Ice T. And 24 Other Celebrities Who Are Ridiculously Nice To Fans.
People on Reddit were asked: " Who is the nicest celebrity you've ever met?" These are some of the best answers.
sisters bags and helped carry them to our car.
I learned a good lesson that day; never help anyone because it's easier to let a celebrity do it for you.
2/25 Ryan Gosling paid for my parking on Hollywood Blvd once. We had parked in the same parking lot. He was leaving and we were arriving and I struck up a convo with him real quick.
He asked where I was from and why I was there/who I was with. (Spring Break, 9 friends, 2 cars). And he was like "Oh you guys have 40 bucks to drop on just parking? Must be loaded" I chuckled and was about to say something back and he just says the coolest thing to me.
"Don't worry about parking today man, I'll cover you all for the weekend. Have a fun spring break!"
It was so cool. He is JUST as nice in real life as you think he would be.
3/25 I was at a shoe store in Cleveland about 4 years ago... I think it was Finishline. And I'm looking at the new Lebron shoes, (mind you that I'm only 18 at the time), and a huge shadow appears over me. And I turn around, and it was Lebron James standing there. He smiled and said "You want my new shoes." I stumbled over my words for a few seconds then said yes I think I'm going to buy a pair right now. He then asked me my size, went up to the front desk and bought me 2 pairs. 1 he signed, and he said the other was for me to practice my post moves in. One of the best days of my life.
4/25 Morgan Freeman. We're both from the same state (Mississippi). I was having lunch near his home town when I noticed him. He took the time to talk to me, despite my epic fan grin, and paid for my food before he left. Best lunch I ever had.
So in conclusion I met God.
5/25 Working in a magic shop in my 20s, Muhammad Ali came in. My boss (huge Ali fan from back in the day) was visibly staggered. I guess Ali was his idol when he was younger.
Ali hung around for a couple hours, we did some tricks for him, he did some for us (pretty good, too, considering his hands trembled and he didn't talk). He was totally beyond cool with us taking some pictures (he posed my boss punching him in the chin), and wrote a "thank you" post card to us a week or so later...
...he signed it "Cassius Clay, oops, I mean Muhammad Ali"
6/25 Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. He was walking out of the restroom at my work place. I commented, "I smelled what The Rock was cooking" as we passed each other in the hallway. He turned back and gave me the People's Eyebrow. Actually got to chat with him a little while, and led him to the edit bay that he was looking for.
7/25 Believe it or not, Marilyn Manson. This was 2000. My brother had cancer and got the chance to meet him. He brought my brother all sorts of memorabilia and sat and chatted to him for a few hours, playing TV games with him, playing guitar, even reading Beano comics. All in the comfort of my own home. My brother passed away 3 weeks later and was in his M.M t-shirt when he passed.
8/25 When Joe Biden was a Senator I accidentally walked in on him while he was in the stall of an Amtrak bathroom. He sat there awkwardly for a second and then said "I'd shake your hand but I don't think either of us want that."
9/25 So you know Free Willy? Yeah I met him when I was a kid... I got to feed him fish and pet his head... even rubbed his tongue and he was super nice and didn't bite my arm off.
Keiko, what a great guy. Seriously, they say he is a killer whale and he spared me... such an outstanding orca.
10/25 I met Margaret Thatcher, briefly, and was really surprised at how polite she was in person. She only left shallow claw marks when shaking my hand, and latched onto my neck in the gentlest of fashions when she had to feed halfway through the conference we were attending.
11/25 Lady Gaga. I sat down with her and had someone take a picture of us. I complimented her on her show but I was overall super nervous and flustered. I quickly got up to walk away but she grabbed me, told me to sit down, and demanded we talk some more and take a few more pictures. It was glorious.
12/25 My girlfriend's mom lives in a house on a private island off of Miami Beach. The girlfriend and I are down there on vacation last summer and I am fixing the tail light on her mom's car when I see Lenny Kravitz walking up with his little dog. He says something along the lines of, "I have never seen you around before." I said I was visiting with my girlfriend. I will never forget this: "Tall chick?" "Ya." Then he got this big smile on his face and said, "right on." He high fives me and walked away. At that moment I knew what cool was and I knew I would never have it.
13/25 Adam Savage of the Mythbusters. Very nice and personable, and that child like excitement he has on the show is definitely not an act.
