Michael Sheen chats to Jo Whiley

This is a completely adorable, hilarious BBC Radio 2 interview that Michael Sheen did during filming for Far From The Madding Crowd. Jo Whiley plied him with red wine and nibbles and he talked about the following (and a lot more):

Mole hands, his first experience of riding horses and camels in The Four Feathers, writing his serial killer film, talk show hosts in America, his daughter Lilly being a cheerleader, Masters of Sex – including trying to describe Ulysses without saying what it actually is – some really funny stories about his family seeing the show, the bands he’s seen in LA, filming Fantabulosa, Heartlands, Doctor Who, Neil Gaiman, and Dave Grohl.

“Never ride anything that can turn round and look at you whilst you’re riding it”

Michael Sheen

Music chosen by Michael:

Asia – Heat of the Moment
Savages – She Will
