Nope!!

Honestly, I've never even heard of most "famous people." Sometimes I'll recognize someone in a movie and it'll dawn on me that I've seen them before, and people will be like "That's Blah BlahBlah!! He was in blah blah blah blah blah!!" and I'm just kinda like "oh... I see." Or someone will mention some name that I've never heard of, and assume is some obscure actor... and everybody knows who they are. Even most famous names, I've heard of them but have no idea who they are or what they look like Ann Hathaway? The name is familiar, but i have no face or accomplishments. Not that I don't watch stuff... I watch lots of movies and such... I just am bad with faces I guess, and I don't pay attention to who plays what.

I don't think I've ever even seen a famous person (that I know of)... I guess at concerts.

Nope definitely am not friends with any lol.

Jamie bestwick (something like 7 time dew cup champ for bmx)... Well, I've only met him a few times but my fiancé & he used to converse regularly... They both ride (bikes) and we used to live fairly close.

My cousin is a model, if that counts... Ummmm I don't know. Dog people? I met Kevin Fitzgerald from E-vets once.

I've met and even hung out with plenty of famous people, but haven't really been friends with or interacted regularly with them. I had one famous friend/pen-pal for a while. My best friend's cousin is a very famous actor, but I haven't see him since I was a kid. My parents were close to Britney spears' fiance's parents at one point. Lots of things like that.

I know lots of people who are I guess "sort of famous" either local musical artists who are famous in the area, or had clients who were things like producers, high profile lawyers, philanthropists, etc. the kind of people you wouldn't recognize but if you heard who they were you'd know about what they did or were involved in.

This. We have supposedly famous people coming into work all the time and I just nod and smile and treat them like anyone else. I really don't care, and I doubt they want to be treated differently than anyone else. . .

I think it just kills the fantasy for me lol I'd much rather just enjoy their work than "know them".
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.
