London: British actor Rhys Ifans who will play Spiderman`s latest nemesis in the fourth movie of the franchise, is a homebody in real life and loves to spend time in the kitchen.

The actor who will play the villain, Lizard, in the `Spiderman` reboot said that he dislikes eating in restaurants, Contactmusic reported.

"I really, really like cooking, but, because of my work, I spend a lot of time in hotels and it gets frustrating. A hotel for two weeks is a holiday, but a hotel for three weeks is like a sort of strange hospital," said the 43-year-old actor.

The Welsh actor`s love for his favourite dish, Cawl, a recipe made with lamb and root vegetables is due to the minimum effort required to make it.

"Every culture has its version of it. It is something men can do. You just chuck it all in and go to the pub for a day and a half, come back and it tastes glorious," the actor added.
