11. What would you do during The Purge? Would you commit any crimes?

ME: I haven’t seen any of those movies, but I do know what the premise is. I would be one of the people hiding, I think. I would maybe loot, but I would be too scared of getting shot. So I think I’d have to bury myself under a bed. Basically, I’d hide.

Bonus 12th question, from actor-writer-director Lake Bell: When was the last time you called your mother?

ME: This morning. I pretty much talk to her every day.

AVC: Did you call her with something specific in mind, or was it just a general “hi, how are you?” kind of call?

ME: I call her pretty regularly, but it’s not to just chat. It’s usually a question, where I’m asking her, “can you help me with this?” I still have that kind of relationship with her, where I revert to being a kid and I’m asking her for help. I’m sure that’s probably not great, but yeah, I call her for help because I think she’s really wise and has great advice.

AVC: What question would you like to ask the next person we talk to?

ME: I am always curious what the one vice is that someone wouldn’t give up. What vice wouldn’t you want to give up? It’s different for a lot of people. For some people, it’s smoking; others, it’s drinking.

AVC: What would be your answer?

ME: Smoking. I love it, and it’s time to quit.
