I once met (late) George Lindsey, Goober of the Andy Griffith show about 1970 at the Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Michigan. He was very nice, and we chatted for a bit.

I sat next to Markie Post (Night Court, Fall Guy, Hearts Afire) in a summer school High School Art class, in Lafayette, CA. We got a long really well during class, but I never considered asking her out because she was a junior and I was a freshman at the time.

We met TV Chef Martin Yan at an event and he made fun of my son who was 4 at the time, which we thought was funny, but he didn't. At that same event we met Norm Abram of "This Old House" who was really friendly, and spent a lot more time than I would have expected chatting with us.

I bet she looked great. Did she have long, straight hair then?

My husband fixed Gillian Anderson's car that had broken down on her way through our town. It was not long after the original X-files series ended. She was not in a good mood (who would be in that situation), and was a bit grumpy with one of the workers who saw her name on her credit card and said something dumb like "hey, you're that actress". My husband approached her while she was waiting, and said he was a real fan of the X-files and her demeanor brightened instantly. They chatted for a few minutes and my husband said she was really nice. And short. And stunning, even in casual clothes with no makeup.

Yes, and that following winter was named queen of some local winter festival.

Slim Thug is a giant in real life.
I knew you were from Houston before I read beyond those first few words.

Such a cat thing to do.

When I worked for the phone company as an operator, I assisted on calls for Ed Sullivan, Dr Michael DeBakey, and John Glenn. All were very polite during the brief encounters. Then there was the one collect call from “Jesus Christ”, who was very impatient, which I’ve mentioned before.

I met Jim Kiick, Larry Csonka, and Garo Yepremian in person many years ago when the Dolphins were just starting out and they were there in a room at Burdines for a publicity event. Of course they were pleasant for that, but I think only Mr Yepremian was actually enjoying himself.

I met Arnold Palmer in Latrobe, PA. He was amiable.

Nothing recent.

My husband works in TV so whenever big names go through his studio, I try and stop by for a visit.

Here are the ones that I've met:

NICEST
1. Mark Wahlberg
2. Joe Pesci
3. Colin Firth
4. Ben Affleck
5. Gary Oldman
*These actors were so incredibly nice and easy to talk to.

RUDEST
1. Tom Hanks
2. Natalie Portman
3. Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt (I saw them back in Jan. of 2012 when they were still together).
4. Samuel L. Jackson
*I don't know what the deal is w/ these rude celebs but they had major attitudes. Really don't care to see any of their movies now.

Now that's a first with Tom Hanks. I guess he's entitled to one bad day.
