    I will forget what was mentioned about Richard Dean Anderson here. For my world to function he has to be the most flawless person in existence.

    I remember there was a director commentary for one episode of SG-1 where the director said he loved putting Daniel Jackson and O'Niell together, because the dude playing Jackson would do his scene work and nail the scene and just be acting all over the place, and RDA would get grumpy old man and turn up the acting to show this kid who's boss.

    It's fantastic to imagine that Michael Shanks and RDA were basically playing themselves except as soldiers in every scene.

    Tons of industries did this in the '80s and '90s, when crap that boomers had as kids became collectible. They failed to realize that the reason it was worth something now was that 99 out of every 100 kids put their Mickey Mantle rookie card in their bicycle spokes to make a motorcycle noise, or their mom threw the stuff out when they got older, or it got destroyed somehow. Anything that was marketed as "ooh this is collectible" is pretty much guaranteed never to be so because people are actively saving them.

    There are a couple beanie babies that are worth $200 or so I think. Maybe in 20 years we might see some of this stuff be worth something, but I highly doubt it.

    Baseball cards is an excellent example as that entire market went bust in a spectacular way. I used to love giving one of my co-workers shit about it as he had boxes upon boxes of collected cards in a closet in his house.

    Back on topic: I met and chatted with the members of Sevendust during a meet and greet they were doing at a local skate store. Though I never enjoyed their music enough to buy any albums, I couldn't argue that they weren't a great live act and really nice dudes too. They kept asking if we were going to their show that night and I just didn't have the heart to tell them that I refused to pay money for a Megadeth concert period, even if the opening act was actually decent.

    My friend asked Nicolas Cage if he'd seen the SNL Celebrity Jeopardy skit about him. This was during a Q&A session in a film class, with a few hundred people present. To his credit, he said no and laughed it off. Seemed like a nice guy though. I asked him something stupid about doing stunts in Face Off or something.

    Shawn Penn used to come into the bookstore I worked at way back when. Really short with people. Same with Dana Carvey. Not outright rude, but kind of unpleasant to deal with. Robin Wright Penn was always really sweet though.

    Robin Williams is awesome in person. But I guess this isn't the stories about awesome celebrity thread.

    I don't have any myself, but both my dad and my grandpa have some.

    The year after college, my dad worked for the executive council of his fraternity. Pretty sweet job, he would go around to colleges, make sure that their paperwork is in order during the day, and go out partying with the frat during the night. One of his trips took him to the University of Missouri. That chapter of the Sigma Chis had a William Bradley Pitt who in a few months would move to Los Angeles only weeks before graduation and pursue an acting career. Oh, he'd start going by his middle name. My dad claims not to remember Pitt at all, and only found out about Brad Pitt years later.

    Clarence Thomas, as you may know, is a Catholic; he even attended seminary. His wife is from Omaha and his mother-in-law now lives in Lincoln. When the Supreme Court is in recess, Thomas likes to drive cross country in his RV. He likes to park it in the parking lot of the private school/church that I attended for Kindergarten through 8th grade. Anyways, my dad attends Mass every Sunday mainly because after Mass, he and the... head priest guy (I'm forgetting the actual term) are friends and they'll eat lunch together after Mass and they'll occasionally play golf. One Sunday, Clarence Thomas approaches the priest and says how much he liked the sermon. The priest invites Thomas to join him for a round of golf, and so that Sunday, my dad had a tee time with Clarence Thomas, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Now, they have pretty strict rules about talking about cases and my dad wasn't dumb enough to do that. But my dad says that Clarence Thomas is the most taciturn guy he's ever met. There was literally no subject that he'd engage on during the entire 18 holes.

    My grandfather attended the University of Nebraska at the same time that Johnny Carson did. Carson was the president of the Greek Council and my grandpa was the president of his fraternity, so they knew each other pretty well. They ended up co-emceeing a campus event, and got in trouble with the administration for the ribald humor that went on.

    Also, my grandfather grew up in the same town as Dick Cavett, but was several years older than him. He did nearly punch him out when he found Dick with his younger sister making time.

    Just remembered two more encounters. I think I told this story in an H&A thread awhile ago, but when I was in Jr. high I had a huge crush on Drew Barrymore. To her credit, my girlfriend at the time found out she was giving a talk at Stanford as part of a panel (on the female condom, no less). Anyway, we went. We hung around early to meet her on the way in, and while we only had like 30 seconds, she was really gracious and nice.

    So after the panel, she sticks around to sign autographs for people. We hurry to the line and wait a bit. We finally get up there and she recognizes us from the entry, chats for a minute, signs whatever picture I'd brought, and takes a photo with us.

    Anyway, the guy right after us walks up with an issue of the Playboy she was in -- like four years prior to this thing, mind you -- and asks her to sign it. She was remarkably cool with it actually - though she did make a joke about how old it was.

