That's been going on for quite some time with celebs.

There was a genuine article stating that fact and naming names about a decade ago.
You can still Google now and at least get some more current names from random posters.

Barbara Streisand was mentioned in the above article I read stating that none of the crew was to give eye contact while she was rehearsing.

Tom Cruise was also mentioned.
According to some crew members, he had a memo passed at least by the time of Mission Impossible III, stating any violations of the rule would cause termination of the crew member.

He also had a white light-filtering overhead shade, or complete upside-down U-shaped tunnel connected from the top of the doorway of his Star Waggon Trailer to the top of the stage door, either to control the lighting of his face in case someone snuck a picture of him and/or thwart unauthorized overhead "Slop-a-rots-see" photos.

Some stars won't even allow their make-up or hair stylists to talk with them while in the chair or otherwise.

Nicest= The Whole Taylor Family ,James,Kate,Liv,Hugh and all the kids and wives.Harry Carson and Phil Simms of the NY Giants.


Nastiest= Lawrence Taylor (NY Giants),John Denver. Went to see JD at Merriweather Post in MD and we got there and hour before the concert was to start .The Mrs was eight months pregnant and as we were getting ready to go in the heavens opened up and with rain and lightning,stayed in the car till it was over ,then went to to go to our seats which were 5th row up, two on the isle from the stage. WE were not alowed to sit and he had just walked on stage,....no late 's allowed seated till the third song by "orders " of Mr Denver. So we stayed till it was done but as he walked off stage ,we were all standing so I went over to the edge of the stage and got real mad with some people ,his manager ended up calling me at home and I let him have it all so. I love his music but I never went to another show of his or bought another record and still won't.It was over 34 years ago.

What's the deal w/ eye contact? What a preposterous idea to ban someone of eye contact.

It is easier to ignore you if you do not make eye contact with them.

But they all want you to watch or hear their next project. Too many of them just don't want to dance with the ones that brung 'em.

Mets tons of celebs back in da day. Wayne Gretzky, Lou Ferrigno, Nancy Wilson, (& the WHOLE band HEART) back in da 80s.

Many many more minor celebs, all kinds of rock n rollers, & went to Switzerland & played w/ pro NHL hockey guys in 80s in hockey camps. Too many to think of -- but NONE & I mean NONE were rude. They only played their part as celebs meeting those not as big named, & I respected since they worked their way to that position & if it were me, I'd surely act same.

Don't ya think they tired of insults, barbs, jabs in the press, long ardous hrs, etc. & how can ya expect them to be sane or cordial? Hell, after a long day I'm ready to fight a lion indoors -- & I'm just a normal avg Joe vs stardom & fame & the hounding from nutjobs on a daily basis.
