Revealing his favorite dinosaur to be the Tyrannosaurus Rex, he reiterated that Dr. Malcolm would certainly say cloning one, as ideas go, is one big pile of s---.
"My character in the movie would probably say no. That's a bad idea to do," Goldblum continued. "That's what my character would say. I'm an actor you know, I know very little about that."
But as for whether he himself would like to be cloned, it was a resounding: "No."
