Yes, I'm older than dirt, and altho he was known to be quite the introvert, I don't recall ever hearing he was anything near "obnoxious".

I met a few when they were filming "Lincoln" here. James Spader was nice, but it seemed kind of forced. His wife was nothing but outgoing and positive.

David Strathairn was pretty friendly and happy to sign autographs.

But the nicest celebrity (and person) ever is John Hawkes. He walked a few miles from his hotel and ate lunch several times at a restaurant I managed and was always down for a conversation or lighthearted joke. Such a cool dude.

She isn't lying about the story. I'm her daughter and she told me this story years ago.

Nobody said she was lying. Just interested in more details about the encounter. In particular, was he extremely drunk at the time? From what I've gathered about Hendrix, that's about the only time when he'd be anything other than a friendly, rather quiet guy.

From what I understand, it was a brief encounter. She was waitressing at a restaurant in the west village and she served him. He was a little rude apparently, and she didn't know it was him, so she casually complained to another waitress who told her it was Jimi Hendrix.

Being "a little rude" makes him "the most obnoxious" celebrity one has met?

I'm just a second hand story and that was my interpretation. She can tell it better.

My sister once had a drink and chatted with Ben Stiller in a NYC club. She said he was really nice.
But this was before he became super famous. Maybe stardom made him into a jerk.
