Here’s a fine slice of nostalgia! I found this on Tumblr — it’s an incredible, personal and very long interview from Mr. Nimoy in 1966, where he answers 40 questions from a movie magazine. Love the opening shot if Nimoy talking into a state-of-the-art tape recorder (not so thrilled with the cigarette shot, but everyone smoked in the 60’s) Great insight into the 35 year old Nimoy’s mind! I wonder how much holds true today?

It’s very interesting to see some thoughts from him that were written well before the first autobiography. Thanks for posting this!
I know this is very naughty, slapped wrist etc – but I have always thought that shots of him smoking are dead sexy!
I completely understand… 🙂 I mean, look at those lips!
Awesome, thanks for posting!
Hello! I very much enjoyed this article!!
But I do have a question.. In the interview here Leonard states that his favorite foods are steak and home made blueberry pie with ice cream.
I have always heard that Mr. Nimoy is a vegetarian. What are you’re thoughts on this??!
Thank you!! ShellyCrawford
I don’t know his eating habits, but if he is Vegetarian, this may have been before he switched!
When he went to China for Marco Polo he said he had bacon for breakfast. Not veggie and not kosher either! If he is veggie it’s very recent.
You guys are more on top of this than I am! Food tastes change all through life, I’d be happy to let red meat go, but it’s hard! (I only buy Organic meats)
I’ve been veggie since 1976, no meat or fish. I’m too sentimental!
Rock on! And I bet your body thanks you for it!
