When you were a little girl, did you see acting as a possible profession?
Sadly no, and I still dream that, one day, the Chicago Tribune will publish my essays.
Indiana Jones, Lara Croft or Professor Layton?
I liked all of their musicals.
Do you know Shirley O. Ward (a former engraver, now a shoemaker) from Melbourne?
Not personally, but my cousin has been briefly engaged to her. Then there was half a scandal about the curious suicide of a former lover, so their engagement came to a hasty ending.
Tilda, do you have something to say to your youngest fans?
Positively! Don't let the color of your skin hold you back. But buy a sunscreen or you'll get burned anyhow.
Which is your favorite karaoke song?
To get the crowd pleased I always make an encore of "Have a Little Faith in Me" by John Hiatt.
Your zodiac sign is Scorpio. Are you a typical Scorpio?
Heck no! I'm sometimes gloomy, quite dynamic, strong-minded and itchy. My relatives say that I'm also a little inconsistent but that I think it is common in artist.
Tilda, you are always fit. Which is your secret?
I have devised the Blue Diet: during the month of April I eat exclusively blue foods, like blueberries, blue crabs, blue Smarties and naturally deceased blue jays.
I heard that you will soon participate to a charity football match. Can you tell us why'd you decide to undertake such a humble effort?
I had to for a clause in my last contract, which prescribed me to fake an interest in good deeds.
And how long have you been feeling a need to address the issue of lead poisoning?
Oh, since always.
