Crappy brushes with celebrity - your experiences

I'm not talking about the time you met your favourite band in the bar after the gig and spent the night partying with them, I'm after tales of those times you remember but they most definitely don't.

  • I once sat on the bus to work next to Roots Manuva.

  • I once waited in line behind William H Macy as he bought Lego at Hamley's.

  • In a crowded, scuzzy nightclub there was one free table with some long-haired grebo passed out on it, head in arms. My friend lifted his head and it was that guy from The Darkness.

  • As a kid I played Crazy Golf with Roy Walker.

  • Juliette Lewis once knocked over my pint.

  • I once ate a piece of Morrissey's Birthday cake.

Your turn...

Mitch Mitchell from GBV spilt beer on me and almost fell on me and then he shook my hand.

I ran up on stage and hugged Bob Nastanovitch of Pavement and he won't return my phone calls ;-;. But seriously I was still healing from my knee surgery so I had to quickly hobble over to him and figure out what to do when I got there.

I went with a buddy to the red carpet for the NHL Awards and Jon Hamm blew everyone off. He is handsome.


I watched the Aladdin live show at Disneyland and Jasmine looked at me and I'm pretty sure we shared a moment.

Too many celeb sightings to name during Comic Con adventures. So I'll just stick with the most important one. Stephen Baldwin. That photo's for my grandkids, for when I decorate their rooms in all things Bio-Dome.

Also, walked past that Holly what's-her-name-was-a-hugh-hefnor wife walking her tiny dog through a casino in Vegas.

I talked to Jenny Lewis after not knowing who Rilo Kiley was when they opened for a Milwaukee band about how to easily unwrap cds from their packaging. She had a neat trick. I forgot it. But it was nuts man. hearts

The only famous person I've ran into in public was Sam Perkins at a mall he was picking up a pizza. He had been playing good lately and my dad said "keep up the good work Sammy" he nodded and walked out.

A cooler story that I had nothing to do with is my aunt and cousin were eating at a diner in our town and Alec Baldwin was eating there too. Someone walked up and said "You look like Alec Baldwin" and he responded "I am" then continued eating.

He was in our town to finish work on a book he was writing with someone who lives here. The same guy got to go to the Super Bowl with him and sat next to Ron Howard. So no I've never brushed with anyone famous but I know people who have. Maybe I should hang out with more people.

Ditto for Adam Savage from MythBusters.

I did not speak to either one.

Also one time I was working in another store, and a guy came in saying his dad was the guy who painted the original Dogs Playing Poker. Not sure he was legit, but if so, man, that's neat.

my mom has better crappy stories:

She once saw Dana Carvey putting on a wetsuit in Hawaii.

She once shared a plane (not a seat) with Richard Lewis.

She once rented out a house to like Brendan Fraser's sister or something.


i was on a plane with Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite

on the return flight from that same trip, i was on a plane with Brian Billick

Billick sat in first class. Pedro sat in coach.

Mischa Barton walked by me at a small concert in LA. I'm pretty sure she checked me out. I'm pretty sure it was because i had the same kind of scummy, long-haired look that the dude she was with had.

I walked I walked past J Lo at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. I saw a beautiful, tiny woman (she was really beautiful), and didn't realize who she was until i turned around and checked out her ass. huge.

Mathew Mcconnagheyaayhaa however you spell his name..came to my work. He was greasy looking. The chicks in the office all orgasmed. even the gay ones.

I saw Mark McGwire at the mall by my house. His forearm circumference was rounder than my waist.

I saw that Audrina chick from some reality show at a pet store in newport beach. I was browsing with my kids. people were all a titter. I had no idea who she was. she did NOT check me out. bitch.

I saw Kobe Bryant at a mall in newport beach. HE'S FUCKING HUGE

Kurt Rambis is part owner of my company. HE IS ALSO FUCKING HUGE

i feel like there are more...


oh..i've had many run ins with Mike Ness as well


not, like, negative ones, though...he's really a decent dude

martiandrivein on Nov 15 '11 at 9:38pm So, seriously I love how timely this blog is. I just peed next to Owen Wilson. He came into the restaurant I was at, as I was on my way to the bathroom. and we were in the bathroom, and I pissed next to him. but guy code maintains that you don't talk in the bathroom, so I didn't say anything to him.

You weren't just pissing by a mirror?

First celeb I bumped into: Christopher Biggins in an airport on family hols as a kid. Probably around the time he was in 'Rentaghost'.

Last celeb I bumped into: Rimmer from Red Dawrf was getting off the same steam train in Totnes.


Funny, Billy, Stephen and Alec Baldwin were all spotted in this blog.

My husband and I once walked past Brad Garrett in New York. I knew that he was tall, but FUCK, HE'S TALL.
