“My big goal is not to die dumb,” says the divine Bette Midler to her questioner, Armistead Maupin, in a new, frank and revealing talk for Interview magazine.

Midler fans should know that the diva has been photographed in four charming poses by Greg Gorman and she looks great.

Of her recently completed movie, “Jinxed,” Bette comments that it was “the worst experience of my entire
life. But it’s a good picture.” When Maupin asks how she coped with a co-star (Ken Wahl) who bad-mouths her to the press, Bette shrugs: “There is nothing one can do except be, you know, dignified. It’s hard to be dignified when one is covered with mud, but I’ve done the best I could.”
