Was pondering this the other day. Who have you seen during your life that is a celebrity or famous person? I don't mean like at a concert or something. Up close and personal. All but one of mine were chance encounters.

Here's my list

1. Jackie Gleason
2. Bryan Adams
3. John Couger
4. Donald & Keifer Sutherland
5. Wynona Ryder
6. Joanna Cassidy
7. Mariette Hartley
8. The Jonas Brothers (lol)

apart from lots of appalling British z-list celebrities who none of you have ever heard of, I have had a cigarette with Sean Bean outside a pub (he borrowed my lighter, he looks rough as f*ck in the flesh) and sat at the next table to Orlando Bloom in a Frankie & Benny's at Gatwick airport

Sean Bean is cool. I really like his acting style. He's a diehard rugby man if I'm not mistaken.

Gabrielle Union - During Carnival parties
Jay- Z - During Carnival season parties
Queen Latifa - During Carnival Season parties
Sir Richard Branson - During Carnival celebrations. Never met him.,but he was in close range,surrounded by ladies .

Nikki Minaj - [She recently filmed a music video down here.]


Usually lots of celebs come here annually for our Carnival parties / celebrations, and they can be spotted at various events sans security and media detail.
Really cool.

Steve Young, Elton John's Partner, the cast of thirty something when I was a kid they were filming on a pier in Cali. A lot off singers and bands. Use to work security for a local arena here. Oh my ex boy friend almost backed over Tim McGraw (how ever his name is spelled) while dropping me off at that arena. Lots of basket ball players as well. It was a great job to because I got to see and speak with a lot of famous people.
The fact that my grandfather sat in a burger joint with Mr johnny Depp him self and did not call me really burns my buns. It was while he was filming out on the salt falts.

at the risk of repeating myself it's not football if you play it primarily with your hands and everyone else on the planet calls it football so stick that in yer pipe and smoke it!

WTF do these guys know about " Le Futbol?'

Damn...nice list by some of you.

I saw Fran Tarkenton (ex NFL QB) walking through an airport.

I was a waiter in college, and one night I served Archie Manning (ex NFL QB), his wife and 3 young sons (Peyton, Eli and Cooper). Should have asked all of them to sign a napkin or something.:slap:

I walked up on St. Charles St. before a Mardi Gras parade started, and saw a mountain of a man standing alone. When I got closer I saw it was John Goodman.

so back in the 80's shortly after graduating from HS and prior to entering other phases of my life, I was a sky cap in an airport. Along comes Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and he wants help checking his bags in, "sure, I say" Ok... set the scene a 5'9" guy trying to keep ahead of a 7'2" giant, :rofl: Needless to say he was very nice and a generous tipper.
