Ario Bayu recently shot to fame as the country’s new bad boy with his role in the film “Catatan Harian Si Boy” (“Boy’s Diary”).

The remake of the 1980s classic saw Bayu racing cars, chasing girls and beating up his enemies on the mean streets of Jakarta. But in reality, Bayu would rather read a book than throw punches and would prefer to take his mountain bike for a spin on the weekend than get behind the wheel of a new BMW.
