What celebrities have you met? How were they personlity wise. DId they look better in person or on tv??
Okay my list is short:
Michael Bolton-It was for a signing. I was surprised, but there were not very many people there. Probably 50 or so. He was friendly, but a little reserved. *Much* better looking in person
Gary Del'Abate- Well, on the show they make him to look like a zombey. He really wasn't bad looking, sort of an average joe, but a little better. The place was going nuts, so it was hard to tell what he was like. He seemed overwhelmed, but seemed nice. Took pics on everyones digital camera and made friendly converstion with people. I shook his hand and got an autograph. Seemed down to earth. Had to take a break for a smoke.
Bill Bradley: Met him at a convention when he was running for President. I actually got lucky, because we came late, and it was the exact place where he was shaking hands. Very tall, hard to remember, but looked very similar, when to what I have seen of him on tv. Looked tired, it probbaly is exhausting to go from city to city. He asked me, why my "hands were so cold?" It was cold out, but it was nice of him to ask.
Caryn Groedel: From Survivor fame. Emailed her. She lives 5 minutes from me, and invited me to 2 survivor parties. Truly stunning in person!! Class Act!
Kira Kener(porn star) Never actually talked to her. Very Stunning in person. Saw her with a manager and didn't seem too happy. When she was signing autographs she seemed more relaxed and was smiling.
That's it for me, so far.

I just hang out in the wrong places I guess.
I rode in an elevator with Gallagher (back in his heyday. Is he even still around doing that sledge o matick thing still?), then my brother bought a boat from him later. Brother was with me in the elevator at the time too.
I met former pro football player Deacon Jones as he was staying in the same hotel as us.
Stood in line behind Vice president Spiro Agnew in a bank in Greece in the early 70's.
My best friends uncle, whom I have met, used to play drums for The Marshall Tucker Band and he also went to school with most of Cheap Trick.
And my dad's first wife's college roommate played Miss Jane Hathaway on the Beverly Hillbillies.
That's all I've got too. pathetic really.
My husband met Stephen King as he was vacationing near where my husband was working.
The funniest sighting is this friend of mine who listens to really lite music (my mom would have LOVED her) and she was in an airport when a group came in and this one man stumbled over her luggage and stopped to apologize and she says: "that's ok" and he says: "no really, I am sorry. Would you like my autograph?" and she says: "I don't know who you are" and he says: "I'm Ozzy Osbourne" and she says: "Uh, no. Thanks anyway."
a few years later meets her future husband and while dating tells him this story and he just about dies as Ozzy is HIS favorite. He still hasn't forgiven her for not getting the autograph. And since his dad and Ozzy share the same birthday, its like a huge religious day or something at their house. LOL

(Who loves me will love my dog also)
It's been a good few months in the deli for waiting on atleast semi-famous folks...
-my favorite talk radio host here in town, Shannon Burke stops by every now and then
-one of my best customers is actually a retired baseball player, Curtis Leskanic (I've been waiting on him for 2 years and was clueless till recently)
-former Bachelor, Jesse Palmer has moved into the neighborhood
-the bestest one of the bunch to me is former soap star/actor Brian Patrick Clarke who is always more than gracious and spends 1/2 and hour or more at a time just chitchatting with me
- The Dean Martin Show -
Petula Clark: You know they say you can't buy happiness.
Dean Martin: No but you can pour it..
I had to look it up, but yep, that's him Gabriel I knew him from his days on General Hospital and even have an autographed postcard here from then as well (thank goodness I saved a bunch of my stuff from when I was a kid).
Since I'm a hopeless bookworm, my celebrity stories are pretty much limited to meeting various authors; Donna Tartt and Paul Auster are probably the most famous ones. (Donna: tiny, Southern and lovely. Paul: ridiculously handsome and polite.) However, I get to live vicariously through my friend Jonas, who works at Stockholm's most well-renowned hotel where all the celebrities stay. So far, he's delivered room service to countless stars, Keith Richards, Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, and Mick Jagger being the biggest names. Surprisingly, Naomi and Mariah - the two "divas" - were the nicest of the bunch while Madonna was rude and snippy.
Here's another one: Remember Ace of Base? (Don't worry, Sweden has apologized for them on numerous occasions. ) One of the guys (the really ugly one) likes to drive his monster-yacht by my boyfriend's grandparents' summer house. He's always accompanied by at least two girls and always plays awful music. So there. My biggest claim to fame.
Oh yeah, and when I was in New York, I spotted Ted Kennedy walking out of a building.
I think I need to move overseas to improve my celebrity résumé.
"There's more to life than books, you know, but not much more" (Morrissey)
I literally bumped into Jane Fonda as she was leaving a building. She was not gracious.
I was leaning against a wall at a Pogues concert when someone came and leaned right next to me. I looked over the see that it was Joe Strummer. He had the words to "I Fought the Law" laminated to the top of his guitar.
I was quite drunk at a Jazz Butcher show, so when it was over I hugged him and kissed him. He was not pleased, but that's what you get for being a cute musician.
I never met him, but apparently Harry Nilsson liked my art.
And so it begins, the end of times..
Years ago a movie was filmed in my city that had George Kennedy and Ernest Bornine in it. My family were extras in the movie and during a break I actually sat on Mr. Borgnines lap while he told jokes (I was about 8 or 9). He was very friendly and I have his autograph. George Kennedy on the other hand stayed in his trailer and didn't associate with the extras at all. I also have Joe Camp's autograph (of the Benji movie) and I might have George Kennedy's autograph, I think my mom forced it out of him
A few years ago Forces of Nature was filmed here and I was coincidentally at K-mart when they were filming a scene (I really had no clue they'd be there). I saw Ben Affleck up close and personal but didn't get a chance to get his autograph - he's quite good-looking and tall. Sandra was petite and very pretty. I didn't get to speak to them though
I haven't looked in my autograph book for a long time but I think I have Lanie O'Grady's from Eight is Enough fame and I have a post card from Amy Carter (Jimmy Carter's daughter) when I wrote to her when I was about 7! I don't remember why I wrote her lol!
My BIL saw Ben Affleck and the other Jen at the local movie theater one night. He bought a house nearby so he does pop into our town once in a while. Of course this was way before he got with the Jen he's with now.
I saw one of the actors from the Head of the Class series in a small Calif. airport once but he denied he was him. I was mad because I thought he should have been more friendly since obviously I can't even remember his name now, he didn't go on to do much with his career and he should have been thankful fans even recognized him!
Saw Robert Redford and John Travolta from a distance when they were filming separately in my town. Oh, and I used to work at the major hotel to the stars in my town and saw Hillary Swank up close but as an employee I couldn't approach her. Keanu Reeves, John Travolta, Cate Blanchett, Ben Affleck all stayed at the hotel one time or another. I spoke on the phone with Hal Holbrook when he called the manager's office to complain that his room service had not arrived yet. He was nice though.
That's all I can remember for now Oh wait - when I was a kid I shook Lee Major's hand at a Toys-R-Us thing, he stood there while we all filed past him in an assembly line like he was the King or something! I remember not wanting to wash my hand for a week because I touched the Six Million Dollar man!
I'm having major deja vu, it seems like I've posted all this before - maybe it was in the other thread. Sorry to bore you twice if that's the case!
