Posted:No, he wasn't that short.. just under 6ft or something I'm guessing.

He's not that ugly, looked remarkably the same as he did in Road to Perdition (sp?) with the facial hair and everything, just longer hair..

I didn't manage to get an autograph, I really wanted a photo but he left the theatre REALLY quickly. It was at the New Embassadors Theatre = seeing Journey's End. Amazing play... haven't stopped talking about it, but my boyfriend doesn't care.. crazy fool.
It was really weird hearing an American speak there too... heh heh.. I guess he was in the UK because he's filming The Da Vinci Code atm...

(.....ok so when I was introduced I didn't recognise the name and just said "all-right mate" - but it still counts I tell you!!)

What do you guys do to meet so many famous people? Not my job thats for sure!

Posted:I say just treat them like normal people.

I've just done the 4th gig for well known personality in New Zealand in 3 years, and I asked what it was that kept him booking me, apart from my fantastic skills.:)

He said it was that I've never treated him differently to how his mates do, and that he is very happy with my entertainment skills.

Famous people are still just people after all.

Its also interesting, when meeting or dealing with famous people, the ones who expect special treatment or feel they have to ask me "don't you know who i am?" are very few and far between. But it pays to avoid those people later, as they are harder to work with than the down-to-earth celebrities...

In my opinion.

Posted:konsti, the amount of time ive heard you talk about the dali lama and paul mccartney! lol!!

ive sat behind xavier rudd on a plane to brisbane without realising it was him until i got off!

and no-one will care about the next person:

ive shared a house with, made dinner for, had him make dinner for me, been in his pants (i borrowed them cos i was cold ubblol), had my first sip of guinness from his glass, and had a beer bought for me by the stroke of the american eight who won gold at athens and various world cups and championships.
and i didnt even realise it was him until the first half of the above had been done!


i would have changed ***** to phallus, and claire to petey Petey

Posted:we once walked through crown casino in melbourne (australia) and passed a guy who we thought looked remarkably like elton john. after many loud, rude and drunken remarks about how sad someone must be to try so hard to look like elton, we went home. the next morning, i got up, and upon discussion of the previous nights events with others read the paper, and discovered that we had actually seen the real elton john, who was performing at crown. whoops!
