Default Most Famous Person Youíve ever met ?

Curious to see the replies here.....Iím sure we will get some good answers but I do a lot of work for movie studios here in Atl and have met some pretty big celebs. Some Iíve seen up close but never spoken too... others Iíve interacted with and shook hands etc.
I have met a ton but the big 3 I can think of that Iíve met in person

Kurt Russel
Vin Diesel
Ludacris

A few. Lived in a building in NYC with Morgan Freeman and Natalie Portman. Had a few conversations with Morgan in the bar, nice guy. Natalie and I were on the same elevator most mornings. Quiet and quirky. John Travolta is very nice as well, a lot bigger than I expected. Pretty much they are all friendly as long as you treat them like a normal person and keep things to small talk as if they were any other stranger.

Funny story I was in Cabo with a buddy. We got in late from fishing and were HAMMERED. We were made it to the hotel restaurant just in time and they sat us. Only one other table had anyone at it and they were about a table away. We go about our dinner and the next day there is an expensive bottle of tequila in our room and a note from the manager thanking us for leaving Jennifer Aniston alone to enjoy her meal. The bottle was from her as a thank you.

Weird to think of him as famous, and most younger people will have no idea who he is, but Ed Marinaro is a good family friend.

Celebrities never have to worry about me bothering them. Couldn’t give a shit who they are or what they do. Not star struck or an autograph hound.

Some good name have been thrown out.
We met Vin Diesel in Haiti working the earthquake in 2010. Cool dude.
Some hollywood celebs have shown up to disasters and done volunteer work. Cool stuff. Trade Center. Katrina, etc.
Worked on Vanilla Ice's house on Star Island many years ago. Another cool cat.

Buzz Aldrin, he was in First Class on a B-767 I was flying. Had to go back, shake his hand and say hello of course.
Probably a few other celebs, but nobody important.
