  • My sister and I worked at an auditorium where the WWE came to do house shows frequently. She asked a rather large man who was otherwise inconspicuously hanging out in the shadowy end of the lobby if he was a wrestler. He flat out told her that he was not. I told her, "That's not how you do it. Watch me." I approached him and asked if he was wrestling. He said, "We'll see." I left it at that. An hour later, he walked out to the ring as the wrestler known as Adam Bomb. I've also been down into the locker room, where the wrestlers, for the most part, were pleasant people. They are mostly just somebody's dad, making a living. Other than the wrestlers, I've met radio DJ's, politicians (no one worth identifying by name) and some other celebrity types along the way.
  • No, I cannot say that I have.
  • Yes. He was a fairly famous Canadian from B.C. You probably never heard of him.
  • Yes and in no particular order: Morgan Freeman, William Shatner, Donna Mills, Alex Haley, Eli Manning...a few others not as recognizable.
  • Yes,a few.
  • Yes, I was very active in the Science Fiction conventions of the 1970's and some of my costume designs won prizes. I met several authors and Star Trek crew members.
  • I haven't, but my son met jack Nickelson, right here in our crappy city. He was making the movie Ironweed. He got 2 autographs and gave one to me. Can that count???
  • I once went to a church meeting where Dale Evans and Roy Rogers were speaking. My friends and I got there late and were standing just outside the sanctuary door, in sort of a foyer. Dale was about to go on and had to enter through the door we were standing at. She gave us a big smile and said hi or something friendly. She seemed really nice in that five seconds of waiting with her. lol Then once when I was a little older, I rode a roller coaster at Magic Mt. When it was over, I saw a whole group of young girls screaming and chasing somebody. I just got a glimpse of him, but saw that it was Mario Lopez. Later that day, I saw him again, with a girl he was apparently on a date with, being hounded again for autographs. I was too shy, so made my little brother get one for me. Most recently, I just attended a rally where Alan Autry and Arnold Schwarzenegger both spoke. That was pretty cool, because I had my three sons with me and the crowd was really nice. They encouraged them to get up to the front row, about 20 ft or so from the podium, because they knew the kids wanted to see The Terminator! Plus it was cool because I actually had my good camera with me and was able to get some great shots of both of them. I just wish we'd been able to stay until the end so the kids could have gotten autographs or a hand shake. My oldest was thrilled because Arnold pointed at him from stage as he was grinning from ear to ear and waving frantically. lol Anyway, that's as close to stardom as I've ever gotten. Pretty sad huh? lol
  • I know (and trained with once upon a time) some UFC guys. Knew Evan Tanner, drank beer with him, although he probably wouldn't have remembered me. RIP Know a few published authors.
  • Yes, several. Mostly simply due to places I've lived, jobs I've had and things that I have done regarding music and such.
  • I've met quite a few. Vincent Price, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Stephen King, Stan Rice, Bill Clinton, Amy Carter. I met several Germans who were supposed to be famous, but I had never heard of them before or since. They must only be famous in Germany.
  • My friend has a famous relative, she played in A Time To Kill as Samuel Jackson's wife, I met her and she was really nice. And I met the hosts of 106 and park, Terrance and Rocsi. They come to my friend's school all the time lol.
  • Fritz Wetherby (most wouldn't know him unless you're from nearby here I suppose), of course my 5th grade math teacher was Steven Tyler's sister
  • Some of the people I work with are pretty famous in some circles. Greg Ayres, Monica Rial (most people know her and don't know it), Chris Ayres, etc.
  • John & Jim Belushi were childhood playmates. I sold rare coins to John Denver. I met countless musical "stars" in my rock'n'roll days. I met a number of actors and comedians at various times of my life. Aside from that ... nope ... no one in particular. ;-)
  • Gerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead stayed with us for a week when I was small, but I didn't know he was famous, I just thought he looked like Santa Clause.
