what makes a celebrity cool?

I have never been too much into celebrities and their whereabouts, period.

I guess this is because I perceive many celebrities to lack the quality that I most appreciate and admire in a person: humbleness. There are, however, a few famous folks who have gained my respect and admiration...not simply for their skills and accomplishments, but for the amazing down-to-earth humility that characterizes their personalities.

Hopkins, Martin + Bose

Sir Anthony Hopkins, Miguel Bosé and Chris Martin are among my favorites. I wish I could meet them sometime over a couple of beers and confirm my suspicions.

How about you? Who would you like to share a drink with? Why?

i'd love to meet steve mcqueen in the after life, but i'm not in a hurry. chris martin ran past our car with his surfboard once. i didn't care too much about him then, but would react completely differently now if it happened again :)!

good post! hmm I think I'd want to talk to Jim Jarmusch and I'll have to think about others that I'd actually like to talk to...some of the people I admire,like a sculptor Tip Toland, I've gotten to talk to and thoroughly loved her point of view. Great sketches!
