I met Jared Leto a few years back when he ran into me-literally. And this isn’t a known celebrity, but some of you might recognize his voice, my dad’s best friend is a narrator for the Discovery Channel. And, best of all, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling grew up in my hometown and they come back to visit their families every Xmas. I ran into Rachel at the pharmacy and she is the sweetest.

I once had an entire 20 minute conversation with Sophia Bush and had NO IDEA that it was Sophia Bush. I’ve done hair for a few celebrities. Fiance works at a gym that Elias Koteas (on Chicago PD & was Casey Jones on the old TMNT movie & a bunch of other stuff). Fiance just told me that he met Dave Chapelle today – he came in to the gym to work out since he is in town for some shows.

Not necessarily celebrities, but I know and tutored a few NBA players while we were in college. They still call me “tutor”. I also have two NFL players who are actually friends from college. Funny thing is I always talk to them, but never about the games. In fact I’ve only ever been to 1 pro football game. Man what I would give to re-do college.

I’ve worked with Patrick Stewart (lovely, humble, down to earth man with an unbelievable stage presence).  Also Derren Brown (UK bees may be more familiar with him) who was lovely as well.  Have also worked with a couple of major, major opera stars but if you’re not in the opera world you probably won’t recognise their names!

I’m not going to say any names but I have a few distant family members that are pretty big stars. However, I’m not close to them or have regular contact with them, so it’s kind of weird even considering them as family. 

A little fun one though is one girl I used to dance with ended up on a reality show as a super crazy chic and I was embarrassed that I knew her once upon a time, LOL.

  • Wedding: December 2016

My step grandfather and his wife live a few houses down from Sam Neill (Jurassic Park). I haven’t met him but will be going over to New Zealand next year to stay with the family, so I might meet him then lol.

I doubt he’s that big outside of Australia, but I’ve also met Chris Lilley who is a comedian here (he’s done a few TV shows – We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High, etc). I actually auditioned to be on one of his shows – Summer Heights High – and he was pretty nice. I actually got offered a role but my mum changed her mind and said no because of how much school I’d have to miss! Still haven’t forgiven her lol.

I know Trish Stratus the westler.  My dad and her dad grew up together and were bestfriends. She used to come over to our house sometimes with her dad when we were kids.  I also attended her wedding and got to meet a lot of wrestlers.This year her dad unfortunately passed away and I saw her at his funeral.  Also I had a baby this year and she gave me a really nice baby gift…Also Dh’s cousin was in a Rolling Stones music video. And dh is a cable technician and he has met a few famous people while at work.  He once had to fix Megan Follows cable. (Anne of Green Gables)(Reign).

As a Canadian I know a number of NHLers haha. Not very well though… Like one math class together or they taught a power skating class, or something like that. Likely they don’t know who I am anymore. 

One time my friend met John Stamos on a plane and he told her she was pretty.

I just remembered another actress but most people won’t know who she is. There used to be a show called Road to Avonlea and I was in the same class as the girl who played Cecily King.
