Okay this 17 Again interview from Vanity Fair's German website is a little bit strange for how open he is but w/e. I've stolen the translation from FF but I've included both versions and if any of the German speakers on here have any corrections to suggest, let me know:

Ich war der König der Nerds

Zac Efron im Interview

Kann man mit 17 cool sein? Was tun gegen Liebeskummer? Nerven die Paparazzi? Mädchen-Schwarm Zac Efron hat Antworten

Zac Efron versucht sich mit der High School-Komödie “17 Again“ von seinem Disney-Zuckerbuben-Image frei zu spielen. Mit Erfolg. Zeitweise ist der 21-jährige Hollywood-Hotshot sogar richtig cool…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Ist man mit 17 Jahren cooler als mit 21? Oder umgekehrt?

Zac Efron:
Ich glaube nicht, dass Coolness vom Alter abhängt. Aber ganz ehrlich gesagt finde ich mich weder damals noch heute cool. Mit 17 tut man vielleicht nur so super-cool, um die eigenen Unsicherheiten und Fehler zu überdecken.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Wären Sie gerne noch einmal 17?

Zac Efron:
Nein, ich bin ganz froh, dass ich schon ein bisschen älter bin. Mit 17 steht man an der Schwelle zum Erwachsenenwerden. Das ist mitunter ganz schön aufregend. Aber ich erinnere mich noch gut daran, dass ich damals eigentlich gar nicht erwachsen werden wollte.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Warum denn nicht?

Zac Efron:
Ach, ich fühlte mich ganz wohl mit den Dingen, die Teenager eben so machen: Skateboard fahren, Musik hören, ins Kino gehen…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
…den Mädchen nachschauen…

Zac Efron:
…(lacht) aber nur ganz heimlich. Dazu war ich nämlich viel zu schüchtern.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Auf der High School waren Sie doch sicher der Mädchen-Schwarm schlechthin, oder etwa nicht?

Zac Efron:
Überhaupt nicht! Ganz im Gegenteil. Die Jungs, die bei den Mädchen gut ankamen, waren meistens richtige Sportskanonen. Ich war nie besonders gut im Sport. Für die Basketball-Szenen in “17 Again“ habe ich lange trainieren müssen. Ich habe zwar auf der High School auch Basketball gespielt, aber da waren Typen am Start, die waren fast doppelt so groß wie ich. Da hatte ich nie eine Chance. Mir ging es eher so wie meinem Film-Alter-Ego Matthew Perry. Der hat mir erzählt, dass er auf der High School der “König der Nerds“ war. Das beschreibt auch mich ziemlich genau.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Hatten Sie als Teenager überhaupt genug Zeit für sich selbst? Immerhin sind Sie schon mit 16 aktiv ins Filmbusiness eingestiegen.

Zac Efron:
Ich hatte schon eine etwas andere Jungend als die meisten Kids, das ist wahr. Aber ich vermisse eigentlich nichts. Ich hänge auch heute noch viel mit meinen Freunden von früher herum. Die sind jetzt auf dem College – ich eben im Filmbusiness. Das ist alles. Weder Sie noch ich bekommen etwas geschenkt.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Man könnte allerdings sagen, dass Sie etwas mehr Publicity haben als ihre College-Freunde. Wie fühlt man sich denn so als Hollywood-Poster-Boy?

Zac Efron:
Natürlich freut es mich riesig, dass mich anscheinend so viele Leute mögen. Aber ich bin weit davon entfernt, dass mir der Erfolg zu Kopf steigt. Dafür sorgt schon meine Familie. Zuhause werde ich ganz sicher nicht als Filmstar behandelt, sondern da sagt meine Mutter: “Zac, trag doch mal schnell den Müll raus!“ Na ja, es stimmt schon, dass ich mich nicht mehr ganz so spontan in der Öffentlichkeit bewegen kann wie früher. Da muss ich selbst das Pizza-Essen vorher planen. Aber das ist schon okay. Was ich allerdings nicht ganz verstehen kann ist, warum immer zehn Paparazzi um mich herum sind und wie wild drauflos knipsen, wenn ich mir mal am Zeitungstand ein paar Magazine kaufe.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Wie geht denn Ihre Familie mit Ihrem Erfolg um?

