American actor, writer, producer and film director Stanley Tucci is the newest celebrity fan to join Mandarin Oriental’s multimillion-dollar global advertising campaign “He’s a Fan/She’s a Fan”.
The campaign connects the hotel chain’s well-recognised symbol – the fan – with celebrities who are its regular guests.
In appreciation of their support, the group donates to each celebrity’s individual choice of charity. Tucci has chosen the global UN refugee agency UNHCR to benefit.
Tucci has won three Emmy and two Golden Globe awards and has also had a successful career behind the camera, including writing and directing the critically acclaimed “Final Portrait”.
Outside of work, he’s a fan of travelling. He loves exploring cultural sites, his favourite being Florence, where he spent much of his childhood. A self-confessed foodie, he has published several cookbooks and loves finding “perfect places to eat”.
When asked to describe Mandarin Oriental, he simply refers to it as ‘the lap of luxury’, and cites as his favourite hotel Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London.
Well-known portrait photographer Mary McCartney photographs each celebrity in a location of their choice, which, for them, best represents a feeling of wellbeing.
Tucci chose to be photographed in the beautifully renovated Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park.
