Celebrities and artists of note are just people, too. That is the first rule to remember when coming face to face with a star. They are no better than the rest of us mere mortals. That realization should ease the anticipation or disappointment should they prove to be less than kind. However I've had encounters and heard stories were the celebrity couldn't have been nicer. Meryl Streep is a gem. Idina Menzel is a sweetheart and Lady Gaga is super tiny. So my divas were on point.Redditor u/Qazival wanted to hear about the times they've encountered the famous by asking.... Which celebrity did you meet and found they were much kinder/ruder than you expected?
"I Love Your Shirt!"jack black GIFGiphy
A few years ago Tenacious D played a concert in Kuala Lumpur. The building the concert was in was pretty small, and there's no way they made a lot of money from the show.
Despite that, after the show was over, Jack Black came back out on the stage and just chatted and joked around with people for like an hour. My buddy yelled out, "I love your shirt!" Jack Black yelled back, "I love your shirt! Trade me!" Then he took of his shirt and threw it to my buddy, who threw his shirt to Jack Black. Jack Black threw my friend's shirt back after pretending to try it on (my friend is much thinner than Black, haha), and then told him to keep his shirt from the concert.
It was a great experience!
I met Renee Zellweger and she was so much kinder than I ever could have imagined. This was when hurricane Harvey hit Texas. I was working at Austin Pets Alive and we took in thousands of animals from hard hit areas. It was insane. One day Renee Zellweger just showed up to volunteer. No warning, no fanfare. In fact, the only reason I noticed her is that she was wearing long sleeves and long pants and it was august in Texas. She spent a week volunteering.
She did laundry, cleaned out poop covered crates, and drove vans of dogs from Houston to Austin (not a pleasant job with the smell and the barking). I hope this doesn't get buried because she was truly amazing. So so nice and hardworking. The laundry room was next to my office so we became friendly over the week she was there. There are multiple news articles about this so it's legit. Forever a fan.
A Kinder Soul
I met Gordon Ramsay once at a book signing event, I was just walking around the area and ran into him on his free time. He was actually so nice and down to earth. Talked about food for a few minutes and how he's liking his trip so far. Super nice guy and nothing like you see on his cooking shows.
The Aussiedonald trump v GIFGiphy
I met Liam Hemsworth at a supermarket in a small coastal town in Australia earlier this year. I almost didn't even notice it was him as he fit in seamlessly being the down to earth, laid back Aussie guy he is. He was super nice and genuine and even made an effort to thank the employees and the store's security on his way out.
When in Malta
Brad Pitt is a top-notch guy in real life
I met him in Malta while he was filming Troy. I was guiding a group of students as a group leader on a holiday trip and we saw Pitt just walking out of a cafe. He took time to take lots of pictures with all the kids and was really nice to everyone. Among my group were a bunch of teenage girls who almost fainted. Hilarious day all around.
Also i recall a comedian being impressed when he met Arnold Schwarzenegger. The man has a bodyguard who has to stop him from talking to a single fan for too long, otherwise he would have never stopped on time for the rest of the fans to get their turn to speak to him.
Imagine being so nice to your fans that you need someone to stop you...
The Fassi dont know michael fassbender GIFGiphy
Haven't had many rude experiences, but I can definitely attest that Michael Fassbender was a kind man who acted more excited to meet me than I was to meet him. Very satisfied by that experience!
Kinder - Nicole Kidman. To be fair, this was back in the 80s before she hit the big time. She was, however, making movies then and had a profile. I did ask her what it was like being in films and she replied: 'Oh good, but, you know, Tom (Burlinson, her then boyfriend) gets all the good roles'. She struck me as a very genuine, decent person.
The Good Guys
David Beckham - not just a nice guy, but when his kids came to the secret event we were filming and some people spotted them, he came across and told the public who could see him that he'd do any photos or signings they liked, but to please leave his kids alone as they were not in the public eye and he wanted them to be afforded privacy. Good dad.