14/25 Russell Brand was an absolute peach to me. I interviewed him for my blog and he stopped mid-sentence and said, "You're beautiful you know that, right?"...and my favorite compliment from anyone, "You've got lovely cheeks!"
15/25 Paris Hilton. My car broke down on an autobahn in Germany. Managed to coast to sort of layby thing with a burger van and toilets in it. I was in a bad state because I can't speak any German, my phone had no credit and I didn't have my breakdown details with me so I had no idea what to do.
I unsuccessfully asked the guy in the burger van for help and he apparently didn't speak English so rather pathetically I started to cry. Then this big old American guy appeared and offered me a cup of tea in his motor home (it wasn't proper tea but that's besides the point). In the van was another guy and friggin Paris Hilton! I kid ye not.
She was sweet and made me a sandwich and gave me a hug then proceeded to talk to me for 30mins about some old radio bits she'd bought in some show in Freidrichshafen. I didn't understand most of it. She said that when she wasn't working she liked to drive about Europe going to radio and air shows as if she put a hat on nobody ever recognized her.
Then they towed me to a garage at about 40km per hour (scary stuff on the autobahn). Oh yeah and she sat in my car and asked if it was ok before she smoked.
16/25 Kourtney Kardashian. She was pregnant with her first kid when she came into the homeless shelter I was volunteering at. No cameras, she was there by herself to play with the kids, even stayed after to help me sweep and clean.
17/24 I bought Kevin Smith a beer at a airport lounge, we wound up shooting the [stuff], after a while he bought a piece of pie and we split it.
18/24 I played paintball with Robin Williams and made it a point to run straight to his bunker and shoot him right in the face, he was going to be my prize. He was a good sport about it and spent the rest of the day giving me a running commentary/riff track on the game as it progressed. Really nice guy considering I just shot paint into his face.
19/24 Keanu Reeves. Was at coffee shop and no place to sit, a man said please join me here. I sat and realized it was him and talked about comic books for about 30 min. Normal as can be.
20/25 Paul Rudd. I was at a Decemberists concert, and in between opening acts, I headed to the women's bathrooms. Paul Rudd was standing outside of the bathroom, obviously waiting for someone. Do you ever have one of those moments where your mouth just says words without the permission of your brain? Yeah. As I passed by Paul Rudd, I did finger guns at him and said, "Hanging out in front of the women's bathroom? That's a good way to pick up women" and kept walking. I could hear him laughing as I entered the bathroom. I was torn between being pleased that I made him laugh and being mortified that I was such a dork. When I left the bathroom, he saw me and started laughing again, so I went over to him and said I had no idea why I said that. So we had a little laugh together, and had a nice little chat. He was a really nice guy, not even as a celebrity, just as a cool dude.
Although thinking back on it, no woman came out of the bathroom and came over to him while he was waiting, so I still don't know why he was hanging around outside of the bathrooms. Maybe he WAS picking up women.
21/25 I went on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney with Tony Hawk. He had given me his autograph earlier at a convention and we just happened to be in line together. He was really cool.
22/25 Don Cheadle. Gave me a tip on some salmon to buy at Whole Foods.
23/25 Chuck Norris- tipped me $150 bucks... on a $30 bill. Was right around the time the Chuck Norris jokes were becoming popular. While I was taking the order I overheard a coworker make one of the jokes, saw Chuck;s face just sorta tighten like "not this [stuff]f again" and I politely excused myself, took the other employee aside and told them to leave him... alone so he could eat.
24/25 When I was a kid, like 2 or 3, I often saw an old man at a grocery store with a small, white dog. The man came up to me one day and handed me a basket. He said I could walk the dog while filling up the basket with candy (which he then later paid for). This became the routine whenever I saw that man at the grocery store. Walk dog, get candy.
That man was Gene Wilder. I got candy from Willy Wonka himself.
25/25 A few years back, my grandmother (then about 75 years old) and Adam Sandler's father had back-to-back chemo appointments in Boston. Every week she would see Adam Sandler, in sunglasses, come with his father to chemo. Her cancer was stage III at this point and she was under a great deal of stress, and honest to God, Adam Sandler used to rub her back and ease her nerves before going in. Unfortunately his Dad died that year, but my grandmother made a full recovery. Never really liked Adam Sandler's stuff that much, but the way he treated my sick, elderly grandmother was incredible.
