I was downtown once and Willie Nelson and the Rock were hanging out. Weird combo, but both seemed cool.

Oh yeah... does the Prince of Wales (he of the gigantic ears) count? I was a student at UT when he came through touring our building once, back in the 80s. It was funny- he had the usual secret service escorts, and we were standing there talking with one of them, he was complaining about how he was dying standing in the Austin sun in a full suit to hide all his "equipment." Prince Charles pulled up and started to walk in, then hung a sharp left and walked right into the crowd to shake hands. Secret Service guy rolled his eyes and said "oh <bleep>, not again" and had to go form a ring around him. and check out anything people handed to him. One gal gave him a stuffed Longhorn doll as a souvenir, and that caused quite a stir- I thought they were going to rip it open to make sure it was safe...

Cool story. I would say it counted.

I saw Jason Lee (My Name is Earl) walking into the Driskill Hotel one morning after I had spent the night on the sidewalk waiting for The Apprentice auditions... That was an experience. I told him he was "an awesome actor." I felt like an idiot when I walked away.
