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."

#Truth.

Witherspoon acutally IS a big star, Spade...not so much. If it werent for Adam Sandler (putting this guy in all his movies) he'd never work again. That being said I actually like Spade, and Witherspoon, I just think he's no one to talk.

Spade. Like calling the kettle black. You actually did the same thing to a friend mine in Tucson, AZ years ago. "I'm David Spade." Her reply, "Yeah, right." Then walked away from you. I guess a guy has got to do what he has to do to get the ladies.

You don't have to have awards to be famous or to be recogizable. I would recognize Spade before I would Reese Witherspoon walking down the street or anywhere for that matter.
Eddie Murphy gets nominations but doesn't win awards...I guess that doesn't make him famous
Comedians rarely get respect with awards for movies or TV.

David Spade is the newest pro for Anti-Hero. I can't believe you people give a **** about this story, and nobody is mentioning David can do sick kick flips. What is going on with this country anyway!?