Zac Efron:
Die sehen das locker. Obwohl… Meine Mutter hat unlängst mal zu mir gesagt: “Wir haben ein Monster kreiert!“ Aber das war nur Spaß!

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Was war denn der beste Rat, den Sie von Ihren Eltern je bekommen haben?

Zac Efron:
Mein Vater hat mir mal gesagt: “Zac, wenn du etwas machst, dann mach es richtig. Versuch immer dein Bestes zu geben.“ Das war an dem Tag, als ich meine Noten vorzeigen musste und in einem Fach eine 2 statt einer 1 hatte. Das hat meinen Vater sehr enttäuscht. Er sagte auch noch: “Wäre es so viel schwerer für dich gewesen, eine 1 zu bekommen?“ Das habe ich mir gemerkt.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Sie wollen also immer und überall der Beste sein?

Zac Efron:
Nein, das nicht. Aber ich will immer mein Bestes geben.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Haben Sie sich auch schon mal wie Mike im Film in eine fast doppelt so alte Frau verliebt?

Zac Efron:
Na ja, nicht gerade in die Mutter meines Freundes, aber sicher hatte ich auf der High School schon den ein oder anderen Schwarm. Ich erinnere mich noch gut an unsere Biologielehrerin. Die war vielleicht scharf…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Wann haben Sie denn zum ersten Mal ein Mädchen richtig geküsst?

Zac Efron:
Sie meinen den ersten Kuss mit Hintergedanken? Das war auf der High School, als ich 17 war, wenn ich mich recht erinnere. Mein erster Kuss war sehr romantisch. Wir waren in einem Baumhaus und haben überall Kerzen aufgestellt und angezündet. Und als es draußen dunkel wurde, haben wir uns leidenschaftlich geküsst. Mehr allerdings nicht…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Im Film “17 Again“ wird sexuelle Enthaltsamkeit während der Teenager-Zeit propagiert. Wie stehen Sie denn zu diesem Statement?

Zac Efron:
Dazu sage ich jetzt lieber nichts, denn egal was ich sagen würde – ich würde wohl jemanden vor den Kopf stoßen…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Was ist Ihre große Liebe – die Schauspielerei oder die Musik?

Zac Efron:
Am schönsten wäre es, wenn ich in Zukunft immer wieder beides verbinden könnte. Mal sehen, was die Zeit so bringt. Begonnen hat alles mit Michael Jackson und “Thriller“. Meine Mutter hörte wochenlang im Auto nur diese eine CD. Und da saß ich eben auf dem Rücksitz und habe angefangen mitzusingen.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Sie sind schon länger mit dem “High School Musical“-Star Vanessa Hudgens zusammen. Ein schöner Zug von Ihnen ist, dass Sie Ihre Liebe nicht vor Ihren Fans verstecken.

Zac Efron:
Warum sollte ich? Da würde ich mir ja als Lügner oder Heuchler vorkommen. Ganz abgesehen davon ist es doch etwas ganz Wunderbares, unsere Liebe vor Gott und der Welt zu zeigen. Wir haben doch nichts zu verbergen.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Lesen Sie eigentlich das, was im Internet über Sie und Vanessa verbreitet wird?

Zac Efron:
Nein, das meiste ist doch sowieso nur Quatsch. Vanessa und ich sind glücklich miteinander. Nur das zählt. Vanessa ist ein ganz wunderbarer Mensch mit einem großen Herzen. Wenn man mit jemanden zusammen ist, dann geht es doch nicht um Äußerlichkeiten, sondern darum, ob man ganz tief im Innern zueinander passt. Ich habe schon ein paar Beziehungen hinter mir, wo sich nach einiger Zeit herausgestellt hat, dass wir uns eigentlich nichts zu sagen hatten.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Was machen Sie, wenn Sie mal Liebeskummer haben?

