HAVE YOU MET..? Talking to Australian actor Louis Hunter set us up for a very g’day
There aren’t many men who can make a gladiator sandal look as appealing as this Australian actor
The most misunderstood thing about men?
When we ask what you feel like eating, it’s not a trick question. Promise.
The worst date you’ve ever had?
For a while, I did amateur boxing and once got punched in the mouth so hard the day before a brunch date that I couldn’t eat anything, apart from little slivers of fruit. I could also barely talk to her because my face was swollen.
Willem Dafoe. I just saw him in The Florida Project, and he’s so talented, which always makes people attractive. So maybe it’s not that weird.
The last time you cried?
This morning, due to jet lag. I woke up at midnight and couldn’t fall back to sleep.
Most embarrassing moment?
At one audition I said I was a little more experienced in dance than I am. I had to learn a salsa piece, then perform it, alone, in front of 200 professional dancers. I felt like crying, but was somehow offered the role.
What are you afraid of?
Spiders. When I was a kid, one jumped on my hand and bit me – I had to be rushed to hospital.
The most romantic thing you’ve ever done?
What is your greatest love?
My family comes first, but acting’s always been an island of sanity within a sea of chaos.
