Without giving away too much info on my last job which would get me in LEGAL trouble with my old boss, here goes.....

This is almost exactly what was said:

Me: "Good Morning Mr. Reed....what can I do for you today?"

Lou Reed: " What!?" {said borderline loud but with a STERN tone}

Me:"Oh...I said good morning... can I help you?"


Lou Reed: "I'M NOT TALKING TO YOU! CAN'T YOU SEE I'M ON THE PHONE!!" {he had a mobile ear piece in his ear which I didnt notice....but hey--he walked up to me and he wasnt talking--so I asked if I could help...NO i dint notice the earpiece.--and he YELLED that last statement at me. YELLED!}

Me: "Oh...excuse me...I didnt notice"


Lou Reed:"no...not you Phil....I'm at this fu*k**g {insert name of my job}..and the pr*ck behind the counter has no f*cK*ng clue"
THAT IS A DIRECT QUOTE


Now that was not my first or last encounter with him, so I knew what to expect.
But I couldn't react because my boss was in the area.

I could go on and on about him....
He's had arguments with a LOT of people at that job.
Like I said...Google his name and you'll see how many people know about him and his EVIL ways.

EXAMPLE ONE

EXAMPLE TWO

Nicest was Heidi Klum and Samantha Ronson ( not sure if she really fits celebrity status)

Rudest was Bryan Ferry. YUK

I thought he was very rude, but then I figured he was just NOT wanting to deal with "fans" and I guess I am lucky he even agreed to an autograph at all.
I'm not sure if Tommy still lives here in San Antonio but he's known to be to be this way by the locals.

Pro football wise at card shows would be Johnny Unitas, Floyd Little, Bob Lilly, Merlin Olsen, and former Bronco head coach Red Miller.. The most personable was Baltimore Colt HOFer Raymond Berry. One of the most soft spoken and friendly men I've ever met.
Great lists. I'll second John Hartford. I loved that man. Wonderful human being. He was probably the most content human being I've ever known. Miss him tremendously.

I don't think I have a worst. Maybe Mamie Van Dorn for those of you who are old enough to remember her. She owned an antique shop for a while and we'd wander in there. She wasn't tremedously warm. But she visited a lot of U.S. troops in hospitals during Vietnam so I'm giving her a huge break. Maybe we always managed to go in when her feet hurt. Or something.

I'll add a nicest. (You always forget the biggies.) Michael Jackson. Who used to be a Disneyland regular. My dad did his walking at Disneyland and we'd often meet up there. Michael had a "reputation" among some of the cast members but he got to where he recognized my dad and would always smile and wave to him and chat for a few minutes. Goodness only knows what they talked about. My dad met a lot of clebs in his day but Michael was always one of his favorites.

And I've got to list Tommy Lasorda simply because the guy is such a hoot.

Its hard when you live in NYC to actually stop a celeb and talk to them since we're always in a hurry (some stereotypes are true). Ive been lucky to meet quite a few celebs and its always very random.
Nice ones - Martin Sheen, total class act. Also, the guy who plays Junior on the Sopranos is also really down to earth. Actually hung out with me and my co-workers at happy hour and stayed the whole time! We were all big fans of the show.
Saw Janet Jackson in the VIP lounge of a club in the Village and she actually let me come into the VIP lounge to say hi and take a picture. Very cool.

Now for the nasty ones. Same night I saw Janet, Leo DiCaprio was also at the club. He was a total dick. He threw drinks on people and also spit on some patrons. Rudest celeb I ever met.
Saw Eminem in Times Square, didnt talk to him but he refused to take pictures or sign autographs and was visibly annoyed at the attention.
My friend works in A&R for a record label and said that Fred Durst, Gene Simmons, and Puffy are all really rude and obnoxious. She said Puffy is the absolute worst and makes ridiculous demands (I remember something about water only be filled 2/3 of the way in all his glasses).

I'm not surprised that Puffy is rude and obnoxious. In that "Making the Band" show he did, he always made the contestants run the craziest errands...like get a cheesecake in the middle of the night.

I only met one "celebrity", Baby Bash and a guy who was apparently part of 50 Cent's entourage years ago in South Beach, FL. I got to take a photo with Baby Bash and had a nice brief conversation w/ the entourage member. Both very nice people from what I remember.

glad to hear Martin Sheen is nice. Also Janet Jackson.
What has Leo done recently or for that matter what has he ever done on film worth watching??? My answer-nothing!
Eminem should be thankful someone even asked. he's a nobody to me.
Puffy's ego is puffed up toooooo much. Ditto for Gene.
