Celebs who are notorious for being curt and often rude to local hero worshippers. Starting with George Brett, Tom Watson and Len Dawson to name but three. There are some nice guys, too. Channel 9 anchor Larry Moore and Johnny Dare, for example.
But for the purposes of this item, let’s stick with the former. The celebrities we worship that always manage to act nice around most members of the media or when the cameras are rolling, but are all too often dicks when fans come up and want to praise them or – heaven forbid – ask for an autograph.
When brings us to this story in the National Enquirer about KC and Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis.
“I’m a huge fan of ex-SNL star Jason Sudeikis, but three cheers for his gorgeous gal Olivia Wilde – who lashed out – and tongue-spanked Funny Fiance when he rudely blew off a gaggle of teen fans begging for his autograph as they exited a San Fernando Valley eatery,” writes columnist Mike Walker. ” ‘ Jason waved his hands to shoo the kids away, walked swiftly to his car, jumped in and started the engine while Olivia was still standing at the curb,’ said a source close to the star. ‘When he rolled down the window and asked what she was waiting for, Olvia snapped that she wouldn’t get in until he got out and apologized. Jason kept motioning but she wasn’t budging – so he finally cut the engine, got out with his tail between his legs and told the kids, “Sorry…I’m happy to take a picture with you guys.” ‘ CLICK< CLICK went the kids’ cameras as Jason signed autographs, and Olivia – after giving her man a big hug – opened the car door and climbed in.”
Not exactly a flattering representation of KC’s rep for Midwestern hospitality.
