Do any of you know or have seen any celebrities in Columbus. This includes sports, news, entertainment etc. I know Halle Berry is from Cleveland but I wonder if she has ever visited Columbus before as well as Lindsay Lohan? Anyone know?January 26, 2013 3:37 am at 3:37 am #531539January 26, 2013 4:30 am at 4:30 am #531541
I’ve never personally seen a big-name celebrity in Columbus, but I hear Eric Clapton is here frequently (his wife is from here). Wikipedia has a pretty good list of famous people from here:January 26, 2013 6:25 am at 6:25 am #531542

I believe clapton owns a house in powell. Schwarzenegger is probably the biggest name that consistently has been in columbus over the years. The arnold always bring some names like lou ferrigno(incredible hulk)and a wide variety of mma fighters. I’ve been also been told brent musberger likes to come to columbus to golf quite often although he would probably only be a celebrity for college sports fans. I’ve seen jack nicklaus and john glenn several times in passing as well as a large amount of NFL and NBA players. Generally they have ties to OSU although they have been accompanied by other players who apparently are friends of theirs.January 26, 2013 10:25 am at 10:25 am #531543
The dude from How I Met Your Mother is from Bexley and returns occasionally. Maggie Grace (Lost, Taken, The Following, and now Californication) is from Worthington? and has been back frequently, I even know a local photographer who got to do a shoot with her.January 26, 2013 11:46 am at 11:46 am #531545
Wow. This is pretty cool. I guess more famous people visit Columbus than I thought. I guess though some keep it low key when they are here. I know Bow Wow is from here and owns a home here when he frequently visits here too.January 26, 2013 11:55 am at 11:55 am #531546
Oh, forgot one, Beverly D’Angelo graduated from Upper Arlington and comes back for the reunions and 4th of July Parades pretty regularly.January 26, 2013 1:37 pm at 1:37 pm #531547

Lots of big time politicians visit here during election years. POTUS, VPOTUS seem like they’re here all the time.
