[Blind Gossip] We always find stories about a celebrity using the “Don’t you know who I am?” line amusing.
Here’s one that occurred when a major action star – who first became famous in the 1990s – was filming in a small rural town in the south.
We were filming part of [movie] in [town]. We were driving back and forth between sets and we kept passing this old man selling these cool handmade birdhouses out of his pickup truck on the side of the road.
[Actor] asked me to stop one day, because he wanted to buy one of the birdhouses. He got into a conversation with the old man.
After a couple of minutes, it was pretty apparent that this man had no idea he was talking to this world-famous movie star. As he’s handing the money to the man for the birdhouse, [Actor] said to him, “Don’t you know who I am?”
The old man shrugged and said, “No… but if you’ll tell me who your mommy and daddy are I might!”
I burst out laughing. [Actor] didn’t laugh. Yes, he takes himself pretty seriously.
BONUS CLUE: If you can’t figure this one out, you will absolutely get a roundhouse kick to the gut!
