Q & A

Okay...One of my convo’s with a girl-pearl here. Prompts me to ask this question.

I’m from a very rural part of Montana. I’m wondering if you came face to face with some movie star/actor/singer person would you be star-struck?

    • Okay...I shouldn’t type when I’m tired. I am just implying the convo prompted my question.

      ?

    • I probably wouldn’t even recognize a moviestar/actor or whatever.  That sort of thing takes up such a tiny little portion of my mental being that I’m sure I could pass half a dozen stars on the street and have no clue who they were.  I’d just say “Hihowareya” same as I would to anyone else.

    • I am with Tulip - although a funny story when skiing in MT years ago we went out for dinner and it well known that Andi McDowell lived in the town - My husband as we are leaving says out loud she is the worst actress and she is standing waiting to come in to eat dinner.

    • I live in New York and have run into many stars. Only encountering Eli Wallach and Cicely Tyson caused me to be star struck. Other than that, I speak to them like normal people, never ask for autographs, just tell them what I like about their work. They‘re still ordinary people, only the media makes them out to be something they‘re not.

    • I am pretty sure there are a good dozen or more that the simple sight of them would make me behave like an idiot.

      Lenny Kravitz? I’m not even sure I could muster hi.

      Even my ‘ole guy from the local news program 300 miles away. I could hardly speak on the phone to him. A voice I’d heard my whole life...speaking directly in my ear. I was a dork. I think I talked to him about a book I’d written for children~they were featuring it on a little program they had. A dork..me.

      And with exception to a few, it isn’t that I’d think they are just, amazing-king-like people. They just wouldn’t be inside that illuminated box where they belong. I’d be weirded-out. I would want to be normal...but I’d be incapable.

    • Nope I’m a geek right along with you!  I guess it just depends on who I run into. I am in love with Sean Connary he is the sexiest 80+ year old man that I would ever consider sexy lol...I can’t think of the guys name but the guy in Dear John is absolutely beautiful and I could see myself being speechless if I saw him...what can I say I guess I am a sucker for beautiful men who are starsestatic

    • Several years ago while attending a trade show in Las Vegas, I was having some appetizers and cocktails with some friends from the show and had been meeting a lot of new people.  I sat next to, shared pizza cocktails and conversation with Rachel Ray and didn’t even realize who she was until she started talking about finishing a shoot.
      I will say who would leave me star stuck is Alex McLoughlin he was on a show called Moonlight a few years ago and played Mick St. John.  Wow- I still watch the repeats.

    • I think actors appreciate people who treat them “eye to eye” not on the pedestals we tend to place them on. I remember when I bumped into Jane Curtin a couple of years after she was no longer doing SNL. I told her I missed seeing her on tv, and she smiled and said I miss being on tv (in other words I miss that paycheck!). I have a feeling I gave her a boost when I said, onward and upward, spread your wings and fly, never know where you’ll wind up.

      They are no different than you or I, they put on their clothes the same way we do (they may not shop at the same stores we do), and they do the same ‘human things’ we do. I would love to meet Wesley Snipes to see if ‘Wesley is still Nestle’ LOL estatic

    • See they aren’t on a pedestal in my eye either. I’m sure this is why so many go bonkers, because man just was not intended to be worshiped. If I saw them they would just be out of place. Because any chance of me going where any of them would be is nil.

      But, Denzel, Wesley Snipes, Tom Hanks?  To hear Clint Eastwood’s voice in close proximity. Yes, I’d be struck. There are a zillion people. I don’t consider Tom Hanks to be handsome but my heart would skip if he was in my hometown and I bumped into him. And, honestly this isn’t something I think about in constant! It was just a thought. ;)

      I know they are regular people, just not my regulars.

      And well, what do I know anyway? I have never seen a celeb...I probably would behave quite mature and intelligent! Who knows?!

    • Well, I’ll confess Mindy’s conversation was with me.  No prob, Min.  I don’t mind. I have had a celebrity clientele since I worked on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills @ the age of 18.

      My very first client was Bo Derrick and I did a manicure on her.  She had lovely pink nails I remember.... anyway, I was asked to go to several celebrities homes to do treatments for them, I mean BIG celebrities and I guess I wasn’t star struck because I was put into a situation where I 1) had to be professional and 2)they invited me into their personal space so I didn’t dare act star struck.

      Of course, when I went home, I told my parents all about it but no, I didn’t get giddy or anything like that around them. (the celebs)

      I still deal a lot with high profile clients/celebs today and I still have to remain the same: treat them like they are you and me!  I never go there with them by asking for autographs, etc. If they offer, then of course, I take.estatic

      Some celebrities are horrible to work with, nightmares!  But others are perfectly normal like you and me! I prefer the nice ones! lol

      If interested, you can go to my web site and read my bio to see a partial list that I have posted.  I will be updating and adding new photos soon!

    • Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, yup Valley girl, I’m not star struck.  

      Went to school with friends who are now actors and many whose parents were big actors.  

      It was common place to see many while grocery shopping or going to the mall!

      and I grocery shopped and did banking with many celebrities besides the ones that came into the restaurant. Never asked for autographs.
