Actor Jeff Goldblum wasn't worried when he encountered immigration problems entering Israel, because he knew he could call on the country's consul general to give him a helping hand. The Independence Day star encountered trouble when he was told there was a problem with his passport, meaning he wouldn't be able to travel from America to Israel. But after making a few calls, Goldblum was joined by the consul general himself in less than 10 minutes. He says, "In 10 minutes the consul was there with me. We go back up to the desk. The consul general said, 'Here is my stamp. Jeff can go any place he wants.' "I didn't want to say I told you so, but I was inwardly pleased."
