Celebrities/Famous People that use a Filofax?

Photo linked from Daily Mail
We often see an actor/actress using a Filofax or another brand of organiser in a film or TV show, but they are often a prop or similar. They might not be a Filofax user themselves. Janet has been 

However, there are exceptions, occasionally we will spot a famous person carrying a Filofax or we might read a news story that mentions a 'famous' person uses a Filofax. 

Recently, Coleen Rooney (wife of English football player Wayne Rooney) was seen in court referring to her notes in her Filofax. I won't go in to the details of the court case, you can find it easily enough with the help of Mr Google

Back in 2010 Mrs Rooney was photographed on holiday with her Filofax, the photograph featured in the Daily Mail. The comments at the time on social media ranged from details about her swimsuit, but planner people were more interested in the model of planner and what does she carry in it!! 

A New York Times article from 1987 mentioned several other 'famous' users including Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen and Diane Keaton. Diane Keaton is known to have invented/requested that Filofax made a removable insert for cash and cards. This is also mentioned in an LA Times article from 1988.

I've seen passing reference to Madonna (Singer) and Naomi Campbell (Model) also being Filofax users. 

Some of these news reports are getting some what dated now, are they still Filofax users?

Free For All Friday - No. 717 by Steve

Recently I've taken to using pencil for diary entries that have yet to be confirmed. The entry might appear on all the possible dates. I can then erase the unused dates and use a pen to ink in the chosen date. 

Does any one have a favourite mechanical pencil that will fit your average size pen loop? 

Of course it is Friday so please feel free to discuss anything else Filofax related. 

Have a good weekend.
