Interview with Time Out New York’s Kate Lowenstein

I can’t believe you just stroked my cheek. [Laughs] My partner always says, “Bernt! You always touch strangers!” It’s really in my nature. I feel it’s something we should do more of.

You don’t ever get punched? No! Never! Not even by the smallest, straightest guy ever. They kind of appreciate it.

You strike me as a partyer. I think I’m more…enjoying life. Like, I love food; I love going out with friends. My partner and I own an interior-design company—it’s in Norway and New York. And I’m pretty obsessed with fashion.
