Have you ever met a celebrity and said something stupid?

Post by TheTallest » Fri Dec 17, 2004 9:59 am

Am I the only one who can only come out with stupid coments when I meet celebritys?

I met Zoe Ball and all I could say was "your a lot taller than you look on TV"

I met Tim from Ash and said "your tim from ash!" his reply was "I know"

Me: "Hey, that's a really good plugsuit costume."
Her: "Yeah."
Me: "*notices her nametag* Woah, you're the real one!"
Tiffany Grant: "*laughs* yeah."
Me: "*wonders what his shoe tastes like*"

I was nervous when I met Dane Cook, and completely looked like a dork trying to do the SUFI. None of you probably have any idea what I'm talking about anyways.

I met a composer I really love last year. I actually talked to him over the phone first, so I said "hi". Then he said "hi", and god knows what possesed me to say "hi" again. Then he said "hi" again. Then loooong silence. :shifty:

I met Neil Kinnock once.

Not that that'll mean much to you unless you're a Brit of a certain age

Well, I didn't really meet them, but when I went to a showing of Miss Congeniality at a theater called the Paramount the starts of the movie were there. They had a Q&A after and so I went up and asked a couple questions. The last question I asked was if I could have a kiss from Julia and Sandra. What really makes me sad is that both of them said that they would...but they think someone else on stage wouldn't like it.

Well, yeah. I mean, the others in the audience would feel bad for staring as you went up there without having actually purchrased a ticket to the freak show.

Perhaps Deacon just doesn't engage in that pathetic exercise in human pustulance that is called Celebrity Worship.

Rick (blacknight) and I met the guy who played Sulu (sp?)(don't remember the actors name) from Star Trek at Dragon Con in the elevator. We were 7 or 8 floors up before either of us realised it was him. Rick said "Your Sulu!". Of course he said "I know." and then he told us about a public party he was throwing up on the 14th floor in his room. Too bad we didn't go cause of the party with the free booze.

Funny thing was he was wearing a shirt of himself in Star Trek when he was younger. Funniest thing ever.

Me?

I uh... I met a guy who owns a Philladelphia night club. Very Rich man. He gave me free food.

I had lunch next to Bronco McCart, for those of you that follow boxing.

I think that's about it, and I think that's about all I care for it to be.

Well-stated. :roll: :wink:

I've had celebrities say stupid things to me before.

Barry Manilow (yes, I'm a fan): "Hey! You're wearing my face on your shirt!" Uh, yeah. It's the only tour shirt you sold.

George Michael: Me - "Would you sign this for my sister?" George - "Do you have a pen?" At which point I kind of chuckled and pointed at his hand, where he had a pen from just signing a release. (From my publishing days a decade ago)

To be fair, when I met Helen Hunt I was struck speechless and could only stammer something to the effect of 'uh...uh... nice to meet...you. I....uh...loved you in ....uh' and promptly forgot the name of the movie I was thinking of. I used to have such a case of the hots for her. (also in my publishing days)

I suspect I'd have the same problem if I ever met Angie Harmon. :lol:

The most fun is to meet an obnoxiously arrogant celebrity and then act like you have no idea who they are. I used to do this a lot until complaints got back to my boss.

We have this celebrity in school (at least all 13yearolds had a crush on him 3 years ago), he played in a Xmas calendar on TV, he goes tooooooootally bananas if he hears anything from the series. I use to say his most used line, just coz it's sooooo lame I'll think I'm cool 8)
