The only thing I dislike about these people is that they assume you've read everything and watched every movie or made-for-television production of theirs and their comments do show it. In Just After Sunset he made a Tim Robbins remark that sailed over my head. I read it months ago and only just now got the connection.
Why do they have to assume that everyone's a fan of the most rabid type imaginable? And why for god's sake do they have to treat every last person as if we're a fan of the most obnoxious sort? I've been treated that way by several 'famous' people now, some of whom I never would have guessed would even act that way. Some of whom I really admired and thought nothing remotely close to what they assumed I must think.
I barely have any time to notice people of celebrity status, I haven't been on this site for months because of my work. The only reason I'm here now is that I was physically injured and given 3 weeks off duty. It's been the slowest, most boring 3 weeks of this year and for the first two weeks I was in too much pain to be here. I've only just now stopped feeling the really intense agony of the wound so that I can comment without sounding as if I'm out of touch with reality. Unfortunately it decided to show me only the comments from this year so I lost all the other Alerts.

It's good to see you. I hope your injury heals swiftly and well.

I'm not sure who're referring to by "these people". Maybe I haven't paid close enough attention to the thread.
