Iconic writer Gay Talese has profiled a lot of people in his long career, but there’s one he’d really like to sit down with right about now: Kevin Spacey.

Ugh.

More:

Gesturing to the roomful of media titans sipping Champagne around him, he added, “You know something, all of us in this room at one time or another did something we’re ashamed of. The Dalai Lama has done something he’s ashamed of. The Dalai Lama should confess . . . put that in your magazine!”

Does Gay Talese have something he’d like to share with the class?

Good Lord.

Evidently, it’s already in there. Just keeping his mouth shut would be much better.

Exit evergreen question:
