Contrats on being the new Dior Homme ambassador! How do you feel?
I was coming to the end of Twilight when Dior approached me, and I was really shocked at first because the name alone sounded almost legendary. I remember meeting the creative team, and their interest in an artistic collaboration convinced me.
Are you easily convinced?
Easily! No. Ha ha! I wouldn't have considered this real acting when I first started my career. But I've done some movies, and grown in many ways. When we sat down to discuss the concept, everybody seemed quite fearless. I thought it could be similar to doing a short movie and became really excited. It was challenging, and an interesting way to complement my film works.
What's your most unforgettable scent?
My dad's from Yorkshire, where the moors have miles of heather, and we used to go there every Christmas. I'll always remember the smell - it's incredible.
And what's your favorite scent?
I like the smell of people. Ha ha! It's really odd but, to me, you can often tell a person's nature from the scent he or she uses. I think we hang out with people because subconsciously we like how good they smell. Or is it just me?!
