The other night at dinner, my family started talking about meeting celebrities; my cousin was just on a morning talk show and met a few politicians and appeared on TV!
Of course, this brought up my memories of being shunned by Michael C Hall in the Dallas airport in December of 2010.
I had to explain, again, how I almost ran into Michael C Hall, and he waved me off and turned his head, not even granting me a smile, a hello, nothing.
Yes. I’m still bitter.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand that the man just went through a divorce, battled cancer, and was very possibly running to catch his flight.
But he could have at least waved “Hi.” I mean, we were literally 6 inches from each other when I met his eyes and gasped “Mr. Hall!”
Star struck, much?
Yeah, I can’t help it.
Anyway, I debated on cancelling Showtime because I was pretty upset with his lack of courtesy – I mean, I watched every episode of Six Feet Under – even when it started to totally suck and make no sense at all – to support him as an actor.
The least he could do for a fan is smile.
I’ve met other celebrities before. None as cool, or handsome in a serial-killer psychopath sort of way, but celebrities all the same.
When I was 5 or 6, my mom took me to see my dad while he was in the Army and seated next to us was a blonde chick dressed like a witch.
I don’t remember a lot of my childhood, but I sort of remember her – well, I remember a black hat and red plastic fingernails – she was super nice and actually took her fake fingernails off (they were cheapo plastic nails that wrapped around your fingertips) and gave them to me.
Kelli Maroney was an actress in the movie Night of the Comet, one of my favorite cheesy 80’s movies.
Super nice, right?
Then in 2007, I met Joey D from VH1’s The Pick Up Artist while I was on vacation with my girlfriends in Chicago.
Maybe he doesn’t really count as a celebrity, but at the time, I watched the show and I recognized him immediately. The Pick Up Artist guys were actually holding a convention in the Saks Hotel, where we were staying. He was a total dork, but really nice and sweet.
Except he kind of got a little grabby during the picture taking…
And don’t even get me started on the excitement of receiving a DM from John Cusack on Twitter in 2009. Unfortunately, it’s been erased (damn Twitter glitches!!), but I still remember exactly what it said. LOL
I tweeted something about John Cusack being the Gregory Peck of our time and he DM’d me “That’s quite the compliment. Thank you!”
And I cried a little.
I still get mad when I am looking at my DMs and remember that I once had a message from John Cusack in there.
Have you ever met a celebrity? Were they nice, like Kelli Maroney was to me, or totally rude like Michael C Hall?
