Simon Newton 那一個你想成為的狠角色/ Simon Newton, the one you want to be

Simon Newton 曾經是歐美時尚圈中的最佳綠葉,現在搖身一變成為鎂光燈追逐的焦點。這樣子的轉變在這個五光十色的產業裡並不是什麼稀奇的事,但是想要在這個圈子待的長久,如果沒有三兩下的功夫,那麼有可能就只會曇花一現,成為十年後大家茶餘飯後的話題而已。

透過與Simon Newton的訪問,一起一窺這位不再阻擋狗仔隊拍攝,反而成為被追逐的角色的時尚演員,到底能否承擔這個產業的高壓,以及他對時尚的觀點。

Simon Newton was the green leaf in the western fashion industry, but now he is the most wanted one in this industry. This change isn't unusual in this vivid industry. However, if you want to stay in fashion for good, you certainly need to have some ultra-special things. Otherwise, you will vanish in pain and will be talked by everyone after dinner in the next ten years. But Simon Newton is the one who won't disappear for anything.


Through the interview with Newton, we have a chance of getting closer with this fashion actor, who no longer prevents the paparazzi from filming, but has become the one cameramen are looking for having exclusive photography.

什麼樣的契機讓你從保鑣的身份變成演員?

從2010年開始,我就不斷嘗試電影的工作。這一直是我很喜歡的事情,並且希望能夠參與更多地相關工作。

你認為時尚界的男性需要更男性化嗎?

這倒不一定,我認為大致上還是取決於設計師和服裝的類型。我知道許多品牌會設計某些款式給肌肉較明顯的人。但時尚是沒有任何界限的東西,無論壯與否,只要你覺得這個設計適合你,那麼穿上它就絕對不會錯。

你覺得你的風格是什麼?

我有兩種風格,我平常喜歡穿飛行員夾克,T-shirt,牛仔褲和休閒鞋(除非在健身房,不然你不會看到我穿運動鞋,而且不運動時,我身上都會穿設計師品牌的衣服)。另外,我還喜歡皮帶和手錶的組合。但要更正式一點,三件式西裝肯定不會出錯,而且配上懷錶是我追求且喜歡風格。

我其實不會從特定的地方來取得穿搭的靈感。因為我只穿自己喜歡的衣服,或者我認為穿上後會讓我看起來更棒的服裝。若真的要說的話,有時我會透過櫥窗中或從街上的人們身上來獲得搭配靈感。當然也不免俗的在網路上或Instagram上滑一些新資訊。但一般來說,我的穿搭通常還是透過我自己腦海中思考過後出現的。


你最喜歡哪位時裝設計師?

我喜歡Tom Ford的男裝系列,因為他的西裝非常合身(尤其是對我的身材來說)。再來是他的設計風格也很棒,品質也無可挑惕。


你每週運動幾天?

通常我每天都會運動。我每天會訓練兩次,每天早上6點吃早餐前進行有氧運動,然後在當天傍晚的時候進行重量訓練。

你有任何特定的飲食計劃嗎?

我的飲食計畫其實是我專門為自己量身打造的,而且大約經過了八個月的時間微調。對我來說,通常星期一至星期五不吃碳水化合物或糖,而週末我會吃大量的碳水化合物,不過通常是大麥製品和麥片粥。我平日會吃的大部分是雞肉和清蒸蔬菜、每天還要喝約4-5公升的水。對於營養補充劑的話,我會在訓練前先吃Pre workout,然後結束後再使用乳清蛋白。

你有什麼平常的小習慣嗎?

應該算抽雪茄吧!但我盡量不要抽太多,所以我每週限制自己不能抽超過一次。酒我也喝,但因為飲食控制和健身計畫所以喝的比較少。不過當我喝酒的時候,我通常會喝伏特加和蘇打水,來減少卡路里的攝入。



What brought you from a bodyguard to an actor?

I have been working in the film industry since 2010 on and off. It has always been something I have enjoyed and wanted to get more involved in.

Do you think the fashion industry needs more masculine role models? 

Not particularly, I think it very much depends on the designer and the type of clothing. I know a number of brands have made certain items to fit more muscular guys. Fashion is something that holds no boundaries so masculine or not, if it looks good on you then I would suggest wearing it.

What's your style? 

I have two different styles, my everyday style would be a bomber jacket, t shirt, jeans and trainers (I always wear designer unless I am in the gym and would choose to wear sports trainers) I love a nice belt and watch. When it comes to more formal, you can’t go wrong with a three piece suit and pocket watch is the normal kind of style I go for.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I don’t really get my inspiration from anywhere in particular. I wear what I like and what I think will look good on me. Sometimes I just see items in a shop window or on people in the street. Sometimes online or maybe Instagram I see items I like but normally the whole outfit is an idea I’ve just made up.

Which fashion designer is your favourite? 

I love Tom Ford for men, there suits are fitted perfectly (especially for my body shape) His styles are great and the quality is always impeccable.


How many days do you work out per week? 

Normally seven, work depending. I train twice a day, cardio around 06.00 every morning before breakfast and weight training later in the day.


Do you have any specific diet plan? 

My diet has been tailormade just for me and took around eight months to fine tune so it works for me affectively. General rule for me is no carbohydrates or sugar Monday to Friday and at weekends I have an overload of carbs, normally in the form of rice and porridge oats. The bulk of my weekday meals are chicken and steamed vegetables. I also try to consume around four to five litres of water a day. For supplements, I use a pre workout before training and a diet whey protein after.

What's your vice?

It has to be cigars, I try not to smoke too much so limit myself to no more than one a week but often I go weeks without. I do drink but not often due to dieting and training. When I do drink it will always be vodka and soda water to keep the calories down.
