It's rare in Hollywood to hear about celebrities living up to the hype. Actors spend their days portraying characters that are larger than life and, as anyone would expect, at the end of the day they're just normal people. However, one franchise that seems to cast actors that are just as heroic as their on-screen counterparts is the MCU. It seems like each and every actor is super down-to-earth, and not to mention hilarious. (Always a winning combo.) Check out these heartwarming Reddit recollections of MCU fan encounters and vote up your favorites!
From Redditor u/IwishIwasTegmark:
I met Scarlett Johansson through a friend who works as a hairstylist in Hollywood. She was nice, made small talk with me and then let me take a picture.Wholesome moment?
From Redditor u/eyeslikedeadgrass:
I met Chris Hemsworth last year at the restaurant I worked at. I often joked that I moved to Australia to find him and then one day, all of the sudden, he’s in my restaurant walking up to the host stand. I was so horrified by my own normalcy that I could barely look up at him (he’s so tall). I tried to seat him and his wife at a table in my section but he politely asked to be moved to a quieter area. While I was slightly disappointed that he wouldn’t be sitting in my section, I awkwardly smiled on and directed them to a more secluded section. He and his wife couldn’t decide which table so I made some lame joke about sitting at two separate tables and throwing the food at each other (this was a 6 star resort restaurant, boss did not like hearing that comment). They sat, I put a napkin on his lap, almost s*** myself, and their dinner went smoothly. The end.Wholesome moment?

I met Karl Urban in the vendor hall at DragonCon (2014). I shook his hand and he called me "dude." It was a good time.Wholesome moment?

From Redditor u/captzakksparrow:
They were filming the first season of Luke Cage next to the Starbucks I worked at at the time and Mike Colter came in. They were very secretive about the whole thing but I called him out on being Luke Cage. He wouldn't let me take a picture with him because he was in costume, but he was extremely nice and down to earth. Very tall as well... I'm 5'8" and felt like a child next to him.Wholesome moment?
