1. What brings you the great­est joy? My son.

2. What is the best ad­vice you’ve ever re­ceived? From my mother: Do unto oth­ers as you want done to you.

3. What char­i­ties do you support? I am a true sup­porter of hu­man­i­tar­ian aid. Emer­gen­cyre­sponse re­sults in con­flict zones are so im­me­di­ate that I have a real ap­pre­ci­a­tion for peo­ple who work in the re­lief world. I try to in­te­grate my work with the UN and my or­gan­i­sa­tion, Africa Out­reach Project, to support that.

4. What TV shows can’t you miss? Any form of crime show. I’m a sucker for all of them.

5. What’s on your bucket list? Climb­ing Mount Kil­i­man­jaro.

6. Who do you follow on so­cial me­dia? I don’t follow any­body, but I some­times check in on Seth MacFar­lane’s Twit­ter ac­count be­cause I find him very funny, and Chelsea Han­dler’s ac­count. And Steve Martin’s got a good one go­ing, too.

7. What do you wish some­one would in­vent? Some­thing that makes iron­ing sheets eas­ier. There’s some­thing so nice about crisp, crisp, crisp sheets.

8. ef­fect What on book you? had The a Lit­tle pro­found Prince by An­toine de Saint-Ex­upéry.

9. Do you have a se­cret tal­ent? I’m very good at clean­ing. I would be an ex­cel­lent but­ler.

10. What ir­ra­tional fears do you have? A fear of fly­ing.

12. What are your vices? My liquor cab­i­net (al­ways a good wine, a nice Ar­magnac and vodka) and starch.

13. What’s your go-to karaoke song? I’ll tell you what my not- go-to karaoke song is. I learned it the hard way. ‘Danny Boy’. That is a long song.

14. Of the seven deadly sins, which are you guilty of? I’m prob­a­bly guilty of all of them, but I do think I have a sense of pride that some­times gets in the way.

15. What would be your last meal? Oh, easy: a good bowl of udon noo­dles.

16. Favourite restau­rant in the world? That’s re­ally tough… Sushi Park in Los An­ge­les.

17. Favourite ho­tel? The Four Sea­sons Re­sort in Mal­dives.

19. What should ev­ery woman try at least once in her life? Do­ing the com­plete op­po­site of what you’re told.

20. How would you like to be re­mem­bered? For be­ing au­then­tic.
