The only one I'd have would be a photo of me and Will Smith and Eva Mendes during Hitch filming at Ellis Island. Eva Mendes looks nice in a wetsuit.

I don't have the picture though, I think it was taken with a film camera, so I really have no idea where it is. Oh well.

Been in the business for almost 21 years. Work as transportation coordinator or captain and even drive a honeywagon occasionally but I like the wardrobe trailer best for the hours without some of the headaches. Are you in the business also? Maybe we've worked together before? I just started a pilot for HBO on Friday. Work is slow though. I've also worked at the Apple Store for a year or so part time and worked on a couple movies with Justin Long that does the Apple/PC commercials but I didn't have a chance to get a picture with him.

Here are a few more recent pictures.

Nice pics. Is that one with Madden on his bus? I worked in the industry for a few years here in Wilmington, so if you've ever been out here, we might have worked together. I started as an Office PA and then got into Locations. The guys in Transpo were always cool. Glad to hear you've started a show. Episodics are great if the show lasts.

I have never really met a celebrity. I have seen politicians like Prime Ministers and hockey players. A while ago I was in a food court in Kelowna and Theron Fleury sat at the table next to me, and I almost got to meet Robert De Niro.

Holy crap @ meeting Senator Obama on a plane. Was he surrounded by men in suits?

Yes, John Madden when he was working on a movie called "The Replacements" and we were on the Outback bus. PA'ing is good for getting started but locations work I'm sure is a whole lot more fun and better for paying the bills. I've never worked in Wilmington but I've been through there a number of times. I've worked on three different series. One lasting 1 year, 5 years and 7 years. Hope this one last at least five more but I prefer the big features instead. Maybe I'll run into you sometime in the future if the business ever picks up and gets busy again.

That's awesome! My mom met him once. She was walking behind him in some hotel or something last year and thought he looked familiar but couldn't put her finger on it (This was before, when he wasn't as well known. He didn't even have any security) And when they both got down to the first floor a whole bunch of people recognized him and whatnot. She talked to him and shook his hand too.

Good idea. Wax definitely doesn't count.

So which one are you in the photo, lwood1? I assume you're the guy on the very right. That, or you're Jon Ives or John Mayer, and you seem a bit too excited about the photo to be famous yourself. ;)




I'd tell her that it's impossible to create sparks from the friction of two bodies rubbing together.

"Impossible you say?"
"Uh huh."

I am famous and I was still excited! Come on, how many people do you know that have talked with and had their picture with him? :)

The story is that we both grew up in the same podunk Idaho town -- although many years apart. I met him while I stationed at RAF Mildenhall, UK. He asked me where I was from and when I told him his jaw dropped. We spent about 10 minutes talking about our hometown.

I don't have any pictures involving me, but I can share a great story involving someone else.

One of my friends played in the same orchestra as I did, and this happened a few years after I was no longer playing there. Tom Cruise and Oprah (I think it was) were emceeing the Nobel concert, and my friend was playing. During one of the breaks, my friend (who is gorgeous, and was at the time going through a divorce) asked Cruise if she could have a picture taken with him. She was in her long, elegant concert dress, and he was in a tux. It's a great shot, and in the picture they are both smiling million dollar smiles as one of his men in black in the background looks on, earpiece visible.

The best part is that she used the pic as her holiday greeting card that year, and instead of "Happy Holidays" under the pic, she wrote "All that practicing finally paid off!". :D

Lucky!! I've only been able to get close to Jared at a small concert at the Bricktown Brewery in Oklahoma City once.

Only celebs I've met are R. Lee Ermy, Steve Zhan, and some member of the Pussycat Dolls. R. Lee Ermy came to a Veteran's Day festival at Emporia, KS while I was in a WWII reenacting group and he stayed later than planned so all of the reenactor's could meet him. His pic is in physical form currently so I'll have to dig it out and scan it. Steve and the gang came to Camp Bucca, Iraq while I was deployed there in 2008. The downside of being an Intelligence Analyst is that you can't invite celebrities into your office :( I had to just poke my head out and say hi. Sadly no pictures of myself with either one of them. There were three other female actresses/singers that came along but I had no idea who they were.
