Jason Donovan was exceptionally rude when I met him at a radio station last year. I was there as part of my Uni course and he came in for an interview- not only did his press agent forward a ridiculously long list to our production team regarding questions they weren't allowed to ask, he also rang ahead to cancel a meet and greet with some of his "superfans" (most of whom had been waiting at the station for a very long time)

Came into the studio in giant sunglasses and a hat. Didn't smile or talk to anyone until he went on air when, surprise surprise, he became Mr Personality.
That's disappointing

I met Tom Cruise at the weekend and he was surprisingly unaffected and pleasant...

I haven't met him, but I see him around quite a lot. He's not looking great these days, tbh - you can tell he's a bit of a boozer.

I saw a picture in the paper and he looks fat and a bit raddled, I dont know whether he really is a bit of a loose cannon with his fists as his last wife suggested and am some how intrigued to know

He looks awful in person. When I first saw him I genuinely thought "god, that homeless bloke looks just like SB...." before realising "oh. It is SB". I used to have such a crush on him back in the day as well, but - yuk. He doesn't seem all that savoury. Walked past him once outside a pub, he was just effing and blinding away. Re: wife - 4th wife isn't it? "Volatile relationship"? Hmm.

So did I, when he was Sharpe , so I could hardly believe it when I saw the photo.
He really has gone down hill.

Don't suppose you can reveal any of the no no questions, can you?

Did any involve a previous relationship with a certain former co star?

A certain court case involving a now defunct magazine & his private life?

I've met quite a few celebrities and fortunately they have all been lovely:

Bruce Dickinson - did his Flight 666 simulator trip. Really down to earth and a complete gentleman.
America Ferrera - absolutely lovely, and very, very tiny.
John Barrowman - really lovely and took time to sign autographs and pose for photos.
Adam Garcia - really lovely.
Peter Egan and Robert Daws - met them after a play, were really fun.
Darius Campbell - a really nice person.
David Suchet - just like Poirot, an absolute gentleman.
Marshall Lancaster - very quiet, but lovely.
Dame Judi Dench - sooo patient with everyone, again so tiny in real life.
The whole cast of Mrs Brown - met them at BBC Scotland after a show recording. They are so brilliant and posed with everyone for photos, plenty of kisses and cuddles. They are so down to earth.
Nick Knowles - very down to earth, hates stuck up "stars".

As I say I have been very lucky, a friend however has met a few "horrors".

Michael Crawford - lovely when he was doing Barnum, since then has got a very up himself.
Lesley Joseph - nightmare.
Cliff Richard - awful.

Years ago I met John Cleese during a work function. He was really rude and totally up his own a*se. Only wanted to talk to the "top people" and actually turned his back on me when I said hello. I wasn't being star-struck, but my job was PA to the Director, so I was greeting him as I would anyone else. Really obnoxious man.

Met Frankie Goes to Hollywood at the height of their Fame - just after Relax and Two Tribes had been number one. They came to my school after our class invited them in to do an interview for our school magazine (we found out what hotel they were staying in and contacted them). They were great, answered all our questions and had photos taken with all of us. They were only in the area for a couple of days, but happily gave up a couple of hours for us. The only one who didn't come was Holly Johnson who was hungover apparently!

I also met Joey Barton as he was getting on the team coach after a match. Even though they'd lost, he got out and signed autographs when the fans (of the team who beat them!) called his name. He had a photo taken with my son, so I'm a fan now - despite the reputation!

That couldn't happen nowadays! There would be uproar from parents over the supposed filth of "Relax"!

Suppose we'd better add Bolam to the Cilla & Lulu list too?

Does anyone have a good word for Bolam?

My friend has met Larry Hagman - said he was incredibly friendly, just a lovely, lovely guy.

He also met Bill Clinton. Said he was very charismatic, very charming and very nice.

Not me. He was obviously fuming when he didn't win Strictly Come Dancing, I prefer Chris Evans on The One Show anyway.

Yes I'm aware of a child actor who worked closely with him and said he was a great bloke.

Not me. He's always come across as an up-himself little snit whenever I've had the misfortune to catch the One Show.

It begs the question of why you'd do it with someone you disliked so much really!
