Probably my strangest celebrity encounter was with Gilbert.

Back in the 90's when he was on USA Up All Night he was shooting a promo for the show in a mall near my job that I used to eat lunch. He was sitting in one of those director's chair with a large bucket of popcorn. The director would yell action and he would do his typical crazy Gilbert **** throwing the popcorn everywhere acting nuts. Then they'd stop filming - Gilbert would just sit there staring straight ahead with the most miserable look I've ever seen on someone's face. Imagine some 10 year kid who just found out his dog was run over by a car. Crew people would be scurrying back and forth and in front of him, no one would address him or even look at him - kind of like this was all routine. This poor grip was trying to sweep up the popcorn under his feet and Gilbert just sat staring into space like he didn't even realize she was there.

Then they'd shoot another take and he'd go back to being crazy Gilbert - really surreal ****, lol.

I heard that since then he got married and went into therapy - hopefully he enjoyed his remaining years. RIP GG.
