I live in Wilmington and I've never even met anyone famous.

Although they filmed/film (not sure if they still do?) that show Eastbound & Down in my old neighborhood. Saw Brooke Shields, cause her husband was the producer or something. And that dude Danny McBride.

Met about a dozen - some nice, some not so nice. Best however is Ben Stein buying us beer in DC when we weren't 21 yet :).

Also, you would be really surprised about how many big time celebrities call Charlotte their home (when they aren't filming obviously). My friend's father is a real estate agent and he has sold houses to some names that really surprised me (Hollywood legends).

Madeline Kahn used to live across the hall from my cousin in NYC. Saw her in the elevator once, she was a midge.
