I actually met Paul at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

“to prevent any electrical infetterence,”

There's our next marquee quote, is what I'm thinking.

But seriously, folks.  What an....interesting story.  I'm really not sure what to make of that.  Without some context (what was his day like before that, etc), it's kind of a head-scratcher.

Isn't there a moment in That Moment when you can sort of see Paul snort some coke? Think it's during the filming of the diner scene (which was a stressful reshoot, right?)
I don't recall that but he's 100% can be seen rolling joints in the editing room with Fiona Apple.

I'm surprised he didn't also snort the fake cocaine on Magnolia.

I'm glad he seems to have stopped. I love The Hateful 8, but I wonder what a Tarantino cocaine free would have changed for his cinema.
I'm so many people.

His films probably wouldn't have been so bloates and indulgent. I think Hateful 8 is his best film since Kill Bill Vol. 1.

I have received PM's regarding my story, and I just want people to know that it did in fact happen. I am as saddened by this as anyone else, but we have to be strong and support eachother during these tough times. We survived the triggering opinions thread and we can survive this too.

Take care, #prayforpaul <3

Some of us must remember this:

Quote
Although Anderson is one of the most autobiographical filmmakers of his generation, drawing heavily on his childhood in the San Fernando Valley, most stories about him offer some variation on "very little is known about his early years" or "little is known about Paul's childhood." He has stopped talking to most of his friends from those years, and none of them can say whether he just moved on naturally or broke with his past for some secret reason.

"When he did Magnolia," Stevens says, "I sent word through someone who worked with him to tell Paul it would be great if he could come back for a visit. I'd love to see him. And the answer came: 'Paul doesn't go back.'"

'The Secret History of Paul Thomas Anderson' - Esquire

I've heard a LOT of jokes being made in film circles about him being addicted cocaine etc and going to rehab. Never got a source on that.

I’m definitely sure he went to rehab after Ted Demme died. I’m
Also sure Tarantino also did some rehab after Jackie Brown.
