60-seconds-jeremy-pivenLast night, Tommy Hilfiger celebrated 25 years, and we're betting many party-goers are feeling like they imbibed 25 drinks, too. The crowd at Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera House was as beautiful as the jaw-dropping venue, and Jeremy Piven was no exception. The dapper star took a minute (make it ten) to take some of our questions—much to the chagrin of hundreds of fans who surrounded the Entourage actor. The conversation took some very interesting turns, to say the least. And no, we didn't ask him about sushi.

Can you chat for a quick second?
"Did you see that woman just slap me in the face? The people are very...they've had a lot to drink.

We don't like when people touch us.
"Oh—yeah."

Does it annoy the sh*t when people are up in your grill. Like we are right now?
"You know the reality is that you're out, so you have to embrace it."

Are you good about signing autographs for people?
"Yeah, absolutely. But I think everyone should be allowed to have an off moment."

You can have an off moment any time.... Anyway, are you anything like your character in Entourage?
"Maybe if I'm in traffic."

What is your secret for looking so good. You always look really suave.
Really?
We think so.

Do you have a stylist or do you dress yourself?
"I dress myself. I can't believe you think I have a stylist. That's really funny."

Do you have any celebrity crushes?
"Umm, yea I do. Oh my god, what's wrong with my brain right now? She played Queen Elizabeth."

The Queen of England? You have a crush on the Queen of England?
"The Queen. The movie The Queen."

Ah, got it. Helen Mirren?
"Helen Mirren."

Have you met her? She's hot.
"Yes."

Would you want to go on a date with her?
"She's married, so..."

Moving on, what designers do you like to wear?
"Rag & Bone, What Goes Around Comes Around. LnA—April Leight does it. She's amazing!"

Random Q—do you think Mariah Carey is pregnant?
"Ha. Maybe by..what's his name...Benjamin Button."

What's your biggest pet peeve?
"When people slap me in the face."
We won't do that.
