To hell with them. Nothing hurts if you don’t let it.

"I have seen them! And spoken to them! Listen: When Pam heard that Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh were at Helford she said: “Let’s cycle there and see if we’re luckier this time than you were on Thursday.” We went in the morning and arrived at the Ferry Boat Inn at about 11am. I asked the receptionist if it was possible to see Mr Olivier and Miss Leigh - and as I spoke they came into the foyer, looking exactly as they do in their films. We gazed at them, and were transfixed. “These two young ladies would like to see you,” the receptionist said. Both Olivier and Leigh turned to us. “And where have you come from?” Olivier asked, with a wonderful smile. As Pam didn’t speak I had to, though I didn’t think I could, my heart was beating so fast.
"We cycled here from Falmouth and we’d like your autographs, please," I said. My voice sounded very strange to me. "You cycled all the way from Falmouth? Don’t call me to rescue you if you collapse on your way back, will you?" he said. We laughed, and handed them our autograph books, which they signed. We thanked them very much but were too overcome to say anything else. They said goodbye and walked out of the hotel. We followed in a minute or two and watched them go onto the beach and get into a rowing boat. They saw us and waved. "Want to join us?" Laurence Olivier called to us. We knew he was only joking so we just waved back and shook our heads. How I would love to have gone rowing with Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, but my legs wouldn’t have made it as far as the boat, as I felt quite weak in the knees with excitement. For the rest of the day I could think of nothing else, and I had to describe every detail of what had taken place between me and two of the most famous film stars in the world to everyone I met."
