelly & Michael show, and with Bridgit Mendler. And I recorded another message with me and all my team and people on the street, and with every new line, new people jumped up. And I THEN recorded another HAPPY BIRTHDAY at the Piers Morgan show with me, Antoine, and Angela Bassett. So i sent her FOUR HAPPY BIRTHDAY songs.'
The Scottish star also spoke out about his decision to quit law to pursue a career in acting.
He wrote: 'I always enjoyed the idea of studying as a lawyer and had a romantic notion of what it would be like to practice as a lawyer – but when reality hits you, and suddenly you’re in the office trying to perform as a lawyer – I realized that this is not what I wanted to spend my life doing. I didn’t want to find myself retiring and never having been brave enough to follow my dreams.'
