15 Of The Most Wholesome Celebrity Encounters Ever

If you’re an A-lister in the showbiz, your life can’t run without travel and communication. From makeup artists to paparazzi, you come across tons of people on a daily basis. Although it might look like celebrities simply have no time for us “mere mortals”, it turns out that some of them are pretty friendly and down to earth in real life. God certainly took some extra time on these people (At least that’s what these celebrity encounters suggest).

A while back Reddit user Kdial2002 urged people to share the most wholesome celebrity encounters that they’ve ever had. He received numerous amazing stories that might change the way you see certain celebrities:

Zendaya

“I met Zendaya at Disneyland when she was first starting out. I was 21 years old at the time, but I still knew who she was because Disney was always on in my house, and I thought it’d be cool to get a picture with her. Understandably, her security was pushing her through and trying to keep the fans away — Zendaya stopped her security and said, ‘Look, nobody standing here would have a job right now if it wasn’t for people like them watching the show and supporting me. I’d really like it if you’d let me have a few minutes with my fans to thank them. It’s the least I can do.’

It was really surprising (she was only 13 or 14 at the time, I think) and she took pictures with all of the fans who asked (including my group) — she even complimented my boots and hair. She was overall really gracious and nice, especially for a young teen who suddenly became ‘famous’ in the public eye.”

Hugh Jackman

“A friend of mine went to the premiere of X-Men Origins Wolverine and they camped out by the theater, he said he woke up and he was told that Hugh Jackman had bought everyone who camped breakfast. It was a little breakfast sandwich and an orange juice I believe, he also said there was at least 100 people there.”

Carrie Fisher

“I once met Carrie Fisher at a book signing. When it was my turn, she kindly said, ‘Hello’ and all I could blurt out was ‘I love you!’ She hilariously replied, ‘I know’ (like in the Star Wars films). Carrie then told me she liked my Empire Strikes Back shirt, and I couldn’t help but just stand there and cry of happiness. Nicest woman in the galaxy!”

Keanu Reeves

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

Jim Carrey

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

Meghan Markle

“I met Meghan Markle during her Royals trip through New Zealand — when she and I locked eyes, she bypassed everyone else to speak to me. She asked me who I was, and she let me ramble on about how much of an inspiration she is to me as a feminist and biracial actor. She told me to keep going after my acting dreams and said, ‘Don’t give it five days — give it five years.’ We said goodbye and when I started crying from feeling overwhelmed, she walked back and held my hand and told me not to cry. It was the best damn day of my life.”

Raven-Symoné

“When I was 8 years old, I was in New York City and went to the Disney store with my parents. I walked upstairs and guess who I saw: Raven-Symoné! I shyly approached her and asked for a picture and she said, ‘Of course, sweetheart! I love your outfit, by the way!’ I walked away singing the That’s So Raven theme song, and she sang it along with me!”

Daniel Radcliffe

“I served Daniel Radcliffe his dessert at an event, and tripped and spilled some of it on him, probably due to seeing that I was serving Daniel Radcliffe, and he stood up and started apologising profusely to ME. Was very sweet and asking if I was ok.”

Britney Spears

“I went to a Britney Spears concert in Las Vegas and my friend happened to know someone who worked with Britney, so we got the chance to meet her before the show! When I finally got to see her she was incredibly shy and quiet, and just before I left, Britney said, ‘You’re really pretty!’ I could have just DIED right then and there.”

Tom Felton

“Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter) was very sweet, met him at Comic-Con one year, he told me I had a beautiful smile”

—potatochild3

Snoop Dogg

“About 14 years ago, my friends and I went to a concert with Snoop Dogg. After the show, one of my friends went along to a club where there was an afterparty. She wasn’t dressed for ‘da club’ and was wearing dirty old sneakers and jeans. The bouncer wouldn’t let her in, but Snoop was there and turned to the bouncer, saying, ‘Nah, man, she’s wit me’ and let her in.'”

Michael Jordan

“My cousin caddied for Michael Jordan at a charity golf tournament — he was around 14 years old at the time, when baggy Dickie pants were all the rage. By hole #9, my cousin was sweating in the Midwest heat — as they passed the Pro Shop to proceed to hole #10, MJ stopped and handed my cousin his credit card, saying, ‘It’s hot outside and [you’re] sweating. Run inside and get yourself some shorts.’ My cousin quickly got a pair of shorts and caddied the rest of the round, and MJ tipped him $600.”

Beyoncé

“My friend was super nervous and panicked when she met Beyoncé, so Bey held her hand until she felt OK.”

Miley Cyrus

“I was working on The Last Song with Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth where I had many kind interactions with both of them, but this particular one stands out the most. We were filming in a community college (staged as a hospital) and during a break, I went into the restroom — it was totally empty except for Miley, who was sitting up on the wall of sinks with her makeup artist, just chatting. I really had to go, so I sheepishly apologized and said I’d be quick, in case I was interrupting. As I was heading into the stall, Miley said, ‘Do you want me to turn the water on for you?! I get SO pee-shy. Here, I’ll just turn it on for you.’ I chuckled and said, ‘It’s okay, I lived in a sorority house with 30 other women, so you learn to get over it quickly — but thanks!’

As I washed my hands, Miley divulged how she wished someone had been there to turn the water on for her at the Grammys when Mariah Carey was in the stall next her.”

Stan Lee

Stan Lee. He was my neighbor for a while, and he directly wrote me letters which I now have framed on my wall. Tom Brady wasn’t great, Steven Tyler was really cool/chill, but Stan Lee was the best by far.”
