Tell Us About Yourself(ie): Ben Barnes

Buzzfeed.com has posted a Q&A they did with Ben, and they have shared some fun photos along with it. Check out the Q&A below and view the pictures in our gallery.

What’s your wallpaper on your phone and/or computer?

On my phone it’s a picture of my brother in a boxing match and on my computer it’s a photograph of London turning from day to night.

When you walk into a bar, what do you typically order?

Usually a lager but it varies, a whisky or gin and tonic sometimes.

What’s the one word you are guilty of using too often?

Outdoor furniture.

I went to the National Theatre to see a play about life in the slums of India in December.

The Voice. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are a great comedy duo.

What’s the first CD you bought?

It was a cassette tape of TLC’s Waterfalls and Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise.

Indian food or pizza.

Hozier’s album and Paolo Nutini’s Caustic Love.

What movie makes you laugh the most?

This is Spinal Tap makes me laugh every time.

What’s your favorite day of the year?

Christmas Day

What’s your favorite emoji?

Pick one: Kittens or puppies?


New York or Los Angeles?

Los Angeles

Comedy or drama?


Bacon or Nutella?

Bacon… These questions are getting harder!

Coffee or tea?


’80s or ’90s?

Cindy – He doesn’t look like any boy next door that I ever saw. I wish! Though, to be fair, while visiting London a few months ago I saw some very handsome gentlemen that looked strikingly similar to Ben. Something in the water over there, perhaps?
