Josh Hartnett has revealed his family wouldn’t be viewing his latest television work.

On Friday, the Oppenheimer star told ET Canada that his wife – St Trinian’s actress Tamsin Egerton – was “not going to watch” his upcoming episode of Black Mirror.

“She asked me what it was about when I read it right off the bat… And she was like, ‘No, I won’t be watching it,'” the 44-year-old actor recalled. “She can’t separate herself from the entertainment that she’s watching it on like a visceral level. So I get that. I totally understand it.”

The Pearl Harbor actor admitted that while Tamsin, 34, would be missing the premiere, she would give the episode a watch eventually.

“But she’s a big fan. Eventually she’ll watch it and then she’ll be mad at me,” Josh added.

The episode – titled Beyond The Sea – saw Josh starring alongside Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul, with the story revolving around two astronauts from an alternate 1969 embarking on a long-term mission in deep space.

Black Mirror season 6 is streaming now on Netflix.
