Nice and not very nice celebrities who you have met (merged)
 
I have not really met any celebrities myself apart from local radio djs and stuff who will mean nothing to most people but friends and family have met the following celebrities and this is what they thought of them:

Nice:
David Beckham
Sir Alex Fergusson (this came from my dad who is a Liverpool fan so he must be a genuinly nice man)
Steven Gerrard
Wayne Rooney
John Mills (grandparents met him many years ago and said he was very down to earth and not at all stuck up spoke to everyone)



Not Nice
Yvette Fielding. Apparently she is a bit of a cow to work for on Most Haunted. Why do you think the other people on the show don't stick around very long? Allegedly she got rid of Derek Acorah not because he was a fake but because she thought he was becoming the star of the show- Derek on the other hand is meant to be a nice man.

Any more stories like this?

I was chatting to Robson Green at a barbecue a few years ago and I'd avoid him like the plague if I ever saw him again. He was totally up himself and took no interest in what anyone else was saying. What a knobhead and a bore :yawn:

BTW, I'm 5ft 7 and I towered over him. Small man syndrome?

Geoff Capes was a horrible nasty man.As was Robbie Coltrane.Alan Shearer is a gent and so is Peter Beardsley.

biskit 03-11-2008 16:36

I met Joanna Lumney, Jan Francis & Barry Mcgwigan ( soz if spelt wrong )
Joanna & Jan were really lovely. Barry was looking for a pressy for wife in the reduced section lol. I also stood at the cashpoint and one of the duo Reeves & Mortimer ( the one with glasses) came and pushed in front of me. I wasn't impressed at all.

I spent last Wednesday evening with Jamie Theakston and Harriet Scott (Heart fm breakfast) at the television awards, as I won a comp to sit with them in their box. They were both lovely.

Nigel Harman - met a couple of times. He is very nice

Richard and Lea from BB7. Won comp to go in limo with them to opening of celebrity Big Brother Hijack in January. Very friendly and chatty

Dermot O'Leary - met a few times and always talks to his fans

Louis Walsh and Danni Minogue came to speak to us when won VIP tkts to X Factor last yr. Nice of them to do that

Ben Shepherd at a MIchael Buble Magic radio event was friendly but his wife was not. She didn't want us to have photo taken with him. Ben happily posed for photo with us.

I've met loads of others who have all been friendly.

I work for quite a few, and they always surprise me. I do find the relatively anonymous PLC directors and CEOs to be, in general, more polite, but a fair few celebs are nice. Peter Andre surprised me, Jordan sadly did not. Salomon Kalou was great, as was his girlfriend. Another black chelsea player I could mention, was unspeakable, but his apparently oikish girlfriend was actually rather charming. And as pretty in real life as on your TV. Burton and Bonham Carter, odd but nice.

KBBJ 03-11-2008 18:03

Nicest one I've ever met was Paul Whitehouse, without question. He could be a contender for Most Decent Bloke in the UK, frankly, not just in the celeb world.

Robbie Coltrane was good fun too. No really nasty ones, just those who were having a bad day.

laur_od 03-11-2008 18:15

Lovely
suzanne shaw - the nicest, warmest, funniest and most down to earth celeb you could meet and thats why i get annoyed at some threads on here.
Likewise myleene klass is also extremely friendly and very normal yet again takes a slagging on here...
Leo Di Caprio - nice bloke, surprisely tall, i thought he'd be tiny...
Connie Fisher - really friendly

not nice, cate blancett, completely up her own a*se
Danni minogue - horrendous

cavegirl79 03-11-2008 18:17

I met Timmy Mallett when I was a youngster - and he was utterly, utterly horrid.

Michaela Strachan from children' tv and Countryfile - she was absolutely wonderful, very down to earth and normal and spent half an hour chatting to me.

Fred 'the weatherman' Talbot - a real gent, posed for photos with us all and was very nice to talk to, and seemed a very pleasant man.

Toby Anstiss, again, another gent - spent ages chatting to me and my friends - gave autographs and was very friendly and charming.

Peter Kay, was ok -friendly enough - but was getting hassled by everyone in town so was a bit distracted

Sue Johnston - a lovely, friendly lady who had time for everyone - not the least bit up herself.

Bill Bailey, met him in Keswick - we had matching kagoules on lol - again, a very nice bloke

vidalia 03-11-2008 18:27

Very nice people I have met:

Stephen Fry
Graham Norton
Richard Whiteley
Charlie Higson
Julie Hesmondhalgh and Ian Kershaw
Will Young

Not so nice one:
Ronnie O'Sullivan who was unnecessarily rude to my son when he asked for his autograph

Croissantlover 03-11-2008 18:30

Saw Nick Cave in Waitrose in Brighton on Sunday afternoon.
(He's not hard to miss:p).
He was shopping with two of his kids.. very nice man

soapdiva 03-11-2008 19:12

I meet so many celebs in my line of work, and here is my opinions.
Nice
Jeremy Beadle was lovely
Simon Cowell is gorgeous
Sue Johnston is so down to earth she could be your auntie
Paul O'Grady is great too.
Dale Winton is lovely too.

Horrible
Barbara Windsor is dreadful
Cilla Black is even worse
Davina McCall - need I say more
Jordan
Agree about Ronnie O'Sullivan too - he's nasty and rude.

soapdiva 03-11-2008 19:15

Oh and I forgot, Trevor Eve could charm the knickers off a nun - he's gorgeous and a lovely man.

moonbaby 03-11-2008 19:16

What sort of jobs do you people who meet celebs in your line of work do?

We met Louis Walsh when we were at a wedding in Dublin a few years back. It was in the Four Seasons Hotel (his local apparently).

He was really friendly. My OH was in full Highland dress and Louis was like 'wow, what's all this then?'. He was really interested.

I think Louis's lovely! :D

firefliesuk 03-11-2008 19:34

My best friend has membership of somewhere where lots of celebs go.... mostly actors, and I go with her sometimes. The nicest one I've ever met was Robert Carlyle..... a real sweety and totally gorgeous. I haven't had any bad experiences with any of them. Billy Connolly & Debbie Harry were both really nice too..... and my fave, Boy George.

vidalia 03-11-2008 19:46

I work in research and that sometimes involves working in the media including TV, radio and newspapers.

RedBaroness 03-11-2008 19:51

Anthony Hopkins

Gorgeous, warm charming down to earth - wanted him to be my dad!:)

davlaur 03-11-2008 19:53

Has anyone ever met David Paisley actor of Tinsel Town and Holby City/Casualty Fame ????????? He is currently starring in Scottish soap River City !!!:)

Imogen M 03-11-2008 19:55

I've met quite a few celebs at stage doors and various conventions/fan events and film premieres and feel lucky that I've not met anyone who could be considered "mean" (although I find Morgan Freeman's hands-off attitude toward fans disappointing...if you ever see him, don't expect more than a wave). But ones who really stood out as going the extra mile for fans:

Johnny Depp
Jack Nicholson
Kate Winslet
John Barrowman
Catherine Tate
Philip Glenister
Eve Myles
Christian Bale

I want to give gold stars to Winslet and Nicholson becase it was a December when I met Winslet and a January when I met Nicholson. It was absolutely freezing but they still stayed outside signed autographs for ages. :)

Soulmate9 03-11-2008 19:59

^^ Viggo Mortensen's like that too. He makes time for absolutely everyone. Nice guy.
