Best Way to Spend a Day Off
Catching up on Japanese anime. As a kid, I read comics and watched Dragon Ball Z, so I got really into that style of animation. Now when I have time, I binge-watch cartoons from overseas. When I'm finished, I feel like I fell down a rabbit hole.
Best Wardrobe Staple
A leather bomber jacket. I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, and now that I live in Los Angeles, I miss the change of seasons and wearing layers.
Best Summer Activity
Hopping in my car and going for a long drive on the highway. Especially if it's the kind of hot summer night when the only way to cool off is to roll down the windows, feel the wind and coast. Especially in my BMW—I love my ride!
Skydiving in Dubai. I'm afraid of heights, so when I visited the city for a film festival, I took a little detour to get over my fear—a few thousand feet in the air. It was an incredibly exhilarating experience.
A restaurant chain called Mastro's makes a warm butter cake. It's basically just butter and cream cheese, with a scoop of ice cream on top. I want it, I need it. It is everything.
Best Football Team
The New York Giants. Where I grew up, you picked either the Jets or the Giants. My family will always be a Giants family all the way.
