My Celebrity Encounters
« on: November 01, 2009, 01:19:37 AM »
Here are a few of my celebrity encounters:

1. I rode in an elevator with Cary Grant, in my youth, not his.

2. I saw Kristen Dunst at LAX a couple of two years ago.  She looked fabulous.

3. A couple of years ago I sat in an airport lounge with Ian McEwan and a woman, I suppose, his wife. She talked on her cell phone while he cruised the refreshment bar and drank.

4. I ate dinner at the table next to Tommy Lee Jones in a restaurant in Midland TX.  He had the enchiladas, good choice.

5. I smoked weed backstage with Willie Nelson, in my youth, not his.

What about yours?

Clovis claims he had sex with Nathan Fillion. I don't believe it.

I ate breakfast next to Harry Connick Jr. and his little girl while me and my wife were vacationing in Cape Cod, MA.

Wow. I am really impressed with this. Truly.

I saw Janet Reno walking around on my campus once. And my parents told me as a family we met Tom Brokaw which I was too young to remember.

Really the closest anyone in family got to a celebrity was when my sister ate popcorn while James Purefoy and Tom Hollander (she says) stared at her from across the room while seeing a play directed by Cate Blanchett's husband.

lol. Not quite true but close.




1) I sat next to Flavour Flav on a plane.

2) I have met many of the famous poker players (Phil Ivey, Daniel Negraneu etc)

3) I played poker with Jerome Iginla

4) I had dinner next to Bruce Springsteen (my brother has an awesome story about this trip. Springsteen was in town for a concert and staying at the hotel where my brother was executive chef. One of his waitresses comes in and says some homeless looking guy just ordered and $300 bottle of wine and can he clear it before she gives it to him. She points him out and its Springteen, of course!)

I sat next to Justin Timberlake at lunch at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

I saw Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston filming a scene for The Break Up

I saw John Cusack riding his bike on the lakefront in Chicago.

My mom was an extra in Lost in Yonkers, so we went down to the set where I got to meet Richard Dreyfuss, Mercedes Ruehl, and David Strathairn (who is extremely tiny in person).

I've had none of these, though I'd love to meet David Henrie or Demi or someone like that.

I sat behind Andy Serkis in a theatre in London stood a couple feet away from Patrick Stewart in the lobby of another theatre. We made eye contact.
