John Goodman found out the hard way that if you want to fan-out over one of your favorite celebrities, don’t interrupt their conversations. He’s dissing on the treatment Kristin Wiig gave him when he tried to say hello, because she left him stone cold!
Celebrities, they’re just like us when it comes to freaking out over seeing their favorite stars! John Goodman, 63, has revealed an incredibly awkward encounter he had with Ghostbusters star Kristen Wiig, 42, where he wanted to meet her so badly and she shot him down hard! Now the former Roseanne star is dissing that the episode was so awful that he’ll never speak to her again!
John revealed the crazy story on the Howard Stern Show March 8, that he just loved Kristen and thought she was such a brilliant player on Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately during his 13 times appearing as host of the comedy sketch show he never got to meet her. He finally got the chance when they attended the same party, but then it all went horribly awry.
“She was talking to somebody else, and I was just – I think she’s so great, and the social barriers broke down and I interrupted the conversation. And I would just hate for somebody to do that to me. And she goes, ‘Yeah, I’ll talk to you in a minute.”’ OUCH! That’s a pretty serious snub if we’ve ever heard one!
John made the sound of a bomb dropping then continued, “It was like the Atom. I shrunk down to Atom size…I really like her, and it was embarrassing, so I’ll never speak to her again.” Poor John! Who could treat such an iconic actor like that? Even if he was interrupting, he was doing it because he wanted to meet her so badly. Now he’s too ashamed to ever try again.
Near the end of the interview, Howard pleaded with Kristen to give John another chance to meet her, just in case she was listening. We hope word gets back to the Bridesmaids star as we’re sure that given the chance, she and John would become fast, funny friends.
HollywoodLifers, have you ever fanned-out at a celebrity you’ve encountered in person?
