Five Favourite Films with Diego Luna
The Rudo y Cursi star puts together his list.
Diego Luna is bristling at RT's suggestion he pick just five favourite films. "It's really unfair to have to say only five films," he complains as he picks his final choice. "This barely covers my life; I'm up to about the age of 16 by the end of the list!"
The 29-year-old has been acting since before 16 in his home country of Mexico, but burst onto the international stage aged 22 as part of the trio of leads in Alfonso Cuaron's Y Tu Mama Tambien. That film marked his first collaboration with Gael Garcia Bernal (see his five favourites here), a partnership that continues - this time with Cuaron's brother Carlos at the helm - with Rudo and Cursi, out now in UK cinemas.
Indeed, the Cuaron connection is another sticking point for Luna. "I'd also want to say that when I saw Children of Men, for me it wasn't only a fantastic film, but it was an important film for me because not only do I know the guy but I've worked with him, collaborated with him. Every time I have something I show it to Alfonso and hear what he has to say. I'd actually say that film is, for me, the most important film today because it's a relationship I'm still working on and learning from."
But what of his final list? Read on to find out more.
