    I meet a lot at work, but I have to pretend to not care lol. I don't normally have in-depth conversations with them, but one time Sandra Oh brought up how she wants to stop saying "you guys" and asked the millennials in the room how we felt about the term. She was super nice!

      I use y'all instead of you guys because it is more logical and genderless

      Working at NBC means seeing celebrities should be a day to day thing for you ☺️

    We did a class on (famous baseball player) Curt Schilling’s game company, 38 studios (maybe ~2009). I laid out the reasons it was going to fail (too big of a first game, lacked the traditional distributor funding/partnership, Curt being clearly unqualified, self-funding from small personal wealth, etc).

    Then the older dude at the back of the room went up to speak. Curt Schilling did not agree with my thoughts on him and his company. He was not very polite about it. I took great pleasure watching that company crash and burn and be sued for the next 7 years.

    Tl;dr: Met Curt Schilling. Who’s stupid now, Curt?

    I saw this singer called Beyonce in a restaurant in South Beach Miami. I didn't know who she was at the time but seeing all the paparazzi, I guessed someone popular. Next day when I saw it on a local story, I came to know it was her and she was a big name.

    Said Hi to Edward Snowden on a video call once. That’s about it for me.

    When I worked in Newport Beach, I was walking near Equinox gym and one tall guy was going to that gym. I didn't recognize him and didn't care, but another guy nearby was excited of seeing a player from LA Lakers. So I was near someone famous, but no idea who.

    Yes, many from working in the TV business and living in LA. They’re just normal people and most times you can’t even tell who they are walking around in normal everyday life.

    I've seen a couple at work (Mario Lopez, Amanda Bynes and Robin Thicke) but I just see celebrities in general because I live in LA (Jason Momoa and Jeremy Meek, the hot felon).

    Yes, a famous singer called Altaf Raja. He was very down to earth. Like literally.
