Default Do you know any famous people?

As the title says...do you?

I've met a couple but off the top of my head I know two personally to the point I forget they're famous.

They would be country singers Brantley Gilbert and Corey Smith.

I see them almost all the time where I work and around town. Corey Smith's sons go to school with my nephew. I talk to Brantley's mom all the time and his grandmother, and I've groomed his dog and his dad's Bulldogs.

At work I talk to them and while they're very famous guys here in my small town they're normal people and we forget they're famous musicians.

So yeah....do any of you guys know famous people?

Seth MacFarlane. While I don't know him personally, my mom worked with his father for many years, and we have a bunch of his doodles and works from when he was a kid and a couple of things he had done from high school projects.

Not on a deep personal level, and most are friends of friends. Professional athletes, and entertainers. Personally don't get the fascination with famous people, though. They're just people.

Nope. I'm weird like that though.. I will LOVE a celebrity's work, but avoid things like tabloids, personal interviews, meeting them in person..
I think it just kills the fantasy for me lol I'd much rather just enjoy their work than "know them".

I did meet the target dog once! lol he licked my cheek! so I consider him a friend
I've met plenty of famous people, but none enough to "know them" or where I felt the experience was enough to even qualify them as an acquaintence lol

YES! Thank you! You are the first person other than me that's said that and it makes me happy.

I drive my sister nuts because she'll go "Let me send you so and so's interview from the show we both like" and I'll have to go "No! Don't! I don't want to see it ever. Can't watch it!"

I just don't want to know because it ruins something for me. I like to fully immerse myself in characters and finding out they are real people totally kills it for me.

I can agree with this too. I remember watching The Talking Dead, which is basically where the episode is discussed and they often bring the actors/actresses on. It was so weird for me to see Daryl, not as Daryl. I just struggle to see the actor/actress being anyone other than their character, if they're from a favourite TV series. Movies are a different story though.

Haha right? Nobody else seems to understand!!
I have this huge personal fear that I will run into an author of one of my favorite books and they will be really mean to me.
The book would, of course, then by ruined.. which would of course give me some kind of mental breakdown

So I just avoid authors period. ..Unless it's a book signing, in which case it's really just kind of forcefully pleasant/fast and I just want their signature in my book. Otherwise, avoid them or stare from afar and note what they are eating/what book they are reading

Celebrities I avoid all-together. I have no interest in autographs or pictures or telling them about my obsessions or what they are like in real life lol don't know, don't care.

Authors I kind of am stunned and in awe of their talent and stories and want to know who they are as people to kind of better understand their books sort of.. there is a fascination there moreso than other celebs. I do read interviews sometimes.

..Actors? Musicians? don't know don't care. Like your show, like your movie, like you songs..that's all I need to know.

Oh and Athletes? Ha. You are lucky if I even sort of kind of know who you are or what sport you play.

Oh and my family brings up this story every chance they get.

D. Wade (the basketball player) lives in our building in Miami.
I had NO IDEA who he was.

He comes onto the elevator and kind of scares me (comes out of nowhere) I'm like "Woah You are really tall."
and he smiles and is like "Yea, I know, thanks, people tell me I should play basketball"
and I'm like "You totally should!"
and he's like "I'll think about it, cute dog! See you around!"

... only later when I saw his face on a bilboard that I was like
Oh
My
God


..he is on Miami heat.
He plays basketball

He was totally messing with me!! LOL

This.



Though I do have a second cousin in the NHL... he got drafted to my city's team a couple years back. Does that count?

ETA: OMG. Yes, I do. My Uncle is famous. I can't believe I forgot.
