What do you do when you meet celebrities?

Do you get excited when you meet a celebrity? Honestly speaking, do you try to get a picture with them? Do you tell them how good they are at what they do? I don't usually get excited about seeing actors and actresses. But last night we got to meet this really, really great singer. He had such an impressive voice, and wasn't bad-looking, either. So, out came the cameras and we took as many pictures as we could. He was quite cool about it, too.

I think it is neat to meet somebody famous - but it all stands to reason how they are about being out in public and meeting fans. If they are enjoying themselves and not being snobbish or entitled, then of course I'm excited to meet them. I wouldn't mind a picture with them but I'd ask first. You would think since their status relies on what the public thinks, most famous people would be very appreciative of the people who helped raise them to their status, but some celebrities have their noses so far in the air they forget that without us, their status would not exist. BTW I am not the type to go crazy, I'd rather chat with a celebrity and maybe get a personal note on a book or cd or program along with a candid snapshot. I'd like to get them to talk more and I'd just listen - unless they had questions for me.

Hmm, that's a good point. Most of them wouldn't be celebrities without the rest of us to idolize, watch, listen to and make much of them. When I get to meet an author I always try to get his/her autograph on his book. If its an actor/actress I try to get a picture. But its trying to talk to them that's the hard part. I usually freeze up LOL

My girl friend & I aren't really into celebrities... If we see them, we see them, they're no different than other people, except they're on tv or movies... They want their privacies just as much as we do... I sell appliances for a living... If I'm out of my work & having a private time with my family or something, I don't want people following me saying, "yeah, you're the one who sold me the dish-wahser... I have a question about ranges & fridges......" May be a short friendly remark would be nice but otherwise, we leave them alone... After all, they're outside of their work...

Sounds good, really down-to-earth. I bet they would appreciate that sort of attitude; allows them to be like everyone else and enjoy their privacy. That's nice.

I usually get nervous and don't know what to say at first because I'm so excited just to be in their presence. I saw a guy thats a really cute meterologist on the news and I totally froze up. Luckily the people I was with were doing the talking for me. I just ended up giggling, it was kind of cute lol.

That sounds just like me. I usually only smile and shake hands - if he or she gives his/her hands to shake. Politicians do that, usually. With movie stars, everybody is mostly screaming and jostling for pictures, so I just sort if join in.
