Getting to meet our favorite celebrities can be a dream come true for many, yet the encounter isn't always a positive one. Fans reveal the true nature of some of the most famous people in the world, sharing the encounters with celebs who turned out to be stand up people, and those who definitely were not.

Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift

"Taylor Swift, bit of a b---h. Most of her music in concert is very angry, lashing out at anyone that's ever 'mistreated her' (read: not done what she wanted). She's not big on fan requests, in any way, down to being snappy at 8 year old girls that worship the ground she'd walked on." (Source)

Steven Tyler
Steven Tyler

"Steven Tyler pumped my gas. He grew up in New Hampshire and has a summer home in Sunapee. I was driving through town and stopped for gas. I couldn't get the pumps to work because they're old and I'm dumb. I hear someone say behind me, 'Let me help you out' and grab the pump. I turn around and see Steven Tyler. So being the smooth 17 year old I was, I said, 'Oh my god! You're Steven Tyler, from Aerosmith!' He smiled and said, 'Yeah, and you are?' So I replied, 'I'm Sarah! From (town I lived in)!' He started laughing at me and I just stood there grinning like an idiot. 'Well, Sarah from (town I lived in), have a nice day!' and took off. I called my mom to gush about meeting him but she went to high school with him and basically said I shouldn't talk to heroin addicts." (Source)

All Over The Board
All Over The Board

"I have met a few due to my line of work. These were mostly more interaction than 'omg can I get a pic.' Examples: Clint Eastwood. Very cool and polite, but not extremely talkative. I took it as his demeanor, not a snub. Kelly Clarkson. Also very sweet and humble. I don't think she has forgotten where she came from. All of Metallica. Lars seemed a little d--kish and self important, but James and the rest were eager to chat and great dudes. Sammy Hagar. My mom knows his sister. Only a quick meeting but seemed friendly. I guess my mom sees he fairly often (not in that way! I hope. Dad?) Kanye West. Total a--hole. I was hoping he would have a seizure in front of me so my day could be brightened. Oasis. You can imagine. Heidi Klum and Seal. Pretentious a--hats. Tori and Dean. Down to earth people as well. Show is pretty close to reality, but they do have slightly more child care assistance than they let on. Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag. Wanted to punch Spencer until he stopped breathing and rescue Heidi. I don't know, she didn't seem that dumb in real life. It was weird. She seemed regretful IRL. Strange encounter. To sum it up: The Worst - tie between Kanye and Satan. The Best - Ron Jeremy. I s--t you not, he is genuinely a man who would give a stranger his shirt. He is deep, thoughtful and I actually feel like my life gained value by listening to him. Don't judge him by his line of work, he is a good man with a good heart." (Source)

Carlos Santana
Carlos Santana

"Met Carlos Santana, waiting to board a plane at like 6am. Awesome dude. Our daughter who was about six months old at the time was making faces at him, and he commented that if she was already trying to flirt with rockers, we're going to be in a world of trouble as parents." (Source)

Samuel L. Jackson
Samuel L. Jackson

"Samuel L. Jackson came to a show at the theater I work at in Atlanta. Our box office attendant was taking his credit card for tickets and needed to ask his address to process the payment (our system was a little ghetto back then). His response: 'See, this kind of s--t happens in black theaters, no motherf--kin white theater is gonna ask that, they're just gonna take my money.' I was way more excited that she got Sam Jackson to say 'motherf--kin' than I should have been." (Source)

James Franco
James Franco

"James Franco happened into a bar I worked at the Halloween after Spiderman 2 came out. He was nice and friendly, but was completely annoying by the end of the night. Not in a celebrity annoying way; he wasn't demanding anything, was by himself, didn't pull any 'I'm famous' stuff with ladies, and not acting like an a-hole. He was really nice, actually, but just annoying as s--t. I don't think he stopped talking the entire night." (Source)

Redman And Method Man
Redman And Method Man

"I met Redman and Method Man after they did their album together and they are exactly as you would imagine. I was under 18 and I got backstage to one of their concerts. They were awesome about taking pictures and insisted on having random groupies take semi-explicit pictures with 'lil n----- who snuck backstage.' ...Then Redman got so high he passed out on the snack table."

