1[on David Renwick] David is a master craftsman who builds something that lasts, and bears repeated viewing.
2[on who he'd marry if he was gay] I can't have someone towering over me, so I'd want someone small. Probably a jockey. Jockey is the third one. Motorcyclist, they're little. Dani Pedrosa, Valentino Rossi. And then obviously that bloke who plays Thor (2011). Wouldn't you? He's gorgeous.
3People say that if you're famous you give up the right to privacy. That's bull. I'm an actor. I'm not a celebrity.
