The Pivot Questionnaire (“Inside The Actor’s Studio” Questions)

hello friends, opportunity to talk about yourself movie.

Talking about yourself is fun and revealing if you do it right.

I think that anybody’s craft is fascinating. A taxi driver talking about taxi driving is going to be very, very interesting. -James Lipton

I thought it would be fun for us to share answers to a series of questions asked by James Lipton at the end of every episode of “Inside the Actor’s Studio”.

(These questions originally came from a French series, “Bouillon de Culture” hosted by Bernard Pivot. One of the things that I like about Lipton, but is also low-key pretentious, is that Lipton is gracious enough to credit Pivot each time he segues to these questions.)

  2. What is your least favorite word?
