I worked at a hotel in Seattle that was having a convention. Bill Nye was there for it and had biked in. He checked his bike helmet with me and later tipped me a $1 when I brought it out to him.

Technically this was a stupid answer by him. Never expect that people know you, regardless of how well-known you might be...

I met Jasper Carrot when I was nine at a restaurant in Menorca. He was at the table next to us having dinner with his daughter. I plucked up the courage to ask for his autograph and he told to go away!!!

I worked in a small florists years back and was close to closing time when Anita Dobson came in for a bouquet of flowers. While she was waiting for me to make it up she made a fuss of my mother-in-laws little dog who was with me. She wanted to take him home. She was a very sweet person.

I work at a Marina in West Vancouver, BC. We are one of the hottest film sites for just about anything to do with the water &/or Marine. We are a permanent location for Siren, we were the pilot location for the upcoming Nancy Drew tv Series. I talked to Freddie Prinze Jr. (Carson Drew) and Kennedy McMann (Nancy Drew). She is really nice, he is really down to earth, and very laid back. ............................................................................................................................ I met Kevin Bacon and wife Kyra Sedgwick and their daughter when they filmed a movie here........................................................................................................................................... over the last 11 years, we've had hundreds of movies, commercials and TV shows filmed here.. I have met a bunch of famous people

I was at a wedding at the yacht club in Newport. A friend and I bumbed into a guy who looked like Billy Joel, except really really scruffy. She said, "It's Billy Joel!" I said, "No it's not. Too scruffy." The scruffy looking guy looked really irritated. "Look, see? I bet he get's that a lot," I said. Later, I found out Billy Joel made an appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival that day. oops.

It was in the early 90's that I was at the Topsfield Fair, in Massachusetts, and I got plowed into by a man who was walking so fast I almost fell over. He grabbed me by my shoulders and kept apologizing and asking if I was alright. Isaid I was fine and walked away with my friend. Once we were a few feet away, my friend yells, OMG. that was great! I said , "What was great about some idiot not paying attention to where he was going and almost knocking me over?" She said: "Mel, that was Johnny Cash!" How I didn't recognize him, I'll never understand!

This is going to date me.... but when I was in high school I worked at Canterbury Race Track in Shakopee the year it opened. I worked in the exclusive Turf Club and got to clear the table of Harvey Korman and Tim Conway. Got their autographs and everything! Of course given it was years ago, there were no cell phones and being a teenager I lost their autographs! They were very gracious to everyone.
