I haven't and I don't know anyone that has.Must be weird to be on a night out and have constant attention from strangers.

I'm friends with the drummer, fro a very famous band. Nobody bothers him at all....

Yes I’m good friends with an actress who is currently back in Eastenders. And another who used to be in Hollyoaks but is currently a SAHM.

Yes, some say hello.
Saw a man pointing and mouthing to someone else ‘that’s .....’ when she wasn’t looking.
But she goes about her business like everybody else.

My best friend from school, who I was joined at the hip with till my twenties, her son is very famous, he's the lead singer in a huge band.

I find it odd as fuck if I'm honest . I look at him on the tv and think of the little lad throwing his crisps round my living room and struggle to reconcile the two. When we talk I really just ask how he is, in a how's the kids way, but don't allude to the fact that they've just announced a tour or has another hit or something. She will mention something, but in the same manner I do with my daughter, matter of fact way, and I'll say oh that's great yes I saw that, looks good, that sort of thing.

It really is all a bit weird. When I see screaming fans I think "you've got to be fucking kidding me".

Yes, an actor. Not my best friend, but someone I see regularly in a group of friends -- it's a bit strange, as I don't have a TV and the kind of films and TV he does are not the kind of thing I would ever watch if I did (so I've only ever seen him on stage, where he is very, very good) -- I think at some level, I didn't get that other people do watch this stuff, and that he is a huge deal.

One or two actors. Mostly quite ordinary people when it comes down to it, although for a while when one first experienced real success, he was quite the prat.

Yes, she's very lovely and down to earth, but i can't tell you who is it.

No, not really, but that's always how these threads go. It would be so much more interesting if people gave names and dirt. 😂

SlightAggrandising Thu 18-Apr-19 12:30:25

Yes and as pp said, it's really weird. I tend to ignore his fame and take the piss out of his name dropping.

Have regular contact with an A-lister and have also met her and her family privately a few years ago. Won't see who as could be outing..

I have an uncle in America who is the BIL of a very famous child actress (who doesn’t do a whole lot any more) they have a very famous circle of friends including famous photographers and ppl from Andy Warhol’s “group”.Their wedding was...interesting 😂

Yes it would be better if someone actually named someone, you wouldn't have to go into so much detail that it would break a confidence.

Whatsallthisaboutthen Thu 18-Apr-19 12:48:00

Yes, an English actor who’s a lead in an popular American drama. He’s also been in GoT etc. I hate watching him on screen, it’s really weird. I avoid it!

Pinkarsedfly Thu 18-Apr-19 12:50:40

Yes. Actor. More of an acquaintance. Seems a nice fella. It’s just a job 🤷🏼‍♀️

SauvingnonBlanketyBlanc Thu 18-Apr-19 12:52:06

Please tell! grin

These threads are a bit pointless without names TBH.

What’s so wrong with saying “I’m friends with Holly Willoughby” (for example).

No-one knows who you are anyway, and I don’t think the fact she has a friend is betraying her confidence at all.

Redbluesky Thu 18-Apr-19 12:53:49

My cousin is a well known popstar, she's not changed a bit since she became famous but it is a bit weird hearing her on the radio or seeing her on the tv and thinking we were having sunday lunch at our nan's house together the other day 😂

mcjx Thu 18-Apr-19 12:55:55

Naming the person I know would definitely out me. When I met her it was in a lot of national/international newspapers and magazines.

But I wish I could name the person!

Ihopeyourcakeisshit Thu 18-Apr-19 12:59:21

Why would it out people, are you their only friend?

AliasGrape Thu 18-Apr-19 13:02:52

Not proper famous but a comedian who is occasionally on tv, more regularly on radio. I enjoy hearing his radio show, find seeing him on tv weird but actually can’t bear to watch his stand up - he’s excellent but I just get too anxious for him. I once hid in the loo for the majority of his set then lied and said it was great afterwards. To be fair, unless I’m particularly drunk, I find watching stand up live really tense and anxiety inducing anyway - terrible second hand embarrassment in case they’re no good or die on stage.

CostanzaG Thu 18-Apr-19 13:04:41

Yes I'm friends with an actor. He does get recognised but deals with I. In good does his lovely wife.
It freaks my ds out a bit though when he sees him on TV!

How - again, are you the only person who has ever met this person? Name change if you don't want it linked to anything else
