The departing Doctor number Eleven, on the red carpet at the GQ Man of the Year Awards, revealed a refreshingly laid back approach to making it big in his budding movie career.
Speaking to Metro, free newspaper of choice for rail travellers too tight to shell out for one, Matt said:
“I try not to take on any pressure. Take each job as it comes and if it takes me twenty years or thirty years or fifty years, hopefully I will get there in the end.”
This doesn’t quite chime with Metro’s chosen headline of ‘I will crack Hollywood after Doctor Who – even if it takes 50 years’ which suggests a rather more single minded approach, but it shows him to be more grounded than a lot of young stars.
Matt was presenting Noel Gallagher with an ‘icon’ award and was accompanied by his very nicely turned out sister, Laura Jayne. Of his forthcoming departure from the series, Matt said:
“I’ve had a wonderful ride and I enjoyed making the show and I leave it very happily.”
Enough said; what a top bloke.
