Bare Beaunz : Colin

Colin Mathura-Jeffree

I have only been starstruck twice in my life, amazing considering the celebs I met while working in London; Priscilla Presley, Liz Hurley, Kate Beckinsale, Renee Zellweger and Katie Holmes among others. (Funny story: the day I met Katie, we looked down to realise we were wearing the exact same outfit, even our shoes). All lovely women, and so much more beautiful in person than you imagine. Priscilla was teeny-tiny and magnetic.

The first 'gobsmack-celeb' moment was courtesy of David Beckham, and I didn't actually get to talk to him. We sat two tables away from each other at a cafe, and he was close enough that I could smell him. For the record...yum.

The second was in New Zealand, at the seasonal launch of twentysevennames. When the lights came back on, I realised I was standing behind Colin Mathura-Jeffree. He turned and gave me a really friendly smile, and what did I do? Blushed and ran away without a word. Shame on me. I have regretted it ever since, because Colin is my favourite local personality.

My daughter and I had coffee with Colin yesterday, and I left an even bigger fan than before. I'm so excited to have him on Bare Beaunz today, my very first male! So without any further gushing, over to you, Colin.

I just bought...? 

An amazing vintage recording film camera for my brother in law....It's Russian, comes in its leather case with instructions...wicked.

I'm about to buy...? 
I'm always about to buy on ebay...say no more.

I wish I could buy...? 
A luxury yacht. My friends are luxurious snobs so it would be wonderful to just enjoy breathtaking New Zealand.

When I was a kid I wanted to be...? 
A super hero, I wanted to have secret super powers - isn't that funny? I never knew I'd grow up to be a super villain instead.

I never leave the house without...? 
Jo Malone Dark Amber & Ginger lily...intense.

If it wasn't so naughty I would...? 
I hate people that are boring and straight....if I wasn't so naughty I wouldn't be me.

At home I am usually...? 
Moving in a dream like pace...BUT my brain works so much more powerfully...less distraction and the love of familiarity...Home is my sanctuary....It's where my brain works so acutely it's frightening.

My fashion sense at school was...? 
Insane...I was already developing my own sense of style, and I admired those that did the same...

If I had one magic power it would be....? 
I never tell....though I can throw some pretty nasty curses when needed.

The last time I (really) laughed was…? 
I laugh all the time...The worst is when I laugh inappropriately...which is often.

My secret pleasure is...? 
Going to remain a secret...a few people know.

I'm happiest when...? 
I'm in the middle of a joke...eating fine food with great company...putting an idiot in their place....feeling like a million dollars....in the throes of orgasm.

If I died tomorrow I would be remembered for...? 
Who cares...I've gone...It's not about me anymore it's about what's new and exciting...bring it on.

He was a character, and a great sport. Now the pressure is on to find someone equally interesting to interview next!
