I got to give him the Inside the Actor’s Studio/Bernard Pivot questionnaire at Auto Club Speedway during the Pepsi Max 400 race weekend.

His least favorite word struck a chord with me because I’ve been guilty of using it and I have really made a concerted effort in the past few months to not use it anymore. It’s just not cool and totally unnecessary.

What is your favorite word? Cool

What is your least favorite word? Retard. I hate it when people use that word.

What turns you on? My wife

What turns you off? Smelly people

What sound or noise do you love? The sound of an engine running

What sound or noise do you hate? Nails on a chalkboard

What is your favorite curse word? Damn
