David Spade

Hey Reese Witherspoon ...

YOU'RE NOT THAT FAMOUS!

Reese Witherspoon learned the hard way -- if you have to tell someone, "Do you know who I am?" ...  you're NOT as famous as you think you are, this according to David Spade.

Spade was leaving Boa Steakhouse in Hollywood last night when we asked if there's ever a good time for a star to drop the "I'm a really big deal" schtick ( a la Reese) ... and the "Rules of Engagement" star gave it to us straight.

"If you have to explain to someone you're famous, then you're technically not that famous."

David Spade is awesome. He almost ran me over leaving the set of "8 simple rules" a few years ago and stopped to see if I was ok and apologized. He's a cool dude.

Celebrities get so used to getting in and out of things that they expect special treatment everywhere they go. Pathetic!

For all the idiots who don't know David Spade. He has been in many really funny sitcoms and is as sharp as a tack. For the rest of you who just didn't get what he said-----grow a brain. Loved his comment.

David makes a good point. If you have to tell people you're famous, are you really famous?
