If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, living or dead, whom would it be? This is usually a question that comes up in general banter at the dinner table, but always draws a diverse mix of responses.

To make the decision easier, here’s three gentlemen that we think would be a delight at any dinner table.

1. Hugh Jackman

Hugh grew up in Sydney and completed a communications degree, majoring in journalism. Having graduated he began his journey to stardom and pursued drama at the western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Soon after he was offered leading roles and frequented as a TV guest. He is also an accomplished singer and has an avid love for theatre.

Would this home grown star be your guest of choice?

2. George Clooney

Born in Kentucky to a former beauty pageant queen and anchorman, George first tried to pursue a career in sport. However, after failing to be signed to a team after graduation he was offered a small acting part in a feature film. This lead to George now very accomplished acting career. His first major role was on the sitcom E/R in 1985 was ‘Ace’.

Did you know his middle name is Timothy? That’s only one of many questions you could ask George if he was your guest.

3. Robert Redford

Raised in California, Robert wasn’t a saint and was often caught in the center of trouble. Nearing his high school graduation he lost his college baseball scholarship because of his drunken run-ins with authorities. Instead, he drifted across the states and spent time working in the California oil fields until he had saved enough money to move to Europe where he began studying art in Paris.

What would you ask Robert if you had the chance?

Three equally interesting guests, but who would you choose to sit at your dinner table?


Rebecca Wilson

The daughter of two baby boomers, she has built the online community for over 60s by listening carefully to the issues and seeking out answers, insights and information for over 60s throughout Australia. Rebecca is an experienced marketer, a trained journalist and has a degree in politics.

  1. Tsk! You forgot to include Richard Gere!!

  2. Hugh. I love Robert Redford but I think he might be a little hard to get on with. I also like George Clooney, but Hugh Jackman seems like a really nice, down to earth kind of man.

  3. George, but if Chris Hemsworth had been included on the list I could spend the whole time just drinking in his gorgeous looks.

  4. Robert Redford please would be nice to have a man in the house

  5. Robert Redford he is closer our vintage

  6. Hugh Jackman in a heart beat. He seems to be able to talk about a wide range of subjects. Plus he thinks his wife is pretty special and doesn’t mind telling the world about it.
