Picture this. The Whole Foods in Brentwood. Marcia Cross is wandering through the produce section when she feels a tap on her shoulder. She turns, expecting it to be a fan. The look on her face confirms she has no idea who she is looking at, and is meeting her for the first time.
The person goes on and on about how much she loved Melrose Place and literally talks for 3 or 4 minutes about how great it was, and then goes into another 3 or 4 minute gush about Desperate Housewives. Not wanting to be rude, Marcia asked our person what she did for a living. The woman replied, “that she had starred on 7th Heaven for 10 years and done a few movies.”
Marcia then said, “I thought you looked familiar.” It was obvious though she had no idea that it was Jessica Biel or who she was, and in fact was just being nice to the strange fan in the produce section.
