I'm jealous of Tunes' list.

Some of mine are only famous in odd circles:
Ann Richards
Molly Ivins
John Henry Faulk
Dave Barry
Yevgeny Yevtushenko
Robert Rauschenberg
Sat in front of Tommy Lee Jones at a play. He has an embarassing personal habit.

My dad shared an elevator with Richard Simmons once. He told my dad he looks "like a winner".

I gave Michael Douglas the finger after he cut me off on a snowy mountain road in Snowmass. He was driving a Cadillac - I was driving a BMW. I almost went down the mountain. I still think he's an asshole.

Many many years ago I also saw Kim Basinger, but I didn't meet her. She was shopping at the Kroger in Athens, GA. She is GORGEOUS and seemed really nice. I didn't want to intrude, so I didn't say anything to her but she did smile and say hello. Then two minutes later some obnoxious frat boys spotted and started tailing her so she put on sunglasses and a hat and left. I felt badly for her--she looked all content and relaxed before they saw her.

^He was nice enough, very friendly (almost overly so) and a bit stinky. All I wanted to do was sleep.

Oh why not? :-)

I worked at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences for a while and met dozens of celebs at screenings. I can say absolutely that Jack Lemon was one of the sweetest, nicest guys I've ever met. Jeff Goldberg is as strange in person as he is on screen, but very engaging.

I recently had a callback for Gus van Sant.

I sat next to Michelle Pfeiffer at a birthday dinner as a very young actress and chatted with her until I realized she was actually quite busy seducing Michael Keaton across the table from us - spreading her legs, licking her lips, etc.

I did scenes with Richard Dreyfus and Gleanne Headley that unfortunately didn't make it into Mr. Holland's Opus because they changed Gleanne Headley's storyline. I accidentally offended her on the set the day of the shoot by admiringly bringing up John Malkovich's name when she mentioned working at Steppenwolf Theatre and she was mean to me for the rest of our time together.. Whoops
That's probably my worst faux pas on a set. Ever.

He doesn't remember, but I also waited on Dreyfus once. He's an annoying diner and a very stingy tipper, but he's actually very generous to day players on the set as far as improvising and expanding their roles goes.

Ricardo Montalban, on the other hand, is the most charming man alive and a very good tipper. Madonna is nice to waitresses too. Stevie Wonder requires seven mugs of hot fresh lemonade after a concert or session. Crispin Glover came in every Saturday morning and ordered a rare hamburger with peanut butter and bacon on it for breakfast.

I went to school with Tim Robbins, and belonged to his theatre company, Actors Gang. I had a major crush on him.

You can see my good friend Lee Arenberg as one of the bald pirates in the latter two Pirates of the Carribbean movies

I guess one of my favorite celebrity encounters was when I was dating Sissy Spacek's personal assistant. She called him in the middle of our date and needed our help wrapping her Christmas presents for the cast of Raggedy Man because she was stoned (this was before she had kids). She's one of the most interesting people I've met, stoned or sober.

I worked in a restaurant a zillion years ago. Carol Channing came in with her business manager. She brought her own bottled drinking water and some vegetables, which she requested the chef to steam.

I went to a club in Chicago (a few years ago!) with a friend who was a serious amateur autograph collector to see Chuck Berry with Henny Youngman as the opening act. We got there early and my friend started talking to one of the employees about his hobby. The show started and half way through my friend got a written note from CB's manager inviting us to join CB in his dressing room after the show. It was a Twilight Zone experience, trust me!!! Joining Feeling No Pain Chuck, his big/buxom/blond/beautiful babe AND! Henny Youngman in one room was burned into my brain forever!! My friend got both of their autographs and some pictures of all of us but I can't remember where they are. I could write a book about the the "celebrities" my friend exposed/introduced me to get his prized autographs. Most of them were sweet and human - but some were stupid, stuck-up bobos.

I have another memorable one, at least for me. On my way to work and stopped at one of those trendoid chain coffee venues for an espresso, I recognized Spaulding Gray minding his own business and quietly reading at a table by himself. I marched right up, introduced myself and gushed all over him. He was reserved yet extremely gracious to me.