Zac Efron:
Ich stelle mich auf mein Skateboard und düse los. Früher bin ich sogar in meiner Wohnung herumgeskatet. Aber seit ich mir vor einiger Zeit ein Haus gekauft und mir sogar ein paar schicke und ziemlich teure Möbel hineingestellt habe, lasse ich das Indoor-Skaten lieber sein.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Sie waren lange im Gespräch, um die Hauptrolle in einem “Footloose“-Remake zu spielen. Warum sind Sie da ausgestiegen?

Zac Efron:
Ich habe eigentlich nie etwas gegen dieses Remake gehabt. Aber nach längerem Nachdenken bin ich zu dem Schluss gekommen, nicht schon wieder ein Musical machen zu wollen. Ich fühle mich jetzt reif für neue Herausforderungen.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Ist bei Ihnen zurzeit also alles eitel Sonnenschein? Oder gibt es auch etwas, das Sie bedauern?

Zac Efron:
Ich fühle mich zurzeit wirklich rundherum glücklich. Was ich bedauere? Da fällt mir ein: Als ich vor kurzem für einen Pressetermin in Rio de Janeiro war, konnte ich wegen der vielen Paparazzi nicht an den wunderschönen Copacabana-Strand. Das fand ich wirklich schade. Aber das nächste Mal, wenn ich in Rio bin, wird mir das sicher nicht mehr passieren.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Und was werden Sie nach diesem Interview machen?

Zac Efron:
In mein Hotelzimmer gehen und Vanessa eine SMS schicken. Denn für einen Anruf nach Los Angeles ist es noch viel zu früh.

"I was the King of the Nerds"

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Do you think people are cooler at 17 than 21. Or is it the other way round?

Zac Efron:
I don’t think that coolness is dependent on age. But to be totally honest, I don’t think I was cool then or now. Perhaps it's the case that at 17 you’re trying to act super-cool so that you can hide your own insecurities and flaws though.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Would you like to go back and be 17?

Zac Efron:
No, I’m completely happy that I’m a bit older now. When you’re 17 you’re right on the cusp of being an adult and it’s can be pretty unsettling at times. But I still remember clearly that I really didn’t want to become adult back then.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
How come?

Zac Efron:
Hmmm, I felt completely happy doing the things that teenagers do: skateboarding, listening to music, going to the cinema…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
…checking girls out…

Zac Efron:
…(laughs) but only very discretely. I was far too shy for all of that.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
So you must have been a complete heart-throb at High School though…?

Zac Efron:
Absolutely not! Totally the opposite! The guys that the girls liked were mostly the sports stars. I was never particularly good at sport. For the basketball scenes in 17 again I had to practise really hard. Sure, I played ball at high school, but the other guys were all twice as tall as I was. I never had a chance. My school experience was kind of like that of my film alter-ego, Matthew Perry. He told me that he was the “king of the geeks” at High School. That describes me pretty accurately too.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
As a teenager did you have enough time for yourself then? I mean, you were already part of the film industry at the age of 16…

Zac Efron:
Of course I had a slightly different childhood than most kids, sure. But I don't really miss out. I still hang out with a lot of my friends from then now. They’re at college now - - I’m making films. That’s the only difference. None of us got a free ride.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
You could say, that you have more publicity than your college friends though. What's it like being a Hollywood poster boy?

Zac Efron:
Of course I’m really happy that so many people seem to like me. But I’m far from big-headed about it all. My family makes sure of that. At home I’m definitely not treated like a film star, but my Mom will be like: „Zac, take the rubbish out quickly, will you?“ Yeah, I mean, it’s true that I can’t go out as spontaneously as I used to. Even going for pizza is something I need to plan. But that’s okay. What I don’t understand is why there are always 10 paparazzi crowded around me und snapping pictures like crazy when I’m just buying a few magazines at a kiosk.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
How does your family handle your success?

Zac Efron:
They’re really laid back about it. Although…my Mom said the other day, „we’ve created a monster!“ But she was just kidding.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
What’s the best advice that your parents have ever given you?

Zac Efron:
My Dad once said to me: „Zac, when you do something, then do it properly. Try to always give your best.” That was on the day that I had to show him my grades and I’d got a B instead of an A in one subject. That had disappointed him. He said, “Would it have been that much more difficult to get an A?” I’ve always remembered that.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
So you want to be the best at everything?

