The New York Times has a great story from Peter Facinelli where he talks about all of his time flying back and forth across the world and the people that he encounters on his travels. it is really coool :)
I’m very inconspicuous when I fly. Even though I’m on the TV show “Nurse Jackie,” and played Carlisle Cullen in the “Twilight” series, it’s not like I’m easily recognizable. I’m just a guy on a flight. I don’t look like my Twilight character. I’m not that pale or blond. When I’m traveling alone, I usually don’t get that double-take from fellow passengers saying, “Oh my God, it’s that ‘Twilight’ guy.”
I remember being on a plane and the woman sitting next to me was reading “Twilight.” She looked really engrossed, and I kept thinking that maybe I should introduce myself to her. But I didn’t. It would have been a little weird. I’ve also never even watched any of the “Twilight” movies while flying. If one is showing, I just kind of duck down low and go to sleep.
Sometimes when I am recognized, I wish I hadn’t.
Since flying is my time to relax, I’m not one to really chat with seatmates. When waiting for a flight, I kill time playing Words With Friends. I really get into the zone. I was so into the zone once that I didn’t realize it was time to board a flight. Someone tapped me on the shoulder and I jumped up. I may have screamed a little. So did he. But he did recognize me, which was embarrassing. He just wanted to tell me he was a fan.
