Parade.com/win of Dancing With the Stars (nominated for Favorite Competition TV Show), who had surgery to remove a cancerous nodule in her thyroid just eight days after her program’s finale, is happy to report she has now received a clean bill of health. “The thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and all my lymph nodes are clear,” the mother of four, 41, wrote on her blog.

A: The Big Bang

WALTER SCOTT ASKS…

JASON ALDEAN The country star, 35, pulls double duty as a nominee (Favorite Country Artist) and performer at the People’s Choice Awards. Q: What’s in store for your performance? I’m not used to playing a lot of black-tie events, but I’m going to get onstage and have fun and bring a country-rock flair to the show. It’s my first time being nominated, and anything that comes from the fans is extra special. Q: After a difficult year personally [the married singer admitted that he “acted inappropriately” p p y with another woman in a bar],

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in 21 Jump Street

what has the support of your fans meant to you? I want them to stick with me when things are going great and when they’re not going so great. The fact that they’ve done ne that is a testament to how amazing country music fans are. That makes me proud. Q: If you weren’t singing, what would you be doing? I’d like to think I’d be playing baseball. I had an opportunity to play baseball in college, but I just didn’t want to go to school. I started focusing on my music and it was game over! Q: Who would be on your ballot for Favorite Country Artist? Luke Bryan is one of my closest friends, and I don’t think anybody has had a bigger year. I’m also a big fan of Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood. A lot of us hit the scene at the same time, so it’s cool to see your friends doing well.

Q: Are Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill friends in real life, as their characters were in 21 Jump Street? —Bradley Poterfield, Eagan, Minn.

A: “Channing and I are from very different places, but I’ve rarely gotten along with someone as well as this guy,” says Hill, 29. “We hang out all the time.” The duo

Theory star, who is up for Favorite Comedic TV Actress, says that though winning an award is very important impo to her, she’s more focused on her emcee duties, which she perfected at last year’s show. “I’m thrilled to be hosting again,” Cuoco, 27, says. “When they called to ask me back, I thought they had the wrong number! I’m superflattered and looking forward to a great show.”

Q: How is Brooke BurkeCharvet doing since her thyroid cancer diagnosis? —Brian Johnson, Jacksonville, Fla.

A: The cohost

Q: Who has won the most People’s Choice Awards? —Nicole H., Pittsburgh

A: From his first award in 1985 for Favorite Male Performer in a New TV Program to his last award in 1999 for All Time Favorite TV Star, actor and comedian Bill Cosby holds the record with 17 wins. Coming in second is Julia Roberts with 13 statuettes, although she’ll have to share the spot with Ellen DeGeneres if the funny lady wins again this year in the category of Favorite Daytime TV Host.

ABBEY FAB

ver the last two rather extraordinary years, at the risk of sounding vain, I have often been asked why I thought Downton Abbey has been quite such a success. Of course, it is hard to be definite about these things. If television were an exact science, there would be nothing made that did not break records. But supposing I were to put my finger on one element, it might be that we have made the decision to treat every character, the members of the family and the members of their staff, equally, in terms of their narrative strength. They all have emotional lives, dreams, ambitions, and disappointments, and with all of them we suggest backstories, many of which are to be found in my own history. Few people shake off the family influences they were born into, and I am not among them. My relations, when I was young, were numerous and omnipresent and, inevitably I suppose, they seem now to abandon their graves and settle into the pages of my scripts with increasing regularity. I have spoken before of my impressive, if tyrannical, great-aunt Isie, who is the principal model for Violet Grantham (and also for Lady Trentham in Gosford Park before that), a woman whose dry wit concealed a good deal of personal suffering and who was no tougher on the rest of us than she was on herself. It is perhaps that draconian sense of personal discipline that makes her breed seem admirable to me. But my family has contributed the outline sketches for more than the Dowager. Robert Grantham is definitely drawn, in his personality if not his circumstance, from my

dear departed father. In this, I mean to convey that he was a deeply moral man, cleverer possibly than Robert, and, like Robert, he was always determined to do right, but without ever contesting the structure of his own social universe. One of my brothers remarked that if Pa had crashed in the desert and somehow found a parking meter buried in the sand, he would be sure to put the correct money into it. This stuff dies hard in us, and not long ago, when For more I discovered I had taken photos, go to Parade.com change for a 20-pound /downton note instead of a tenner from the branch of Tesco in Trafalgar Square, I journeyed across London the following day to pay back the excess. Rather sadly, the amiable manageress clearly thought I was mad. I have been accused in the press of being

too concerned with class, and thereby a snob. There is some truth to the first, since I am fascinated by the shaping effect of the random selection of class, and how, even today, it has a lasting influence on our aspirations and prospects. A recent report for the Labour Government concluded that birth remained the greatest determinant when it came to our futures in modern Britain. This seems extraordinary to me, partly because I grew up in the 1960s, a generation that assumed all such stuff was coming to an end, and if you had asked anyone in 1968 how important class would be in 40 years’ time, they would have laughed in your face. But perhaps I have a greater sensibility because, to a degree, I was brought up in a class minefield. My father’s birth was grander than my mother’s, his relations therefore disapproving of both her family and her, and she was condemned to the unenviable task of making everything in their life seem smooth and seamless when it was in fact riven with stitching.

