Today, Mary went to lunch with a couple of colleagues at a restaurant across from her office called Le Monde. Who should be sitting at the table directly across from Mary? Cynthia Nixon, most famous as one of the gals in "Sex and the City."
The only reason Mary recognized her was because she heard her voice. Her appearance certainly wouldn't have given her away. (Perhaps she was just trying to be incognito--we'll give her the benefit of the doubt. Let's just say she didn't resemble the photo here!)
She was having lunch with an elderly woman. Mary thought for a moment about asking for her autograph but decided against it--not that big of a fan of hers, although she certainly is a fine actress and has been honored for her work many times.
