Do you like to read books or magazines?
Both. I love to read magazines. My favorite one is The Financial Times’ magazine
How to Spend It. I normally read in English and Spanish. I just finished Isabel Allende’s The Japanese Lover. Also in English, I just finished Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult.
If you could have dinner with a Sesame Street character, who would it be and what would you talk about?
We would talk about food. And we would talk about joy of life. And I think it would be Cookie. He’s going to eat everything, of course. At the end of the day, you never would think this: He loves his cookies, but he shares them. It’s, like, I love my bags and shoes, but I don’t know if I would share them.
If you could have a beer with someone, dead or alive, who would it be?
I don’t drink beer. So I would love to share a glass of wine with Coco Chanel. I think one of the things that I really, really admire about her is that she’s timeless and she was a rebel.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
A lot of people think I’m an extrovert. I love parties and I love to talk. But I’m very shy. I love to cook and now I’m a yoga teacher.
Did you grow up on Sesame Street?
I grew up on Plaza Sesamo because I grew up in Mexico—with characters Abelardo, Pancho and Lola.
