10 Famous Questions

#1 Postby Baby Hercules » Wed Jul 25, 2012 12:38 pm

The Pivot Questionnaire ("Inside Actor's Studio" Questions)

These notorious ten questions originally came from a French series, "Bouillon de Culture" hosted by Bernard Pivot. They're better known as the questions that James Lipton asks every guest at the end of the lauded show "Inside the Actor's Studio." I'm always on the edge of my seat to hear what the people I admire are going to say. How would you answer them?

1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
4. What turns you off?
5. What is your favorite curse word?
6. What sound or noise do you love?
7. What sound or noise do you hate?
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
9. What profession would you not like to do?
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
______________________________________________
You could change that last one to "What would you most like to be remembered for after you're gone?"
