For the last few months, I’ve asked every celeb I’ve interviewed to give me their thoughts on Halloween. Here’s what I got:
I can’t wait for a Halloween episode! I don’t know what I’m going to be as corny as it sounds, I’m between vampire and witch. Maybe I’ll go vampire because I was a witch for four Halloweens in a row. My mom raised me and we weren’t that rich so we had to recycle the costumes. So maybe a vampire. Or I might just be a big carrot, I don’t know.
Trauma and Friday Night Lights
“When I was a kid I would try to be every horror film slasher, Freddy Krueger, Jason, Mike Meyers, that was my thing. I grew up loving the whole blood, Fangora — all that stuff. I was a huge Halloween guy. And this year, what am I gonna go as… every once in a while, my girlfriend and I will sit there and we’ll see something on TV and she’ll say, I know what you’re gonna be for Halloween, I swear, once a week something happens… you know somebody’s on TV… maybe Rod Blagojevich, that’s what I’ll be this year! Or maybe Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco, that’s who I’ll be this year.

Oh my goodness, it’s always a fun party. It’s one of those things where I will probably dressup until I die. It’s one of the times a year where adults can be kids again or at least be young at heart. I have always been one to dress up. In Junior High I was a 75 year old woman. I wore my grandma’s moo moo and I wore her support hose and a wig and a cane and when I walked into school people thought I was an old woman. No one looked twice at me. When I revealed it was me, my friends were totally freaked out.
Last year, I was Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, I tried to be a sexy pirate. I did win 100 dollars , first prize at a nightclub in the costume contest. I looked pretty sexy. My manager was like, lusting after this picture. I’m like Sharon, that’s a little creepy. Don’t let me fool you. I look pretty good.
Last year I was a mime! Which is, you know, pretty ordinary, but my mime costume was fifteen years old, it belonged to a buddy of mine who’d written a one man show and put it up. And he’s petite so we wear the same size clothing. It’s amazing, the unitard of a thirty-year-old fits me, but it does. So painted myself up in white face, and sewed a little pink heart onto my unitard and went to a party and didn’t speak for… about twenty minutes.
Do you have a Halloween costume or memory you’d like to share? Let’s see it in the comments below.