Jamie Lee Curtis - we chatted about cameras for ages before I realised who she was (after we finished chatting). She had a very nice Leica.
Skater Christina Lenko was an absolute diamond, playing with someone's kids on set between rehearsals, I fell a little bit in love watching her.
Eartha Kitt - despite being mid-80's, she was doing 2 shows a day and would still use the show interval for a fan meet and greet, then her rider was "a salmon salad sandwich". A true star with true humility.
I won't go on about the fools. They tend to be mid-famous on the way up. The bottom rung are just so happy to be entertaining, the top rung have nothing to prove.
Hey RobinRobin Williams Hello GIF by 20th Century Fox Home EntertainmentGiphy
Robin Williams was shooting a film in my city he stopped by the nearest senior home just to say hello and take pictures with the residents. No other reason than to brighten up their day class act of a man. My grandma was a resident.
Chris Noth (Sex and the City's Mr Big) sat next to my brother on a flight years ago. My brother can't have been more than 10 at the time and used to get super nervous and travel sick on flights. Chris Noth was unbelievably kind to him. Told my mum he was happy to keep an eye on him, made sure he had plenty to drink and extra blankets, and even offered him his dessert because he woke up after food had been around. He was just such a lovely man and made my bro feel loads better. Genuinely awesome guy!
Spoon full of sugar
Julie Andrews was a sweetheart. My boss was starstruck because he loves Mary Poppins so he went out to her table to do his chef thing and he said she was so down to earth and complimented his food.
Harry Connick Jr is also really nice, and so are his kids. They were having breakfast and his kids asked if they could please go to the pool after, and said "please" and "thank you" to the waitress. They were really polite and you could tell that their parents don't let them get away with bratty shit just because they're rich.
Best of Welsh
Michael Sheen - he does a lot of charity work for our shared hometown. I had no idea just how well known he was as a kid. Years ago he spent a night bowling with our youth club, it's been a decade and I'm still blown away by how caring and genuine he was. He's always doing something wonderful for the people in South Wales, and every time I hear about what he's up to I still can't believe my luck that I met him.
He's the best of the Welsh.
I used to work in the music and film industry (as a grunt, when I was in my early 20s), so I've met a lot of celebrities.
George Clooney was the nicest one - SO down to earth, and would play practical jokes on the entire crew very regularly. He had these t-shirts made for every crew member to wear with the director's picture on the cover of People's "sexiest man alive", lol. (This was not an attractive director - it was kind of a joke between them I guess.) He had his car drive people home if buses weren't on schedule or whatever. He'd eat lunch with the crew rather than in his trailer.
I had the pleasure of working a show on a David Bowie tour he did in theatres. Every member of his band made a point to thank the crew members. IDK if Bowie himself did it but I wouldn't be surprised.
My dad had a coworker who was in Lake Como and decided to go look at George Clooney's house. While he was standing there, he heard a voice say "Don't just stand there and stare, come have a beer inside" and it was frickin' George Clooney. So he did, and said it was awesome. This was before George was married with kids, so I don't think he'd do it now. (Disclaimer: the coworker could have been lying, but he DID have a photo of him clinking beer bottles with George Clooney, so they had a drink SOMEWHERE.)

Have you ever fantasized about going out on a date with a celebrity? Or spending a day with a revered rock star?
Few lucky people have had the opportunity to meet their idols of the stage and screen thanks to various contests and promotions.
Those who are still waiting to have their fantasy dates realized may wonder if the stars they admire so much are anything like how they are portrayed by the media.
Curious to hear from lucky individuals, Redditor jjmoffitt asked:
"To anyone who has 'won a date'/'spend the day' with a celebrity, musician, athlete, etc. Who was it with and what did you do?"
Date With A Twist
"I was in Toronto and won a contest in a win a date with a celebrity."
"I had gone to the place where I was going to meet up with whoever I won a date with and it turned out to be Shawn Mendes. I'm a guy by the way."
