People Share Their Experiences Of Encounters With Celebrities

“A few years ago Tenacious D played a concert in Kuala Lumpur. The building the concert was in was pretty small, and there’s no way they made a lot of money from the show. Despite that, after the show was over, Jack Black came back out on the stage and just chatted and joked around with people for like an hour. My buddy yelled out, “I love your shirt!” Jack Black yelled back, “I love your shirt! Trade me!” Then he took off his shirt and threw it to my buddy, who threw his shirt to Jack Black. Jack Black threw my friend’s shirt back after pretending to try it on (my friend is much thinner than Black, haha), and then told him to keep his shirt from the concert.”

“Nick Offerman is a gem of a human being. He came to my small college in an Illinois Suburb for a book tour thing and I was in an acapella group at the time and we were rehearsing in the building where he was doing the signing and he accidentally walked in on us and ended up staying to listen to a song, complimented us, hung out for 5 minutes and signed stuff for all of us. Super genuine, funny guy.”

“Haven’t had many rude experiences, but I can definitely attest that Michael Fassbender was a kind man who acted more excited to meet me than I was to meet him. Very satisfied by that experience!”

“I worked with Mads Mikkelsen. He is the nicest person you will ever meet. Zero ego. Just a pleasure to work with.”

“I met Renee Zellweger and she was so much kinder than I ever could have imagined. This was when hurricane Harvey hit Texas. I was working at Austin Pets Alive and we took in thousands of animals from hard hit areas. It was insane. One day Renee Zellweger just showed up to volunteer. No warning, no fanfare. In fact, the only reason I noticed her is that she was wearing long sleeves and long pants and it was august in Texas. She spent a week volunteering. She did laundry, cleaned out poop covered crates, and drove vans of dogs from Houston to Austin (not a pleasant job with the smell and the barking). I hope this doesn’t get buried because she was truly amazing. So so nice and hardworking. The laundry room was next to my office so we became friendly over the week she was there. There are multiple news articles about this so it’s legit. Forever a fan.”

“Robin Williams was shooting a film in my city he stopped by the nearest senior home just to say hello and take pictures with the residents. No other reason than to brighten up their day class act of a man. My grandma was a resident.”

“Johnny Depp when he was filming for public enemies in the town i lived in. They turned our whole downtown area into a movie set, and even rolled out this fake cobblestone over the roads. Was pretty neat. As for Johnny, he was very sweet and nice. He asked me if i tried out to be one of the extras. I said that i did not since they were looking for more thinner women. He could not believe they were not including the locals of all shapes and asked if i wanted to be an extra, i said no i would probably be too scared to mess up on camera anyway. Gave me a kiss on my hand and told me that i have a beautiful soul and continued on his way down the line of fans.”

“I met Gordon Ramsay once at a book signing event, I was just walking around the area and ran into him on his free time. He was actually so nice and down to earth. Talked about food for a few minutes and how he’s liking his trip so far. Super nice guy and nothing like you see on his cooking shows.”
