I was seeing a Broadway show with my mom in 1992. At intermission she found me in the downstairs lobby and excitedly said, “I just saw Meryl Streep in the bathroom.” I said “Please tell me you didn’t say anything to her and you just left her alone.” She said, “I was very good, and didn’t say anything. Look, here she comes now.” And I said, “I’m glad you didn’t say anything to her…because that’s Glenn Close.”


guy fieri… i was drunk, barhopping, its like 10pm. and im walking along to the next bar…and im like, that guy looks like guy fieri. he’s walking towards me. so as we pass, i give him a 2nd look and im like, that guy actually really does look like guy fieri! so i pass him, and a second later i decide…there is no way that guy isnt guy fieri. so i turn around and shout “hey, youre guy fieri!” and he turns around and he’s like “yeah!” and i respond “thats cool!” then i turn back and continue to where i was going because i realized i didnt really have anything more to say to him other than that… he was by himself too. no entourage, no crowd. nothing. i guess he might have been scouting out food spots in the area or something.


Neil Armstrong. I was at the NASA Museum at Cape Canaveral (British tourist) but I also happened to be a teacher. They have an Education Centre, where teachers etc . . . can go and get loads of freebies for use in school. Whilst there, Neil Armstrong came in with his grandchildren and began greeting and chatting with people at random, including me. He was pleased to meet a British teacher of STEM and was a lovely bloke. Everyone (including me) was in awe. He made time for everyone, but mainly the kids who were there with their teachers. I got pics of kids just staring open mouthed in awe of him – after it was explained who he actually was!


My wife took my son to a local comic con 6 years ago while I had to work. Struck up a conversation about the weather with a nice older gentleman. Two days later she hears his voice on TV and says that guy sounds exactly like him. Proceeded to show her his picture and confirmed she chatted about the weather with Batman (Adam West)


Carrie Fisher. I was wearing a red Darth Vader shirt that said ‘choking hazard’ and she laughed when she saw it, and said ‘I love your shirt!” I was trying not to gush, and asked her if I could pet her dog Gary. We chatted for a few, mostly about Gary. She was super warm, and funny.. it felt almost like talking to a sister rather then a film star.
