People Share Their Most Mundane Celebrity Encounters
Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind[rebelmouse-image 18356562 is_animated_gif=
On his 2014 album Mandatory Fun, Weird Al Yankovic sang all about mundane celebrity encounters in the song Lame Claim to Fame. In the lyrics, he mentions being in the checkout line behind Steven Seagal, sharing a public restroom with Jonah Hill and staying in the same hotel as Zooey Deschanel.
A lot of us have that friend who likes to say 'did I ever tell you about the time...' then recount a similarly underwhelming celebrity close encounter.
So Reddit user ghostx2 asked "What's your most mundane celebrity encounter?"
Here are just a few of the highlights.
Sharon Needles[rebelmouse-image 18356564 is_animated_gif=
I once stood behind Sharon Needles at a Lady Bunny show. She stepped on my toe by accident
It was awesome.
Edward James Olmos[rebelmouse-image 18356565 is_animated_gif=
I saw Edward James Olmos on a flight once as I was boarding. He smiled and nodded. My wife wondered why I was grinning like a fool at an old Mexican man.
Stephen King and Molly: the Thing of Evil[rebelmouse-image 18356567 is_animated_gif=
I was sitting on the beach at 7am watching the sunrise, next thing I know, some weird guy is walking behind me with his dog. He looked super disheveled and creepy, and he just kind of waved and kept walking. It was just my mom, stepdad, and I on the beach. That's when we realized who it was - it was Stephen King.
Here's a picture of my mom with him, she was totally caught off guard as he's been her favorite author for decades.
Patrick Stewart[rebelmouse-image 18356568 is_animated_gif=
I waved at Patrick Stewart and he waved back.
Johnny Knoxville[rebelmouse-image 18356569 is_animated_gif=
Sat next to Johnny Knoxville on a plane once.
LeVar Burton[rebelmouse-image 18356570 is_animated_gif=
When I was younger, we went into NYC for something or other, and Levar Burton was at the table next to us. Since I was a kid and watched Reading Rainbow, it was awesome. I was also too shy to say hi or to want to bother him, so he was just there, being left alone.
Shaq[rebelmouse-image 18356572 is_animated_gif=
I was walking into a movie theater bathroom and Shaq was washing his hands. Had I been there 30 seconds earlier I could've stood beside Shaq at a urinal. DAMMIT!
John Goodman[rebelmouse-image 18356573 is_animated_gif=
I saw John Goodman during Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I said "I love your work Mr. Goodman." He said, "thanks."
Kid Rock[rebelmouse-image 18356574 is_animated_gif=
My work van broke down in front of Kid Rock's house. While waiting for tow truck I was asked to move by security, when I explained why I was there he came out with a beer. Chatted 10 mins and went back in.
Robert Redford[rebelmouse-image 18356576 is_animated_gif=
I was eating at the restaurant by Sundance Ski Resort. Robert Redford strolled by, walking on lemon wedge that was on the floor. A lemon seed flew out and hit me on the ankle.
Suge Knight[rebelmouse-image 18356577 is_animated_gif=
Walked past Suge Knight and his entourage. Thought to myself, "was that Suge Knight?" and then some girl was like "OMG, that was Suge Knight"... then I was like, "Yeah, it was Suge Knight"
Stephen Hawking[rebelmouse-image 18356578 is_animated_gif=
My friend held the door open for Stephen Hawking, at a Holiday Inn.
Sal Vulcano[rebelmouse-image 18356579 is_animated_gif=
Sal Vulcano from the Impractical Jokers rides with my company a bunch. One time just cause I wanted to talk to him cause i'm a fan I called him to give him his drivers info and he apologized a bunch for various things.
Which is apparently a thing he does, I learned it on the Inside Jokes episode that he doesn't do well socially and apologizes out of nervous habit and it turns out to be true.
Something like "Yea sorry, I can't check my phone sorry, we're taxiing to the gate now sorry".
Eminem[rebelmouse-image 18356580 is_animated_gif=
Saw Eminem getting a slushy at 7-ELEVEn. I too was getting one and said "how's it going" in a very casual manner barely giving notice kind of way. Dude behind counter was acting like the President of the United States just walked in.
Mark Ruffalo[rebelmouse-image 18356581 is_animated_gif=
Used to work in SoHo, NYC, and one time Mark Ruffalo came in with his kids. When he got to the registers, the cashier didn't recognize him. He asked Mark if he had an account with the store, and then needed to look Mark Ruffalo up by phone number. Mark gave a number that, presumably, was his agents, because when the cashier searched he got back like Julia Roberts, Samuel Jackson, and some other celebs. Cashier looked legit confused, and it wasn't until he was like, "Okay, what's your first and last name?" and Mark went, "Ruffalo, Mark" that the cashier got all red and was like "OMG I LOVED YOU IN THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT."
