A re-posting of a special event in my life that happened 5 years ago today! I met Kevin Spacey!!
Thursday, May 10th I went to the stage door with the gift bag. I wanted to be up front at the barricade in order to give it to him personally. The one Security Guard saw me and asked me who I was giving it to and I told him Kevin. He explained that Kevin is unable to accept gifts that are not cleared through security first and I wasn't able to do that. However, he said he would be more than happy to take the bag backstage to the room where things are inspected. So, of course, I handed it over to security. When he came back out, I explained that it was a one-of-a-kind specially made gift and I really wanted him to have it. The Security guard admitted that he himself had already "peaked" in the bag and I needn't worry. In the meantime another security guard came out with a thumbs up that the bag had cleared.
At the Saturday (May 12th) matinee after the stage door crowd started to thin out, I approached the man and said "Can I ask a favor?" He said "Sure" without looking up from his signing. I said "Will you have your picture taken with the driving mr. spacey bear?" He got this cute little grin on his face, looked up and said "I'd be delighted." He took the bear, read his button ("I was mooned on Broadway"), laughed, posed and handed him back saying "I hope he has a safe journey home."
What A Guy!!!
That same day after dinner....we went back to the stage door to wait for Kevin. We noticed the one Security guard carry a few items to Kevin's car - I immediately saw my gift bag and got excited!!! What a slice of heaven - he apparently likes the gift as he's taking it with him!!! Joanne said that I would probably be receiving a thank you card soon!!!
Well, when Kevin came out the stage door HE WAS WEARING THE SHIRT!!! I was right there and said "That's my shirt!!" He said "Did you get me this shirt?" I said "Yes" He said "I LOVE this shirt!!!" So I asked him to pose for a picture, which he willingly did...then I asked for one of he and I, which he replied "Sure, come here..." I was able to cross the barricade to HIS side and put my arms around him as he did me!!! While Joanne took an enormously loooooooong time to take the picture and I've always greatly appreciated that!!
What a night...........
