...When I was 10, my mother's sister from East Texas came to visit and the 3 of us went in from Westchester County onto New York City for a big visiting-fireman trip - we saw a matinee of a Broadway musical (Stephen Sondheim'd " Company ") and ate at this rather fancy restaurant,vrhe Russian Tea room - I don't know if it's there anymore - Anyway, while we were eating, Sidney Potier walked by our table.

I was on a plane to LA with Kurt Russell and his son. My mother sat beside the guy from La La Land (forget his name) on a plane, but didn't know who he was until others approached them.

I met Margaret Atwood, and had a friendly academic debate with her.

Oh, I also had my picture taken with Kim Campbell, the first woman PM of Canada, during a tour in Ottawa.

When I was in college, I was near some celebrities who were on the presidential campaign for various candidates.

I stood right next to Sean Astin who was on Team Hilary. None of the students cared that much about what he was saying. They just wanted him to sign their “Goonies” and “Lord of the Rings” memorabilia.

A couple of months ago I lost my virginity to Scarlett Johansson.

Also Leonardo DiCaprio gave me one of his kidneys.

I think Hollywood is the Walmart of the film industry. Quantity over Quality.

In 1980 I saw Brian Keith washing his car from a bus in Hollywood Hills while on a tour bus.

He didn't seemed bothered that there were 40 tourists gawking at him while he was in shorts and no t-shirt

Shook hand with Gilligan when I was a kid, he was surly acting.
Shook hands with President Clinton on two different occasions.Once when he was governor another time when he was POTUS.
