Since being the voice on THAT Spiller track, Sophie Ellis Bextor has been a regular in the charts...She's also been the face of cosmetic brand Rimmel and she's just been featured in the short musical film The Town that Boars Me. We caught up with Sophie for a classic Living grilling…
Living... For The City
I live in London - always have and probably always will! I'm London born and bred! I've always loved the idea of spending a year in Paris but now that I've got a little boy I don't know if that will happen. I think it would be a good thing to go out of my comfort zone for a year of my life. Life just happens you know and it's good to try something new. That would be really cool - I love Paris.
Living... On A Prayer
Golly...I'm undecided I'd say. The quote by Nietzsche which says that 'the arrogance of man is that when he sees no purpose he denies there can be one' is good - I find that quite comforting because it shows how little we know. I think I'm quite open-minded.
Living... For The Weekend
It would definitely involve family and friends, me and Sonny and my husband. I'd go and see my folks and friends and probably go disco dancing and cook some nice food - all the standard stuff really, but those are all the things I want.
The Living… Years
Oh, definitely, now is the best time for me. I'm more content now than I ever have. Rich and I are really happy and we have our little boy and we are doing what we love to do. You have to try and just remember that it might not last forever
The Living… Daylights
I think I've only seen one Bond film all the way through which was that new one with Daniel Craig, Casino Royale. I like him. I haven't really grown up with Bond films so I don't really know about them. The Aha theme tune mentioned in the question is a very good one... Nobody Does it Better by Carly Simon is probably my favourite Bond theme tune though. Shirley Bassey did some good ones too.
Living… In A Box
The best present I have ever received... Rich actually gives me some good presents. The best one I think would actually my Chanel handbag which he bought for me last Christmas! The best present I gave you? (to husband Rich)
Rich: Every year…! No, she bought me some beat drums.
Sophie: Oh yeah, you love your beat drums!
Rich: Basically when buying for boys you can't go wrong with toys and gadgets. Sophie bought me a laptop one year which was great and last year an electronic drum kit - it's so much fun because you can make a racket without offending anybody!
I really like watching Dragon's Den and stuff like that and actually loved the programme Faking It on Channel 4. That was one of my favourites! I absolutely look to cook too -I'm a big foodie.
