“My wife briefly dated Louis CK back in 2012. She says it seems awful to be famous. Any time they went out to eat or were in public, they were just constantly interrupted or stared at. 

He came to her birthday party at some little bowling alley in Brooklyn, though, and was pretty cool. The story that always sticks with me is that one day, he went out and bought a $150,000 watch because he felt sad.” 

DID NOT KNOW SHE WAS FAMOUS 

I'm sorry, I have no idea man.

“I slept with a woman in a soap opera a few times. I didn’t know it then but recognized her when I was at my grandmother’s, and she had her show playing.”

“I had an English teacher who went on a date with Mark Hamill just after filming Star Wars in the 70’s. She said he was a nice guy and was very humble. 

He said he was a small-time actor and had just finished a new movie he thought might be successful. They only went out once, and she never heard from him again. She saw him in Star Wars a few months later and had her mind blown.” 

HE WAS KIND AND MUSCULAR

“My friend’s aunt went on a blind date with Gerard Butler of 300(the movie, not the year). There was a big miscommunication because he was looking for a casual thing, and she’s a kindly French-Canadian woman in her fifties, but they both had a laugh about it and enjoyed supper with each other. She said he was very kind and very muscular.”

Sometimes, to mess with my dad, I’ll start singing ‘Roxanne’ or ‘Message in a Bottle.'”

“My sweet nana, who typically only has nice things to say about anyone, was once set up on a date with Chuck Norris through a friend of her cousin.

“I didn’t date but slept with Amber Heard several times in high school. She was nice, a little quiet, and liked to drink and chill, but she always said weird things like ‘I’m gonna be famous one day, wait and see!’ and we would laugh. Look who’s laughing now, I guess.

She was a private school girl who would hang out with us public schoolers on weekends. She was fun.” 

THINGS ENDED ON GOOD TERMS

“My cousin dated Steve-O for a while; apparently, he was a super nice guy, suitable to the family. She was a waitress and met him at her restaurant.

They started to get more serious, and she wanted him to quit a television show and settle down, which wouldn’t happen. So they went their separate ways on good terms.” 

IT DIDN’T WORK OUT

“My aunt was engaged to Van Morrison briefly. No interesting stories that I could remember. They were in love, but given the challenges that come with fame, his personality quirks documented in many places, and my aunt’s young age at the time (20), it didn’t work out.

I was told that he would play guitar for the family on Christmas get-togethers.”
