If you could spend the day with a celebrity who would it be?

Asked by lici92 (261 points ) February 13th, 2013

If they have passed away just think of it as if you could go back in time to meet them.

Why would you meet this celebrity?

George Clooney – I like him for his brains, his politics and etc….

1. Ernest Hemingway back in the 1920s/30s
2. Andy Warhol back in 1968

Both of them were so into the “scene” but also worked so hard.

Mark Twain. He’s from Missouri, as am I. He was well-travelled and well respected and his mind is brilliant!

Frank Sinatra in his 40s or Orson Welles at any age.

Dom DeLuise, what a fun packed 24hr laughathon that would’ve been..shame.

Ooh, hard question.

Maybe Carl Sagan. I want to hang out with him and just learn stuff.

Jane Austen. I’d like to spend a quiet day with her and then perhaps attend a ball or dinner party in the evening where in private conversation she’d gently skewer the sillier people present with her rapier wit.

I can’t figure it out. Buddha? Lenin? Machiavelli? Kung Fu Tze? Jesus? Abraham? Moses? Some King with a harem he wanted to share? Don Juan? Miles Davis? So many to choose from. Have no idea how to choose.

I’d probably choose Richard Branson. I think he knows how to show a person a good time by playing hard and having fun.

Joining @diavolobella with Jane Austen, too.
Joining @Pachyderm with Orson Welles, too.
Joining @wundayatta with Jesus.

Maybe Bruce Lee & Marilyn Monroe, Jim Belushi and Janis Joplin.

Neil deGrasse Tyson.

@diavolobella I was thinking narrowly when I read the word “celebrity” but Jane Austen would be tops on my list too.

Seek's avatar

@Rarebear Good choice!

rebbel's avatar

I am joining @janbb, in that she chose brains, interest in politics, etc., and so I go for Britney Spears.

janbb's avatar

@rebbel I bet I could have a better “conversation” with George than you could have with Britney!

I used to occasionally hang around with Carl Sagan when we were both working at the same place in Cambridge.He was a womanizer (seeing his secretary behind his then-wife’s back) and too egocentric to be much fun unless you wanted a lecture. He was really full of himself.

He eventually married the secretary, and then had an affair with yet another woman whom he also eventually married.

Pachy's avatar

@gailcalled, that’s the thing about people we idolize. They’re just people.

I’m betting even Jesus passed gas once in a while ;-)

janbb's avatar

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room Oh – the humanity!

Seek's avatar

I only get one day. I’ll take a lecture.

Michael_Huntington's avatar

Bill Hicks. It would be interesting to hear his take on 9/11, Obama and other stuff.

Seek's avatar

Oh Oh!! Another option: Douglas Adams. Yeah. Douglas Adams.

I’m going to make everyone groan “Oh God, we should have known” with my answer…

Johnny Depp. Not only is he yummy eye candy, but he’s also incredibly fascinating. I’d love to spend a day talking with him.

Pachy's avatar

@janbb—and sometimes not even that. ;-)

JLeslie's avatar

Can it be President Clinton? Or, Hillary Clinton? Or, does it have to be an actor or singer?

Barbara Walters would probably be very interesting, and I like her sense of humor.

janbb's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate Why waste the time talking?

Seek's avatar

Seriously, that guy is the best thing that ever came out of Kentucky – bourbon included.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Steve McQueen.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@janbb Haha, because I only want to screw his brains out once. Or twice. I’d want to hear his stories for the rest of the time. :D

Kardamom's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate In the vein of making everyone groan, because they know who I’m going to pick, I will choose Fran Drescher : )

lookingglassx3's avatar

Charlie Chaplin. xD I have been a huge fan of his practically all of my life, and while I can read as many autobiographies or biographies as I want, it just doesn’t compare to a conversation which would offer a lot more insight into a person whom I consider to be a genius. :)

bookish1's avatar

Graham Chapman, hands down. Most of my heroes are dead actors, poets, and singers, but I think he would be the most fun to hang out with for a day.

AshLeigh's avatar

Jim Sturgess, because he’s sexy :)

FUKADUKA's avatar

Angie Pitt and Brad. Threesome

mattbrowne's avatar

Matthieu Ricard.

Leanne1986's avatar

Barbra Streisand

Harold's avatar

Driving with Jeremy Clarkson

NanoNano's avatar

I would pick Angelina Jolie, before she gave away her boobs.

Changing my answer: Hardly a celebrity, but Michael Lee. Ohmygoodness. drools
