I met Lance Bass once when he came to my school to speak about his new book and he stayed for pictures and autographs (I think this was about two years ago).  I also met Jim Gaffigan (comedian) through the same type of situation and he was super nice!

I’ve met a lot of bands that were big in the 90’s – Bush, No Doubt, Sponge, Everclear, Garbage, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Letters to Cleo, etc.  In high school, my friends and I would go to shows and hang out by their tour buses afterwards.  I have some great pictures of all these guys, too!

Recently, I saw Colin Powell and Larry David at a Yankees game on my honeymoon, and Jenny Lewis (lead singer of Rilo Kiley) in the West Village.  Also Paris Hilton and Brody Jenner, but I didn’t actually “meet” them.  They were at a bar (not the same night), and they were in the VIP room and didn’t ever come out and mingle.

I’ll add that Lance Bass wasn’t my favorite person but who knows, maybe he was tired or under stress.

I bumped into Bruce Willis a few weekends ago. I never had thought much about him, but let me tell you, that is one good-looking man. Yum.

Living in LA I’ve seen hundreds. I work one block from the Kardashians store and the area also happens to be a residential area for a lot of celebrities, so I often catch paparazzi taking some star’s photo at a restaurant or grocery store on my lunch break. The most recent ones that I can remember in the last couple months would be Steven Tyler, Tommy Lee, Rebecca Romijn, Richie Sambora and LeeAnn Rimes.

As far as having met any, I shook Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hand, and Matt Dillon flirted with me and a friend in a bar once. That one made me giddy at the time 🙂

I keep a list of bands I’ve seen live in a notebook because it’s around 200 or so now.  Going to concerts is my favorite thing in the world.  Mike and I went to three in a one-week span back in June!

Some of mine are bad, too.  I’ll see anyone though.  Probably the lamest on my list are Britney, NSYNC, and Ke$ha.

Honestly I never cared much about celebrities so I have this feeling I’ve seen more and I’m just not remembering… I know I saw Joaquin Phoenix coming out of some studio in NY (lenno or letterman… can’t recall which is in NY). My mom will swear forever that we saw carmen electrica in LA but I don’t think it was really her. 

The only person I can think of that I’ve actually met/talked to was Krist Novoselic (bassist from Nirvana). He is on the board for a non-profit I worked for and he came to one of the president of the non-profit’s dinner parties so I got to hang out and chat with him a bit. That was pretty cool bc I love Nirvana!

@CorgiTales: Haha, I sat next to Joaquin Phoenix in a cafe in NY once and the entire time I thought he was a homeless guy 🙂 And that was before his weird bearded rapper days.

My grandfather was a big time hockey player so I’ve met a bunch of celebrities through him and charity events: Matthew Perry (not very nice) and his dad (awesome!), Ty O’neal (he played the cowboy in Might Ducks 2), Matthew J Fox, Wayne Gretzky, Dave Coulier (Full House), a lot of former and current Red Wings players, Carson Palmer (Cincinnati Bengals QB) and a few others that weren’t as memorable.  One time we were on vacation in Florida and N’SYNC had a concert like an hour away (so obsessed!) and my grandpa called and got us tickets/backstage passes – apparantly Chris is a big fan – so I have pictures with those guys.  Hulk Hogan was there with his daughter Brooke too (she was a huge fan also) and we ended up sharing a box with them for the concert.  That was in the late 90’s when he was still super ripped up.  Not kidding, his bicep was bigger than my sister’s head!

I met Maj. Richard “Dick” Winters (Ret) in high school (He lives a town over from my hometown), Frankie Manning at his last major public event (Lindyfest 13), and also Katie Couric when she came to Ocean City in the 90s while my family was on vacation.

FH met a couple of the Spurs players and then saw Tommy Lee Jones at Blockbuster- but they live 3 blocks apart so it wasn’t that big of a deal to him.

@piglet67: Colbi Calliet played on my campus this spring- she invited two of my friends onto her bus so she could play with my one friend’s puppy.
