We all know deep down that the celebrities we enjoy watching perform might not be what they seem when they’re behind closed doors. The last several years have taught us all the hard lesson of not getting too invested in anyone, since you really never know what “shocking” news is going to come out next.
These 15 people know this, sure, but they’re really hoping these particular celebrities are exactly what they seem.
15. No one tell us otherwise.
Colin Firth… He is a sweet angel in my mind.
14. Your favorite grandpa.
Sir David Attenborough
I’ve seen him talk live. He’s a funny, little bit dirty, witty old man.
Just like your favourite grandpa.
13. Either way, really.
Steve Irwin (if he were still with us)
Imagine it. Steve f**kin’ Irwin, didn’t give a shit about nature, he just wanted to get on tv and make cash.
I’d off myself, right here, right now.
Have you ever seen that interview of him saying that he just wants to use whatever wealth he accumulates to help animals? He is literally the best person to ever walk this earth. Such a pure motherf**ker. I’d love to have met him.
12. He’ll never believe it.
Terry Pratchett. The greatest teacher I ever had. The man who remotely looked after me when my dear, dear mother was too sick to. The source of wisdom to children and adults alike. The wise, kind, wonderful ‘old’ man who was taken from us too young, the only person DEATH himself would be intimidated by meeting. The legend and weaver of legends.
It would never happen. If it did, I would have to reconsider my refusal to be a misanthrope because true goodness exists. But it won’t. Never.
11. A true 180.
Robert Downey Jr
Tom Holland said that on set RDJr would have everyone’s name memorized the first time he met them and would make it a point to say hi to everyone. Also his attitude is just like Tony Stark but less arrogant.
10. Don’t even think it.
9. Everybody’s dad.
I’m honestly shocked I’ve not seen him yet, and maybe this is a generational thing, but Rick Moranis.
I mean, he was like a dad to us kids growing up in the early 90’s.
8. A genuine guy.
I did some graphic design work for a PR firm that was doing PR for the greatest showman and they got me into a party for the cast. He talked to everyone.
He was genuinely interested in what everyone did. I mentioned I had done some of the design work and he complimented me on one of my designs.
7. This is oddly true.
Weird Al. Everything about him is just wholesome.
I met him in Vermont where he was playing a small show near my college. Everyone always tells me I look like the guy, and through one of those strange quirks of life I’d worn the same hair, glasses, and loud shirts as Al since elementary school before ever hearing his music.
He told me he wasn’t feeling well, and would I please learn accordion in the short time before he was due on stage so I could be his body double. I love that man.
6. Just like you’d expect.
Had a buddy run into him at a skate shop in my city. Buddy said he was super cool and had a great convo, took a picture, and said he was as jack blackish as you’d expect.
5. Seems legit.
I like… I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.
4. Well I hate all of this.
Friendly reminder to never buy Bob Ross merch. His family doesn’t see a penny of those profits. They all go to an asshole who has rights to his likeness.
That Netflix documentary broke my heart! His paints and brushes have been on my wish list for awhile. I was sad to learn how badly they stiffed him and his son. Now people can’t buy products with his face on them without supporting horrible, horrible people in the process.
3. It would ruin everything.
Tim Curry. I would lose my fucking mind if the man who sparked my love of musical theater turned out to be a monster.
I could never look at my acting the same way again.
Someone just posted about him the other day. I asked her about it and this is what she said (u/bitchfaceluv):
“He is the sweetest. He compliments everyone he meets so genuinely, he told me my hair was beautiful, he told a girl I worked with he loved her freckles, like he just wanted to make everyone feel confident and loved. Being around him you completely forget he’s famous because he’s so easy to talk to, kind of shy, and kind. I was always a huge fan of him as an actor, but him as a human being is truly precious.”
2. No one has to lie.
All you have to do is listen to a few Office Ladies podcast episodes and you’ll get a clear idea of who Steve Carell is. Angela and Jenna adore him and every guest on the pod says how wonderful and kind he is. No one has to do that.
They could just say nothing or that he is really funny and leave it at that. But they talk about him like he is the nicest person on earth. I believe them 🙂
1. He seems so genuine.
he’s always radiated kind-heartedness, glad I’m not the only one who thinks so!
Some of these would for sure be hard to take for all of us!