    I also met Chuck Palahniuk when I worked at the book store. He was definitely the coolest author I met at that job. Hung around for half an hour signing stuff, even though it was the middle of a weekday and the store was dead. I had him sign a copy of Fight Club and a copy of Choke - my boss made some joke about drugs, and he wrote in Choke: "Hey [me], are you holding dude?! Pass it already, Chuck."

    I went to that FanEx in 06 as well for Alice Coopers autograph. Very warm, soft spoken guy when he's off stage. Wrapped up the signings and proceeded to go buy comics and stuff himself. He likes hitting the green when he plays a show here and visits the farmers market with a fake mustache. His scene in Waynes World is no exaggeration: he is just like that. I always make it a point to see his show when he's in town.

    So, these aren't technically my encounters, by they are pretty strangely connected together.

    1) First Year University, one of my really good friends is out of Napanee. One of her good friends apparently dated Avril Lavigne back just before she got big. He dumped her. Apparently, she was/is a total bitch.

    Anyway, as the story goes, not long after this, after signing her big record deal or some other major event of the like, she call this guy back up out of the blue. Brags to him about what happened and basically ends the whole thing with "Aren't you sad you dumped me now?".

    To which he replied "No, cause your a bitch."


    2) Years later, I'm chatting with the then boyfriend of my cousin at some family thing. He apparently went to school with the guys from Sum 41.

    I'm like "That's kinda cool".
    He says "Yeah, they were all really nice guys. ..... Except Deryck Whibley. (The lead singer) That guys a dickhole."

    I laughed.

    Apparently it was a match made in heaven.

    OH MY GOD! Is he the SK8ER boi?

    My sister is a publicist, so she has to deal with random celebs sometimes. Apparently Zach Braff is a douche who, when he gets free shit, doesn't bother to tip or have photos taken of him at an establishment to at least help promote it, and then flips out on the staff when the camera men take photos of the area around him because he thinks they were taking his photo.

    She also may have put together the party that Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard met at, which makes me super angry because Kristen Bell is mine, dammit.

    Also, we were checking into a hotel in Vegas and we were in the special lobby with the two Davids from some season of American Idol. My sister sort of shoulder checked them on her way out of the room because they were in her way.

    Non Asshole Stories:
    Ryan Reynolds - My old acting teacher used to be/is friends with him, so he'd often have him come down to the class and just chat. This was before Ryan hit it big, but he still had a TV show and he didnt let it goto his head. Years later (and once people started to know his name), I met him again at a bar randomly. He just came down solo, hung around chatting with people, and acting like a normal human being.

    Patrick Stewert - Loves soccer. LOVES IT. I was referring a few soccer games during a weekend tournament, and I seriously think he spent more time there than I did. Seriously, he was there for the entire weekend, and I dont think he knew anyone. He was just on the sidelines watching and cheering, and when I first saw him I just thought he was a parent. It wasn't until he yelled at me for a questionable call that I and others began to realize who he was. After that, the news spread like wildfire. He talked to EVERYONE, gave some kids soccer tips, and even donated a chunk of money to the local youth soccer associations. He came back the next day and supposedly even helped run lines for a couple games.

    Robin Williams - This is my Mom's story. She was walking our dog in on the street in a fairly hill area when she took a nasty fall on some gravel and cut her leg up fairly bad. While she was picking herself up a limo coming from behind her pulled up and stopped. The driver pops out, says he saw her fall and asks if shes ok or if she needs a ride or anything. My Mom thanks him, but since she wasnt to far away from and home and was bleeding quite a bit she didnt want to muss up the limo. Lo and behold, the back door opens up and Robin Williams steps out, saying that it did look like a nasty fall and that perhaps they should drive her home. My mom, flabbergasted but still not wanting to be any trouble refuses again, which prompts Robin to quip "Ma'am, I may not be a Doctor, put I get paid ridiculous amounts of money to pretend I am. Now get in that car so I can do my good deed for the day." As my mom would later say "Who can argue with Patch Adams?"

    That was really less assholish from Bale than it seemed. The other guy was fucking up something major, had been asked not to do his stupid shit, and decided right in the middle of a goddamn scene to tinker with the lights again and fuck up the acting.

    I'm really laid back about performing, and since I don't really do anything not live where I need to just continue playing I don't really have the luxury of going off on people for dumb shit, but man it is completely understandable to want to kill a dude who fucks up your work while performing anything remotely serious. I have a bunch of stories about jobs where someone had no regard for proper working procedures and I could go on for hours about how much they suck.

    This has become my favorite thread. Sadly I have no real celebrity stories. I do however remember that during a Coldplay concert during the middle of it Chris started laughing because these balloons that were supposed to come down on us all blew away. He then talked to us a bit about coming to the U.S. and somehow he ended up talking about orgys. Pretty cool.

    The best for me was a chance encounter with Sylvester Stallone who was incredibly down to earth and humble. Where people get this egotistical impression of him I will never know. In that brief period of time I was able to thank him for the profound impact he has had on my life and the inspiration he has provided, which I'm sure he's heard millions of times over the past few decades, but he was very engaged in the conversation, humble, and kind. I was beyond impressed. He's always been my biggest hero and he certainly exceeded my expectations. Great guy.

