You know the fantasy where you meet your favourite celebrity and they immediately realise you’re not like everyone else and fall in love with you?
And then you move into their Hollywood mansion and reenact that “Big mistake, HUGE” scene from Pretty Woman?
And then you both go on Late Night with Seth Meyers and you’re hilarious and relaxed and no one can believe you haven’t been on TV before?
But then they dump you for their co-star and you turn into Britney circa 2007?
Yeah… that’s probably not going to happen.
If you do meet your favourite celebrity, they’ll probably just push past you on the train or burp behind you in line at McDonalds.
You see, celebrities can be very boring and mundane and wear trackie dacks too.
I know this because people are sharing the most mundane encounters they’ve had with celebrities on Twitter and boy is it a snoozefest.
It’s also quite hilarious.
Anyhoo, here’s a bunch of them:
Your most boring, mundane, inconsequential celebrity encounter. Go!

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

In NYC getting on the subway, doors open and I’m face-to-face with Robert Pattinson. Had places to go, so he stepped off and I got on. My little sis (16 at the time) standing behind me, double-takes like, “Really?” He just shrugs, “Yeah” and the doors close. https://t.co/aIkkgEIft6

I happened to be sitting next to Evan Rachel Wood at a karaoke bar in NYC and I turned to her and said “has anyone ever told you you look like Evan Rachel Wood?” She laughed and said, “that is what people call me…” and then her song came up and I died. https://t.co/8ceFrHxP76

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.

I unintentionally followed Robert Pattinson into the bathroom once. He held the door for me. We peed quietly yet in sync with each other. No words were exchanged. I still think about it to this day. https://t.co/zVj8rxE8iR

my friend and I were in line at an empty Starbucks when Tim Allen walked in. He went to the front of the line instead of the back and awkwardly inched past us to get in back. My order was a little complicated. I could see Tim’s foot tapping impatiently. It was very quiet & weird https://t.co/a2kfR3Q8G2

I was at a stop sign, looked to my left and next to me was Colin Farrell. Made eye contact. I nodded to him, he did it back. He drove away. https://t.co/nCcYnroWq0

Intermission at a play in London. Man bumps into me. I turn to look up at him. Alan Rickman.
He apologized. I said “no worries”. https://t.co/d3y7ksLDnC

I was trying to take a picture of the piranhas at the Central Park Zoo and right before I clicked, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles stepped next to me and ruined my picture with a reflection of their legs. https://t.co/Ynkf4u6ZoG
