A terrible airport experience turned amazing.

After being stuck for a zillion hours at JFK, hubs spotted this celeb and alerted me. I approached with camera. A very dorky exchange took place and the celeb's "smoking hot blond girlfriend" - hub's(accurate) description - took the picture. I figured that even if I was the dorkiest ever, I'd never see them again so I went for it. UM, except they were on our flight, standing next to us at baggage, the GF and I washed hands next to each other in the LAX toilet, etc. I was so embarrassed.



I've had a crush on Luke Wilson since 1997. In my day-dreams, our meeting never occurred at an airport when I had gone 24 hours since showering and brushing my teeth! But, I got the pic and well it was the best 7.5 hour layover ever! Thanks to Luke and his lady friend for being so cool.

I'm officially jealous. Ashton Kutcher was on a flight with me years ago and I didn't get a pic. I still regret it

Ooo how awesome! He is a dream boat. My Hubbs kinda had the same thing happen. He is a Vince Vaughn fan and ended up meeting him in Iraq. He didn't think he would have to join the Army and get sent to Iraq to meet him. LOL

Nikki - I can only imagine your pain. I told myself that if I ever spotted my crush, I would do everything I could to have a chat, within reason, of course.

CB, Phemom,Julie, Michelle - Thanks ladies for the Luke love. I think most people think I am insane for talking to him.

When I first saw this photo in the post, I was like "that's not what B looks like is it...no, that's not him." Then the face began to look familiar and THEN I read the post. It all made much more sense then. :-)

You are not crazy, just very very lucky! Luke Wilson is gorgeous and a great actor!

I started carrying a camera around with me at all times after seeing The Patriot just in case I ran into Mel Gibson. I figured that you just never know! And I wanted to be prepared :) A girl I went to college with got to interview Heath Ledger in person for our school paper and she DID NOT TAKE A PICTURE WITH HIM!! I was also head over heels for him and could not believe she had missed her chance. Good for you for talking to him! Its hilarious that they were on your flight :D

I just saw that pic on TWD. I love it! I just saw a movie with Luke Wilson in it that was pretty good- Henry Poole Is Here. Check it out!
