I live in Los Angeles (hollywood) and i see celebrities all the time, well, not all the time but often LOL !
I see Kim Kardashian the gym i go to (Equinox on Sunset Blvd.) but ive never asked for an autograph or try to talk to her. I have to say that whwn you live in LA seeing famous people its pretty normal, you see them and walk away, we dont get all crazy over them.
Ashley Tishdale goes to Equinox too, the days i go in the morning she is there and again, never met her.
One of the others that go to Equinox is Perez Hilton, even tho he isnt famous, he just runs a trashy blog. Kanye West girlfriend's used to go there, i havent seen her in year. I forgor her name.
David Navarro (Carmen's Electra boyfriend or ex, i dont know) and JC from "N'sync" go to Equinox as well. The majority of celebrities go betweem 10:00 am and 12:00 when the gym is literally dead, they dont want to be bother.
Funny story, one day i was walking my dog and i saw JC (N'sync) at a the gas station down the street from my home, i took my phone out of my pocket and i took a pic of him. He was so polite that he waited for me to grab my phone and turn the camera on. I have the pic to prove it lol !

Another story, maybe a month or two months ago i was driving back home (i was 2 blocks away from my street) and i stopped at a red light and next to me was Collin Farrell. I smiled at him and he smiled back. I met him at a premiere in Hollywood before, he was sweet.

Ive met (meaning talk to them, asked for autograph or picture) to Julia Roberts, incredible rude, not nice at all. Nothing like you see her in the movies, she is the opposite.
-Jessica Simpson (i saw her while she was pumping gas in her car lol) is nice, not extremely nice but nice.
- George Clooney, very nice, he treats you like you are his friend.
- Sharon Osbourne, nice and friendly.
- Queen Latifah. I met her when i used to be a member of "Crunch" (a gym). We used to take the same kickboxing class on mondays. I found out after a while that she used to go there because the instructor was her girlfriend haha. Queen used to live in the next street over to my house but recently (well, like a year ago) she moved out. And now that im talking about this, 2 blocks down my street lives a famous person but i dont know who is it. Ive been living in this house for almost 12 years and i never saw who lives there. I know that someone famous live there because i always see paparazzis waiting outside.

- Pamela Anderson, she is friendly but that's it. She is the type "say hello to me and i'll take a pic with you but after that turn around and walk away" (i have a pic with her).
- Jamie Lee Curtis, one of the nicest people ive ever met. Sweet, cute and lovely.
- Joaquin Phoenix, not very nice.
- Pink, extremely nice that she would grab your camera and take a pic of you and her. (i have a pic with her)
-Dennis Rodman (Madonna's ex-boyfriend), horrible rude. I hate him.
- Sofia Vergara, i met her at Ihops in West Hollywood. All you could do with her was to talk because according to her contract she couldnt sign autographa. *****, pleeeease. Nobody in the restaurant knew who she was (I knew her because im latino. This was back in 2003 when she wasnt famous or very well-known). Now everyone knows her but not at that time. So, she is nice but that's it.

Well, those are the ones i remember now, i'll be posting more as soon as i remember.

I was at the Kentucky derby this year and met Guy Fieri, The man couldn't of been any nicer. The next day we were eating lunch and he happen to be sitting next to us with his wifeand some friends. There was a kids musical group playing in front of the restaurant and he went out and met them all. What a class act!

When "Northern Exposure" was being shot in Roslyn WA, some friends and I drove there from Portland to watch the filming. The town itself is very interesting so even when they weren't shooting the show it was fun.

Anyway, all the actors with one exception were so nice.

Barry Corbin (Maurice) was smiling and chatting with everyone at Roslyn's restaurant. He even let people put kids on his knee to have their picture taken. John Corbett (Chris) on whom I had a huge crush, got to the door of the only restroom in the restaurant at the same time. He graciously let me go first while he waited his turn. It's difficult to pee when you know John Corbett is right outside waiting to use the facilities.

We didn't see John Cullum but Cynthia Geary (Shelly) walked by and waved and smiled. Janine Turner (Maggie) and Darrin Barrows (Ed) where in a shoot but in between takes they waved to the spectators. Barrows had his antique movie camera and pretended to be making movies of the crowd.

I later on met Elaine Miles (Marilyn Whirlwind) at a powwow in Portland where she proudly showed me a Black Hills gold ring she bought with her "TV money" as she called it. She was sweet as can be.

The only jerk, and I do mean jerk, was Rob Morrow (Joel Fleishman). He would not allow the crowd to watch the taping as the others did. He insisted everyone get way far back from the scene which was much farther than the normal distance that was allowed. His handler sheepishly explained that an audience diminished his concentration. He's an actor for Pete's sake. Audiences are what it's all about. Little Prima Donna that one.

