Thanks.

since you asked, the film club at uni that i helped run organised a film fest and invited her down to talk as she used to go to my uni, so there was a Q & A with her. People asked her boring questions about acting etc, then i asked her what going to the Oscars was like, and all she could remember was feeling millions of eyes from across the globe on her whilst being asked utterly inane questions such as "who did your hair?"

Re: Celebrities you've seen in the flesh - where and when

i vaguely know who she is.

i met the fat one from bowling for soup once. my boyfriend at the time worked for their record label or something, and he had a backstage pass for reading, the fat one gave him one to give to me, i had to go back and thank him.

at the same time i met a couple of blink 182, a couple of placebo, and inme (oh yeah. don't get too jealous)

when i worked at out of this world in leeds, cain dingle from emmerdale came in, and the oldest of the rich brothers (the kings?) was a regular.

i've seen lee from hollyoaks (in emmerdale too?) out and about a few times.

erm. hooray?

when i went to hollywood i met j mascis, brody from the distillers and isaac brock from modest mouse at atp, and i met david cross from arrested development/eternal sunshine of the spotless mind at a les savy fav gig.  i also stood next to donna from that 70s show when i was queuing for cinema tickets.

i met steve lamacq in a diner in new york.

i've spoken to richard madeley, tony benn, vanessa feltz, john mccririck, clement freud, winston churchill's grandson winston churchill, eamonn holmes, lorraine kelly and david mellor on the phone at work.

i had a conversation with the singer from the strokes about how great iggy pop is.

david hasselhoff stoically ignored me on the way to his limo from a closed-door signing at asda headquarters.

steve albini once asked me to get out of his way.

Near collided with Gok Wan (from that channel 4 show) in the street in Brighton last weekend. V. Orange.

I once picked up (as in, helping to stand) Ken Russell after he'd slipped on a step. He was very sweaty.

I bumped, bottom-to-bottom, into Dawn French at the Royal Opera House. We both apologied.

I used to be friends with this fellow:

I've had dinner with Craig David.

Has anyone ever been mistaken for a celeb? I had some pissed loon in NYC follow me for several blocks due to his belief that I was, in fact, Jason Alexander. At this point I didn't know the name. Save to say that if I had, I'd have probably chinned said wretch.
