Interview with Italian American Actress and Model Robin Arcuri
Part 3 of 3 - The Real Robin
Continued from part 2
Interviewed by Anthony Parente
How did you come across the nickname RA?
RA = Robin Arcuri. Those are my initials. My friends always say that I worship the sun, so some of them began calling me RA or RA RA for kicks. RA is also the name of my business RA Enterprises and the name of my couture jewelry and clothing lines that are currently in Production. The other reason was because people, primarily Californians, have a difficult time properly pronouncing Arcuri. Just check www.wireimage.com and you'll see all the variations of my last name. *laughs*
What is your favorite movie?
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
What is your favorite Italian movie?
Who is your favorite artist/band?
The question should be more like, what are your favorite songs?! There's so many talented bands. I love Elton John, The Boss, Foo Fighters, Enya, FRAY, Ennio Morricone, Goo Goo Dolls, & Dj's like Tiesto. I also love classical though because it's so soothing. Andrea Boccelli is one of my favorites. Now how's that for diversity?
What is your favorite Italian food?
I love ALL Italian food but I try to avoid meat in anything. We celebrated my last birthday with a batch of 20 fresh Italian made cannolis.
Do you have time for hobbies or interests?
For the past three years I have devoted my "hobby time" to charity and humanitarian work. I rescue animals quite often, fostering them until they get adopted. This year I began fencing at Orange Coast Fencing Academy in Orange County California, and I love it, so that is my newest hobby. I've always surfed and I am doing more of that this coming summer.
What thing do you enjoy doing the most in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy surfing, cooking, gardening, and spending time with family & friends.
