I saw Joel Schumacher in a bookstore and introduced myself.  I told him I enjoyed "Car Wash" and "Falling Down," and he was very nice and appreciative.  Extremely cool guy.


I would have had him autograph my copy of D.C. Cab, starring Mr. T.


i sat next to MR T at a bulls game. he's the shit -- whoever can pull off wearing 20 pounds of gold chains around their neck, is the man in my book.

Serious?

I met Bono once.

And Donovan lives fairly locally.

I was at the London Film Festival with my girlfriend and we had tickets to see Punch-Drunk Love at an afternoon showing. We were annoyed because the main show, which PTA was going to be at and introduce the film, was completely sold out. But we figured we'd try and queue on the night for any returned tickets.
So anyway we get outside the cinema about three hours before the film starts and start waiting and waiting (we actually are so early we're in front of folks queuing for returned tickets for the movie show BEFORE PDL!)
Eventually the manager takes pity on us as says some tickets have been returned so we head inside and my girlfriend pays (she's nice like that). While I'm loitering about the counter I notice two PDL postcard sitting next to some other free booklets and stuff. Nice memento, I think, and pick them up.
It's only when we get outside and read the postcard do I see the words: "Revolution Pictures would like to invite you to a pre-screening champagne reception for Punch-Drunk Love" SCORE!
So we head over to this ridiculously expensive hotel (me in scabby jeans and t-shirt, her in hooded top, combats and carrying a plastic shopping bag) and flash the invites and actually get in!!
Champagne is served and the pair of us drink it much to fast while sitting shaking with joy at what is actually happening!
Then Paul walks in and gives hugs to Emily Watson, her husband (I think) and then Daniel Lupi and his family.
I didn't speak to him, even though he was standing about 10 feet from me, cos he was surrounded by filmy types and I was quite frankly too stunned by our good luck to even attempt a coherent sentence.
We sat and just took in the occasion, hearing occasional snippets of his conversations then finished our drinks and made a move to get to the movie.
To top it all off, PTA came on stage, introduced the film then returned to his seat - which happened to be directly across the aisle from me!
An amazing end to perhaps one of the finest cinema outtings I have ever had.

That PTA story was fucking great!
I, unlike the earlier post, would sell my mother into prostitution to meet Paul.
I bumped into the lead singer of Semisonic ("Closing Time")....actually backed up into him while waiting for my luggage in Philly Int'l...turned around, said sorry, then did a double take. Very cool guy, very amicable....told him I liked his music, he appreciated the comment... :wink:

Was any Jell-O involved?


Forgot to mention I met Kids in the Hall.  Mark McKinney kind of looked like Matthew Perry.

I met Helena Bonham Carter:



...when she purchased some books from me at a Chicago Barnes & Noble.  Right around the time Fight Club came out, I think.

Would you believe she's even hotter in person than above?

I don't know who I met that was famous at the time.. more like washed up, I'd say. Mr. T in Toronto. Burt Young (Rocky's brother in "Rocky" and Curly in "Chinatown") in New York - right on the street. But other 'famous' people I met were Sha Na Na, Little Eva, Mark Breslin, Mike MacDonald, and that's about it really.
