Playboy interview with Steve Martin

From that Longreads treasure trove of Playboy interviews, here’s one with Steve Martin.

PLAYBOY: But you give out business cards instead of autographs.

MARTIN: It’s a way to deal with it quickly and not to be rude. Most of the times that people ask for autographs, it’s a way of proving that they saw you. I know this from when I asked for autographs. People always want to know, “What’s he like? Did he say anything funny? Was he nice?” You have thirty seconds to be all those things. My card covers it all: It says that you found me nice, you found me funny and you found me charming and friendly.
