: I have written to Kevin, or at least tried to several ways and every time I get the same thing, nothing. Now I don't think I am asking too much. I simply would like to meet Kevin and if all goes well have a stimulating conversation with him. I am also a fan but my intrest in meeting with him stems from more than just Idle fan chat. I think Kevin would be a person I would like to know, and I doubt very much if an hour or so of his time would be hard to arrange. My point today however is I think it is more rude to say nothing in reply to my letters than to at least make some attempt at saying no, or yes or fuck off or whatever is on his mind. surely he has time to write a simple e-mail.
First off, he has been extremely busy for the past ten months or so with the production and promoting of the new flick.
More importantly, and I do not mean to offend you, but don't you think there are hundreds of people who feel the same way? Hell, I would love to just hang out with the guy and have some laughs. We're about the same age, both grew up in New Jersey, have similar senses of humor, I'd love to hang out with Kevin. But do you really think it's feasible for him to become friends with everyone who wants to be friends with him.
As it is he makes himself more accessable to his audience than any celebrity that I am aware of. That's actually one of the things about him for which he has earned my respect.
Back to your issues with him, just looking at the numbers of people who would email him if his private email address became public, or even post these kinds of messages for him here, do you really think it's unreasonable for him just let them pass without acknowledgement. What is it exactly you want to hear from him. "No, I'm sorry, I can't spend any time with you. For all I know you could be some raving lunatic or some teenage fanboy." (No offense to the teenage fanboys out there.)
Cut the guy some slack. He does way more for his fans than he has to, and yet you demand more from him. That's just not cool in my book.
