5 Celebrities Who Go Above And Beyond For Their Fans
Stars, they’re so much better than us. Between almost killing us on the road while intoxicated like Amanda Bynes or Justin Bieber yelling obscenities at people invading his privacy at Disneyland... It's a wonder we’re allowed to enjoy they’re holy essence at all. But some truly go above and beyond for their fans. These few actually think we’re people you guys!
Not a soul in Hollywood has a bad word to say about Tom Hanks, he simply has the best all around reputation of any star. So, it comes as no surprise (but endless delight) that after a fan asked to take pictures with him (while pretending to be shwasted), Tom was immediately down.
FAN: Can I have an autograph? BILL MURRAY: No. FAN: What about if you, like, star in my student film. BILL MURRAY: Yeah, ok. FAN: Thank you and thank you for not agreeing to do Ghostbusers 3. You are an American treasure. AND SCENE!
An oldie but a goodie. When JK found out about Natalie McDonald, a 9 year old fan dying of cancer she tried to wrap up the series and let Natalie know what happens to her favorite wizard and his friends. Sadly, Natalie died before she could ever read the confidential spoilers from the author. In tribute to her memory, JK wrote Natalie into the story and even sorted her worthily into House Gryffindor so she could be with her characters forever. I’m sorry guys, this Smosh article is now covered in tear stains, I don’t know what came over me. Someone make fun of the Firstie to snap me out of this!
People call Louis Ck a, “Comedian’s comedian”, but I’m fairly sure he’s gone on to be a fan’s comedian as well. For his latest tour he’s helping all his fans bypass Ticketmaster and their ilk by selling them on his site. No service fees, no “convenience fees”, no matter where the venue is. His goal is to reduce and/or remove scalping from equation on the corporate and entrepreneurial fronts. More artists should take note.
The next time you feel like staging a mutiny against your teachers, may I suggest casting Johnny Depp in the title role?
