This past weekend we headed off to take a quick nibble of the Big Apple. My youngest daughter finished college in December and graduates on May 10th. All she wanted for a graduation present was a trip to the Museum of Modern Art with my husband and I. What a jewel she is, because her desired destination is one of my favorite places to visit, as well.
Whenever we visit Manhattan, I always hope to spy a celebrity attempting to inconspicuously traverse the busy streets. My greatest hope is to see the lovely Hugh Jackman, who has been my number one celebrity crush for quite some time.
I, also, wouldn’t be too disappointed if the very tall, blond, and handsome Alexander Skarsgard crossed my path.
Fortunately, my adorable husband doesn’t mind my celebrity foolishness. He even took me to see Hugh Jackman’s Back on Broadway show a few years ago.
This trip, my quick little eye didn’t spy Hugh or Alex, but I did surprise my daughter and husband by seeing Justin Jedlica sitting outside with his luggage, waiting for a friend. Justin has been a guest on many talk shows and TV specials about plastic surgery. He is touted as the “Human Ken Doll” because of his extensive plastic surgery. I first saw him on TLC’s My Strange Addiction series. While he is a surgical anomaly, he is also very intelligent. He’s designed surgical implants and works as a surgical consultant.
According to my friends and family, I have fairly large cojones, and had no problem with politely approaching him. He was so very sweet, and willingly chatted and took pictures with us.
My less bold daughter, sweetly introduced herself and I snapped this great shot:
I found out recently that my daughter reads my blog each day on her lunch break. She kindly gave permission for me to post this picture of her with Justin.
Though I didn’t run into my celebrity crushes, meeting Justin was a lovely experience and I certainly wish him well in his endeavors.
Do you have a celebrity crush? Have you ever met a celebrity? Tell me about it! 🙂 Have a great day everyone!
