Just keep it simple.
I respond in general.
What kind of watch did you draw from the tag and why?
I mean, tough for Monaco, uh, miss. It is so unique. I remember seeing it Le Manas And just think it must be very special. But I think Carrera, for me, is what I respond to.
And you really like vintage watches. Are you really drawn to alcohol?
I think what cool you can put it in any situation and any time of the last century and it can probably still be cool. So, anyway, for myself, I rather want something that I can wear in any situation and not have to worry too much about it.
You mentioned that sometimes clocks can define or say something about a character in a movie. In this movie Gray man You’re coming out, all the character wears Tag Heuer. So what was right for those characters for those watches?
Well, the character has to be able to go into a variety of situations and hold and mix different people and is also involved in many extreme action moments. So the watch had to be able to work in all those different situations as well as be resilient enough to reliably accept all the extreme situations that were there. .
Excellent. And Tag Heuer has an excellent history of representing different characters. Steve McQueen chose Monaco Le Manas Because this brand was worn by a real life driver.
Yes, and inside Drive, I had this thought that the character would not believe the timepiece in the burner car he was using. So he fixed his watch on the steering wheel. And I wanted it to be really simple and clear so that it was clear not only for the camera, but also exactly how much time he had for the character.
And for partial reasons Drive, The tag refers to you as the apparent successor to Steve McQueen. What do you think of it?
I don’t know too much about Steve McQueen. I mean, I know a little bit about his work. And obviously I know about his connection to the race, so I can see why he was a perfect fit. I also think that there is something in the clock … no matter what history they bring, they are always present. They are always in the right moment. And I think McQueen deserves it as an actor. He was a very short-lived actor.
Well, let’s pivot from the clock for a second. You fly too far under the radar. I wonder what the last year and a half has been like for you in the epidemic? What hobby do you have? Are you making talk or something else?
No, there is no sour yogurt. Our kids are small, so it was a difficult time for them to be separated from other kids and not be able to see family and anything. So, we tried our best to entertain them. I think Eva and I have acted more in quarantine than in our entire careers.
Really dramatic sleep stories with voices and all that?
Yes, we spent a lot of our time just doing it.
