Well, I saw Martin Clunes (he's a British actor, don't know if he's known in America at all) when he was filming in Wales. And I caught a glimpse of Pearl Jam as they were leaving a concert venue a few years back. And I've met a few relatively famous politicians, but they really don't count as celebrities.

So I think that answer is none.

Okay, WHY do I always seem to start a second page of any thread I reply to?

Without counting Bono Edge and Adam, I've seen:

Noel Gallagher ( I actually bumped into him and he didn't hit me! Surprise!)
The drummer from Foo Fighters when he used to play with Alannis Morisette
Gavin Friday
Camille O'Sullivan ( She's famous in ireland...sort of)

And I can't think of anybody else at the moment...

Various figure skaters:
-Ron Kravette (had some ice dancing lessons with him!)
-Mark Mitchell (got a consolation medal at a synchro competition from him)
-Scott Davis
-Todd Eldridge
-Todd Sand (as in Jenni Meno and...)
-Michelle Kwan

I saw Maeve Binchy, the writer, at a cafe in Dalkey in Ireland.

My mother's cousin's father-in-law is Brian Dennehy, but I've never met him.

The only celebrities I have met are Avalanche players.

Robby of the Goo Goo Dolls waved at me, Johnny Rzeznik said "Hey!", and Mike walked right past me once at a concert of theirs. None of them signed autographs, presumably because I was there.

my parents say i met the guy who played alex in 'taxi' in the grocery store when i was two.

this doesn't really count, but when i was wandering around at the warped tour in search of something to drink i wandered past the dropkick murphys booth and ken casey was outside saying hi to everyone standing around who looked like they might be dkm fans (ie. people wearing dkm shirts, like me). but it didn't register that he had said 'hi thanks for coming out and supporting the band' until about 5 minutes later.

i get to meet andrew w.k. on friday. he's stopping by the radio station

He was with his wife Tea Leoni and a big bodyguard. Also at the Caverns was Michael J. Fox and his wife and kids. But I never got to meet them.
i'm jealous. david duchovny is my honey.

i've stood in line next to kirk hinrich, but i don't expect anyone but a basketball fan to know who he is.

i think i saw the singer from queens of the stone age walking around campus today. QOTSA played a show with the chili peppers here tonight, and the guy looked like him, he looked rather lost, and i heard some other people walking behind me say 'hey wasn't that the guy from queens of the stone age?' after he was far enough away