  • Sure have! I won't mention names, but can tell you that they struggle with the same things you and me do. We all pull the handle the same way.
  • I met Joe Frazier heavy weight boxing champion in 2007. He was signing boxing gloves for fire fighters and I got to sit down on a fire truck with him and shake his hand. i asked him to sign the glove to my dad "To my buddy Pete" and he was like "Buddy? Buddy is what i call my dog! I'll sign in pal." and I was like "Joe he likes it signed 'to my buddy'" and the fire chief was like "You don't tell Joe Frazier what to do, Joe Frazier tells YOU what to do!" and I was like "good point". He signed it pal.
  • Yes, I've met many well-known magicians as a result of my interest in the art of magic. Possibly the most well-known, in England at least, would be Paul Daniels, and Ali Bongo.
  • Way back in the 70s, Leslie Neilson was doing commercials for the Bank of Montreal, and was filming at the branch where my mother worked ... I had lunch with him and the bank staff and filming crew ... my first name is also Leslie, and we talked at length until he finally had to get back to filming ... __________ ... the day after seeing him in concert, I was in a restaurant when I heard a child's voice say, "... uncle Alice ..." I turned to look, and at the table behind me was Alice Cooper and a birthday party that I had been trying to ignore.
  • Yes.......many times. They are just people I like for who they really are, and I guard their privacy as my own.
  • I've met many. Musicians, actors, athletes...
  • Yes, I have met many of the greats of Australian rock, have some as email friends. But the most famous person I ever met is Bishop Festo Kivengere of Uganda. He was responsible for the bringing down of Idi Amin. A magnificent man. I did shake his hand. It was an honour.
  • uh, well 2 of our family friends just got signed on for the NBA...but it's weird thinking of them being famous...
  • He's not doing much now, but I met Tony Orlando once. Even had a picture with him.
  • Erm, I had breakfast with one of the members of 80s hairmetal band Firehouse one morning (he and his brother were driving through Virginia and stopped at the convenience store I was working at during midnight shift). We started talking about music and then after my shift we went across the street for breakfast while I waited for my brother to get off work so I could drive us home. It was pretty cool, until he offered to sign a cd for me and I had to admit the only CD in my car at that moment was from Slayer hehe! Oh, and I stood stupidly and stared at John Corbett once in the parking garage at the Sea-Tac airport. He smiled and went back to helping his driver load his baggage into the trunk. Lame stories, I know! LOL :D
  • I've met several presidents -- Carter, Reagan, Nixon and Ford. My father was Secret Service and they would often show up for things or invite us to "family" type events at the White House. I've met "Johnny Rotten" from the Sex Pistols. We were staying at the same hotel in Amsterdam. I've met some famous soccer player in first class on a plane, but I don't remember his name because I meant nothing to me as I know nothing about soccer. Everyone else was bugging him for autographs though. I met Vincent Price and had dinner with him while in college. I could have met Clinton in an International VIP Lounge, but my husband flipped him off so he didn't come join us. (thinking...thinking...thinking...) I apparently met several famous European actors at the Bavarian Film Company, but I have no idea who they were or what they did. Oh, and I ran into Johnny Depp at a shop in France. He looked kind of dirty. LOL Oh...and Arthur Mitchell. That was a thrill for me, but you probably have no idea who he is. He accepted my daughter into one of his residency programs. I had hopes he'd hire her eventually, but I didn't realize at the time that he made a policy of only hiring African Americans. Oh well. It was still a thrill for her to get the benefit of his instruction. I think that's it.
  • I met Delta Goodrem when she was going through chemo for her cancer. I worked in the chemotherapy department of the hospital. Got to know her quite well. She was such a brave and upbeat girl. I just realized, you might not know her in USA. She is a famous singer here in Australia.

