Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Reese Witherspoon, Minka Kelly, Derek Jeter, Cameron Diaz, Cordell Cato (soccer player)- just to name a few.
I used to work at a very high end restaurant in Miami Beach and handled large parties and VIP clients. Those listed above came in often enough for us to become “friends” (friends as in we exchanged phone numbers, knew family names and would meet up at Miami events occasionally, they didn’t invite me on private yacht trips in Italy or anything unfortunately).
The list gets bigger of just those celebrities who I’ve met or corresponded with for no longer than a night.

My dad went to Harvard and wrote for the Harvard Lampoon with Conan O’Brien. When Conan was still in New York, my dad introduced me to him during a trip. It was amazing, because I had started watching his show when I was 12-13 and developed the weirdest crush on him before my dad told me he knew him. I just about crapped my pants when he hugged my dad and called him by his nickname lol.

Haha, so sorry. I did run into him at the mall, so maybe he wasn’t in the best mood and that’s why he was short/snappy with me and the others that recongized him.

I work at a plastic surgery/cosmetic medicine center near a major city. I’ve worked with several local and tv celebrities- obviously I can’t name any names, but I try to avoid working with anyone famous. I don’t need that drama and liability in my life

- Wedding: July 2015 - Beautiful place.
My brother in law is one of the investors at Drake’s restaurant here in Toronto so I met him few times, mind you, I didn’t even know who he was.. I also met Clair Danes in a day care she was with her husband and son, also in Toronto. Also I was in Paris one night with my parents having dinner a nice restaurant and Britney Spears was next to us.. But I just saw her. I know few others but they are from overseas so I guess y’all wouldn’t Know them.

Not as a friend, but I did meet Lebron James at one of his high school’s football games (he’s from my city, and I had friends who went to high school with him). He was already out of school since he was a senior when I was in 8th grade.
Holy crap, is that guy a d-bag. My Fiance is obsessed with him and my eyes roll out of my head when he raves about the Cavs because he’s such a dick.

Are pro wrestlers considered celebrities? 🙂 I used to work for Hunter Hearst Helmsley (Triple H) when he was a regular joe, assistant manager of a local gym. A good friend of mine dated Chyna before she was Chyna and while she was becoming that character so I knew her, too (before the crazy days). My friend was just interviewed by HBO for a “comeback” special they are making about her.

i just remembered that Darling Husband and I rode an elevator with William H Macy once in Chicago.
I recognized him on the street and we followed him into a hotel and got into the elevator with him. It was just the 3 of us in the elevator. Problem I was trying to be cool and normal so when we got in the elevator I pankicked and hit the first button I saw – floor 3 – LOL loser! I should have hit a higher floor. And then we didn’t say anything the whole ride! I WISH I hadn’t played it so cool and at least shook his hand or something! Double loser! My husband was shaking his head at me, mad at me I didn’t give him enough time to think of something to say besides Fargo. lol.
