It’s been something of an urban legend in the years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer , though it's been previously confirmed, that Dolly Parton was an uncredited producer of the show. Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon , Geller talked about knowing of Parton’s involvement, but not knowing how much she even knew about the show, until the singer publicly praised it, and Gellar’s performance specifically. The former Buffy Summers said…
Most of us would probably feel the same way if Dolly Parton ever said anything nice about us. It’s actually difficult to overstate just how beloved a person Dolly Parton is . While all celebrities have their fans, and many of the most popular ones earn their share of haters, Dolly, who has been a huge star for decades, seems to only have people who love her. Sarah Michelle Gellar is clearly on that list.
So it’s not that surprising that the Buffy actress would have that sort of reaction to hearing Dolly praise her work. It certainly would have been nice to hear any producer on the show say nice things, but when that producer is Dolly Parton it just means something else. Check out Gellar’s full comments in the clip below.
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s career is far from over, she's now starring in the new series Wolf Pack , so she may still do incredible work that will earn her praise from all sorts of places, but it’s probably going to be difficult to ever top hearing Dolly Parton say you do a good job.
