Did You Know?


Margot Kidder: I didn't get what fans were until I started doing these conventions and meeting these very moving, very, very, very sweet people. And until then, when you live in L.A., and you're playing that movie star game, that BS game, they're always seen as something you need to be kept from. 'God forbid I should be down on that level!' You know, forgetting of course we're all people, just all different schmucks on the subway.
