ME: Well, I don't mind folks asking for autographs since it doesn't
happen that often.  But I've been in public with folks like John
Travolta and Jay Leno who get mobbed to the point where they can't go
about their business.  That can get annoying.  I guess a good rule of
thumb is that they don't like it if it interferes with them eating the
meal they're eating or going wherever they're going.  But it can vary
from person to person.  I know celebrities who get antsy if they don't
get recognized and will do things to call attention to themselves.