Mark played it very cool, was super casual, and just in general was a nice dude, even though he obviously wanted to GTFO.
Simon Pegg[rebelmouse-image 18356582 is_animated_gif=
I sold some stationery to Simon Pegg when I was working at Borders.
I honestly did not even think it was him at first because it was like a regular Tuesday afternoon. We really didn't say anything throughout the transaction, but at the end I asked him, "Has anyone ever told you that you look like the guy from Shaun of the Dead?" And he replied in a voice I easily recognized, "I am the guy from Shaun of the Dead."
Gary Busey[rebelmouse-image 18356584 is_animated_gif=
Gary Busey took a photo of my wife and I on our honeymoon in Hawaii. He was surprised we asked him to take our picture instead of the other way around.
Criss Angel & Daniel Tosh[rebelmouse-image 18356585 is_animated_gif=
I saw Criss Angel and Daniel Tosh walking down the street together in Vegas, I said I was a fan in passing and Tosh told me to go f$#% myself.
Robin Williams[rebelmouse-image 18356586 is_animated_gif=
When I was 7 or so they were filming a Jumanji scene right down the street from my house (where Robin Williams handcuffs the cop to the car or something). I climbed a tree in my front yard to watch the filming. In between takes Robin saw me and waved at me. I was way to nervous to meet him.
If you watch the scene it ends with a camera pan and the scene cuts right before it would show my old house and the tree I was in.
Was He Nicer Than Chevy Chase?[rebelmouse-image 18356587 is_animated_gif=
President Ford tossed me a nickel at a parade.
I was 5. I ate it.
I remember my mom holding my head over the toilet as I was vomiting it back up- saying "Damn President Ford!"
People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized They Were Dating An Idiot
Some people are not destined to be friends, and some are absolutely not compatible to date.
But sometimes we don't find that out until we're already dating them, and they reveal a belief they have that we feel is completely ridiculous.
Redditor Ghost7579ox asked:
"When did you realize that you’re dating an idiot?"
Issues with Big Brother
"She refused to pay taxes, have a bank account, or pay for public transit."
"She told me, 'I change my name every few years so they can't find me.'"
"Like, she'd go to the GOVERNMENT and change her name. Legally. So the GOVERNMENT couldn't find her."
"We broke up for other reasons, but this was the first red flag."
"She pre-heats the microwave."
"When I mentioned WW1, and she asked if that was why they called WW2 'THE SECOND WORLD WAR?!'"
"She had no idea there was a first one."
"Her parents also taught her that a guy masturbating and a girl having a period were basically the same thing as abortions. No wonder she was one of 11 siblings."
Not a Guitar Player
"It was in high school, but I got an acoustic guitar to try to learn. I asked my boyfriend who claimed to have played if he could tune it for me."
"This motherf**ker literally turned it all the tight that the f**king bridge ripped off and then acted like it was a piece of junk."
"It was a cheap guitar but he literally wasn't listening for the notes or anything and just turning away and acting shocked, when even I thought that's exactly what would happen not knowing anything about guitars."
Just Slow Down
"The cops regularly put a speed camera on a corner near his house. They have been doing it a couple of times a month for as long as he lived there, and he got caught by it many times."
"He was crying to me (literally) about how unfair the latest fine was and he had no money to pay it, I was fed up and told him to just slow down around that corner."
"I could tell from the look on his face he hadn't even considered that, and he got angry with me for not being sensitive enough."
Stick It to the Man
"She skipped going to community college classes to 'stick it to the professor'..."
"I had to explain that she had already paid to be there and the professor wouldn't care or notice."
"The day I told my girlfriend I think I broke my toe and her solution was to yank on it with all her might."
"It was gout."
"She was struggling with money and being able to save. I came home one day and she had a new 40k car in the driveway. She purchased it without even discussing it with me."
"She essentially sentenced herself to have no savings for the next five years when we were trying to save to buy a house together."
Gas Leak Roulette
"The night I said that I thought I smelled gas, and they grabbed a lighter and struck it without hesitation."
Sonic: The Horror Movie
"My ex was scared of hedgehogs and convinced himself they could jump over a six-foot fence like a cat."
The Knife Tip of Narcissism
"When I asked her to hand me a kitchen knife and she threw it at me (underhanded, but still)… and that’s not even the stupidest part."
