I met Chris Evans in a bar once and he was very pleasant. I met David Attenborough and unfortunately he was as snobby and pretentious as you'd expect from someone of his age and class. I met Goldie once, unfortunately he was coming down some steps at high speed as I was about to climb up them... but I still reckon it counts...

Oh yummy  :inlove:

I served Luke Wilson (the lesser popular Wilson brother lol) at the bookstore once.   I knew who he was immediately but didn't say anything,  just rang his 2 Native American history books through and pretended he wasn't an actor (I'm a goof and love the movie ''Old School')

When I went to go swipe his credit card for payment I saw written on the back in the signature line "ASK FOR ID".  I looked up at him with a questioning smile and hesitantly asked him "Do I really need to ask for your ID, cause I have a funny feeling you are who it says you are".

He was almost embarrassed and said 'no, you don't need to' and I continued to smile (smirk?) and bagged his purchases. He was almost free when a couple of girls came up and asked for a picture.   He obliged and I took it for them using their phone.

I totally taped his signed Visa slip on the cash office wall instead of sending it to head office 😆

I’ve met famous people at cons but only while asking for sketches from comic book artists and signatures from comic book authors (MLP mostly, PPG once). Oh, and Christy Marx who was sitting rather forlornly at a table with not much at it and happily signed a Jem picture and chatted with me about it for a while.

I hung out with or at least talked with a fair number of indies bands from the Osaka area and a few from Tokyo, including Daigo Naitō back when he was Daigo☆Stardust. He might not be very well known outside of Japan and the rest weren’t even well known inside Japan.  ^^;

I also had a best friend from high school who became a pretty well-known podcaster. Well known enough that he has sold books, gone on tour and branched out to other media. That’s really, really surreal. Last time I spoke with him he got me free tickets to his show but standing in line with fans to talk to a friend? Not the best feeling and there was barely any time to catch up...

Not me, but my dad. He was waiting to pick me up from school choir or something and started talking to a guy and asking how he was going and stuff without realising it was the leader of the opposition at the time (Bill Shorten). It was very funny telling my dad who he was talking to after we had left.

I'm pretty sure I was in the vicinity of a famous person today. The kids nearby started freaking out and running over to pose for pictures with them.

I have no idea who they were :silly:

And now I want to get a group of friends together and do this to a random person.

My dad was once mistaken for one of the finalists on American Idol (Taylor Hicks).  He played along and let the girls take a picture with him. :lol:

When my dad was still a long haul truck driver, he broke down on the side of the highway once. The country singer Clint Black stopped and had his mechanic look at my dad's truck. My dad at the time had no idea who he was but after that he bought all of Black's albums and became a fan. I hate country music but figure he must be a nice guy to have done that.

Lol, that would have been hilarious.

Today I got to talk to one of my academic role models about the entomology-related masters thesis I'm trying to write and it was a delightful experience! I'm not sure if she can be defined as famous, but she has written a few successful books and is quite frequently in the media in my country. I was so nervous and very surprised she showed interest in talking with me, but I think it went well!

Well I was in a car (sleeping) granny was driving and we where on our way to Harvard Illinois from central Wisconsin (like Dells area) only for a day trip - there and back to do something at a bank for my uncle Donnie who was in the passenger seat at the time. I had this strangest dream that I met Mark Wahlberg at the Restaurant Cheesecake Factory. I woke up thinking that was Odd it seemed so real. So Granny had already stopped at the bank now we need something to eat, for dinner so there is a restaurant called Kelley's Restaurant in Harvard IL. So granny is joking around, "we are going to eat some Kelly here" (Because my name is Kelly) and I said, "Oh you don't want to eat me, I'm all fatty and Ya wouldn't want that." Thankfully I said this outside of Kelley's Restaurant, because when I looked over to my Left at a booth Mark Wahlberg was sitting there Looking at us giggling at each other. I was so surprised to see him Alone. he had his laptop with him and his glasses that where the props for the movie of "All the Money in the World" where sitting by his computer. I was No Way that this is happening right now!!! Granny new nothing about him or his movies decided to walk towards him and grab a seat closest to him. I was like YESSSSS!!!!! this is my chance I walked up to him but then I decided to make it look like I was deciding my chair and I chose the chair across from him so I can have a good view while I eat, but not stare too much. there is about 5 people tops in this place not including the 2 waitresses me and Mark where the youngest in the place not including the 1 waitress. At the end of the meal when I was waiting for my granny and Uncle Donnie after I had paid (they ran to the bathroom) I was standing at the front. I was going to go introduce myself to Mark but I had no clue on what to say except Hi.... but I then felt like I should look at him and when I did We locked eyes and we stayed that way for like 3min tops.... it became a little awkward at the end but I don't think he minded.  :blush: :biggrin:
