I cut some steel at work years ago and went into the office to give it to the customer to find out it was Gary McDonald from Mother and Son, I said 'Gidday Norman' as he was also Norman Gunston, that got a smile!!

yeah meeting someone doesn't mean you know them.

 

my best mate rides (bmx) for Colony (and other sponsors), X games finalist etc

 

he gets some funny shit sent to him on FB, fanmail i guess you would call it haha.

 

he's been my best mate since before he was "famous" in the bmx world, so to me he's still just the same kid.

as playing some basketball around australia and in america i have come across heaps of famous people

have met everyone from the miami heat and cleveland cavaliers as they came out to give us a talk when a basketball team of teens sent from melbourne to the u.s to play in the 2008 connolly games, exchange to ohio

 

also occasionally when going out to a club i chill with some nbl players mostly at alumbra such as corey homicide williams and mark worthington, mostly melbourne tigers nbl team

when i used to work at hsv production last month after the team won bathurst we had a celebration when they came back to the warehouse and met heaps of the v8 supercars at the v8 supercars

 

and a friend of mine i went to school with arryn siposs now plays for st kilda, think it was only like 1 game though

 

oh and if people met all the and1 players on their tours to melbourne... think they are long dead now

I have met my fair share of aussie sporting celebs, radio hosts and tv hosts as a kid due to my old man being a gun ho real estate agent back in the day. Pretty much all the Broncos players from around 94' to 98' and many tv news presenters.

 

There was a show on up here when i was a kid called 'Agro's cartoon connection' was on ch 7 years back. I was on the show talking to the presenter Anne marie about some picture I had drawn and I got heap of toys just for being there (MATCHBOX CARS!! etc). I also went around for dinner at her place and she gave me one of the old brick gameboys!

 

My stepdad was involved with the 2000 Olympics and because of that I got to meet many atheletes that were competing, kerin perkins (used to live near me anyway), thorpey, cathy freeman, michael klim etc (I cant remember any of the foreign ones names). I also saw meg ryan when I was at the olympics.

 

I got into an elevator at fox studios with keanu reeves around the same time as the olympics I have an autograph somewhere.

 

One of my mates worked with girl who got invited to be paris hiltons entourage while she stayed in australia around the time of that scooby doo movie. I tried my hardest to get in on that shit to no avail :( This lucky bitch had EVERYTHING paid for!! She went to all these local celebs parties and all the drugs and alcohol she could, eat, drink, snort.

 

Also another mate used to go to school with molly meldrums son and another one of my mates family were close to the band regurgitator - his little baby bro was in one of their film clips i believe.

 

Lol brisbaners may know this but on the community tv channel we have up here (BRIS 31) there was a show called Tamara Tonight and it was about this fat tranny that interviewed people. Anyway my mate used to live near this bloke! haha it was so funny seeing this fat man in a business suit walking in his front gate knowing he was this queer off TV.

 

Thats about all I can think of.

Never really met anybody famous. Just know a few local people. I.e. photographers at nightclubs, some of the DJ's as well. So it's good when you go and chat to them etc then hot bitches think I'm like "connected" so they hang around you lol..... :(

At my current job ive met most/all of the V8 SuperCar/Top Fuel team drivers and had a bit of a chat.

 

From my old job i was going to alot of companys so i occasionaly got to drop in when famous people were around, i could say my highest in the Australian scene of actually knowing somebody would be Glenn Ridge, he owns Production company for Car Related things, at 1 stage i was doing work there for about 3days straight and he took me out to coffee(which was about 30mins away) in a new VE GTS he was testing.. Many rules were broken that day lol..

 

Ridge_Glenn.jpg

 

Other than that ive done the usual meet and greet with alot of TV Show actors from Channel 10, i was onset at Ocean Girl for some episodes so i got to see a stack of celebs, I also was doing work at Channel 9/10 so i saw in the hallways celebs going to Rove and that kind of thing..

 

Outside of work i cant say i dont think i know anybody famous.. but then again when you know somebody you begin to forget about there famous side..
