Ray Winstone Interview
AROUND THE WORLD WITH RAY WINSTONE
WHERE HAVE YOU JUST COME BACK FROM?
Sicily. I’ve got a lot of friends out there so I go quite often for a little chill-out. It’s a fabulous island. You get a lot of sun, which you need now and then to buck you up a bit, and then when it rains, you eat, drink and relax with the locals.
WHERE HAVE YOU FELT HAPPIEST?
At home [Essex], although when I was in Australia and New Zealand the people were so much like us it made me realise that it’s not always about the place.
NAME A PLACE THAT MOST LIVED UP TO THE HYPE
The Maldives is paradise and I think the Amalfi Coast is stunning. I also went to a place called Winton in the Australian outback, which is sort of like a cowboy town. It rained for the first time in five years when I was there and the next morning the plants had grown about three foot and the whole place was mauve. It was incredible.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CITY, AND WHY?
London. We know how to light it now and we’ve got great food from every part of the world. The only thing that needs sorting out is getting around.
WHICH IS YOUR ROAD MOST TRAVELLED?
My wife doesn’t like a car trip, so she’ll fly to Sicily, but me and my mate drive with our kids and we go through France into Switzerland and stay there, then down the Amalfi Coast and stop for a night, then down to Calabria. I drove to the Cannes Film Festival years ago and found a place in the mountains called La Bonne Etape in Château-Arnoux Saint-Aubane, which was recommended in one of those Relais [& Châteaux] books I nicked from a hotel once. The food was out this world.
DESCRIBE YOUR FAVOURITE VIEW
Standing on top of Whistler in Canada with a drink watching the city light up. Or when I was filming The Proposition in Australia, I was sitting by the pool at a motel and there was a rainbow around the sun. And when shooting Point Break, standing at the bottom of Angel Falls in Venezuela… I’ve been a lucky boy.
WHAT DO YOU PACK FIRST?
My wife says to me, ‘Raymond, just take your shorts and a T-shirt’. But I still have to pack a suit; you never know when you might need a nice whistle.
DESCRIBE A MEMORY FROM A CHILDHOOD HOLIDAY
We never used to go abroad but we would go to Snowdonia. Me and my dad walked up Snowdon, which is quite a trek – I couldn’t do it now – and we rode horses through the mountains.
