#Quote
1I've never been star struck before. I've been talent struck though. When I meet someone who is a creative genius or wildly talented beyond imagination I get nervous. One time I saw Alpacino in the park playing with his daughter. I wanted to go say whatup to him really bad, but I started sweating and I didn't want him to think I was weird.
