I myself have never really met anyone famous, but seem to know a lot of people who have. The closest I have ever come to meeting one was when Norv Turner (formerly a Redskins coach, now somewhere else but I forget where) nearly ran me over in a mall parking lot

My boyfriend's sister has interviewed Joan Jett and Dave Grohl. Also one of his other sisters was good friends with a pro football player's daughter (but I forget his name, you can see I know zero about football... he was pretty famous though... he's the one that drunkenly said something stupid to Sandra Day O'Connor) so they all knew him. My dad met Christian Slater on a plane, and the band Korn in an airport. And I don't know if this counts, but my grandfather knew the guy that Mel Gibson played in "We Were Soldiers" because... well, that was his unit in Vietnam. Oh, and one of my roommates in college's fiance is a cousin of Michael Tucker, a lesser-known pro baseball player. Also a good friend of mine is Greg Maddux's (sp?) cousin.

Maybe one day I'LL actually meet someone famous

There was an annoying clown in the scene, and Dorothy wanted to smash her cake in his face, but she didn't...that honor went to KSB.

I never believed that he had really done an episode of "The Golden Girls" until I visited his parents house and saw the picture of him with Bea Arthur and Betty White. He told me Betty White is very sweet, and that Estelle Getty thought he was really cute because KSB told her that his grandfather had a crush on her.
HE HIT MR. HAHA IN THE FACE WITH THE PIE?!??!?! I always thought that was Ben Savage!! HOW COOL!

Sorry, but that's one of my GG scenes ever!! "I'll rip your heart out, HaHa!" LMAO!!!!!!!!

I have Met Kelly Gruber, former 3rd basman for the Toronto Blue Jays (now that was back in the day) and I met Curtis Joseph and Edge from WWE.

She is't famous famous, but I'm pretty sure Canadians will know who I'm talking about. I met Laura Bertram from the Canadian tv show Ready or Not. She played Amanda Zimm. She was a student at Guelph and I believe graduated a year or 2 ago. She's now on the tv show Andromeda.

I met two guys from O-Town this summer. My friends and I were sitting at the tables on the sidewalk of this coffee shop and it's across the street from this big hotel. O-Town was doing a concert that night, and bunches of tour buses kept driving by, but we didn't think anything of it. We were looking over across the street near the Bennigins and there was this fine looking guy that was talking to some girls. My friend was like "That would be hella funny if that was O-Town or something." and we're like "Yeah, but it's not." So a little bit later we are walking around and we see this really fine guy with dreds and we go up and talk to him, we were all like "Yeah, I think we saw one of the guys from O-Town, he was kinda hot." and the guy was like "Yeah, he has a girlfriend." and then my friend is talking with him and he was like "Do you guys like O-Town?" and we are like "No, they are so fake, blah, blah, blah, Making the Band is stupid..." and he is like "I'm Jacob from O-Town" we didn't believe him, and what I guess what some roadie comes up and corroberates and then Dan, who was the guy that we saw earlier that we didn't think could be him, comes up and talks to us. We tell him our names and my friend gets him and Jacob to sign her dollar, and I get us all in a picture with them. Then they leave. I guess I wouldn't really consider them 'celebrities' but that is the most famous, if you will, people I've met.

One girl I went to high school with went up to 112's room when they came in to town, and supposedly got drunk with them. She's got pictures of her in their room so, hmm...

I got hit on by "Chunk" from the Goonies movie. When we went to LA a year ago, he is now a lawyer in LA and not so chunkier anymore. He seemed nice, but not quite my type. We met him, after my friend met another lawyer in the same firm. They were ll out at Skybar celebrating their law firm's anniversary. They were leaving in a limo to go to the House of Blues and invited us with, but we declined. But I always wonder what would've happened if we had gone with. We also met someone with a minor role on ER.

I interviewed the country band Montgomery Gentry for my college newspaper and got to see Lone Star a few feet away. They were very nice and very Kentuckyish ( which is an awesome thing since they remind me of family) and I went into their tour bus.

Met Counting Crows at a meet and greet, and met various people from the Real World series'

And I have meet brass in Illinois and Missourri Govt if you consider them celebs.
