15 Celebrities Which Are Awesome In Real Life

A lot of us agree that it’s a bad thing to meet a celebrity you look up to and meet your heroes. We’ve all read about celebrities who are rude to everyone and to the paparazzi specially and just full of themselves, despite trying to look cool on the media. Rephrasing the words of Charles Bukowski, though some of the popular celebrities might seem like the bad people on earth, we should feel sorry for them, as the stars might not even know who they are themselves anymore after their many roles on the silver screen. It might be true, but it still not a reason to act like a jerk.

But good for us that it seems that the large majority of popular people are really nice people and treats those who circle them with respect. Don’t actually believe this? Check the stories about Jim Carrey refilling someone’s gas tank, Bryan Cranston reenacting his Heisenberg role for a loyal fan and the many cases Bill Murray was, well, he is Bill Murray.



“I was jogging at the San Francisco Marina back in 1988 I think it was and I saw Robin Williams sitting in the side of his van just chillin’. I said, “How you doin’ Mr. Williams?” He said, “I’m doing great, you running from the cops?” I laughed and stopped to chat with him for about 5 minutes. He was absolutely delightful. Such a fond memory. I wept when I heard he died.”

Tom Hanks at Best Buy. He was in line in front of me with a cart full, all by himself. I was only buying a bottle of water because they didn’t have what I was looking for. I just blurted out” Forest Gump is my favorite movie” like a creep, and he turned around, and said “that was my favorite movie to make! I’m glad you love it.” He then chatted with me while about movies as we stood in line. When it was his turn to check out while they were ringing up his stuff he said “Oh let me get that water for you” and paid for my water. He kept talking to me and then we walked out and he said “nice talking to you! You’re a very nice young lady and always remember… life is like a box of chocolates.. you never know what your gonna get” in his Forest Gump voice. IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER.



“Jim Carrey gave me a ride to the gas station after my car ran out of gas in Bel Aire. I told him I was a huge fan of Ace Ventura and I could mimic his laugh from the movie. Then we both had our heads out the window cackling away. He bought my gas and drove me back to my car. One of the greatest moments of my life.”



“Keanu Reeves. I remember seeing him while walking through New York a long time ago when I was a young, probably very annoying pre-teen. I yelled out, “Yo, Neo!” And then I obnoxiously mimicked the bullet dodge motion from The Matrix. He looked back at me, laughed, and mirrored the same move in acknowledgment. It’s such a great memory because I feel like anyone would have been justified in getting annoyed and shrugging this stupid kid off, but instead, he was a good sport and humored me. I’ll never forget it.”



“My sister was waiting tables in NYC and ended up serving Patrick Stewart. She didn’t want to bother him, so she just did her job, but at the end of the night, she told him how much she had enjoyed seeing him in a production of Hamlet that year (2008), and that she hoped he was planning to do more theater in the US. My sister was prepared to leave it at that, but apparently, he was so thrilled at someone who wanted to talk about his theater work (as opposed to Star Trek), that he ended up talking to my sister for a while about his experiences on stage. Just a really nice guy who loves acting.”



“Bruce Willis told me that I have “some pretty cool spiderman skills” I was in Walmart and there was something that I needed on the top shelf and near the back. at the time I was only 5foot (I’m a bit taller now). and so I scaled up the shelf and over to the side to get the food item that I needed. When I got down I noticed this guy watching me, and I realized it was Bruce Willis. and he complimented my shelf climbing.”

“Met Bryan Cranston once at the Bellagio whilst on holiday in Vegas… I was a bit fanboyish and blurted…” omg its Heisenberg!”… almost immediately his facial expression went angry… and he walked straight up to me and actually muttered “How dare you to call me out like that…if people knew who I was, I wouldn’t be in this business… next time you call me out like that be ready for a barrel”… then he smiled and starting laughing and we ended up talking for about 10mins or so about BB…. gave me an autograph.. I was so happy… asked him if he wanted to join a few of us for a drink but he politely declined as he was waiting for his Mrs and daughter… cool guy!”



“I went to a signing by Tim Burton. The line for him was out of the building and around the corner. Everyone was being told that Tim wasn’t going to be able to see everyone. I was lucky, I was near the front. We were also told that we could only get an autograph and picture then had to move on. Tim was amazingly nice and constantly had to be reminded not to shake people’s hands and talk with them because he had limited time. He also ended up being late for a private showing of one of his movies (I can’t remember which one). He was late because he made sure he saw every single person in line. He was just overall a kind and humble man and very sweet. He even looked over my aspiring animator friend’s portfolio and gave her his email, asking her to send him her progress as she improved. A truly great guy.”

My grandma met Adam Sandler in an elevator in Mexico. She didn’t speak English but Adam was kind enough to try and speak Spanish with her. She was delighted, she loves his movies.



“Bill Murray and his son came into an Inuit art gallery (Eskimo on Madison). The owner and I were the only ones there. Then a UPS delivery person came in and freaked out about seeing Bill Murray on her birthday. Murray had his son pick up her feet and he picked her up under her shoulders and they rocked her back and forth while Murray crooned “happy birthday… to yooooou.” After that, I chatted with him a bit and he was super nice.”

“I met Marilyn Manson (emo 16-year-old me’s hero) and he let me pet his cat while I freaked out about getting to meet him. He’s nowhere near as scary in person as his persona or stage character. He’s actually very sweet and somewhat shy. He really didn’t know how to handle a young girl absolutely bawling tears of joy just from his presence, haha. He also picked up my sister for a picture because we couldn’t get both him (roughly 6’2″) and my sister (roughly 4″10″) together in the frame. Overall he’s a really chill guy!”



“Margot Robbie. I work at a restaurant in NYC, the first time I served here I treated her like a normal person, didn’t acknowledge that she was famous or anything like that although she is probably my number one crush of all time. I was really nervous to even talk to her to be quiet honest. She and her boyfriend were EXTREMELY personable we talked about the rangers for a bit and kind of chit chatted. She paid the bill, left a very generous tip and told me I created an outstanding dining experience and asked if they could talk to my manager. One of the biggest compliment boosts of my life. They come back and I wait on them often, I would nearly consider us friends now as we are on a first-name basis.”



“Drunk Ron Perlman gave me a hug and took a picture with me outside of an In N Out in LA. He shuffled past me, and I turned to him and said “Hey, are you Ron Perlman? I loved the City of Lost Children!” and he replied “…what? Ron Perlman? Yeah, I’m Ron Perlman…Yeahhhh, I AM Ron Perlman!” and we exchanged the aforementioned hug. Nice guy!”



“Mark Hamill. This was at Celebration (a Star Wars convention) and my boyfriend paid for his autograph, but he called me “sssssmokin”. I got hit on by Luke Skywalker. Sniffles I’ll never forget you. Seriously, though, he is just lovely.”



“Natalie Portman. I was working with ABC as part of the interview team years ago (before The Phantom Menace even came out). I was talking with her for a while when she casually mentions that she is going to be in the new Star Wars film. Being 17 and huge nerd, at first I just thought she was fucking with me. But then she said, “Yeah, I guess I’m Luke and Leia’s mom.” and laughed. I was so dumbfounded I actually said, “Take me with you.” “To where?” “To the Star Wars.” She laughed and it was the greatest feeling in the world.”
