We went to see David Copperfield and was lucky enough to go back stage and meet him. He touched my little finger as he was handing me back the autograph!! He was really nice and oh so CUTE!!!!

David and I used to go to a lot of Mariner games here in Seattle. Ken Griffey lived about 4 miles away from us. He let us follow him home on the freeway one time. David was 16 at the time and he thought it was the coolest thing!

A friend of mine bought a car that used to belong to Joey Cora ( another ex-mariner player, my all time favorite!) He'd signed an autograph for David and I while sitting in the car. Does that count?

Some celebrities that I've met who were down to earth:
  • Cuba Gooding, Jr.
  • Ben Affleck
  • Michael Bay (All three of the above when they were filming Pearl Harbor in Hawaii)
  • Drew Barrymore
  • Reece Witherspoon
  • Matt Damon
  • Kate Hudson
  • Katie Holmes
  • Samuel Jackson
The following were strange. Not difficult, but strange:
  • Janet Jackson
  • LaToya Jackson
  • Quentin Tarrantino
The following definitely had that "Hollywood" attitude
  • Alicia Silverstone
  • Ashton Kutcher
  • Paul Walker
  • Kirstin Dunst
  • Toby McGuire

You'd love it Australia is wonderful but I am biased!

My husband always says for every famous person there are 500 people who went to school with them!!! By the way DH went to school with the captain of the Wallabies- George Gregan but i think only Kyles will appreciate that.

Wow! Iron Chef has seen enough celebrities for all of us! My sister talked with Tom Waits a couple years ago. I think he'd be a very interesting person to meet.

I did meet Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner years ago (in about 1972 or '73--I was in high school) for a minute after a concert. We got their autographs, and Dolly told me she like my dress.

When my daughter was in line at a cell phone place, she saw Tony Hawk in line. I met his mother in line at Palomar College (San Marcos, CA) several years ago (he was just gaining some notoriety at that point and she was telling me about him--definitely a proud mom! She was nice).

For a near-miss--my dad owns and manages a sewing machine/vacuum cleaner store in Escondido, CA and was in the back doing paperwork one day. He heard a familiar voice, but the person was gone by the time he got out front. It turned out Tom Selleck had come in to buy some vacuum cleaner belts or bags. My dad asked the kid who had served him why he didn't come back and get him so he could meet him, and the kid said, "You were busy." Tom Selleck and his brother had just bought a mall there not long before that.

Think I spotted Elvis at the "'In-N-OUT" Burger Drive through. (He ordered the double-double, fries & chocolate milkshake.)
