    Jean Claude Van Damme, when he wasn't really famous anymore.

    No one because my life is boring

      I'm in the same boat! I don't recall meeting anyone famous.

        Well, everytime we see you comment, we see someome famous in Snapzu.

        So you got that going for you, which is nice.

          Agreed no body. However, the drunken ninja did comment on one of my snaps once! Internet sensation! Waddup!

    During MineCon 2011 I was able to meet Notch/Markus Persson. Didn't get to talk to the guy that much though but I was able to take a picture with him and sign some stuff.

    During that same event I met Jeb/Jens Berngesten (he's in charge of Minecraft now) and he was a really cool guy. We talked for a bit and then we took a picture, and he also signed some of the merchandise I bought at the event.

    When I was young we were walking in Universal Studios and I met John Travolta, this way right after he got finished making Face/Off. He was really nice, had a small entourage with him but posed and he wasn't rude or anything.

    I met Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) at DragonCon in 2012. I pretended not to be star struck but ended up grinning like an idiot/creeper the whole time. He was very nice and seemed down to earth both then and in his panel.

    Richard Hammond. I went on his show 'Richard Hammond's Blast Lab' on CBBC when I was a kid.

    I met Penn & Teller after their show in Vegas. Teller will talk to you there and he's a selfie taking machine. Penn has lost a lot of weight over the years. I hope it's through healthy methods and not something like coke, stress or cancer. Borth of them, even after having performed an entire show smelled professional.

    The Dalai Lama

    • Nelson

      Did you actually talk to him or just seen him?

        Just a quick meet and greet. "Hi, hello", and then he did the tibetan buddhist blessing - his palms against the back of my hands and a bow. He made quite an impression on me

    LTJ Bukem, Dieselboy, Vegas from BCUK, and a bunch of other DJ's

    Cosmic Gate (really nice guys), Yoji Biomehanika (very interesting person).

    A top Japanese sumo wrestler called Hakuhou. Took a few photos beside him and considered my insignificance in a universe able to accomodate such a large man.

    Probably DurĂ£o Barroso, the former president of the European Comission.

    Billy West. possibly my most fave person in the world.

    Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune. I was a valet attendant at the time and was the one who had to park her Prius at a particular event, something that didn't go terribly well because she accidentally took her Prius's Smart Key with her when she got out of the still-running car, and I didn't realize it wasn't in the car until after I had already parked it (the Prius can remain running without the key). After second-guessing myself nearly to death about not being able to find the key, I did what I could to secure the car, explained what happened to my boss, and waited for Vanna to come out, hoping to GOD she had the key with her. When she came out, I meekly approached and explained the situation to her, to which she responded by going something along the lines of "oh crap!" before handing me the key and apologizing. We laughed about it, I ran and got her car, she thanked and tipped me, and that was that. Nice lady. :]

    I meet Neil Armstrong many times. He grew up in the same town my grandfather lived. His family house butted up to my grandfathers so when he would come visit his home town we would always bump into him. Really nice guy. I've meet John Glenn a few times when I was still in college, awesome old dude.

    Sort of met the President. Only really got to directly meet Michelle Obama, who gave me a hug and was so ripped I thought she'd break me.

    I met Michael Ironside (voice of Sam Fisher) and David Hayter (voice of Solid Snake) on the very same day, though unfortunately not at the same time.

    That was a good day.

    Probably Kurt Russell. Really nice guy. I also met Farrah Fawcett when she was at the height of her fame, but a lot of people here probably don't know who she was.

    • Boudicca

      I know who she was, all the boys loved her- you must have got a lot of kudos for that

    I shook hands with Greg Proops and took a few pictures with four of the five members of Minus the Bear, David Knudson, Alex Rose, Jake Snyder, and Cory Murchy. I talked to the musicians TOBACCO and Seven Fields of Aphelion from Black Moth Super Rainbow. David Turncrantz and Colin DeKuiper from Russian Circles. All the folks from Slow Bird. A couple of the guys from Chin Up, Chin Up. The performers Oscillator Bug and half of The Hood Internet.

    I also got to talk with Ian Williams, John Stanier, and Dave Konopka from Battles. I think I also got something signed by all of the members of Mindless Self Indulgence when I was still into them. Oh, and the bassist from Portugal. The Man, Zach Carothers.

    I gave most of these people garbage demo CDs of my music they probably never listened to.

    Mark Pelligrino, Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Courtney Taylor-Taylor of the Dandy Warhols, Ehren McGhehey and Dave England of Jackass, Joe Rogan.

    Can't decide which is most famous.

    I've been waiting tables in Washington DC for about 7-8 years now and I've waited on a few famous people. Some examples:

    Anton Scalia, Elana Kagan, Sonia Sotomayer, John Boehner (I"m a die hard liberal, but he was at least reasonable), Benicio del Toro, Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk, Bill Nye (really, really nice guy)

    Does meeting famous people in my dreams count too?

    While I was a reporter for local public radio I had the opportunity to meet a few -- probably Mikhail Baryshnikov was the biggest, I interviewed him when he was in Honolulu with his dance company. On the comics front Will Eisner was very cool; I interviewed Stan Lee and Bob Kane too, but both by phone.

    I met Nicholas Hoult in 2008 while I was at uni in Reading. He was out at a bar and me and a friend bumped into him. This was just after the second season of Skins had come out and we were both big fans. He was a cool guy and was really genuine and happy to chat to us, made it seem like no bother at all. I really like him as an actor and I'm pleased to see him working his way up in Hollywood. Loved him as Nux in the latest Mad Max film.
