Running with Jane Seymourby caroline
When you see Jane Seymour while running, do you:
A.) Keep running?
B.) Stop and say hello?
DUH. Does this even require any thought?
I know it’s not exactly every day that you are hit with this question. Therefore, you can imagine my surprise this morning when I was cranking out a run on the Pittsburgh trails and almost ran straight into a film crew. I noticed a woman standing to my left and (while still running) said to her, “Can I run through here?” She turned around and said, “Of course.”
For a split second, I proceeded to run, and then I realized my mistake. THAT WOMAN was actress Jane Seymour. I spun around.
“You’re Jane Seymour,” I said.
I caught my breath and walked over to her. “I at least have to shake your hand,” I said.
She smiled and extended her hand.
“I’m Caroline,” I said.
“Nice to meet you,” she said.
“OK, have I nice day,” I said, smiling and turning to run again.
And that’s how you chat with a movie star in 30 seconds or less.
I’m still not sure which movie Jane (we’re on a first name basis now) is filming in Pittsburgh (damn you, Google), but I think I will have to see it if only for the mere fact that I now feel like I played an eensy-weensy part in it.
So, I didn’t exactly run with Jane Seymour today, but you can sure as hell bet that little interaction gave me a rush of excitement that helped me to finish my run in true Hollywood fashion — fantastically. Thanks, Coach Jane.
As I was running, I started to giggle to myself thinking of how pleased some of the boys in my life would be knowing that I met her. No, not because she was Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, but because of this (from Wedding Crashers):
Tee, hee … HAVE A HOLLYWOOD GLAM DAY!!
