If you didn't grow up to become known as the actor Austin Butler, what do you think you would have done?
I would have enrolled at Harvard University, signed up for Anthropological Ethics 101, failed, and bailed out after a month with an online massively multiplayer videogames addiction.
Do you do your own shopping?
I would like to, but I'm so occupied doing very significant things to waste time on things of no consequence. I have a group of experts to compile my grocery list and e-mail it to a gang of pro buyers spread around the globe. For the garbs, I ever retain a crew of doubles, each sharing with me one body part measure.
If I may say so, Austin, you are well known for your peculiar requests when staying in hotels. Can you explain us why and maybe make an example of something you usually ask?
Lately I've found that I can't stay anywhere without champagne-infused chamomile-tea bags or one of Kathryn Bigelow's unreleased movies delivered everyday to my suite.
If you could choose an animal to reincarnate in, which one would it be?
I'd have to say a chipmunk.
How is your relationship with movie directors?
I was always mutinying against them when I was a youngster, you know, fight da power and all that jazz, but now I simply ignore them when they ramble.
Have you ever participated in a séance?
Surely! But just one time. It was a very uncanny experience. Suddenly, the ghost of Alan Turing appeared and hypothesized that almost surely I'm the reincarnation of Henry Ford's greengrocer.
I heard that you will soon be busy with a charity marathon. Would you tell us why'd you decide to undertake such an embarrassing effort?
I was obliged by my best friend, who wouldn't stop repeating how it would have been such a good idea.
And how long have you been feeling a need to address the issue of bronchitis?
Since I thought to have it.
