I see that the photo of “me” and Julianne Moore that I blogged a couple of days ago has gotten a record number of hits, and 56 Facebook shares. I need to come clean that it was intended as just a silly hoax.
I have never met Julianne Moore; the man shown is renowned actor James Woods. It’s been a running joke among a lot of people that I look like Woods — I have been hearing it since I was 16 years old. My buddy Pete Harrison sent the picture to me as a gag.
Nor did Moore visit Washington, DC this past weekend as part of her charity efforts, as far as I am aware. The Facebook comments I made about her kissing me on the cheek and telling me I was “a special guy?” Pure fiction. Her press office contacting me the next day because she wanted to stay in touch? Also fiction. Finally, I extemporized about her hair carrying the scent of strawberries and lavender, but … somehow … I just KNOW that part is actually true.
I love it when people are kind enough to share my blog posts — I’m really sorry if anyone passed this along unaware that it was a joke! 🙂
