Paul Newman, our house.


It was for sale. I was about 16, this was mid 80s. He didn't have an appointment, just knocked on the door. My older brother showed him around.


He didn't buy.


This was Westport Connecticut

I was working at a Five Star Hotel(The Breakers) back in the late 80's and was down on the beach. My job was maintaining the cabanas. This story would not be weird except I saw this guy leaving one of the 5 bathroom stalls that they had down on the beach in a private concrete block structure of a building. Hello Tom Selleck!!! LOL. Btw, he seemed very tall from what I remember.

Not sure if it is really that weird but I saw Woody Harrelson running into the night club called Yucatan in Houston, TX where I worked as a valet back in 1991.
He seemed to be rushing in with a group that looked like a band so I was like "WTH?", didn't know he actually jammed with a band and his band was playing there that night. I think it was like a jazz band.
He seemed quite friendly with people around him. I didn't talk to him, just watched for a little while.

I was getting out of an elevator in a bldg in Century City in the 90's, and right as the doors opened a young kid came running in, and since I was swinging my briefcase, I almost hit the kid in the head. It was Clint Eastwood's grandson, and Clint was waiting to get in the elevator too, and saw the whole thing. I swear he gave me "the eye". Y'know the look right before he kills somebody.

I also saw Sly Stallone and George Clooney in those same elevators. Not on the same day of course.

Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd in a bowling alley. They were visiting his brother who lived in the same town we did. Quite the big deal for a small Illinois town in the 50's. Their picture was taken with my cousin who owned the business at the time. It hung there until the building was sold in the 90's. He died soon after after that visit.

Years ago, several friends and I were in Nashville for a concert in which Seether was the opening act..... We got a great deal on a VERY nice hotel and arrived the night before the show..... The morning of the show, one of my friends and I got up, grabbed some coffee and hopped on the down elevator to go outside for a smoke, both still wearing major bedhead.

Who was on that elevator but Sean Morgan..... We locked eyes and I recognized him instantly and he knew I did, so then kept his eyes averted. My friend had no idea until I told her once we all got off the elevator and went our separate ways.....

Geez, was he that offended by your bedhead? lol When I had my hotel celebrity encounter, I had just stepped out of my room into the hallway and he was walking by with his son. We didn't make eye contact, otherwise I probably would've at least said hi or something since I'm a fan, but I really didn't think that was the appropriate time to speak to him anyway. I did get a chance to speak to him briefly later on though.