"When I tried to explain the basics of handing someone a knife, or pair of scissors, she refused to accept that what she did was wrong or unsafe… It was suddenly apparent that she couldn’t possibly ever admit to being wrong."
Advertising's Version of 'Groundhog Day'
"An ex thought that commercials were recorded live, and the people on TV were employed to do them over and over again."
How the Cookie Crumbles
"She worked for a specialty decorated cookie shop at the mall. Like where you get those dinner plate-sized cookies with 'Get Well Soon' or whatever written in frosting."
"She texted me a picture from work, proudly showing me a cookie she had decorated for a customer. She was legitimately excited to show me her creation. I had not previously seen any of her masterpieces prior to this."
"Not only did the artwork look like a three-year-old's finger painting, but it said, 'CONRADULATINS,' which aside from the obviously bad spelling, she had clearly not even planned out the spacing in her head first, so it said, 'CONRADU,' across the whole cookie, and then, in tiny letters up the side, 'latins.'"
" She thought it came out pretty well. She was about 30 at the time."
"I'll be honest, I broke things off shortly afterwards because of that cookie."
"After her third 'business opportunity' turned out to be another pyramid scheme."
"We didn't date long but knew each other for a while before that. I liked her for her 'work hard, get paid' attitude. Turns out the hard work she was doing was costing her waaay more than she made, and didn't realize it."
"I broke down how pyramid schemes work to this one girl who got sucked into them all the time. Throughout my explaining, she said, 'That sounds like MLM,' like three times. After, we sat in silence. Can't see the forest for the trees comes to mind."
Inexperienced with... Weather?
"One night he turned to me and said, 'You're a bit of a scientist' (I was taking biology in high school, he was in college for music). 'Can you explain how I can take frozen yogurt from the freezer, put it in the fridge, and it melts?'"
"I, already concerned, replied, 'Well, the fridge is warmer. It's not cold enough to keep it frozen.'"
"He then asked, 'But it's still cold?'"
"And I had to explain that there are different levels of cold?"
"Somewhere along the way, I said, 'Cold is the absence of heat like darkness is the absence of light,' and he was so mindblown by that."
Not every relationship is meant to work out, but there are some that are more obviously destined to continue than others.
At least in most of these cases, the person was saved some time because of their partner's knowledge.
People tend to gravitate toward various celebrities based on the work they do without really knowing who they are in real life.
For example, actors who play nefarious characters may have a legion of fans who love the rebellious persona but can be let down after discovering their personality is actually quite loveable.
We often tend to forget celebrities are people too, and their real-life persona may be contradictory to the type of characters they play in movies.
Curious to hear from those who were in for a pleasant surprise after meeting a star, Redditor BEEPY_BO1 asked:
"Who is the kindest/rudest celebrities you've met IRL?"
These positive chance meetings stayed with Redditors forever.
"My sibling has a terminal illness in the 80s and Make A Wish sent our family to the set of Knight Rider to meet David Hasselhoff. Was cool, but that's not what matters."
"Fast forward 30 years and I'm at Heathrow picking up a family member when I see the Hoff standing there on his phone. I approach him and wait for him to end his call. He looks at me and says hello. I tell him that we met. He looks at me and say, 'Was their name ...?' He remembered their name after 30 years."
"That will always stay with me."
The Sweet Canadian
"I used to serve Rachel McAdams at a restaurant fairly regularly. She was always super sweet. Very lowkey and soft spoken in person. She and her husband would come in late and keep to themselves."
"I was at a pub in Toronto years ago and we were watching the Blue Jays home opener on the TV. The bar had a long booth seat with a series of tables strung along so you sat pretty close to the next patron."
"Had no idea that Rachel McAdams was sitting next to me the whole time. My friend and I watched the game and chatted with them throughout as they were right next to us. Just regular pub chatter and comments about the game."
"The Jays ended up coming back to win, and Rachel and I high-fived at the conclusion. She and her friend left, and my friend smacked me after they got up and said "that was Rachel f'kin' McAdams!" So yes, she seemingly has the ability to just be low-key and fit right in despite being a beautiful Hollywood actress!"
Satisfying His Sweet Tooth
"Ian McKellen came to the spa I worked at and was absolutely lovely. We didn’t sell ice cream but there was a farm shop across the road and I mentioned it and he asked me if I’d take him there."
"My friend who worked in the farm shop had his mouth open the whole time seeing me buying ice cream with Gandalf."
They are professionals but are also good with people. A winning combo.
"Penn and Teller hang out in the lobby after their show in Vegas to chat and sign autographs. Very friendly and yes Teller can talk."
"Teller was really sweet to my brother who is handicapped and in a wheelchair. That meant a lot to me."
