When your are not acting, which is your favored diversion?
I think that collecting garden gnomes rests my mind. I prefer to paint them in green and blue.
Are you aware of the rumors about you and the ottoman appearing in your last movie?
Snap! How did you find out!? I plead not guilty.
Do you do your own shopping?
I would like to, but I'm too hard at work performing paramount things for all the people to waste time on such trifles. Actually, I pay a group of MIT graduates to compile my grocery list and pass it along to a bunch of professional buyers around the globe. For the garbs, I ever hire a team of stand-in, each sharing with me the measure of one body part.
Do you Google yourself often?
Not so often anymore. Say every two hours. But lately Google often says "Including results for Donald Sotherland", who supposedly is a conservator from Denver. That's quite saddening, but not as much embarassing as discovering that according to Bing my name is similar to a terrible curse in Turkish.
Donald, you are always so strapping. Which is your secret?
I have embraced the Blue Diet: during the month of September I eat just blue foods, like blueberries, blue potatoes, blue corn and my special Smurf hash.
If you could choose someone to reincarnate in, who would it be?
Probably Bilbo Baggins.
You know that that's not a real person, right?
It's not!? How could you say that to me so empty-heartedly!?
What's the most uncanny nightmare you remember?
Not actually a dream: I found myself alone in an empty dark space. A fetid odour pervading the air. Then I remembered I got plastered at a screening of "Tiptoes" in a drab movie house near Memphis.
