We are here tonight with Viggo Mortensen, who just saw the birth of his last movie. Hi, Viggo, and welcome to An Afternoon With Somebody.
It's a pleasure being here, your pleasure.
Is there something you would like to do right now?
Yes! Watch my favorite reality eating hotdogs.
Is there a deep moral hidden in "A History of Violence"?
Yes, that there's no place like home.
I've heard you are writing a book. Would you like to share with us a few details?
The details on my forthcoming book will soon be published in the book itself. What I can divulge now is that it will be a guide to choosing wallpaper. It will be tattoed on legs and backs of 1,000 models that will be set loose in Anaheim as in a flash mob.
Do you have any birthmark?
I have a tiny gerbil shaped birthmark on my left leg. Probably my mother did accidentally eat a gerbil while she was pregnant.
Viggo, are you superstitious?
I think I will! I have to shake 3 times a little bag with my baby teeths before a critical interview.
What do you eat between meals?
Pears with balsamic vinegar, a cheddar cheese slice, four pineapples, and a glass of gin.
What’s the best sound in the world?
It is the calming swish of a roll of new banknotes touching each other. However, my agent urges you to write instead something more crowd-pleasing, for example "the first 'dad' of your kid" or "the cheery laugh of an angelic kid ".
