    People Are Sharing Which Celebs They Met Who Are Actually Nice And It's Pretty Surprising

    Taylor and Kanye are both in here.

    On Tuesday, a Reddit thread asked people, "Which celebrity is genuinely nice?" and people shared their stories of meeting celebs. Here are some of the their submissions.

    1. Matthew McConaughey:

    "I was a TSA employee. Genuinely nice, we had a great chat for about 15 minutes. After he was set, we shook hands, and he had his kids all thank me individually and shake my hand as well." — tst3c

    2. John Cena:

    "John Cena was really cool when I met him at a mall thing. Stayed for eight hours to meet all the people lined up to see him." — SpurlieBird

    3. Taylor Swift:

    "I wasn't even a fan until I met her. I went to a concert with my friend, who is a super fan, We got picked for the T-Party, which is like a backstage party after the show. She came around to everyone there and spent a few minutes talking with each person. You can tell she genuinely cares about her fans." — princessblowhole

    4. Sarah Jessica Parker:

    "Ran into her in a deli in NYC. My work partner and I were in uniform on break. We are city workers. She started a conversation with us. Even signed stuff for us. I've met quite a few celebs in NYC. She was by far the nicest. — Ant95ny

    5. Mike Tyson:

    "Through a strange series of events, my dad became friends with Mike Tyson for a few months. This was fairly recent. He came to our house a few times, and we got to go to his house once. I would describe him as humble, funny, and genuinely nice. He never wanted to talk about his own boxing career." —WenttoMikeTysonsHous

    6. The Rock:

    "My cousin took his son to a WWE event for his birthday and then fishing the next day along the river. While they were fishing, The Rock appeared out of nowhere, ready to go fishing with his cousin. The four of them spent the entire day together, the Rock bought them lunch, hung out. It was an epic experience especially for my cousin's son who just turned 12." — Earimo

    7. Steven Tyler

    "I walked by this linen clothing store that was blasting music at around 10 p.m., and he was the only one inside, dancing and talking to the employees. He came outside to sign an autograph for two girls and as he turned to go back in we made eye contact. All I could think to say was 'Y-y-you're Steven Tyler!' and he just replies 'Fuck yeah I am!' I asked him for a picture and he said 'Hell yeah,' and pulled my friends and I close and snapped one." — Lucan8ter

    8. Bill Murray:

    "I met Bill Murray once and asked for a picture. He responded with, 'Who the hell do you think you are?' I kind of had a shocked look on his face, and he finally told me he was kidding, gave me a handshake/bro-hug, and took a picture with me." — iStankonia

    9. Tom Hanks:

    "My friend is an Uber driver and told me one day that he was sitting at a stoplight and saw Tom standing on the sidewalk. For some reason he decided to shout "Hi, Forrest!" at him, and Tom gave him this wave": — strengbt

    Paramount

    10. Willy Nelson:

    "I met Willy Nelson briefly when I was 16. I was pouring liquor at an auditorium he was playing at when he walked up, bought a pepsi and slid a crisp $50 into my front pocket. He winked and said "to the unsung heroes helping me look good on stage." — platyviolence

    11. Luke Wilson:

    "I met him by accident as I was running to catch my ride after my shift, around 3 a.m. He was coming down the hallway at the same time as me, but neither of us were paying attention. I ran smack into the middle of his chest and fell on my butt. He was incredibly drunk but super friendly and apologetic as he helped me up." — Almost_a_Full_Moon

    12. Whoopi Goldberg:

    My wife met her in London, having a smoke outside the hotel we were attending a wedding at. After sharing a smoke together, Whoopi came in and had photos with the bride and groom (my wife's sister and brother-in-law), finally uttering the line of the day 'It wouldn't be a Jewish wedding without a Goldberg.'" — ringo_24601

    13. Nick Offerman:

    "When I met Nick Offerman, he was nothing but pleasant, funny and polite. We had a little chat about Toronto (where I live and where I met him). He mentioned his wife and he loved Toronto." — Flimflamsam

    14. Hayley Williams:

    "I met Hayley Williams a couple of years ago. She was lovely." — skyepilotgurl

    15. Alec Baldwin:

    "Alec Baldwin was really super nice when I met him at a Hollywood Hampton's baseball fundraiser. He gave my sister and I his autograph and was warm and open." — newsdaylaura18

    16. Kanye West:

    I was at a store, buying shoes. Next thing I know Kanye walks through the doors. I'm in disbelief, I'm stanning out and going crazy inside, but I play it cool. I continue picking out shoes and glancing over as Kanye AND Kim are looking at coats and some shirts. He glances over at me and nods his head. At this point, I was glad to be acknowledged.

    Next thing I know I hear footsteps and a 'Hey, man.' It's Kanye. I just said 'Hi, holy shit, I cant believe this is happening". Kanye laughed and we talked for about a minute when he called Kim over. We all talked for about 10 minutes. He was really interested in what I was doing with my life and my interests. He asked if I was going to his show the next day and when I said yes,yeah he was so excited to explain the intricate details of the show and his passion for preforming. Without me asking he said we should take a picture and he had Kim take the one of me and him. He said it was really nice talking to me and WE BRO HUGGED! He was incredibly interesting to talk to, and he is one of the nicest and genuine people I have spoken to. Here is the picture." — Richard1018
