Everyone dreams of meeting their favourite celebrities and famous world icons but the chances of these dreams becoming reality are zero to none. Sure we could line up for hours outside Brangelinas multi-million dollar estate, waiting for the couple to leave the house, with the hope of getting a small glimpse of them through the tinted windows of their stretch limo. But there is a saner and more logical way of meeting the stars that can guarantee you getting up close and personal with them.
Madame Tussauds is the only place you can see all your favourite stars under the one roof. OK so they're made from wax and aren't exactly in human form but they are exact replicas and it is the closest thing to seeing the stars in the flesh.

Madame Tussauds Sydney has unveiled the wax figure of one of Australia's most famous characters, Mick Dundee at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Dressed in his cowboy boots, a leather waistcoat and his famous hat adorned with crocodile teeth, people were fascinated by the resemblance the wax figure had to Mike Dundee himself.
