I'm Real Comfortable Around Celebrities



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.

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.
