I’ve met/come across a lot of celebrities lving in NYC. The most memorable encounters have been when I least expected it:

1) I got checked out by Colin Farrell! Yup, I was at a bar in Manhattan, and saw someone staring at me, like seriously looking me up & down! So,  I looked up only to see a famliar face I couldn’t quite place with a name.  It took a few seconds and then I realized who it was! Only to then freak out and run to the other side of the bar to find my fi and tell him! lol He freaked out and said “Where is he? I’ll go tell him off!” lol.  I convinced the fi it was best to ignore him.

2) I was walking into a startbucks and had the door held open for me by.. Freddie Prinze Jr.  hehe ..I was in love with him growing up, and at the time he was living in NYC filming a TV show.  He was leaving as I was entereing, so once I thanked him and walked in I realized who it was!

3) I also had the not so pleasant experience of seeing Lindsay Lohan, on numerous occassions, completly inebriated, dancing on bars etc…real messy drunk.

I saw Maura Tierney once (ER), but didn’t meet her. Other than that, sadly, I haven’t met any famous people!! I grew up on the east coast of Canada though, not too many celebrities around there.

I saw Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes while they were in town filming something – I live right next to like, an old castle type building that’s in an old neighbourhood so they do a lot of fliming there for 1920’s era movies.

  • Wedding: September 2012

Back in the day I met Hanson.  I’ve also met the entire St. Louis Blues team several times because I used to work for the team. Some of them are sooooo pretty when they are dressed up! I ran into one particular player so often that we became good friends.  Even after he got traded to a different team we still keep in touch all the time.

While I was in NYC a few years ago I saw Lindsay Lohan’s make up, I think she was actually under there somewhere. I saw another chick but I can’t remember her name.

I grew up in Las Vegas until I moved to Reno when I was 18, but as a young teen Living in Las Vegas, working in the casinos, I suppose I was a little bit of a “groupie.”

I use that term in quotes because I never slept with any celebs, although I did make out with Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys. Sleeping with celebs, in my mind, is what a groupie is–I just liked to meet them and have the chance to hang out with them.

I had the opportunity to hang out with a few people– Nick Carter, The Black Eyed Peas before they were popular, Justin and Kelly Clarkson right after the first season of American Idol, Nappy Roots, James Vanderbeek from Dawsons Creek, MC Hammer (it’s a looong story, haha) and I wouldn’t say “hung out with” but my girlfriends and I got invited to Nelly’s Billboard Music Award after party.

Other than that, I had the chance to meet a TON on celebs, it was kind of “my thing” back in the day. Being young and cute, and having an “in” it was easy to find out where they were staying, and where they hung out. I’ve met: All of Nsync and the backstreet boys, Brittney Spears, Run DMC, Steven Tyler, The entire American Idol cast from the first Season, Aaron Carter (llaaaame), Simple Plan, Green Day, Pink, Beyonce, Ludachris, Hanson, Reeba Mcentire, Brad Garret, Jack Johnson, Jack osbourne, Lars from Metallica, Mark Mcgrath, Wade Robinbson, Jenna Jamison and Ron Jeremy (ew, pervert!), Lynard Skynard (the whole band), Michael Jordan and Mike Tyson.  That’s all I can remember off the top of my head, but I spent a few good years doing that. It was fun, but I moved and Reno isn’t exactly a celeb hot spot. It was fun while it lasted. 🙂

  • Wedding: September 2010 - Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Museum Reception

I have seen: Rihanna, Kat von D, Russell Simmons, David Duchovny, Kid Rock, Chris Brown, Kevin Spacey, and Anna Faris. Kevin Spacey was in NYC, Anna Faris was here in Boston, David Duchovny was in LA, and all the rest were when I lived in Vegas. Rihanna is STUNNING in person.

Also, I don’t know if anyone is a fan of The Wire (the HBO TV series) but one of the actors lives around the corner from me here in Boston, so I see him all the time.

Not too many celebrities in my area, but I’ve been less than 100 ft away from Josh Duhamel, John Lee Hooker Jr, and Calista Flockart.

  • Wedding: June 2011

I worked at an event center during college and met Lance Armstrong (who was pretty rude) and Martina McBride (who was really down to earth!).  It’s interesting being around famous people and their entourage… those are the only 2 I’ve been in close contact with though!!

  • Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden

Just recently, I met three of the cast members from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” – Kaitlin Olson, Rob McElhenny, and Glenn Howerton (Charlie Day wasn’t there, and he’s my favorite – sob).

When I was in L.A. last year, I saw Pharrell Williams at a retaurant, and Scarlett Johannson with Ryan Reynolds at a party. My friends and I also had a very random and drunken conversation with Bill Maher at a bar.

I worked at a radio station in the 90’s so I met a lot of musical artists. Some were huge, some were one hit wonders. Off the top of my head, I can remember Oasis, the Foo Fighters, Beck, Garbage, Tori Amos, Alanis Morrissette, The Afghan Whigs, Courtney Love, and a bunch of fairly unknown artists.

And I went to high school with Kelly Ripa. She was a senior when I was a freshman and we were in a play together.

Christina Ricci was my childhood babysitter. No kidding!! Also- I hated her. If only I had known about Mermaids and The Addams Family back then!

Also… I saw Yao Ming here once at St. Elmo’s steakhouse. Was too nervous to speak. HE IS FREAKIN’ TALL!

  • Wedding: August 2010

A month or two ago I met Kellen Lutz (Emmett from Twilight) at a club in San Diego.  My friends are part owners of the club so we hung out with him for almost 20 minutes.  It was just me and my friend and him with his manager nearby.  Pretty cool.

I danced with the tall skinny guy from Scream (and Shaggy from Scooby Doo) at a club in Palm Springs.

I’m totally not one to go up to celebrities so there are many more that I’ve seen than met…

I went to a movie when I was at UCLA and Nicole Kidman was in line if front of me.  She is tiny (but tall).

I stayed at the same hotel at T.O. in Cabo.  He was at the pool near us with his entourage.
