SS/JC: With so many classic films being redone, is there a remake you'd like to star in?

CG: Well, I smile a lot more on the red carpet.

SS/JC: If you could have a superpower, which one would you choose?

CG: I would fly. I’ve been dreaming about flying since I was 5 years-old.

SS/JC: If you had to choose another profession, what would that be?

CG: Social work. Or maybe coaching kids sports. I’ve always been a people person. It would have to be something where I could help people.

SS/JC: What is your favorite charity?

CG: The Boys and Girls Clubs of America is one of them. I have a few.

SS/JC: Can you give me a Cuba Gooding, Jr. question to ask other celebrities?

CG: Yeah, what still scares you?
