She is, most-likely, living w/ a TBI and not able to "control" a lot of her emotional reactions. This is common after such a head injury/trauma that she experienced.

It was GE Smith, the band leader of the Saturday Night Live band for many years. We were talking about music, and it turns out I saw him play live with Bob Dylan back when I was in college, though I didn't know who he was at the time. He was a real nice guy, and he probably doesn't get recognized a lot, so he is pretty down to earth. His most recent gig was playing guitar for Roger Waters on The Wall tour. Before I left, I got a picture with him, and he told me he was going to be playing a night in July at the local live music bar, and that I should stop on by.
I remember him from SNL and MOSTLY from a marriage to my favorite, r.i.p. Gilda Radner

Met Justin Timberlake and Brittany Spears years back when they were dating.
Worked at a ranch in Colorado and they shut down ranch for a sleigh ride at New Years.

She was quiet and pleasant.
He was talkative and a gentleman.

If Bill Clinton is or was a celebrity, met him and shook his hand during his second term of Presidency.

Scottie Pippen back when the Bulls were unstoppable.....
He's way cuter in person, lol

He was genuinely sweet, & even a little shy

Randy Brown (Bulls), Stephen Marbury,
M C Hammer (actually had a conversation w/ him, lol)
All were cool....

Gosh it's been awhile....
But I am going back to doing tv work so I'm sure I'll have some more soon enough

Well, I posted my personal experiences last year, but since the thread is still alive, I'll post the experiences of my friends. One of my friends was the ASL interpreter at an event where Bill Clinton was keynote speaker (after his presidency). He shook her hand & she said he was VERY charismatic...and she's not easily impressed.

Another friend rode in an elevator in Vegas with Cher & her son with Gregg Allman...this was when the son (can't remember his name) was little. She said Cher was gorgeous but aloof & Cher's son was a cute, friendly little kid.

I can understand someone not wanting to talk to strangers on a lonely beach with no one else around I guess. Especially when you are a celebrity. Also, she was looking pretty pregnant, so no telling what those hormones are doing.

Two weeks ago I saw Jimmy Fallon double dating with Tommy Mottola at dinner. Before Jimmy got there, Tommy and his wife (or girlfriend?) were sitting there. What drew my eyes to his table was that it was odd seeing someone wearing a baseball cap in a nice restaurant. Almost as if he wanted people staring at him. I knew I recognized him but couldn't figure it out at first. Then Jimmy and his wife came in at sat down. Jimmy caught my eye and he gave me a big smile. This is the kind of place where you leave the celebrities alone, but someone actually asked Jimmy to take a selfie with him, and he said "lets do it". That must have shocked the manager, and I'm not sure that person will be getting reservations again any time soon, but I thought it was really nice of Jimmy to do that when he is out to dinner.
Just a follow up, I ran into Scarlett again about 2 weeks ago in a local take out restaurant. She was wearing sunglasses and a hat, obviously trying not to be noticed. She was behind me on line with 2 of her girlfriends. One of them asked me about something I ordered, but Scarlett just looked straight ahead, stone faced, with no interest in joining in our brief conversation or acknowledging my presence at all. I still wouldn't classify her as "rude" though. I wouldn't put her in the "nice" category either. She clearly doesn't want to be bothered, and I'm not the type of person to bother someone that doesn't want to talk, so I guess I will never know which category she falls under.
