The actor, 52, hates to be in pain and watching people embarrass themselves, and chatted with PEOPLE this week about "one last thing" ...

Last injury
I've got a frozen shoulder right now. I'm on painkillers, muscle relaxants and just had a steroid injection, which was dreadful. If the doctor said I screamed and cried like a baby, he's a liar.

Last time I cringed
Watching someone on a reality show flirting, being pretentious or needy. It's too much; I try and run away but my girlfriend [Jane Fallon] holds me down and makes me watch.

I last danced ...
In 1985. No, for the Muppets movie. I do a proper song and dance routine. I feel sorry for the people who have to watch and get as embarrassed as I do watching someone embarrass themselves.

Last gift I gave
I got a friend these amazing Bose headphones, they're like magic. I'm in awe of technology. I know, you want to hear something like I sent George Clooney a muffin basket ...
