Hi fellow Brett fans,
I live in southwest Missouri. I met Brett in Austin, Texas on June 21, 2003. A girl friend from Ohio and I flew to Austin for the Dennis Quaid Celebrity Golf Tournament, which was a benefit for several children’s charities. One of the special events, which was held at the host hotel, the Renaissance, was a gala called “A Starry, Starry Night.” It was held on the large patio area of the hotel. There were hundreds of people there, and we enjoyed a nice buffet meal and entertainment, which included a charity auction and live music. Dennis Quaid performed with a band (not his own band, The Sharks) and several other celebrities also performed with the band. Brett was obviously there as a friend of Dennis’s. As we all know, they made the movie “Something to Talk About” together, and my friend said Brett told her that he and Dennis had gone to school together, so they’ve been friends a number of years.
Here’s how we met Brett: During the course of the evening, my friend noted that Brett was seated at the table next to us. We introduced ourselves to him. He was so gracious; he came over to our table and talked with us for a while.
It was a typical hot Texas night and I eventually got myself a clean cloth napkin which I then carried around and used as a sweat mop rag, haha. Several times Brett borrowed my napkin to mop his own face and head. At one point, he stood in front of the bandstand and fanned the band with my napkin. That was so cute and funny!
Brett seemed like a really nice guy, and he’s very good-looking to boot! He has a great sense of humor and does not seem to have the “big head” complex that so many other Hollywood actors have. We laughed together and had a fun time that night. I feel blessed to have met him in person.
