Actor William H. Macy stars in Showtime’s dark comedy Shameless but the 65-year-old actor admits he still gets a little starstruck (and awkward!). Macy reveals his handiwork around the house and he’ll even binge watch Friends with his two daughters from time to time, when he chatted with PEOPLE this week about “one last thing”

Last gift I gave
It was swimwear for my 12-year-old daughter Georgia, who s going to Bora Bora. The stuffI usually get her looks like a pair of coveralls compared to the stuff she ll choose.

Last time I was starstruck
I ran into Kevin Costner at the Rachael Ray Show. You know that awful feeling when you don t know what you re saying but you re just praying it s not idiotic? I was doing that.

Last home improvement
I built a bridge in my backyard. It s a curved sort of Japanese-style bridge. I m a woodworker, and I have a shop [at home]. I ve always wanted to build one but I ve never had anyplace to put it, so I hired a guy to build a stream so we could put the bridge across it.

Last TV show I watched
It was probably with my oldest daughter [Sophia, 14], and I m afraid it was Friends. The girls go through and binge watch, especially when they re sick or they get a day off from school.
