Celebrity Pivot Questionnaire Answers (or me clearing space on my DVR)

I'll provide the sets of answers and you match with the celebrities that answered during their Inside the Actors' Studio interview with James Lipton.

Here's the questions for a refresher:
1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on?
4. What turns you off?
5. What sound or noise do you love?
6. What sound or noise do you hate?
7. What is your favorite curse word?
8. What profession other than yours would you like to undertake?
9. What profession would you not like to attempt?
10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear god say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

A. 1. Laugh.
2. Hell.
3. My (spouse).
4. Arrogance. Arrogance, definitely.
5. My daughter laughing.
6. I think a lot of people have said this before, but I think the sound of a child in distress.
7. Bollocks.
8. When I was younger, I always said, if it didn't work out for me, that i would have been very interested in being a make-up artist I think. I just always loved painting faces.
9. I would not like to attempt being one of those poor people who are forced to work in factories filleting chickens and things like that. That would just be horrendous.
10. Care for a glass of champagne?

B. 1. Panache.
2. Should.
3. Food.
4. The dentist's drill.
5. I love the sound of an auditorium, like when the curtain goes down and the orchestra are tuning up. I love that sound
6. The dentist's drill. Any guess where I was today?
7. Bullshit. I think curse words should all be two syllables. A little more to get your mouth around.
8. I would like to be like the host of a variety show, you know like a Dave Letterman.
9. Chef. I've been a waiter in too many places, and I've seen how they . . . no. Chef for me.
10. The food is excellent.

C. 1. Honor.
2. My least favorite word is the n word no matter who says it, what context it's said in. I've known all my life that it was a word that was only meant to do harm. I hate it.
3. Words, not mine, but words.
4. Humiliation, especially toward a defenseless child.
5. It's the most precious and underrated sound in our lives, and that's silence.
6. The din that passes for pleasure and joy in public places like restaurants where people think that the only way they can show that they're enjoying themselves is to scream.
7. Mine is very dull because it is neither scatological nor obscene, it's profane, but it's offensive to some people and I apologize when I say it, Nowbut you can really tell I'm upset when I say it, Jesus Christ.
8. I would like to be a premier dancer. I would like to be a classical dancer, but with this provision, forever young and never injured.
9. That is very easy, one word, executioner.
10. You see (name), you were wrong, I exist, but you may come in anyway.

D. 1. I am fascinated with reality, the word reality.
2. Reality.
3. I like to see people happy. I like the feeling of community, it makes me feel safe.
5. I guess when my kids laugh. That feels good. When a crowd laughs, that feels good. Laughter, I like laughter. But not that humiliating "ha-huh."
6. Anything that will intentionally inspire fear.
7. I don't know if I have a favorite, like if someone was cursing me out and I go, "I'm really glad you used that one 'cause it's my favorite." But I usually start with golly and it gets progressively worse.
8. After seeing Ironman I thought maybe being a crimefighter, but in all honesty, employing the skills I already have. These hands have not done a hard day of work, all my heavy lifting in life has been psychological and emotional so the inside of my mind looks like Denzel's back in Glory.
10. Good job, congratulations. Something welcoming.

E. 1. Chambers, you know, "let's retire to chambers."
2. Bowel.
