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.