"When we both realized what happened, I guess his manager read my name which is Jesse and assumed it was a girl named because they probably misspelled it by Jessie, we both laughed it off. We ended up just hanging out for the day because why not and he was actually pretty cool about it."
"We went to a pool hall and played a couple of games and went to a bar for a bit. Real chill guy."
"My dad won a dinner with Charles Peanut Tillman when I was young. My dad wasn't very into sports, but I was playing youth football at the time and my dad asked if he would rather go to one of our football practices instead. Tillman came and was absolutely awesome, gave our whole team lessons and advice, signed anything we wanted to be signed, an absolute amazing guy."
"Back in 2011 my friend's Dad won a contest for the Foo Fighters to play a set in his garage in Yonkers, NY. He was only allowed to invite a certain number of people to the show, and luckily my friend knew they were my favorite band so I was one of the lucky attendees."
"Before the band arrived, I got to play Taylor Hawkins' drum kit while their tech guys set up the equipment. When the band finally arrived, there was like an hour of just hanging out with them. I remember talking to Dave Grohl and Pat Smear. It was insane. Also I believe I was so incredibly awkward because I didn't know what to say because it was so surreal."
"Then they played for like an hour. I was like 2 inches away the whole time."
"Can't even believe I was lucky enough for that to happen to me and I owe my friend an enormous debt for one of the coolest days of my life."
"(Also they had people filming. If you go on YouTube and search "Foo Fighters Garage Tour New York" you can see a clip of that day)"
Hanging Out At The Wood Shop
"Got to chill with Nick Offerman at his wood shop. That laugh that Ron Swanson does.. That is his legit laugh. He giggles, I thought it was acting. :D But he's a chill cool dude like you would expect."
"Dinner with Ice Cube. Banquet hall full of winners. He came table to table meeting and greeted everyone and taking pictures. I also ad a CD signed for a friend."
"He Was A Machine"
"I bought a Sprite at Ralph's and unknowingly entered myself into a contest to win a day playing video games with Kobe Bryant at Gameworks. When Ralph's called to tell me I was the winner, I almost hung up on them."
"It was me + 3 friends, and probably a group of about 30-40 people who spent a day with Kobe. He was super chill and friendly, spent a lot of time with the younger kids. And he absolutely destroyed the game where you shoot the little basketballs through the little hoops, he was a machine."
A Big Time Crush
"Kendall Schmidt from Big Time Rush. It was a costume contest but since it was raining heavily only like six people showed up and there were like 4 or 5 winners or something? It was very easy to win due to those odds. It was also supposed to be a 'go sledding with Kendall' thing but since it was raining they turned it into a pizza lunch date. It was a lot of fun. I could've done without getting hate and death threats from the girls who didn't win, though. Teen girl fandoms are brutal."
With: Gigi Hadid October 2018 Got to paint pottery with her and a group of others at Color Me Mine. She wore no makeup, jeans & a cropped sweatshirt and looked beautiful. Very kind and quiet. Laughed at a couple of my stories. I really liked her and she made everyone feel comfortable."
Like A Dream
"Got to meet Ed Sheeran and see his backstage setup. Felt like a dream since my sister and I are huge fans and I was so nervous. But he was incredibly down to earth and genuine. Felt like talking to a friend. Ed is the best!"
A Decent Hunk
"Not me, but my dad."
"My dad used to work for a rather popular boat manufacturing company, and as part of an incentive, the company would pick one of the workers to go drive the boats at big boat shows. Throughout his years working for the company, my dad was picked twice, and he got to drive a boat for Hulk Hogan both times."
"He said that aside from the macho public image, Hulk was actually a decent guy. They made small talk about their families, and various things that were going on in their lives. He was a little cocky, but my dad just looked past that, because he was so starstruck to be talking to an actual celebrity."
The Flirty One
"I met Rowdy Roddy Piper at a 'meet and greet' in Nottingham a few years ago when he was on tour talking about his life. He was being very rather flirty and complimentary to me so I said 'I bet you say that to all the girls!.' He gave a delightful chuckle and said, 'Yes, Ma'am, I do!' He was such a good laugh and I was sad to hear of his demise shortly after."
