    Eckhart Tolle- walked right past him going into the building where his talk was being held, looked at each other in passing. (I guess that's sort of meeting)

    alec baldwin. at the deli, he was heading to car to leave just as we parked right next to his car to go inside. had to wait until my child was gotten out of the back seat of the car before i could get out of the way of his driver door. by that time he was accosted for his autograph by a fan. i mouthed "i'm sorry" he mouthed "it's ok" and shrugged and did the autograph. he seemed cool. he looked giant, he was after all standing on the curb most of the time.

    Redwings Coach Mike Babcock. He was also the coach of gold medal winning Canadian Olympic team.
    (edit: sorry for ginormous picture!)
  • The MOST famous? Hmm. The most famous is probably Alan Rickman. I saw him when he was in Seminar on Broadway and went to the stagedoor IMMEDIATELY and got right up on that barrier. His hand grazed mine as he took my Playbill to sign it. I told him he was amazing. He smiled at me. IT WAS FANTASTIC.

    I also once randomly ran into John Lithgow in Times Square. He was so nice and totally didn't mind stopping to take pictures with me and my friends.

    I've met a bunch of Broadway people, some of the drag queens from RuPaul's Drag Race, some musicians, but yeah, Alan Rickman is probably the most impressive.

    Edit: Oh! And Rosario Dawson! I forgot I met her! It was very fast. She did a speaking at a college and there was a very rushed meet and greet with her. I really only got to say hello and hug her (and take a group picture with a bunch of people I've never met, but thank goodness I was standing next to her so I could crop all the other people out), but it was lovely.

    Another edit: I met Tim Gunn once at a mall. He told me that I looked chic.

    My husband met Whitney Houston in a Footlocker in Oxford St (London, uk). It was really quiet and he was downstairs pretty much by himself looking at some trainners and she came down with her husband and kid and 2 minders and sat next to him singing along to the tune on the stereo in the store.

    I meet people in my line of work (I work at a private school) - actors, diplomats and even royalty! I guess the most famous person I know is the drummer from a very well known band :)

    Lord... I don't know who the most famous would be.

    Probably Vincent Price. I met him and his wife while they were shopping.

    The other two in contention were Bob Denver and David McCallum.

    I met Charlie Hunnam of Sons Of Anarchy at an event called Outlaw Jam. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. Yes, he is even more god like in person.
