I could get used to Don Imus’ (ex) 46th floor aerie in the CBS studios… Floating above Times Square and the Hudson River, I had a grand ol’ time recording a promo for Belle in the Big Apple. John and Charlie, the most handsome men in the Simon & Schuster digital empire, came at me with an Inside the Actor’s Studio arsenal of questions.
An amuse bouche:
Handsome S&S men: What are your five most important books?
Me: Play It As It Lays & Slouching Toward Bethlehem (Didion), The Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (Anita Loos), The Sun Also Rises (Hemingway), Gone With The Wind (Margaret Mitchell). Yep, that’s a weird mix (and that’s six).
Handsome S&S men: What is your fantasy profession?
Me: To be a vigneron. I want to work the vines, get paid to sample exquisite grape juice.
Handsome S&S men: What’s your advice to young women thinking of making their own moves to the Big Apple?
Me: Move to New York with a dream bigger than yourself or a one year plan.
