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.

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.
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.
