Celebrity Spotting # 53

I admit to being a bit starstruck. Running into celebrities is a bit of a kick for me. Last night after attending a broadway show with my wife, we ran into Jeff Ross having dinner in an open restaurant. That got me thinking that recording my run-ins could be fun. Off the top of my head, these are the celebrities I've encountered*:

* = got autograph

Bruce Springsteen
Brad Pitt (asked me for directions to Waldorf)
Angelina Jolie
Renee Zellwegger* (I was an extra in A Price Above Rubies)
Barbara Hershey
David Schwimmer* (pale in person)
Lenny Clarke
Dave Attell (bumped into him twice, small city)
Al Pacino*
Selma Blair
Sara Michell Gellar
Freddy Prinze, Jr.
Derek Jeter
Tiki Barber
Colm Meaney
Paul Sorvino (gigantic human being)
Judge Judy
Max Weinberg
Savion Glover
Seal (refused me an autograph)
Michael Rappaport
Michael Stipe (tiny little munchkin)
Charles Schumer
Kelly Osborne
Matthew St. Patrick
Matt Lauer
Liam Neeson
Jean Claude
Mr. G.
Grete Waitz
Rosie O'Donnell
Chris Farley
David Spade
Cindy Adams
Tommy Lasorda*
Tate Donovan
Christopher Walken* (scary in person)
Ben Stiller* (just as manic in real life)
Christine Taylor
Brian McKnight (his entourage shoved me out of the way)
Steven Weber (also twice, teeny-tiny city)
Fisher Stevens (twice as well, microscopic city)
Patrice O'Neal
George Steinbrenner
Dennis Farina
Heidi Klum (she's about 9 feet tall)

Which makes the Jeff Ross bump-in # 53 and counting...
