Every once in a while, a celeb comes along who surprises me with how cool they are. And by cool, I don’t mean awesome, I mean how well they handle the whole fame thing; how they can still carry on a real convo; and how, even when I’m doing my best to sneakily ask questions about their personal lives, they answer candidly (or decline to in a polite way).
