"The best encounter we had was with Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek who I recognised at dinner one night sitting at the next table. The resemblance was a bit too uncanny…so I went over to start a conversation with him. “Excuse me, are you Slavoj Žižek?” I asked. “Unfortunately, yes,” he responded. He was very affable and we had a far-ranging conversation with him while waiting for his food to arrive that included observations about his documentary, film, modern day imperialism and slavery, Filipino history — no doubt just some of the flotsam and jetsam in his mind. He was with a much younger woman, and an online search later confirmed she was his third wife and an impressive person in her own right."
