These People Encountered Celebrities in Bizarrely Normal Places


I was leaving a movie theater in NYC after seeing the Charlie’s Angels movie. Was trying to hail a cab with my mom. A cab pulls up and out walks Drew Barrymore and Tom Green. We stared dumbfounded, especially because we literally just saw them in the movie we watched. We got into their cab and the seats were nice and warm.


I bumped into Regis Philban at a CVS in the disposable razor aisle as he was eating an ice cream cone.


Met keanu Reeves at a bodega in the West village (this was around that sad keanu/meme of him eating a sandwich on that bench time). He was tossing the Gatorade he was going to buy and dropped it and picked it up. Didn’t pay much attention until then which is when he got in line behind us (me and the people I was with at the time). I turned to my friend and said “fuck, this guy looks just like keanu Reeves” and he’s like “Yea, cuz that’s keanu Reeves”. Keanu says “hey, how’s it going”.


My grandma met Adam Sandler in an elevator in Mexico. She didn’t speak English but Adam was kind enough to try and speak Spanish with her. She was delighted, she loves his movies.
