Yeh George Clooney is lovely! met him myself. He's hot too! *drool*. I don't know what Jennifer Lopez problem is though having come across her myself in LA. I was reading another account here of how she has people talk to you before you come into contact with her telling you not to talk to her or make eye contact with her. Seriously who does she think she is? is she THAT up herself? she thinks she's a goddess or something and everyone has to worship the ground she walks on 24/7 and pander to her every whim without question. The only reason she is even really famous is her ass! I would love to have a 1 to 1 with her for 10 minutes just to try and get it through her huge ego inflated self obsessed head that not everyone likes her or even thinks she's relevant anymore.

My dad used to get tickets to the Buick Classic PGA event at Westchester Country Club in NY. Met nearly all the golfers and Phil Mickelson was by far the nicest while Tiger Woods was a complete jerk. Granted he was the #1 golfer at the time, but still I can't stand these celebrities who feel like they're God's gift to the planet.

At an event in NY I was walking and not paying attention and about got knocked down by a this big tall guy with a Southern accent asking if I was okay. He grabbed my arms to hold me steady, and as I looked up to him, it was Andy Pettitte, the former Yankee pitcher. That man is HUGE.

I've never been an autograph hound, but I went to an event at the mall by where I lived to meet Robin Ventura(was playing for the Mets then, now manager for the Chicago White Sox.) Very nice and handsome. I was completely awestruck and all I could manage to say was, "Have a good night".

My dad sold cars for years in CT and FL, so he met quite a few people. He sold a car to George C. Scott when "Patton" first came out. He said George was a little different, but a good guy to do business with. He also sold to Peter Criss, the KISS drummer/cat. He plead with my dad not to tell people where he lived because his house had been vandalized. By law my dad couldn't do that, but he said he feared for his safety. My dad said he was a very nice guy though.

My dad also was a marksman and got to shoot with Robert Stack, and Roy Rogers. We actually had pictures of Roy at the range with him. My dad also spoke very highly of those men.

About 20 years ago saw Florence Stanley who played the judge on My Two Dads and Fish's wife on Barney Miller at a restaurant on Columbus Ave in Manhattan. She was having lunch with her husband so we didn't bother her, but she seemed like a very nice lady. Our waiter liked her, too.

There are many, many more, but that's all I can think of now.

I think she is beginning to find that out.

However the album has failed to entice US music buyers into parting with
their money - it's reportedly sold just 400,000 copies in three weeks on
release.


A source tells British newspaper the DAILY RECORD, "Jennifer is devastated
by these numbers. It shows that her grip on the public's imagination is
slipping and, let's face it, the album isn't that good.


"With the amount of flops she's had in her recent movies, she's pretty
upset."

Good. I don't wish it on many people but I hope her career falls flat on its face. She doesn't deserve her fame! she'll be a washed up hasbin in a few years hopefully.

I worked at a franchise massage parlor where Bam Margera's ex wife and ex mom in law regularly visited.

Missy's mom was a complete sweetheart, but she had a wicked tongue when she discussed Bam. Apparently she loathed him and talked about him any chance she could, without even being asked or him being brought into the conversation topic. Missy was moving away because Bam had caused so much emotional pain, in which the mom added, "That fat idiot probably got my Missy infested with diseases."

Missy on the other hand was a complete wench. She didn't have a membership but our manager bent over backwards and licked her ass on command. We would have to let her get away with anything, and she knew it. She would constantly show up late for her appointments, costing the massage therapist money. When she did show up on time she spent it in her range rover hot boxing it up with a female friend, then coming in stoned and late..again. When she "checked in" (more liked walked by us and waited to be seen) it felt like we were beneath her. However, she did tip the therapist well. When she was about to move my coworker mustered up the energy to "talk" to her. Needless to say it didn't go well. "So you're moving, I bet that's going to be hard because you and your mom are so close." "Why does it matter to you? (Rolls eyes). My life does not need to be on display." -missy. We only knew she was moving because her mom told us!

I know people who have worked with her. (Film crew.) She's on time, knows her lines, and treats the crew well.

Clooney, BTW, worked with her and says the same.

I haven't read through all of the other posts, but I met George Takei and he is an outstanding person to meet. It was at a convention, so I expected a quick signature, a smile and that was it. This just wasn't the case. There was no line behind my wife and I so we sat there with him and chatted for a decent amount of time. He is truly a genuine person and if anyone has a chance to meet him, they should.

Now Walter Koenig on the other hand. 1 word... prick.

Met Paul McCartney at club called Speakeasy in London, late Sixties.

Late at night, out he comes from the dining area apparently to run to the Men's room. My band and I waited and on his way back to his seat, I walked right up to him.....realize, I am a musician and huge, huge Beatles fan. So it's a major moment for me.

"Uh...excuse me Paul, we're from the States, and we're going to be recording over here and we're huge fans could we ask a couple of questions?"

Huge smile, leans back against a wall and say "Great sure, yeah what part of the States?" and on it went. He was just super nice.

-------

As time went on and we began recording on Abbey Road, we ended up meeting the rest of them, and to a person they were as down to earth as you could imagine. You had groups like Pink Floyd walking around the studio like they were hot stuff, while all 4 Beatles would walk down the hall and nod to you as you went by.


Surreal.. thrill of a lifetime!
