He’s a gentle giant and a marvelous actor, but even John Goodman gets nervous when he meets celebrities that he really admires.
During his interview on “The Howard Stern Show,” the “Roseanne” star described his horrible experience meeting 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.' [makes sound of bomb dropping] 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."
Promoting their latest film all around the world, the cast of "The Monuments Men" headed to the Milan premiere on Monday (February 10).
