As for Reilly, 39, he says his work as a character actor has rendered him utterly approachable to fans, but that's okay with him. "Ninety-nine times out of 100, it's something really positive when people come up to you," he says. "People say, 'You probably get sick of hearing this, but I love you, man.' I never get sick of that. You can never hear you're a good actor too many times. It's nice. There are worse things to be famous for. You could be O.J. Simpson, walking around, and people singling you out for something negative."
Andy's New York Minutes
Tennis champ Andy Roddick is busy kicking butt at the U.S. Open right now (he bested Spaniard Tommy Robredo in straight sets Tuesday night to advance to the quarterfinals), but when it's all over you may see him out and about in New York City. "I have a pretty good groove in the city," he tells us. "I'm not one to sit in my room and order room service. I should be able to find something to do in New York City, right? I don't really do the hotspots. I like going out to dinner and just bumming around the city, people-watching and walking around. People notice me, but people in New York are great. If they say, 'Hey, what's up?' and you say, 'Hey,' they're fine with it. That's cool. Then they have a story."

We hear all the time about actresses feeling left out of Hollywood once they're past a certain age, but at 50, Kim Basinger is still gorgeous, has a starring role in the thriller Cellular (opening Sept. 10), and in general, "wouldn't be in my 20s (again) if you handed me my 20s tomorrow," she says. Why? Wisdom. "You know, I had such an Opie kind of thing about me in a way," says Basinger of her younger days. "It was a real naivete. If I regret anything, it would be that I was so naive. I could've just avoided a lot of things had (I not had) that naivete with people. But do I regret anything? Not a thing. I've been one of the luckiest people, one of the luckiest girls in the world as far as I'm concerned."
