    Michael Phelps. I swam year round in Virginia he came to our practice once for a meet and greet mentor to younger swimmers thing. This was BEFORE he won all those medals… and was just an awesome swimmer for his age (qualified for the olympics but no gold medals yet!) so yea I look back and think DAMN I should have gotten proof of that.

    I met Jim Breuer (from Half Baked) at a comedy show & got a pic with him too πŸ™‚  I also met Pauly Shore… he even called me sweetie & gave me a hug after he autographed a t-shirt.  I have met Josh Blue as well, he’s not as famous but he is hilarious!  He won last comic standing, and has cerebral palsy- if you aren’t familiar with his comedy, definitely google him.

    Apparently I’ve only ever met comedians :/

    Fiance and I met Ron Maclean (and his wife) from Hockey Night in Canada last summer! Both of us were super stoked! 

    My mom is a chef and once catered for many Canadian bands/singers at their concerts. I have met the Moffats (Canadian girls of my generation used to swoon over these guys), Amanda Marshall, Tom Cochrane, and Jann Arden. She was a single mom and took me to her many catering gigs at the Royal Theatre in Victoria… and that is where I met a lot of these stars.

    Also wanted to add: a girl I used to play softball with, her dad was an NHL player.

    I’m from Maui and lots of celebrities visit there! I worked at a local grocery store on the “touristy” side of town – everyone has to eat! πŸ™‚ We try to treat them respectfully and just go about our business as usual.

    I’ve seen Steven Tyler, Mike Myers, Clint Eastwood and Mike Tyson.

    In Hana, I’ve met Linda Carter and seen Richard Pryor.

    Oh not me but a kind of funny story. My uncle was flying from LA to Austin TX and they overbooked his flight. He said he could wait till the next one and then got bumped to first class. His seat ended up being next to Sandra Bullock who has a house in the Hill Country and spent the whole flight talking to her. All made better by the fact that my uncle jokes Sandra is the only person he would ever leave his wife for πŸ˜‰

    I have!  

    I met Pete Best (the original drummer of the Beatles, before Ringo joined and took his place).  He played a show at a local bar and I was SO STOKED to see him play because I love the Beatles.  After the little concert, I asked him to take a picture with me and he grabbed my butt.  -_-  I wasn’t too thrilled with the butt grab.

    ETA-  I also met Joel Salatin (famous in the organic food industry) a few months ago at a book signing with my Fiance.  I didn’t say anything, but my Fiance and he shook hands and chatted a bit.

    I haven’t really met any but I’ve seen a few in the wild (Keanu Reeves, Glenn Close, Martha Stewart). James Earl Jones and I used to go to the same post office and I sometimes saw Law and Order Cast members on the train during my commute to school when I lived in NY.

    ETA: Fiance and I have pictures with Penn and Teller, they do pictures and autographs after every show.

    I also saw Tim McGraw and Faith Hill out shopping once. I said Hi and was really awkward.

    Met Reese Witherspoon and she was super sweet and talked to me and my friend for like 10 min. Super bummed I don’t have a pic from this encounter!
