What's the strangest dream you have ever had?
Not really a dream: I found myself in a bare gloomy place. A strange stench permeating the air. Then I remembered I got plastered at a rerun of "Body of Evidence" in a murky movie house near Tucson.
Do you know Sharon Green (a former vehicle painter, now a dog handler) from Atlanta?
No, I don't, but my uncle has been betrothed to her for 2 months. Then there was a public embarrassment about some licentious photographs sent by phone to the wrong people, so their engagement came to an abrupt ending.
What’s the best sound in the world?
It is the reassuring tingle of two emeralds touching each other. But please, write instead something more crowd-pleasing, for example "the merry laugh of a light-hearted child " or "the relaxing purr of an unworried kitten".
Your work is often stressful. How do you face it?
To strengthen my will, I often meditate on a hammock made of nails.
Ellen, what do you think about president Trump?
I guaranteed my uncle I would not embarass myself in public, so I'd pretend I did not understand the question.
What is the fuss about the future Oscar dispute?
Surely, this is a hot potato.
I've heard you are writing a book. Would you like to share with us a few details?
The actual details on my forthcoming book will soon be printed in another book. What I can divulge here is that it will be my unauthorized autobiography. It will be tattoed on legs and foreheads of 900 fans that will be dispersed in Portland as in a flash mob.
Ellen, can you share with us a memory of your role in "Life of the Party"?
Cripes! The set was full of flies. They were coming outta the goddamn walls!.
