If you were to go somewhere to intentionally see a celebrity, where would you go? Probably to expensive hotels, restaurants, and shops, because they’re rich, wouldn’t they be where rich people go?
Well, that’s not the case for all of them. We tend to forget that celebrities are human beings who just happen to be in the public eye. It’s easy to forget since they are idolized and appear frequently on our tv screens.
So when you see a celebrity in a normal setting, it tends to throw you a little bit. You do a double take, and initially think it’s just their average Joe doppelganger. Then you realize.. yes, that is Owen Wilson playing pinball. Or, who is that strange man petting my dog? Wait.. is that James Franco? Yeah.. why yes, yes it is.
Seeing a celebrity out in public is like seeing a dog walk on it’s hind legs. It’s just f*cking weird, and you are partially excited, partially confused and uncomfortable. Like.. IS THIS REAL LIFE?! You have to keep telling yourself that they’re just people, treat them like you would anyone else. Well… kudos to the people that can do that.
