Default Do you know any famous people?

As the title 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 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

Disclaimer: I work for Trupanion and love it/our policy! But I do not speak for the company or as the company.

My boyfriend is well known in the southern secular community. That's as close as it gets for me. Lol.

I don't know if anyone is familiar with Allison Krauss and Union Station, but I know the guy from Union Station, Dan Tyminski. I was good friends with his daughter growing up, his family attended our church for many years. Him and his wife are separated now, but we still are in close contact with her and the kids.

Other than that, I've only had "sightings" lol! Living near Nashville, we see quite a few famous people. I live right down the road from the farm where Miley Cyrus grew up and Billy Ray still lives there. I've been in his driveway lol!!

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.

No, but I know someone who knows someone who is relatively well-known. My aunt's boyfriend is an actor and has been in a few commercials (we were watching TV one night when we saw him on a KFC commercial and went, "Brian?!?"), but he's also been a stunt double for John Travolta.