Zac Efron:
No, not that. But I always want to give my all.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Have you also fallen in love with a woman almost twice your age, like your character in the film?

Zac Efron:
No, not like with my friends’ moms, but yeah, at High School there might have been the odd crush. I still remember our biology teacher. She was something…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
When did you kiss a girl properly for the first time?

Zac Efron:
You mean, when was my first kiss with ulterior motives? That was at High School, when I was 17, if I remember correctly. My first proper kiss was really romantic. We were in a tree house and had lit candles and laid them out everywhere. And as it went dark out we were kissing passionately. But that was all…

VANITYFAIR.DE:
In the film „17 again“ teenage abstinence is propogated. Is that something you believe in?

Zac Efron:
I’d rather not say anything about that, because whatever I say, I'd manage to offend somebody.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
What is your biggest love – music or acting?

Zac Efron:
It would be ideal if I could always combine the two. We’ll have to see what happens. It all started with Michael Jackson and “thriller.” My Mom listened to nothing but that CD for weeks. And I was in the backseat of the car as it was playing and started singing along.


Vanityfair: You’ve been with your costar Vanessa Hudgens for a while now. One of the nice things about you two is that you don’t hide your love from your fans.

Why should I? That’d just make me look like a liar or hypocrite. Never mind the fact that it’s just something really wonderful that all the world and his brother can bear witness to our love. We just don’t have anything to hide.


VanityFair: Do you read what’s written about you and Vanessa in the internet then?


No, most of it is just nonsense anyway. Vanessa and I are happy together. That’s all that counts. Vanessa is a totally amazing person with a big heart. When you’re in a relationship, appearances and what’s happening on the outside aren’t important: it’s about whether you fit together deep down inside. I’ve already had a couple of relationships where it became obvious after a while that we just didn’t have anything to say to each other.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
What do you do when you’re lovesick?

Zac Efron:
I just get on my skateboard and off I go. I used to skate around my apartment but I’ve just got myself a new house with a few pieces of really cool but expensive furniture so I’m sort of passing on indoor-skating for now.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
You were in negotians to star in the remake of „footloose“ for a long time. Why did you decide to give it a miss?

Zac Efron:
I’ve honestly never had anything agains the remake- But after a lot of thought I came to the conclusion that doing another musical just wasn't what I wanted to do right now. I feel like I'm mature enough now to try new challenges.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Is everything always sunshine and roses for you? Or is there anything that you regret?

Zac Efron:
Right now I feel completey happy. What do I regret? There is something: when I was in Rio de Janeiro recently for a media appointment, I couldn’t go to the amazing Copacabana beach because of the paparazzi. That was a real shame. But next time I’m in Rio, I definitely am not going to miss out.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
And what are you going to do after this interview?

Zac Efron:
I’m going to go back to my hotel room and send Vanessa a text. It’s still way too early to ring LA.

Oh and this is friends only because otherwise the copyright police might ban it.

Fuck it. If they can't be bothered to conduct a legitimate interview without stealing from other sources, I can't be bothered not to steal from them.

idk if its the translation or what but it doesn't really sound like him to me. *shrug*
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on May 19th, 2009 02:16 am (UTC)
he his very open. hm



I have some bad news... and i dont want to jump the gun... but it certainly seems that despite the stuido efforts 17 Again couldn't break the top10 this weekend in Japan.

:(

Intl box office is usually calculated weekly... so I hope it grows in the week and at least makes the 10 before press releases go out.



butterflybee260butterflybee260 on May 19th, 2009 02:17 am (UTC)

wow really?! That's surprising, they love him.
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on May 19th, 2009 02:20 am (UTC)
I know. It almost seems impossible, like there is an error somewhere... how could a new movie not make the top 10?

The Japanese fans are shocked too.

It did open the same day as Angels&Demons... but even then.. there is at least 9 movies between them. *shrug*
butterflybee260butterflybee260 on May 19th, 2009 02:23 am (UTC)

It really just doesn't sound right. So odd.

