SOMETIMES I TALK to famous people, such as Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees or maybe Jessica Biel, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, or perhaps the world’s greatest cellist, Yo Yo Ma. Also, Christina Ricci, Denise Richards, Jack Black, Jon Bon Jovi, Kelly Ripa, Zach Braff, James Patterson, Katherine McPhee, Amy Poehler, Terry Bradshaw, Bob Costas, Drew Carey, Andre Agassi, and Homer Simpson. That’s right. Homer Simpson.

Here are a few of those, all of which were cover stories for American Way, where, as a freelancer, I have both written and edited celebrity cover stories:

Denise Richards‘ dog jumped into my coffee cup. And, Jack Black was sleepy.

Amy Poehler is funny without a script. And, Christina Ricci likes zombies. But, who doesn’t?

Andre Agassi took his shirt off in front of me. And, Drew Brees has gumbo on his porch.

Bob Costas was 45 minutes late for our interview for a cover story in American Way magazine. “But that’s still more on time than a typical American Airlines flight,” he said. And, Terry Bradshaw punched me in the chest.

Drew Carey told me a very long, very unprintable joke. And, Kelly Ripa has talked to a lot more famous people than I have.

Jon Bon Jovi wore leather pants to our interview. I did not. And, Homer Simpson did not wear leather pants to our interview. I did.
