This Twilight hottie opens up about girls, being a rebel and the role he’s dying to play!
1. When was your first kiss?
When I was 13, I was dating a girl two years older than me. We were in a movie theater and got about thirty minutes into the movie (Titanic) and she made the first move. I was very shy and probably wouldn’t have ever made the first move, so, well, it rocked my world. We dated on and off for two years. I heard she recently got married, so I won’t say her name, but she still holds a special place in my heart.
2. Who’s your celebrity crush?
Bryce Dallas Howard. I think she’s an incredible actress and such a beautiful young woman. I also think she’s way out of my league, so I’ll just keep dreaming.
3. What’s a girl fashion trend that confuses you?
In LA summer’s blistering heat, I’ve seen many girls wearing short skirts with Ugg boots. I like the boots, and the short skirts, but I’ve always wondered, don’t their feet get hot?
4. What’s the chick flick you secretly love?
The Notebook. It’s incredibly well acted and written, but it’s definitely a chick flick.
5. What’s your TV guilty pleasure?
“Blind Date” – I like the pop-up commentary, but it’s an awful show.
6. Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
If there ever is a movie version, I’d demand it to be a cartoon. Then, perhaps Christopher Walken could play me? I doubt he’d want to…
7. What’s your dream job?
Acting in a Clint Eastwood picture. PLEASE, Mr. Eastwood, I will play ANY PART, even a pizza boy with no lines!
8. If you could trade places with anyone in the world for one day, who would it be?
Andy Warhol. I’ve always wanted to have a “Factory” of my own. I’m working on it at the moment… I think I’m three years away.
9. Who in your family are you closest to?
We are a complete family unit. I couldn’t function without any of them. Our family dinners are the most amazing experiences: no one gets to finish a sentence, everyone laughs food through his/her nose at some point, and the food is DELICIOUS and ABUNDANT. Leftovers rock!
10. What’s your favorite Website?
Snopes.com – I love learning new things that will never be put to practical use.
11. What’s the fast food you can’t live without?
Peppers and pepperoni pizza. (I like the alliteration.)
12. What’s your worst habit?
13. What’s the last song you listened to on your iPod?
“That Wouldn’t Be Right” by The Stevedores – There’s a break in the song that’s rips my heart out in the best way. “These eyes behold a lot of what these hands cannot…” Beautiful soul, that Spencer Bell.
14. What’s the last thing you bought?
I bought a little travel electric-guitar. It’s two feet long and has a built-in amp. I’ve been traveling so much lately, it became necessary.
15. What did you dream about last night?
I wish I could remember. I also wish I could lucid dream. Alas.
16. How much money is in your wallet right now?
I don’t carry a wallet. I keep my cards in my pocket and cash in my boots. Why? You need to borrow some? It might smell like feet…
17. Fill in the blank: When I was 17, I was ____________.
A Lost Boy. There was a group of six of us actors at Interlochen Arts Academy named “Lost Boys” by the school administration for causing dissent against authority. Perhaps we truly were rebels without a cause. When I turned 18, I got my first and only tattoo, “I’m lost…” There were six of us Lost Boys, but now we are down to five. Adrenal cancer took the life of our dear friend and compatriot Spencer Bell. Please take a moment to visit spencerbellmemorial.com to listen to some of his music. They’ve just released his posthumous solo album, “Feudal, Brutal, and the American Dream” which can’t be found anywhere else. Enjoy!
