Favorite interview:
  • Muhammad Ali
 
Strangest interview:
  • Tie: Macaulay Culkin and Joe DiMaggio
 
Most disappointing interview:
  • Neil Armstrong. For a story for Vanity Fair, I asked the notoriously curt hero if he ever dreamed he was back on the moon. One word answer: "No." I didn't believe him. The rest of us have recurring dreams of being back in school unprepared for a test; he experienced the seminal achievement of humankind and he'd never REM about the Sea of Tranquility?