"I have worked with Steve Martin and Martin Short, they’re both super nice, respectful, and incredibly dedicated to their craft. They’ll spend hours finessing a couple lines in a show they do every night just to get it right for that evening’s performance."
"I was an extra on The Last of Us and met Pedro Pascal. He was super nice. We technically weren’t allowed to talk to the 'talent' and they’d usually ignore us but he and Gabriel Luna talked to us anyway."
Talent Recognizes Talent
'Giancarlo Esposito was incredibly warm and also told me I should try and get into voice acting. I have never and will never attempt to do so but it was such a nice compliment for no reason.'
These Redditors have bragging rights for the best celeb encounter anecdotes.
Congrats Are In Order
"I proposed to my wife at a restaurant in Kauai. Afterwards, Michael Keaton leaned over from his table with his family and enthusiastically congratulated us. Very kind and friendly."
Deadpanned By Deadpool
"Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively live relatively close to my hometown and show up to this Christmas event every now and again that our town puts on. Walked out of the ice cream parlor downtown and sitting on the bench right outside is Ryan Reynolds eating an ice cream cone. I looked up at him as I was walking out and made eye contact, and I looked away, then I looked back to make sure it was him, and he looks me dead in the face and goes 'I know right, isn’t it crazy?' And then he gets up and walks away. 10/10"
Inspired And Encouraged
"I met Weird Al at a con once. While he was signing the photo I bought, I told him about how he inspired me to write my own parody songs. He seemed genuinely interested and asked if I had a YouTube channel, but I told him I just write them, not record them. Super nice dude (at least for the brief time we spoke)."
A Birthday To Remember
"Jeff Goldblum, after a matinee of 'The Pillowman.' Autographs, photos, asking people where they were from, what else they had seen/were going to see. One girl mentioned they were in the city for her birthday as she was taking a photo of him with her friends, he stopped and said “How can you not be in your own birthday picture,” took her camera and grabbed someone from the crowd to take a picture of the group. Would not leave until he was sure everyone got what they wanted (despite his assistant or handler trying to move him along for dinner before the evening performance)"
I met Keri Russell at one of my favorite restaurants. She was dining alone and reading a book.
I'm not usually not one for invading a celebrity's personal space, but because I was a HUGE Felicity fan, I had to say hi.
I told her she was even more gorgeous in person and that I wanted to tell her I admired her work. She blushed and simply said, "Oh, stawwwp!" and laughed.
She then asked about me, what I thought of the food at this particular establishment, etc. She had such a great, laid-back vibe. Not wanting to take up any more of her time, I excused myself.
When she eventually got up to leave, she came over to where I was sitting with my significant other at the time, and she told us with a wink, "You boys, have a good night."
I almost died.
Never dip your pen in the company ink.
An age-old saying warning you not to seek out love within your workplace.
In most cases, this is just a word of caution. In others, dating your colleagues is still against company policies or can only be done after a mountain load of paperwork is completed.
While some might find this ridiculous, many find it understandable and adhere very closely to these rules.
After all, what could be more awkward than your ex or an ill-advised one-night stand sitting in the next cubicle over?
Even so, when you think you feel sexual tension with a colleague or co-worker, it can be hard not to act on that impulse.
Because really, what's the worst that could happen?
"Coworkers that couldn’t handle the sexual tension anymore and went for it. How’d it turn out?"
A Very Costly Mistake
"Really poorly tbh."
"Extremely drunk sex and ended up losing our friendship."

Ups And Downs...
"Made out in the walk-in fridge."
"Went out for a while, got engaged, moved in together, got married, started drifting apart, realized we were growing into different people with very different long term goals, got divorced, haven’t really spoken since."
"Together for close to 11 years total."
"Main issue was kids."
"We both wanted them at first, then she no longer did."
"We cared enough for each other to not want to see the other unhappy long term, and we had an amicable split."
"We did not get married in the walk-in, nor spend a tremendous amount of time in it."
"We DID have an ice sculpture at the wedding however."
"It was not a Netflix & Chill deal, it was years and years ago, so more like Blockbuster & Chill."

You Can't Make This Stuff Up
"He would flirt with me and come over to hang out."
"Told how he was trying to evict his ex girlfriend from the apartment because she wouldn't leave before the lease was up (which was true btw she confirmed that)."
"He told me he liked me alot and wanted to get to know me."
"Then he decided that He wanted to convert to Mormonism."
"He became panicked about going to hell and after we would hang out (nothing sexual) he would sob."
"Full on sob."
"Begging God to forgive him."

