Some of the pics of suspects are famous people, mainly actors, I think.

So what famous celebrity have you interviewed?

I've interviewed Veronica Lake, Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart, in recent memory...

lol, I used to work in a part of Toronto that got a lot of celebrity traffic, especialy during the International Film Festival.

I've made lunch for Rhea Perlman, Judith Light, Meredith Baxter-Birney -and one time, I knocked over Anthony Hopkins. Like fully, knocked him over as he was trying to get out of a limo.

As I write this, I'm kinda wondering if asking "Hey Buddy, sorry about that. You OK?" really counts as a bona fide interview.

That's SIR Anthony Hopkins to you, buster. You should have treated him to some fava beans and a nice chianti.

And speaking of stars from Who's the Boss, Alyssa Milano has been my suspect a few times. Alas, not my client, so I haven't had the opportunity to fall in love with her.

In Real LIfe I interview famous folks in the animation industry. Disney directors, classic voice actors, Nickelodeon show creators, etc. I learned that it's somewhat accetpable to be a fanboy geek if a magazine hired you first.

I once offered the guy that walks behind golfers carrying their current standings on the PGA Tournament $20 to let me carry the one that followed Tiger Woods. I didn't get to talk to Tiger but I did get laughed at by the sign guy!

Patrick Duffy used to bathe me and put me to bed. He babysat me when he stayed with his uncle during the summer months.

I was also acquaintances with Jesse Ventura, Dutch Savage, Jimmy Snuka, and Buddy Rose (to name a few) when they used to wrestle in Oregon/Washington. I worked at one of the arenas they wrestled in.

I once got stuck in a doorway with Hugh Laurie. But sadly only for a brief moment.

I got drunk with Drew Barrymore once backstage at Lolapalooza (Before she got clean and wrote off all mind-altering substances). Does that count?

She is beautiful and awesome! One of those stars that actually looks better in person than on TV.

Josh Bidwell (Punter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Troy Polamalu (Strong Safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers) both graduated from my little tiny 3A high school in Winston, OR. Troy is my best friend’s cousin! We used to play tag and wiffle ball in their backyard . Josh and I were in Leadership class together, he was our student body president. You couldn’t meet two nicer guys in the world!!!
Also, before my husband went into teaching he worked at the Excalibur here in Vegas and he cashed out Flavor Flaaaave - gold teeth, clock and all…also super nice guy. One more, my son got to jump rope with Floyd Mayweather. He came to the elementary school where I teach for an assembly.

My stepdad met Vincent Price at a book reading once, (obviously before he died) I guess it doesnt really count, since i myself didnt meet him, but he said he was a really gentleman, im not sure but i think the book reading was of Edgar Allan Poe's work, which fits, i dont remember the full story, i was a tyke when that happened.