Adam Sandler And Kevin James
Adam Sandler And Kevin James

"I once saw Adam Sandler and Kevin James coming out of a movie theater in LA. A group of teenage girls ran up to them, freaked out and asked Kevin James to take a picture of them with Adam Sandler. Kevin James laughed about it and took the picture." (Source)

THE WORST
THE WORST

"Taylor Swift. She acts exactly like what her videos make her out to be - immature. She annoyed the crap out of me. I also found out she freaks when people don't know who she is. Carrie Underwood. Worst f--king b---h I have ever met. She was throwing a birthday party for her now husband and everything HAD to be about her. She literally screamed orders, inches away from people's faces. Other days she kept scratching herself, I don't know if she had crabs or what. Lea Michele. Sadly, pretty similar to Carrie. Rather than throwing temper tantrums, she just flat-out refuses to talk to anyone who's not famous or working for her. No autographs. No photos. She rolls her eyes at fans. After the third encounter where she gave the 'talk to the hand' signal to a little girl, I wanted to throw her out the window. Miranda Lambert. This woman would f--k a coat rack if it gave her the time of day. She seemed permanently drunk or permanently stupid, she had to have someone hold her hand at every moment. LeAnn Rimes. I have to be fair and say I only knew her when she was young. But she was a whiny, stuck-up b---h. Bragged that her daddy moved the family all over the country because her daddy knew she was going to be a star. Blegh. Jodie Foster. Demand, demand, demand. Does not know the words 'please,' 'thank you,' or 'hello.' Does not care who you are, unless she's about to be on camera with you, and then snap! It's instant smiles and charm. I'm pretty sure those are indications of a psychopath." (Source)

THE BEST
THE BEST

"Richard Gere. Stand up guy. Sweet, a little flirtatious. Very patient with everyone he meets, very willing to work with people and open to taking advice. The nicest actor I have ever met. Axl Rose. Very nice, surprisingly. Very distracted that day but not at all rude. Sally Field. Down to earth, great sense of humor, makes fun of herself. Love her. Dolly Parton. She relies a little too much on her staff for my taste, but she is a class act. And funny! Snoop Dogg. This is a guy who just doesn't give a s--t about facade. Incredibly generous with his time and his possessions. I loved him. Drew Barrymore. One of the sweetest women I've ever known, it's no wonder she was taken advantage of in her youth. She craves positive attention, reminded me of a little lost puppy dog expecting to be hit. She does have an impressive use of obscenities, however. Hugh Jackman. I went to a showing of the first X-Men movie and dressed up as Rogue. NO ONE ELSE dressed up. I got stares and felt really, really stupid. He tapped me on the shoulder and said, 'Wow, you're really dedicated aren't you?' At the time I had no idea who he was, he wasn't dressed as Wolverine and he was pretty unknown, so I told him to piss off. He laughed and walked away. Now that I know, that was a really cool way for him to handle the situation." (Source)

Wil Wheaton
Wil Wheaton

"I went up to Wil Wheaton's table at a con, and after chatting with him a bit, got a signed photo from him. As I was walking away, I realized I forgot to pay for my photo. I started to get really anxious, because I didn't want Wil Wheaton to hate me. So I waited in his long line again, and when I explained why was there again, he said, 'You waited in line again? What a sweetheart!' So yeah. The coiner of 'Don't be a dick' called me a sweetheart." (Source)

Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey

"Matthew McConaughey is very kind. I tried to take a photo of him (on my boss's orders) but I didn't want to, so I was trying to use my phone's reverse camera. He noticed what I was doing, and that I was having trouble, and told me, 'You can just do it.' So now I have a photo of Matthew McConaughey laughing at me. It's fantastic. Also, his voice sounds exactly the same in real life." (Source)

Kelly Rowland
Kelly Rowland

"The best I've met was Kelly Rowland. I was 9 (this was when Destiny's Child was still big) and had extreme anxiety problems. I got separated from my mom in Las Vegas. I was running through a casino, sobbing and ran smack into her and knocked her over. Her security was all over me in about three seconds, but she told them to leave me alone. She helped me up, hugged me, told me she liked my shoes, and asked what my mom looked like. She actually helped me find my mom! I finally figured out who she was, and said in a much too loud voice, 'You're my favorite and I know all your songs and I THINK YOU'RE PRETTIER THAN BEYONCÉ AND YOU SHOULD BE IN FRONT.' She cracked up and told me I was very sweet. She ended up hanging out with us for a few more minutes, even sang with me. It was the single greatest moment of my 9 year old life. At the end of the encounter, I asked her for her autograph, and she signed it, 'To ---, my #1 fan who knocked me off my feet! Keep listening. Love, Kelly.'" (Source)

