These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Adam Scott has been cracking us up for years on the small and big screens. These days, you can catch him every Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on NBC alongside
Leslie Knope Amy Poehler on "Parks and Recreation" and, starting today, in theaters in the dramatic comedy "A.C.O.D." (Adult Children of Divorce). Scott stopped by HuffPost Live to take our #nofilter challenge and, unsurprisingly, made us laugh more than once.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
That's a good question ... I don't know, I kind of don't feel guilty about any of my pleasures. Guilt-free pleasures.
If you could commit a crime and get away with it, what would it be?
Oh boy. I would probably... [thinks long and hard] Murder.
Who would you murder?
I would go back in time and murder the guy that invented Post-Its and then I would invent them.
What’s the working title of your autobiography?
Hey! What Do YOU Think Is Going On?!? The Adam Scott Story (I Love Acting). That's the whole title. Because I'm asking a question: What do you think is going on? Forget about me, what's going on with you? And then they're like "I don't know" and they open the book and they find out what's going on with me.
What happens in your recurring dream?
It is interesting. I have a recurring dream where I'm on the run for a horrible thing I did years and years ago. Like, in the dream ... because the thing I did was so long ago that it's just a faint memory in my dream, so I'm sort of remembering it as I'm on the run from the police. And I'm totally guilty of it ... It's very "Inception," it's very embedded, because it feels like a real memory in the dream. It's really weird.
What sense would you most be afraid to lose?
None of them would be great, you kind of want them all ... Sight. I think [hearing and sight] would both be tough but I think sight might be more important ... I don't want to get any letters from hearers out there, but I guess I value my sight a little more.
