They're still people, after all
There seems to be a lot of dirt covering the golden glamour of Hollywood right now. Actors are accusing studio executives and agents of touching them inappropriately, actors are being accused of committing criminal acts against fans, and adults are saying that they were attacked by well-known figures when they were just children.
It can really tarnish your view of the rich and famous.
However, not everyone who’s worked in La La Land leads a double life. Twitter user @BAKKOOON asked his internet friends, “If anyone has any nice allegations against a celebrity that would be great too. Does a famous actor give good Christmas presents? Does [a] lady comedian always smoke people out?”
He received tons of stories about all of the good people still in Hollywood.
I worked on a movie with Brad Pitt back in the late 1980s. He’s incredibly funny, talented, and kind. He’s also a really good card player, and he taught me how to play poker. He taught me so well that I was finally able to beat him. (@MCrisuolo1)
On the night of the San Bernardino attack, I ran into Bill Nye the Science Guy on a midnight subway train, and he seemed kind of hammered.
But lectured me and two other dudes about how my must still look to the stars and be optimistic, “or else everything sucks.” (@jenniferemorrow)
Salma Heyak danced with my little sister at a party once, as did Shannon Doherty, and Spice Girl Mel C played Connect 4 with her.
Lucy Liu was so incredibly kind and lovely when we worked together when I was nice that she became one of my first big crushes. (@MaraWilson)
(In case you forgot, Mara Wilson is the actress who played Matilda in Matilda and the youngest sibling in Mrs. Doubtfire)
