Q: What were your favorite roles?

A: I loved playing Anita in “West Side Story,” and I loved, loved playing Sister Peter Marie in “Oz.” And talk about casting away from type. Rita Moreno as a nun -- say what?

Q: Do you see yourself first as a dancer or singer or actor, or are they so completely intertwined?

A: I see myself as an actress, always have. Even when I sang. My selection of songs always requires a lot of acting. I am an actress who sings. Honey I am about to be 82. I call it moving! Chita Rivera dances. I move.

Q: Since you brought her up, people always seem to confuse you two, don’t they?

A: We are attached at the hip, the two of us -- “West Side Story,” “The Rink” -- it goes on and on. And we don’t resemble each other. I have had show people tell me they loved me in something. (I say) “No, you didn’t.” (They say) “No, no, no! Don’t be modest.” I even have had people ask me for her autograph. I feel bad. I don’t want to sign. I am so sorry. You are thinking of Chita Rivera, and I am Rita Moreno. Every so often it will be with someone incredibly famous, and I say “Thank you! Thank you!” I don’t want to embarrass them.

Q: What else would you have done?

A: I can’t think of anything I would have done. I am someone whose DNA was absolutely in the performing arts.
