I've met Crispin Freeman.
I've met others but he's the only one I have met outside of a convention.

Met Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki a couple years ago at a Supernatural con, got hugs and photo with them - met Richard Speight Jr at the same con and got his autograph.



I also met Mark Tremonti, the guitarist for Alter Bridge and Creed, and his solo band Tremonti last year in February - was able to chat them up for a bit and got a pick from Eric and signatures, gave Mark a copy of the drawing I took to get signed - without a doubt one of the greatest experiences I was fortunate enough to have. 。◕‿‿◕。

I met Seth MacFarlene at an Obama rally event, I touched him and took a picture.


I also met Neil deGrasse Tyson at a Bucksbaum lecture at Drake University. I wish I could have gotten down to talk to him, but they ran him out of there fast.


I also met Larry the Cable Guy at the state fair, I wasn't as excited for that lol.

Unfortunately, no. At the most, I've been to a Clay Walker and Joe Diffie concert. I'm jealous of my Aunt Janet. She met Bruce Willis a couple of months back, in New York City:


I had wanted to meet Michael Crichton and Steve Irwin since I was a kid. Unfortunately, both died within a few years of each other. Screw you, 2008 and 2006.

I dunno if I ever wrote in here before but here goes:

Matters what is counted as a celebrity, I've met Authors at book signing events(JK Rowling, Christopher Paolini, and a few others), I've met a few Artists though that was mostly on accident, I met Ralphie May, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeff Foxworthy as well as a couple of other comedians for meet and greets backstage or after a show, I have met Tim McGraw, Kenney Chesney, and Toby Keith* at pre events to concerts or in TK's case a special reason which I will get too, I also see local musicians all the time thanks to part time work at a bar that does shows for local artists.

I have not met any actors or actresses though.

Ok so onto Toby Keith and why he is a bit of a special case: My family won tickets to meet Toby Keith at his concert due to my sister being severely handicapped (we won them in like a raffle from the hospital) and part of the deal with these tickets was to before the event do a meet and greet with Toby before the concert. So for an 10 year old seeing his favorite country star at the time I was practically in heaven already. Well after talking to him, he apparently wanted to do something for us, so he let us go onto the stage with him as he told everyone our story, gave us VIP seating and access to the show, and after the concert even gave us a ride on his bus. All of which he got his stage crew or whatever to quickly get everything wheelchair accessible for my sister, which was just going miles ahead of what I think ANYONE, celebrity or not, would do for someone.

Needless to say I was one happy 10 year old at that time.

They're nowhere near celeb's but back when I lived in Colorado, me and my brother met Willy B and "Uncle Nasty" from the radio rock station 'KBPI'.

Willy B was a chill dude.

"Uncle Nasty" was a fat prick.
