50 Fans Talk About The Time They Had An Average, Everyday Conversation With A Famous Celebrity

These people from Ask Reddit had normal, everyday interactions with celebrities, proving they really ARE just like us.

35. Not sure if this counts but when I was 15 I was really into playing Starcraft (being a 3 month old game at the time) on battle.net. I did mostly 3v3 games. After finishing this one particularly epic match (close game, we won), we all got into a chat room to talk about how fun that was. Iirc, one of them says something to the effect of “not sure if you all care but you just beat Ben Affleck.” Of course we all ask him to prove it, so he told us to wait a minute and visit his official website’s message board (benaffleck.com or something like that). He had just made a post in red (red being Ben Affleck himself) about just losing a game of Starcraft.

We briefly chatted with him and that was it.

36. Not me, but my wife. In college she worked as an intern at a nonprofit that was doing some work at a local concert venue, and while she was in the building doing things this older gentleman struck up a conversation with her. He introduced himself as Justin, and she commented about a family member who shares the name so it would be easy to remember. They talked for a while about random things, the kind of work she was doing, her aspirations after leaving college, etc. He asked if she was staying around for the concert afterward, and she replied that she wasn’t a fan of the band and was going to head out as soon as her work there was done. He wished her well and walked off. A short while later someone asked her, “so you and Justin seemed to hit it off, what were you two talking about?”

“Oh, just random stuff, why who is he?”

The lead singer and guitarist for the Moody Blues.”

“…. aaaand I just told him I wasn’t a fan of his work.”
