These Hollywood A-Listers Have Been So Rude To Legendary Actor John Goodman
John Goodman is presumably exactly as his name implies: a good man.
The 63-year-old actor has starred in countless critically-acclaimed and award-winning films, including the most recent, "Trumbo." The man-turned-household-name by his regular role on "Roseanne" also stars in "10 Cloverfield Lane," "The Monuments Men," "The Gambler" and "Argo."
Although he has quite an oeuvre, Goodman is not your stereotypical A-lister with a penchant for big Hollywood parties and a collection of award-boasting friends.
The actor paid a visit to "The Howard Stern Show" recently, where he opened up to the talk show host about where he stands among his Type A, big screen co-stars.
He told Stern about the time he tried introducing himself to Kristen Wiig, saying,
Poor John! Can you imagine bearing witness to this sad course of events? Just try to think about who Kristen could have been talking to who is SO MUCH MORE important than THE John Goodman. I mean, this man is, like, the most understated legend of all time.
To pour salt on the already-gaping wound in our hearts, John recalled filming alongside George Clooney and Matt Damon in 2014's "The Monuments Men," saying,
OK, this is just getting ridiculous. Who doesn't invite John Goodman out for a drink after a long day of filming? F*ck your whiskey! Hand the man his beverage of choice and pick his brain about what it's like to be John Goodman.
To save our souls from turning to dust, the actor ended his conversation with Stern about his reservoir of sad encounters on a good note. He highlighted what a joy it was to work with recent Oscar winner Brie Larson on the upcoming film, "Kong: Skull Island," saying,
Thank god for Ma.
