Today on the way home from pre-school pickup, I passed a man driving a black Suburban. You’ll never guess who it was: Clint Eastwood. Yep, that’s who I thought I saw until I did a double take. My mind was playing tricks on me again ( seems to happen a lot here lately). It was just some old gentleman who resembled Mr. Eastwood, pulling out of a neighborhood.
As if Clint would purchase a house in this way-out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere place. Imagine…Dirty Harry, the outlaw Josey Wales himself, living in Redneckville, sitting in a carpool line. I got a good laugh at that when I thought about it.
A few months back, I thought I had run into Kurt Russel too at the corner store. I actually went back into the store and starred at the man…like really, really close up ( I didn’t have my glasses on). It wasn’t him and I noticed that once he turned to leave, his gut edged it’s way off the counter. Yuck! Not the Kurt Russel I had remembered from the movies. No, this was just a local guy frequenting his corner store for beer. I excused myself for having invaded his personal space, but that I had thought he was someone else. I suddenly felt very silly, turned around, and left quickly.
All of this leads me to a question: what movie star/stars have you seen or thought you saw in your hometown or while on vacation?
