That's a great interview, I wish she would have asked him what his favorite body part was again! I wonder if it remains the same.

Really nice interview and I like Vincent's political statement.

Diane said...

There were a lot of very rude, very negative comments about this interview at the original site it was posted on. I guess some people have had a triple 'Sense of Humour' by-pass - or maybe Vincent is just too clever for them ;0)

I particularly liked the answer to 'When's bedtime?'
'When my eyes close'

I can think of a few people he should use that sledgehammer on. As for his favourite body part, I'd be happy if he'd use that on me :)

Isn't Il Buco the name of the restaurant where Nicole shows up unexpectedly right after Bobby is flirting with the waitress?

Sharon said...

There really are some nasty comments on that site - what is up with those people!

I really had a nice chuckle over his answers - I thought they were pretty witty! (and I do so appreciate humor).

Sandy said...

I haven't seen the original site of this article, but all I can say is maybe it's the Republicans doing the negative comments! haha