"I don't really remember how/why this happened, but Danny Glover made an appearance at my local library when I was a kid. I think I remember him reading to us? Either way, I sat on his lap and I remember him being pretty chill."
The Fleeing Celeb
"I drooled on my shoulder sitting next to Isobel lucas on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney in about 2004."
"I'd fallen asleep after a three day bender before the plane took off."
"She moved seats. Does it count?"
If you're from a big city where celebrity sightings are commonplace, or you somehow work in the entertainment industry, you're probably a lot more comfortable with the idea that celebrities are just regular people with a really unique job.
It can be hard to see through the characters they become in the media, but every now and then a person gets a peek behind the curtain. Chance encounters can often reveal who the celebrity is as a human being - and it's shockingly not always a total dumpster fire.
You'd think fame would start to get to you after a while, and maybe in some cases it does, but apparently a lot of celebs genuinely don't suck as people. Reddit asked people to talk about the nicest celebrity they've ever met, and these stories are honestly all kinds of adorable.
And right now we could all use a little bit of that. So let's let the celebs save the day and make us smile just by being their genuine selves. How incredibly meta.
L.L. Cool J Is In The Bookstooooooore!
I worked at a Barnes & Noble in high school. LL Cool J lived right next to it and would come in almost daily. He knew most of our names, really nice guy.
He visited my best friend's nephew on the burn unit when nephew was 8. Nephew nearly died, had 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 80% of his body. LL Cool J visited and kept in touch for a while after.
Not my style of music, at all, but I will always be a fan of the person he is.
Down To Earth DaveGiphy
Dave Chappelle and his family live a few miles from where I went to college, and he and I frequented the same Starbucks. I ran into him about ten times. One day he sat with me for about 45 minutes and talked about screenwriting. It was amazing. He's as down to earth as his stage persona suggests, and it's no wonder he opted to raise his family away from L.A.
Mine is Dave Chappelle too. I was in a college group that brought in speakers and performers so we brought him in. After his act we thought he left, so we started eating all the trays of food in his waiting room. He poked his head in and joked that we were hotboxing the room. Then he came and sat with us for an hour! He sat next to me, and when I told him it was my friends birthday and this friend was a big fan, he took my phone and called this friend and talked to him. It was amazing. This was 2005, I think right before he took a big break from everything.
Danny Devito. I ended up at a hotel bar in Philly with this girl I was hanging out with and her friend. Turns out the cast of Always Sunny was filming the 10th(ish?) season and staying at the hotel and hanging out downstairs. So girl's friend flags down Danny as he's walking by and he ends up sitting with us for a solid 2 hours. Buys us a couple rounds. And tries to invite the girl up to his hotel room; which was a weird turn but he also introduced us to Charlie Day so I'm calling it a win.
Not At All Like House
Having met Hugh Laurie in person, I can confidently state that he is one of the nicest and most humble celebrities out there. Not only is he completely happy to interact with his fans, but he also does so in a way that makes each and every one of them feel like they're a friend. He remembers names and personal details with amazing accuracy, and he makes each conversation seem like it's an extension of a treasured (and ongoing) dialogue. Add to that the fact that the man is outwardly hilarious, and you've got a recipe for a genuinely great guy.
A Wink And A Head Nod
Peter Dinklage is a lot of fun! Really cool guy. His laugh is incredibly infectious.
He and I had a funny encounter. We were both at a coffee shop in the Bowery at like 6:30 AM. We were the only ones there. He'd ordered a fancy drink of some sort so had to stand there and wait. I ordered a filter but it was a long process pour over type thing.
So he and I were stood there next to each other for 3-4 minutes. It was awkward because I don't really talk to celebrities / public figures. But at the same time it was weird because it was just the two of us and it was obvious I knew who he was.
In the end I gave him the chin nod. He winked and gave me the chin nod. That cleared the air and we were able to get on with our day.
