- Another celebrity encounter thread
I had to draw on Elanor Tomlinson’s face once! I was trying not to shake and stab her in the eyeball when drawing on her eyelids!
Also met Gillian Anderson, she was tired and hungover
Gary Oldman – a little bit scary! I had to try and explain the concept of facial animation to him, all the while thinking “I’m talking to Gary Flippin Oldman!!”
John Rhys Davies – he was amazing! top stories about Richard Burton, Liz Taylor etc
Mark Hamill – Super cool, cracking Star Wars storiesPosted 5 months agoplumberMember
I mention this one every time the thread comes up.
I snogged Susanna Hoffs
Last year Susanna Reid sat beside me at some show in London. She asked me a few questions about who was going to be on. I didn’t know it was her to be honest but my Mrs said it was and she tweeted about it the next morning. She smelt like a freshly picked rose 🙂
Met loads of pop/rock people but Gabriele Kerner was my favouritePosted 5 months agotjagainMember
Robbie Coltrane in the village shop where my parents live. Had Man united player ( can’t remember his name) come into the unit I was working in and when he said ” I’m here to visit my mum” he seemed a bit put out that I didn’t know who that would be. I was around when Winston Churchill junior was thrown out of the hospital I worked in for trying to set up a photo op without permission and I had a chat with a premier league manager when I tried to organise for his granny to go to one of his team games.Posted 5 months agotransition1Member

Hung out with Whitfield Crane and Klaus Eichstad from Ugly Kid Joe at an Alice Cooper concert.
They came and stood next to me & a mate during Alice’s set – really chatty until someone else realised who they were and started trying to take selfies and get autographs.
Also hung out with Rob Halford from Judas Priest – my mate was a mobile DJ and I helped him do a party for Rob’s brothers Birthday. Really quiet guy.Posted 5 months agofinephillyMember

Spent a night drinking with Branson. Was starting a grad job in London and a load of us where put up in a posh hotel in London for a few nights. Branson was in bar with cronies and wondered who we were. When explained about grad recruitment he invited us over, wanted to understand if Virgin should be doing it. He stood drinks all night and got more and more raucous. Ended with him explaining he was a hypnotist, pulling up one of the girls by her wrists, telling us all to stand in a circle and going “wooooooo” whilst rolling his eyes. We all thought wtf, then says what’s the time. We look at our watches expecting minutes to have passed in seconds. Not the case BUT girl he’d originally pulled up screams because her watch has gone. At which point he shows it on his wrist. We were dumbfounded, initially genuinely believed we’d been hypnotized.
He left shortly after and his behaviour with same girl makes me wonder how he’s never been #metoo-ed as he tried to grab her by the p###y and then get her to join him in his limo.
After he’d gone and we’d worked out the trick, one of his yesmen said he’d used the same trick when buying a fleet of planes off Boeing for Virgin Atlantic. Negotiations locked with a £5m gap between what each side is prepared to go to. So Branson is one on one with Boeing CEO and says I’ll bet you the £5m I can hypnotize you..
Great fun to spend time with, but questionable attitude to sexual ethics..Posted 5 months ago
