Also met Nick Novak, who is an NFL kicker. He actually trained with one of my close friends who is a former NFL kicker himself. Real quiet guy.

Sugar Bear, who is big time on the go-go music scene, worked at my HS in Virginia while I attended there. Pretty approachable and you could always crack a joke with him.
Lot's of CEOs pull down small salaries to keep taxes lower. I'm sure he's a great guy, but not because of his low salary.

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.
Whaa? He may be a prick in real life, but he's made some really great movies! Titanic (didn't like it when I originally saw it but liked it much more when I saw it recently). Gangs of New York, The Departed, Blood Diamond....come to think of it, when has he done a movie that wasn't worth watching?

She was finished filming for the day, and just came over and started shooting the breeze with us. She was very nice and pretty funny too.
Just from her interviews, Drew Barrymore has always struck me as very nice and fun. She's always so positive about everything. I pictured her as the type of person who can look at an ugly person and find the best feature about them.

Luther Vandross was the nastiest SOB I ever met... I worked at a NYC rehearsal studio for many years so I have met TONS of celebs. I never really talked to them since I know they don't want to be bothered half the time. In his case.. my aunt is a HUGE fan.. So I kindly asked if I could take his photo. He said "Ooh just hurry up and take my f*cking picture already*... I was in such shock.. I snapped and walked away.. The rest of the day he was just rude and nasty to our entire staff, including his.

Susan Lucci was really sweet.. and little!! She came alll the way to my little cubby hole office to privately use my phone.

Dax Riggs seemed like a completely self absorbed d-bag.
There, I've been waiting to tell someone that for 15 years.

The Roots: Pretty much exactly what you'd think they were like. Very laid back. Questlove is a funny guy.

Common: Laid back, usually high.

Eminem: Quiet. Only talks to people he knows well. Has a surly vibe.

KRS-One: Kind of an ass. But not too bad a dude somehow.

Lauryn Hill: Diva-ish.

LOL - The only reason I remember Lee Michaels is due to DJs mentioning his rudeness whenever they'd play his one-and-only hit "Do You Know That I'm Mean?" Or something like that... it was very forgettable.
