You’re walking down the street, as usual, going to school, job or to your favorite cafe to meet your friends. Suddenly, your favorite celeb comes out of nowhere, and you get the opportunity to tell your friends a remarkable story. Meeting the person you admire can be really tense situation. Surely, there are a lot of things you would like to say to him or her. But in order not to embarrass yourself, you need to follow a few tips.
1. Don’t Ever Scream
Maybe your favorite celeb just wants a little time off of publicity, which is usually the case. If you manage to tame yourself and just discretely approach to him/her, he or she would surely appreciate your effort to not point out his/her identity, and could agree to give you an autograph.
2. Don’t Look Suspicious
Your favorite celeb could suspect that you’re some kind of stalker, and you definitely don’t want to make that impression! Put your greatest smile on, but try to hold yourself from bursting to bubbles once you try to shake your fav celebrity’s hand. It might even work for you.
3. Avoid Movie Character Names
Nobody likes to be called by wrong name. Don’t presume you know him/her just because you’ve read a couple of stories in the news papers or seen all the movies they’ve starred in.
4. Don’t be Critical
Don’t ever try to say: “Oh, hi! You look a lot fatter in real life!”, or for that matter, “Ohhhhh, I thought you were taller!!!!!!!” Nobody likes to be criticized, especially movie stars, for they are often criticized for the way they’re dressed or for gaining a couple of pounds, which is surely stressful thing to be exposed to.
5. Don’t Take it Personally
Even, if they’re not interested in talking to you, it may not be because of their tremendous ego. Maybe they’re just not in the mood or they are simply having a bad day. What you should definitely not say is a curse word or start yelling on purpose so that everyone would know who he is. Act polite and move along. You can badmouth him later to your friends and get over it. Rejection is always painful in a way.
6. Don’t Talk about your Private Life
Don’t embarrass yourself. Nobody is comfortable listening to your private stories; neither is your number one celeb. Keep your conversation pleasant and brief.
7. Don’t Promote Yourself
Avoid saying things like: “Hey, I have some demos you might want to hear!!!!”. That usually doesn’t work.
8. Avoid Stalker-like Behavior
You can go ahead and try to ask them: “Hey can you give me your phone number?”, but usually that doesn’t go on very well. You might be even considered a stalker, which you’re not and cause some bad reactions, as well.
9. Don’t Ask Too Much of Them
What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger, but you should not ask a celeb: “Hey, let’s go have some coffee with my friends!” Celebrities are often very busy, and being rejected by your role-model might hurt.
10. Don’t be Pushy
You should definitely avoid saying: “Hey, you! What are you doing here? Are you meeting someone famous, as well? Can I meet her, too!!!??????” That’s too pushy and might be very annoying.
Celebs are just as human as everyone else, so basically, don’t say things you don’t want said to you.
