If you had to recommend one book what would it be?

OblivionMovie1608 karma

I would recommend different books to different people. For a young person I would say Moby Dick. For a more romantic person I would recommend Great Expectations. For the very young reader I would recommend Black Beauty

Is it more fun to play as a "Good guy" or "Bad guy"?

OblivionMovie1524 karma

the bad guy. The good guy is pretty boring

How amazing was it to meet Nelson Mandela and how much did you enjoy making the film Invictus?

OblivionMovie1076 karma

It was amazing meeting a man of that stature and very intimidating. You dont know what you are going to say other than "I am very honored to meet you"

I enjoyed Invictus so much, everyone enjoyed it. At the last scene we just wanted to start again
