Patrons of eve the restaurant on Thursday evening may have noticed a couple of famous faces in the corner of the room.

Neve Campbell, in town to film "Scream 4," shared a quiet dinner with fellow actor Matthew Lillard, said Ann Arbor resident Lori Milliman, who was also there that evening. Lillard is in the Detroit area filming Home Run Derby.

"We tried to take pics, but she covered her face two times, and then we decided to leave her alone for the rest of the evening," Milliman wrote in an email. "As she was leaving the restaurant, my friend caught her attention and we asked if we could snap a picture. She obliged. I honestly think she was surprised we didn't jump up and get in it with her!"

These are just folks with jobs (like anyone else). Granted, a bit more high profile, but nonetheless they are in town on business. We should respect their privacy, I think even the pic of Neve on this site is going over the top.

If a celeb was clearly present when walking into eve or Taco Bell, I'd make a point of leaving them alone. An odd feature of our culture of stardom is that it gives us a fair degree of permission to openly violate cultural privacy taboos in regard to chance social encounters with people we've not previously met. Besides, when not "photoshopped" for the hyper-reality of the big screen, the online world, or magazine features, these stars far too closely resemble real, actual people. This is quite disconcerting, making it harder to more fully mediate our dull daily existence through glamorous fantasy representations. Then again, if a little bird told me that Don Wert was now at eve while on an area visit, I'd hustle over in a minute with cell phone camera and autograph pen.

Why is this one of the top five stories of the day? So we have an NCAA investigation, replacing a major district's superintendent, a potential million $$ consolidation, and Neve Campbell eating food. One of these things is not like the other....

Matthew is actually in Michigan to film Home Run Derby, or Home Run Showdown as it's being renamed. No definite Scream 4 cameo. They used to date for a couple of years and are still friends.

Um, other than annoying her throughout her dinner, what purpose did that serve? If you wanted her picture, you can find thousands of them online (and better lit and composed than anything you or I could come up with.) If you specifically wanted her picture at an over-rated Midwestern restaurant, then you can just photoshop her in one. That poor woman.