My aunt met Steven Tyler and said he was super chill. Except she had no idea who he was, and he was just some guy who bought a lot of the musical instruments she was selling at a charity event. She posted a video of the two of them singing together on Facebook, and made a comment about how she was happy that this nice musician was making enough money to live off of. I had her go look up Aerosmith videos and she was shocked it was the same guy.
My stepdaughter was maybe 7 years old. She and I were sitting in a coffee shop and she was complaining about her mom making her take piano lessons. A man behind her goes "my mom made me take music lessons too. And I've made a pretty good living ever since." And it was STEVEN TYLER! Aerosmith was in town for a show and our coffee shop was near their hotel. He sat down and chatted with her for about 10 minutes. I was blown away. The 7yo? Not so impressed by the random old guy talking to her about piano lessons. It was very kind of him to give her the pep talk though.
I saw him sitting in a cafe with his son. Extremely nice, I waited until they got up to leave before I went and asked if I could get an autograph for my mom (who's a huge fan). He asked me a few questions about her and wrote a quite nice autograph for her. He asked if I wanted one as well and I told him that meeting him was more than enough.
I had told him where she worked and he went in the next day and made a point to stop and chat with her. Truly a class act.
She came to my synagogue one day and gave a speech and then came around to our classrooms to talk with us a little. She was extremely sweet and incredibly beautiful. Seemed very patient and caring.
Gene Wilder, but there's a story behind this...
I worked at a pharmacy in the '80s and was asked to deliver medicine to Gilda Radner (Gene's wife) during her cancer battle. After a long delay to make the delivery due to issues related to the getting in touch with her doctor, I was finally given the prescription and drove up to their house to make the delivery. During my drive, I was excited at meeting one of the brightest comedy stars of the time...
When I arrived, I rang the doorbell and Gilda answered. I knew she was sick, but even I was surprised at her gaunt appearance - she did not look well at all. Immediately, I realized she was very angry because of the long delay in getting the medicine to her. Unfortunately, she let loose all that anger at me. I apologized many times (even though I had nothing to do with the delays).
After she finished and I gave her the prescription, she closed the door on me. I was not upset at her, though - indeed, I was very sad - that this brilliant comedienne was sick and was going through such an absolutely awful ordeal... This was an awful situation and not at all as I had hoped my encounter would go.
As I turned around to walk away from the door, I went several steps before I felt someone tap my shoulder. I turned around and it was Gene, letting me know that his wife was very sick and he apologized many times for her behavior. He then gave me a nice tip for the delivery service and shared his gratitude for the weekend delivery and work by my pharmacy.
I'll never forget the encounter and appreciate that I got to meet both of them, even for a brief time, under difficult circumstances...
My girlfriend works at a high end grocer in los angeles and among the many celebrities she encounters daily, Rob Schneider is not only the most genuinely nice guy, but has become a bit of a friend now. He picked us up in a van for her 30th bday and drove us to his comedy show, paid for our table, dinner, everything.. truly such a nice fcking guy
At Comic Con. I spent about 10 to 15 minutes talking to which is way longer than you're supposed to. She went out of her way to be nice. She did this with every fan (making the line take a really long time but worth the wait, her people actually had to hurry HER on while she was talking to fans.) She also ordered pizza for everyone standing in line that had to wait and she was also giving out her phone number to some fans. Emma also specially signed my photo, leaving a personal note. She's great.
Trust me, not everyone does things like this at cons.
James Avery (Phillip Banks of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). I was walking with my three little kids and lots of baggage in the Philadelphia airport car rental parking lot and he offered to help me with my kids and bags to get to the shuttle bus. He was genuinely really nice.
And Obviously, Mr. RogersGiphy
Mr. Rogers. Absolutely as kind and gentle and lovely as he seemed on TV.
I was lucky enough to spend 6 hours sitting next to the man on an airplane. I was 7. Highlight of my life.
We ate lunch. I spilled on him. I thought I had ruined everything, but he just smiled and gave me his dessert.
