Which is the coolest flag in the world?
Surely the flag of Cardassia. If I'm not mistaken, it is blue and green with a tiny orange cow in the middle. Cardassia is a wonderful but unfortunate place. They are so poverty-stricken they recycle dandruff.
What would Taryn Manning do to solve the problem of criminality and violence that is threatening modern society?

What is the most uncanny nightmare that you remember?
I dreamed being blamed by a Genghis Khan impersonator, while I kept yelling "I did not eat my cousin's tiger".
In a paper appeared on Annals of Quantitative Criminology, prof. Eric N. Anderson described your movies as "a supernatural quintessence of newfangled symbolic accidentalism". Which is your reaction?

If I may ask, how do you invest the considerable fortune you make?
Say, when shell necklaces will be successful again I'll have the last laugh.
Taryn, you appear to be always so chirpy and lively. Do you also have a dark side?
I do. I think that every person has a dark side. For example, when I see a so-called artist, I shake with hatred and I grit my teeth. And suddenly, I sense the urge to seal those leering eyes for good. And then there is my dark side... You do not want to know about it.
If there was another movie produced about your life, who do you think should play you, and why?
According to my agent, Scarlett Johansson, because I always liked her as Norman Bates.
Apart from acting, is there something you do better than anybody else?
Actually, I can recite "When You Are Old" by Yeats in 5 different languages including Chinese.
