You guys, Sandra Oh from Grey’s Anatomy just called me. At first I assumed she was calling to discuss the fact that I called her character an insult to women. Or maybe she’d seen my commercials and just wanted to say how much she liked them. But instead, in a very rehearsed voice (she is, after all, an actress), she urged me to vote no on the AFTRA prime-time television contract. I guess even big stars value my opinion – after all, I’ve been a SAG/AFTRA member for over three years!
When she was done with her spiel – during which she never let me ask a question or even interject an “mm-hm” – I thanked her for calling and said that I thought she was great in Sideways, and you know what she did? She hung up on me. I guess she was pretty mad about my Grey’s review after all.
