    I was waking past the Gucci store inside ceasers palace in Vegas and passed by Celine dion. As she walked past me I got star struck and she smiled at me and walked on by. She's really beautiful for her age...

    She was a thick Asian who only did one porn that I know of. She lived in San Diego and drove up to Vegas on the weekends to work at a strip club, don't remember the name.

    Also saw a Japanese porn star in an outlet mall in SoCal one time.

    Also saw a amateur Thai porn star walking the streets of Bangkok one time. Another one was dancing on an outdoor stage during Songkran.

    Damn, I watch too much porn. :oops:

    Met Rob Zombie at a mall once, he was in town for a show. My buddy and I were were walking down the main aisle, and Zombie had his back to us autographing something for a fan, (we didn't know who it was because he was dressed semi normal) and right as we walked past him he turned to go on his way and bumped into my buddy. My buddy just got off of work at UPS, and still had his uniform on, so Zombie said, "Oh I'm sorry UPS man, you guys should should come to the show tonight." Then he hurried on his way.

    He seemed like a pretty cool dude. I remember he looked older than you'd think, and either someone around us had bad body odor, or Rob Zombie is a stinky dude.

    I fist bumped Kenny Florian at a Kings of Leon concert.

    Actually seen a ton of fighters. Most people don't recognize them. Meet Rumble around UFC 100. Said what's up and wished him luck in his next fight. My Step Dad also managed James Toney for a bit when he made his first boxing comeback (at Cruiserweight) so met him a few times as well as Freddie Roach and Antonio Tarver (nicest dude ever).

    Probably coolest was when Tom Cruise and Penelope Cruz came into my restaurant back when I worked at Disneyland.

    Met Rafael Nadal (tennis player) in Miami, we were staying at the same hotel and I bumped into him in the lobby. Didn't really get into a conversation, just small talk. Dude was pretty douchey.

    MMA fighters, a bunch of them, too many to list or remember.

    Eminem, back in 99. Ditched my college classes for the day to stand n line for 3 hours, shake his hand and get his 1st major album signed. Wonder what it’s worth today.

    Also met the Frugal Gourmet Jeff Smith when I was a kid. He wound up being a pedo so I usually don’t mention that one.

    at the bar i used to run the lead singer from blues traveler came in one night, he was dating some chick that went to a nearby college, and was a NE patriots cheerleader. He was not as fat as he used to be, but still pretty fat. he had a whole crew of homos with him, was rude to everyone, staff and customers included and his posse were acting liek assholes too. they ran up a pretty massive tab in under 2 hours, played only thier own song son jukebox, denied the few people autographs or pictures who reconized him, and did not even tip. he was pretty lame to deal with, and overall kind of apiece of shit.

    I saw BJ Penn at a grocery store in Los Angeles a few months ago. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

    He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
    I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

    The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

    When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

    Sounds like he might have taken a few too many hits to the head. His fight against Yair Rodriguez was so obviously a mismatch, I couldn't believe the UFC did that to him. And then losing a decision to Denis Siver? Rock bottom...

    It met a few fighters at Bellator events most noteworthy Frankie Edgar, Ben Askren, Daniel Straus, Zach Makovsky, and the referee Keith Peterson but I've met a few more lesser known guys. Just recently I met Howard Scott Warshaw who is the Atari programmer who made Yars Revenge and E.T.

    I've never met anyone really famous but I've met people who were relevant to things I'm into.

    Not formally met him but I was at a jazz concert where Leo DiCaprio attended. Just before the band started, there was a lot of whispers around and people pointing at the front row. He was wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses inside so he was noticeable. I was 2 rows behind him and to be honest, I found it pretty annoying. The band started and people were still whispering his name and pointing at him. He noticed it, felt uncomfortable and didn't come back after the break.

    I have never made an effort to meet a celebrity or asked for an autograph, I only got pics with fighters. No big celebrity.

    Rafa comes across publicly as a nice young man, care to elaborate on how he was 'douchey'.

    I often need a little convincing when people make these descriptions, often I put it down to saying more about the other person i.e. you, in this instance, than the person being described.

    Maybe you mistook the slight language barrier and fact you're a complete stranger to him (whereas you 'know' him) for douchiness.

    Back in 2005, I bump into Lennox Lewis in NYC Chinatown. He was with his wife buying Chinese herbal medicine. The mailman and me recognized him and shook hands with him. Dude fist was twice the size of my head.

    Saw Magic Johnson at a 7-11 once.
    I said, "Hi, Earvin!"

    He kind of looked at the floor and responded in a voice so sad it sounded like his dog had just died, "Hi".

    Thrilling for us both
