Secret Talent: Would not be a secret if I told

What is the best thing about your job? When I’m not working it.

What was your most embarrassing audition moment? When I got the part as Santa Claus in a third grade Christmas play. Horrid!

If you could live in any past era which would it be and why? When the gay rights movement was about to happen.

Who is your role model and why? I would say anyone creating art whether it be writing, photography, painting, filmmaking…All artists are my role models.

What do you do for fun? Have anonymous sex.

Do you have a good luck charm? I don’t believe in good luck charms.

Wackiest fan encounter: Running into Rupert Everett once in New York. I told myself before moving there that I wouldn’t get all start-struck and act like one of these silly fans. I stopped him and said, “Hey, you’re Rupert Everett.” I asked him if he was working on anything new and he said, “No, I’m just walking my dog.” I felt like a shit-heel after our meeting. It was nice to see him anyway.

Before I die, I want to: Do it all.

When I fly I have to have: A pen and a notebook.

If I had to spend $10 at my favorite fast food joint, I’d order: Two chili footlongs, fries and a large strawberry shake with real bits of strawberries in it.

My coolest article of clothing: I love my fleece coat. I sleep in it in the winter time. Feels like a blanket on me. Love it!

My first financial splurge was: Hmmm…I remember as a kid buying comic books, but never really reading them, and I used to buy things out of art stores like scented markers that smelled like candy and glue sticks, but didn’t know at the time they were called glue sticks or what they were used for.

When friends come over, we: Drink beer and watch porn and one thing leads to another…

Do you like to cook? If so, what? It’s not whether I like to or don’t like to. I just don’t know how. I would love to learn how to bake. I want to know how doughnuts are made.

TV show I never miss: ALL of the Real Housewives. I love my housewives.

If you could interview any celeb whom would it be and why? Robert Downey Jr. He’s funny and charming and he got through a very difficult time in his life and managed to come out on the other end in one piece. Oh, and Queen Meryl Streep of course who can do no wrong.

Anything about yourself you wish you could change? My obsessiveness. I wish I had the inability to get depressed.

I’ll eat sushi, but not: Liver, beets, chicken gizzards, squash.

What are your best and worst subjects in school? I rocked it out in English and anything creative like art or photography. Math and Science kicked my butt. My brain just doesn’t work that way.

If you could be granted 3 wishes, they’d be… To have a super human power of some kind, live in New York, do what I love while getting paid for it, while living in New York, have a partner.

If I could gay-marry anyone in the world, he/she would be… Don’t know. I haven’t met him yet.

Where on earth are you most dying to go? London, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Canada.

What’s the last thing that made you cry? Trying to figure out why my dad doesn’t like me, but now I don’t care whether he likes me or not. I’m ten times better than he is.

Do you ever wish you could just be a normal kid? No. Normal is boring.

What would people be surprised to know about you? That I’m an anal virgin.

If you had to name one song as your theme song, what would it be? Ah, geez! No idea. There are so many out there that kind of play as the soundtrack to my life.
