    Lily Cole (who is a famous model, apparently) and Hermoine "Emma Watson" Granger are around here somewhere, but I have yet to see either of them.

    Ate at a table next to Jimmy Falon at Keens a couple years ago.

    When I was working at a department store I met Diana Krall, who was buying baby things for her newborn twins. She was really friendly and chatty until I saw her credit card and went, "Diana... omg, you're Diana K-" She immediately put her hand to her face and looked at the floor. I think she was afraid that I'd start screaming, "OH IT'S DIANA KRALL!!!" and draw everyone's attention to her or whatever. I didn't say anything else about it and I guess she appreciated that because she always looked for me whenever she came back to the store.

    I hung out for a bit with a couple of the Detroit Red Wings in a hotel hot tub... Samuelsson, and some other Swedish player. I didn't recognize them, I just noticed they had really ripped bodies. [​IMG] But my boyfriend knew who they were. He's Norwegian so he started chatting with them about hockey (Swedish and Norwegian are mutually intelligible) while I ogled their six-packs. That was fun!

    past run ins:

    Elisha Cuthbert at Barneys. while my wife was checking out, Elisha was cashing out right next to her. didnt say anything other than stare like a psycho

    Bruce Springsteen at Barneys, were looking at the same rack (of clothes)

    Jessica Biel at Anthropology....I was sitting on a couch and she was browsing the rack right in front of me so I browsed her rack

    Christopher Walken in an elevator...by the time i realized who it was (face mostly covered in a big hat) he was 5 steps away and I didnt want to make a jackass out of myself, tho I should have for Walken

    Zach de la Rocha (singer of Rage Against the Machine, I dunno if he qualifies as a celebrity)....knew that fool when he was in h.s. and in hardcore bands.

    From the b list.

    I was once jostled by a fellow sauntering past (a very pickled) me in a Toronto pool hall. Turned out to be Lou Diamond Philips. My (even more pickled) friend offered "Let's swarm him!".

    Thom Browne at the gym yesterday. The guy is in pretty good shape

    Well I saw James Cromwell at my gym yesterday, and he's amazingly fit for an old dude, and tall. I bet he could kick Thom's ass.

    The WAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSUUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!! guys work out at the gym closest to my house.
    I never encounter them, having never set foot in a gym, but my associates frequently relate their latest interactions with them.

    Also, I was walking about of The National Chorale and noticed a tall lady in a Prada coat. Turned out it was Sigourney Weaver.

    Ed McMahon, Dan Rather, and Bill Moyers. In that order, all in one day last week in the lobby of my office building.

    Dunno if I posted this a dozen or so pages ago but I was eating at Charlier Palmer's Steak with co-workers and spotted Dan Rather having lunch with another dude. They had a camera team with them so I figured he was interviewing for his new show. This was about 18 months ago.
