I've been naked with Dan Sultan.
When I nannied in the UK, my kids went to preschool with Noel and Liam Gallagher's kids, Kate Winslet's kid, and a few other minor UK celebs. They lived in a very starry neighbourhood (Primrose Hill). Jude Law spoke to me in the playground once. Before I knew he slept with nannies, or I would have had a go
Well, I got to meet Kochie On the same day I met Nat and Samantha from sunrise, Anne Sanders and a bunch of people from Home and Away were there. I only really spoke to Emily Symons though, and she was lovely! DH bumped into "Alf" and narrowly restrained himself from calling him a flamin' galah! I spoke to a bunch of reporters, but can't remember them all. I remember I got interviewed by Dicko, and he was really nice.
Other than that day, I have a 2nd cousin who was a long standing weatherman on the abc- Mike Bailey- but I never met him I've met a fair few band members from Australian bands but some are kind of obscure. Along with everyone else that was a 90's teen, I've met Frenzal Rhomb!
The coolest celeb connection we have is that my DH entered a design to the t-shirt printing site where people vote for them to do a 24 hour run of selling a design a day. His design was based on a Stephen King series and he tweeted the link at Joe Hill, who is an author in his own right as well as Stephen King's son. He liked it so much he voted for it and got all these people to do the same AND he showed his dad! Both Joe and Stephen bought shirts and Stephen signed one for us too. It's now framed and on the wall only the other day DH got a message to his fb page where he shares his art and stuff from an American girl who wore it to a book signing- apparently Mr King told her it was his fave shirt (even though I didn't design it I still had a major fan girl swoon!)
In my late teens I went to the same gym as the St George dragons and more than once found myself in the spa with Anthony Mundine and co!
I once ran smack in to Michael Klim. I also managed to get into the 2000 Olympic swim team after party in Kings Cross and Scott Miller etc was there. On our honeymoon only 3 years ago, we passed Grant Hackett at the airport (me to DH- look! There's Ian Thorpe! )
Also years ago, I sold Alison Brahe porterhouse steak when working in a butcher shop- oh, the glamour!!
I don't know anyone famous. I'm not that exciting my parents used to be neighbours with an ex afl player (I don't really consider them 'famous' people though, and I hate football and know very little about the players but this guy was pretty well known, think he used to play for swans and had a nickname like plugger or something)
Hmm.. I have friends who have partied with ozzy (and most likely did a lot of drugs with him too :roll eyes: ) oh my parents met Chopper at an airport once, mum got his autograph on her plane ticket, he had nothing flat to write on so he said "turn around" and wrote it on mums back lol.
I imagine if you knew famous people, it wouldn't be that exciting anyway, at the end of the day they're just normal people like everyone else!
I have met Curtis Stone..we spoke for about 10 seconds but in that time I knew (I loved) him. Seriously, I could barely contain myself!
I have also had a couple of brief flings with NRL players before I met DH. in my defense, I had no idea who they were until other people told me, I find football mind numbing.
Oh I also went to school with Abbie Cornish, but she was a few years ahead of me so we weren't friends.
Flimsy, but I'm claiming them all!

my brother was the paddle pop lion at the Easter show when he was younger - does that count!!
I have met Kamahl and Kulcha (anyone remember them??), I met Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce at a Richmond Air Show..
There are so many I have briefly met.. Was pretty fun having a security guard Dad when I was at school..
Oh and met the guys from Masterchef. I love them. LOVE this pic of my little man with Matt Preston.. He was soooo nice!
