I haven’t had that many weird encounters with fans, thank God.

When we were all kids, there was one particular trailer that I think we can all remember.

What the hell was that?’
Matt Reeves
I loved being in Close Encounters, just to watch Steven Spielberg working was exciting.

Rahm Emanuel
‘Toy Story’ we found, sorta by accident, because we didn’t know what we were doing, the idea of being replaced by somebody. Everybody has that fear, or encounters this jealousy at some point.

My first encounters with faith came about the time I was a Boy Scout, at about 14 or 15. I made the logical deduction that they operate the same way; I treated my faith like earning a merit badge, and everything about Christianity was about earning merit badges.

I’ve had a few ghostly encounters.
Trudie Styler
Personally, I never had any negative encounters with the law growing up.

Jeff Nichols
I was reading this book called ‘Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind.’ It’s really, really good if you want to believe in that stuff.
Parker Posey
I’ve had encounters with animals that have been really mystical. I’ve always been really into animals. But the way they appear in the paintings, they come from my mind’s eye more than: ‘I’m gonna draw a dog now.’ It isn’t thought out: ‘Now I’m gonna draw a bird.’ They just appear.
John Lurie
I am sharing screen space with Ranbir Kapoor, but I am not exactly playing Sanjay Dutt’s love interest, I am one of his encounters… It’s just a cameo, but I would take my role as important, as it is a biopic on Sanjay Dutt, so whatever is important in his life is being shown in the film.
Karishma Tanna
When I saw the scene in ‘Close Encounters,’ and Richard Dreyfuss’s son is screaming at him – that’s a heartbreaking scene. And I remember being devastated by ‘E.T.’ Or when E.T. started to get sick. That broke me up a little bit.
Jeff Nichols
Death’s an old joke, but each individual encounters it anew.

Shaun Ryder
I was a young boy when I met the Surrealists and the Dadaists. I admired them, and that is what they taught me: to admire. Admiration is very important. People who are unable to admire others lose an important part of their soul. My soul developed from a very early age through encounters with admired people.

The mystery at the center of ‘Burial Rites’ is not who killed whom on the night of March 13, 1828. It is the mystery each of us encounters: Can we every truly know another? Can we ever truly know ourselves?
Hannah Kent
I accepted the interviews and encounters that had to be held with the media, but I would have preferred to work in peace.
