We all would like to know what kind of people celebrities are in real life. Are some of them really that over the top in every aspect of their lives? And are others as down to earth as they seem on TV or on social media? Probably the worst-case scenario is when you realize that the celebrities you looked up to turned out to be not as nice or even really rude or snobby.

There are certainly stories of unpleasant encounters with well-known people. However, there are many stories of heartwarming encounters too. Twitter user @therecordon was interested to know who was the nicest celebrity people have ever met.

There are more than 10k responses in this thread and Bored Panda collected some of the best stories. Find out which celebrities are actually lovely people in real life!

It is so nice to know that many big celebrities whose names are known all over the world have still managed to remain just good human beings. From these stories, we see that they have not been corrupted by the amounts of money they've earned and the permanent spotlight has not made them think that they are better than others. Or it’s just that they were like that all along, if you look from the point of view that money makes good people even better and bad people worse.

Whether we like to admit it or not, famous people live different lives than ours and we don’t really know what it's like to always be observed, talked about, to have such a huge amount of people admiring them. Fame and money can get to one’s head, make them think that they deserve it more than others do, and that someone that doesn’t reach their status isn’t worth their time. At least that’s the stereotype.

But the celebrities on this list seem like cool people. Looks like they’re not taking their fame for granted and appreciate their fans for the support. Some people shared that the famous people they’ve met had a long working day, but still agreed to a photo, while others shared how polite and chatty some celebrities were, making them feel like they were talking with a friend.

He was once a New York Firefighter and retired in the 1990's. On 9/11 he showed up at his old firehouse and went down with them to ground zero and helped people. He had no insurance for this like the firefighters did if anything had happened to him, he had not been active for a several years at that point, and took those risks to help others, and serve with his old firehouse. Till today he raises money for 9/11 workers and has admitted to having health problems from being at ground zero, but is proud of what he did and says he would do it again. The best part of this story, he never told anyone, a NY Post photographer was snapping pics of firefighters that day and realized he had Buscemi in one of them and the NY Post made the pic famous.

This isn’t the first time that people have joined a conversation highlighting the nice encounters instead of the bad ones. They always attract attention and people are always willing to tell the good stories. Bored Panda also wanted to spread some positivity and already has a couple of articles where we gathered the best answers from Reddit. After finishing reading the best answers from this Twitter thread, go and check out this older article that people really loved and a more recent follow-up.

Steve Martin is awesome!

I got to meet him while staffing a press event at the Art Gallery of Ontario and even though he didn't have to, he literally went around to shake hands and introduce himself to everyone. Me being flustered, when he said "Hi I'm Steve" all I could manage was "I know" and he laughed and went "that should have been obvious, shouldn't it?"

Steve Martin is in his 70s and doesn’t look like he’s aged in 30 years. He’s looked 70 for 30 years.

Steve Martin is one of the rare few comedians who could've also been a model, he was so handsome in his youth. I suspect now that was his inner beauty shining through.
