Have you met any celebs? Name names....

Question says it all, have you met any celebs? And who were they?

Bonus points for proper A listers (De Niro, Beckham and the like)

And a big for any reality tv 'stars'

Re: Have you met any celebs? Name names....

I'll kick us off, I met Damian Lewis of 'Band of Brothers' fame on one of our trains, and a nice fella he is too.
Also met plenty of racing drivers, who are moderately famous in the right circles. Laurent Aiello, James Thomson, Gabriele Tarquini, Michael Andretti, Thomas Scheckter
And loads of heavy metal band members that aren't particularly famous at all
 
happy man

I've met a few footballers in my time, most notably Gazza who poured me a pint of champagne.

Re: Have you met any celebs? Name names....

A mate and me were week-ended in London with work,and we retired to a little pub in Chelsea for a quick pint.First person we met was Tom Baker (Dr Who) One of the best nights of my life.He was friendly and witty,and we all ended up rather drunk,by about midnight!Didn't take us for a spin in the Tardis or a quick tour of the universe or anything!On the plus side,the Daleks didn't turn up,although at one point Tom thought he saw one,but then decided it couldn't be as it went upstairs!He was like that all evening,sort of quiping at how rediculous Dr Who really was.

Voted none but then remembered...

that I had my photo taken with Billy Walker (anybody remember him - another great white hope), along with some other school kids at the front of Jack Brabham's garage in Chessington. All this in 1965 (give or take a year).

Brian Ferry, in a lift in the Amstel Hotel, Amsterdam, way back. Think I've posted this before, unless I am getting really forgetful, and have rolled all the marbles out?

Re: Have you met any celebs? Name names....

Unfortunately I don't get starstruck with meeting, socialising with or being introduced to 'famous' or 'infamous' people. Therefore I never feel the need to tell anyone about it.

Re: Have you met any celebs? Name names....

hmmm.....

met emma thompson & daniel day lewis when i was an extra in a film they were starring in in liverpool. she was lovely , he was a bit of a weapon

met bryan robson at a charity night down my local pub a few years back, then paid the landlord a fiver to sing "you'll never walk alone", robbo paid him a tenner to stop

met boy george at cream in liverpool, he was actually a top fella

and i've had a pint with paul heaton of the housemartins/beautiful south. and i once had a couple of beers with shaun ryder at his apartment whilst waiting for his dealer to turn up

but the best was on my wedding night in new york - late on we all went to a club called the cutting room, owned by chris noth who plays mr big in sex & the city. we were having a great time anyway but at 2am in walks chris noth and is introduced to us by the bar staff as "the mad english wedding party". so over he comes with a waitress and a few bottles of champagne and sits with us for ages, slurping champagne and smoking our cigarettes. proper geezer

i wish i was as evidently as ice cool as ecosse oz is, but when it's a celeb worth meeting it rocks

Re: Have you met any celebs? Name names....

Met a couple of Z Listers in my time,

Andy Crane from What's Up Doc? being one of them.

Precisely.



Also, a big thumbs up to Roswell for having Kate Nash as his avatar, I had the same avatar for a short time a while back, well done.
