I don't think they want a huge fuss, but i'm sure they dont mind people appreciating their work, people look upto celebrities, they can be their idols or maybe inspiration, that is why they want to talk to them, I don't think I'd quite class it as intrusion (Although some people can take it too far!) A small hello isn't going to do anyone any harm! It's fare enough if you feel it is intrusion, and you would choose not to go upto someone famous and speak to them, but I do sometimes think that you make people feel in the wrong, maybe because they want to spend a few moments with Simon or any other celeb, and get a picture or autograph, and I dont think thats fair, have your opinion, share it, but dont take it too far. The thread was set up for people to answer the question that Breugel asked, a bit of fun really, as it is unlikely any of us will bump into Simon in the pub! Unfortunatly
and I think the thread should stay light hearted and fun!
