Last night at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s “Enduring Vision” benefit at Cipriani Wall Street, Vulture asked the attendees for their favorite story about Sir Elton. Bryan Batt, without having ever met the dude, had the best one: “We briefly made eye contact. This is the eighties, I want to say. I was studying at Circle on the Square, and it was at some video store in Times Square and we kind of, like, made eye contact. I thought, That’s Elton John! But we didn’t meet.” For more celebrities talking celebrities, click through our Party Lines slideshow.
