"I did this movie for no money"

Adam Levine may have plenty of money in the bank, but the singer is more concerned about creating good experiences than getting large paychecks.

The hit maker made his film debut as rocker Dave Kohl in the new musical comedy Begin Again, which also stars Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo, and Levine's revealed that he did the film for no money.

"I did this movie for no money. I'm very lucky that I'm in that position," Levine told USA Today.

"I want to have good experiences. I don't want to do a bunch of s*** 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," he added.

And the "One More Night" hit maker is having a lot of good experiences lately. Not only is he set to return as a coach for the seventh season of NBC's The Voice this September, but he's also engaged to the love of his life model Behati Prinsloo and will soon release his fifth studio album with Maroon 5.

Yes, Levine can definitely afford to work for free. But how does he feel about finally settling down and the woman who managed to tame him?

"She's incredible and that alone makes me the luckiest person in the world," the singer gushed about his fiancée to USA Today.
