My first heartbreak was extreme. I went to Australia for 10 months when I was at school and told the girl I was madly in love with not to come out to see me - and of course, when I came back, she met me at the airport to tell me she'd met someone else.
The nuclear family doesn't work. It's very destructive; it grew out of selfishness.
Any woman knows that it takes two people to be a good parent.
I think you must be running away from something pretty enormous if you don't want to see a person more than once or twice. I think relationships don't get interesting for quite a while. When the initial heady rush fades, that's when it gets really exciting.
I am a better listener than talker - but that's partly because I believe rows are often caused by saying things you haven't thought through properly.
I'm a trained architect. Both my parents were architects.
I'm best when I'm feral, when I don't wash or shave or change my trousers for a couple of weeks.
I'm very interested in poo. We don't have a very good relationship with poo, and we should have.
It's good to explore your darkness.
I don't see the point in marriage: if you make a commitment, you make a commitment. Fidelity is important to me; it's about honouring that commitment.
As a teenager, I used to travel everywhere with my guitar. I appreciated the fact it was with me, but it was always an absolute pain to carry around - even though, in those days, you could take in on a plane as hand luggage.
I don't have any labels for myself, really. Sometimes, when I am out with my wife, I am just Mr. Thompson. Or at my daughter's school, I'm Gaia's dad. I don't think of myself as Greg Wise, actor.
In Scotland, I have a huge barn full of woodworking tools. I love working with my hands. I basically just make myself bleed a lot. I'm very accident-prone.
Parties are not my thing; I keep it low-key.
Acting is not my primary drive in life, although I'd be a very unhealthy person without it.
