So I thought it would be interesting to hear about all your “six degrees of Kevin Bacon” relationships to celebrities!
This came up today because I finally figured out where I knew a famous YouTuber from. He was 3 years older than me in school and we are from the same hometown. It suddently makes quite a few of the things he has become fairly well known for more… interesting…because he talks a lot about how much of an outsider he was growing up and how he didn’t fit in because he was Asian exept the largest minority at the school we went to was Asian. So now I am dubious of some of his other stuff as well.
I also had a friend who worked an event with JJ Watts (the football player for Houston) and despite his super friendly image and how much publicity he does, its apparently all a show. He was straight up rude to the event staff. Which makes me sad because he seems like a great guy.

hannahshope : Idk about “celebrity” but I know a guy who had a small recurring role on Vampire Diaries/The Originals and a few other shows. He’s not super famous, but he’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life.

I can’t speak for your aquaintance who lies on Youtube, that’s weird.
I have been around a few celebrities and they are just normal people, the football player could have had some real life issue he was dealing with or worried about that day. It can be difficult to be “on” all day, every day. I would cut him some slack there.

My dad worked with Caitlin Jenner about fifteen years ago – went terribly (they were shooting at a racetrack and Jenner ended up crashing a car then insisting it was the car’s fault–engineers checked and it was definitely user error–then generally being rude to everyone for the rest of the day.
He also worked with Clint Eastwood about eight years ago and had an awesome time! Said Clint was a real gentleman and fun to talk to.
About five years ago he worked with Guy Fieri and actually said that of the three big name celebrities he’s worked with (he works with C list types frequently and lots of NASCAR drivers – not sure what those count as?) Guy was his favorite. He was super friendly, loved talking to people and was thrilled to give autographs.

my husband’s best friend books talent for a living. he has a few big name that he regularly works with. when he has shows near us, we usually get tickets and many times do meet and greets with the talent.
if we go to the late show, one of the comedians, usually takes us all to dinner/drinks afterwards. he’s pretty chill and a great person to be around.