A friend of mine used to work on his show. Apparently he was exactly the person his TV image conveyed.
I went to high school right next to the building (WQED in Pittsburgh), where they taped his show and we'd see him frequently coming and going. Now, for teenage guys, Mister Rogers obviously wasn't "cool" but since we all grew up watching him, so he was okay. This was around 1981 or '82.
And then one morning, we were hanging out at the Senior Smoking Area, a side door entrance to the school that faced the WQED building, talking with a kid named Randy. He was a bit of a stoner; not a great student, denim jacket with 'Led Zeppelin' written in black marker on the back, greasy hair, the whole deal. He was a funny guy and we hung out with him, but he definitely seemed destined for a difficult life, probably pretty lost, no plans for college, etc.
So as we stand there, we all see Mister Rogers walking up the path toward WQED, and we're all like "Hey, check it out, it's Mister Rogers," and suddenly he looks over at us, and his arm shoots up and he waves and says, "Good morning, Randall!", with a big smile, very energetic and sincere.
And Randy says "S'up Mister Rogers," and pulls another drag on his cigarette and just grins. We were speechless and were like "Dude, you know Mister Rogers??" and Randy said, "Yeh I mean, I see him like almost every day".
I'll never forget that morning because, as stunned as we all were as teenagers, I think back on it now (at well over 50!) and it reminds me just how nice and accepting Mister Rogers was of everyone. Here was this misfit of a kid, smoking and hanging out, looking a mess, and Mister Rogers cared enough to obviously find out his name and remember it and make an effort to at least say "hello" to him everyday. Incredible.
Let this article serve as your reminder that - just like us - celebrities are terrible people.
When the only times you see someone, they're busy being the hero in your favorite movie or belting out your favorite tune, etc. it can be easy to forget that they are pretty normal people the rest of the time.
Being a normal person means getting into the same kinds of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad stuff that the rest of us do. Celebs typically get the benefit of dealing with very little in the way of consequences for their actions - which is why so many of their controversies just disappear like all evidence of that one Sinbad genie movie.
Reddit user Alvinschwartz asked:
You guys ready for a tour through a glamorous Hollywood a hellscape? Let's be honest - you think you're ready but you're not. We kept the more violent and horrific things off of this list and we still ended up talking about some seriously disturbing stuff.
Let's get this party started the way we imagine all Hollywood parties do - with naked bongos!
Close The WindowsGiphy
Matthew McConaughey was arrested in 1999 for getting really high and playing the bongos while naked at 3 AM.
I freaking love his quote about the results of that arrest:
"But what's the lesson?" he ponders. "Shut the window that has the beautiful scent of jasmine blowing in because it's two in the morning and you might wake a neighbor."
Mark Wahlberg chasing and throwing rocks at black children while yelling "kill the n*gger" in 1986, then in 1988 assaulting 2 different Vietnamese men in one day (ultimately knocking one unconscious with a piece of wood), while making "numerous unsolicited racial statements about "g**ks" and "slant-eyed g**ks" to the arresting officers, after telling them "That's the motherf*cker whose head I split open!" regarding the victim he rendered unconscious.
Got charged with attempted murder, plead guilty to felony assault, got sentenced to 2 years in jail of which he served 45 days.
He started recording with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch in 1990.
Then, in 1992 he fractured his neighbors jaw for no reason at all, by "viciously and repeatedly kicking him in the face while another man held him down".
Read his wiki, it's a wild ride.
Came here for this one. Had to tell a coworker this one when he said "oh Mark Wahlberg seems like a good guy".
I was like, nope, not a good guy.
Said 9/11 wouldn't have happened if he were on the plane, as an example. The worst part is he said it in 2006. This wasn't an emotional response during emotional time...that was his true belief FOR YEARS.
"I would have beat terrorists, landed it safely"
I'm disgusted by his profiteering off the Boston marathon bombing too.
Truly, honestly just trash.
Stallone The Stallion
Sylvester Stallone's first real movie role was in a porno.