"I WAS ONLY THERE FOR 45 DAYS."- PwrtopUltimateSamuel L Jackson Reaction GIF by Coming to AmericaGiphy
You never know when love might hit you, and sometimes it might be on an elevator to your office.
Even so, always proceed with caution.
After all, think about how awkward it is to run into an ex or a one-night stand on the street, then think about what that would be like 8 hours a day, five days a week...
People Explain Which Seemingly Obsolete Companies They're Surprised Are Still In Operation Today
There are so many companies and products that have fallen by the wayside as time marched on.
Some companies we never thought we'd live without.
Some, we're glad to see crumble... I'm looking at you Columbia House.
Who else thought CDs for a dollar sounded too good to be true?
It's always surprising when you stumble upon a company or store still open that you could've sworn had shuttered long ago.
If only I could find a Shoney's.
Best breakfast buffet ever!
Because I certainly don't need anymore Amway.
Redditor HRJafael wanted to know who still has their doors open and has some staff, so they asked:
"What 'obsolete' companies are you surprised are still holding on in the modern world?"
The other day I saw a Radio Shack. I thought it was 1999.
What's next? A Circuit City?
Who is She?Weight Loss Lol GIF by Sofa City SweetheartGiphy
"Jenny Craig just bottomed up this week. I'm surprised it lasted this long."
"I had some older woman knocking on my door at like 2 pm on a Wednesday trying to come in and give me a demo of a Kirby vacuum cleaner. Also, door-to-door salespeople are apparently still a thing in 2023."
"I have a nice Kirby from one of those salespeople. Convinced her to try some homemade shine. Her driver/supervisor stopped and tried some as well. They both got so buzzed they left the demo model at my house. It’s been 4 years and no one has tried to get it back. Quite a few attachments as well."
"I read that Netflix just announced they are going to stop mailing DVD's for rental in the next few months. I thought they stopped doing that a long time ago."
"Apparently this is a big deal for hardcore movie fans, as there are many movies deep in the movie catalog that are not available to view through streaming."
"There's a reasonably large community that prefers physical media, particularly UHD BDs to streaming. I mean it does make sense, those enthusiasts have spent considerable amounts of money on their equipment, so they will naturally get the best possible picture quality."
"There's a secret society among us that is keeping Long John Silvers afloat."
"My grandma liked to go there for a piece of fish and some hush puppies. Then she’d take me to McDonald’s for coffee (for her -I was a small child) and a vanilla cone. When I miss her I go to one of the last Long John Silvers in my area and get fish and hush puppies."
"Secret society meaning those who only eat fish during Lent."
"I mentioned it in a different thread but Lent is like a 40-day Black Friday for Long John Silvers."
"Source: former LJS employee who experienced lines out the door during Lent."
AO What?aol GIFGiphy
"Blows my mind that aol.com is still a thing."
"I honestly thought this was gone and I didn't notice until I worked in IT support and saw people with AOL emails. Total shock for me."
I still can't believe I know people with AOL.
Do they know the century?
Bad Executionraul julia GIFGiphy
"Cutco. Seems like they could be much more successful if they dropped their current sales rep pyramid model."
"Yeah, I never understood the MLM thing. Sometimes the product is actually good, but the execution is garbage."
I need a number
"The yellow pages."
"I do remember before being able to look stuff up online, going out of town & browsing the yellow pages @ the hotel looking for places to eat & many other things. I couldn't tell you when I last saw a set of yellow pages."
"I work at a hotel. About once every two years I get someone asking if we have a copy of the Yellow Pages."
A reason for every holiday...
"Party City. Their stores are huge and every time I go there’s less than 10 customers."
"Party City is one of those stores that makes its nut from a few days a year. The week before Halloween and there's a line out the door."
"4th of July, Easter, graduation time, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are when they do their business. It's a one-stop shop for everything you need for an event that allows you to see it beforehand and not make a bad Amazon purchase."
"Herbalife. Don’t the people know? Lol."
"They've been opening storefronts that pose as small health food shake shops in place of (or in addition to?) the old MLM model. They just opened one down the street from my job and stopped by with free samples."
"They tried really hard to disguise that it's Herbalife."
"It's a really weird business model, you buy a 'one-day membership' in their health club that comes with a shake and an energy tea and I think that's supposed to let them skirt some legal issue with the shops?"
Check PleaseApplebees GIFGiphy
"Applebees. I can microwave my own food."
"The other week I was at Applebee's when the waitress came by and I told her that my Pepsi wasn't tasting right, and she offered to put water in it."
Applebee's? Who in the world wold still eat there? I've turned down free food from there. Geesh.
