Bouncing off the Anton’s thread, which actors have we actually seen, not in the street, but stuffing forkfuls of food into their greedy mouths?

Off the top of my head:

James Earl Jones, Chez Josephine
Anne Hathaway, Grayz
Hilary Swank, Craft
Ashley Olsen, Ess-a-Bagel (okay, it might have been Mary-Kate)
Jessica Lange, J.Sheekey, London
Robert Wagner and Jill St John, Benoit, Paris

Does anyone want to hear that last story again? I must have told it before.

Ron really knew how to celebrate.

 

Bette Midler - some restaurant I don't remember in Paris

 

DeNiro, Keitel - Augustine

 

Mary Louise-Parker - Pastis

 

Michael Kelly - Cafe Katja more than once

 

Meryl Streep - Eastwood

 

More I can't remember.

 

Back when I was in fancy catering, plenty of them - just not in restaurants, instead at events.

Louis CK (before the whole situation...) - Minetta, he was heading to the cellar after.
Non actors - sat next to Ivan Orkin at Gari once.

And apparently, so do I!

Good lord, yes, back when I was serving my time in WeddingWorld. The famous people were generally a lot nicer than the regular old rich people.

100%.  I do remember smoking with Pacino in some back room at some fancy-dancy event. Not a cigarette, either.

Ruth Gordon (at Anthony's Pier 4, Boston) 

Nicholas Cage (at Musso & Frank, LA)

The actor who played Grandpa Munster--can't think of his name (at an IHOP in KCMO--LOL!)


Deb
Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

I forgot about LA! Ed Westwick and Jessica Szohr at Wa. I was beside myself with excitement. Chuck Bass!

The scary thing  -  don't know about 90% of the people mentioned.

Here's a story I don't think I've told.

 

Young barrister in London, very smart but a bit innocent, at a drinks party for theatrical types. He's introduced to an older man.

 

"Hello, I'm James."

"Nice to meet you, I'm Al."

"What do you do?"

"I'm an actor."

"Oh really?  Stage or screen?"
"A bit of both."

"Would I have seen you in anything?"

"I don't know, maybe The Godfather."

 

True.

Not quite an actor, but Derek Jarman at Jimmy's in Soho (London).  

 

Tim Spall in the Nellie Dean (a pub, but they served free food on Sunday lunchtimes, so he was probably eating. I was).
