The star of such iconic films as Jurassic Park, Independence Day and The Fly has been winning fans and inspiring crushes for decades. There's just something about Goldblum, and he shared a bevvy of his signature quirk and charm during a recent AMA, answering questions about his likes and dislikes, his pop culture influence, and aspirations for cross-species evolution. Because of course.
Check out some highlights from his Reddit AMA below.
He knows you're obsessed with him. He's seen and "heartily" approves of the slowed down Apple ad that makes him seem drunk. He knows you love that Jurassic Park laugh, which was spontaneous magic on his part. And yes, he's seen the fan painting of Ian Malcolm. He'd be honored if you hang it over your fireplace.
If he were a dolphin, you'd call him Surf Goldblum. Inspired by The Fly, one fan asked what creature Goldblum would splice his DNA with if he could. He said, "Let's see. Off the top of my head, I'd splice myself with a dolphin, and my name would be Surf Goldblum." The best response to this reveal came from Placenta_Claus, who paraphrased Ian Malcom, "Life...uh...finds a wave."
He'd like to work with Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers. Let's will both of these things into existence.
Earth Girls Are Easy was a sultry shoot. And not because he co-starred with then-wife Geena Davis! Goldblum donned a bodysuit covered in blue hair for portions of the movie and described that experience as "Hot. I mean, sweaty. But, um, provocative."
His advice to you: Do what you love. Don't be The Wolf of Wall Street. Trying to recap the best advice he'd ever been given, Goldblum offered:
"Gee. The best advice ever given...to me... Let's see. Oh boy. This is a good one. The best advice ever given to me is fill your days with what you love doing. Also, you know, contribute as substantially as you can to the community, and, uh, something the opposite of what the character does in Wolf of Wall Street. Do something worthwhile and substantial, not with any sales technique or baloney on top of it, and give as much as you can. The opposite of The Wolf of Wall Street, but I don't know how to put that into a pithy piece of advice. And also, put down your device, whatever it is, when you cross the street. Stop, look, and listen. Both equally important."
