1) Favorite color?
Red, no doubt!
2) How did you discover the beauty of Hollywood’s Golden Era?
I found with my grandmother. It was for she who started watching old movies, and I never stopped.
3) Do you play a musical instrument?
Shamefully, no :( I always wanted to play an instrument but never had any lesson :’(
4) What music do you like to listen to?
Jass! Music of the 40s and 50s, and of course any music of Judy, Frank or Cole.
5)What’s the funniest thing you ever did?
A commercial! : D))) It was a scene of theater in college where we had to present a commercial. So we did a scene where a girl, in this case, me. was American, and one Brazilian boy, in case my friend tried to talk, but the boy did not speak English, and every time I opened my mouth to ask a question to the boy, he pulled me and kissed me for not having say nothing. It was the funniest commercial in the class, and he dropped me at the end, because it was lean in his arms and fell on top of me. Oh what a shame! hahahaha
6) If you could spent 24 hours with anyone. Who would it be?
I really need to answer? With Gene Kelly, of course! And not only would like to spend 24 hours with him, but days, months and years!
7) Favorite movie ever?
I guess I could not answer, as well as a musical favorite, but I can say again to be An American in Paris :)
8) What’s your idea of the perfect date?
Any collision with Gene Kelly in some alley of Paris. He could even run me over with a bicycle and take me to get ice cream by the “Inconvenient” falling on top of me! (Dating that happen because of an accident always get me in the clouds)
9)What’s the last movie you’ve seen?
Joan of Arc, with Ingrid Bergman.
10) What’s your favorite place in the world?
In my grandmother’s house. Since childhood, when my mother spoke not to go out alone or go somewhere I did not know any better, I always said that no matter where I was, I’d know to find my grandmother’s house.
11)Would you rather marry Gene Kelly or Frank Sinatra?
Gene Kelly, no doubt. Nothing against Frank, I love him too, but there is no competition against Gene!
I decided to answer those questions because I really liked of them too!Gets as a bonus :D))
1) Favorite old tv show and favorite new tv show?
My old favorite TV show was “The Three Stooges”. I have many memories of watching them with my grandfather. We saw many old TV shows together, but that was the most made him laugh, and me too! And my new favorite TV show is Glee. I love the idea of someone else hallucinated for musicals like me: D
2) Favorite animal?
I’m dying to get a cat. They are cuddly, lazy and love affection. But my favorite animal is the bird. I see the beautiful blue birds flying over the rainbow!
3) Most inspirational quote?
4) You have a chance to go back in time. What would you do?
I would dance since childhood (Ballet and Tap), was a big star of the musical, I would make a film with Gene, let him falling for me, and would be the inspiring muse of all his hottest choreography. He would ask me to marry him, and of course I accept. Would have many “little Genes” and “little Mays”; fun and lots of great parties in knowing Frank, Cole, Marilyn, Liz T. and JUDY! (Ah! I would be very careful to not let Judy and Gene alone together) ;D
5) If you could have lunch with 3 classic movie stars who would they be?
Judy Garland, Sinatra and Gene Kelly. There is no better way to spend a free time at a lunch.
6) What is one of your quirks?
I usually do what I want, where I want and anytime I want. Things like: singing in the middle of the classroom, down the steps of the stairs at school as Gene, Debbie and Donald in Singin in the Rain, and get drawing while a teacher is explaining the matter. People find it strange when they don’t know me, but then they love my way, And in college they love more, wow!
7) Favorite childhood movie?
I wish it was The Wizard of Oz, or The Blue Bird, but I had not seen anything of it until I was 15. So, I must say it was Peter Pan (I never wanted to grow up :)
8) Favorite musical?
I even have to answer that? I guess I should say it’s An American in Paris, because I was apoplectic with excitement at the end of this movie, but I also could not contain the tears with Summer Stock and I was shivery with The Pirate. I guess I’ll never decide.
9) Where would you want to be right now?
10) If you had a daughter, what would you name her?
Audrey! Everyone says I look like Audrey Hepburn, because wewe are very thin. Though the fact that I have a little more curves than her, because I do not deny the body of a good Brazilian. So this would be the name of my daughter because I think she will look like me:D
11) Would you rather marry Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart?
I think Jimmy, because after Gene, I think Jimmy’s cute!