Dale Earnhardt
Dale Earnhardt

"I got to met Dale Earnhardt before he died. F--k that guy. I was 10 at an autograph sesh and after I had asked for a picture with him he took my camera and threw it in the garbage. What an a--hole, I don't care who you are you don't do that to a kid." (Source)

Lewis Black
Lewis Black

"I met Lewis Black in Iowa City when he was doing a show at a college. He's not nearly like his stand up. He's a very cool guy. I was a little drunk, and without making an a-- of myself, I walked over and told him I enjoyed his stand up and the movie Accepted, to this he shook my hand and asked me if I saw his show. I told him I had not because I didn't go to that college. He handed me 2 tickets and said 'come see the show.' VERY COOL." (Source)

Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.

"The worst (by far) was Dale Earnhardt Jr. We lived right down the road from the Pocono Raceway. My friends and I (we were all around 12) used to get our parents to buy us soda and beer and we would throw them all in a cooler and make lots of money selling it to rednecksfans before and after the race. After the race one day, we were calling out to the people, 'Fifty cents, ice cold soda! $1 Beers! Celebrate (whatever nascar driver's) win with a cold beer!' Suddenly an angry looking guy in shades comes stomping toward us, beer can in hand, yelling and asking if we had permits. I just shrugged, my friends shook their heads no. He continues to rant and tells us to 'Get the hell on out of here.' I told him, 'No way, loser, we're here to make money!' His face goes purple and he throws his half-empty beer at me, screaming. My friends are backing away, I stand my ground, and say to him, 'Go and hit me so I can go tell my dad about the crazy drunk redneck that tried to kill me loser!' He loses his s--t. Flips his sunglasses up, starts yelling his face off, and calls for security. My friends and I book it. About a mile away, one of them finally turns to me and says, 'You idiot!' And I'm just like, 'Pssh, what was he gonna do?' and my friend says, 'No, you moron, that was Dale Earnhardt Jr.!' My reply, '...who?' My friends explain who he is and the fact that he had just lost miserably, and I'm the a--hole sitting there calling him a loser. Uh... my bad?" (Source)

Parker Posey
Parker Posey

"Whispered to my sister, 'that that lady looks a lot like Parker Posey,' at the grocery store. I live in Vermont, so I never in a million years thought I would see a celebrity there. Then she burst out, 'OH I heard my name! Celebrity in the grocery store!' Sister: 'Are you really Parker Posey?' Parker Posey: 'Yup I am real. You can touch!' And she holds out her arm. We were so flabbergasted we touched her sleeve, and said it was nice to meet her. I wish I asked for a photo. To Parker Posey if you see this, my sister and I aren't usually as awkward as we were. You were lovely." (Source)

Jack Black
Jack Black

"I got drunk with Jack Black in Lake Tahoe. I was at Cabo Wabo after a Sammy Hagar concert and Sammy stopped by to play a couple more songs. When I was checking out the crowd I saw Jack Black mingling about, so I offered to by him a shot. Jack, myself and my two buddies all took our shots and then a few more. We all ended up dancing around like a bunch of apes. It was a good time." (Source)

Geoffrey Rush
Geoffrey Rush

"Sat next to Geoffrey Rush on a train. Sent a message to my friend saying 'Holy crap, I'm sitting next to Geoffrey Rush' and he must have read over my shoulder. He laughed. He was in a play in Melbourne and I was going to see it about a week later. I told him I was looking forward to it. He asked my name, and then told me to go to the box office when I saw the show. A week later when I saw it, I went to the box office. He'd reserved me and my friends front row seats. An absolute gentlemen! One of the nicest guys ever!" (Source)

Warren Buffet
Warren Buffet

"Warren Buffet bought my brother and I malts at our local malt shop. Walked up to my dad, said that he'd like to buy our malts and that was that. Neither of us knew who he was, being 5 or six at the time, but it was definitely a cool move." (Source)
