CURRENTLY fronting TK Maxx’s Give Up Clothes For Good campaign in aid of Cancer Research Kids and Teens, Toby Huntington-Whiteley is putting his fame where it counts. The initiative aims to persuade the nation to donate bags of unwanted clothes to raise money for much-needed research and care – as he says: “We may all not be able to donate money physically, but I’m sure everyone can give some clothes away. By simply dropping our clothes at TK Maxx stores not only are we are helping raise money for Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens, but we are also helping to slow the constant flow of consumerism and the desire of buying everything new.”
We spent five minutes with him to get to know the front-row regular a little better.
What is the one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?
“To be more confident and not be afraid of what people think of me.”
What is the most-read book on your book shelf?
“I have never read a novel for the second time so I couldn’t tell you.”
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
“Pizza, every time.”
Who would play you in the film biopic of your life?
“That’s a hard one, probably one of the old-school greats like Marlon Brando or Robert Redford.”
What three films could you watch over and over again?
“Life of Brian, this is a family favourite I could watch it over and over with my mum and dad; True Romance, this film has everything – drama, action, comedy and romance; and Out Of Africa, it’s just such a beautiful film and is one of the only films that makes me cry.”
Tell us your favourite quote of all time
“I was reading an article the other day and this has stuck with me ever since. ‘All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.’”
Where is your favourite place in the world and what makes it so special?
“Widgery Cross on the top of Brentor on Dartmoor. We used to walk up there as kids and still do every Christmas Day with family and friends. The views of the beautiful English countryside are breath taking.”
If you could invite four people – living or dead – to dinner, who would they be and what would you serve?
“Steve Irwin, David Bowie, Charles Darwin, and Banksy – a very eclectic but talented bunch! I would have to serve a roast dinner with all the trimmings and apple crumble with custard.”
