What Are Your Answers to James Lipton’s ’10 Questions’?

April 23, 2015

What would you say in your acceptance speech if you won an Oscar? Have you ever given that any thought…yet? And have you imagined what it would be like to sit across the Inside the Actors Studio‘s James Lipton to answer his famous 10 Questions? You know, those identical questions he’s asked each of his 200-plus celebrity guests at the end of every show? It’s intriguing to listen to each actor’s answers, and it’s surprising just how much these questions reveal about people’s strong feelings and private thoughts. Here are the legendary 10 questions listed:

1. What is your favorite word?

2. What is your least favorite word?

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?

4. What turns you off?

5. What is your favorite curse word?

6. What sound or noise do you love?

7. What sound or noise do you hate?

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

9. What profession would you not like to do?

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

Hopefully we’ll get to hear your answers in a one-on-one interview with Lipton on Bravo. But until then, it’s fun to get into the spirit and ask and answer the questions with friends and colleagues. We’d love to hear your answers too, so please share! (Please just use punctuation symbols when responding to question number 5!)
