Buzz and his wife were incredibly nice to everybody. He wore the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the event. Bestowed by the President, the Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian honor awarded in the United States.
At one point, a young actress who clearly didn’t know who Buzz was approached the astronaut and asked how he got his medal?
Buzz responded confidently, “Perfect attendance.”
At that moment, Halle Berry walked by and added, “And he walked on the moon.”
The young girl laughed, “Yeeeahhh right! Wouldn’t that be cool?”
Buzz just gave her a smile, “The coolest.”
