OMG! Not exactly the sickly sweet way she comes over on the TV is it? Who the hell does she think she is? And trying to have you thrown out of, is it a shopping centre? Sorry I've never heard of Westfield

I'll never be able to look at the same way now, what a b!tch!

And who was the bloke she was with? It's OK, you can tell us, we won't tell anyone

EDIT: Good for your OH for putting her in her place
You do realise his post was entirely false? He hates her, always criticeses her yet never mentioned meeting her before?

Before you call me a liar I suggest get a source to back up your claim ,oh wait you can't because you were not there, stupidity is more than a state of mind where you are concerned, its your lifestyle.

I hate her, I criticise her, big bloody deal. You may worship her skinny knock kneed bones but i don't, DEAL WITH IT.

surprised at this,while she was doing her water sking practice down here, she and her crew used a local taxi to ferry them back to london.the driver was a friend of mine and he said how lovely she was and chatted away and was very approacable.
Could have been her PMS or just being a moody cow.

David Walliams and Matt Lucas.

Matt Lucas: Sort of pleasant, friendly.

David Walliams: Miserable, grumpy, unfriendly.

Aww, I have a soft spot for Jon Bon Jovi - disappointed to read that
my husband met him in a club about 6 years ago and said he was very friendly and bought everyone a drink-so u never know could just be having an off day

I have met quite a few celebs over the years, nicest one Ive met has to be Gemma Arterton. In 2008 I sent her a letter asking for a signed pic, recieved one back with a lovely letter which I have framed on my wall! Then in February this year I dragged my friend down to London to watch her perform in The Little Dog Laughed, we were lucky enough to see her before and after the play and both times she was very nice, signing autographs and taking pictures with fans outside who had been to the play.. she did refuse to sign for some people who were clearly ebayers but to everyone who had clearly been to the play she was charming

I also met Biffy Clyro at a single signing this January, we were told no pictures allowed with the band at the signing desk, however one of the security guards kindly brought the band over to me at the end so I could get a group photo with them!

Kelly Clarkson in February this year, heard she could be horrible but she signed autographs & posed for photos with about 7 fans outside her hotel in Liverpool, I can imagine it must get annoying but she was nice and managed to have a brief chat with her about Liverpool & the concert which was nice.

John and Edward of X Factor fame! You may laugh, but of the X Factor tour this year they were the only act who actually made time to go outside and talk to fans everywhere whereas many of the other acts *cough Olly and Stacey *cough* refused! Lucie, Danyl and Jamie were also nice on tour

Speaking of Lucie Jones, I had a meet and greet for her at one of her nightclub gigs and she didnt do it afterwards, after sending an e-mail to her management I recieved a letter and a signed photo from Lucie herself, and the offer of a meet and greet at another gig!

Ive met Avril Lavigne at an organised meet and greet, paid 320 for two tickets for me and my sister.. got about 10 seconds with her, she was nice but for 320 she had to be! Got thrown in and out of a photo with her, before we were allowed near her we got read a list of rules 'dont touch her' 'dont ask for more than one autograph' etc!

The only really horrible celeb Ive met has been Hayley Williams from Paramore. She was a horror back in 2007. There was about 6-8 fans waiting outside the venue to see the band and she ignored us all day, as did Jeremy and Josh (other members of the band). The drummer Zac was lovely though!

You can't always rely on these types of threads. There are always people who come out of the woodwork who went to school with people who are now famous, and they always say "they aren't as nice as everyone thinks, they are arrogant" etc cos they are jealous. Poor Keira Knightley and Sarah Michelle Gellar got bullied and called arrogant just because they starred in films and stuff

Gemma Arterton seems very nice, everyone who has ever met her has said how lovely she is. Except someone who lived near her who said she was a bitch. Funnily enough I'm guessing they just had a problem otherwise other people would agree and she wouldn't have such a good reputation

Or an ebayer she refused to sign for as I seen first hand was quite funny as the guy showed her his train ticket and was like "Ive come all this way for you to sign these" and she just went "aw look you've brought your train ticket to show me" rolled her eyes at us and was like "see you girls" haha

The loveliest celebrity I've ever met is Nerina Pallot.

(For those who don't know, she's a superb British singer-songwriter and has written for the new Kylie Minogue and Diana Vickers albums.)

