Stephen Moyer admits when he was single he used to act like a drunken poet roaming the streets in the manner of Richard E Grant’s character Withnail from cult 1987 film Withnail and I. The movie is about a pair of drop-outs who want to make it in the acting world.
Stephen says that he used to “wander around London” writing bad poetry and drinking wine when he was single.
“I’m that dude who loved being out of a relationship so I could wander around London in a long coat with a bottle of red, writing c**p poetry thinking I was in Withnail and I,” he recalled in an interview with the British edition of Cosmopolitan magazine.
He says that he is thrilled to have found love with Anna, and discussed his romance with her, revealing they get on so well because of her ability to talk about her feelings. The actor thinks openness is one of the most important aspects of a relationship.
“Anna’s great at that. If something’s making you uncomfortable, you have to talk about it,” advised the star.
He also confessed to having a penchant for fiery women, and joked that most ladies are more intelligent than he is.
“I’m a big fan of strong women. I want someone who’s my intellectual superior. And most women are!” he laughed.
