You never know when you might encounter your favorite celebrity in the wild!
These 15 people did, and their interactions are so wholesome it makes us smile.
1. Apparently Dolly Parton is just as good-natured as her music would imply.
Only told this story last weekend on @dollyparton’s birthday.— Gareth Dimelow (@gdimelow) January 22, 2019
I was super nervous, as she signed my CD.
“I’ve loved you for over twenty years,” I blurted.
She grabbed my hand and said, “Oh, honey – don’t stop now!”
2. We’re not entirely sure this “Matrix” actor isn’t a benevolent simulation.
I saw Keanu Reeves in Soho and asked him if I could take a photo of him. He said yes and I asked him to pose. This was the result. Very nice dude. Very humble. pic.twitter.com/JQqJnXtzLj— Bucky Turco (@buckyturco) January 22, 2019
3. Leia might be a princess, but Carrie Fisher was a queen!
I was 11 when my family was in same hotel as Carrie Fisher. My mom pointed her out as Princess Leia, and I was skeptical, saying it was NOT her, because, duh, hair. She heard me, came over, hugged me, and said, “May the force be with you.” I was blown away.— 𝔻𝕒𝕟𝕚♿ #ʎʇıʌɐɹ⅁ɟOɹǝuoıssıɯɯoƆ (@ThatRealDani) January 22, 2019
4. Two of Marvel’s most popular actors prove, once again, that they are sweethearts.
And Tom Hiddleston. pic.twitter.com/TbxO1IkJl9— Erin Gould (@iameringould) January 22, 2019
5. A college student’s dream come true!
My son & I were at the Sydney Opera house. He’d just started a journalism degree w his first assignment to interview someone. Alan Rickman & his wife sat down just as the play started. He spent 30mins w my son afterwards with great life advice. #always pic.twitter.com/Uz7JIGH2U9— Anna 💉💉 (@AnnaKEdwards) January 22, 2019
6. This encounter makes us tear up a little.
7. I guess you could say Jon Bon Jovi is wanted… dead or alive!
I was a guest at an event and trying to leave as Jon Bon Jovi was coming in. A throng of fans outside and we ended up chest to chest in the doorway. “Sorry about this,” I blurted out. “They follow me everywhere.” He laughed out loud, patted me on the shoulder. Never felt cooler.— Chuck Bonfig (@ChuckBonfig) January 22, 2019
8. There really isn’t a better combination than celebrities and dad jokes.
While waiting at a pilot audition, Mel Brooks enters the area for a meeting across the hall. The receptionist said, “Can I validate you?” Mel says, “Yes, tell me how wonderful I am!” making the entire room laugh. It was a dumb joke but he nailed it perfectly.— 🎃 Pumpkin J. Marino 🎃 (@pjmarino1) January 22, 2019
9. Robin Williams was a “wonderful friend.”
Robin Williams was an absolute gem to work with. He gave me a wealth of graphic novels and anime DVDs and was a wonderful friend the entire time. We kept in touch for a few years afterwards too. pic.twitter.com/0qza6lSQAy— Shane Scott-Travis Ⓥ (@ShaneScottravis) January 22, 2019
10. Though Han Solo might travel galaxies, Harrison Ford is incredibly down to earth.
Saw Harrison Ford when he was filming a movie in my hometown when I was a kid. I called out to him (not during a scene) “Mr Ford, I’m a big fan”. He looked over, pointed at me and said “Big fan of yours, too”.— Colin McCormick (@HearMeColin) January 22, 2019
Met Harrison Ford during one of his documentary show. Shook his hand and introduced myself nervously “Hey, my name is Monda.” He replied with a smile, “Hey I’m Harrison”— 🎃Fright Night with Monda🎃 (@mmmonda) January 22, 2019
I know who you are Captain Solo.
Took a photo with him, deff the coolest guy ever. pic.twitter.com/39wihfBshk
11. Muhammad Ali’s drawing skills are just as entertaining as his boxing.
My favorite celebrity encounter: running into Muhammad Ali at the South Bend airport. We chatted some as we waited for our flight and he drew me this picture of him and Frazier in the ring. https://t.co/X1Xc4nO38j pic.twitter.com/cEqGuC9Kd3— Kristin Du Mez (@kkdumez) September 9, 2021
12. Apparently, Mark Hamill is a bit of a joker.
13. Sigourney Weaver is just plain nice.
I met Sigourney Weaver and told her that everybody she played in a movie, I wanted to grow up and be. She was so warm and said “That’s such a nice thing to hear! I’m so glad you came to say hi.”— Elisadeath RIP (@ElisabethRappe) January 22, 2019
14. This picture with Tom Hanks makes us smile.
Tom Hanks. Warm, engaging and such fun. pic.twitter.com/kjt9feHUFb— Spookystones Piccadilly, London 🎃 (@WaterstonesPicc) January 22, 2019
15. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Mr. Rogers!
Met Mr. Rogers on the set of his neighborhood. His warm up included singing hello to Handyman Negri, who sang back. “How are you today?” “Very fine I thank you!” Sat on the piano bench with Johnny Costa. I was a freshman in college but it was like I was also 6 at the same time.— Peter Corless 🌎☮ 💛🍦💉💉🍩 (@PeterCorless) January 22, 2019
These people are sure to remember the heartwarming conversations they had with these celebrities for the rest of their lives, and we won’t forget them anytime soon, either.
