    When my husband and I were on our honeymoon in Maui a couple years ago, we had a zipline tour with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.

    We were on the Haleakala tour, and these 2 were the last of the group to arrive. We saw a big Cadillac race up to the base parking lot (they were verging on late) and we didn't recognize them until they actually ran up to the tour deck check-in spot. At first they avoided eye contact with everyone and kept to themselves, but when everybody in the zipline tour group at least pretended to not know who they were (we pretended since they seemed rude/aloof at first) then they lightened up and were more talkative to everyone in the group.

    I heard one girl ask Kristen where she lived and she said "Studio City, California." And then said it was "Near Hollywood."

    Our impression of them: Kristen thinks she's like super hot and seemed very full of herself. Dax just seemed like he was trying really hard to be "the funny guy" in the group.

    I thought it was kind of funny that not one person in our group acted as if they recognized them. Maybe no one else did but us, but I have a feeling there were at least a few others who knew, but pretended not to. lol.

    Okay, it was nearly dusk and I was driving just around the corner from my tiny house to where Peter Krause's big house is, when I saw two joggers on the road. I swerved out to give them plenty on space on the narrow road. The first runner was impressively tall and had beautiful hair caught up in an 80's sweatband. He gave a friendly wave as I passed (and oh, that smile - sigh!). I was distracted from gazing more by the fact that behind him ran what looked to be his Parenthood costar and I think his current partner Lauren Graham. She valiantly trying to keep up with him and despite the exertion, looked very pale and fine featured. Maybe it was their doppelgangers but I doubt it.

    Over the summer my sister, who was 24, was at Petit Bateau on newbury st in boston( major tourists on that street that time of year.)
    Salma Hayak was there with a whole entourage. my super shy sister apologized to Salma for bothering her and asked if she could get a quick photo with her.

    Salma wags her finger right in my sister's face and screamed "NO! Cant you see I am with my child?" the kid was outside with her nanny.

    My sister turned to he bodyguard on her way out and said "she's a bitch" and the guy said "yep".

    ^^ that's exactly what i imagined her to be. i hate it when celebs treat their fans like this.
    i understand you can't take pictures with everyone and sometimes you have other things to do, but there's a nice way of handling these situations.

    Chi-chi & Pepi - obscure local boy & girl singing duo who were on Soul Train once.
    Eric Lindros - former player for Philadelphia Flyers
    Corbin Bernsen - met him and his snotty wife at an airport in Vancouver BC when I was coming back from vacation. He's SHORT - but looks like an old flame of mine.

    Yeah, I hate it when they are like that. Its like they forget the reason they are famous. I would've said "Yeah, I noticed you with your "child", she's one ugly little bitch, too."

    This is a fun thread. Well mostly I've ran into musicians, and mostly once you get to know them they are spoiled little bitches. But I digress.
    I hate to generalize so here's what I got:

    Chester Bennington (Linkin Park): Only saw him momentarily backstage at a KROQ radio show. He popped his head in to say "hi," pretty low key and seemed nice enough.

    Eric Wilson & Bud Gaugh (Sublime): Depends on the mood. Mostly Bud is pretty good with fans and will happily sign things/take pics. Eric will always sign things/take pics, almost to the point where he can't say NO. Sometimes though Bud's in a mood and being a raging asshole to everyone, only to come back and apologize later. He's gotten better since he's been sober again. Poor Eric appears to mostly always be out of it or on something, like a zombie.

    Steven Tyler (Aerosmith): I was backstage at a giant radio show in Sept and was standing backstage when he walked off after his performance. As he walked by (very small stature, btw) he had several handlers assisting him, but as he walked past me he stopped, turned around to look at me and smiled. I took the opportunity to tell him he gave a great performance. Mr. Tyler was very nice and gracious though I did get the vibe that maybe he was giving me "the eye." Which was ok because my husband saw and I got to say later, "See! I'm still hot. All these beautiful/famous people here and Steven Tyler gave me the eye." Shallow and lame, I know. But I was almost five months preggo at the time and it made me feel pretty darn good about myself But also we saw him again later as he spoke to some people I was with and he was still very nice, but definitely aloof. Hard to tell if he's just a full-on loopy artist or a bit of a burnout. I think maybe a little of both.

    Tom Cruise: Did not meet the man but this was one of the weirdest celebrity experiences EVER. I love reading shit about this guy because I believe pretty much all of it.
    I was at a late night show taping last year, my husband's company had been asked to be there personally by Tommy boy, who was the guest star of the evening. My husband and his co. were put in the small backstage area, while Tom Cruise and his "handlers" were given run of the entire green room, which, was HUGE by the way- full bar, apps, TVs, pool tables, etc. My husband was told that he and his crew were welcome to go anywhere backstage but when we attempted to go into the green room (after the couch-jumper got there), his people would not let us into the room. The strange part was though, was that we never actually saw Tom but he literally had 25-30 scientologist handlers with him that filled the entire green room and followed him everywhere. TWENTY-FIVE to THIRTY people in his entourage, all Zenu's, of course. So fucking strange. It was also odd that the man had personally asked my husband and his partners to be there as part of the show but he never showed his face to say "hi" or "thanks" or anything. Just plain weird.

