British export Matthew Goode has no idea what he's in for. In his new film Leap Year
, Goode plays a smolderingly cynical barkeep who's mending a broken heart when tasked with driving a determined American (Amy Adams
) across Ireland to propose to her boyfriend. Though he's left his mark in films like Brideshead Revisited
and Woody Allen's Match Point
, his newest role is bound to catapult him to the top of the box office—and into the hearts of American women everywhere.
But that's not Goode's only romantic role of the moment. He's earning critical acclaim for his turn as Colin Firth's longtime partner in Tom Ford's directorial debut, A Single Man
The charming actor chats candidly about whether he's really
ready for women to toss knickers at him, his childbirth advice for Amy Adams and what it was like to kiss Colin Firth.
