One of my dear friends is in almost all of the Dream Works(Shrek...etc) movies. Does that count?

I once had a quiet sit down lunch with Tim Leary.

During the filming of Lawful Citizen, Jamie Foxx used to (quietly) hang out with a few of us in weird room we used for training.

I've bumped into a few celebrities here and there. There was a time when I was banging Samantha Bond's daughter. She's the Brosnan era Ms. Moneypenny and currently in Downton Abbey.

I met Frankie Muniz a few months ago. His band came and played at my college. He looks pretty creepy these days, but he's a really cool guy.


I don't know if this counts as a celebrity, but I also met that David Henrie kid from the Disney show "Wizards of Waverly Place". He filmed a movie at my college and portrayed a character based on a student here, so he was shooting scenes all over campus. I just went up to him and said hey and took a picture and I also got to be in a scene, and that was cool. Movie premieres in March, so hopefully my scene made it in! Apparently he got super schwasted at one of our frats. No shocker there. :p

I met the guy who is on that Ice Pilots show, the CEO guy of the company thing or w/e.

He was pretty cool, wasn't a posh jackass or anything, so that was nice.

I've met Tiki Barber, a running back for the NY Giants, his driver was the mom of a girl in my class and he came to read us a book lol.

My aunt is Joan Rivers' make up artist, I've been to her house in NYC. I met her daughter, Melissa and saw Wendy Williams, met Kelly Osbourne and a super model, but I forgot her name.

I went to a MLS vs Man United game a few years ago and ended up sitting in the VIP section and walked right into Kolo Toure, currently of Liverpool.

And i guess my aunt is sort of famous, she was mentioned in People magazine as being one of the best make up artists in NYC.

Met the south african president, Jacob zuma at a wwe show. Cool dude

Met Leon schuster (one of the most famous comedians in south africa)

Some indian actor my mother told me was very famous in india. Hilthik or something.

Chris brown, asshole

Dave chappele during his public breakdown when he came to south africa.

Pablo fransisco, really funny.

I've met a lot of celebs only because my mother works with the promoters who bring them here to SA. I think I'm gonna meet Kendrick Lamar this year. Looking forward to it.

I've met Karl Sanders and George Kollias from the band Nile. They're both really nice guys.


Karl is almost childlike in a way, in that he's super friendly and gets really exited over everything. I had him autograph my copy of Those Whom The Gods Detest. I didn't get George's autograph, but I did get a picture with him.



I also had the opportunity to meet Silenoz from Dimmu Borgir, but I didn't take it. I walked into a resturaunt a block or two from the concert venue and saw him there with some other guys I didn't recognize. I considered approaching him, but I didn't do it. If he had been alone or with another member of Dimmu Borgir, I probably would have.

I met Slug \o/
Shame the random stranger I gave my camera too couldn't take a proper picture.

Slugs son went to my school. And apparently he was even at some functions. Too bad I didn't even have the slightest clue who atmosphere was until after I graduated.

Cory Booker, Ashanti and the local weatherman around my area. If you lived in my area, you'll know he's a goddamn celebrity.

I saw Dwayne Johnson sneaking through the exit line into the Haunted Mansion at Disney World a few years ago. He's a big guy.


Also sat a seat over from the mayor of my (pretty big) city at a gay choir show when I was ten. One of the guys who came with him kept giving me an awful look, like he wanted to reach over and smack me in the face or something. :/

I met Billy Joel when I was kid. He came into the Deli my mom worked at while I was there. No handshakes or anything. I've also met my congressional representative when I volunteered for his re-election campaign. Nothing special.

I've met Example, he's the biggest dance-rave act in the UK and now getting recognised in America slightly. He discovered Ed Sheeran who is now bigger than him haha. I met example at his video shoot which as 50 million views on youtube 'changed the way you kiss me'. Seen him live 4 times now.

Kelly Holmes the UK Olympic gold medalist. She lives in the town next to me so it's pretty common to see her about. I served her at my last job and dropped the last glass dinner set in the store that she was buying I was so embarrassed.

Some woman from a soap called coronation street, got a picture of her but can't remember her name. I saw Lamar and Madonna that night too but didn't meet them. Also met at work who used to play Sam Mitchell from eastenders.

So really the only major person I've met is example

A few actually I had lunch with Lance Armstrong, he actually gave me one of his Yellow Jerseys
I had lunch with him in 2007, then got to spend the day with him he is a nice guy dispite what people say.
I met Neil Finn and his band crowded house.
I got to me Elvis Costello when I was 15 I had tickets to his concert but I missed it because I needed emergency spine surgery, the nurse's and social workers see it up for him to come to my hospital room and play a song or two although I don't remember much of it because of the pain meds I needed after the surgery.
I met the guys from the band the fray
I met James Blunt he was a really cool guy I met him when he first made it big.
I also met Kevin Spacy he was staying in a hotel I was at or a ski/snowboarding camp in Aspen Colorado

The Chaser team, Ernie Dingo and Dr Karl. Basically no one anyone outside of Australia would recognize. Oh I worked at Brisbane domestic airport for a while and walked past that gross c*nt Tony Abbott coming through security. Actually I saw a bunch of politicians there, but again no one world famous.

I had a talk with Anthony Green from Circa Survive at one of his concerts.


I also had Tim Collis, the amazing guitarist of This Town Needs Guns, sign my pack of cigarettes.


That's about as close as meeting a celebrity I got. :ph34r: :ph34r:

My grandpa was the Yugoslavian boxing champion in the 50s-60s, if that counts.
I also met the North Yankton hoax guy. What a legend.

I have a habit of passing celebrities in the street, so far I've strolled past Billy Connelly, Phil Jupitus, Simon Amstell twice (whom my sister chased out of a cafe on the second occasion trying to get his autograph) and the ultimate A lister - Patsy Palmer. 


Also my parents claim I was held by the world tallest man (at the time) when I was five or six but I have no memory of that. I'm pretty sure there would be a photo if I had been, they pretty much viewed life through a camera lens when I was that age.

Bruce Springsteen on the 26th of March 2013 a couple hours before his concert. I was lucky enough to get a hand shake and for him to autograph my t shirt also at the previous concert (24th of march) he gave me his guitar pick at the end of the show! :)

I've met Jiah Khan (bollywood actress) once but she committed suicide after a few months so I don't know if I can count her. Now that I think of it, she already looked dead that night.

I've met tons of famous people, mainly through playing gigs. The only one I really cared about was Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth, an all-time guitar hero of mine. 


They're just people. People who are on TV and the radio.

When my house got flooded in 2007, Alan Johnson, who was health secretary at the time and a local MP, came into my house with a TV crew. Then he came back a year later with the TV crew for a follow up thing, but I was the only person in the house, so I just hid in the kitchen until he went away. 


I also saw Duncan Bannatyne outside King's Cross. He looked angry, so I stayed away.
