When your are not acting, which is your favored pastime?
I think that collecting garden gnomes is quite relaxing. I like to paint them in brown and violet.
If you didn't grow up to become known as the actress Maggie Smith, what do you think you would have done?
I would have enrolled at Brown University, signed up for Foods Chemistry 101, failed, and bailed out a month after that with a gambling addiction.
You seem to be always so sunny and positive. Do you also have a dark side?
It's hard to confess it, but I do. Each person has two sides. For example, when I look at a colleague, I shudder with aversion and my teeth rattle with fury. And then, without warning, I feel a compulsion to erase her heckling smile. And then there is my dark side... You do not want to discover it.
Maggie, which is your method for perfect skin?
It is a monthly dousing with cement.
Maggie, do you like elk?
For which reason you do not like elk?
To be frank, they stink! And one elk bite my grandpa in his intimate bits. That was one of the motives I decided to become an artist, so I should probably reconsider my opinion about elk.
Do people scream your name and follow you everywhere you go?
Totally! People love me so much. I really make no distinction as to gender or occupation: I'm known to cheer renowned Oscar award winners and despondent sewer inspectors to the same extent. It's nice to know that there are at least 16 plazas with my name in two different countries, not counting Kiribati and Sierra Gordo.
If I may ask, do you have any peculiar phobia?
Yes, actually I do! I suffer with an unreasonable fear for cookies, because of a bizzarre accident happened to my cousin. I'm also terrified by Ouija boards, but that is quite normal.
