What were you expecting, him to invite you to his house, for him to make you dinner, open a bottle of wine, then up to bed for a threesome with him and his missus?

I wasn't surprised he didn't want to talk to you, calling him a journalist must have really hurt his feelings

My housemate considers Jason Plato his enemy.

He was doing some sort of young driver event when he was 17 and Mr Plato was the main man. Apparantly he changed the rules/scoring system halfway through which meant my mate didn't win a brand new car.

So I believe he's overtaken him / got in his way a couple of times when he's been filming for Fifth Gear as revenge. evillaugh

OP. You're odd. What would you do if I lurked by your car in the cold for 20 minutes and then complimented you on you're posts on PH when you'd really want to be known as the World Sex champion.

You'd probably shake my hand the get the flock out of there.

Agree with the majority of posters I'm afraid. Not exactly a social setting, and you got to shake his hand.

I think the thing with 'celebs' is not to engage too much with the plebs.
Yeah fair enough with a quick handshake and a hello, but if you're wanting the finer details of heel n' toe then you're always going to be disappointed. From their point of view you're a potential nutter and have been stalking him for the last month, maybe?

It's nice to be recognised but can be a pain in the bum when you've got things to do or in a rush.

doesn't say much for you tbh....
yes

If the chance meeting didn't turn out quite as expected, fair enough. It doesn't sound all that bad as described. Expectations a tad high maybe?

To post about it like this though, that shows much poorer form on your part than his IMO.

I'm surprised and a little disappointed that he was picking up his own dry cleaning. Not very 'celeb' is it? hehe

Don't listen to them, Plato is just testing you. Once he knows you are a real fan he will give you all the time in the world. He'll make you work at it though.... next step is to go round his house, don't go knocking on the door just yet, hang around in a tree, ideally get some pictures on him inside his own house (he'll love that kinda st, really shows dedication). Post some prints through the door with a note saying how good he looks and other random complimentary stuff - don't mention his BTCC career though, he doesn't care about that, it's all the other stuff he likes being complimented about so you did well to mention the journalism bit earlier. After a week or so dress up as a milkman then go knock at his door at about 530am - when he answers give him a knowing wink and lift your milkman hat so he can see around the disguise, remind him of your meeting outside the dry cleaners and ask him if he liked the pics - he'll invite you in and you'll have a great day playing twister and spin the bottle.

I never speak to "famous" people unless I have somthing interesting to say, in the correct setting. Personally I would just feel dumb hanging around to say hello to someone just because they are well known, with no reason other than that to speak to them....

Seriously to the OP, what the F CK?

Freak of the week.


If I'd have been Plato I'd have used my rape alarm.