Once he was filming across from the Brick. Some of us were watching through the window. He couldn't see us but he suspected people were in there. He looked in the direction of the building and scowled.

It was nice to know though, that all the others were such nice people.

great post. I assumed as much about Rob Morrow. His ego is far greater than his talent

Default My adventures with celebritydome

I have like 4 or 5 stories for you all. I'm ecstatic that I found this forum, seeing as how most of the people I tell these stories to don't believe me and these are all the best nights of my life! So I'm sure most of you have experienced the same disbelief.

A friend of mine and I were staying at a hotel in South Beach. It was about 3AM and we had just gotten back to the lobby and were sitting on a bench directly around the corner from the elevator, too exhausted to go up yet. Next thing you know, what looked like a short, portly teenager comes around the corner from out of the elevator. He was wearing sunglasses and looked kind of familiar. Didn't think anything of it, until 2-3 very large security looking guys and one extremely foxy blond come around behind him. Not until he had already left the hotel did I look at my friend and said, "dude...I think that was Andy Milonakis". We sat and debated, trying to remember what he looked like, because this was only 2 years ago and I had not seen him on anything in a while. Then we both jumped up ran down the block to the corner that they were standing on waiting for the cross walk screaming "Andy!, Andy!". He was insanely nice. By this time it was around 3:30AM and he was just leaving for the bars. His security, which were actually just a couple hired friends were kind of mocking us and actually photobombed our picture lol. But Andy was so extremely nice. I told him a story about how 2-3 years prior, when the Andy Milonakis show was still very popular, I had been walking down the street in NYC, when I mentioned to the friend I was with at the time that a dog we walked past looked like "Wubby", Andy's dog from the show. The lady walking him overheard and exclaimed that it was, and Andy would normally be with her, but he was in LA doing Jimmy Kimmel at the time. I ended up walking Wubby all through central park. He appreciated the story, and soon left for the bars. However, my friend and I (like total stalkers) waited out front of the hotel until he got back. Around 5AM a taxi pulled up and he got out by himself. He actually came up to us and proceeded to converse with us about ourselves, acting like he was no one special. Extremely down to earth guy. We actually ended up smoking some pot in his penthouse suite out of a corncob pipe that we had bought earlier that weekend at a gas station for like 5 bucks, lol. We stashed it and made it through airport security with it and I still have it : )

About 3 years ago I was in Lawrence, KS, because I go to the best school in the world, The University of Kansas...ROCK CHALK! But a friend of mine called me up and asked if I wanted to come hang out and just watch a movie or something, said he was keeping it a low-key night. All I knew was that he was hanging out at his current "hook-up's" house, a girl named Abbie. When I walked in the door, I said hello and took the only open seat on the two couches, next to a beautiful blonde girl. I had been there for about 5 minutes already and didn't even recognize her, until I turned to introduce myself and she said, "Hi, I'm Taylor". I immediately froze, haha. I was sitting next to Taylor Swift! Haha, I kept my cool though and acted as if it was nothing the whole night. Which I think she really liked, because we ended up sharing a blanket and watching the movie I picked out, Romeo & Juliet, the newer one with Leonardo DiCaprio. I picked it because I was currently obsessed with her song "Love Story" at the time, haha. To this day, I still have her number and get a text whenever she's in town, either performing or hanging out with her best friend, Abbie. Abbie is actually who most of her songs are written about. "Fifteen" is a true account of Abbie's high school days.

Another time in Lawrence, I went to The Game's concert, he is my all-time favorite rapper. We ended up getting in from a road trip to and from California pretty late and went straight to the venue. However, it was already sold out : (! But, alas! Many of my friends are in bands and I was always their roadie or merch guy, so I knew that the back door was never ever locked. My buddy and I ended up sneaking back stage and watched the whole concert, had the best seats in the house. After the show, I figured, "What the hell, it's not like I would regret getting kicked out now". So, I waited until the encore was over, and went up to him on the way out to shake his hand. He ended up inviting my buddy and I onto the bus. He said we reminded him of himself when he was young sneaking into concerts and ****, just to see someone he was a huge fan of. My buddy ended up declining and waiting outside, because he was "straight-edge", however, I proceeded to smoke copious amounts of doobage and drank myself silly. Needless to say, my friend had not waited and was gone by the time I came stumbling out lol.

