21 People Confess Their Worst Experiences Meeting A Celebrity


James Franco asked a friend of mine to have sex, she said no. Apparently he’s a real sleaze and she was 19, he was about 34.


I had to drive Neve Campbell to set for a film I was working on – I had never driven through Manhattan before, proceeded to take the worst route through the busiest traffic, almost got hit by multiple cabs (she screamed), drove up on the curb, got obviously lost, and dropped her off late. As she left she said I don’t know WHY they asked YOU to drive me, and I was like Yeah me either.


I met Rihanna while I was stationed in Japan on the US George Washington (aircraft carrier). I was actually assigned to follow her group around, take pictures and provide assistance for anything. She wasn’t miserable really, just sort of disinterested and snobby the whole time and blatantly ignored the poor officer who was trying to lead her tour and give her the info on the ship. She didn’t even perform for us so I have no idea why she was there. She signed autographs lazily on the mess decks for about 30 minutes and then left. Later she tweeted about how dirty our ship was.


Deadmau5 once gave me a solid cussing when I refused to let him into the vip area at a major festival. Why? He was carrying a lot of expensive photography equipment, wanting to enter a restricted area without an escort from the press team. Also, I didn’t know what he looked like without the helmet. So most of the cussing was in the line of “don’t you know who the fuck I am?!” and “I’m your motherfucking headline artist.”
