    My mom has stories of all the famous people she ever met: Brian McKnight, Michelle Obama (before she was the First Lady), Gary Sinise, John Cusack, Michael Jackson.

    I've only ever met one famous person: some prominent player for the St. Louis Rams. I met him two years ago, and tbh I was not impressed. I can't even remember his name. The guy I was with knew him straight off the bat. He said "Excuse me, are you [whoever]." I was like "...Who?"

    The guy seemed tickled that I'd never heard of him but I told him I wasn't a Rams fan. He asked me who my favorite NFL team was and I told him "I'm a ride or die Bears fan."

    He just gave me a super blank look.

    My friend tried to clean up after me. "I'm a Rams fan! I love..."

    I just walked away. I left him in that store to fanboy. I actually left him period. Got on the train and went home.

    That was a super dick move but I'm a dick and that honestly didn't phase me one bit.

    He's still kind of pissed at me. Apparently I embarrassed him in front of whoever this athlete was.

    Anyway, tell me a story. Have you ever met anyone famous?

    Probably the biggest names you might know, British bulldog from WWE when i was a kid, my grandad was friends with the family.

    Cristiano Ronaldo outside of Old Trafford Stadium.

    Steven Gerrard, ex liverpool player.

    Met various other football (soccer) players that you probably wont have heard of.

    The others i met are only (kind of) famous in the UK, like peter kay and some rugby league players

    met? no. but i've talked to actors, singers, authors, and movie producers.
    they're just people who happen to be well known. most of them are underwhelming.

    Nikki Taylor and her (dead) sister lived like 10 minutes from me and we had the same friends. Their whole family was pretty down to earth. They even lived in a basic house in their neighborhood.
    Met Kelly Osbourne at Nikki Beach in Miami.


    hmmm think that's it.

    Sure have. Let's see.

    Paula Deen is a racist, alcoholic asshole. Her husband is pretty cool though.

    Scott Stapp is a greasy douchebag.

    Alicia Keys is extremely nice and down to earth.

    Bo Burnham is hilarious, but very... snippy I guess is a good word.

    Brian Regan is incredible. Acts just like his comedy portrays.

    The entire band Styx is super chill and very polite.

    Donald Trump is... not putting on a front with his public image.

    Willie Nelson looks like a wrinkly nutsack and smells like weed and sweat.

    Jared Leto is by far the nicest celebrity I've ever met. As is his brother, Shannon. I was blown away.

    The list goes on.

    Omg you met Jared Leto?!

    I'm going to go cry into my pillow now.

    I'm not surprised by the rest of those descriptions. I knew Donald Trump is an asshole. Nobody is that good of an actor.

    Alicia Keyes seems like she's really nice. And I'm not surprised Paula Deen is a racist or an alcoholic. She's from the South. That kind of goes without saying.

    Few years ago I discovered that a relative of mine was a famous singer that even participated at Eurovision years ago.

    I meet him three times, and he seemed kind of a pleasant and friendly guy until he tried to drag me into his damn Lyoness Pyramid crap.

    Since then I've never seen him again.

    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    Not surprised about the Donald thing either. The sad thing is middle class people like myself is exactly who he shits on, and yet people want him running things.

    I will be happy to meet Nobel Prize or people like that, but for me all these actors or celebrities are nothing, and I think we gives too much credit to those people who are not worth it, especially the young people that tries to look like their, including for example the little girls of 12 years old which twerk for tries to look like nicki minaj

    The famous people are not those who should be famous

    I played (shortly) in a band with Pink (Alecia Moore). She's from my home town. My wife used to be very good friends with her. Hung out with her and her husband a while back when she came into town. Carey Hart is a super cool dude. Talked to him for literally 30 minutes. Super down to earth guy. Also, back in the day, when I toured with multiple bands, I met all kinds of musicians (Bloodhound Gang, Beastie Boys, G Love, The Roots, Violent Society, and a bunch of other bands I can't remember).

    Other than that, I have a buddy who played in the NFL for a 11 years and I once met Robin Williams in Vegas. Oh, I also saw Larry King in Vegas the last time I was there. That is one ugly ass dude.

    Honestly, I'm not the star struck type. I could give two shits if you are famous. My wife is a different story though. When we first started dating, they were filming The Happening next store to the farm we lived on. Mark Wahlberg was standing in the field and saw my wife creeping in the bushes watching him. He gave her a wave and smiled. I didn't hear the end of that shit for weeks. lol.
