00:00
It's funny you talk about risktaking
00:01
'cause I think risktaking is such a subjective thing.
00:05
You know one man's risk is another man's comfort zone so.
00:08
Oh god, I love this dog.
00:10
Sorry, just a second.
00:11
Oh god.
00:13
I like to share the frame with someone so charismatic.
00:18
I'm not easily scared to be honest.
00:19
I'm too lazy to get easily scared, I think.
00:22
The thing about the whole fearlessness debate
00:25
is that, as I say, you know what one person
00:28
is gonna think would take a great deal of guts and denial
00:32
somebody else thinks is just the easiest step
00:35
and all the other alternatives like not doing it
00:38
are less interesting.
00:39
So maybe I've got a bit of my brain missing
00:42
that means that I love not knowing what I'm doing next.
00:46
Like having a dog in this shot.
00:49
What somebody might think of as unusual
00:51
is what somebody else thinks of as super comfortable
00:53
and inspiring and interesting and natural.
00:56
I've never truly been that aware of fashion as such.
01:00
I mean I'm really interested in style.
01:02
Most of the things that I love to see other people rocking
01:06
or rock myself are things that aren't for sale this year.
01:12
I'm not that into trends.
01:15
I went to a school that had uniforms.
01:17
And one of the great things about going
01:19
to a school with uniforms,
01:20
which I don't necessarily think is such a great thing,
01:23
is that everybody with an ounce of sense
01:26
will customize their uniform.
01:27
So you may be told that you have to wear a navy blue
01:30
skirt and a white shirt and a tie,
01:32
but there are 15,000 ways of wearing all the above.
01:36
Do you have your shirt tucked out like this?
01:38
Or do you have your tie over here?
01:40
Or do you have your collar up at the back?
01:42
Oh, just scruffy.
01:44
Passing off scruffy as kind of directional I suppose.
01:47
That was the most exotic transformation
01:49
I would say that I have ever undertaken.
01:51
Superheroes and immortals pale into insignificance
01:56
beside Karen Crowder corporate lawyer.
01:58
Pantyhose doesn't work with me.
01:59
Pantyhose let sort of ends up just above my knees.
02:02
It makes me walk strange so I'm not a big one for pantyhose.
02:05
I have four secret skills that I've boasted
02:08
about shamelessly for years,
02:09
so I'm gonna pull them out again, okay.
02:11
Fish pie.
02:13
Mending things.
02:14
Really good at mending things,
02:15
whether it's china or wood, but I love sowing.
02:20
I love mending, sowing things.
02:21
Reverse parking.
02:22
Real skills, super skills, royal skills.
02:25
I'm a very good reverse parker.
02:27
It's occasionally useful but not all the time.
02:30
Finding things.
02:31
That's my super duper skill.
02:33
Anything that gets lost I can find.
02:36
Put me on the case I'm quite cheap.
