Inside the Actor's Studio

A couple weeks ago, Gypsy posted the Bernard Pivot questionnaire asked by the host, James Lipton, to each of his guests on Inside the Actor's Studio. When I saw her post, I was planning to post my responses the next day, but well didn't. So here are the questions and my responses. Please keep in mind that the nature of these questions is to answer them in rapid succession, which I have done.

What is your favorite word? Rutabaga. I love the way it rolls off my tongue.
What is your least favorite word? No.
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? The sound of water, like waves or a stream.
What turns you off? Narrow mindedness, uninformed debaters.
What is your favorite curse word? Shit.
What sound or noise do you love? Cat purrs, thunderstorms.
What sound or noise do you hate? Yelling, fighting, nails on the blackboard.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? A therapist or teacher of higher functioning special needs teens.
What profession would you not like to do? Lawyer, CEO.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? You may have taken the road less traveled by, but that has made all the difference.

While looking for links I happened upon this fun Personality Profiler Game, based on responses to this questionnaire given by actual show guests. I look it and was matched with Helen Hunt. I don't know how accurate that is, but I like the result. Helen's response to the last question was "You showed courage."

I think my answers are pretty much the same as yours. I tried the link and it matched me with Sissy Spacek. However I hadn't heard of any of the people concerned so I've no idea who she is, or what that means! Incidentally, did you intend to say that you're turned off by uniformed debaters, or was it a typo for uninformed?! If the latter then I agree entirely.

Sue, Sissy Spacek had the title role in "Carrie".

My favorite word is PESTO! It sounds so much like PRESTO! I'll be back to take this...I'm in trouble right now for being online too long.

See my later post re: Rikki and Pivot's questions. My celeb is Sarah Jessica Parker. Makes my heart go all aflutter. Love her more than I love my morning coffee. Almost.

What is "Rutabaga"? Is it food?

Lora said...

Catez you probably call a rutabaga a swede, it's a kind of turnip.

Catez said...

Oh thanks. Actually I like mashed Swede. (the vegetable not the people).
And eek! I was Carol Burnett!
