Met any rude/horrible 'famous' people? Watch
Skandar Keynes (Edmund in the Narnia films) goes to my college at Cambridge. I've not met him personally as he's currently on a year out, so I can't judge for myself, but I know a fair few people that have and most of those seem not to like him very much.
My grandad met dusty Springfield when she asked him if she could borrow his guitar :-)

I don't approach famous people, chances are they'll kick off, and I don't always bring my running shoes.
Saw Warwick Davis once. Didn't speak to him but he seemed like a nice guy- taking pictures with people and signing autographs.
The other is david millar the cyclist, and he was charming. Was clearly knackered but he was more than happy to have a chat and a photo.
Edit: actually three, I met richard dawkins at an alfred russell wallace day thing in bristol, he was very polite, very smiley and was more than happy to sign my book and have a chat about it.
I was brought up in Central-West London too and have seen plenty of well-known people in our area and around town.
I met my Dad outside a posh hotel in Knightsbridge and Keira Knightley was going in - her driver helped her with her bags and she was like "oh get a move on!" and she kind of brushed past the concierge looking annoyed. I suppose she was in a hurry and stressed out by something, but she came over as a total brat!
Also saw Julia Roberts shopping in Harvey Nicks - she seemed chatty and nice as far as I could tell. Kirsten Dunst was in front of me at the tills in Selfridges food - she was joking and quite sweet with the woman who served her.
Colin Firth was outside the Garrick Club not long ago when I was passing with a friend and this girl rushes up to him and asks for his autograph and he just totally ignored her and carried on chatting to the person he was with. She looked devastated! I can sort of understand it a bit though, someone like him must get loads of hassle all the time.
My sister works in Covent Garden and she often sees famous people. She was sitting at a coffee shop outside with her friend and Emma Watson came and sat at the next table with a mate. My sister, being a total fangirl, was like "oh Emma, we think you're great!" when they got up to go and she just acted like they weren't even there, lol.
