Do you believe in a world where E.T. is not sent back home?

Eh I'm more of an optimist, so like E.T. I'm usually set on plans going the way I had hoped.

 Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s picture book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ tells the story of a little boy confronted with Monsters, but first he dresses as a wolf: what was your favorite costume as a child?

It's hard to choose, but it was a mixture between my Harry Potter capes or Spider-Man.

Have you cried recently and, if yes, why?

Yeah weirdly enough I did this morning. Moving to Amsterdam, and being back in NYC brought back both happy and sad memories. Sometimes I overthink and freak myself out. Times are different.

 Do you believe in ghosts or aliens?


Does the name Donald Trump remind you of the male sexual organ, the penis, and could it be that this helps his popularity?

Clearly it's the only logical explanation to his popularity.

 Who is the bigger freak, Captain Hook or Peter Pan?

Tough, but I'm going to go with Peter Pan ha. I mean he comes into kids windows at night with green tights and takes them to a place called never never land, sounds a little questionable to me. 

 Are you afraid of the dark and what is your favorite horror movie?

Not really afraid of the dark luckily, and I don't really have a favorite, but one I watched when I was like 6-7 called the Blair Witch Project left me never forgetting it. 

 Is ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ too sick to be told to children?

No I think children nowadays have a lot more to be worrying about.

 Would you enjoy lunching with Pamela Anderson?

Eh well I wouldn't say no if she asked.

 Or would you rather spend an evening with Norman Bates (from ‘Psycho’ or from ‘Bates Motel’)?

Definitely Norman Bates. But would it be in his mindset of him or his mother is the question... The first time I watched that movie I was mind fucked.

If you had to walk to the centre of the Earth, would you pack sunglasses?

Never a bad idea to have sunglasses.

 Do you find Captain Jack Sparrow well dressed, possibly cute or of zero interest?

If you're asking if I'd sleep with him, then the answer is yes. 

 Can you both spend hours watching series and live, or are series making life bigger?

Personally there's every so often I'll binge watch a series if it's good enough, but to be honest it's not really productive.

 Are you haunted by a memory in particular?

Well my first summer job I had when I was like 14 was cutting down bushes and trees for this older lady my father knew. One day I was minding my business, cutting off a branch and I snake fell from one of the branches above and landed right on my shoulder. I flung it off, ran to the porch and stayed there in panic until my dad picked me up. Let's just say snakes aren't my favorite reptile because of it.

 Can you imagine Inspector Gadget making out with Donald Duck?

Anythings possible. But I'm pretty sure there's a law against it though haha.

 Did someone ever read you ‘Cinderella’?

Nah, i actually don't ever think I even watched the movie. But my sisters always watched 'A Cinderella story' with Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray, and I was secretly into it.

 Do you find inspiration in ‘Mad Men’ or is it just too painfully retro?

I only watched it once or twice, but I was kind of stoned so I never got into it.

Could the word ‘season’ have the same meaning in fashion and in series, or is this question just too lame?

Yes same meaning and yes too lame.

 In ‘24H’, isn’t Mr Sutherland a bit overstressed and the whole story a bit too serious? Is fashion that serious or stressful?

I can tell you like movie references by the end of this interview haha. I think fashion is taken sometimes TOO serious, I think the important thing is just to stay true to yourself and don't wear things just because it's a trend or in season; Wear it because you feel comfortable and confident.
