CELEBRITY SIGHTINGS THAT WERE MORE AMUSING THAN EXCITING

  1. Pauly Shore in a hotel lobby on Maui.
    He was wearing a white linen shirt and pants, like a very "I'm in Hawaii" look. I thought, "Whats up, buuuuddyy?" and smiled to myself.
  2. Kato Kaelin in a Bank of America, when I first moved to LA 20 years ago.
    He was carrying a shopping bag full of cash!

  3. Tom Hanks at a hockey game in Sacramento
    An NHL preseason exhibition hockey game at Arco Arena in '90 or '91, sitting about 5 rows behind us in fairly cheap seats, by himself in a baseball cap.

    Just kidding it's not him, but you believed me right?

  7. Jeremy Irons in Savannah
    He was getting a lifetime achievement award from scad and came to talk to my dept about the Irish castle he was restoring. I saw him from across the street and yelled "SCAR I LOVE YOU" and he made a roaring face. I then had to moderate a two hour long discussion with him and couldn't keep a straight face.

  8. DJ Pauly D from Jersey Shore on my flight from LAX to Clearwater, FL.
    Why was he going there??

  9. Rupert Everett in New York City in a seedy leather bar
    This was post My Best Friend's Wedding and The Next Best Thing but before he got all the plastic surgery. I spotted him at sketchy defunct leather bar (the Mineshaft? The Vault? I can't remember) in the meat packing district of NY. There was a demo on mummification & fire play happening. Rupert seemed mildly interested in the demo. He had no interest in me. I was more entertained by him than the demo!

  10. Carly Simon
    Stayed at the B&B I worked at in Boulder, Colorado. I made her breakfast green juices. She was really nice but it was hard not to sing all her songs to her. She gave me a pair of shoes.

  11. Giovanni Ribisi at LACMA
    I can die happy after seeing him quietly browsing the art. Saw Patricia Arquette there that day too. Did they cross paths? Do they say hi? This day still amuses me

  12. Catherine Zeta-Jones at Whole Foods
    I didn't approach her, but she was wearing this super-cute sailor type outfit: blue/white striped shirt, white Capri pants, a red bandana around her neck, and a straw fedora. Right before school picked back up in September so the white pants were completely fair game.

  13. Porn star Ron Jeremy sat behind me on the plane.

  14. Star Jones. She was being filmed striding down a quiet street in Soho. A very old money elderly woman watched it happen and then looked at me and asked, "Who was that?"

  15. Roger Daltrey after filming a movie on St. marks place. We were crossing the street at the same time. It began to rain at which point I began singing "Reign on me"

  16. Kurt Russell at O'Hare, checking the flight arrival/departure screen. Then he got on my plane! Then he filmed parts of Death Proof a block from my office! In conclusion: Kurt Russell was maybe stalking me like 9 years ago.

  17. Nick Cannon at Animal Kingdom
    Didn't realize it was him until two big body guards with the twins also passed by.
