"Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was walking out of the restroom at my workplace. I commented that 'I smelled what The Rock was cooking' as we passed each other in the hallway. He turned back and gave me the People's Eyebrow."
That was ballsy thing to say as he is walking out of the bathroom. Good thing he didn’t take it the wrong way.
"When Joe Biden was a Senator I accidentally walked in on him while he was in the stall of an Amtrak bathroom. He sat there awkwardly for a second and then said 'I'd shake your hand but I don't think either of us wants that.'"
Joe Biden has always been straight, honest and to the point. Even in the bathroom.
"I was at a shoe store in Cleveland about 4 years ago and I was looking at the new Lebron shoes when a huge shadow appeared over me. And I turn around, and it was Lebron freakin' James standing there. He smiled and said 'you want my new shoes?' I stumbled over my words for a few seconds and then said ‘Yes. I think I'm going to buy a pair right now’. He then asked me my size, went up to the front desk and bought me two pairs. One he signed, and he said the other was for me to practice my post moves in. It was one of the best days of my life."
"Ryan Gosling paid for my parking on Hollywood Blvd once. We had parked in the same parking lot. He was leaving and we were arriving and I struck up a conversation with him real quick. He asked where I was from and why I was there and who I was with. The he said, 'Oh you guys have 40 bucks to drop on just parking? Must be loaded.' I chuckled and was about to say something back when he said, ‘Don't worry about parking today man, I'll cover you all for the weekend. Have a fun spring break!' It was so cool. He is JUST as nice in real life as you think he would be."
As if we didn’t love him enough already. Be still my heart.
"Ice T was on the same flight as me, my mom and my sister when I was younger. My sister needed help getting her bags off the carousel but I was too busy reading Harry Potter and basically told her to get lost. Ice T comes walking over, shoots me the worst look, then grabs all my sisters bags and helped carry them to our car. I learned a good lesson that day; never help anyone because it's easier to let a celebrity do it for you."
When Ice T shoots you a bad look, you know that you will never forget it.
"Dave Chappelle has a history of running very long comedy shows. My buddy and I saw one of his shows a while back. It ran very very late, until almost 4 am on a weekday and by the end, almost the entire crowd had trickled out. Only about a dozen of us remained at the show by this point. Dave invited us to all play basketball with him the next afternoon. He had rented out an entire gym for an hour. Of course, my buddy and I took him up on the offer. We played pickup hoops with Dave Chappelle for over an hour. After everyone finished playing, a handful of us stuck around and talked with Dave. He bought us all fruit smoothies and gave us free tickets to his show the next night. He’s a SUPER nice guy, just like he is on TV. Couldn't have been any cooler."
"My girlfriend's mom lives in a house on a private island off of Miami Beach. The girlfriend and I are down there on vacation last summer and I was fixing the tail light on her mom's car when I see Lenny Kravitz walking up with his little dog. He said something along the lines of, 'I have never seen you around before.' I said I was visiting with my girlfriend. I will never forget when he replied, 'Tall chick?' 'Ya', I said. Then he got this big smile on his face and said, 'Right on.' He high fives me and walked away. At that moment I knew what cool was and I knew I would never have it."
"Russell Brand was an absolute peach to me. I interviewed him for my blog and he stopped mid-sentence and said, 'You're beautiful—you know that, right?'. He then added my favorite, 'You've got lovely cheeks!'"
“I had Bill Nye burst into my elevator at the airport and say,‘Will this get me to the D gates!?’ ‘Uh, no, this is domestics only.’ ‘OK, thanks!’ and out he jumped. To this day I’ll never know if Bill Nye the Science Guy made his flight.”
We hope you rooted him on by singing the theme song.
“I was in Hollywood doing wanna-be rockstar stuff and my band found a lady parked on Sunset Blvd with a flat tire. Since we were all nice boys, we changed her tire. After shaking hands and saying thanks we were on our way back to our van when she came back over with something in her hands. At first I thought it was money and was mentally preparing for the refusing her cash when she handed me a few 8×10, autographed head shots. It was Meg Ryan. None of us recognized her.”
Really, head shots? She could have at least bought them some drinks!
“I was 17 in New York City and I just came back from spending the summer at the beach when I saw Jackie O getting into a green Mercedes. I asked for a ride to 81st & Lexington, as my grandparents lived there. She looked me up and down, gave a slight smile and said ‘No.’ Pretty cool encounter.”
“I was visiting family in Michigan when I met Eminem. I was given a list of food to buy at the grocery store the night before Thanksgiving, so I’m standing there eyeing the eggs when I see a guy in a hoodie walk up to the milk. I glance at him, then go on about my egg-buying business. He starts messing around with the milk jugs, so I look at him again and recognize him. I kind of fidgeted for a minute before I asked, ‘Are you who I think you are?’ His epic reply? ‘If I wasn’t, then why would I say I am?’ We exchanged Happy Thanksgiving wishes and parted ways.”
Eminem spitting his song lyrics while holding a jug of milk? Priceless.
“I was on a plane with Hulk Hogan once. On the backs of all of the chairs there were screens where you could watch movies, play trivia games or browse the internet. I played the trivia game and named myself ‘The Hulkster,’ and ended up pulling on 40-50 people who thought I was him.”
In the words of Mr. Hogan himself: “Well, let me tell you something brother…. “ that is hilarious!
"I was at a friend’s wedding at the Wynn in Las Vegas and were taking pictures in the Atrium when Tom Hanks emerged from the double doors behind our group and said 'Hey! Is this a wedding? Can I be in the pictures?' Everyone was quite annoyed until we realized it was Tom Hanks. He took pictures with the whole group and was a general all-around great guy."
Now we can add "wedding crasher" to Tom Hank’s list of accomplishments.
