The striking star of The Newsroom, The Daily Show, Attack of The Show and The Babymakers was very appreciative when she found out Star named her as having the best beach body. How appreciative? She said that it was cool!
One of the coolest celebrities I’ve ever met. After interviewing him for the first time I ran into him at a Food Network party and we did a bunch of shots together. When my wife went out to San Francisco he hooked her up at one of his restaurants. After I spoke to him about his line of meats he sent me enough steaks to feed an army. Of course I prepared them all with raisins.
The star tennis player serves up a winning interview with me at Men’s Fitness in 2004. See how I used a sport appropriate idiom there? Carry on.
Curtis “Booger” Armstrong
Tracking down Curtis was a challenge but it was all worth it. Revenge of The Nerds, Risky Business, Better Off Dead. The man is a legend! And, oh yeah, here’s an interview with Smash Mouth’s Steve Harwell.
It’s funny when you meet a celebrity for the first time and once they realize you work for Star how their smile turns to a shifty eyed stone face instantly. But once Rachel realized I wasn’t going to sand bag her she was great. Lugging those sand bags around can really wreak havoc on your back.
I spent a night drinking beers and talking beers with Sam Adams creator and all around badass beer lover Jim Koch for Sly Magazine. He’s worth hundreds of millions but took a Chinatown Bus from Boston to NYC just to talk.
I spoke to the sexy supermodel at least 5 times through the years for Project Runway. Fun fact: she never remembered me!
I interviewed Denis on four separate occasions for Rescue Me and he was always very cool and very funny. Here are two of them.
The man behind Goodfellas may or may not have been drunk when I spoke to him for Ramp, but he was definitely a bit crazy. I remember having to go through an elaborate phone system to reach him. Guess he was getting some threats. Anywho, he’s dead now. RIP Hendry.
Fun Fact: she’s Australian! I found out while interviewing her for Direct Access.
I spoke to Adrian a week before the final season of Entourage, a day that no one will remember. JK I really liked that show, for the first few seasons at least, and he was very cool. Check out the Print Clips on the site for a story I did on his enviro initiatives for My Ford mag.
