Saw her on some talk show a couple of months ago.
I just googled her age. She is 75. I was a few feet away from her at my job and I wouldve guessed she is 65.

Exactly! The question was simply whether or not we have seen anyone, not how we reacted when we saw them.

Stevie Wonder came to the church that we used to attend in L.A. for our old pastor's birthday. He sang a gospel song, but I can't recall which one now.


We saw Denzel Washington at a Laker game back in the Forum days, but I don't know if we can count Laker games since celebs were always there back then *lol*. If we can count Laker games, then of course Jack Nicholson was at every Laker home game that I went to when we still lived in L.A.

Fairly recently I walked by John Turturro in SoHo (in NYC) and didn't even turn my head. The celebrities just want to be left alone, and since I was trained as a lawyer, I was always taught that we all put our pants on the same way: one leg at a time. I would therefore be more excited to be able to meet certain people who I personally hold in high esteem. Those people are not entertainers.
I'm fairly certain no one said they almost lost it when they saw someone.

While I agree that no one so far that has posted seemed to have been star stuck, I found it humorous that a few people listed almost everyone that have seen.

Pulled up next to Colin Ferrel at the Starbucks in Studio City two weeks ago. My friend asked if that was someone famous next to us so I looked and it was. He was in his Escalade smoking away as if he was in True Detective character form. Didn't say anything and just walked into Starbucks. Been here since the last week of January and people are telling me that that was pretty quick to see my first celeb already. Is it?

I'm kind of speaking for someone else because I'm on the east coast but I have a buddy who's originally from Long Beach, CA and I remember he told me that back in the 90s he was at a mall in Long Beach somewhere and he told me he saw the woman that played "Justine" (Theo's girlfriend) from "The Cosby Show" walking through the mall with a friend of hers shopping.

Wasn't she the one that passed away before the show ended?

She died before "Family Matters" (another show she was on where she played Steve Urkel's girlfriend) went off the air. She died in '97 or '98.
