19. “I was at the Billboard Music Awards in 2013, trying to get the opportunity to see some celebs I liked. Miley Cyrus was making the rounds, signing autographs and taking pictures. Then she stopped right in front of me and said, ‘You don’t have a Sharpie, a phone, nothing? You’re just here for the memories?’ I nodded and she put out her hand for a high five. She may be a little out there, but she’s a sweet person.”

My mom would frequently make pledges to PBS, and one time when I was 4 we had to go to the local studio for something related to it. We had just parked and were walking to the building when another car pulled up, and driving it wasFred Rogers! He got out of the car and said, ‘Hi there, neighbor, how are you today? Would you like a hug?’ I ran to him and he hugged me and talked to us as we walked into the building. Mister Rogers was exactly the same in person as he was on his show.”

As she was getting ready to deplane, I couldn’t help myself and broke professionalism to tell her I thought she was wonderful and I couldn’t wait to see more from her. She grabbed my elbow, told me she thought I was wonderful, and gave me a hug. I have never been more starstruck.”

22. “I was at Sundance Film Festival, waiting for a midnight screening to start. As the theatre started to fill up, I turned around in my seat to see who was sitting behind me, and saw Robin Williams. My whole face must have lit up with happiness, because he almost laughed with joy. ‘Hey there,’ he said. ‘Hi!’ I replied happily. I turned back away, because I wanted to respect his privacy, but every once in a while, I would turn back around. ‘Hi again!’ he would exclaim, and make me giggle every time.
I wish I had told him that my childhood was better because of him. I can only hope that he read it in the joy on my face. Somehow, I think he did.”
