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


I haven't read any other posts yet but you by far have the best encounter.

He didn't share, mind you.  I have to roll my own.

Next time you see him, tell him I think he is a bastard then

Unfortunately, he's no friend or acquaintance of mine. He might be a bastard in other ways, but I sorta doubt it.  He's stays mellowed-out most of the time.

I was a P.A. on a no-budget movie called Skin Art and got to give Kirk Baltz a ride from Brooklyn to Westchester.  This was while Reservoir Dogs was in theaters (and I had just seen it).  Only time I've ever enjoyed a drive to or from Brooklyn.  Jeez, thinking back on it, I practically chewed his ear off.   ::)
Nice pay-off (this forum needs a drum roll/cymbal crash noise) once I looked up who the guy was! I mean that's fame right there. He acts the crap out of that role.
I used to encourage everyone I knew to make art; I don't do that so much anymore. - Banksy

Zac Efron

That's the best one.

Story behind that was I coming home from college in Boston and my Dad picked me up at Penn Station in NYC. We were driving past the Ed Sullivan Theater and Efron was on Letterman. They had finished taping and he walked out a side door to avoid the crowds (which there still was quite a few people). So I'm sitting in traffic and Efron's car (he's in the back) is next to mine with the window down for about twenty minutes until they made a right.

I met Rian Johnson after a screening of The Shining, and did a poor job of containing my fan-boyness. I'm not quite sure what to say to people I admire in public.  I didn't want to bother him too much, because he was with others, so I just said I love Brick and think Looper looks terrific.
