It must sound weird but I don't really have one. Oh, I'd love to meet my favorite singer (Michael Jackson) but I've learned enough in life to know that reality could never match the fantasy and I'd be disappointed. There are plenty of people I find fascinating such as all the women who fought for women's rights, many members of the British royal family, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and counting. But I'm a great fan of history, and I know what their times and ways were like. I'd rather keep the fantasy intact than be disappointed. Logically, we all know that these people were and are just people who managed to get themselves caught up in history by having the guts to raise their voices and say no. But they are all just people, one way or the other.
You certainly have a point. With famous folks, living and deceased, it's best to not meet them in-person lest they turn out to be jerks.
Many of the above mentioned had faults and bigotries and it's best to keep an idealized vision so you could truly appreciate their good parts.
That said; If you want to talk to those no longer in the material plane, chat with people you knew, personally and liked. I'd love to see my maternal Grandma! She was SO COOL! Also; Her husband (My Grandpa, who passed before I was born), her sister (My Great Aunt), her mom (My Great Grandma), her oldest son (My Uncle), etc. There's a lot of neat family that are no longer around.
