What book would you like to see brought to the bigscreen and what book do you hope never gets adapted?

That is an impossible question to answer.

Another impossible question to answer.

It’s all an upside. That I get to answer these questions without having to put them in an envelope with a stamp and dropping it in the mail. Also, that I can buy whatever I want, whenever I want from wherever I want. That I don’t have to talk on the phone What advice would you give to someone trying to break into your profession?
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe don’t make becoming rich and famous an acting goal.

Yes, bringing “Girls of Tender Age” to the bigscreen. And finishing writing my novel What helps you get out of bed in the morning?:
My dogs.

Silly question.

About 30 of the 35 pairs of shoes that I bought.

What is the real reason behind answering these questions?
That someone cares about what I think, sorta.

My two brothers. My mother. I think that’s it.
