People Are Sharing Their Most Bizarre Celebrity Encounters, And It’s Truly Marvelous

Meeting a celebrity is like seeing a dog walk on two legs—it’s a rare siting. When we run into celebrities, many of us don’t know how to act. We turn into big doofuses, tripping over our own words. But, sometimes, it happens so unexpectedly that we don’t even do anything to embarrass ourselves—and instead, we just stop dead in our tracks and wonder: “is this even real?”

Recently, journalist and filmmaker Michael Segalov asked Twitter users to share the most “surreal encounter they’ve had with someone famous,” and, even shared one of his own. He said that while riding the bucking bronco in Liverpool, he saw Hugh Grant looking at him—who proceeded to stick his tongue out and shrug.

People immediately began to send in their surreal stories of seeing celebrities in-person and it’s all too real.
