One of my favorite conversation starters is to ask people for their best celebrity encounter story. Here’s mine: A few years ago Woody Harrelson came to my college on a tour to drum up publicity for his new movie about biking or hemp fuel or legalizing marijuana, or maybe all of the above. My boyfriend and I went to his lecture and snagged a free poster on the way out.

Mo’Nique was also in the kissing spirit, planting one on Aunt Dot, Christoph Waltz and Morgan Freeman before accepting her award. Betty White also got a little randy. Accepting the lifetime achievement award, she said, “I am still to this day starstruck. I look out at this audience and I see so many famous faces. But what really boggles my mind is that I actually know many of you. And I’ve worked with quite a few. Maybe had a couple.” And then there was Sandra, who called out her hubby Jesse James in her acceptance speech. “I love you so much,” she said. “And you’re really hot. I want you so much!” Thanks for letting us know, Sandy?
