I haven't, but my aunt used to be a personal assistant to some opera stars in New York. She also told me one, really impressive story. She said one time she was at a friend's house for a party that was held on the back patio. She went inside and said there was this really pretty girl who was too shy to come outside. My aunt said she sat down and talked to her for about ten minutes then went back outside to the party. She found out later from the hostess that the houseguest (the girl my aunt had talked to) was Marilyn Monroe. I am not kidding! She said she never would have recognized her. She didn't look all glam or anything, she just looked like a sweet kid who was having a tough time. She treasures that memory.
