Fans are revealing the celebrities that treated them badly when they met them in real life
The old saying goes that you should never meet your idols and it's easy to see why. Let's face it, by building celebrities up and putting them on a such a high pedestal, we're pretty much asking for trouble. Whether it comes in the form of a public breakdown, or a private exchange, we can often be left disappointed by our idols and who they really are.
So, in light of this, the users of Reddit have pulled together to reveal who the rudest celebrities on Earth are.
1. William Shatner
"William Shatner said he would give me an autograph in Hawaii when I was about 10 . He said ‘lemme get a pen’, got in his limo and drove off." - cptgonzo
2. Bam Margera
"Bam Margera showed up in Seattle once to film an episode. Talked a lot of shit to the wrong local skater. I watched Bam get knocked out by said local. One of the funniest things I have ever seen." - Optic1
3. Lenny Kravitz
"I haven’t met many but Lenny Kravitz stayed at the hotel I worked at. He had the hotel sign an agreement that the staff were not to look at him or talk to him." - eatmysh*t
4. Eric Roberts
"Eric Roberts was a guest at a small, local comic convention. Thought it would be cool to get a signed pic of him as the Master. He pretended people weren't there until they paid his manager fifty bucks. My wife's parting shot as we walked away? "Loved your work on Celebrity Rehab." - Caretaker14
5. Prince Charles
"I once called Prince Charles "Chuck" and then was suspended from school for doing so. It wasn't his decision, as administration was right by me when I said it, but he was definitely not impressed by my edgy teen behaviour and gave me a slight scowl." - tyereliusprime
6. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
"My dad is a pilot and he frequently deals with celebrities. His company has all the staff sign NDAs, but my dad usually doesn't even know who the celebrities are unless they've been in the news. He said that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are incredibly rude to their own staff. Personal assistants were terrified of them." - trolldoll26
7. Kris Jenner
"I worked for a Vespa dealer in southern California around 2010. She bought a scooter and I drew the short straw and had to deliver it to her Hidden Hills home.
"I knocked at their door and no sooner did her assistant open it, I hear Kris screech from the second floor, " DO NOT LET HIM IN HERE!" in her Cruella de Vil like voice.
"I said that is fine (as if I wanted to linger around there any longer than necessary) just tell me where to leave the scoot so I can get out of here. She says, "Outback. The garage should be open."
"Upon getting to the garage I see someone with a dustbuster, cleaning the floorboard of a GT3RS Porsche. I make my presence known and out pops Bruce Jenner. Since my douche of a boss had the same car, I knew a little about it and we talked cars for a bit. After which, he invites me into their house for some water.
"I was giddy with excitement as I knew Kris would be livid at the sight of me in her home. Sure enough, as Bruce was showing me the family Christmas photo and explaining how Lamar had to be Photoshopped into it, Bitchface came storming down the stairs with a look of rage on her puss.
"Bruce introduced me to her by name which was cool. After having enough of my being there and my shit eating grin, she stormed off back to her upstairs lair.
"Bruce had no idea about what she told her assistant prior and that made my day. I don't care what Bruce/ Catlyn is up to these days but he (then) she (now) was very kind and down to earth at the time. Kris is a total bitch." - MMGTR
8. Piers Brosnan
"Pierce Brosnan. Saw him loading his car up at a farmer's market in Santa Monica. Walked up to him and told him I was a big fan. I didn't ask for a picture or anything. He got into his car and as he was backing up he told me to fuck right off. Maybe I was in the wrong for walking up to him, I was just excited." - K2D23PO
9. Eminem (I feel like we've heard this one before...)
"Eminem. I was in Denver once and I was waiting for an autograph with my little brother. It was a really cold and we waited for like 3 or 4 hours. He just said no." - Nach0Man_RandySavage
Of course, that final one is clearly a joke, the others, however, reflect badly on our favourite celebrities. Is it that hard to be rich and nice?
