I'm part Spanish. My paternal grandfather came from Spain via Singapore to Manila.

And I also have on my father's side a great-great-grandmother who was Chinese. So, I'm a hybrid.

Plain white T-shirts do it for me every time. You can spend anything from £3 to £50 on a T-shirt, but I've bought some great ones from H&M, as well as shelling out on Duffer Of St George and a Polish label I discovered while filming 'Robin Hood' in Hungary called Scotch And Soda.

Robert Downey, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
