Poor John Goodman!! I think he’s great! And actually, this story tends to make me like him MORE!
He was on The Howard Stern Show recently, and he shared an embarrassing story about an encounter he had with Kristen Wiig.
“She was talking to somebody else, and I was just – I think she’s so great, and the social barriers broke down and I interrupted the conversation. And I would just hate for somebody to do that to me. And she goes, ‘yeah, I’ll talk to you in a minute.’ It was like the Atom. I shrunk down to Atom size. I really like her, and it was embarrassing, so I’ll never speak to her again.”
Ouch! Majorly embarrassing!!
But COME ON! John Goodman is totally an A-lister! Kristen Wiig probably should have been fangirling over him just as much as he was fangirling over her! Don’t you think?
He also talked about his relationships with his Monuments Men costars George Clooney and Matt Damon.
“I tried to hang with them, but Matt and George would always have these conversations, and they’d go out for cocktails afterwards. I don’t really drink, and I don’t bring a lot to that party because they’re super A-level guys.”
JOHN GOODMAN! You are on their level!! You are ABOVE their level!! You are James P. Sullivan!!
Don’t you just wanna hug him and tell him everything’s gonna be OK?
I hope Kristen Wiig calls him and tells him she loves him!
