"Around 12 years ago I photographed the opening of a salon at Bergdorf Goodman. Molly Ringwald was there & I asked to her to pose. She said yes & we walked over to a private area to do the shoot. Before I started to click I told her that Sixteen Candles was my all time favorite movie. She gave me a NASTY look & stormed away. A minute or so later the event organizer came over to me with 2 security guards & told me that I offended Ms. Ringwald & she wanted me thrown out. I explained what I said & was told it didn't matter, she wanted me out & I had to go. I said fine, I'll leave on my own & he said that Ms. Ringwald insisted she be able to watch me be escorted out with the security guards. It was humiliating, to say the least. I still remember the nasty/gloating smile on her face as I walked past her, with a security guard on either side of me. That is probably my most memorable (not in a good way) celebrity experience as a photographer." -- Steven Bergman
