People on t.v. that you've met in person...

Do they look different to you? Heavier in person, hair seem lighter, they were taller??
We went to American Jewelry this weekend (Hardcore Pawn) and met Ashley and Les. Les seems darker in person, they both seemed heavier on t.v., and Les was really a cool guy to talk to. Ashley was strickly professional and right back to work after posing for a pic with my DH and sons (see my avatar), but Les hung around to talk to my son...who really seemed to amuse him! LOL
Who have you met, and how were they different than you expected??

  • I saw Ralph Maccio from Karate Kid. he was shopping in an outlet mall. At 1st I was like "that's not him". Then I saw him walking from the back side and was all of a sudden, OMG it's him !! :-) I wouldn't have caught it, but the store clerks were oogling which caught our attention. He was just like everyone else and fit right in. We didn't talk to him.

  • I met the principal in Ferris Buellers Day off at a restaurant in Englewood, Fl. He was a jerk, he looked the same, but a bit heavier and intoxicated. I am not a star struck person. There were several people there that were excited to see him... Why? I am not sure!!

  • met John Cusack when I was working downtown Chicago Michigan Ave, Acted like I didn't know who he was when his face was on the cover of a mag in the lobby right there- he had sunglasses on yet I know his voice too well.

  • Met Samuel L. Jackson who looked the same if not skinnier and Josie Bisset and her husband. My dh has met Brooke Shields, Buzz Aldrin, Sarah Ferguson (who looked good at the time), Michael Keaton, Oprah, gosh a handful of people I can't remember due to his work. Some are nice and some are awful.
