It’s Friday the 13th – What Are You Afraid Of??

It’s Friday the 13th – to me all that means is it’s the day before Valentine’s Day. To others who are superstitious – it may mean a lot more!!

Page Six, gave a list of celebrity fears and it is quite interesting. Take a look at some of your favorite celebrity’s fears.

Stephen King: bugs
Clay Aiken: Felines
Henry Winkler: Germs
Pierce Brosnan: Claustrophobia
Eminem: Owls
George Clooney: Earthquakes
Jennifer Jason Leigh: Rats
Al Franken: Balconies of tall buildings
Sigourney Weaver: Elevators
Lyle Lovett’s: Cows ( One kicked him once)
Meg Ryan: Underground garages
Cher: Dentists
Frankie Muniz: sushi
Keanu Reeves: Dark
Johnnie Depp: Clowns
Ricky Martin: Snakes
Liv Tyler is antsy if she doesn’t know the time and Andie MacDowell turns the light switch on and off three times before going to sleep. Sarah Michelle Geller has a panic that she’ll be mistakenly ID’d as dead and will be buried alive only to come to in a coffin. Winona Ryder nearly drowned at age 12 and hasn’t gone swimming since. Kim Basinger’s agoraphobia was so severe that at one point she didn’t leave her house for four months.

Steven Spielberg said, “I fear small places, airplanes, elevators, the world around me. I’m just a fearful person.”

Wow!! I have a fear of heights and dentists. No explanation for the heights and I had a bad experience with the dentist as a child. Some fears can be explained while others are just fears. What about you – what are you afraid of??

Accompanied by Harvard men in drag, Renee Zellweger has been honored as the Hasty Pudding Theatricals woman of the year. Hasty Pudding is the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe. By tradition, many of its male members wear women’s clothes for the parade.

The actress rode in the back of a silver convertible Bentley during a parade through Harvard Square on Thursday. She waved to spectators while capturing the event on her cell phone camera.

The Hasty Pudding Theatricals Man of the Year is James Franco. James is set to receive his award on February 13th.

The Man and Woman of the Year awards are presented annually to performers who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment.” The Woman of the Year award has been granted to many notable entertainers, including Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster, Elizabeth Taylor, and, most recently, Charlize Theron. The Man of the Year’s past recipients include Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Bruce Willis, and, last year, Christopher Walken.

Congratulations to Renee and James!!

Drew Barrymore Doesn’t Understand Relationships

And who could blame her. Drew had a very unconventional childhood – her parents divorced at an early age and in an interview with Britain’s OK Magazine Drew explains,

“My father was literally out of his mind and my mother was more like a friend.”

Drew has had a string of long-term relationships and has been married twice – for one-month in 1994 to a Welsh bar owner and a 15-month marriage to comedian Tom Green in 2001.

Her failed marriages have had a long term effect on Drew,

“It left me without any bearings when it came to how to live in general. That obviously affects you in terms of everything else you’re going to experience. So I haven’t had as much happiness or success in my past relationships as I would have liked. What’s helped me is having really good and close friends who I’ve always been able to rely on”

You have to feel for Drew – marriage is hard enough – Drew didn’t have any role models as a child as far as relationships go. The closest thing to a role model that Drew had was Steven Spielberg. When you thank someone at the Golden Globes for showing up when you said you would that speaks volumes.

I hope Drew figures it out and finds her one true love.
