WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT NEW YORK?
The kinetic energy, everything is on your doorstep, like galleries and museums, and I met my wife here.
I’m a supporter of Concern Worldwide, The Bowery Mission, Unicef, Amnesty International and The Smile Train.
I wear Chanel Égoïste Platinum. Hairstylist Ben Skervin usually cuts my hair as we work together so much and we just do it on set.
My go-to for suits is Yves Saint Laurent (3 E. 57th St.; ysl.com) and Rag & Bone (104 Chritopher St.; rag-bone.com) for informal clothing. Two things I can’t live without are vintage black Calvin Klein T-shirts (654 Madison Ave.; calvinklein.com) and my Prada gray camel blazer (575 Broadway; prada.com).
I use a Hasselblad H2 for shooting stories and a Canon G9 for personal.
