For someone as on-the-move as actor Paul Dano, traveling back to your homebase can be the most appealing trip of all. Dano says Brooklyn tops his list of desired destinations, but if he's not heading home? He's keen on Japan as a future getaway: “I want to take a nice big trip and see all of it.”

Travel + Leisure, the National Media Partner of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, caught up with the Love & Mercy actor on the red carpet. While he may not have made it to Japan just yet, Dano says his work has brought him to some amazing places. Have a watch.
