Usually hearing about love at first sight really chaps my a**. Sure, infatuation at first sight, I’d-like-to-potentially-bump-into-you-by-”accident”- and-prompt-you-to-ask-for-my-phone-number first sight, but real, genuine, knock-your-socks-off love at first sight? Not a chance.
Of course, the one woman who would make me question my beliefs would happen to also be one of the most beautiful starlets in Hollywood. Why does everything cool happen to them?
I have to admit stars telling us their personal little love stories is entertaining to me. I like to see how theirs relates to my humble little love journey. But this story is just subtle and charming enough for me to believe…and be jealous of. Here’s what she said:
“I thought, ‘He won’t be interested in me; I’m not a contender. He was so cool, so funny’ — I was such a fan of his and had always fancied his speed and his intelligence. He’s a brilliant actor with a brain like lightning. … I felt like fresh meat at the market … I thought, I’m not beautiful enough or his type. I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn’t kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed.”
