Message for him/her? If you were supposed to meet a person who is famous throughout the world or only in you own country, dead or alive, who that person would be? What would you say to him/ her for the first time (other than you love him/her :D)?

Many years ago, I had the opportunity to talk to a famous (in England) English actor/comedian who I was my hero at the time, and I turned it down. He happened to be attending a play on the same night I was, and sat only a few rows in front of me in the theater. 

During the intermission, I could have gone up and talked to him because he was alone, but I didn't.

Why? Because

A) he was there privately, not professionally. I can't imagine anything worse for famous people than to be accosted by fans when they are only out for a pleasant evening and

B) what could I say that he hadn't heard 1,000 before?  There was no way I could have expressed adequately to him how important his example was to me...and although I am sure he would have been very polite to me if I had tried,  it still would have meant nothing to him.

So, I didn't speak to him. And I don't regret it. :-)

Your face is very similar to Pardis Sabeti (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardis_Sabeti)

I would like to meet Steve Jobs. And my first words to him would be "I want to learn from you!"

If I am supposed to meet a famous person I would choose to meet the person who invented the waking up early. I would blame him at the beginning but after a seconds I would lose my temper and take revenge for every moment I waked up early from my deep sleep

I will treat he as a old friend of mine to speak and talk as my family. I am not urgent to talk some topics that interest me. I would prefer to cater to his direction more to learn the value that he/she is trying to convey.