Gotta credit the man for not shying away from it. He was in a low place, did what he had to do to survive without turning to crime, and when basically bribed/blackmailed to keep the company quiet about it, he gave 'em the finger and owned what he did.
"Stallone had his first starring role in the softcore pornography feature film The Party at Kitty and Stud's (1970). He was paid US$200 for two days' work. Stallone later explained that he had done the film out of desperation after being evicted from his apartment and finding himself homeless for several days. He has also said that he slept three weeks in the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City prior to seeing a casting notice for the film. In the actor's words, "it was either do that movie or rob someone, because I was at the end – the very end – of my rope".The film was released several years later as Italian Stallion, in order to cash in on Stallone's newfound fame (the new title was taken from Stallone's nickname since Rocky)."
He has stated that after Rocky became a hit, the owners of The Party at Kitty and Stud's offered to sell him the rights to the film for about US $100,000 in order to prevent its re-release, but the actor "wouldn't buy it for two bucks."
Max Wright, dad from Alf TV series was an alcoholic and a crack addict who participated in gay orgies with homeless men. There were even photos and videos circulating.
Wesley Snipes V. Everyone
Wesley Snipes VS the rest of the cast of Blade Trinity. That scandal was so funny!
He was on a lot if drugs during Blade Trinity. He wouldn't show up or wouldn't do the script. Watch it again. There's a bunch of scenes that cut between Ryan Reynolds and Wesley Snipes. They basically gave Ryan Reynolds more lines and filmed scenes with him when Snipes didn't show up. Later they filmed Snipes' scenes with him saying one word lines, then edited it together.
- He hated the director and threatened to beat him up on multiple occasions. This may or may not have happened.
- He refused to film a sex scene with Jessica Biel because of her ethnicity.
- In one scene, he didn't even open his eyes, he just CGI'd them in.
- He only communicated in post-it notes and made everyone reference him to as "Blade."
There's probably more, but this is what I can think of.
What A Rush
Rush Limbaugh went on an all-male trip to the Dominican, and was caught on his way back with a bottle of viagra in his doctor's name.
Under The Rug
In 1995, when singer Ty Herndon was first gaining popularity on the country music charts, he was arrested in a public park in Fort Worth for showing his penis to an undercover police officer and trying to get the guy to have sex. Because country music was so homophobic at the time, it was much better for his reputation to get the public indecency charge dropped in exchange for pleading guilty to meth possession since he was also high and in possession at the time of arrest.
Country radio quickly swept the whole "oh wow, Ty Herndon is gay" stuff under the rug. He went on to have a bigger career, and only finally came out as gay 19 years later.
The Couch Incident
Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch, confessing his love for Katie Holmes, only to find out it was a possibly contracted marriage and she escaped Scientology.
Doggy Road Trip
When Mitt Romney and his family were accused of driving 12 hours to Ontario with their dog tied to the top of their car. When they got to their destination, the dog was so terrified it had literally soiled itself - they noted that it was everywhere.
It's undoubtedly the Roxanne Pallett controversy. If you're not in the UK, she was on Celebrity Big Brother UK and acted like another male contestant had beat her when, in fact, he did not. Thankfully, the incident happened in view of the camera and she was caught lying.
It seems she has a history of being untruthful and colleagues knew it too well as she has accused a few them of being violent also.
Jenny's Body Count
Jenny Mccarthy's direct responsibility for the rise of antivaxx (financed by Jim Carrey). See JennyMccarthyBodyCount.com
Apparently her son was never diagnosed as autistic in the first place.
Animals that look like celebrities aren't a new phenomenon—they've been part of meme culture since before meme culture was really a thing, but they always manage to make a big splash when someone finds a new one.
Twitter user @nevona recently shared a photo of a dog who bears a striking resemblance to actor Richard Gere, and Twitter users loved it.
Gere, who is well known for his roles in An Officer And A Gentleman and Pretty Woman, has been acting since the 1970s.
You can see the photo of the dog below:
