Sometimes you get to meet your heroes and they're even nicer than you could have hoped!

I saw him sitting in a cafe with his son. Extremely nice, I waited until they got up to leave before I went and asked if I could get an autograph for my mom (who’s a huge fan). He asked me a few questions about her and wrote a quite nice autograph, For her. He asked if I wanted one as well and I told him that meeting him was more than enough.
I had told him where she worked and he went in the next day and made a point to stop and chat with her. Truly a class act.Sweet celebrity story?

Steve Irwin hands down, I've met a few musicians and athletes who have been nice but none were as nice as Steve. I met him in an elevator at a hotel and I walked in soaking wet after swimming in the pool. I was only 11 and I was in awe that I was in an elevator with Steve Irwin. Straight away he starts a conversation with me, asks me what my name is, where I'm from and if there were any crocs in the pool and if I see any at the hotel to come find him. He then starts talking to the hotel worker who was in the elevator with us and staring at Steve the whole time. That interaction with him still makes me ridiculously happy whenever I think about it.Sweet celebrity story?

I'm not a big HP fan, but one of my friends is, so we went to see his show Endgame in London a few months ago, and waited in the lobby after the show ended (which was the equivalent of waiting by the stage door). He came out and spoke to every single person who wanted to talk to him, which was an honestly enormous number of people, for hours. Instead of quickly taking a photo and signing a playbill for each person, he showed genuine curiosity about the people he met, asked questions, made conversation, and made everyone feel like they mattered. This was at night after the show had ended, and I'm sure he was tired, yet he was still such a charming and genuinely caring guy to each person. I was a bit blown away. I wasn't much of a Daniel Radcliffe fan before this, but am now.Sweet celebrity story?

Nick Offerman. He came into my cafe and I tried to play it really cool and not bother him lol. When he was getting up to leave I awkwardly said how much I enjoyed his book on woodworking and he looked so genuinely surprised. Introduced himself to me, shook my hand, asked my name. He gave me some woodworking tips and went on his way. I ended up seeing him again at an event and he remembered me and my name. He's a genuinely kind and humble person who is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about what he does. 10/10 would like him to adopt me.Sweet celebrity story?
