Actor Jack Black regrets meeting his musical hero, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, because the singer couldn't have been less impressive.
The Shallow Hal star hailed Yorke a musical God but was left feeling deflated when he met the musician in the flesh - because he "was not into it".
And now Black insists people shouldn't try to befriend their heroes to avoid disappointment.
The 38-year-old says, "He was not into it. All my heroes: not into it when I approach them! What do you hope to get from it? What you hope, even if you don't admit it, is that they will like you and want to be your friend.
"(That's) totally unrealistic and not fair to them. Just leave them alone! Because you're going to enjoy them the same amount from over here, where you never meet them." (CAM/WNBTIS/LR)
