If there's one takeaway from these encounters, it's the fact that more often than not celebrities are as much of an average joe as we are. Well, minus all the fame and fortune and what not, but you get the point. Check out what it was like for these lucky fans to meet their favorite celebrities!
In January of this year, I won the chance to take a cab ride and grab some pizza with the actor Bobby Cannavale. I was home in NYC on winter break from drama school in LA and made a donation to a Syria relief fundraiser that offered the hangout as a prize. We got some slices in the West Village then sat in a park and talked about everything from acting to how one gets a girlfriend like Rose Byrne. It was a dream come true for me as he's long been an actor I look up to. In fact, it was a particular performance of his in a Broadway play that convinced me to go to college specifically for acting. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to tell him that in person. He also did his part in persuading me to move back to NYC after graduation to start my career, which I wound up doing. I do not regret it for a second. (Source)
