Pat Healy from Magnolia is my friend's brother.  I've met him twice.

Oh yeah? Well I saw Pat Healy's agent walk out of McDonalds and spit on the sidewalk.

Why'd you spit on the sidewalk?

I don't know what's worst, walking out of a McDonalds or being Pat Healy's agent. I'd say walking out of McDonalds is worst, because as we all know, Pat Healy is one of the finest actors of his generation.

I used to work for Universal Studios Orlando during the grand Opening of Islands of Adventure.  I was a roller coaster operator for the Hulk.  A week before we opened, we had a celebrity day where Universal Invited a ton of celebrities to go to the park.  It was mixed in with other guests though.  I worked from open to close that day and My job was "celebrity escort."  Just chat with them for a minute and strap them in the coaster.
The list could go on for quite some time, but here are a few highlights:

Michael Douglas
Steven Speilberg (who is creative director for the park.  Met him more than once)
Ron Howard
Eddie Murphy
Jenna Elfman (coolest celebrity I have met)
Patrick Swayze (I was his temporary body guard)
Whitney Houston
Brittney Spears (I am so not lying.  Strapped her in myself.)
All the boy bands
Courtney Cox

The list could go on.  One small story:  Steven Spielberg is deathly afriad of heights, so he didn't ride any of the roller coasters.  But, since the Jurassic Park area is his baby, he had to ride everything.  As you know the River ride has an 85 foot drop at the end.  He rides the ride until right before the drop, stops the ride and climbs down a flight of stairs.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I met Marie-Josée Croze (the winner of this year's Best Actress in Cannes) last year at a restaurant in Toronto. She went outside to smoke, so I went too. I asked her for a light pretending I didn't know her, and said shit like : "C'est charmant comme resto" (This is a nice restaurant) and she laughed a little saying : Oui, en effet (Indeed).

Met Tom Hanks too, though didn't talk to him. Bruce Willis also shot a scene of The Jackal right at the bottom of a building I was visiting a friend in.

I forgot to mention from my April post that I met Shari Lewis when I very young and Jerry Lawler I almost accidentally knocked down in an escalator incident.  Since April, I've met Cuba Gooding Jr and Harvey Fierstein in NYC.

did he sexually harass you?  and if so, do you feel better now that he's apologized for doing so?