I mean, not "what" like I don't understand but just... really?

they didn't show it on that many screens, so it isn't that surprising to me. see my other response for more deets.
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on May 19th, 2009 02:32 am (UTC)
What's the number you have?

Screen Daily reported $490K on 119 screens which isn't that great of a number on its own but seems like a pretty good pta ~$4100 (just a bit less than Hairspray's pta $4600).

That's a better pta than Twilight, Marley and Me, and a whole host of other US movies... so I'm not disappointed. They should have shown it on more screens, lol.

It still seems like it should be enough to get it in at #9 or #10. Though what else opened there this week, other than Angels and Demons?
Troll St. Trollglamour_addict on May 19th, 2009 03:03 am (UTC)
Japan doesnt go by money made (at least not at this stage) its just a numerical list for the most part

Actually 9 new movies came out this week, including Aerican films: "Angels & Demons", "W" and the Hannah Montana 3D concert.

Only 2 of the 9 made the top 10; Angels and Demons and a Japanese film called 60 year old Love Letters".




The only monetary news I have is,
Angels & Demons: 722 screens, the two-day weekend total 547,448,500 yen, (approx $5,674,217)

the total including Friday's opening attracting 530,394 people, grossed 681,782,300 yen (appprox: $7,066,566).

sorry it took so long, i had a hard time getting the numbers right. they use characters for amounts of money that im not familiar with.

Part 1

I saw it a bit earlier but only got around commenting now. First off, the translation is fine.

Second, I'll bet my ass and a lot of money that this interview never happened this way. I can't make my mind up if an interview happened (just like all those other 5-10 minute interviews he's been doing that day) and they "just" added and/or embellished quotes or if it is one of those articles which is pieced together from old material and current quotes from the press conference (I tend to believe the former but can see both scenarios). Because it's clear to me that this interview contains some answers which have been embellished from his article in Interview magazine, some quotes from the German press conference and some which are clearly made up.

Aside from the fact that he would never ever answer the questions about Vanessa the way they were written, there are so many inconsistencies throughout the entire interview which make no sense. Also, Zac is very predictable in his interview answers (including giving the same examples) unless it's a big interview like he has done for Interview, GQ or EW - and that's because he's spending several hours with the interviewer and not just a couple minutes. In those interviews he's typically going into a bit more detail but in short interviews in press calls etc he's never volunteering much personal information even on questions. So, let's look at some of the questions with the most obvious stuff....

VANITYFAIR.DE:
You could say, that you have more publicity than your college friends though. What's it like being a Hollywood poster boy?

Zac Efron:
Of course I’m really happy that so many people seem to like me. But I’m far from big-headed about it all. My family makes sure of that. At home I’m definitely not treated like a film star, but my Mom will be like: „Zac, take the rubbish out quickly, will you?“ Yeah, I mean, it’s true that I can’t go out as spontaneously as I used to. Even going for pizza is something I need to plan. But that’s okay. What I don’t understand is why there are always 10 paparazzi crowded around me und snapping pictures like crazy when I’m just buying a few magazines at a kiosk.

This is the first answer which I expect they edited. We've heard him talk about the paps hundreds of times and this answer is inline with the overall message he typically gives but the last sentense is not Zac. I can't see him giving an example of buying magazines if only because he never got caught by paps doing so. It's a minor edit but I think this is an obvious case of the magazine changing his answer sightly.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
How does your family handle your success?

Zac Efron:
They’re really laid back about it. Although…my Mom said the other day, „we’ve created a monster!“ But she was just kidding.

This is one of the answers which convinces me that the interview is fake/embellished because that answer comes straight out of the press conference or a syndicated article. I've read the exact same answer in at least one other article (which was from a small daily local newspaper - they wouldn't have sent a reporter for the press call) and I've not even following all the German press, so I'm sure it's out there more often.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Have you also fallen in love with a woman almost twice your age, like your character in the film?

Zac Efron:
No, not like with my friends’ moms, but yeah, at High School there might have been the odd crush. I still remember our biology teacher. She was something…

Same as the comment above. This comes from a press conference/syndicated article. The full answer is actually funnier (plus, the first part doesn't fit their question because the actual question was slightly different.

