Betty White & Robert Redford (at least I'm pretty sure it's him!)

Back in March when Betty White was on Larry King Live, Larry asked who was on Betty’s “to-do” list.

KING: What haven’t you done that you want to do?  Who is on your to-do list?

WHITE: My answer to that, my standard answer is always Robert Redford.   But that doesn’t get me anywhere.

KING: Have you ever met him?

WHITE: No, and I never want to.  I just want to enjoy it from a distance.  I would be panicky if I ever met him.  I’ve taken his name in vain for so long.

KING: You have to go up to Utah and he’s there.

WHITE: I know  He’s also in Santa Monica.

KING: He’s not – he doesn’t hide.  He’s public.

WHITE: I just don’t ever want to meet him.  It would spoil all the fun.  I want to fantasize and talk about him behind his back.

KING: I’ll tell you, he looks just as good as he does on-screen and has ever looked.  He’s aged very well.

WHITE: Oh, I – tell me about it.

It got me thinking – throughout my life I’ve heard people say things like:
I’d love to meet Bruce Springsteen.
I’d love to meet Sting.
I’d love to meet Eric Clapton.
I’d love to meet Sully Erna.
I’d love to meet Robert Pattison.
I’d love to meet Clint Eastwood.
I’d love to meet Vin Diesel.
I’d love to meet Duane “The Rock” Johnson
I’d love to meet Justin Bieber.
I’d love to meet Derek Jeter.
I’d love to meet Wayne Gretzky.
I’d love to meet Jackie Chan.
I’d love to meet Jennifer Aniston.  }
I’d love to meet Brad Pitt.              }  You can’t mention one without the other two….
I’d love to be Angelina Jolie.           }

Well my question is this:  what do you say to these celebrities once you’ve met them?  I don’t know what I’d ask them if ever I were in the situation to meet a celebrity I was in awe of.  I also worry that if I did figure out something to ask then, they’d be rude and/or do something to ruin their “perfect” image I have of them in my mind.

Betty White has the right idea.  She fantasizes about Robert Redford but she doesn’t want to meet him and “spoil all the fun.”

What celebrities have you met?
What did you say to them/ask them?
Did they say or do anything to ruin your view of then?
Or if you haven’t met a celebrity, who would you like to meet and what would you say to them/ask them?
