Because James Lipton Is Hot

I have been thinking about the Bernard Pivot questions at the end of each Inside the Actor's Studio.

Here's mine, because I know you were dying to know.

What's your favorite word?  
Schmata.  (Look it up in your Yiddish dictionary)

What's your least favorite word?

What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?
Zero Pressure.

What turns you off creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?
Unreasonable Expectations.

What sound or noise do you love?
The many versions of how kids say my name.

What sound or noise do you hate?
The gagging sound right before someone throws up.

What's your favorite curse word?
Fuck. (But Asshat is really good too).

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

What profession would you not like to do?

If heaven exists what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
Sorry, I don't believe in God.  But if we are talking just a nice place with a benevolent overlord - "Hi if your looking for Dick Cheney, take the down escalator".

I would add:

What scent or smell do you love?

What scent or smell do you hate?
Wet dog.

Ooohh! I just found the original questionnaire from Proust.  Let's make this even more fun!

That they can keep a secret.

What are your favorite color and flower?
Pink and Calla Lilies

Who are your heroes in real life?
Those who fight against animal cruelty.

Who are your heroes in fiction?
Horton and The Lorax.

How would you like to die?
Somewhere really unexpected like just fall over mid-conversation with a grandchild and really mess them up.

What is your motto?
Who owns this problem? (I ask this when I feel like I am making trouble for myself).

What are your favorite qualities in a man?
Money.  Joking people, joking.  Really it's that protective thing guys do that makes them seem like they can handle anything.
