A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the AFIs by Andrew Rodgers
From Zap2It - January 6th, 2002
The Naked Truth: Michelle Trachtenberg, the 16-year-old "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" co-star, seems to have a really healthy approach to awards shows.
"Who doesn't like shiny things," she joked. Asked why she was interested in attending this particular awards show, though, Trachtenberg came clean.
"I totally came here to scope out the people," she said. "I just met Ron Howard. I was such a dork. It was along the lines of, 'Hi. I'm sorry, I just wanted to meet you.' He's absolutely amazing. I'm a great fan of his work, and I was such a big dork. I'll be reflecting on it tonight when I actually have my mental stability back -- I'll be like, 'Oh God, what did I do?'"
