Meryl Streep, Dench, Gilbert & More!!!

Post by heelorton79 » October 13th, 2017, 4:42 pm

Recently I was given the opportunity to meet my #1 actress (and my #1 all-around want next to Sean Penn), the one and only Meryl Streep. I have been a fan of hers for many years and was kind of shocked when I scored this. She is a 20-time Oscar nominee (an acting award record), the first being for my favorite film, "The Deer Hunter", a 3-time winner, a 30-time Golden Globe nominee (earning 9), and a 3-time Emmy Award winner. My friend and I met her "one-on-one" at a private event and she was as nice as can be. Any collectors that have had experiences with Meryl know she usually isn't fan-friendly, especially when it comes to photos with, so needless to say, we got VERY LUCKY! To score a #1 want and have the person treat you with respect and agree to do the photo is just an awesome experience!

Another venture took me to a spot for Melissa Gilbert. On the way in, she denied, mentioning that she was not feeling well and implied that she didn't want to get anyone sick. However, she promised on the way out, mentioning that her Tylenol Cold will have kicked in by then. I am not sure how there would be less germs at that point, but I accepted this and left. I then went to a different event to meet cast members from the new film, "Victoria & Abdul". Judi Dench was unbelievably accommodating, even after a grapher approached her to sign on a roll-down while she was still in the car! Eddie Izzard and Ali Fazal were great as well. Afterwards, I returned for Melissa Gilbert, and she posed with everyone who asked for the photo, and signed autographs as well, happily spreading her germs for all. I was actually glad she did not do it on the way in because she had no makeup and sunglasses. Anyway, a very nice woman. While there, I ran into actor Michael Laurence as well.

Here are the pics....
