The versatile actor reveals his penchant for Mary Poppins catchwords and Jackson Five classics.

A wise man knows… when it is time to go home. But that wise man is not the most fun to be with.

The funniest thing that… a clown will ever see is not his own reflection.

You’ll always find me with a… look of confusion on my face but a smile that suggests that although I may be a little lost, I’m still very happy.

Ridiculously, when I was a kid… I thought that eating my bread crust and apple skin would make me big and strong like Tarzan, thanks to my Mum.

Amazingly, now I’m an adult… very true¬. I’m totally amazed that I am an adult.

Any success I’ve had… has been due to a lot of hard work and a little bit of good luck and assistance.

I never thought I’d say it but… Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

One thing I’d never part with is… my 1964 EH Holden.

When in doubt I…follow my gut feeling: if it don’t feel right, it probably isn’t.

After a hard day I… enjoy a beer and a cuddle from my kids.

My favourite place has to be…home with the family, but Paris is pretty wonderful.

One place I never want to see again is… my school principal’s office.

At parties I’m usually… the one having the most fun.

On Saturday morning I… start the day by reading the newspaper.

A song I can’t help dance to is… Blame It On The Boogie

The book that changed my life was… my passport. Although it is only a small book, it has shown me the world.

If I could turn back time… if I could find a way. Oh, hang on, I’m just quoting Cher. Actually, I would want to be at the tickertape parade in Melbourne when the end of World War II was announced. I think the feeling of peace and joy would have been overwhelming.

Something people always get wrong is… the spelling of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. But not me.

I get infuriated by… racism.

I’m always inspired when… I watch the Disabled Olympics.

Children are the… greatest achievement of my life.

Women can be relied on… to make the best mothers.

Twenty years from now… I hope I am proud of what I have achieved over the last 20 years.

My epitaph will… hopefully be written by someone who likes me, and if not then I guess the truth will be told, but if I had it my way I would want it to simply say: ‘He was a good bloke.’
