I'm kind of well-known in Holland, which is nice. But in Holland, we're down to earth; there are no paparazzi in my garden and no autograph hunters at the door. We have 'Strictly Come Dancing,' but I've not been asked.
I've never turned down an autograph request. I've never not taken a picture with someone.
It's incredible when I'm out in these towns. I have people telling me they were waiting for hours just to meet me and get my autograph. I feel so guilty. I always feel like I have to give them more than just Kato Kaelin.
'Twilight' has been a great opportunity, and it's been great fun. Hey, if I'm 50, and someone still wants an autograph for 'Twilight,' OK, cool.
I've signed autographs as Natalie Portman. I was at a Film Festival party where someone asked if I was her, and I didn't want to embarrass them, so I signed the autograph as her. I hope she doesn't mind.
It's rare that I turn down a photo or autograph, because these are the people that support me, so why not support them. I love it and I invite it. I love what I do and the whole 'celebrity' life and all that.
I am a very open, social, friendly person, and when it comes to people approaching me and asking for an autograph, I am totally cool with doing any of that. It's a lot of fun.
I don't like asking for an autograph, but I would like to take a picture with Jessica Simpson because I love her style!
I did ask Matt Damon for his autograph - and I got a picture, too!
The fact that people actually want my autograph is crazy.
I met Cary Grant once, and I was absolutely star struck. I got his autograph.
When I'm on the road with concerts, people ask me to autograph my CDs, but more and more they come up with the cookbooks.
Concerts every night, autograph signings, endorsements, and so on. That's not what real life is about.
I get letters. I get several a week, I think. A lot of people want a picture, a lot of people just want an autograph.
It's always been kind of weird to me because when you give someone an autograph, you're looking down at a piece of paper and once you sign it the person moves on.
If I'm doing a play, 30 to 40 percent of the people that come to the stage door have pictures of 'Alien' for me to autograph. And usually, the photos are pretty gory ones.
I don't sign autographs when I'm out for a meal or out with my kids. I think that's rude and disrespectful. I would never ask anyone for an autograph while they were eating dinner; that's what I was taught by my parents.
A fan would get an autograph and that was that. If we didn't tour again for five years, we wouldn't remember them.
I'm amazed that years after I stopped playing tennis, people still recognize me in restaurants and ask for my autograph.
When I'm at home, I want to be a normal person. I don't want to hear, 'Can I have your autograph?'
When people don't know me any more or want my autograph, then I'll think about retiring.
I've been so lucky with the people I've worked with, but I'm such a fan girl. When I moved to London at 16, I saw a man from a Dulux advert on the bus, and I asked for his autograph. I was so excited; you can imagine what I'm like now - I really need to control myself.
I never set out to become 'famous.' I mean, when you're 14 you think 'I'm gonna become a writer and people will want my autograph and that'll be cool,' but you grow up and you learn that's just not how the world works. I resigned myself to the fact that I would probably never be published and if I did it probably wouldn't be a big deal.
I sign every autograph I can for kids because I remember myself at that age. I think it's ridiculous that some guys won't sign for a kid.
They want a lip print for their autograph books. I'm a sport; I go along.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
