Tonight’s post was inspired by my friend Kate’s story about how she almost met Tom Cruise!
Growing up, I watched a lot of TV and LOVED going to the movies so to meet (or almost meet) any famous person was a giant thrill (and to be honest, probably still is today). So I love stories about how regular schmoes like me or any friend of mine meet movie stars.
So, in honor of Kate’s story, I thought I’d share a few stories of my own about how I met or almost met a few famous people.
1. Clint Eastwood – When I was about 14 I volunteered at a charity fashion show that his daughter was in. I was leaning against the back wall watching the show when I realized that Clint was standing right next me. He was so tall! I just froze. I didn’t say anything and didn’t move until about 10 minutes later when he walked away. Don’t worry, it gets better.
