Hilary Clinton, you can’t beat that smile. Seriously… Natalie Portman because she’s pretty weird and sexy.
What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done?
When I was 13 I made up a secret code language which used numbers instead of letters. I wrote a girl a love letter and sent her the secret code. Although, it must have got lost in the mail because I never got a reply.

To skydive without an instructor.
