Boy Intent on Question
BIGTIME US actors have a habit of leaving fans swooning.
But Criminal Intent know-it-all Vincent D'Onofrio, who was in Melbourne this week, had women and young boys alike speechless.
We hear the star of the Law and Order series had more than his fair share of female attention during his stay here.
Triple M Shebang host Fifi Box flew down from Sydney especially to do an interview face to face and even admitted being lost for words for once in her life.
But the prize for most eager fan goes to a young boy who saw D'Onofio dining in a Chapel St restaurant on Tuesday night.
Digital camera in hand, the boy nervously asked if he could do an interview for a school project.
D'Onofrio, who obviously went to the Matt Damon school of celebrity charm, obliged.
But the boy was apparently so jittery with butterflies, he asked D'Onofrio the same silly question three times ("So, do you like being on the show?") with his voice breaking repeatedly.
Poor kid. Hope he's not considering a career as a TV journo.
