The proof is here in these 10+ wholesome celebrity encounters. Just try not to smile reading these!

Rebel Wilson

When this Redditor worked at a radio station, the comedian brought their entire team chocolate-covered Oreos. She also went the extra mile to arrive early, make everyone laugh, and just be extremely nice. Are we even surprised?

Raven Symoné

"When I was 8 years old, I was in New York City and went to the Disney store with my parents. I walked upstairs and guess who I saw: Raven-Symoné! I shyly approached her and asked for a picture and she said, 'Of course, sweetheart! I love your outfit, by the way!' I walked away singing the That's So Raven theme song, and she sang it along with me!" - elexisgrace

Keanu Reeves

There are no shortage of "sweet Keanu moments."

This Reddit user shared that when they saw him in public, they yelled out, "Yo, Neo!" and then mimicked the bullet dodge motion from The Matrix. Keanu laughed and mirrored the same move in acknowledgment #Gem.

Princess Diana

"In 1993, my heavily pregnant mother was waiting to see Princess Diana (who was opening up a charity in our city center). My mum had been waiting ages just to get a glimpse of her, while balancing a toddler on her bump. As soon as Princess Diana saw my mum, she demanded someone get my mum a chair and chatted with her until they brought it." - lazyleo

Rosario Dawson

"My best friend and I met Rosario Dawson at a Women’s March — we were so overwhelmed by meeting such an incredible woman, we ended up crying. When we told her why we admired her so much, she started crying too. It was one of the best encounters of my life." - athenaj42a99a7eb

Whitney Houston

"Whitney Houston was a producer on The Princess Diaries movies, and my mom worked on set for the sequel. My mom happened to mention that it was my birthday, and Whitney took some of the balloons that can be seen on screen during Mia’s bachelorette party and told her to give them to me as a present. It was the best birthday ever!" - dianaquinn

Amy Poehler

"I sat next to Amy Poehler on a flight from NYC to LA, and funnily enough, Aziz Ansari was sitting in front of us. She wanted to mess with him because he didn't know she was sitting behind him — he thought it was me messing with him and looked annoyed until he realized Amy was there. She also made small talk with me during the whole flight, and she seemed so genuine and nice." - u/Papa_pepper_513


"In 1989, teenage me was learning to rollerblade in Central Park — I hadn't mastered stopping yet, so I usually just crashed into something stationary or threw myself on the ground. Well, I was trying to move out of the path of a biker and fell into two joggers, one of whom turned out to be Madonna. She was very sweet, she brushed off my apologies, and she reminded me to always wear my helmet." - awesomeamb

Jack Black

When this Redditor saw him in the street, he asked if it was really him. He said yes and then walked over and took a bunch of pictures with them. He also chatted for a while like a regular guy.

Tyra Banks

"I met Tyra Banks in line at an amusement park (everyone kept coming up to her asking her if she was Tyra Banks). I kept quiet and pretended I didn’t notice who she was. In line, Tyra and I talked about the other rides and she even said she liked my glitter makeup and that I was pretty — as an overweight teen, that always stuck with me." - lucindahaas

Jessie J

"I met Jessie J back in 2008 when I was 10 years old, and she was the opening act for a British girl group called Girls Aloud. At one of their shows, I got separated from my friend and her parents (cue the tears). Jessie came over, helped me locate my friend and her family, and stood with us for a bit while some other acts were performing. She was so nice, so talented, and called my friend and I adorable!" - alicephilpott2708

Jim Carrey

When this Redditor's car broke down, the comedian gave them a ride to the gas station.

Scarlett Johannson

"My wife took my son to the zoo, and he wanted to read every little plaque in the reptile area. My wife was distracted for a moment, so he asked the nearest stranger to read the plaque for him. My wife turned around to see Scarlett Johansson happily reading the info to him." - u/mojomann128

Tracy Morgan

When the comedian did his Ask Me Anything with Reddit, this Redditor told him that it was their birthday and asked him to tell them his favorite joke.

He did one better! He took a picture for them, wished them "Happy Birthday" on Twitter, and told them that they were the coolest dude on Earth.


"Retta (the person who played Donna on Parks and Rec) came by my school last year for stand up. She was extremly nice and easy to work with. She took pictures with everyone and autographs, even though her knees were bad that day." - deleted

Julie Andrews

Patrick Stewart

"I met him in Stanley Park in June 1991 when I was feeding squirrels. He seemed intrigued so I gave him some food and showed him how to call them over. He is just as nice in person as you would expect him to be." - NZT-48Rules

Jennifer Garner

"I help my husband host academic event tournaments at his school and sold concessions to Jennifer Garner. She bought a water for the kid in front of her so they didn’t have to break their $20 bill — just a nice parent supporting a kid in need of some snacks." - sarahp4dd24057e
