    Literally... on Madison Avenue today! What a lovely lady! We have spent so much time the past few days being negative about celebrities myself included. So CB is one of my favorites! Who do you admire and why?

    Cool! I've always liked her. She has always struck me as a very classy person.

    hm...that is strange...i just looked her up on IMDB, and indeed Tushka is not her daughter. I knew about Chloe Malle, i just thought Tushka was from another marriage. I always thought Tushka was Chloe's half sister.

    after i saw Barcelona, my friend told me a couple weeks later she was Candice's daughter...hmph.

    The Wind and the Lion was a 1970's movie with Candice Bergen and Sean Connery (and Brian Keith) that still holds up very well.

    I never recognize people in person. Its not until someone says "Hey look! There's Mickey Rooney" that I think...oh wow, there's Mickey Rooney! Otherwise stars are just random people to me.

    It's kind of the same with me! I have to knock them down and pick them up and see them face to face. I once sat next to Diane Sawyer on a flight and had no idea who she was until we started talking about what we do for a living. (I watch GMA almost everyday):redface:

    I was with my BF and we passed Robert Reed in Central Park. I didn't notice him and my BF only told me after he had passed so I turned to see the back of his head.

    Another time another BF and I were walking along a street in the Village and he pointed out that Winona Ryder was behind us. At that time I wasn't really sure who she was though I recognized the name. I'm not into celebrities at all. My cousin had to tell me who Dennis Rodman and Anna Nicole Smith were. I heard their names all the time but didn't know who they were. (Did I mention I like to read reference books? Hello -- Have you read my blog??)

    A national newscaster was driving by my yard sale yearrrrrrrs ago and stopped when she spied a large pic of Garbo. Even though I used to watch her on the news all the time I didn't recognize her until we introduced ourselves. We had a good conversation (we are both Garbo collectors) and she stopped by my B&B from time to time on weekends in New Hope PA where she had a country house. I have pics of us at the Garbo estate auction at Sotheby's. We lost touch after I moved to the ends of the eath, I mean, Texas.

    I used to work for a Sci-Fi Con company. The talent would run the gamut from nice to rude. There were friendly ones. There were indifferent ones. There were divas. There flirty ones. You name it.
    The ones I admired most were the ones who had the decency to at least say "hello" to those of us working the Cons...and the ones I worked with more than once who actually would remember me rated particularly highly. Among the nicest:
    Jamie Bamber
    Tricia Helfer
    Nichelle Nichols
    Teryl Rothery
    Michael Shanks
    Dee Snider

    Ha! Reminds me of the Notting Hill scene. "What do you do?" "I'm an actor." "In what?" "I'm in movies." "How much do actors make these days? I mean, how much were you paid for the last movie you were in?" "Fifteen million dollars."

    :eek::rolleyes::tongue:

    Was she the gutsy heroine from "Bite the Bullet"? Or the harsh mom-in-law from "Sweet Home Alabama"?

    Lol

    She was very soft spoken and refined. She reminded me of Catherine Deneuve when I did not recognize her.

    OMG, awesome! I totally LOVEEEEE Candice!
    I've loved her ever since SATC and then she played in my all time favourite show Boston Legal too.
    She is one of the wonderful, older actresses that don't try to look like 30, when they aren't.
    She looks like she's so nice and has class. Is she really like that in real life?
