    Confessions time .
    Has anyone ever sent a fan letter to an actor, model, sports star, etc?
    In the summer (?!!) of 1976 I sent a fan letter to the lovely Jane Seymour in Hollywood (actually c/o her British agent).
    She sent back a signed photo.
    I still like her !
    A fan for life ....

    I never did but my sister and George Harrison used to write back and forth during the Beatles' early years. After George went reclusive his mother took up the correspondence and she and my sister became good friends. They never met personally.

    That's kind of interesting and pretty unusual, no? Neat story. You should think about having the correspondence published or something. Not that I am suggesting you exploit it for financial gain. It just may be of interest to other people and fans.

    I sent a fan letter to Erica Ehm when I was 15.

    She sent me back an autographed, topless picture of herself. :rolleyes:

    Perhaps if we all send a fan letter to Senor Rubirosa he will send us a signed photograph back !
    Just a thought ...

    I sent a letter to Senor Rubirosa. He sent me a peice of white paper with the following Phrase:

    " Mr Rubi has no interest in exploring his sexuality with you, Mr. Black. Should you continue to write, we will be forced to submit your letters to the police. Thank you."

    I have also sent fan letters to Tom Welling, Jude Law and Angelina Jolie. I have yet to hear anything.

    I've sent two fan letters to Scott Bakula... got responses both times in the form of a postcard with a STAMPED signature on the back.... how cheap. Maybe now that he's not as famous, I'd have better luck??

    I once sent a fan letter to Mariah Carey. She replied with a form letter and an autographed photo. I must have been 13 at the time (and my mom swears she didn't once suspect i was a homo).

    I wrote to Danielle Steel thanking her for writing her book His Bright Light, The Nick Traina Story as it touched me deeply. It's a vivid account of her son who suffered from Bipolar Disorder until he committed suicide. She replied personally several months later. I recently sent Mamie Van Doren an e-mail telling her I loved her website (and the pics of her 75 year-old charms) and she answered me the same day (or did she?). I don't think these qualify as fan letters, or do they?

    I don't do fan letters but if I did, I'd write one to Stevie Nicks, the queen of rock.

    Some are going to laugh...I sent a letter requesting an autographed pic from the cast of "Dynasty" in like 1981, and I got one back and still have it!I along with a couple of friends in Junior High would sit in the Library during open hours and make our own scripts.
    Everyone wanted to be Alexis or Crystal. Too funny...that was ages ago.
    Oh, I have an autographed pic of Valerie Bertinelli also.
