Maritza Vives & Gabriela Giusti


Maritza’s responses to Gabriela’s questions:

Where do you want to be in 5 years as an actress?

I want to play Jack Sparrow's wife. She is a crazy Hispanic pirate. I have the role well thought out and defined, especially the way she walks, the costumes and the expressions on her face. If they haven't created the character by 2025 yet, I'm going to call the producers of the film and propose it myself.

40 years, is the new 40 for you?

The only real and personal parameter that I have to compare my 40 years with the 40 of before, let's say those of 20 to 25 years ago, is my mother's 40. She suffered from depression all her life, that is, she was not a typical 40-year-old woman of her time; so since I do not have a real comparison sample, I answer you from the experience of my 40s. They are the best! A mixture of youth, strength, experience and wisdom. On the other hand, many times I have felt and feel ageless, sometimes a 13 or 17-year-old teenager and sometimes a 98-year-old woman.

If you could use a time machine, where would you go and who would you like to meet?

I would go to the past. I would like to meet great artists who had a very bad time in life and who were recognized after their death. For example, I would love to animate Van Gogh and tell him what will happen to his works!

What is your favorite swear word?

I do not have, I try not to say them because they make me violent and in a bad mood.

What are the sounds that inspire you the most?

Rock & roll from the 70s and silence.

What are the sounds you hate the most?

The volume of people in public places who speak very loudly.

Gabriela’s responses to Maritza’s questions:

What other profession would you have if you weren't an actress?

A Butler. I love ordering and giving orders. I also imagine myself a writer although I prefer to always be with people.

What do you hate the most and what do you love the most?

I detest all forms of oppression, the abuse of power in any field. That is why I detest some institutions. And what I love the most is something like what expands in the body when I feel love for someone, with my children is very common. In acting many times I feel the same.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

A monkey but with long hair, elegant and friendly.

How do you define your humor? What makes you laugh?

The failed make me laugh, the ridiculous, something on the brink, the people who are on the brink and you don't know if you laugh out of nerves or why.

If you could choose which era to live in, what would it be?

I would like to live in 52 years so they celebrate my 100th birthday with a futuristic party in some bubble hanging out there in space. I imagine being able to go to spend seasons in big bubbles with their own climate and their own ideologies. I would choose an anarchist.

If you were an object, what would you be?

A cane or a comfortable chair or the frame of a painting.
