Famous people you've met?

I think set up a topic like this. So tell about famous people that you've (personally) met. Was it an accident or for example a meeting in pursuance of a autographing or something? Were you happy or confused or...? Was the celebrity your idol or someone else?

I accidentally met our president when I was going a spa with my cousin couple years ago. We (me and my cousin) entered a locker room when somebody came there from the spa room. I just noticed that the comer looked (and sounded) just like our president. I still didn't dare to gaze her more because it would have been rude but started prepare myself for spa. I was so that I couldn't see mrs. president but my cousin saw. I was pretty confused and asked my cousin 3 times Is it she? Sure? Are you sure that it's she?

There was an annual opera event in the spa city then and I heard later that mrs. president had come to open this event.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Does sports people count? My friend is a UK champion in YO YO! haha it sounds funny but he has been coming up on tele and won allot of competitions (UK and other parts of the world).

As far as politicians concern I wouldn't count them as famous people, well from my (home country) side at-least because half of the family is in it. ex-PM,ex-President and loads others. So not so famous.

That's about it really.

I met Michaella Kraijcek the tennisplayer, because of my former work as a stylist.
You can watch her picture at my website, if you're curious, click for styling, then for background.

I met Faith Hill when I was in 7th grade! She was so nice. It was right after her first single, "Wild One" came out.

I've met Clinton Anderson too!
others I have seen but not actually spoken to are to many to list if you consider concerts and plays.
I saw President Reagan go by in a motorcade
Michael Martin Murphy (singer) I have a photo of us together someplace. I'm a big fan of his so I've met him several times.
I was at Tavern on the green (restaurant) in NYC. Joy Behar (co-host on The View) was at the next table. We were nice and didn't bother her.

My husband met Lenny Dawson (football star QB) on a bus tram at the airport. He spoke to him and he showed him his super bowl ring.
Also met Jimmy Houston (fishing show star) at an airport.
