“My brother and I used to act when we were younger, and my parents would take us to auditions and we tried to get any part in anything. Well, my brother got a little tiny part in Bruce Almighty. We got to go on set and kind of wander about and it was pretty fun. My brother was little and wanted to meet Jennifer Aniston, so he asked around and finally got a hold of her. We had lunch with her on set and she was such an amazing, down to earth person. She didn't act like she was a big shot, she wasn't stuck up, and needless to say it was the coolest lunch ever.” - TheRealTittySprinkle
I wish she would be my best friend already. She could tell me all her hair and eyelash secrets....talk to me about Smart Water... spill the beans about Brad. What really happened, Jennifer?
“I spoke with Larry David when they were filming Curb Your Enthusiasm in New York City a few years ago. He is exactly like he portrays himself on his show. He ended our conversation with "I think we're good here." - Run-to-the-sun
So, you are telling me that Larry David is just like Larry David in real life? That is not surprising.
“Aaron Paul is not just one of the nicest celebrities I've ever met, he's one of the nicest people I've ever met. I said hello to him at Heathrow and he thanked me for being a fan, was very gracious, but then he turned it around and started asking me about what I was doing in London and what I did for a living, so we talked about that for a minute.” -unknown
“Gordon Ramsay challenged a prison inmate to an onion cutting competition. The guy was about twice as fast as him. Gordon stopped chopping and just watched him for a minute until the other guy noticed Gordon had stopped. Gordon asked him when he got out and the guy said sometime early the next year. He offered him a job the moment he got out. The guy is now one of the head chefs at one of Gordon's restaurants in the UK.” - Sweetwill62
Despite his tough-as-nails TV persona, Ramsay is a total softie.
“I went to his concert and then after to a diner for some food. When I walked into the diner, I noticed Manson sitting in a booth with Twiggy. The waitress walked me to my table, past his booth, so I decided to tell him how great his show was. He was very appreciative and invited me to eat with them. Best meal ever. He and Twiggy were so kind, funny and intelligent. Years later, I went to another Manson concert and met him backstage. He remembered eating with me at the diner. I couldn't believe he remembered me. I will never forget those two encounters. Great guy.” - Truthisoutthere89
It looks like Manson is one of the most, "beautiful people, beautiful people, AHHHHHH."
“I had Steve Buscemi in my taxi about a year ago. He was incredibly down to earth. I treated him just like any other customer and I think he appreciated it. We had a good conversation, he asked me lots of questions and seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say. At the end of the ride, he reached over the seat and shook my hand and introduced himself. When he said ‘My name is Steve’ I lost my professionalism. It was so hard to play it cool and not go total fanboy the whole way.” - 666oderus666
Steve Buscemi is a legend. I'm surprised that this taxi driver was able to hold it together like he did. I would drive off the road.
“Alice Cooper is a seriously nice guy. We were at the same restaurant in Vegas. I didn't want to be a total goon and bother him, so I asked a waiter if he could ask if a fan could say hello (he wasn't eating, just waiting around). He waved me over, introduced me to his son, and we had some small talk. Big smile the whole time, made a few jokes.” - buttermuseum
“I threw up on Arnold Schwarzenegger's foot outside a restaurant. His response was an immediate: ‘It’s okay kid, I throw up every time I eat here too.’ His wife then proceeded to run inside and grab me water and a bit of bread to settle my stomach. They were both incredibly nice about it all.” - youllgetoverit
Full disclosure: I waited on him once. It took everything in my power to not say, "I'll be back" when I went to get him a glass of water.
“I worked at the Apple Store in Los Angeles when Neil Patrick Harris came in and I helped him out. I realized I couldn't pretend that I didn't know who he was, so I tried to figure out something not lame that I could say. About an hour before he came into the store he tweeted about it being National Suit Day and for people to tweet pictures on them in their suits. He was actually not wearing a suit but jokingly I said ‘I saw you tweeted its National Suit Day...why aren't you wearing your suit?’ He laughed and said he would be in it later when he gets to work. He was a super nice guy.” - Jah87
And then he worried for the rest of your encounter that you were a stalker and continued to look over his shoulder for the rest of the day to make sure you weren't following him.
“I met George W. Bush at an event. I realize he's not the most popular, but he is one of the most charismatic, fun-loving guys I have met. He gives and does so much for charities its ridiculous. He has a fantastic sense of humor and even without the camera's rolling wouldn't bash Obama. His wife was very gracious and the picture of how a first lady should be.” - Richard_Fitzsnuggly
“A former co-worker worked on a popular TV show that Bryan Cranston guest Starred [sic] on post-Breaking Bad. Co-worker told him at the appropriate time what a fan he was of Breaking Bad. Mr. Cranston thanked him, but then days later, after he wrapped, came back into the production office pulled up a chair, sat at my co-worker's desk and asked, ‘So. What do you wanna talk about?’ The two then spent 45 minutes bonding over their love of Breaking Bad.” - filmcanman
Oh wow, an intimate interview with Heisenberg himself? That is a dream come true.
“My family and I met Tracy Morgan in the food court of some mall in San Francisco a few years ago. He was sitting in the corner with a few friends just hanging out, but when he got up to leave, he walked right past our table. As he walked past, my brother (who was 17 and really into football at the time) said, 'Hi' and Tracy stopped and talked with us for at least five minutes, asking my brother about how his football team was doing and what position he played, making jokes and all that. I didn't really know what to expect but he was a super nice guy, and very friendly.” - WampaStompa33
That kid will never forget that moment for the rest of his life.
“When I was about 9, my mom took me and brother on a vacation and we stayed in a nice hotel in Toronto. Our room was next to a room that was hosting a loud party and after hearing some commotion in the hallway, she discovered a few naked people running around the hallways.
She knocked on the door and requested that they tone it down. It turns out the room belonged to rapper DMX, whom my older brother was a huge fan of. Not only did he stop partying to say hi to us, sign autographs and give us some swag, we found out on checking out that he has payed for the whole stay. I think he's pretty cool.” - Discocherry
I hope she sang, "You're all gonna make me lose my mind. Up in here. Up in here" as he answered the door.
“Robin Williams was very friendly and funny, more so then I expected honestly. I went to a dinner with my father and a couple of his co-workers at a fancy Italian restaurant when I was about 18 and about halfway through the meal, a few of the co-workers got drunk and started to scream at the waiter in Italian. In response the waiter, and eventually a few other workers, joined in and were screaming back at the co-workers. Then in between all of them came Robin Williams gesticulating wildly and screaming mock Italian at both sides until they calmed the hell down and started to laugh at Robin Williams and his antics instead. When everyone went back to their seats I walked up to Robin Williams, thanked him for defusing the situation, and did the usual 'I love your work, it's amazing to meet you' spiel and then he began to ask ME questions about my life, how I am, my age, what I wanted to do and was very friendly and caring. When I was walking away back to my dad he stopped me and said words I try to live by, ‘Kid, take a good look at those suits. Don't try to end up like them. If you need booze or drugs to enjoy your life to the fullest then you're doing it wrong.’” - CaptainJudaism
"Oh Captain! My Captain". RIP, you beautiful soul.
“I worked at a large Manhattan restaurant which he frequented often. He was always accompanied by an entourage of his friends - never really celebrities, I got the impression they were childhood, high school, etc friends.He was patient, kind and compassionate to every person that came up to him. He never ate, he just took his crew to town and held court, kindly and humbly, making sure to thank everyone who approached him for taking the time to say hi, congratulate him on a movie, or what not.” - Indie_cysive
It's so refreshing to hear that Adam Sandler still has a good head on his shoulders despite his level of fame.
