Vince Vaughn: The happiest swinger in town

Vince Vaughn earned the best possible accolade for an actor this year. He is not the Sexiest Man Alive nor the most nominated for more serious awards, but he is the A-list actor most Hollywood studios are itching to work with by dint of this particular honour. Forty next year, Vaughn is the actor most likely to give investors a rosy return on their money. Not surprisingly, then, his stock is at an all-time high. The fact that he specialises in comedy, in these profoundly non-comedic times, has placed him in even greater demand.

 

If Vaughn is making huge sums of money for financiers, he is necessarily making matching funds for himself. But you'd never guess it. Vaughn is a down-home kind of East Coast guy, and by all accounts one of the good ones. He's not flashy. Not like Trent, his handsome, gangly interloper in Swingers, the film that put him and his longtime friend and collaborator Jon Favreau on the map in 1996. His clothes are casually nondescript. There's no screamingly expensive Tag or Rolex watch on his wrist. And there's nothing flashy about his attitude either.

But ask the secret of his success and he doesn't hesitate. "I think having a sense of humour always served me well. Being able to laugh at myself or situations always served me well. "
