Henry Winkler reveals how lonely he felt on the set of The Mary Tyler Moore Show
October 15th, 2020 under Drew Barrymore, Henry Winkler. [ Comments: none ]


If you ask anyone who is the nicest star in Hollywood, then they will tell you it is Henry Winkler. However, he told Drew Barrymore on her show today that during his first role, he was surrounded by actors who were not to nice to him.

Winkler made his professional acting debut on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. He played Rhoda’s date at one of Mary’s failed dinner parties. Since no was expecting him to be there, he sat at his only little table. They say that art mimics life, and it did for him.

“I had four lines on ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show,’ which was the ‘Friends’ of its time. And they said, ‘Lunch,’ and all these big stars they all went to lunch, and I was just in the middle of the soundstage, and I had no idea where to go, no one had told me,” the actor said. “I felt really alone, and I swore I would never let anybody on a set I was on feel that way ever again. No matter what show I do, if there is a guest, I take that guest man or woman by the hand and show them where they can get anything done during the day.”

That is why, everyone but Tom Hanks, loves him. He is so caring and warm, and I am grateful I experienced his kindness firsthand on my first job in Hollywood. When you look at him, you cannot help but to feel joy. It radiates off of him, and you feel encapsulated by it. I don’t know how better to describe it, but he is someone you have to meet to understand what a kind-hearted soul he is. He was one of the biggest stars in the ’70s and ’80s, but he does not act like he is better than anyone, no matter how low down they are on the totem pole.

We need more stars like him. There are a few like Drew Barrymore, Jerry O’Connell, Sean Astin, and Kal Penn, but we need more of them.

You have to be a special kind of awful for Henry Winkler to make fun of you!
June 22nd, 2020 under Donald Trump, Henry Winkler. [ Comments: none ]


If you ask anyone, but Tom Hanks, who is the nicest guy in Hollywood, then they will tell you it is Henry Winkler. Therefore, you have to be really horrible for The Fonz to make a video mocking you.

Well, Donald Trump is that atrocious, so it makes the sense that the actor would make a video mocking the reality star. Winkler wanted to show the world that he has no problem drinking a glass of water with just one hand. Something Trump spent the whole week perfecting before his failed rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

You can say this video was Arthur Fonzerelli’s way of telling Trump to sit on it.

There is another way that Winkler gets under Trump’s skin. Both men are the same age and only one of them still has a gorgeous head of hair that doesn’t require a can of hairspray every day.

We need to stay inside to protect Henry Winkler!
May 8th, 2020 under Coronavirus, Henry Winkler. [ Comments: none ]


States are beginning to open up again, but that doesn’t mean it is safe to return to life as it was in 2019. There are a lot of reasons to avoid situations that could put us at risk, and protecting others who are more vulnerable to coronavirus is one of the top reasons. We need to make sure that people like Henry Winkler get all the tomorrows they deserve.

As Winkler says in this video for the California Governor, “The beauties of California, they’re all going be there once this is all over.” The flowers might still be there, but one of the nicest guys in Hollywood might not be if we don’t wear masks, wash our hands, and practice social distancing.

Remember when you were a kid and used to think people had cooties, pretend that they still do.

I will end this post with some wise words from the Fonz on Happy Days that are relevant for today’s world, “Sit on it!” If we do more of that at home today, we will be closer to going back to normal sooner rather than later.

BTWF: Kelly Clarkson on Sabrina the Teenage Witch
November 7th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Henry Winkler, Kelly Clarkson. [ Comments: none ]


(Starts and ends at 4:43 in)
Before Kelly Clarkson was the American Idol, she was an extra on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. How awwwdorable was the 19-year-old in that 2002 episode?

Today on The Kelly Clarkson Show, she was reunited with that episode’s director, Henry Winkler. The Fonz told her that he saw something special in the singer and that is why she had a little more to do than the other extras. He knew before we all did that this girl was going to be a star! I guess you can the director has an eye for it. Maybe ABC should hire him to direct American Idol?

Hollywood nice guys Henry Winkler and Tom Hanks don’t get along
October 4th, 2019 under Andy Cohen, Henry Winkler, Tom Hanks. [ Comments: none ]


When you think of Hollywood’s nicest actors, Henry Winkler and Tom Hanks’ names immediately come to mind. However, these two men do not get along.

Yesterday, when The Fonz was on Watch What Happens Live, a caller wanted to know if it is true that he and Kip Wilson had a falling out when they worked together on Turner & Hooch in the late ’80s. Turns out Winkler was hired to direct the film and on the lucky 13th day, Jeffrey Katzenberg sent him home never to return again.

Andy Cohen asked him that is true, Winkler said, “I got along great…great with that dog.” Then he added, “I love that dog.”

Of course, he said it in the nicest way possible because when it comes to Hollywood’s nicest guy, he is tops on that list. Followed by Jerry O’Connell. Hanks used to be third, but now he is going to be slipping a few notches after this reveal.

We need to get these two men together and have them reconcile. I feel like if they can’t make it work, no one else can. How can we expect peace in the Middle East if these two cannot be bosom buddies? I feel like all of my happy days just became sad ones.

On that note, I wonder if Hanks has had an issue with Winkler because he kicked his a$$ during their 1982 fight on Happy Days. Never saw their epic fight, then click here!
