Ron Jeremy is the only "celebrity" I have seen TWICE. The last time he was wearing pink crocs.

My favorite sighting so far has been King Buzzo eating brunch at the Grove. Hey, he is a celebrity in my book.

Do tell.......no names needed, just in general.

Too many to count. But I also don't really pay attention. A lot of celebrities do a good job disguising themselves with hats and sunglasses. Sometimes I'll be with a friend and they'll point out some celebrity,a nd I just shrug.

I've lived in both SF and LA and the celebrity-spotting is easier in SF because it's more compact. Grab a seat at the WASHBAG or the Cannery and they'll come by.

I saw Bob Hope at a bookstore once signing a book he wrote in 1986, and when I was about to say hi to him he wouldnt even look at me, he kept looking past me and didnt want to talk to me, even though I had his book so he could sign it.

I remember walking right past him as he came from the back of the store during his book signing, he was shorter than I thought, maybe 5 ft 7' to 5 ft 8"

I rented a car to singer RAY CHARLES back in the 1980's, he was with his wife, I remember he was wearing sunglasses and he was listening to me when I gave them their rental car.

I also met actor George Takei from the show Star Trek, he was a very friendly guy in person, this was back in the late 1970's

Saw James Hetfield get out of his jeep with an open beer can and put it down on a small retaining wall just before entering Barney's Beanery in 1990.

i've been here six years and am totally oblivious to anything related to celebrities but the few that come to mind:

- Kristen Dunst at LAX and was on my flight (1st class) flying to Austin
- Reese Withersoon at lunch with a friend in Brentwood
- Jon Lovitz eating lunch with Dana Carvey in Larchmount Village
- Adam Carolla in Burbank
- Sayid from the TV show LOST in Santa Monica, walking with his son down Montana
- Dustin Brown from the KINGS hockey team running in Manhattan Beach
- Rachel McAdams walking around at STAPLES Center
- Steve Tyler from Aerosmith on Sunset Blvd (I walked by during a photo shoot, not sure if that counts or not)
- The guy who played NEWMAN on Seinfeld at the Auto Show

LOL , I saw Newman at Vendome liquor. I saw a guy having a long conversation with the an employee about different whiskies. He looked familiar. But his look isn't super distinct really in L.A
Then I saw that he lived in the area.

I've seen Leonardo Dicaprio years and years ago driving on Sunset Blvd
Keaneu Reeves at a jonathan richman concert years ago at the El Rey
OJ Simpson golfing at Rancho Park golf course (post trial)
Heidi Montag driving on Sunset near Brentwood
Al Pacino at Mar Vista Lanes
Vince Vaughn at another bowling alley that closed down. Hollywood Lanes I think?
Sean Penn - 3rd street promenade in SM
Danny Devito when I was younger at the AMC theatres in Century City. He's pretty easy to spot because of his height.

Probably more that I can't think of.

Didn't know blind people have driver's license. Ray was more talented than I thought. Lol
