Lewis Moody: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

20 questions with former English rugby union player and England captain Lewis Moody

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Family and friends who will always keep you grounded and honest

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

A man’s character is not judged by his successes, but by how many times he is knocked on his ass and gets back up again.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2013?

Onesies outside the house.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

Playing rugby.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

A time machine.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Mr Moody declined to answer this question.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“I can’t”.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

I believe that looking after my family is my main priority but we also have a responsibility to help others. I work closely with the following charities: Hope HIV, The Prince’s Trust, Chrons & Colitis, The Special Boat Service Association (SBSA) and the Hitz rugby programme.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

Mr Moody declined to answer this question.

 

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

Will Ferrell, Nelson Mandela, Harry Patch, Jesse Owens, Wilfred Owen, Chevy Chase, Walter Payton, Margaret Thatcher, Lord Carnarvon, George Malory, Ernest Shackleton, Walt Disney and Elvis Presley. What a chat that would be.

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

Charcuterie cold meat platter with Spanish olives and caramelised red onion hummus to start. Shepherd’s pie with peas and gravy as a main washed down with a pint of Guinness. Apple crumble (heavy on the crumble) with Ambrosia custard and a cappuccino to finish. All at home with my family.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

1pm.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A cup of tea.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

With two children, parties are few and far between these days although I do love a good fancy dress party. My good friend Roger Woodall runs Bournemouth 7’s festival I go every year and they have some amazing fancy dress parties.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

Mark Spoors: My friend, agent and CEO of Big Red Management.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Cheese.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A man sat in a room full of paperwork who can see the bright light on the other side but can’t quite fight his way through to it.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Land Rover.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

I have a love for military history and archaeology.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

Christmas cards.
