Jeff Kennett And didn't actually meet him but DH and I ran into Larry Flynt in Las Vegas which was pretty cool. Took my DD to a lecture involving children's author Jacqueline Wilson and she was wonderful.So kind and patient with the kids, and treated them with so much respect. MIL was in a pub in the NW of Ireland once and a lovely man walked in with his wife and spent the evening chatting with her and buying her drinks.David Beckham is probably the most impressive one, we were staying at a hostel outside Nice and he was staying at Elton John's villa further up the mountain.Jon Stevens (Noiseworks) when he was doing promo for Jesus Christ Superstar, he was so hot back then.
Even though there is 20 yrs age difference, they both love exactly the same music and spent the whole flight chatting. Renee Fleming, Yo Yo Ma, Pinkas Zuckerman, Edo de Waart, Andew Marriner, Julian Lloyd Webber (a few times), Vadim Repin, Pavarotti, Domingo - all fun and crazy in their different ways.He backed into me (wasn't watching where he was going).He turned, looked at me then his head slightly wobbled side to side and one eyebrow goes up and gives a "how you doing" smile at the same time. Haven't met anyone famous for a long time now because I'm married, have kids and don't go out socialising any more Edited by Mama-of-two, 30 October 2008 - AM. I have met/dined with some pollies - Gough Whitlam, Kim Beazley, Cheryl Kernot, Peter Beattie, John Howard, Brendan Nelson and some others I think.Not what I expected from someone lauded at the ' King of Australian Television'.I didn't talk to him but I saw Joey Perrone (ex YYT) back in the 80's. The annoying thing was he was constantly tossing his head or flicking his hair off his face Ricky Grace back in the early 90s. He was chatting to friends and was stepping backwards.He was lovely and only too happy to pose for a photo with me. A few from A Country Practice - I used to live where they filmed.He was sitting with John Brogden which I thought was interesting. Marc Hunter from Dragon Some older Home and Away stars - Tina Thompson, Andrew Hill Lady Sonia Mc Mahon Have seen Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman whilst living in Sydney. We were at the Opera House in 1988 when she and Charles were on tour.Pat Rafter Most of the Essendon football team and Sheeds in 1994, I was only 15 and on work experience but Joe Misiti and Ricky Olarenshaw were pressuring me to go clubbing with them (I didn't).Several other AFL players of varying fame and sleaze level. Also met Scott West (also former WB) when our boys were in humidicribs next to each other in the SCN.Oh, I did meet Shirley Strachan (Skyhooks) a few times before he died. And the only one I wanted to really scratch their eyes out? I just remember how much makeup she had on andhow strange she was, even back when she was on Wheel of Fortune. Really cool guy Yes, I am being deliberately evasive because of that thing called Google Edited by Deathby Snu Snu, 30 October 2008 - PM.He had a unit in my parent's apartment complex. Having a phone conversation with Peter O' Toole whilst sitting in his daughter's kitchen (that man is hilarious and crazy! And meeting Nelson Mandela and having him hold my baby and shake hands with the rest of my children. I forgot to mention before that Don Burke came to our house to film our dogs as he was doing a segment on the breed my parents owned and bred.
