Just got back from a quick lunch break, first one i've had in 6 months not at the desk. I'm a 25yro quant trader/geek at a well known hedge fund in NYC and I pull in around $250k-$500k, all in, depending on the year. I was just at a bar downtown and this well known 23yro actress came in (not going to say who). Not knowing she was THE actress, I told her she looked like a gorgeous famous actress when she and her friend sat near me. (HINT: She was in a popular spy tv series) I know I know, you think i'm fucking crazy.

For about 15 mins she never revealed who she REALLY was and we just talked for a bit. I was in a pretty nice suit and she asked me where I worked and if I was one of those "tech start up boys, rags-to-riches" type thing before telling me she worked in "entertainment". I said no, I worked in finance.

So anyways, still not knowing who she really was, I asked for her number. She gave it to me. Didn't want to be bullshitted, I called her right then to make sure it was legit and so she had my number as well. Then I got up to leave... and some nearby NYU college kids started hounding her like asking her for an autograph and shit. She turns to me and smiles then looks away and im walking out the door like HOLY SHIT.

SO.....tell me right now that was all some upcoming reality show where actresses try to land dates with normal people. but what the fuck was that? would a famous actress really consider some up-and-coming finance asshole like us?

This is why you don't call back on the same night. Don't be this guy.

5/10/12

you amateurs. if the chick is willing to bang you it doesn't matter if you wait 3 hrs, 3 days or 3 fortnights to call back.

OP, go split this cockholster in half and make some good use out of your god-given sex rod.

What country is she from?

I'm surprised you didn't recognize Angela Lansbury until she left the bar. Did her phone number have a street address in it and require the help of an operator to function properly?

Why'd you throw your comp in there?

HAHAHA... he was just adding a data point for all the college kids to go crazy over

I'm betting my job on that it was Fonseca. he said she was 23. fonseca is 24. close enough. one of them is lying about the age for anonymity.

It wasn't Gabrielle Anwar from Burn Notice was it?

lol this thread is cracking me up. Good thing you threw your comp in there so we can advise you when to call her.

Agree with posts above, get off the internet and get a hold of this chick.

Funny story of my own - I lived relatively close to a well-known actress and happened to see her every once in awhile leaving my building. Ended up getting her number and going out for a drink a few times. I think "famous people" like having a normal connection to people but it became pretty clear there was no chance of anything happening, especially when she moved out of the city not too long ago. I think in a way though people in entertainment and whatever are drawn to Wall Street guys so it's definitely not impossible. I also didn't know who she was until a buddy of mine told me when he saw me with her. Go for it man.

Dammit BH, as if we (the WSO-chat community) didn't already have reason enough to believe you're secretly (on your way to becoming) The Most Interesting Man in the World! Kudos.

Provide proof through posting the voicemail greeting online.

5/11/12

He's full of shit. Why post about it, bragging to a bunch of strangers he'll never see?

5/11/12

I am certain this dude is completely full of shit, but it is true that these famous actresses typically date non-hollywood dudes. I have a good buddy of mine that that is a fairly famous actor in a tv series. As a result, I end up hanging out with a lot of other actors/actresses that he has become friends with (I'm in Socal).

Almost all of the chicks are dating regular dudes. Dudes that would shock you no less cause they aren't the 6'4" underwear models or anything like you would expect for a hot young actress. They are average guys that are actually really chill and don't care what the chick does (at least thats how almost every single one i've met has some off).

However, almost every single one of the chicks met her guy through friends and not randomly at a bar. Not saying it's impossible, but I am saying that it's super unlikely since they would have their guard up real high and would prob doubt that you don't know who they are if they're actually famous.

call tomorrow.. ok posted 5/10 so call today or asap. she'll be busy with stuff and probably wont deal with playing with the game.

like what other said.. just treat her like a normal person.
you're a finance guy vs shes an actress so currently you have the more stable income.

you said she's also up and coming so feed into her insecurities sometimes.
ask her to dinner cut the drinks crap.

i have nothing else for you.

please come back and update us.

5/11/12

can't tell if serious.. Proof and you can be inducted into the WSO hall of fame (not that I have much say :P)

I was going to say Piper Perabo but since you said 23-year old, um...not so sure. But congrats and call her!!!!

5/12/12

The OP hasn't posted anything since the thread opened. One of the more successful trolls in WSO history.

5/12/12

i like how you guys are telling him to reveal who she is or post some picture. im sure doing so would completely blow any chance he had with her if just ONE of her friends read this website and sent her the link. my hunch is still on fonseca being the actress and that he wont reveal anything until she rejects him after a few dates lol

Do 25 year quant traders really pull in $250-$500k? Sorry, I'm not knowledgeable in this aspect, but damn that's a huge compensation.

lyndsy fonseca from Nikita

But if you are full of shit, it was obvious when you put her number in your phone and didn't include her name... You say you didn't identify her until NYU kids stormed her, but what kind of dumbass doesn't ask for her name for your phone?

I don't ask for names...I usually text and call off of phone numbers.

uhhh... what?

He prob just got her first name, connor - which is pretty common. Also, even if he did get the full name, who the fuck knows who she is? You're gonna tell me you actually watch nikita?

I had to look up "women in spy shows" to find her. Even then, was pretty oblivious.

Even OP said, "You look a lot like so and so.." then a bunch of college kids knew her? She must be famous and the first name drop would have made it clear.
