The former travel-show host has hit the big screen, upping the swoon factor in Crazy Rich Asians and the stylish thriller A Simple Favor (September 14). Here, we sit down with the celeb hunk, Henry Golding, and touch base on some key topics. Hear it from the dreamboat himself;
Leading Ladies’ Man
“Crazy Rich Asians and A Simple Favor were each a master class in filmmaking, and I had so much fun working with all my co-stars. Constance Wu is so dedicated, Anna Kendrick is ridiculously funny, and Blake Lively is magnetic.”
Meeting the Parents
“Luckily, I haven’t met any dragons like Eleanor Young [in Crazy Rich Asians]. I get along so well with my wife’s mom. But if you’re up against a tough crowd, be yourself…and do your research! Do they like cooking and traveling? Focus on what you have in common.”
Food, Travel, or...?
“If I have to choose one, it’s gonna be food. I just couldn’t live without other cultures’ cuisines. And food and fun sometimes go hand in hand, so....”
“If I could go back and give my single self some advice, I’d say to read up on some proper game! There was no Tinder or Bumble, so I had to approach women in clubs or bars. Back then, London had just started its smoking ban. When girls went outside for a cigarette, I’d pretend to smoke too, just so I could chat with them. Not too sensible, but it worked a couple of times!”
Stay beautiful Henry, and it was a pleasure chatting with you!
