Encounters With Celebrities/ Marisa Tomei

Marisa Tomei is one of my favorite actresses so my reaction to meeting her was not nonchalant because I was quite excited. I'm not one to jump up and down or hound for an autograph so I just admired her looks quietly but with glee. I've met her twice.

One time was in front of a Wild Oats supermarket in West Hollywood a few years back and then again a few years later in NYC during a MAC cosmetics party. She was just leaving and waved at me which I thought was cool since I don't know her personally. The MAC cosmetics event was a party that I sort of crashed but I didn't spend much time there because there wasn't much to do and I'm not a woman. There were some beautiful women there.... though.

Marisa looked fit as a fiddle when I first saw her in West Hollywood and I just looked at her but she was funny about it because she told me to keep quiet about seeing her....uh... you know how hot-blooded these Italian women are. She didn't want any attention drawn to herself so I just respected her wishes because that's the cool guy that I am. My favorite film of hers is My Cousin Vinnie because it's the film that got her an Oscar. She's gone on to do numerous roles and is currently working on a movie called The Ides Of March.