HIGHS AND LOWS AT DOWNTON ABBEY

The ’20s are a new, brighter decade, but tradition still reigns at the mansion. Left, cast members on the stairs that separate the family’s domain from the staff’s. Center, Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens) and Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) on their long-awaited wedding day. “These two are always going to have quite a tempestuous time,” says series cocreator Gareth Neame. Below, prisoner John Bates (Brendan Coyle) reads letters from his beloved wife, Anna.

Q&A

The Oscar winner, 78, joins the cast to play wealthy Rhode Islander Martha Levinson.



What’s Mrs. Levinson like? She’s a force for change. She goes to see the other side of her family and talks about how they got into a world war because they were addicted to tradition. She tells them they really need to get up to speed on what’s happening in the world. Do you think there’s still a lot of class consciousness in England? My relationship with the English is they love my bawdiness, because I cuss in public. Maybe they like to get away from “appropriate” behavior. I do understand why they had the British class system. I don’t know which came first, that or the clothes—because you couldn’t get dressed without a servant. All the buttons! You have a great scene where you sing “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” to Maggie Smith at a party. That was my idea, and Julian [Fellowes] went for it. I thought it might be funny and charming—how would this character who doesn’t even know what a weekend is react to someone singing a love song to her? Was it hard joining Downton’s ensemble? No, they welcomed me in! They wanted to hear stories about the Rat Pack and Billy Wilder and Hitchcock. And they asked, “Would you sing ‘If My Friends Could See Me Now’ from Sweet Charity?” The thing that impressed me about the cast—besides their being wonderful actors—was we’d be out in the rain and wind, and they’d do everything as though there was no weather. And I thought, I’d better do that, too. —Kathy Heintzelman

Q&A

Dan Stevens

The 31-year-old native of Essex was nominated for an Emmy last year for her portrayal of Lady Mary Crawley, eldest daughter of Lord and Lady Grantham.

The actor, 30, hails from London and plays Matthew Crawley, heir to Downton Abbey. But will he exit in season four?

Mary has become the series’ heroine. What do you think of the fans’ reaction to her? I was told there is a Twitter account called Lady Mary’s Eyebrows, which is just bonkers! I tend to not take it all too seriously, but it’s incredibly flattering. I’m just very proud to be a part of something that’s captured people’s hearts. Has it been hard to play the on-again, off-again relationship with Matthew? Julian writes the episodes as we go, so we can’t play what’s coming, which is great as an actor. In the second season I was thinking, “Maybe she’ll have to marry Richard and be miserable; maybe that would be interesting to play.” The course of true love never did run smooth, and there are still issues that [Matthew and Mary] have to resolve. How was it working with Shirley MacLaine? Oh! She was brilliant! It was suddenly very quiet when she left, and we all missed her. Being in the same scenes as Maggie Smith and Shirley MacLaine is something I will never forget. —Mary Margaret

8 • JANUARY 6, 2013

What makes Matthew and Mary a good love match? Since the beginning, they’ve seemed like opposites; they’ve clashed and caused sparks. But opposites attract, and sparks make fire. Can they have a happy ending? One of the constant dramatic pressures on the characters is that personal happiness is often sacrificed for the sake of the house. Everyone is striving to see the estate continue; they see its survival as the key to happiness. What’s it like knowing that royals like Prince William and Duchess Kate are tuning in? What’s wonderful is that the show seems to appeal to a huge range of people. You’re currently starring on Broadway as well, in The Heiress. What do you enjoy about doing period dramas? Aside from the fun costumes and beautiful settings, it’s a chance to explore where we’ve come from and how much or how little we’ve changed. Would you like to comment on reports that you’ll be leaving the series in the fourth season? I could tell you, but then I’d have to have Mrs. Patmore cook you. … —K. H.

LOVERS AND OTHER STRANGERS

Above, Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael) pins her romantic hopes on the older, war-injured Sir Anthony Strallan (Robert Bathurst). The family does not approve. Left, youngest sister Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) and her even more inappropriate husband, chauffeur-turned-revolutionary Tom Branson (Allen Leech), are expecting and living in an increasingly volatile Ireland. from page 7

was a strong woman and in her youth a great beauty, which is a powerful social tool even if it carries a sell-by date, but it was never plain sailing, all the same. The gap today would not feel wide, she from the respectable middle class, he from what one of my brothers refers to rather caustically as the “landless gentry,” but in 1935, the year of their marriage, it was a chasm. The cool dismissals, the veiled snubs, the cold-shouldering of a friendly gesture—I have witnessed them all, both through the puzzled eyes of childhood, and with the more knowledgeable vision of later on. I suppose standing, as it were, on both sides of the divide has influenced my work, but, as anyone logical could tell, the accusation of snobbery is wide of the mark. It is precisely because I identify with both teams that my writing, if I am allowed to say so, aspires to a kind of social justice which, I believe anyway, is one of the reasons it has reached so wide an audience. But if my past gives the characters an edge and makes the world of Downton Abbey more real, then I am more than content. Certainly, it is pretty real to me, and I hope to you as well.

