What famous people have you met?

Ad Hoc

THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS
I met Philip Pullman. Unfortunately I was like 10 at the time and hadn't read his books yet. Clearly his atheist devilry worked on me, though.
 
Johnny Depp, Serj from SoaD, George Kollias, the black pirate of Davy Jones's crew from PotC, and some voice actors most wouldn't recognize by name.

Too many to list. Michael Douglas, Adam Sandler, Ashton Kutcher, Tobey Maguire, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, Andrew Garfield, and Alex Trebek are the ones I recall seeing the most often when I worked on the Sony studio lot.

I haven't really talked much with many of them, though, because bug the actors on the lot and you will more than likely get fired.

Oh, and here's a vehicle he did on his show Overhaulin' shortly after I met him... and told him he should really do an old air-cooled VW on his show:

Oh, and here's his projects page... the two I remember seeing at the show were "P-32" and "Impression"... and I'm not sure, but he may have had "Hemisfear" at the show (unpainted), as well:

Obama gave a speech in my town way before he was president. And some guy that was in the NBA years ago before he was arrested for drugs and stuff (forgot his name). He was a family friend, mostly my uncle's friend. Dude was too damn tall, over 7 feet.

I once met Chuck Norris- an experience that is life-changing to say the least. Some people have a double chin, he has a third fist under his beard. No, none of those facts about Chuck Norris are true but he is a very inspiring individual to say the least.

I got a lift to school by John Barrowman in the same SUV they used for Torchwood once. Turns out, his parents live up near Dunoon in Scotland where I lived, and he was int he area visiting between filming for Torchwood (this was about 3 years ago, before I moved to Spain). He actually owns the SUV they used for Torchwood, so he had that. I had missed the bus, and was walking to school, when suddenly, this SUV pulls up, the window rolls down, and it's Captain Jack Harkness grinning at me, and asking if I need a ride. I said sure, and got in, and he is such a nice guy, very considerate, and a good laugh. Of course he couldn't tell me anything about Torchwood, or the projects he was working on, so we talked about other stuff, like how his parents lived in the area, and other stuff (it's been 3 years, I can't remember real specific details like the topic of conversation).

Best. Day. Ever.

I AM MOTHERBUTTFUCKING JEALOUS OF YOU RIGHT NOW, I AM ANGRY THAT'S HOW JEALOUS I AM.

Lets see:

Tim Gun from Project Runway
Wolfgang Puck a world renown chef
The whole cast of Deadwood
A lot of WWF wrestlers
Ozzy Osbourne
Rob Zombie
Metallica
Sharon Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne

The first cast of the Aadams's Family musical

That's about it for me.

I am also jealous of you. I did see Rob Zombie in concert though.

This is actually on the optional section of my bucket list.

Doug Stanhope, and Ron Paul. I saw Tommy Lee Jones and Jesse Jackson in the airport once, as well. I don't care about those last two, though.

That's so cool, but a shame you couldn't appreciate meeting him at the time.
It's his fault you're heading toward a Hell full of armoured, talking bears and wheeled elephant people.
I'll see you there. C:

Oh, I was in a book store when famour British TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh walked in for a book signing. The shop starting filling with adoring old ladies, so I left pretty quickly.

My celebrity regret was not skipping a day of work in a shitty sports shop to go to a Terry Pratchett book signing. The two shops were quite close, so I ran the risk of being seen by a staff member. :c

When I was a kid, my mother took me to meet Adm. Grace Murray Hopper in her office. I admired her knowledge and experience, but I was still too young to appreciate her place in history even then. She gave me a couple of her "nanoseconds," and if I had been a better kid, I would've hung on to them, but I didn't and wound up losing them.
