Ivy Fabulous

In 1967, Tiger Beat Magazine asked the following questions to their featured matinee idols.

How would your mother describe you in one word?  determined (or is that stubborn?)

What is your favorite flower? peonies

What is the most insane question you’ve ever been asked? This question makes me feel like I need to have more adventures! “Will you marry me?” was an insane question in the best possible sense.

What word in the English language do you wish you had invented?  incandescent

Where would you like to live? I’m a Chicago kind of girl, but I’d love to travel all over.

What is the quote that comes to your mind? “Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” -Groucho Marx

What animal best describes the kind of man you’re interested in?  A dog- sweet, cuddly, loyal, and hopefully well-trained  ;)

What do you miss about your childhood? Playing with Barbies- I had some very complicated relationships and narratives going on.  But really, it always came down to who got to make out with the few eligible Ken dolls.

If you could change your name, what would you change it to? A lot of hours went into Ivy Fabulous- I’m going to stick with that!

What is the main fault of your character? I’m a procrastinator, which can lead to last-minute brilliance or total half-assery.

Who is your favorite historical figure? Can I go for author?  That’s a tie between Roald Dahl and Kurt Vonnegut- such wicked humor.

Describe how you kiss in one word.  Ardently.

What in the world do you least desire? Someone else’s idea of success- I can define that myself.

Finish this sentence: “Happiness is a thing called…” new shoes

In every episode of “Inside the Actor’s Studio” James Lipton asks the following questions (originated by French interviewer Bernard Pivot) to the guest movie star:

What turns you on?  creative expression, kissing and cuddling, lingerie, laughing

What turns you off? overly-competitive people, line-cutters, bad drivers (all three are often related)

What is your favorite word?  crazypants

What sound or noise do you love? my dog’s sighs as he falls asleep

What sound or noise do you hate? I can’t stand chewing noises.  I hate when people think they can sing but are awful (hence I do not often frequent karaoke bars or watch American Idol).

What profession other than yours would you like to attempt? I think I’d make a good event planner, as long as I can get over that procrastination thing!

What profession other than yours would you not want to attempt? I’d never want to be an accountant- I’m pretty hopeless with math.

What is your favorite swear word? Wanker, especially when Lilly Bloom says it.  :)  I really like “cunt,” but it doesn’t just have to be a swear word; it’s more versatile than that.  Read “reclaiming cunt” from The Vagina Monologues, and that pretty much says it.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear god say to you as you enter the Pearly Gates? “Can I get you a drink?”
