Celebrities are always in the news, but these days it seems like they're in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Following a flood of sexual assault allegations against Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, hundreds of brave women have spoken out against several high profile members of the film industry including directors, producers, actors and comedians. But as this uplifting list of tweets proves, not all celebrities are bad. In fact, some are downright awesome.

People were asked by a Twitter user called @bakkooonn to share positive personal encounters they've had with famous people, and the internet was quick to respond with heartwarming stories about everybody from Freddy Mercury and Robin Williams to Bruce Springsteen and Danny DeVito. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

It's nice to hear about someone who wants to do something nice and doesn't feel the need to brag about it on social media. It still happens whether you report it or not. Humility is really hard to come by these days. God Bless Chris Martin!

She was one of a kind. I recently read about the time a producer sexually assaulted a friend of hers and Fisher sent him a box with a cow's tongue in it! and a note that said "if you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box". Ha! Love her. RIP Carrie Fisher.

This isn’t surprising to hear at all. Robin Williams seemed like a wonderful person. It’s a shame that sometimes the most sensitive, empathetic people don’t seem made to live in this world. 😢

I'm not on twitter but Margaret Cho did this for me when I had gotten laid off very suddenly from my work during the .com crash. Sweetest thing ever.

That's so weird! Same thing happened to us on a DofE walk back in the late 80's, but that time it was Rod Stewart :)

Sinbad flew through DIA in the late 90s quite often and I worked in the United Customer Service terminal. He always called out to me and teased me and made me feel special. He was so nice!

Zachary Quinto talked to me for 10 minutes and then remembered my name and my wife's name when we said goodbye. We were blown away by that.
