I met the wrestler CM Punk at a comic convention. It wasn't until I told my wrestling-fan cousin after did I realize he was apparently a famous person.

Lucky man.

The only person I met that is famous is Tom Meighan, lead singer for Kasabian :D.

Edit: Also Simon Rix from Kaiser Chiefs but I was like 7-8 and didn't know who he is even though my family knew him D:

Several awesome animators at last KLIK! Animation festival in Amsterdam.

And I shaked hands, had a talk with, and got a signed shirt from Willem Rebergen (Headhunterz), the no.11 DJ in the world. Also a Dutch voice actor. :P

I haven't really met any celebrities in person before. I've never really been one for "celebrity worship", so I don't consider it that much of a loss. There's only a few notable people I would desire to meet. Most of them are scientists and philosophers anyway, rather than conventional entertainers. I'd probably get a lot more out of conversing with them.

I have met Stephen fry, shook his hand and talked to him a little bit.

Lucky man.
However Stephen Fry is the odd exception! He's an entertainer I'd very much love to meet in person, too. He's probably one of the most wittiest and funniest people to ever grace British television.

The only celebrities I've ever met would be in the NHL. I've talked to quite a few of them. They include J.S. Giguere, Jonas Hiller, Joey Dipenta, Jody Shelley (fighter, but a great guy!), Mike Green, Jose Theodore, Alex Ovechkin (he's an asshole tbh), Brad Marchand (also an asshole, I hate him more than Ovi), and also a few of the parents from the Columbus Blue Jackets (long story haha).

More recently though, I met Corey Schneider last summer. He was training in the same facility I was last summer so he talked to us. He's also a really nice guy. I'm not sure how big this elite program I've been invited for this summer to is exactly, but I could potentially be training WITH HIM this summer. It's the same camp so you never know. I'm sure I'll get to talk to him again this coming July though.

I met Brian Cox, quite a famous UK scientist at my work. He was a really nice guy XD talked to him about what I want to do in the future.

I also sat across from David Beckham on a plane, when I got upgraded to business class (the one time my Dad's air miles came in use XD) he borrowed my pen!

Ohh and i almost forgot.. I have also met many ice hockey players mostly famous swedish players like peter forsberg and stefan liv before his death (R.I.P). And also i am relatives with David ''Daveart'' Gunnarsson who's mostly famous for airbrushing ice hockey goalie masks. He's airbrushing about half of the league in NHL :fox-:):.

NO WAY you're relatives with David?!? Can you get him to paint mine?? Hahaha he painted Hank's mask didn't he? Great artist. Yeah the guy who painted my last mask also painted J.S. Gigueres and a few others in the show. Sadly, he passed away a few summers ago. He did a great job as well.

It's also awesome you've met Forsberg and Liv. I have not met them before. Wish I have

In 2002, I met Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick on the streets of downtown Manhattan.  I was hanging out with some friends before going home, and they came by, somewhat drunk, and needed directions to a bar they were having trouble finding.

I was within 10 feet of President Obama in 2008, during a campaign rally, but I didn't quite get to shake his hand or anything, so it doesn't quite count:  http://www.softpaw.eu/writing/trips/obama.htm

At Bronycon Summer 2012, on Friday night, I shared an elevator ride with Tara Strong, Lauren Faust, and John DeLancie :-)

That's pretty much it for mainstream celebrities.  As for high-profile furries, if they count, I've met and spent time with far more than I can list here.  It kinda comes with the territory of being a furry for so long :-P

I met Michael Angelo Batio:



And Florent Atem during the same clinic:



I also got MAB to sign my guitar cover X>



I also met and played with this guy 2 times and wants me to study under him at the university he teaches at X> : http://benedettoguitars.com/artists/daniel-sumner/

I also like to think I met Chuck Norris at Six Flags in Texas.  Or maybe it was just a guy who looked like him.  I'll never know.

In the DJ world, DJ Magic Mike and Huda Hudia.

Also talked with Jeff Gordon for a few minutes, and met F1/WRC champion Kimi Raikkonen.

Oh yeah, and Bob Dylan. We have the same hometown (Hibbing, MN) so ive ran into him there on more than one occasion.

- I met Dale Earnhardt Jr. at my local Dick's Sporting Goods.

- I actually know Bob McKillop personally because my dad who is really good friends with him.

- I met Stephen Curry through the connection with Bob Mckillop.

I also have some signed memorabilia from the Bruins when I used to live in Boston. I don't remember actually meeting the NHL players who signed them but my parents say I was there.
