2012 Celebrity bucket lists

Chris Colfer

1. Jake Abel, ‘The Host’

If I knew the world was going to end, I would skydive — which is something that normal people do, but it would take the end of the Earth for me. But without a parachute. I would just jump out of an airplane.

2. Kiernan Shipka,  ‘Mad Men’

I don’t think the world’s going to end — but if it really was going to, I’d probably want to skydive.

3. Chris Colfer, ‘Glee’

You know, I’ve always had a really, really detailed bucket list, and I’d say I’m only about 1/90th of the way there, so I really hope the Mayans aren’t right because I have a lot of stuff I want to do, and I’m going to be really, really pissed if it all ends and I’m not able to. If I had a month left, I’d probably just go on a very expensive vacation.

4. Maggie Grace, ‘Taken 2’

Honestly, one of my sort of bucket list items I just ticked off. I did a Broadway play for the first time. It was terrifying. But it’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was 11 years old. So I at least checked one off.

5. Kellan Lutz, ‘The Twilight Saga’

No, I don’t [have one], because I don’t believe the world’s going to come to an end. God never gave a date, so I don’t believe it’s going to happen. So there’s no need for me to make a plan B with all that. I’m just living my life every day to the fullest, enjoying life and taking advantage of opportunities.

6. Michael Sheen, ‘The Twilight Saga’

I was actually thinking of ending the world tonight, at the “Twilight” premiere. When the film finishes, my curtain call is to suddenly reveal myself as the god Quetzalcoatl and bring it all to an end.

7. Billy Burke, ‘Revolution’

No, I don’t have one. I wish all the doomsday-ers well. I think they’re all going to be fine on Dec. 21. But if I’m wrong, then I’ll see you on the other side.

8. Teresa Palmer, ‘Warm Bodies’

Oh gosh, end of the world bucket list? Yeah, I would’ve liked to have had a baby before the end of the world, but there’s not really time for that. I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I want to jump out of a plane, for sure. I would just eat so much food, 24-7, just eat and eat and eat. Travel around the world, eating from all different cultures. That’d be amazing.

9. Max Burkholder, ‘Parenthood’

Skydive, scuba dive … everything dive. Just a bunch of stuff like that, just the craziest things you can do.

10. Joel McHale, ‘Community’

An end of the world bucket list? Yes. A really sturdy bucket.