    I also got to talk to Christian Bale for about 10 minutes or so--a friend of mine's sister interned on the set of Batman Begins--to make a long story short, it was a short period of time, but Christian is a very cool person. Not at all an asshole. I found him to be quite warm and friendly. People need to stop taking soundbites released into the media and judging people based upon those.

    The worst was probably William Shatner. Not a complete asshole, but so unbelievably full of himself that it just completely ruined my image of him. It's hard to look at Captain Kirk the same way now.

    Although I didn't meet him, my uncle met Steven Seagal in the early 90s, shortly after Out For Justice came out, and he said he was very nice and talkative. I guess it just depends on the situation, the mood a person is in, how people interpret different things, etc.

    Not asshole stories:

    - Michael Moore was in town promoting and filming a bit for his Bravo show "The Awful Truth" back in 1999, and gave a free talk and book signing at the local junior college. He showed a clip from the show, took some questions, had the audience act out some bits for the comedy segments of the new show, and then stayed afterward to just hang out and talk with anyone who wanted to stay. We and about six other people sat in a small classroom with him off the main lecture hall and ended up BSing about politics, sports, and TV till after 1am. He was a nice guy and seemed to genuinely enjoy just hanging out and chatting with a bunch of students. My friend got a few photos of himself grabbing Moore's ass, which are now enshrined in our group photo album; I told Moore I had a huge crush on Janeane Garofalo and he smiled ruefully and said "join the club."

    - Stephen Jay Gould came to KU in 1999 to speak on the subject of evolution (which the Kansas Board of Education had voted 5-4 to ban for the second time). He gave a talk to a packed house, covered a huge range of topics - not just evolution, but biology in general, and the intersection of politics and science - and afterwards deftly fielded a bunch of asshole questions from some asshole Christians. Afterward, my roommate and I sneaked into the reception hall backstage with a pass one of us had ganked and got to see the man in person. There was a giant banquet table groaning under the weight of canapes and chicken cordon bleu and a huge selection of champagne (this despite the Chancellor's office announcing earlier that year that KU would henceforth be a dry campus at all functions, faculty and alumni included), and while we gorged on food, Gould was relaxing on a couch as a giant line of academic supplicants snaked around the room to ask him questions that they'd probably spent months dreaming up. He wasn't having any of it. He didn't want to talk shop, he wanted to know how the Red Sox were doing, and kept loudly announcing this to the room at large while the Chancellor stood a little off to the side and chuckled nervously. Some people might call this assholish, but I can't find it in my heart to blame him for wanting to take an hour off from work, you know?

    I used to be a street photographer on Miami Beach and used to deal with people who were looking for fame asking me to photograph them which I would not. There are a lot of celebrity wannabees in south Florida and sit in any bar or strip club and you are bound to encounter someone outright lying about being an actor, screenwriter, film producer etc. They can be real a-holes when you don't believe them.

    There are also those claiming to be famous or related to a rich family to con others out of money. A month ago I met a man claiming to be one of the Du Ponts and watched him get some favors and a loan from a business as this man was convincing that a trust fund was about to be released to him. Saw him last week with a black eye and a lot of facial cuts. I guess someone wanted payback.

    The same friend also met Adam Sandler once. He was performing at his university and my friend got to shoot some hoops with him.

    I was in press area for the Reading Festival looking around for artists to have my picture taken with. Most were happy to pose for a pic over the weekend.

    However on the second day Jack Osbourne steps out of the MTV trailer parked in a corner. Before he leaves the enclosure (the trailer was surrounded by a fence so they could do interviews and stuff). Two security guards walk up to him and together they start walking towards the backstage area, the guards basically walk in front a few steps ahead pushing people aside and stopping anyone getting anywhere near Jack. Several people were trying to get autographs but were shoved away. Mr Osbourne didn't look even remotely uncomfortable during all of this and just dismissively wave away protests.

    Now I can imagine this kind of over the top security for a megastar or a president but a minor reality star?

    In contrast the considerably more famous Muse hung around signing stuff for ages and had to be dragged away by security so they could make their set (they were due on stage half an hour later).

    Non Asshole Stories:
    Patrick Stewert - Loves soccer. LOVES IT. I was referring a few soccer games during a weekend tournament, and I seriously think he spent more time there than I did. Seriously, he was there for the entire weekend, and I dont think he knew anyone. He was just on the sidelines watching and cheering, and when I first saw him I just thought he was a parent. It wasn't until he yelled at me for a questionable call that I and others began to realize who he was. After that, the news spread like wildfire. He talked to EVERYONE, gave some kids soccer tips, and even donated a chunk of money to the local youth soccer associations. He came back the next day and supposedly even helped run lines for a couple games.

    Well you see, by that point, he's seen everything.

    I think it would have made my day if he was ran lines and at some point said "Make it so." In fact, I am quite positive if he'd done that I would have made it right there on the spot. That's an awesome story.
