Celeb Getaway: Laurence Fishburne

Thursday, May 15, 2008

Your favourite vacations and why?

My favourite vacation spot? Goodness, I haven't been on a vacation in 40 years. Where would I like to go? I think probably Tahiti, I love Tahiti. Tahiti, Hawaii; I love Tahiti.

What's your number one travel tip?

Pack light. Take a big bag for all the stuff you're going to buy when you're there.

What do you never leave home without?

My mind.

I'll have to remember that one.

Always take your mind with you, your right mind.

Do you have an ultimate destination, somewhere you haven't gone before?

I would love to visit China; I have never been to China. I would love to visit Antarctica and I would love to go back to your country because I didn't get to see much of it when I was there.

What was your favourite travel experience when you were in Australia?

Well I didn't get to see much, like I said I was basically locked in Sydney and I didn't really go anywhere. But I did get to go up to the Great Barrier Reef; is it Port Douglas or something? And I was up there and I dived up there, but what I didn't get to do and I wanted to do was the Great Ocean Road … I want to do that.

What was good about filming in Vegas, were you a fan of Vegas?

You know what's great about working here is that it's open all night, never shuts down, that's kind of cool. And the other thing that's great is you can do so much people watching here because people are so involved in their own thing. You know when people become a little well known it's hard to do the people watching thing. But here — because everybody's a "star" — people come here to get there celebrity thing on; they come here to be seen they come here to chill out. And so it's kind of cool for me to lay back in the cut and kind of watch people act out.

What was the best thing about this movie for you?

How it's turned out, it's really sexy, this movie is sexy. Have you seen it? Oh my god it's sexy isn't it?

Yeah, it is.

So that's the best thing

You didn't get to have a lot of the scenes with the young sexy guys though.

That's okay; I play the monster, it's fine

Any gambling tips?

No, no. No gambling tips at all. I can tell you how to lose money if you're interested?
