Meeting Movie Legend Charlton Heston
Just recently I found out that he had met Marilyn Monroe once at a Golden Globe Awards ceremony! I was delighted! Not only had they actually met, although they never appeared in a movie together, but they also were honored with a Golden Globe Award of the same category at the same time. On March 5, 1962 Charlton Heston and Marilyn Monroe got the Henrietta Award (a special Golden Globe award) for being the “World’s Favorite Stars.”
Since I was a teenager I wanted to meet my favorite actor and tell him how much I admire him and his work. I could hardly believe my luck.
So, I met Charlton Heston. He was very friendly and nice, and a very tall and overall impressive person. He gave me the prize and we had a warm conversation. When we said goodbye he wished me good luck for my acting career.
Now Charlton Heston is no longer with us, but his legacy will live on.
