19 People That Accidentally Met a Celebrity and Took a Photo

In order to meet a celebrity or a movie star, you don’t have to visit red carpet events or other places that are hard to get access to. You can accidentally meet someone famous at an airport, a cafe, a stadium, or even on public transport. Of course, at such moments, we don’t waste the opportunity to take a selfie with a star.

Here are 19 people who were lucky enough to meet a famous person. We at Bright Side are happy that some celebrities respect their fans and agree to take a picture with them.

“I met this cool guy on a 5-hour plane ride. I’d love to talk to him but I don’t want to bother him.”

“Jeff Goldblum stopped my brother in LAX a few years back after commenting that they looked a lot alike. He was thrilled, to say the least.”

“My buddy met this strange dude wearing a dinosaur shirt and zebra pants.”

“My grandma (who’s 99 years old) met her favorite actor today!”

My grandma was a librarian in Mt. Vernon’s NY Public Library for 50 years. If you’ve ever met her, she will tell you the story of how she gave Denzel Washington his first library card and how he was the cutest thing and how wonderful he was. I have heard this story easily 300+ times in my life. The women at her nursing home wanted to do something special so they tried to contact Denzel and get him to come or call, and he ended up calling and talking to her on her birthday. On the call, he said he would be in our city in December and would stop by and voila, here he is! He was so nice and caring, laughing with her and holding her hand like he was old friends with her. He teared up a few times seeing the love and respect she showed for him. © metalgamer
