When you get to meet a celebrity, you obviously expect something amazing to happen or have an epic conversation with them. Something to share with your friends after the meeting and look back on your entire life! Well, that’s not always the case. Some celebrity encounters are just… super boring.
It’s so easy for us to look up to people we see on the screen that we tend to forget that they are only humans! They do various mundane things, just like the rest of us.
A Twitter user named John Moe decided to ask Twitter users about their most insignificant and dull encounters with celebrities and he got plenty of responses!
Your most boring, mundane, inconsequential celebrity encounter. Go!

If you feel like reading about some of the most boring meetings ever, here is your chance.
Celebrities drive. Nothing surprising about that.
I let The Edge reverse out of an office building driveway in Ballsbridge, he waved. https://t.co/MedhWAGRrq

They also need to eat. And sometimes you can even see them twice at the same place.
I saw Dave Navarro at a vegan restaurant and then saw him a few months later at the same restaurant https://t.co/RAryVZJPdu

Being all nonchalant when talking to a famous actor is quite easy when you don’t recognize him as someone you could have seen on TV. This makes the conversation much easier!
I talked to Martin Freeman for about 15 minutes in a queue in the dry cleaners because i recognised him and thought he played hockey with my brother. He chatted the whole time and never once let on who he was. https://t.co/ViLzKSJo5a

Celebs can even give you directions when you are searching for the restroom. How nice!
I asked Winona Ryder where the bathroom was, and she very kindly said it was “down the hall.” https://t.co/1eHsOP9Pgx

They also buy various items and take their change. If you imagine celebrities leaving change whenever they pay, that’s not actually the case.
When I was working at the Mobil station in Woodstock, NY, Ethan Hawke came in and bought a pack of Juicy Fruit. “.75 cents” i said. He gave me a 5 dollar bill. I gave him four dollars and 25 cents. He said “Thanks.” https://t.co/LIgbNPrfI1

Some celebrities will even respond to your comments on their appearance.
Tom Selleck came into the candy store I worked in to buy a milkshake and I said “you’re tall” and he said “your hair’s pink” then he left https://t.co/7K7aQkAbqH

Also, celebs love their pets and need to feed them.
Back when I worked at a grocery store just off Mulholland, sold John Lovitz almost an entire shelf of cat food. https://t.co/O4VdaomGZV

They are only humans, don’t forget about that. Things happen.

Sometimes celebs ask the most random questions. And the answer to this one is – no.
I was in line behind one of the Backstreet Boys at an airport McDonald’s and he asked me if 20 was too many nuggets. https://t.co/9t9Vk0P6FG

Everyone needs cash and your favorite actors are not an exception.
I used an ATM shortly after Liv Tyler https://t.co/bYDvlaC0EN

Some celebs can’t miss out on a chance to pet a cute dog. And we totally understand the reaction.
One time Mika Kunis tried to play with a dog I was walking when we were in line at a cafe, and I (not recognizing her at firs) said, “I’m actually trying to get her to calm down.” She was very apologetic.

Not all celebs feel entitled. Some of them are polite and follow the etiquette. Now that’s what we want to hear!
mostly empty bar at a concert venue. David Byrne suddenly appeared next to me. Bartender came over to take David's order. David turned to me. "Did you order?" "Yeah. I ordered from the other guy," I said. "Ok," said David Byrne. https://t.co/vvGW0PeLQ5

When celebrities get together, it’s not always profound discussions about their upcoming projects. They also ask each other boring questions.
I once asked a random guy for directions. He turned around. It was Will Ferrell. He gave me directions. They were correct. https://t.co/hG3Zppd7cH

Some of them don’t freak out when they are denied access to certain establishments.
I denied Willem Defoe entrance to a bar on New Years Eve since we were closed for a private party. He politely understood.

They also need to buy devices from time to time.

Sometimes they really don’t want to talk to anyone and take photos. How can you blame them?
Ewan McGregor outside LAX with @rob_pearson86 :
Rob: Ewan McGregor is behind you.
Me, turning to face Ewan, 4 feet away: Oh yeah.
Ewan's eyes: DON'T SAY A FUCKING WORD TO ME. https://t.co/4ypyw6KK8A

A pen? Who has space in his bag to carry that?
At hotel bar in Dublin, old guy at next table is angrily talking into mobile phone and says: “I need a to write that down”. Pats pockets – no pen. I lend him mine. He returns it after writing something down, mutters thanks, leaves bar. Van Morrison. https://t.co/VBEd0kt6Ll

Once again, they can be polite and courteous.

It’s not just the elixirs of youth, some celebs drink tea, too.
Sold Sienna Miller a teapot.

There are times when they talk to themselves while looking in the mirror. Everyone needs encouragement once in a while!
I once said “showtime” to my own mirror does that count https://t.co/gCkmi0EJZX

They also admit that their lives are not all fun and filled with excitement.
Does most of my childhood count? https://t.co/PWoVtSZF9r

Now that’s plenty of proof that celebrities are just normal human beings.
