Los Angeles - 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 shit 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.

The singer previously admitted that he lost his equilibrium when he proposed to model Behati Prinsloo, Levin confessed that he ended up on both knees.

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