On April 29, 1999, I was having drinks with friends at a restaurant in Minneapolis when out of the corner of my eye I noticed Leelee Sobieski walk by the restaurant. Why do I remember what date it was? I'm weird like that. Also it was the day the Blair Witch project opened and there were tons of people in Uptown.
|Fun fact: Leelee and I share a birthday. June 10, 1983.|
Anyway, we don't get a lot of celebs in these parts and I was so curious about why the heck she was in town (filming something? here for the premier of Eyes Wide Shut?) that I bolted out of my chair, ran out of the restaurant and down the sidewalk after her. When I got close, I stopped running and started walking. You know, to be normal. Then I purposely bumped my shoulder into her shoulder, looked at her confused like a best friend who hasn't seen another best friend in years, and asked:
"Leelee? What are you doing in town?"
AND THEN????? Did she say, "Please, leave me alone." and rush off at a fastish walk, locking eyes with any good samaritans that might help her out of a potentially dangerous/stalker situation?
She was very gracious and talked to me for a little bit. Her friends were so irritated though.
April 29, 1999... I was on spring break... from my sophomore year of high school... because I was sixteen
When you run into a celebrity again in the future, be sure to show them your Croc keychain. I'm sure that will cement a great friendship.
LeeLee & KadyKady or KDKD or KFCKFC okay I can't stop...who names their kid LeeLee?
Are you sure your shoulders bumped? Did you have to jump to make that happen?
haha Kim, yes she is super tall and maybe it was more: MY shoulder HER elbow
dbs: I think she's French?
Not French. Born in NYC...I just googled her because I had no idea who you were talking about!! Celebrities are so safe around me.
hellllo, I do not know why you do not have more followers via google friends, and thus I have awarded you the coveted Liebster Award (ha!). I hope you'll share your favorite little blogs with us :)
