Do you ever Google yourself?
Say every three hours. But lately Google says "Including results for Willem Dufoe", who happens to be a retired judge from Phoenix. That's quite depressing, but not as much embarassing as discovering that according to Yahoo my name sounds like a horrible curse in Klingonese.
Could you tell us what's your earliest memory?
Not many people know that I have the blessing of total recall. Indeed, I remember pretty well the moment I was born. It was a night in July. An almost magic summer night, balsamic like the shade of an ancient tree. And I was there, soaked from head to toe with blood and other bodily fluids, in a room full of howling people. The first, but not the best day of my life...
You are a sissy. My whole existence is like a march into the darkness. And still you envy me.
Is there a deep moral behind your "Spider-Man"?
Why not! If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen - or something like that.
In an essay published on Annals of Semiotic Topics, prof. John Cox has observed that your roles are "a tragic compendium of modern conceptual constructivism". Any comment?
Well, I think that in his last article printed on Journal of Theological Inquiry, dr. George Powell totally disproved that fishy observation.
What motivates you to act?
The fact that, as Nero Wolfe said, "An actor can practice anywhere any time with anybody, and most of them do."
Who are your heroes?
Thomas Jefferson, Forrest Gump, and myself.
You seem to be always so joyful and sprightly. Do you also have a dark side?
It's difficult to confess it, but I do. I think that every person has a dark side. For example, when I look at another actor, my vision fades out and rage darkens my soul. And all of a sudden, I fight the need to expunge that moron from my sight and pirouette on his icy tomb. That is my amiable side... I let you imagine how my dark side is.
