are you asking what *i* do, what *one* does or what *you* should do? and who is the celeb that you spotted?

Probably depends on the celebrity, but my instincts would focus on treating them "just like anyone else," though I think a simple acknowledgement is fine.

if you want to pay them a compliment, i think it's totally appropriate to say hi. but if you just want to stand there awkwardly, better to steer clear.

That said, certain people are famous for a reason and rightly expect the worship they deserve. Treat them like you would any other of your super-talented genius friends. It is a fair assumption that they are super-talented geniuses, otherwise they wouldn't be famous.

It also think that what they are doing matters. I wouldn't interrupt a celebrity eating dinner in a restaurant, but acknowledgment one at a night club or sporting event is acceptable (since strangers typically interact in these settings).

There'a a guitar store in LA whose policy is treat the rock stars like ordinary people and the ordinary people like rock stars.

The celebrity was Owen Wilson and he was incredibly chill and great to talk to.

I'm all for humor; one of the members of the Fluther community has a web site where they post their pranks. I'm a big fan of their "ask the celebrity to take a picture of you" gag.

1) Ask the celeb if they'll take a picture for you 2) When they roll their eyes and or get ready to do their standard pose, clarify and tell them you want *them* to take a picture of *you* with the camera. Turn the tables, and start a collection - then again, I'm not someone who is impressed by celebrity . . .
