I'm looking for stories of famous men (contemporary preferred, but historical ok) who discuss being nervous when approaching or dealing with women.
Please cite sources and I will look them up.

Commencement Address Filter: Can you help me find a graduation speech (I think it was given by a celebrity, and I think at an Ivy League school) about how modern relationships have the problem of depending on one person
to be all the people
in someone's life. Other hints inside. [more inside]

I am in a unique situation. A celebrity rented my house as a residence and used it for commercial purposes under the auspices that she was owner of the home. Aside from tv usage, it has also recently come to my attention that my home has been featured prominently in a New York Times Best Selling book.
My partner and I are going 'round and 'round about this. He says we should just settle with the production and publishing company directly ourselves, and that an entertainment attorney would milk it for all it's worth, leaving us with less than if we were to negotiate with the companies directly.
I know about film and television. However, I know NOTHING about the publishing industry, or how much an owner would get paid for prominent coverage in the second of a two-part best-selling series of books.
Does anyone by any chance have any clue where or how we could procure this information?
Also, please weigh in...attorney, or no attorney?

How do we get a (music) celebrity to help promote an event in a YouTube-type video? Our community nonprofit is having a month-long event in June, and my daydream is to get some (recognizable) musician/band in a video that we could post on our very popular Facebook page. Ideally, he/she would say something like, "If I weren't on tour in [wherever] right now, I'd definitely be at [event name]! Don't miss it!" How do I even attempt this? I'm in a medium-sized city on the East Coast.

A friend of my partner has decided to have a celebrity-theme fancy dress party for her birthday. Help me – a short, round, very non-celebrity looking lady – come up with some sort of costume. [more inside]

I think the optician who sold us glasses today played a devil in a 90s movie but he won't admit to it. How can I figure out if I'm right if I don't know his name? [more inside]

I'm looking for a B&W 70s picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger in a tuxedo with a large buck-toothed grin and bad hair backstage after winning an award (for, I assume, Stay Hungry
in 1977). [more inside]

I, the accidental paparazzo: the celebrity I shot at Central Park wants to use my pictures. Do I negotiate some financial compensation or just sign the release in exchange for having my name on the photo credits? [more inside]
