JW: Let's talk about your character in the film. Declan seems to more lead with his heart, which is part of his charm. Are you the same way? Did you bring any of yourself into him?
MG: I suppose I did. There's a little of me in there in that I lead with my heart. I think I'm more cynical than even he is. So maybe the cantankerous stuff is just me on an early morning. 

JW: I think another part that's fun about the film is that it's not love at first sight for your character and Amy's character. This one kind of leaves people hanging.
MG: A little bit, I'd say. But at the same time, it's not in a postmodern way trying to reformat the genre. It's still frothy fun, which is what was really nice about it, I think. 

JW: This film is probably going to establish you as a leading man. I think it's going to do well, and I think women are going to love you after this. Are you ready for what's to come?
MG: Bloody hell, what's coming? That's very nice of you to say. I'd be surprised, let's put it that way. If it does very well, the film, then I'd be very happy. Certainly grateful. When you've got a new family, any kind of security you can have is great.
