–Excerpt from LA Times Magazine interview of Jeremy Irons:
You’re known for having one of the greatest voices in the world. What is your favorite word to say?
Crepuscular. The crepuscular hour is when the sun dips. In movie terms, you call it the magic hour. I also like excellent. Excellent is a word I use because it’s very encouraging, and I learned long ago that when anybody came up with an idea I would say, “Excellent.”
But what if the person’s idea is actually horrible?
Well, you just don’t do it.
