Keeping my reply simplified to the initial scenario - passing EM or anyone else on a street (and thus a casual situation)?
Why, say hello. Of course! Doesn't mean I'm stopping them to ask for a comprehensive recital of their dissertation. Just saying hi and hello.
Respectful boundaries in all human interactions are essential but geez, these guys put their jeans on one leg at a time, the same as you and I. All men are
created equal and all that jazz, right? So don't sweat it!
Every occupation as a degree of social obligation. Health care professionals are asked for medical advice: "Oh, you're a ___? Let me ask you about
this thing that has been bothering me...". Decorators are asked about color schemes and trends: "I have an antique cabinet at home. How can I update
and blend this piece with the rest of my furniture." Etc, etc.
Actors and actresses are asked for a little of their time and maybe an autograph. In the era of The National Enquirer, Access Hollywood, and TMZ, these guys
and girls are entering in with an understanding that they are one surprise blockbuster away from having a TMZ cameraman following them to the airport.
We (including "celebrities") are capable of making rationale and respectful decisions. Don't harass. Be courteous.
If you want to take the trash out of the 'celebrity life', don't buy the garbage mags, don't watch tabloid tv and don't read/watch
anything involving Perez Hilton. However, don't minimize yourself in the process. No one in any other profession are leaving their industries because
people approach them in a 'non-industry' setting. We're all grown adults who can say "thanks but I can't talk right now."
