We’ve all read, heard or had experiences with celebrities that were NOT so nice…so how about the ones who were great?  This Reddit thread had stories from 27 people who had awesome encounters with famous people.

A few highlights:

Nick Jonas is extremely soft spoken and really kind. He called ahead to the restaurant I worked in at the time to book a table for his family— him, his parents, both grandmothers, younger brother, and one of his grandfathers. His younger brother was moving in to college and Nick was in town for a show, so he took them to brunch. He was incredibly kind to the staff, tipped really well, and was adorably teasing Frankie about being the kid their parents would be most proud of— Frankie is the only one of the four Jonas brothers to go to college. – TheMillennialDiaries

My sisters met Sofie Turner, I had just left to go get something to eat and she apparently lined up to do zip lining behind them. They were so amazed they met Sansa Stark and showed me the picture. I’d heard she was in town filming and that she as with Joe Jonas and realised from the picture angle someone else took it. Asked them who took it? Some dude she was with…. I laughed so hard I cried when I explained it was Joe Jonas and they felt so embarrassed and shook. They said he took it like a champ and took thier picture with her and then small chatted a bit about stuff to visit in the city. – Jade0Knight

Also met Matthew McConaughey at a beach bar I worked at. He came in with bongos and sunglasses at 8pm on our busiest night and sat alone in a corner. When the drunk guy next time home turned finally and asked “Arent you the McConaughey guy?” He laughed and bought everyone drinks. Then proceeded to drink some more, took his shirt off at some point and played bongos with band. – Jade0Knight

Dave Chappelle and his family live a few miles from where I went to college, and he and I frequented the same Starbucks. I ran into him about ten times. One day he sat with me for about 45 minutes and talked about screenwriting. It was amazing. He’s as down to earth as his stage persona suggests, and it’s no wonder he opted to raise his family away from L.A. – cwills815

Having met Hugh Laurie in person, I can confidently state that he is one of the nicest and most humble celebrities out there. Not only is he completely happy to interact with his fans, but he also does so in a way that makes each and every one of them feel like they’re a friend. He remembers names and personal details with amazing accuracy, and he makes each conversation seem like it’s an extension of a treasured (and ongoing) dialogue. Add to that the fact that the man is outwardly hilarious, and you’ve got a recipe for a genuinely great guy. – RamsesThePigeon

Kelly Clarkson. The southern charm thing isn’t an act. Coincidentally I also met the meanest celebrity the same night, Avril Lavigne. Shout out to Blink-182 as well, in my short time working with celebrities, they were the only ones I was actually a huge fan of and they were super cool as well, Mark Hoppus especially.  – Ryguy55

Tom Hanks. I worked at Disneyland in the late 90’s and I saw him giving a tour to a group of about 25 kids. He was leading the tour and the Disney tour guide was just tagging along so I could tell he’d done this many times before. – GenXer1981
