Movie stars are known for making all kinds of loot for their silver screen projects, however Adam Levine didn’t bank a fortune for starring in “Begin Again.”

The “Harder to Breathe” singer told USA Today that he wanted the role of Dave so badly, he didn’t take a paycheck.

Adam explained, "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 sh*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."

Meanwhile, Levine’s band Maroon 5 just released the music video for “Maps,” the lead single from their forthcoming album V, due out September 2nd.

He told MTV News, “This album is very much all over the place. There’s some stuff on our record that sounds a little like early Maroon 5, and then there’s some stuff that sounds like the newer direction that we went in. We thought we’d get back to certain elements that we’d been missing out on for a while with our original sound, but also bridge the gap with the new stuff that we’ve been doing. I think it’s an all-encompassing kind of record.”
