TV Guide caught up with him to find out about his favourite things. ENTERTAINMENT Movie: I have recently rediscovered The Sound Of Music. I loved it as a kid, but now as a parent I appreciate it from an entirely new perspective. Book: Most of the books I read these days are to my daughter at bedtime. So my favourite is probably Going On A Bear Hunt or Room On The Broom. TV show: I’m such a fan of The Good Wife. It’s just smart drama. Band or singer: Stevie Wonder and John Farnham. Their voices are just impossibly good. Album: My father is Scottish so I was introduced to the Proclaimers long before 500 Miles. Their first album This Is The Story is just two brothers with a guitar. Each song is captivating. Karaoke song: I Believe In A Thing Called Love by The Darkness. I like the looks on people’s faces when they see a children’s entertainer able to sing it. Gadget: All gadgets. But my iPhone is never out of arm’s reach. LIFESTYLE Holiday spot: I have travelled so much that I really just love being at home. Thing to do on the weekend: Sit at a cafe with my family and the newspaper reading comic strips with my daughter. Place to go to relax: I love sitting in a park with as little distraction from the outside world as possible. Hobby: I am so fortunate to do so many varied things I love for a living. If I didn’t get paid for what I do, it would be my hobby. Sport to follow or play: I was 182cm tall at 14 years old so I played AFL as a teenager. Go the Mighty Swans! Dinner conversation topics: Movies generally. Everyone has seen one. HOME Room in your house: The shower. I get my best ideas there. Place to hide from everyone: I’m always playing hide and seek with my daughter and my favourite place to hide is in her cubby house. Art piece: My wife and I bought a beautiful painting in Venice and tracked down where it was painted. We spent time enjoying that area. Item you can’t live without: My iPhone. I feel disconnected from the world when the battery dies. Luxury product: Jeans. Not terribly luxurious, but if I’m going to wear something as often as I do jeans, I’m going to get the best pair I can afford. FOOD Meal of all time: I had the best Lebanese banquet in Abu Dhabi. I’ve eaten Lebanese countless times, but this time, every bite was exquisite. Dish to cook: Roast vegetable lasagne because it is fabulously delicious. Family recipe: Zucchini frittata. It’s a recipe that has been used throughout my family as an easy and tasty way to get the children eating vegetables. Ingredient: Chilli. I also love coriander. Guilty pleasure: Pizza. Bar: Any rooftop place where you can unwind and take in city views. Restaurant: Sake´ in Sydney’s Rocks, it has the best Japanese food. Cafe: I love Cafe XXII in Pyrmont, Sydney. It used to be my local coffee place and I still drop by whenever I am even remotely in the area. STYLE Style icon: George Clooney is the epitome of how every man wants to age with style. Fashion designer: I’m not a big follower of fashion. I do love designers like John Varvatos and Tom Ford though. They combine comfort with a sense of elegance. Piece of clothing: I have a pair of leather Varvatos Converse boots I would wear everyday if I could. Shop: Apple Store. I will argue there’s as much style in that store as any fashion label. Artist: I like exhibitions of unknown artists just starting out. However, I have always loved Salvador Dali and Andy Warhol-style pop art too.
