TV talent judge Simon Cowell had the honor of meeting Buffy The Vampire Slayer stunner Sarah Michelle Gellar - but failed to recognize her. The controversial adjudicator on hit TV show American Idol was approached by the Hollywood babe, who he now claims is a fan of his. But evidently Cowell couldn't return the compliment - he didn't even know who she was. The impresario says, "We were talking and I honestly hadn't got a clue who she was. She was saying how much she loves American Idol and how she was a fan of mine. Then she asked me to sign an autograph for her. I had to say, 'Sorry, what was your name?' and someone else who was standing with us said, 'That's Sarah Michelle Gellar' I said, 'Who?' and they said 'She plays Buffy!' I said, 'Sorry, you've lost me.' They had to explain to me who she was."
