    Not sure.  I've met quite a few famous people.  I got to dust off Rob Lowe's shoulders for a photo shoot so that was a high for me.

    John Diefenbaker, and Kim Campbell are well known in Canada...  Don Cherry, Keanu Reeves, and Martin Short.  I've met them too.  Scott Thompson (comedian) was my neighbour.

    You know something? I am 50 years old. I grew up in New York City. I lived in New York the first 24 year of my life. For the last 26 years I have lived in Phoenix Arizona. Despite living in such large metropolitan areas (where celebrities often frequent), I have never meant anyone famous in my entire life! Do you think that's strange? Tell me, have you met alot of famous people? Well, I may not know any famous people, but I can promise you this: I sure will be having alot to say about Hollywood and the rich and famous in some of my future blogs. So I hope you will become a loyal follower. So far I feel like I'm writting to myself. So please start reading me and tell all your friend and family too. promise I really am an interesting person. Well at least I think so.

    Kamal Hassan:Super hit and trend setting telugu movie Arundathi was dubbed to Tamil and got a good response there. Now there are rumors that Arundathi will be re-made to Hindi and none other than Kamal Hassan will be doing the role of Sonu Sood. It is also heard that Anushka will be doing the same role in Hindi. We will have to wait and see how far this news is true.

    I used to be friends with Seal years ago when I lived in London. Interesting story to how we met, might make a good hub!

    We used to party in Soho a lot in a little members only club so, used to mix in a regular crowd of people like Clive Owen and even Eric Clapton one night.

    Met Princess Di a few times too when she was shopping down Kensington High Street.

    Let's see...I have been in the same airport gate area with Mohammed Ali twice.  I flew on the same plane with Nolan Ryan.  I have walked to baggage claim right beside Hal Holbrook in Tulsa and I had breakfast at a table next to Conway Twitty at a Holiday Inn. Does any of that count? LOL! WB

    That is hard to say, during the 60s I was heavilly into the London club scene and it was very easy to meet and mingle with pop stars then.  My cousin sometimes worked in John Mayal's club so I've met him, and briefly, Eric Clapton.

    I've met Robert Venditti author of The Surrogates, among other things. I also had the pleasure of participating in a workshop with Venditti as the guest commentator, and he reviewed our stories, making notes throughout and conveyed the level of ease/difficulty in transforming our prose works into a comic script. Beyond his knowledge and skill, I was impressed with his candor. He could be direct and insightful without seeming harsh or critical and was always relaxed and humble. A truly impressive writer.

    Last summer I met the entire cast of Chris and John to the rescue, which is a TV show on the logo channel. They were all pretty cool. But, there were a lot of other people there as well.
    It was a cast party, and they were filming a series

    I also met an actress from the movie Pleasantville at a film festival. (I can't recall her name) She was pretty nice, and answered some questions I had about maybe being an actor.
    I also met a guy from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Plus several other actors, one who currently has a sitcom.

    I also know a few porn stars if that counts.

    I met the Queen and Prince Phillip when they were opening the Birmingham's Children's Hospital. I was at a stand raising awareness of metabolic conditions and she stopped to have a look and a little talk. I can't remember anything about what the Queen said but Prince Phillip told me he was allergic to strawberries! haha.

    I stood outside a gig to meet Good Charlotte once and they were gorgeous and lovely and were willing to talk to everybody for ages, take pics, sign stuff.  It was when Benji was with Paris Hilton and she was there but just walked straight onto the tour bus. lol. I've  also met Stefan from The Midnight Beast and the guys from You Me At Six.

    OOoohh and Joe Pasqule. haha.

    I was invited for Dinner at 10 Downing Street  for my work as a Doctor and Medical  teacher and met our then Prime Minister Tony Blair, up close and personal.

    It was memorable for me, walking through the prime ministerial mansion, looking at paintings and tasting hors d'oeuvre from their kitchen and sipping champagne.

    I had a chance to speak to him and found him very approachable despite his busy schedule.

    Albert Pierrepoint, the most famous of all England's hangmen.
    I used to ride my pony with his daughter many years ago.  He was a lovely man with a lovely family, very proud of his skill, following in the tradition of hang men from his father and uncle.

    Small in stature, very quiet with a lovely sense of humour, a real family man, a gentleman.  I am very honoured to have known him

    I met Donnie Wahlberg at a casino last year after his concert. Well ok let's be honest here, I stood in a casino after a NKOTB concert waiting to see him. Does that count? He did say hi to me, LOL!

    About two years ago, I performed in a show with a fellow by the name of Damien, when his brother came to the show, we were all very interested to find out that he was Justin Long. I got to talk to him, very casually, I might add, about acting in general, but I didn't specifically bring up any of his movies, though I did tell him that I respected his talent. I've seen him three times since then.

    I guess Derek Jeter & Jorge Posada.  Ran into them at Starbucks before a game in Baltimore.  It was very cool because we (my hubs and I) are Yankees fans and that's why we were there!

    I met Paul Newman when I was president of a student organization in Wisconsin.  I presented him with a pool cue.  Boy, that dates me.  I sat next to "Get Down" James Brown on an airplane that was fun.  I was invited by Chief John McLeod, Clan Chief of the McLeods to visit his home, Dunvegan Castle, on the Isle of Sky.  I accepted and visited when his son Stephen turned 21.  Stephen performed a recital for us in the drawing room where I sat under the Fairy Flag of Scotland.  Mark Hansen, who writes the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books, is a good friend of mine.  I think I can count him as famous, now.      Gee...this is fun.

    I would say the most famous would be the Jacksons. When the Jacksons were performing together, they came to our city to launch one of their albums. I stood in line to get their autographs and got to meet all the Jacksons, including Michael Jackson.