How often should you replace your Christmas tree lights? (a) Every year (b) Every three years (c) Every 10 years Answer: (b). “After about three years, Christmas lights wear out, which means they’re more likely to short and cause electrical fires,” says Nancy Harvey Steorts, author of Your Home Safe Home. Another smart rule: Never attach more than three strings of lights to an extension cord.

Which wintry forecast is the most dangerous to drive in? (a) 32 degrees, clear skies (b) 18 degrees, snow (c) 35 degrees, rain Answer: (c). Studies show that while 24 percent of all auto accidents are the result of adverse weather conditions, most occur on wet—not icy—pavement. The reason: Drivers are more likely to proceed slowly and carefully when ice and snow are on the ground, but they don’t take the same precautions during rain.

Your husband just came in from shoveling snow. He can’t stop shivering and his speech is slowed. What should you do? (a) Give him a hot beverage (like coffee) to warm him up (b) Start rubbing his arms and legs to increase circulation (c) Dress him in dry clothing and wrap him in a blanket Answer: (c). Caffeine can cause the heart to beat faster and hasten the effects of cold on the body. And stimulating the limbs before the trunk can drive cold blood toward the heart and lead to heart failure.

WHEN THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTFUL …

Freezing temps, slippery roads, holiday hazards—do you know how to keep your family safe and healthy this winter? By Colleen Oakley It’s better to wrap him up and immediately call for medical assistance.

Which accessory is most important to wear when out playing in the snow? (a) Earmuffs (b) Thick, woolly socks (c) Sunglasses Answer: (c). On sunny, wintry days, snow can reflect 80 percent of all UV rays (dry beach sand, by comparison, reflects only 15 percent). That intense exposure

can cause photokeratitis, or snow blindness, a temporary condition that creates extreme sensitivity to light and increases the risk of sunrelated eye disorders later in life.

You’re heading down the slope on your family ski trip when you begin to fall. You should: (a) Brace yourself (b) Go limp Answer: (a). Stiffening your muscles actually helps absorb the shock of an impact, taking

True or false: Artificial gas-log fireplaces are typically safer than woodburning fireplaces. Answer: True. Several studies have found that natural wood smoke contains at least five known human carcinogens. If you have a wood-burning fireplace, you can make it less harmful by burning hardwood, such as ash or beech, which emits lower levels of damaging particles compared with softwood like pine.

Your neighborhood pond has frozen over. How thick should the ice be before you break out the skates? (a) Two inches (b) Five inches (c) 12 inches Answer: (b). Four to five inches of ice can hold up to 250 pounds of weight, but make sure the ice is blue or clear. Gray, white, or opaque ice indicates a weak crystal structure and should be avoided.

You’ve taken your dog for a walk in a winter wonderland. What’s the first thing you should do when you return home? (a) Wipe her paws with a damp cloth (b) Rub her with a towel or blanket to warm her up (c) Give her a drink of water Answer: (a). “In cold weather, pets may track through ice-melting chemicals and rock salt, which can cause cuts on their pads and be hazardous if ingested,” says veterinarian Jules Benson, vice president of veterinary services for Petplan pet insurance. So give your pup’s paws a quick bath before she gets a chance to lick them clean.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant

As our judicial system is bound by laws and case law, wouldn’t it be better for a computer like Watson to decide cases? A computer has no bias. Consider our Supreme Court: Decisions are often 5–4 along party lines.

ILLUSTRATION: GRAFILU

—James Bobreski, Penn Yan, N.Y.

But who would program “Courtney”? Laws aren’t absolute like equations. They’re not comparable to chess moves that can be analyzed, or to facts, such as George Washington’s birth date. (Hmm. Was it Feb. 11, 1731, according to the Julian calendar used then? Or Feb. 22, 1732, by today’s Gregorian calendar?) Instead, they’re subject to interpretation, which is understandable: Laws are written by ordinary people, then modified (or mangled) by committees on their bumpy road to passage. As for case law, it’s teeming with human interpretations; it would just detract from our efforts to keep Courtney above the fray. Then there’s the Constitution, which embodies our fundamental laws and more. Over time, translating its precepts into current reality grows more and more difficult, demonstrated by our frequently split Supreme Court decisions. Our judicial system could be improved, all right, but not by heading toward rigidity. Fairness lies in the opposite direction. To play this week’s Numbrix, visit Parade.com/askmarilyn
