In my experience, meeting a celebrity can go one of three ways. First, they could be a total d%ck and you can never watch anything they do ever again. Second, they can be perfunctory and polite but not wow you in any way.

Third, they can be unexpectedly delightful and earn another avid fan for life.

These 13 encounters fall into the last category, and now that people have shard them online, you can benefit, too!
