From a young age, everyone has their favourite celebrities, whether they be television and movie actors, musicians, directors, reality TV personalities, gamers or online personalities.
A common goal of most people is to meet these public figures they hold in such high esteem. With events like meet and greets, meetups and pop culture conventions, these encounters with your favourite celebrities are more and more possible than ever. This sometimes results in great stories and deeply personal moments that are remembered and retold for many years.
One Twitter user asks for people's most surreal encounters with someone famous. Here are some of the responses from people who had some brilliant encounters with their favorite public figures.
I'll leave you with a short story of my own. I was at a comic convention in Sydney, Australia. I was really excited to meet one of the guests, Brianna Hildebrand (who played 'Negasonic Teenage Warhead' in the Deadpool films). Before going to the con that day, I went to the closest flower store and bought a single rose for her. When i got to the front of the autograph line to meet her I handed her the rose. She seemed to like it. Not a chance meeting like these but there you are.
