(Oct 3rd: Okay this post has been edited slightly but the meat of it is still the same)
Q: What's the most ridiculous rumor you've seen about yourself since you got famous?
MISHA: That i am on tumblr. I am not on tumblr. I can barely spell tumblr. However, there does seem to be someone on tumblr (who copied my reddit user name) who is apparently trying to impersonate me. I like the idea that people are pretending to be me. I spend most of my time pretending not to be me.
Q: Fuck, Marry, Kill: Mark Sheppard, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki. Also, How do you get your hair so sextastic? Could you confirm that charity scavenger hunts directly correlate to the sexiness of a persons hair? Have a fantastic day Mister Misha :)
MISHA: Fuck: MS (because i think he'd come up with some pretty good heat-of-the-moment pet names for me) Marry JA, because he's good in the kitchen and kill JP, because it would be incredibly satisfying to say i took down a guy 4 inches taller than me.
Q: Thanks for doing an AMA Misha! Which do you believe is more demanding: being a director for an episode of Supernatural or being a father? Also, if Jensen Ackles is ever given the role of Batman, would you be his Robin?
MISHA: First of all, being a father is like directing Alien or Invasion of the Body Snatchers. It's much more difficult than directing an episode of TV. Also, directing a show or movie lasts a few months at most, parenting lasts for decades. Secondly, i am insulted by your suggestion of me playing robin to Ackles Batman. I would be the butler.
Q: What is the greatest and most moving experience you have had with a fan? In relation to the question, I'd like to quickly say that when I met you at asylum 12, you offered me a lot of support about being a member of the LGBT+, and it was extremely moving and has got me through some tough times since as I am now in a position where coming out would be dangerous. So it got me thinking that you must have touched the lives of so many people, and I was wondering if anyone has touched yours in return.
MISHA: I have had many very moving experiences with fans. A large group of fans (and a few non-fans) went with me several times to Haiti to help raise money for and build a school/orphanage (among other things), that was something of a life-changing experience for me. I have also had many interactions with fans telling me that somehow my character on Supernatural, or the show itself, or my snarky online persona, had had a profound impact on them. I've received letters and heard stories that have made me tear up. There are a lot of people out there with incredibly difficult lives and when they share their stories, it can be very profound. I'm glad you have managed to come out and (it sounds like) move through a difficult phase in your life.
Q: Any chance of another Cooking with West episode? :D
MISHA: Yes. i plan to continue shooting episodes of cooking fast and fresh with west until West (my son) refuses to do them with me. Even after he starts refusing, i might drug him and shoot the episodes anyway.-
Q: Welcome to reddit, I'm glad Shatner sent you our way! I've been doing your scavenger hunts since the very first one, with the Rhino puzzle piece in the plastic lined envelope. Is there any item you were going to put on a hunt list and had to take off because it was too dangerous/illegal/actually impossible?
MISHA: Yes. there have been several items we have removed from the list because they were too dangerous, perverted or illegal. The second year i did a hunt, i had someone standing on the peak of a roof wrapped in lit christmas tree lights. When the first person submitted a photo of this item, i immediately realized how stupid this was and removed the item. In spite of my best efforts, people still get arrested occasionally participating in GISHWHES
Q: Out of hundreds of iconic moments in SN, probably the most stunning and impactful scene in SNs long history was your introduction and when those black wings spread behind you. When did you realize this was going to be much bigger for you than initially anticipated?
MISHA: Every year, supernatural has a little premiere party for the broadcast of the first episode of the season. My character started in the first episode of the fourth season and i went to the party for it. At the time i thought i was only doing three episodes and i didn't really know anything about the show. When the scene you are talking about came on the screen, Sera Gamble, one of the writers/producers on the show leaned over to me and whispered, "your life is about to change." I thought to myself, "Man, this woman has a really overblown sense of this show. This is just another guest starring arc on some silly show." I was wrong. Sera was right.
Q: What does Misha Collins smell like?
MISHA: Fermented cod liver with a hint of peppermint.
Q: Hello, Misha! How was having Jensen directing your scenes?
MISHA: Terrible. Humiliating.
Q: I’ve read Vicki’s book on threesomes and I enjoyed it immensely, although I have yet to put anything into practice.
MISHA: I'm glad you enjoyed my wife's pornography. I have considered writing a book. However, a friend of mine, Matt Thomas, just wrote a novel that was so extraordinary that i have lost heart. I will never write anything that good. His book is called "We are not Ourselves." If you read it you will see what i mean. If i write a book it will probably be a book about how not to use the internet or a book of poetry.
Q: Have you ever actually gotten sick because of something West has made?
MISHA: i nearly puked when he made pasta with jam sauce. I smiled for the camera, because that's what i'm trained to do, but i almost puked.
