Have you killed any of the animals?
I’ve shot a few pheasants and a few rabbits. I’m probably gonna be hated for that.

Why? Hunting is more humane than getting meat from factory farms.
Yeah, everything gets eaten on the farm. It’s where food comes from.

Have you ever seen a ghost?
No.

Do you believe in ghosts?
No. I believe that there’s something else out there, but...I don’t know what I believe in. That’s a good question. I haven’t seen them and I haven’t met anybody who I would really trust telling me that they have. I believe in aliens...and spirits, but I’m not sure in what form a ghost would be.

Are you ready for a natural disaster?
No way. Are you ever ready?

You can prepare.
I mean...no.

Do you know CPR?

I only let my temper go off around people I’m really close to. I’ve never lost my temper at work, or in a social situation where it would be unacceptable. Those closest to me get the sting.

I did learn it once, but I don’t remember. At the point that somebody needed it, I wouldn’t want to be the one who steps in and raises my hand to volunteer.

All you do is press hard and deep between the nipples.
Really? And then blow, in the mouth? Or is that just a Baywatch thing?

Now they say to just do compressions. Have you ever met a Beatle?
Um. No. Not a Beatle, no.

Have you ever been to Buckingham Palace?
I’ve been outside it, of course. I’m English.

I’d like to go inside.
Yeah, I’d love to.

What is the line between high art and pornography?
When does a nude shot go from being artistic to being pornographic? I don’t know how to politely say it, but I suppose when you start to see the insides of the female or male. [Laughs.] But it’s all in the eye of the beholder, right?

I think that’s right.
It’s definitely porn if you’re picking up a porn magazine. I’ve seen a lot of nude stuff that’s art.

Do you have a good sense of humor?
Yeah, I think so.

Can you laugh at yourself?
Yeah, all the time. If you can’t laugh at yourself what can you do? I’m a walking joke! [Laughs.]

Do you have a horrible temper?
Yeah. I have a short temper.

It doesn’t take too much to set you off?
I only let my temper go off around people I’m really close to. I’ve never lost my temper at work, or in a social situation where it would be unacceptable. Those closest to me get the sting. I usually bottle it all up at work or at a place where I can’t release it, and then yell at my mum on the phone. [Laughs.] She’s like, “Um, OK?”

Have you ever been in a situation where you thought you were going to die?
No. But I went scuba diving for the first time in January. I went down 90 feet and I hadn’t done my PADI. You’re only supposed to go 40 feet without your PADI.

What the hell is a PADI?
That’s the license you have to have to be able to scuba dive. We were down there swimming with sharks and I thought, “What if I were to freak out right now?” Because it’s too far to get to the surface without oxygen. So that was pretty scary, but it’s also what makes it so buzzing. But no, I don’t think I’ve ever had a moment where I thought, “This is it.”

Are you a risk taker?
Yeah. I like to think I’m realistic and sensible, but I take risks with a lot of stuff.

Are you a brave person?
I’d like to think that I’m brave. That’s a really wonderful personality trait to have. I would love to think I’m the type of person to go rescue someone.
