I refuse to face facts.
4. What makes you happy?

Buy some remote tropical beachfront land with a hot springs with my best friend and co-inventor, Daryl Hannah.

My exact replica of the Wizard of Oz's ruby slippers that actually fit me!
9. Who is your role model?
My grandmother Sally, who was one of the first women in NYC to get her drivers license...she ran her own company and traveled the world. She had incredible style and could make anything but dinner!
10. What is your greatest achievement?
Definitely my two daughters—they amaze me every day.
11. How did you come up with the idea for LIEbrary?
We would have game nights with our friends and this was an old parlor game where we would grab a book off a shelf and play. One Christmas, we were on vacation and couldn't play because there were no books so we took the concept and turned it into a board game out of necessity! We developed it over the years by testing it on our friends. We knew we had a hit because it became the only game everyone wanted to play on game nights.
12. What contributions to society do you want to make?
I love working with kids. Before I had my own I did volunteer work at an orphanage and when I was the evil queen on The Power Rangers I worked with children's charities a lot.
13. If you could buy one thing right now what would it be?
A new hybrid Lexus SUV.
14. Favorite activity that doesn’t cost a dime?
Making stuff out of all the crap lying around the house. I just made a charm necklace from old pieces of my mom's costume jewelry!
15. How do you indulge yourself?
Beverly Hot Springs downtown. Real live underground hot springs in LA. Then they scrub the dead skin off you and massage you with milk and honey! Heavenly!
