What You Might Ask a Celebrity

I am a pop culture fanatic that loves writing about celebrities.

Any Questions?

If you had the chance to interview a celebrity, what would you ask? The truth is that celebrities get asked such a gauntlet of questions every time they have a new project to promote that their answers can get somewhat routine. The trick is to think of questions that will show a glimpse of their personality that rarely has a chance to come through. Here are 30 interview questions to help get you started.