    Slash (G'n'R): HO-LY shista!! I was so fucking stoked to meet Slash, one of my idols. Met him in Chile earlier this year, he was in a hotel lobby with his bodyguard, whom also sometimes worked for my husband. Slash was very, very cool, everything you would expect him to be. He took pictures with us and was just generally laid-back, happy to be there with his family who travels with him most of the time. Now, as soon as I meet Paul McCartney I can die happy.

    Dr. Dre: Cool as fuck, smaller in size than I would have expected.

    Tito Ortiz/Jenna Jameson: At the same radio show I met Steven Tyler at, I saw tons of celebs but the one I thought was pretty crazy was Tito Ortiz with Jenna Jameson. I didn't meet them, just walked past them but she was really, really small, anorexic-like and he was definitely giving me the sex eye up and down, while holding her hand. I kind of thought to myself at the time, "Ha! This is for all the real women out there. Here I am, nearly five months pregnant, and this doofus walks by with the biggest porn star in the world, and he's checking me out?!" Anyway, again shallow and silly but when you're not feeling very sexy, hauling around a kicking, growing little boy in your stomach it's nice to still make a head turn once in a while

    There's lots more stories but that's all I have for now. I can always post more later if you like.

    Ask and you shall receive. It's hard to remember a lot of them and details but I'll give it a go.

    Nick from 311: Nice guy. Family man, sober, but a touch on the femme side.

    Lady Gaga: Backstage at a huge radio show she shows up ten minutes before she went on and had an entourage of about 12 people with her, whisking her past all of the other big celebs backstage, making a b-line for the stage. We snuck onto the side of the stage, under some landing-thingy to watch her before she went on and you could see her getting primped and pulled in every direction by all her people. It was a little odd as there was so many big names at the show and she was the only one who didn't mingle at all and wouldn't even make eye contact with anyone, just straight to the stage. But, I can see how she's working so much and probably isn't in the mood to stop and chat all the time.

    David Arquette: Met him in Chile at a large rock show. He was a fan of the people I was with and was very very meek and sweet. Almost like a lamb. Ha. This was back in April or May and he was battling the magazine covers over his breakup/breakdown but he clearly looked sober and engaged. Again probably one of the nicest celebs I've met.

    Gwen Stefani- I haven't personally met her but she is an old collaborator of my hubby's from back before anybody was famous. There was some legal mumbo-jumbo going on a few years back where she had contributed some material to my husband's company and they needed clearance from her to use it, and asked what she would like in return to use it ($). She sent back her signed consent form and said she didn't want a dime, just happy to help. I thought that was very unusual in this business and very, very cool of her.

    Gene Simmons (KISS): Back years ago when I was young and naive in the music biz I worked in NYC and Gene was stopping by for an interview. This must've been back in 2003 or so. Gene walks in with his one assistant and stops by my cubicle to chat. He is very, VERY tall and intimidating. He was clearly flirting but as they were filming I assumed it was part of his "act." He walks away but moments later my boss comes back and tells me ""Mr. Simmons refuses to do the interview until you give him you're number. Maybe just write down a fake one or something." I'm thinking to myself, "Good Lord." So, since there was a girl in the office I really couldn't stand named Barry I gave him her office number and extension. After the interview I was hiding in my boss' office hoping to avoid Mr. Simmons when his assistant comes back and hands me a piece of paper with a 1-888 number on it and tells me that is the number I am to call when I want to meet up with Gene. Clearly the man doesn't take a hint. Well curiosity gets the best of me and I call the number a day later to see if it's really his number- turns out it's some answering service he has set up for his random women/groupies to call and leave a message on and he'll "call you back"! I couldn't believe it. This same day I get call at work and it's that bitch Barry on the line, she says "Hey. Someone's calling asking for you, I'm transferring them." I didn't think anything of it til I clicked over and it was Gene Simmons! He says, "Hello Miss ____ from New York City. When will we meet up? Come to my show I will send the limo for you, etc. etc." Of course I politely declined.
    I have to say I am still blown away by this event only because he really was as bad about this type of thing as you would imagine him to be- it's not a myth. Crazy.

    Gene Simmons is "only" 6'1", so not exceptionally tall. He is known to wear high heeled (cowboy type) boots though, and is even rumored to wear lifts, even though he obviously doesn't need them. His son is 6'6", but that's probably because mom, Shannon Tweed, is around 5'10" (although she's claimed to be 6 ft. even in some interviews), but not shy to wear heels. I'm guessing macho Simmons needs to be taller than his lady.

    6'1"? Damn he was def wearing some heels then because I'm 5'8" and he was a good seven or eight inches taller then me, at least. I could picture him wearing lifts in order to tower over Shannon Tweed, he struck me as a narcissist big time. But also he just has a big "presence," he invades personal space and is large all around.
