Esquire Magazine has compiled a photo gallery featuring 80 of the most accomplished men on the planet in honour of their 80th Anniversary. ‘The Life of Man’ features men ranging from the ages of 80 – 1, who were asked what the best advice was that they ever received? Their best day, proudest accomplishment, or what they’re looking forward to? So what does Stephen have to say?
(Actor, Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report; arched eyebrow of a grateful nation)
Best day so far: “I know I should say getting married or the birth of my child, but last Friday was pretty good. And there was nothing special about it. It just felt really good.”
Proudest accomplishment: “Doing what I do for a living and doing it in the city I want.”
In the video of the photo shoot Stephen elaborates on why ‘last Friday’ was pretty good.
