Yes,I have met many of them. Let's see if I can list a few: (Donald Sutherland, Aaron Tippin [lives up the road from my Grandma and I've seen him many times. He's wonderfully nice.], Maury Povich (he's a big jerk), Connie Chung (she was very nice), Amad Rishad, Cheryl Ladd (she's absolutely TINY and so quiet) , and a bunch of NFL guys who's names I can't remember.... oh and Rick Roden was one of them, but I can't remember any other names. How about you, have you met anyone famous and were they nice or did they act like they were too good to be bothered with you?

Several years ago, my husband and I were having dinner at the New York New York casino in Las Vegas. My husband looked up from his dinner and saw Ray Charles and his entourage, and he was terribly excited and pointed him out to me. We finished up our dinner, paid the bill, and my husband said to me, "Just go with it, follow me, I have a hunch". I followed him silently and curiously and he led me to this lounge area. We sat down right in front of a tiny stage area at some comfy chairs and ordered a drink. Lo and behold, Ray Charles entered the area, went up to the tiny stage area and started to perform! He was so close to me that once he stumbled and I was concerned he would fall on me! He performed several songs brilliantly - I kept feeling such disbelief at this impromptu - and free performance! Later, he left, and I was just standing there as he passed by. I remember having to restrain myself from touching him, even though I had this irrestible urge to do so! It was an incomparable feeling, being in the presence of a musical genius!

Well, those that i have met are only nationally known anyway.A couple of series actors, and one or two movies actors, i have come across them while walking at the center.We didnt exchange words of course, so i cant say if they are pretending to be too good or not behaving well...After all i am sure they are bored to always get the same questions by passers-by like "Hey, you are X!" Imagine, it cant be very easy for them to reply always in a positive tone.

It is good subject to discuss. I also met many people arround me. If you don't meet with the people you don't know them, their behavior and their customs.

The Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles. They weren't really interested in talking to anyone, just shaking hands and moving on. I met Eddie Izzard after a show once and he was lovely. Very chatty and sweet. I've also met The Puppini Sisters. They were absolutely lovely and sweet too. Chris Jericho is also a nice chap. I've met him 2 or 3 times now.

That must of been really neat to actually met this people. The clost i have came to meeting at one was Clay Walker at a ms chat he was going to the restroom but he was blocked by body guards. It was still really neat to be passing by him. At the chat I was in the second row and he seemed very nice and down to earth.

Ive met a few famous people in my time. When I was a kid we went to a don ho concert and I met him when he called me and my sister to sing on stage with him that was a good moment even though I had no idea who he was lol. Also when we went to cancun mexico a few weeks ago we met Don King the famous boxing promoter he was staying at the same resort as we were he was there promoting the biggest fight ever in mexico.

I have only met few malayalam movie actors. Mukesh, Jayaram, Ganesh, Jagathy, etc are some of the malayalam movie actors I have met. I think most of them were very nice and used to talk with people. I have not able to meet any other famous people other than this. I hope I will meet some of the movie actors or actress in the near future.

I met Britney Murphy in a bar in downtown Miami. She was as skinny as ever. Skinnier than in the pictures. I met her right after she came out with 8 Mile. She looked like she drank a little. She talked like she was following a script and talked about girls need to take care of themselves and be nice, beauty isn't just on the outside, it's skin deep. She made me laugh with all the stuff she was saying, I guess she was trying to spread a positive message to girls while being drunk in a bar. But we took a couple photos, she told me I should be a model because I'm 5'10. Other than that she was a nice girl. She didn't act like she was too good to be bothered. She acted like she was an everyday person, just the stuff she was saying for like half an hour, spreading the positive message, after that she was talking like herself. She had a couple more shots and she was just chilling out.

Hey there dutchess67! Just like you, I have also met so many famous celebrities. I wouldn't be mentioning their names because most probably, you don't know them. They are just local celebrities in my country and not known to you perhaps. I have met some of them in the malls, hotels, resorts, in the street while doing some shootings, and in the subdivision where they live. Well I would be very honest. I am a fanatic person. And there was a time when I saw a vocalist of a male band who happen to pass near the place where I was staying in a resort. Well, I was so shocked of the move I have made. I said hi to him and immediately grab him for a picture taking. I didn't feel embarrassed at first. It was still after a few minutes when I've realized that the move I've made was really so shocking and somewhat embarrassing, lol :-) Cheers!

Yes quite a few although some of the names might only mean anything to others from the UK. The ones that spring to mind are Sean Connery, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard, Engelbert Humperdink, Leo Sayer, Bernard Cribbins, Spike Milligan, The Queen, The Queen Mother, Bill Clinton, Anita Roddick, Jonathan King, ummm, can't think of any more at the moment. They were all ok - Anita Roddick was probably the nicest. Obviously the Queen and the Queen Mother and Bill Clinton didn't say much more than hello though!