Met her after one of her recent shows - incredibly friendly, chatty, down-to-earth and approachable. Not starry at all and pretty self-deprecating. Really appreciates the fans and it wasn't like a quick "hello, thanks for coming," she actually has proper conversations with her fans, and is really interested and talkative.

I found Matt Lucas nice but a bit shy. Caroline Flack is just horrid. Won't mix with anyone unless they are a celeb or Royalty.

I have met a couple of people, although there not that amazing...

Nice
Sarah Lark (IDA) not the most famous person but for sure the nicest. Stood and chatted for acges and then gave ma and my friend autographs and pictures Although i find all the people i have met that were/are in musicals (Kerry Ellis, Connie Fisher, Jodie Prenjer, Dianne Pilkington, Charlotte Wakefield) are lovely, don't know if thats just a coincidence.

Natasha Richardson - she was a complete idol of mine ever since i saw her in The Parent Trap when i was little and I was super exited when she was on set the same day as me. She was so sweet, me and my friend were sitting in the shade trying to catch cashew nuts in our mouths to pass the time and she came over and sat in the shade next to us and was telling how we could catch them more easily and then chatted for a while. Absolutely charming!

Cate Blanchett She seemed nice enough not starry at all.

Emma Thompson Nice lady, she was all nanny mcpheed up so she it was rather odd talking to her but she was nice

My mum and dad met Keira Knightly and James Macavoy at the Atonement premier and said they were very nice and chatty, no starry I feel so sorry for Keira, she isn't as bad as everyone assumes!

Can't think of anyone else at the moment....and probs spelt half the names wrong..sorry about that !

REALLY?!!? I love paramore. I've seen tons of stuff on youtube and they always (hayley in particular) seem happy to talk to fans/sign stuff before and after shows. Gutted to hear this.

Met Jonathan Ansell a few weeks ago after a Whistle Down the Wind performance. He seemed nice and was happy to sign autographs.

Also met Paul Daniels when I was a little kid. We watched one of his shows and we were sitting in the front row so he called me on stage to help him with a trick. Only then he realised I was a bit too young so he called my sister up to do the trick instead

I'll second that (and, funnily enough, around the same time! )

Can remember Rick 'hinting' that he didn't have one of the badges I had on my jacket.

Had the misfortune to bump into her recently in Westfield, we were about to get in the lift on the Wood Lane entrance when this guy put his hand up and said 'sorry lift full' , ignoring his presence we got on only to be subjected to HER complaining about having ordinarily people in her presence.

Quick as a flash my OH turned around and mouthed ' you shit and talk out of your arse so you are just as ordinary as us', her face was a picture.

She even tried to get the security to remove us from Westfield, the bloke she was with that day was NOT Lampard but ..........
To be fair you ignored a request not to get into a lift that you knew was already overcrowded, i'm sure there are Heath and Safety implications involved so i'm not surprised she was a bit miffed.

yeah I was a huge fan then to, have bought the new album but dont think I'd go and see them live again. Maybe they were having an off day... she walked past about 5 times before telling me I was the only one she'd get a picture with because I had a Paramore necklace and then she went back in. Zac was lovely though took his time with everyone and signed everything for people!

Oh yes the badges. I had so many of those and all of the,singles' a few times because of the different covers.
Kids don't know what they are missing now...

To be fair the elevator was not overcrowded, at the entrance before the doors opened there was five of us waiting to enter the lift, I, my OH, Bloke & Child and some lackey they had with them, we all stepped back when the doors opened to accommodate a young girl with stroller who was exiting the lift. At that point there was no one on the lift.

They proceeded to enter the lift at which point their lackey uttered words 'lift full' to us, she was lucky my OH did not slap her disgust towards us of her face. Elevators at Westfield can legally accommodate 15 i believe.

I did some of the XF tour & found it the opposite way round...Jedward were quite rude and only wanted to speak to their 'regular' fans who followed them round the country...even heard one of them say "Who are all these randoms who think they can ask for a picture?"! lol

Whereas Olly was extremely lovely and gracious everytime...have met him now several times and he's always been lovely above and beyond expectations! Even had a few shout outs on his FB and Twitter afterwards! x
