SI: Do sports play a big part in your life?
Bana: A huge part. I played [Australian Rules] footy when I was growing up, and I have been competing in motor racing ever since. It is what I do when I am not shooting. Without that, I would go absolutely insane.
SI: When you race, do opponents treat you differently because you're famous?
Bana: No, because I was racing before I was acting. If they are not clued in, they assume I will qualify at the back of the grid, but when I don't, they change their tune. I am happy to say I probably compete well enough not to be considered a celebrity entrant.
SI: Do you play much poker?
Bana: I don't. I'm an outdoors guy. I can't bring myself to go to a casino when the sun is shining.
SI: Will you be able to avoid all the celebrity poker tournament invites that are sure to start coming your way?
Bana: I tend not to go to anything that has the word celebrity attached to it. I'm safe.
