Ten questions by Bernard Pivot

These 10 questions originally came from a French series, “Bouillon de Culture” hosted by Bernard Pivot. It is probably more familiar to many as the question James Lipton asks at the end of “Inside the Actor’s Studio.”

I’ve found these questions interesting among friends. It’s amazing what the simple answers to these questions reveal about a person’s thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
