Say what you will about funny man Jay Leno. I’ve met him so many times in bizarre situations from a grocery store to spotting him on the street while in a moving vehicle and he’s a very cool guy – always taking time to be nice to fans. So many people that are much less recognizable could surely take a lesson or two from Jay. Happy birthday Mr. Leno!
Also born today: actresses Ann-Margaret, Penelope Cruz and Jessica Alba.

Jay Leno and G
I love LA! I was driving down the street with some friends and we noticed that something was being filmed on the corner of Gardner and Melrose. It turned out that it was a segment for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. As we approached the stop light, the four of us in the car caught his attention and we all waved to Jay. He waved back! I’ve met Jay Leno on many occasions and he is definitely one of the nicest guys around. I got out of the car and chatted with Jay for a moment and he graciously took a picture with me. When our encounter was finished, I got back in the car and we zoomed off to our next destination. Thanks again Jay for being one of the most recognizable faces out there and still remaining to be one of the nicest!
