The Revenge actor, who is dating his co-star Emily VanCamp, explained that he doesn't understand why people want to know what he does in his spare time.
"It's cool in a way because people like the show and people like the people who play the characters and they have an interest in them," he told People.
"But I like a few shows, and I really don't care about the actors' private lives, because that's just sad. I really don't. I've got enough s**t in my own life."
Bowman also revealed that he tries to avoid speaking about his relationship with VanCamp, saying: "I tell [people who ask about it] to [f**k] off because it's none of their business, and then it becomes less about the show and more about who I'm dating."
Revenge, which returned for its second season in the US last night, airs Sundays on ABC. The first season is currently airing in the UK on Mondays on E4.