  • yes i met Tommy steele in the 70,s also little and large, cannon and ball who are british commedians.:)
  • When I worked at a radio station in the late 80's I met a lot of the bands who came to town for concerts. They would come to the station for on-air interviews before the shows and I would get my picture taken with them. A few that stand out in my head are, Janie Lane and Steven Sweet from "Warrant", Jack Blades from "Night Ranger", Sebastian Bach from "Skid Row", Jack Russell from "Great White". I also met John Schneider (Bo Duke) outside his hotel when he was in town for a concert. And when I was at the Harrisburg Car Show, I was in the Ladies Room and washed my hands in the sink next to Leann Hunley (Anna DiMera from Days of Our Lives) and we talked. She was so sweet. My sister was working for a local politician's campaign and they had a reception. I attended the reception and met Patrick Kennedy. He was such a gentleman and very personable. Just last month I got to meet Peter Noone (Herman from Herman's Hermits) backstage at the Casino I work at. My God that man has soooo much energy on stage! He is really quite the comedian too! My sisters and I just loved him!

Oh yeah, and I grew up playing with John Belushi (the weird Armenian kid at the opposite end of the block).

  • Once, way back when on Martha's Vineyard I was 3 passes down from JT on a doobie and I worked for one day in a recording studio with Jim Henson.
  • Hmm.. I was in france and I was taking pictures of the scenery, when pierce brosnan came up to me and yelled at me because he thought i was taking pictures of him.

  • When I was in china last... oh, wait, 2 years ago now, I met Jackie Chan, had a bit of a chat with him.(yay!! he's awesome). owen wilson and Kate hudson were at mcdonalds here in Gympie one day a couple years ago when I was there with my family. Also at a special children's christmas party around 4,5 years ago I met... I cant quite remember his name, but he played Toadie(or whatever it was) on 'Neighbours'. also met Ziyi Zhang, too, around 2,3 years ago. I also met Australia's Governor-General, before she was Governor-General. I've ran into her a few times, and we stop to have a chat. as well as Prime-Minister Kevin Rudd, and former Prime Minister John Howard. also Matt Welsh(i think it was), a former Australian Gold Medallist Olympian swimmer, who has competed in many olympics in his time.

I also met (Jimmy) Seals and (Dash) Crifts a couple of times and when I was a kid I believe my parents had Dizzy Gellespie over for coffee.
  • Depech Mode or however the hell those 'tards spell their technoband, and a few baseball players...never gave a rat's ass about any of them. All of that was over a decade ago when I was driving a taxicab...I have far better taxi stories than celeb encounters lol.
  • I've met Colin Quinn, Jeffrey Ross, and Leeanne Tweeden... Seen Obama at a distance but so has probably 10% of the country. Oh yeah and I met 4 star general Peter Pace and The previous commandant of the Marine Corps, General Hagee. (his handshake feels like a giant sack of hotdogs). I barly missed a chance to meet Chuck Norris.

  • I was once babysat by John Butler's sister, Jane, and had a massive crush on her that she apparently encouraged.
  • He wasn't famous at the time, but I once hung out with Eddie Vedder at a club while I was waiting for a friends boyfriends band to be done with their set. He was a pretty cool guy.
  • Eric Bana and Heath Ledger. I met Eric Bana in Melbourne at a charity Race Day. He was with his wife and children, just milling around and enjoying himself. He has a very dirty and self-deprecating sense of humour, which I naturally found utterly charming. I had met Heath Ledger a few times over the years. His sister, Kate, and my ex-boyfriend are still close friends. He was a lovely person. Very down to earth and sweet natured. I still can't quite believe he's gone.
  • I've said Hi to Meryl Streep & she said hello & signed my photo. & also I've talked to Madonna & gotten her autograph & I've talked to Madonna's publicist Liz Rosenberg through email.
  • Apparently, when I was a baby, my parents were at a function at the US embassy in Moscow, and for some reason John Denver was there, promoting some collaboration with Jim Henson that was going to be allowed in the Soviet union (actually, maybe it was East Berlin, I need to recheck my facts). The legend goes that John had had a couple too many and had spotted me, the only baby around, and thought I was pretty cute. He then asked my mother to hold me and he walked around showing me to people and asking me how cute I was. I have a picture, but I really wish I could remember that.
