Being a celebrity has got to be pretty weird. Lots of people recognize you, and may even think they understand you, but you don't know them. And if you achieved a Justin Bieber-like level of fame, getting bothered by fans would become a huge problem. Being famous means having zero privacy, so when a celebrity is approached by a non-celeb, they could be forgiven for attempting to brush the person off. It only makes sense that many stars would prefer to avoid fans and be left alone as much as possible.
But not every celebrity does that. In fact, there are a good number of famous people who are nice to normal people, and who don't seem to react to their fame at all. According to Redditors, these movie stars and musicians go out of their way to engage with fans, or to let staff working venues know they are appreciated. When people tell stories of nice celebrity encounters, they might highlight how unexpectedly normal the person was. Bill Murray, for instance, immediately began cracking jokes. And when it comes to the nicest celebrities, some may surprise you – like Kim Kardashian. Apparently she's a real sweetheart.
These tales of friendly celebrities suggest some stars were great people even before they got famous.
"My cousin took his son to a WWE event for his birthday and then fishing the next day along the river. While they were fishing the Rock appeared out of nowhere, ready to go fishing with his cousin. The 4 of them spent the entire day together, the Rock bought them lunch, hung out. It was an epic experience especially for my cousin's son who just turned 12."

"John Cena was really cool when I met him at a mall thing for my brother years ago. Stayed for 8 hours to meet all the people lined up to see him. This was during his first big fame blow up so I'm sure he was busy. He also does a lot of Make a Wish stuff. Blends into his surroundings easily though."

"Chris Pine is a f*cking gem. I met him at an after party where I used to work, I was an American girl in London. He was there with my friend's girlfriend and the girl he was seeing at the time, but they were off somewhere else.
He heard me speak with an American accent and proceeded to ask me [my] whole life story. We chatted for nearly an hour until some dudes came over to try and sell him on a script."

"I met Willy Nelson briefly when I was 16. I was pouring liquor at an auditorium he was playing at when he walked up, bought a Pepsi and slid a crisp $50 into my front pocket. He winked and said 'to the unsung heroes helping me look good on stage.' Was really cool and I think about it often. :)"
