Routh's club rant
09:30 22 July 2006
'Superman Returns' star Brandon Routh hates going to nightclubs - because the music is too loud.
The actor who plays the Man of Steel in the new superhero movie insists he can't stand going out to the latest trendy nightspots because he struggles to hear what people are saying to him.
He told Hello magazine: "You can go to all the glitzy and glamorous places, but it all starts to look the same after a while. Besides, when you got to clubs, sometimes the music is so loud you can't talk to anyone. I feel like my grandfather, saying, 'Could you just turn the music down? I'm trying to have a conversation!' That's not fun for me."
Instead, Routh has revealed his dream day out is playing sports with his friends, and his ideal night in is cuddling up on the sofa with his actress girlfriend Courtney Ford.
The 26-year-old star, who has been dating Ford for two and a half years, explained: "What is fun for me is to hang out with my friends and play basketball, or stay at home with my girlfriend and watch a movie."
