A Brief Moment of Fanboyism



You can keep your snooty mega-stars and your blank-eyed hotties. AT SXSW I got to shake hands with Bill Paxton and drink a beer with Paul Rudd. Generally I just throw an interested glance towards celebs and then just keep walking, but when you're face-to-face with someone whose work you've admired since you were a kid, well, that's a different story. I only wish I didn't look like a stoned moron in both of these shots. (Thanks to Erik Childress for taking these photos.)

You've admired Paul Rudd since you were a kid?!? That's incredibly impossible!!! :P

Weinberg said...

Yes, very good point. It's Paxton I've been a mega-fan of since Weird Science and Aliens.

I believe the first time Rudd made me chuckle was in Clueless, and I definitely wasn't a "kid" at that point.

Paul Rudd!! You lucky SOB.

I should probably be embarrassed by my deep love for Bill... I just wish that he'd do more! Still, whenever I'm home sick, I'll watch Twister (because Helen is another love of mine) over and over again - my poor dvd player probably hates me by now.
