So, we went to Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark last weekend, the Sunday matinee.
We're standing in line in Times Square and Steve Wilcos comes up to Mrs. Smirk and asks her if this is the line to buy tickets or for people who already have tickets.
I couldn't place him at first and said to him, "Hey, you're Steve whats-his-face..." He looked down at me, the full-effect of his towering baldness coming into focus, whilst I carefully analyzed the possibly insulting nature of what I'd just said.
He then turned his attention back to Mrs. Smirk who obliviously gave him the information he seeked, and then he walked off texting.
"Is this what a man does? Walk up to another man's lady in the street and ask what the line is for? You're not a man, you're nothing. You're not even fit to lick my boot. Why,if there weren't all these other people around I'd beat your face right here and now. Now, get out of my sight! No Spiderman for you!"
Did he get his own show, i think I remember something about that. Is it still on? Is Jerry still on?
I had my own "celebrity" sighting last night
Went and saw "Friends with Benefits" last night. When we bought our tickets the ticket girl was talking to one of her co-workers saying "if you act like that when famous people come in, they wont come here anymore"
So I asked her who was here, and she said it was one of the guys from Mariana's Trench.
Now, if you were up on your top 40 Canadian pop crap music, you would know that's pretty cool. For instance, I texted one of my nieces and her reply was "OMG Srsly!!!"
I surveyed the scene and saw a blue haired boy, so I asked my niece if one of them had blue hair, and her reply was "OMG Yes JOSH Kidnap him for me"
I went and bought some tea, then we made our way down to the theatre, and upon entering saw the blue haired one sitting in the front row. "What do I do....." I thought to myself "around such a talented and acclaimed musician" So, I went up to him, asked if he was Josh, and he frowned at me and said very grumpily, yes... I apologized for interrupting his date but asked if I could have a picture to send to my niece, and again he acted all sullen and emo but said yes, so I took our picture, and then wished them a happy date. Although Josh looked pissed off over it all, the chick looked even more pissed off.
Yay for me pissing off celebrities!
I swear I saw Al Pacino about 4 years ago touristing around Ecuador.
We were with a few friends in a small restaurant in some rural Andes town, famous for their pork dishes. We were chatting, and I saw two huge SUVs park outside, a family with a couple tourists came out. Don't know why they caught my attention, but I kept looking at them.
Then this man sits on the other table right across of me, none of my friends could see him. He was wearing a Panama hat and it was kind of covering part of his face, I knew I had seen him somewhere...
Then I just knew, he was Al Pacino, right in front of me! I could not believe my eyes.
He saw my star struck face, and smiled. I could not speak for a few minutes, that's how stricken I was. He is one of my all time favorite actors after all. I could only muster "I think Al Pacino was in that restaurant" to my friends, after we were out of there, and walking towards our car.
