Adam Levine - Adam Levine: I did film for free

Adam Levine claims he wasn't paid for his film debut in the comedy 'Begin Again'.

The Maroon 5 frontman plays musician Dave Kohl in the film - which also stars Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo - and has claimed he chose to do the movie for the experience and not the pay cheque.

He told USA Today: ''I did this movie for no money. I'm very lucky that I'm in that position.

'I want to have good experiences. I don't want to do a bunch of s**t that I hate. I want to treat [acting] completely differently because I have the very fortunate luxury of not having to think of this in terms of money.''

Adam, 35, has earned enough money from his band and stint as a coach on the American version of 'The Voice' that he can afford the luxury of working for free.

He is also set to return to 'The Voice' for the NBC show's seventh series starting in September, the same month Maroon 5 release their fifth studio album.

Meanwhile, Adam, is engaged to model Behati Prinsloo and the pair plan to marry on July 19 in Mexico.

He previously admitted he ''lost his equilibrium'' when he proposed to the brunette beauty and ended up ''on both knees'' to pop the question.

Talking about his fiancee, he said: ''She's incredible and that alone makes me the luckiest person in the world.''
