I met Bill Clinton's cousin. *lawl, but true*

And I have a signed picture of Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat movie, and I got to wear Sylvester Stallone's alligator skin jacket. (Thing weighed a ton, by the way).

My friend got to meet Swan from the Warriors.

And apparently Keanu Reave's sister lived about 2 minutes from my first house in Glendale, so we got to see him driving around the neighborhood at times.

And how could I forget, I lived about three doors down from Izabella Dorota Scorupco, who played Natalya Simonova in 007 Goldeneye (though she didn't like having attention drawn to her, so I couldn't ask her for an autograph or a reference to become an actor, much to my great sadness). And I lived across the street from one of the founders of the band L.A. Guns, used to play with his son a lot.

And, whether or not you want to count this, some porn stars bought a house on our street for a bit. *Lawlz*

Besides local news people

Karl Rove spoke at concocation at my school while I was there

When I was in New Orleans helping with hurricane recovery, one of the guys we helped when we finished a house early is the guy who directs those Zataran's commercials

No...and I probably never will...@#$%, my life is a waste.  :(

Although I met Tara Lipinski over the phone (she's really stupid and annoying) and I also met Dana Snyder over the phone, he does the voice of "Master Shake" from Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Dana's awesome).

I saw Russ Tamblyn from "West Side Story", someone I knew was performing in the theater version of West Side Story, and Russ Tamblyn came up on stage before the play and gave a speech.  Glad I made it to see the play that night.  Would've gone up to talk to him, but he was surrounded by audience members throughout the night, swarming on the poor guy like bees.  :lol:

My friend got to meet Swan from the Warriors.

He met Michael Beck!?  Lucky!

Well, none that I think anyone here would know of. :lol:

Not surprising. Didn't he insist on using camera angles which made him look larger than he was when he was still an actor?

Still, huge fan of him. Was a true inspiration to me when I was younger.

I saw Pete Rose in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas signing autographs for some new book he did.  Furthermore I had the chance to see Evader Holyfield in MGM Grand that same day, but I didn't take it because I was busy doing other things.

The Strip on Las Vegas I found was a great place to meet up with famous people, as well as do "other things"  :shock::P

I love threads like this.  Good lord.

One time I met Vida Blue (the baseball player) he apparently lives around here somewhere.

And then there was this:

There's too many old men in this picture, it's too good for real words.

My husband snagged his cigarette rolling papers on the way out of the conference hall.  He's an evil thieving bastard.  But at least I can say I have Christopher Lloyd's rolling papers.  How many people can say that?

I went to Ihop for my fathers 52nd birthday and Chuck Norris was saitting behind our party. My mom started to talk about the movies he was in and how he was a nice guy. He got up from his seat and said to everyone "Awe thanks, say is today someones birthday?" My dad said "Me" I saw Chuck Norris taking off his signature gloves and handed them to my dad. Then we all got our group photo with Chuck and he left.

Better than having a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese.      >XP

They're some of the nicest people ever. I told marco (one of my bass idols) I played bass and he was like "it's great to see mor bass players. Keep on having fun with it." i had a fangirl moment then.
