Brian Molko is lovely I've met him twice and he's been great both times. As is Stefan Olsdal, my cousin knows Stefan really well too and says he's a great bloke.
Your cousin is right Stefan is lovely - he always gives me a kiss and I always go pink and squeak thank you. Steve Forrest is hot and give massive hugs. Brian is much less snuggly but I think it's because I am completely in awe of him. I've met him 4 times now and still get all wobbly beforehand. I'm sure he thinks I'm a complete idiot. Nice to see another Placebo fan around.

A drama teacher and some of the drama students at my school were on a trip to New York a few years back. They went into a chapel in New York when who else but Piers Brosnan was in praying. For some bizarre reason, the teacher decided to ask him for an autograph (in the middle of a chapel ) and was told to kindly f**k off by Mr. Brosnan
He/she fully deserved it.

The only celebrities I've met are footballers and some are nice guys but an awful lot are arrogant and think they're better than everyone else, working class + is not a good combination in my experience.
I take it then that you're a fan of the repressive English class system where the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor?
Lovely.

I think tellnig her to f off was wrong however she/he should have left him alone while he was praying she/he could have waited till he was finnished.

I met Anthony Worral Thompson in my local Tescos. He wouldnt stop and talk to me or anyone else. He just rushed off when he was recognised True story

Kajagoogoo - all lovely guys, friends with Limahl on facebook, he even sent me a signed photo when he found out I was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year and when my mum died in September
[/QUOTE]

Firstly, I'm sorry to hear about your mum

I used to be a huge Kaja fan and my friend and I used to always be outside the BBC/Granada whenever they were in Manchester. We used to write to them and Steve and Nick always replied, often telling us when they would next be in Manchester and especially towards the end, after Limahl left, we'd be the only two waiting for them.
I even had Steve's (Askew) home address and continued writing to him after they split. He joined a band called Small Town Elephants and invited me to visit. I spent the weekend at his and his girlfriend Anna's house (she is now his wife) He really was lovely

Funny that.

LOL yes my drama teacher shouldn't have interrupted him but it was a tiny bit rude to tell him to f off

Jim Davidson :

Years ago i worked on the refurbishment of a club Jim was funding in Great Yarmouth.
It was a huge slap dash job and Davidson was always shouting at everyone as the club had to be ready on the Monday and it was Saturday. Our firm was doing some fire proofing and after we had finished i asked Davidson for an autograph for my Nan as she was a fan and he just laughed and walked off!

I went and had a piss in the toilet (which was not yet plumbed in) and then left

My mum had Val from Emmerdale in her shop the other day. My mum said she was absolutely lovely, she was with her mum and referred to herself with her normal name (rather than her stage name) and was extremely self deprecating.
That suprises me. I always got the impression she'd be *exactly* like Val in real life, lol.

.

What kind of imbecile approaches someone in a church for their autograph, even if they waited until he was finished praying. Perhaps it's just me but it's entirely clear that in a situation like that, the person is entitled to have their privacy respected. I would have told said drama teacher to eff off too.

The favourite Canadian actor I've met is Donald Sutherland. You wouldn't believe what a nice man he is.

I met him back in 1977 (I'm old-ish) and he overtook the room with his presence, he really did. Know how when you meet certain celebs, they appear to be much smaller in real life than you imagine them to be?

Donald Sutherland wasn't like that. He's very tall, and he glided into the room, wearing a black velvet jacket, and he had a full head of silvery blonde hair.

Know how when you meet certain celebs, they don't look anything like they do in their photos/films?

Donald Sutherland was like that; he looked infinitely better in person than he ever did on film and in photos. You wouldn't believe it. I wasn't the only female who swooned when he entered the room!

This was at the Toronto Film Festival. We had to buy tickets to get booze. I tore off two tickets (two drinks) and toddled off to the bar to obtain two vodka and tacky Tang mix before I had the nerve to approach Mr. Sutherland.

My friend bet me a quarter that he wouldn't dance with me to the music that was playing -- disco stuff. I bet her that he would...after the cheap vodka/Tang concoction went hurtling down me muzzle and connected with the grey matter.

I didn't know how to approach him as he looked so regal. I brushed his elbow gently with my hand so that he would look at me, which he did, in a questioning way.

"Would you like to dance?" I asked him.

"It would be my pleasure, thanks for asking, I was hoping that someone would, I'm so bored!" Mr. Sutherland replied, and he took me into his arms.

We danced to a song and talked all the way through. What a guy, he was so nice. He asked me, "And what films have you been in, I recognize your face!"

Me: "I'm not an actress, I work at Travelers Insurance Company as a secretary!"

Donald: "No, that I can't believe!|

Really nice man. A charming man. The best. And I got my quarter, too.
My friend worked on film sets in Canada with him and he's one of those that insits you mustn't make eye contact with!

Perhaps he thought you were a store detective!

No one should tell ANYONE to eff off while in a chapel/church. The height of tackiness.

And asking for an autograph in a place of worship isn't?

Thank you. Said drama teacher was a moron of the highest order. I am not surprised Mr Brosnan was so angry.

Yeah I've met Lorraine Chase a couple of times as she has a friend who lives near me and she has always been absolutely lovely which was in stark contrast to the psycholady from hell I saw on I'm a Celebrity

I also met Terry Pratchett at a book signing in 1993. A truly nice man.
