Celebrity parents you have met
We always post about celebrity encounters. Well, which of you know celeb parents/siblings/families? From whence did these people come?
My dad's longtime coworker dated Brad Pitt's mom in high school and is still close friends with his family -- who came to a big retirement party for said colleague last year. I met his parents, they were really normal and very VERY Republican-seeming.
Sadly that is my sole celebrity parent encounter. You?

Brad and Angelina probably initially bonded over what Republicunt nutjobs their parents are.

Btw, my maternal grandfather was friends/acquaintances with Marina Oswald. I never met either one.

As a kid, I met John Raitt. No clue who he was or why he was famous but my mother acted like she had just met Mick Jagger.
This was at a small dinner party and I never could quite determine who he was or what he had done. It was given by my mother's BFF Beth McVey, so I presumed he had been on Broadway or something.
Later my mother said he was Bonnie Raitt's father. That name I knew, mainly through a famous quote of hers:
Bonnie allegedly walked into a party and announced, "There isn't a face in this room I haven't sat on."

My great-aunt knew and briefly dated Heisman winner Tom Harmon, Mark's dad, when at Michigan in the early 40s. Always spoke enormously highly of him, stayed friends with him for many years and saw him often at reunions.

R8, I'd like a link for that claim. As a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, she's stayed out of politics and opinions other than we should be intervening in places like the Sudan because of the famine, child soldiers, etc.
R5, as far as that comment from Bonnie Raitt, there was a period when she was a drunk. She really got involved with bottom-of-the-barrel types like my former neighbor, a smaller-town, sometime musician. When she finally finally gave up alcohol and got healthy, she gave up a lot that crap and redeveloped a good relationship with her father.

R8 Exactly. Angie is a secret Republican (who claims to be an independent). Not only did she support the Iraq war, she's pro-guns and said she and Clint Eastwood shared the same political views (and he's a Republican).

Bob Fosse's cousin went to my father's church. He and his spoke better of Gwen, though.

Angelina Jolie is a dumb junkie. She's been a dumb junkie for many years. Her political views are not something that an intelligent person would pay attention to or take seriously.

Julie Nixon and David Eisenhower's daughter Jennie is a local actress in Philly and a really great person. Just saw her play Lucille Frank in Parade at the Arden and she was great as always.

Having once dated Brad Pitt's Republicunt mom is hardly anything to brag about.

Not to mention how to spell "Seberg."

I don't recall Jolie ever weighing in on the Iraq war. You're going to have to provide proof of that.
And WW for r18.

I'm 35 and I know who Jean Seberg is. People are not as ignorant as you think they are.

This thread is a lot less interesting than one might think - no offence to the posters.
