I had a fun discussion with Mark from ‘Marked Movies’ http://mrmarakai.wordpress.com/ regarding stars we knew or have been in close physical proximity.
I have touched the suit jacket of Gary Sinise at the Memorial Day show on the lawn of the Capital Building. He was short and thin but had a big voice applauding the wounded warriors and the efforts of U.S. soldiers. He and fellow actor Joe Mantegna pay tribute annually on the lawn of the Capital Building. It’s quite a show.
Another time I saw Ed Harris in Chicago–only two rows away from him at the Gene Siskel Film Center. He was the guest speaker at an informal Q & A session after we finished viewing his film, Pollock. He was short and thin, but his voice was mesmerizing and he was quite interesting to listen to.
Being a fan and only feet away from a star was a giddy experience. Still, my experiences pale in comparison to Mark who has held conversations with Scottish actor Robert Carlyle!
