SMALL TALK

BENI­CIO DEL TORO

Empire (UK) - - PREVIEW -

You work a lot. When you don’t work, what do you like to do? Do you still paint?

I haven’t painted in a while. I think about it a lot. I like to do noth­ing. Sleep. I lis­ten to Pink Floyd, Bob Dy­lan, the Stones... the usual sus­pects. I like to read.

What have you read re­cently that you loved?

I fin­ished a book a while back called Fear Of Fly­ing by Erica Jong. That was re­ally funny, and very in­ter­est­ing as well.

Are you still a big fan of Cuban cigars?

I’m a big fan of Cuban mu­sic, Cuban food, Cuban peo­ple...

I haven’t smoked in a while, but ev­ery now and then, a good Cuban cigar can be cool.

Why do peo­ple love Cuban cigars, specif­i­cally?

I hear that there’s some­thing in the soil — there’s a dif­fer­ence in the soil in Cuba. An ex­pert could ex­plain that to you much bet­ter than I could!

You’ve said that The 400 Blows is one of your five favourite movies. What do you love about it?

That was the first movie I saw that made me sud­denly go, “Holy shit, there’s a world out there of cinema!” And from there, it was Fellini, Kurosawa, Bergman, Víc­tor Erice... SI­CARIO 2: SOLDADO IS IN CIN­E­MAS NOW
