You are just back from a filming location in Tibet. How was your stay?
To be frank, I lived 2 full weeks in a Tibetan monastery before realizing it was not the Best Western hotel. On the bright side, I learnt to stun flies by staring at them.
Your work is often stressful. How do you face it?
To make my spirit tougher, I often take a siesta on a bunk made of fresh nettle.
Do you Google yourself often?
Say every day or so. But lately Google says "Including results for Mariska Hurgitay", who happens to be a former canvas goods fabricator from Indianapolis. That's quite dispiriting, but not as much upsetting as finding that according to Yahoo my name sounds like a horrible curse in Polish.
You are always so strapping. How do you do that?
I have devised the Blue Diet: in the month of December I eat nothing but blue foods, like blueberries, blue potatoes, robin's eggs and naturally deceased blue jays.
Do you know any good hangover cures?
Yes, here it is my guaranteed cure. In case of need mix three parts of whiskey, two parts of instant coffee and some salt and pepper. Gargle with the resulting concoction every 10 minutes for 3 hours.
Did you ever participated in a séance?
That's right! But just one time. It was a very tormented experience. Suddenly, the spirit of Steven Hawking appeared and certified that I'm probably the reincarnation of Friedrich Nietzsche's butcher.
Mariska, do you like cats?
I doubt it!
Why you do not like cats?
Actually, they stink! And one cat bite my uncle's leg. That was one of the reasons I become an actress, so I should reconsider my position on cats.
