If you could invite 5 famous people to a dinner party, who would they be and why?

Okay folks, I’m looking for some interaction here with my peeps so I hope you humour me here. The rules, well, I’m going to say that they have to alive. I know that takes away some really cool people BUT it also will help to narrow down things a bit. Please please please DO post your ideal guests too, I really want to read them. 

So! Who would I pick for my amazing dinner party and why?

1. Al Gore

Al Gore is a champion for climate change and probably one of the most unluckiest people never to be president of the United States. I believe, like Hilary Clinton, he also won the popular vote but as we know, that does make for a hill of beans in this world. Regardless, besides the fact that he made An Inconvenient Truth which is AMAZING by the way, he has been a staunch advocate of supporting the fight against climate change. Not only has he founded businesses for sustainable living, he has tirelessly worked on increasing awareness and I would just love to speak with him and learn more of his experiences. 

2. President Obama

Okay, it’s just a coincidence that I have selected two politicians but I have SERIOUS man love for Barack Obama. I love the eloquent nature in which he puts himself forward and how he handles himself. He is obviously an incredibly smart man. Someone who came from not much, not only has he been the leader of the free world for two terms but he has managed to remain a great family man with a wonderful wife and two emotionally balanced children. Plus, I can imagine him being able to level with me. I think he’d be an immensely entertaining guest. 

3. Professor Sabine Bahn

Sabine Bahn is someone who you may have never heard of but she actually a phenomenal woman. She is a Professor at the University of Cambridge and the Laboratory Head at the Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research. Her work varies from computer modelling to her fascinating studies on molecular diagnostics for psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. As someone who is immensely interested in neuroscience, I would love to learn about her theories and studies and to hear her perspectives on the future of psychiatric diagnostics and treatment. 

4. Kim Kardashian

No no, hear me out. Literally, this would be like a case study. All I hear is that Kim is a smart business woman blah blah but I would be interested to know just how the mind works of a woman who marries a chipmunk (I mean Kanye West) and also gives birth to his children. I mean, come on….thinking you have a bit of Kanye West inside of you is terrifying. I figure I am most likely going to get what I expected from Kim but yet it would be interesting to see if the ditzy socialite woman you see on television is the same person when the cameras are off. 

5. Jennifer Lawrence

Okay, so this one is pretty much because I ❀️ Jennifer Lawrence. I’d say I’m sorry but I’m not sorry. She seems like a really fun and cute person. Her interviews always give me a good impression and she’s beautiful.  She has also been a strong advocate for equality especially in the acting business arguing that women should receive equal remuneration for their employment as men so she is not just a pretty face. My only reservation is that I’d be too shy to speak ha ha!

Who would YOU pick? Please let me know in the comments!

  1. Keeping to five is difficult!! But I’ll start with two on my list that you’d invite too: Obama and J-Law. He is just THE coolest, I love him. He’d be up for any party games, have interesting stories and we could bag an invite to his Apocalypse Trump bunker.
    She does look like a lot of fun. She’s intelligent and articulate and I’d be happy just looking at her.
    My others: David Attenborough. The man’s a legend. End of. We need to record him saying every word in the English language to preserve for narration for all time!
    Derren Brown: he’s a genius, he’d entertain us and mesmerise us with his brilliance and I could bore him with anecdotes of when I’ve met him.
    Bear Grylls: I’m torn between whether he’s a douche or hot. But the guy fell out of a plane and survived so I’d still rather have him on my team when all goes to pot. Plus he’s met Obama so seating plans wouldn’t be a problem. As long as he doesn’t make us eat anything inappropriate though!

    As a side note, if I could smuggle in a sixth guest, I’d choose Phillip DeFranco. He’s one of my favourite YouTubers, smart, inquisitive and seems like an all-round nice guy.
    And dead people (yes I’m pushing it with the invites!) would be Steve Jobs and Audrey Hepburn. Technical visionary and beautiful muse / ambassador for children seem like interesting dinner guests. πŸ™‚

  2. This is one of my favourite questions to answer… your list is very good.
    Mine would have to be Lionel Messi who has been the greatest footballer in my lifetime so far!
    Cheryl Cole – because she seems lovely and the whole world has been gossiping about her recently so I’d love an inside scoop.
    Tupac – I know you said they need to be alive but I truly believe he is so I’m going with him, I think he’d have some amazing stories to tell!
    Prince Harry – I 100% needed to include a royal in my dinner party list so I thought I’d include the fun outgoing one… plus he’d maybe let me meet his gran which is a dream of mine πŸ˜‚
    And final one on my list would be Joey Barton – long story but he played for the team I support this summer..: then there was a slight falling out and he got given the boot, would love to know what he exactly said to be kicked out so soon!

  3. I’m going to make my list “living and dead”…

    First up would be Audrey Hepburn…I’ve been fascinated with her for years. What an amazing life she led, coming full circle from growing up in a war-torn country to giving up an illustrious acting career to help children in need.

    I would love to hear her converse with Malala Youszafi, another strong female who has dedicated her life to seeing that other women have access to education.

    I admit that I did not vote for Obama, but I have really come to respect him over the years even if I don’t always agree with him. He would definitely have a place at the table.

    To kind of mix things up a bit, I’d also invite the late great Jeff Buckley, an incredible musician whose life was cut short in the 1990s. He was such a gifted artist.

    Last but not certainly not least, I guess the deceased will outnumber the living but I would insist on having my maternal grandmother present. She died of lupus at age 47, 23 years before I was born. She lives on in my mom’s stories and advice, but she is the one person I would have given anything to meet. She was a beautiful and gracious woman who didn’t have an easy life.
