No special rooms that I've seen at the LAX AC, and I've walked pretty much every square foot of it. Of course, maybe I'm just not invited . And you didn't take the opportunity to (assuming you were alone and able) guest Al Pacino into the FL? For shame!

Unless he was flying to a qualified destination (with appropriate COS or EXP status for international destinations), there would be no reason to think that he would be admitted to the FL.

Besides, I've seen plenty of celebs in the LAX AC.

He looked like he was in pain when he walked past us; angel said he was heading to ORD. Probably in first in those crappy new 738 seats.

While it wasn't my sighting, my friends were in the JFK FL last night and Madonna was hanging out in the lounge with the family and a few assistants. Presumably headed to London.

In the DFW D Admirals Club, and Gary Busey is here. He's more tame than I would expect - though still more than a bit "crazy" - but then he's always portrayed almost as a caricature.

I'm headed to LA; curious if he will be on that flight with me.

Yup ... He was in 1C, and "Busey-ed" it up the whole flight

I was next to the The Undertaker going from DFW->PHL last night in 6A. Very polite guy, offered to move his big overnight bag from under the seat to the overhead when he saw my bag wouldn't fit under the seat with his. Definitely a big guy too but not as big as he looks on TV...

I had no idea who he was (funny how we never stop to actually look at someone's face in flights) until the FA told him "keep up the good work" and then saw a big group of fans greeting him for autographs in the exit.

LAX celeb room

I believe there may be a celeb room, but not in the AC itself. A few months ago I was exiting the LAX AC and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were walking by. They weren't going into the AC but passing it, going towards my left as I was stepping out of the exit. She was walking fast, and was real business like. He had on a hoodie and was just moseying along with a slow gait, but keeping up with her because she is really, really small.

Since I also had to go left I was walking right behind them. They turned in into the departure area about 2-3 gates down from the AC. There is an unlabeled door on the right wall near the window as you look out towards the tarmac. It has a numeric keypad lock. KK apparently had the code memorized because she walked right up to it, punched in the code, and they both walked in. I was able to look in. I looked in and it was just a hallway, but who knows where that led to.

So, I don't know of any celeb room in the AC, but there is a place that celebs, or at least KK/KW can access a few gates down from it.

Any room that keeps those two away from me is a perk, IMHO.
