I saw Adele earlier today again and that got me thinking, which celebrities/well known public figures have you seen (or met) in real life i.e. not while they’re working?
I’ve seen Adele quite a few times
Jessica Alba on holiday in Mexico
Prince Harry at a club in Mayfair
Chelsea footballers at a club in Mayfair
I added a poll because I like polls

Since I work in DT Seattle I’ve seen I think 3 Bachelor contestants. I also saw Jason Mesnick and his son Ty in Kirkland near his house at Fred Meyer.
When I was 13 I saw Joey Lawrence (swoon at the time) and got a photo with him.
I know there have been other sightings here and there but can’t remember

Other than at concerts, no. I have met a couple at concerts, but never when I am just strolling around.

I saw Brian McKnight at my college gym. I walked right past him and didn’t realize it was him until people were stopping in their tracks to stare at him.

I saw Arnold Schwarzenegger walked around Washington DC once, smoking a cigar. I took a pic of him, lol.

DH and I have met quite a number of celebrities. We used to live in New Orleans so there were always celebrities to meet due to the high amount of filming done there and the party scene. Among the nicest celebrities we’ve met to date have been Brad Pitt, Scott Caan, Ice-T and his wife Coco, Adrian Peterson, and Jeremy Lin. However, DH has said if he ever met his idol Kobe Bryant, he’d die happy.

Nikki Six (from Motley Crew)
Kardashians (dont know which ones, 2 of the sisters I think) I have seen them multiple times
The lead singer of Incubus used to come into my old work all the time.
Im sure there is more, but this is all I can think of at the moment.

I went to the emergency room last year and Paula D was in the next bed as me. He got discharged before me and walked by but I was too shy to stop him. I got a few pics with my cell phone of him leaving and texted everybody, lol.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rocky Mountains USA
I voted no but then I remembered I was in a dive bar in the Bahamas, and Elle MacPherson AND Bono were there! Apparently not such a dive bar after all.

I went to college in Austin and I’d see Andy Roddick, Brooklyn Decker and Lance Armstrong ALL the time. Lance was known for hanging in the bars where all the college girls were, hahaha. I also saw Matthew Mccongaughey at one of my college football games (my school is his alma mater and he is really passionate about the sports teams) and Sanda Bullock (she had a home in Austin).
I’ve also seen Johnny Depp from afar(he was filming in New Orleans and I was there for a long weekend) and I met Nicholas Cage one time – he was filming the sequel to National Treasure in Washington DC. I was with my SIL and we just walked right up to him and said hello & got his autograph.
Johnny Depp is known to sail his boat up into the Annapolis port (I used to live 20 minutes from Annapolis) so I know so many people that have seen him on a regular basis, I never caught him there though.

@Chael: Yep all the time. When I worked in Napa Valley I served/or saw while working at a high end restaurant;
-Sandra Bullock/Jesse James (right before they were super public with their relationship)
-Zoe Saldana and a Red Socks (?) Player she was dating
-Christina Aguilera (when she came up for her wedding)
…and many more I am forgetting . They just seem to roam the streets around here on vacation.
-Got to meet and speak to Adam Sandler on a hollywood tour along with his bulldog and ran into Diane Keaton (in curlers I might add) on that same tour.
-Met Mark Paul Gosselaar when I was younger.
-Trailed Danny DeVito and Rhea Pearlman at Sea World.
-Sat near Peter Coyote on a plane.
-Saw Mariska Hargitay in an airport.
-Oh and ran into George Lucas at a Best Buy…he was less than divine in person and quite a slob that day.
-Just missed the Kardashian crew once while in Vegas, they walked out as we walked in so only a glimpse. My friends snagged photos as they were waiting. Not bummed about that actually.
-My aunt built Mark McGwire’s one time house (prior to divorce). I had spaghetti dinner with him.
