Since I first saw an episode of the show, it has been one of my deepest desires to one day be interviewed by James Lipton on "Inside the Actor's Studio." It's actually on the bucket list. For a long time, I wanted to one day be a guest on the Rosie O'Donnell show, but now since that's 100% completely impossible, I've replaced it with Inside the Actor's Studio, which is only 99.9% completely impossible.
While I don't discredit the remote possibility that one day this dream of mine could be realized, I also recognize that its not very likely.
So indulge me.
At the end of the interview, James Lipton always asks a short series of questions from some French guy. Each actor/actress/singer/etc. answers the same 10 questions. Since I'll probably never give my answers on national television, I'm giving them here and now. I invite all of you to do the same if you should so desire.
I wonder if one day, I AM on the show, and if my answers will have changed...?
