According to Parker Posey, the best thing about being famous isn't all the free shit—it's that your friend's dog won't get in trouble for biting a girl. "She was totally freaking out, and she wanted to go to the emergency room and everything. She was stoned, you know?" Parker explained to New York mag. "But then she recognized me, and it just changed the whole temperature of things. She was like, "Oh, my God, I love you," and everything was fine. That's what's good about being a celebrity."