One time in Austin, another buddy of mine and I made a road trip to go see Chamillionaire and visit a friend. After the show, I stuck my head in the back window of his crowded stretch hummer limo, yelled "Yo Cham, you wanna smoke some bleezies?" lol and held up the pack of 5 blunts I had wrapped in case I somehow got in. Haha, I had learned my lesson from the Game, always come prepared. He was a ways down the limo, but to this day I swear he said, "Yea, let them in." But once I walked around the the sidewalk where the open door was, it was slammed in my face by this snarky white dude in a suit, who I can only imagine is his PR or something, only because he looked at me through the open window and said, "Cham don't smoke" and rolled the window up. So, after that we went down to 6th St. I was only 20 at the time, and I had gotten denied with my fake at a bar, but my 2 other friends who were actually younger got in, haha. So they kinda ditched me, said they would be back out in a second, but the bar was shoulder to shoulder and I knew it wasn't going to be quick. 15 minutes went by and no sign of them. Now, 6th St. on a weekend night is completely blocked off and no cars come through, so you can walk wherever you want on the block. When I turned to look at the street, I see a HUGE group walking down the very center of it. At the helm is Lil Wayne, slumped over, gangster leanin on this super fine dime piece. It was right before his mixtape, "No Ceilings", came out, but it had been leaked so my buddy and I had been listening to it on the whole drive down from Kansas to Austin. So, I ran up to him and imitated how he says it on the cd. I felt like a ghost, he didn't even turn to acknowledge my presence lol. So, I "leveled" with him and was like, "Yo, Weezy, I just wanted to shake your hand, man." After that he gave me a hand slap and said, "was up was up". All the while, never turning to look at me from under his shades.

Now, back to Lawrence, aside from smoking and/or drinking with all of the KU basketball players on a regular basis from Brandon Rush, Sherron Collins, Cole Aldrich, Josh Selby, Brady Morningstar, to Marcus and Markieff Morris and Travis Releford. Now, I had hung out with Mario Chalmers a couple times while he was a student, but the summer after the Heat made a run in the playoffs (2010, I believe), and he especially stood out, he was in Lawrence for one night for some Alumni thing. My buddy called me up, told me he and Mario were chilling and asked me to find a sack of bud. Little did I know, by sack he meant a whole ounce. So I bagged one up and rolled on over, with Sports Illustrated National Championship Game Tie-ing 3 Point Buzzer Beater Shot poster in hand. There was about 11 of us and we rolled 15 blunts. The whole ounce was gone shortly after and he well overpaid me for it. Super nice dude. I actually have a pair of his KU game shorts that say "Chalmers" in sharpie on the inside band.

I'm sure I'll think of a couple more. I'll post them if I do! : ) Thanks for reading if you did!

TL;DR - Andy Milonakis/Wubby, Taylor Swift, The Game, Chamillionaire/Lil Wayne, and a bunch of KU basketball/NBA players. All of them were much more than nice and it was a huge pleasure meeting them all. Those previous posters are right though, how you approach and treat them basically determines how they react.

Billy Joel when he was married to Christie Brinkley, funny nice guy !

Donald Trump - a bit snobby ... he gave autographs, but was a bit annoyed by being asked.

Rachael Ray - she's neurotic when the cameras are off- yells at her staff, and does not like any mistakes, or slip-ups. VERY serious. She's a bit phoney IMHO.

Kelly & Regis - George Clooney was a guest that day I was there, all 3 were fantastic !!! Kelly comes and sits with the audience during commercial breaks, she's so sweet, and genuine. I love her even more now that I met her ... George was super funny, and I love his liberal side. I've always been a fan.

Katie Couric- not so friendly at all - she doesn't like fans approaching her and has no issue telling them. "NOT NOW" !

Dwight Yokam, SO NICE! Tall, and handsome ... he seemed almost shy ...


Quincy Jones and his son. His son is HOT- blue, blue eyes- beautiful !

Michael Douglas at a Broadway show, The Mountain Top. He sat 5 seats away from me - very quiet, and nonchalant ... he was escorted in, and tried to blend in- didn't talk to anyone. He looks exactly like he does on TV- a bit smaller in frame, and height.

And, I sat near Robin Williams and his lady friend in Boston at a restaurant- he didn't want to be bothered- it was an outside cafe, by the water.

Nicest, hands down was John Travolta. He was filming Wild Hogs when I lived in Albuquerque and actually said, "Hello, beautiful" to me. I was on cloud nine for weeks!!!!!

Rudest is a two way tie.....

Spike Lee - watched him have a tantrum years ago on the Vineyard at a restaurant and walk out without paying the bill.

Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics - complete *******. Refused to sign autographs for some kids when I lived in Boston. I was so shocked since he was a legend.

Too funny! Poor John has been beat up in the press lately.....his sexual preference doesn't matter to me. He took the time to tell me a woman, I'm beautiful....I love the guy!!!! He was way nicer than anyone else in that movie.
Martin Lawrence and that tv actor "Tim the Tool Man Taylor" (whatever his name is) could have followed Travolta's lead when they were filming in New Mexico.
I also remember meeting Alice Cooper at the Albuquerque Sunport back then. He was really nice, a normal guy.....waiting by himself for a ride. We chatted for a really long time about colleges - his kid was going to school in Arizona somewhere. Sweet guy.
