He said that recently, he was talking to a friend of his who said to start a family young, which made him think about having kids in the near future.

“You know I was talking to my mate Duncan, we’ll drop the name, why now, Duncan Jones, who directed me in Mute, and he’s 47 or so and has just had his second child and he said ‘Robert, if you can get started on the kids earlier do. I’m knackered.’”

He also said that while he is enjoying his life right now, the older he gets the more “restless” he is, which is why he has turned to meditation.

“I think that I’m getting more restless as I get older. That’s why meditation is good for me because it reminds me that I don’t have to be constantly doing that.”

“It’s not necessarily running away from anything. Luckily, I don’t have many demons that I quarrel with. Meditation teaches me how to be OK with myself, be OK with no noise or distractions.”
