when he looks at you, it's like the world tilts on its axis almost. She dives right into one of the cupcakes during the interview. It was actually the first time in my career that I thought I might be too nervous to the interview of it all. Can I tell you a secret dream? I got a soft spot now. Thank you. Have fun. Meeting George Clooney was definitely the highlight of 2011 for me. Hi, George! My name is Allie. Hi Allie, I'm George. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. It was here in New York at the Ides of March premiere, and as you searched walked down the red carpet you could see reporters, male and female, were all fondling all over themselves to get the glimpse at the impossible tanned, impossibly white toothed George Clooney, and when I met him, he did not disappoint. When he looks at you, it's like the world tilts on its axis almost. As he went to leave, he kind of grabbed my arm, looked me in the eyes and said, "have fun". Thank you. Have fun. And I thought Hey George, I can do that. I've done a lot of junkets and usually when you get there, the actors are kind of tired. They've been answering the same questions all day. but not Jason Segel when he did the Muppets. Alright, alright, When I walked in room, I go to shake his hand but he refuses to shake it, and instead he goes no no bring it in here, and insists on hugging me, and obviously I did. And then I shook the hand of Walter the the Muppet who was sitting next to him. Nice polka dots, Thank you. That felt very Muppety. Yeah, it is actually, He also complimented me on my shirt such an exciting, funny interview to do, and at the end, of course, I hugged Jason again. I will always remember 2011 as the year that I finally met my childhood crush Brad Pitt, on my birthday birthday no less. Growing up my wall was covered with posters of Brad. I watched Legends of the Fall like, every day, so finally meeting him was huge for me. Yea, I got to say I got a soft spot now. Charter was here on the red carpet at the Money Ball premiere over in Oakland. And it was actually the first time in my career that I thought I might be to nervous to actually interview at all. Is that right, Is that right. He, of course, looked incredibly handsome and I became my twelve year old self all over agai,n when I saw him. One of my favorite celebrity moments in 2011 was with Anne Hathoway. She actually shot one of our 'I'm a Huge Fan' episodes. And she was so cool, she actually thanked all of us for letting her be a part of it. I wanna thank you. It was so great meeting you. That is so cute and unbelievably flattering. We actually brought her some treat from her favorite vegan bakery Baby Cakes. Thank you so much. She dived right in to one of the cupcakes during the interview. I was really just impressed by how grateful she was for the whole experience and how much she seemed to get out of it too. You were just so free. Earlier this year, I got to go to the Arthur junket. So, of course, the interview I was most excited about was Russell Brandt. When I walked into the room, his publicist just announced that Becky from Pop Sugar was here and for some reason, Russell thought this was the funniest thing he'd ever heard in his life and just started saying it over and over again. Pop Sugar Becky, Pop Sugar Becky, Pop Sugar Becky. This had me cracking up the whole entire time. So, when the interview finally hit the web, I had a brand new nickname and I still get called Pop Sugar Becky to this day. Pop Sugar Becky. Sounds like a Red Hot Chili Peppers song. Oh my God. Nice polka dots. Thank you, have fun.
