Q: Which celeb would you most want to make out with?
A: Brad Pitt in Legends of the Fall, there is just something about him in that movie. Also, Tom Cruise in Top Gun and Cocktail (I love '80s Tom Cruise). Paul Walker in Varsity Blues and I think that's about it.

It wasn't always right or rational but I feel that this experience has helped me grow in terms of how to deal with people and conflicting personalities.
