Thursday's incident that got him kicked off a New York to Kentucky flight has come back to bite Josh Duhamel in the BlackBerry.

"I've learned that it's best to always turn them off," the actor, 38, said of his electronic device, which he reportedly was asked by a flight attendant to switch off when the plane was on the LaGuardia Airport runway. When he didn't, despite multiple requests, the plane turned back to the gate and he was removed.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Duhamel admitted that the experience was "not my favorite moment."





But that's behind him now. "I'm good," he said. "Lesson learned."

With his wife, Fergie, in London for a Black Eyes Peas concert on Saturday, Duhamel made his comments at Sunday's TREVOR Live benefit at the Hollywood Palladium. The Trevor Project honors individuals and corporations for their positive commitment to increase visibility and understanding of the LGBTQ community.

Asked if he had been bullied as a youngster, Duhamel said that he was. "I think a lot more people do than we realize. I was a gangly kid, who was kind of, you know, awkward," he said. "I can definitely understand it."
