So I'm Curious...

What is your most direct link to a celebrity?

Mine would be a tie between my sister dating Jennifer Garner's cousin in high school and a friend of mine's father being Ed Harris's cousin.


ETA:  I thought of a more direct link than even those.  Bill's Nana (who I claim with full Nana status) is friends with Jimmy Carter.  She even kicked his heiny in high school in a writing competition.

Church members at Dad's church were friends/neighbors of the Dusseldorf family: John Dusseldorf = John Denver.

I served Julie Bowen at a coffee shop and Sinbad when volunteering at our arthouse movie theater. That's the closest I've come.

Ahhh...I forgot about my John Denver connection. My ninth grade English teacher was friends growing up with "little Johnny Dusseldorf" as well. Are you referring to Mrs. Morris as well or do we have 2 separate John Denver connections? That would be so weird if so.

Seperate connection, but now that I remember, I think Mom asked the OKC church people if they knew Mrs. Morris also, and the did. It was a very small town.

My sister and I had lunch next to "Larry" from "Three's Company" in NYC.

As well you should have, Bill. And I'm sure that you and Julie were respectful of his privacy and not obnoxious in any way, shape, or form. (read: sarcasm)

This happened when he was, like, 12.