Beejeezbee on May 19th, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
Part 2

VANITYFAIR.DE:
When did you kiss a girl properly for the first time?

Zac Efron:
You mean, when was my first kiss with ulterior motives? That was at High School, when I was 17, if I remember correctly. My first proper kiss was really romantic. We were in a tree house and had lit candles and laid them out everywhere. And as it went dark out we were kissing passionately. But that was all…

</blockquote>

It is way too much of a coincidence that his first kiss in 6th grade which he has talked about several times (and we know he actually said) was described the same say (in a tree house etc) but was according to him in 6th grade and on a dare. Also, I just can't see Zac volunteerily talking about his first "real kiss" when he could have gotten away with the simple standard answer.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
In the film „17 again“ teenage abstinence is propogated. Is that something you believe in?

Zac Efron:
I’d rather not say anything about that, because whatever I say, I'd manage to offend somebody.

He answered that question in a different German interview already - but differently. He said, "This is my character talking, not me." - so he had no problem answering it before.

Vanityfair: You’ve been with your costar Vanessa Hudgens for a while now. One of the nice things about you two is that you don’t hide your love from your fans.

Why should I? That’d just make me look like a liar or hypocrite. Never mind the fact that it’s just something really wonderful that all the world and his brother can bear witness to our love. We just don’t have anything to hide.

VanityFair: Do you read what’s written about you and Vanessa in the internet then?

No, most of it is just nonsense anyway. Vanessa and I are happy together. That’s all that counts. Vanessa is a totally amazing person with a big heart. When you’re in a relationship, appearances and what’s happening on the outside aren’t important: it’s about whether you fit together deep down inside. I’ve already had a couple of relationships where it became obvious after a while that we just didn’t have anything to say to each other.

There is just no way in hell, he would have anwered these questions that way. Aside from the fact that I cannot see him answering the questions at all and certainly not with this openess and details, we know from several German articles/interviews that a press person is always in the room and interupts when things get personal. Even if he had answered the first question somehow, the interviewer would never have had the chance to get to the second personal questions.

Also, think about this. The question before he said his first real kiss was with 17. Now he said that he had a couple relationships before Vanessa but we also know that they got together when he was still 17 (barely but from what I know he was a few weeks shy of 18). Tell me how that timeline should work...

VANITYFAIR.DE:
What do you do when you’re lovesick?

Zac Efron:
I just get on my skateboard and off I go. I used to skate around my apartment but I’ve just got myself a new house with a few pieces of really cool but expensive furniture so I’m sort of passing on indoor-skating for now.

This sounds like info from Interview magazine - twisted to make up an answer for their fake question.

Beejeezbee on May 19th, 2009 03:17 am (UTC)
Part 3

VANITYFAIR.DE:
Is everything always sunshine and roses for you? Or is there anything that you regret?

Zac Efron:
Right now I feel completey happy. What do I regret? There is something: when I was in Rio de Janeiro recently for a media appointment, I couldn’t go to the amazing Copacabana beach because of the paparazzi. That was a real shame. But next time I’m in Rio, I definitely am not going to miss out.

Again, why on earth would Zac voluneteer information which opens up the possiblity for the interviewer to ask about his relationship (since he was in Brazil with Vanessa). He never does that. Plus, he wasn't there for a press appointment as the answer said. This also sounds like info from the Interview magazine article used differently.

VANITYFAIR.DE:
And what are you going to do after this interview?

Zac Efron:
I’m going to go back to my hotel room and send Vanessa a text. It’s still way too early to ring LA.

And again, why would he volunteer info about Vanessa when he wasn't even asked about her? Plus, if VanityFair had an interview, the only answer to that question would have been, "The next interview" because we all know that during press days he's doing one interview after the other.

There are a few answers which sound ok (like Zac could have answered them) but they could also have come from the press conference or other material because we've heard them all several times before.

If you ask me if I can believe that VanityFair would make up parts of an article/anwers or at least embellish them, my answer is ABSOLUTELY. I can't proof it though. And I'm sure that many people will believe it because they want to believe it. I would be a lot that this interview never happened that way - there are just too many discrepances and coincidences.

Angels & Demons:
