I had beers and chill time with every one of the (friendly) members of the cast. Mark Rolston is a trip...I will never be able to watch Shawshank Redemption and believe him as a monster again! Michael Biehn wouldn't hang out with his fellow Aliens alums at all, even in private. He really seems to have problems.

Some of the stars have issues w/ the public now, but when they were trying to be famous--they couldn't wait to be in front of the public. I think a lot of "stars" should remember their fans are part of their "star" equation. I get wanting your privacy, but I suppose it's the price they do have to pay.

I can't imagine approaching any celebrity anywhere for an autograph. It just seems so, desperate. However, I will say, if I saw Dave Grohl in a bar, I'd buy him a beer. He's too cool not to.

Maria Sharapova by far....she is as fake as it can be...we knw her for years and she was rude and nasty but when the tv cameras are arround she will be turn to be very nice.

Dutch tv caught her red handed when she thought the cameras were off...

My son was 7 years old when he got a piece of Maria's nastyness and my daughter knew he for a long time as well as I do and she is just not a nice person!

I met the famous Mexican soap opera actress & talk show host Veronica Castro when I taught her English. She was very nice, polite, down to earth, friendly & kind in all situations in & out of the classroom.

Really hot in person (at least she was when the movie first came out).

Always thought she was much better looking than Julia.

I was a huge fan of hers when I watched her years ago.

When I was just a little kid many decades ago, I met Art Linkletter at an auto show in Chicago and my dad took my picture with him. Always remembered that day, though I really didn't have a clue who Art was at the time, thought he was just some nice friendly guy who was shaking hands and trying to sell cars!

I haven't met him, but Keanu Reeves is supposedly a true gentleman, and quite humble for someone with his wealth and fame.

This thread has provided some real entertainment! Sobering, though, I used to admire Jimmy Carter


Has anyone met David Gilmour...?

Has anyone met Ian Anderson?

Has anyone met B.B. King?
