How about George Clooney? was touring America, went to have breakfast at open air restaurant overlooking a big canyon then Mountains in the background, George was in the queue in front of me, handed me a menu and smiled, said "here you go", I have never been the same since, I swear that guy is so much better looking in real life

No, was in such a tizzy, all I could think about was I got to text my daughters and tell them and I couldn't get a signal, took me 3 days to recover from the shock.

I don't know if they count, but I've met loads of politicians: Kevin Rudd, Peter Beattie, Kim Beazley, Anna Bligh plus misc Ministers and MPs. This is all through being an ALP member and a member of anti-racist groups.
I've also met a few top trade union people.

One of my lecturers when I was at university is a broadcaster on ABC radio - Roly Sussex.

That's about it - never met anyone glamorous.

Oh, forgot to mention it: my son met Prince Harry: he had to accompany him to a rugby match in his (my son's)capacity as a young army reserve officer. He also met Quentin Bryce through the army.
