Getting pulled over by the police is always a drag, but it has to be even worse if you're someone famous.

Not all celebrities handle the situation with grace, but the outcome is likely to be interesting whether they manage to keep things professional or not.


Reddit user u/bfly1800 asked:

"Cops of Reddit, what famous people have you pulled over and how did it go down?"

I gave Werner Herzog a speeding ticket in the Hollywood hills in the early 2010s. He was very polite and even shook my hand. Nice fellow.

Do you know why I pulled you over? "Because I was traveling.... at Unimaginable speeds"

My dad was a cop. Pulled over none other than Marilyn Manson for an unsafe signal lane change (he was bragging the day it happened) in the early 2000s. Said he was non descript and low key, apologetic and didn't act like a big shot above the law.

My dad pulled over Clint Eastwood. I guess this was just after they started requiring licenses to drive motorcycles in California. He pulled him over because he was driving squirly like he didn't really know how to ride. His was response to license issue was "Man next thing you know you'll need a license to ride a horse."

My father was a police officer for 27 years and in one day he pulled over Paul Newman, who, apparently, was notorious for speeding. So, my dad goes to cite him and gets a call for an accident that needed assistance down the road. Then sometime shortly thereafter, my father pulled him over again and Newman allegedly groaned, "Not you again.."

I was a NYC Park Ranger in Central Park. I asked Christianne Amanpoor from CNN to put her dog on a leash and she said "do you know who I am?"

So I said, "I don't care who you are, put your dog on a leash"

Former police cadet and dispatcher here. I was on a ride along and was told this story. So this officer pulls this car over for speeding. She then suspects the driver of being drunk. She calls in his driver's license to run it. The dispatcher tells her, "You have Nick Nolte pulled over? Do you know who he is? He's a movie star." The officer is young and doesn't know who Nick Nolte is. Turns out he wasn't drunk, he was just being Nick Nolte. She gave him a warning and sent him on his way.

I was working as a lifeguard and we had the beach red flagged (no swimming) for rough surf. There was this girl swimming so I hopped on my ATV and headed down to call her out of the water. Her swimming was... weird, I couldn't put my finger on it right away, part of determining whether or not I have to rescue someone is to evaluate their swimming stroke.

She wasn't in obvious distress, just swimming around in her... weird sort of way. I blow my whistle to get her attention and she starts swimming back to shore.

At this point I should probably mention that we had a surf contest going on and there were a bunch of pro surfers in town because of it.

She walks out the water and at this point I realize why her swim stroke was weird, she only has one arm. Now I've got to tell Bethany Hamilton that the water is too rough for swimming.

I wasn't a patrol officer, but rather the sheriff's deputy at Aspen's airport, Sardy Field. I had to threaten to tow both Kurt Russell's and Hunter Thompson's vehicles more than once when they left them where they weren't supposed to, parked right in front of the airport. Hunter was Hunter and just mumbled and groused, and Kurt usually just waved and smiled. Dirty violators, the both of them ;)

I can still remember Russell's license plate... VCD711

My co-worker wrote Wes craven a ticket. He didn't know who he was and so when he gave him the ticket, he just was like "here's you ticket Mr. Craven". My co-worker told me that if he knew he wrote a ticket to the nightmare on elm Street guy, he would have issued a warning instead. My co-worker is also from Kosovo so when he tells it with his accent it's extra funny

When I was a cop I pulled Blake Shelton over once. I walked up the window went through my little spiel "Hello my name is Officer juscvin with the city Police, The reason I've stopped you tonight is insert crime, may I see your license and insurance verification". He gives me his stuff and it's really late so I haven't even figured out it's him yet I'm just thinking this guy looks familiar he was really friendly and pretty apologetic super nice guy I wanted to ask for an autograph or picture but felt like it would've been unprofessional.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
