Personal trainer, actor, all round god-of-a-man AND meat twenty-seven cover star Eric Coco sat down and answered our Q&A this week ahead of the publication of meat twenty-seven.
Name five people you’d like to invite to dinner.
Angelina Jolie, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Pratt, Michael Fassbender and Jay-Z.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one quality or ability, what would it be?
Being able to teleport myself.
When did you last sing to yourself or to someone else?
This morning in the shower. I sang Girls Like You by Maroon 5. They remind me of good times living in Los Angeles and driving every weekend to Malibu.
What is your most treasured possession?
My survival skills.
If you could have a room full of one thing, what would it be?
The keys to lots of vintage cars.
What’s the best thing about your job?
I love helping people feel good, sexy and confident within.
If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be?
Like Ellen says, be kind to one another.
What is the best part of your body?
My legs and chest.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would say looking to back, to not take some many things personally and to keep moving forward. It’s something I try to do now.
What would you attempt if you could not fail?
To give a home to all the homeless people in the world. It breaks my heart to see so many people living on the streets, especially in a city as rich as London.
What’s your number 1 turn on?
What would constitute a perfect date for you?
A trip to the beach. My family is from Sicily and I feel so connected to the sea.
Have you ever been caught naked by someone?
No, but funnily enough I am a big exhibitionist so I'm comfortable being naked.
What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
I am actually quite happy with my life. In terms of my acting work though I wish the industry would be more accepting and give more roles to new actors, no matter what their background. London casting director struggle big time with this.
If the world froze for an afternoon and only you could move and no one else could see you or remember what you did, what would you do?
I would probably spend the day by myself watching lots of movies in a big theatre in the West End, eating sweets and popcorn.
