I've been watching some con vids and the ones of the Jus in Bello con in Rome were pretty high quality, so I kept watching. Then I heard Jensen saying that some girl at the London con actually jumped on him and tried to kiss him and I started thinking how these girls/screaming creatures treat the actors like a piece of meat. Imagine being on the subway and some random guy leaping at you and licking your face. I'd kick him in the nuts and probably be scarred for life, 'cause I'd expect random strangers to just invade my personal space in this incredibly rude and unpredictable manner. He said that he 'forearmed' her, meaning that he blocked her movement and he was nice enoug to then worry about having harmed her. Wow.
I mean screaming and throwing plushies and writing long, sappy letters and bidding 3000$ for a Tshirt someone signed might be a little immature/irrational, but at least it's harmless. This, to me, goes way beyond what 'being a fan' means, and I probably would have sued her for it. The crassest thing was that most of the people who commented on that vid said something along the lines of: "If I had the courage, I'd do it, too." Man, if being famous means that people think they have a right to touch you (and not just with their hands either), that you are obliged to tell them every little thing that's going on in your life and they can film you everywhere, than I'll start being glad I'm just little old me.
Also, I found this crazy discussion http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0460681/boar
I wonder if these so-called fans have wasted one thought on the way they treat the people they claim to 'love'. Is it so hard to figure out that nobody wants to be jumped on, licked by strangers, have his wife bullied by a bunch of screaming lunatics or denied a family life just cause some delusional nutjob wants to be in a relationship with a film character? I never understood how it gets any more likely that some random fan will ever be in a relationship with an actor if said actor is single anyway... Those people who claim to 'love' the Js only know the roles they play, the few random things they share at cons and their looks, they don't know the first thing about them personally. Wow, that's gotta be true "love".
People find it freaky how involved I get with the show, but I just enjoy a good plot, good actors, and the brotherly bantering (and yeah, the Js aren't hard on the eyes). I don't think I know them, I don't begrudge their wives' their happiness, I don't claim to love them and if I ever met them I'd certainly not jump them or run them down for not taking the 300th picture of the day with me. If I had the courage, I'd just tell them that I like their show and that I watch it with my roomies. And that would pretty much make my day.
