“Daniel Johns is intimidating because (a) he’s really good-looking, and (b) when he talks to you he looks squarely at you, like you’re locked in a Western shoot-off. And I was lucky enough to talk to him while he had sunglasses on, which is a bit like me going into battle without a shield.”

(He used to be married to Natalie Imbruglia (my favorite singer back in 1999), they divorced last year.)
