What celebrities have you met and what (did they smell like?) were they like?

A post on reddit today has sparked a few discussions about various celebrities that people have met. It's one thing to meet a celebrity for an autograph, or a convention, but some users had interesting critiques from working directly with them.

From one user:

• Daniel Radcliffe - utter sweetheart, so professional with a wicked sense of humour. He's completely tiny though and chain smokes like a motherfucker.

• Mariah Carey - total out of touch with the world. Insisted on being interviewed by candlelight and in a silk nightgown. She has no idea of the real world and no concept of anything outside of hers.

• Douglas Booth - really pleasant to interview and work with but super bland. He's just the walking embodiment of the colour beige and coddled by his agents. However, I hear he's finally loosening up and hopefully will finally stop being a giant box office flop.

• Kit Harrington - absolute flirt with a huge drinking problem. I worry for him going off the rails or getting into an accident as a result of how heavily he drinks on a daily basis.

• Tom Cruise - one of the nicest (if most intense people) I've ever spoken to but he makes an effort to speak to every single person on set, remembers their names and makes eye contact with everyone (some many so-called "celebrities" think they're above basic human interaction) Worked with him a few years later and he remembered our first meeting.

• Jeremy Irons - totally intense and gave off a slightly crazy vibe. Then two weeks later he interviews with someone else and confesses he was briefly infatuated with his son Max (who is wonderful to work with/interview) and that gay marriage would lead to fathers marrying their sons for property reasons...

• Kate Moss - utterly coked off her tits when we worked with her (quite a few years back), started complaining about the little girl who was playing in the corner of the studio and asking everyone to get "that fucking girl to shut the fuck up" as it was "doing [her] head in"... Only to be informed that that little girl was actually her daughter...

• Emma Watson - Complained to her publicist about everything, but one on one is lovely (but I'm dubious as to how much that was "professional mode") Sorry. (ONTD was just speculating whether Emma was hard to deal with)


• Eddie Redmayne - really shy and polite to everyone (we were all convinced he was flirting with the male hairdresser but it turns out he wanted his details as he loved the grooming job he did on him that day and wanted to regularly use him in the future... However he is ever so slightly earnestly camp)

• Kate Winslet - hands down one of my favourites to work with. Drinks and swears like a trooper, makes time for everyone on set and doesn't complain about long shoot hours. She has absolutely no pretences on set. Have worked with her a number of times now and would jump at the chance to work with her again.

• Brad Pitt - just super bland. Can joke around with the crew and everyone really likes him but he comes across as a bit of a void. No complaints, but no overall lasting memories of him, just a meh shoulder shrug. I have a friend who has worked with him frequently over the years and is convinced he just adopts his current partner's personality/interests.

• Lindsay Lohan - now, I thought she was going to be an absolute nightmare. I was prepared for her not to turn up, be unprofessional/wasted, have crazy demands or things go missing from the shoot... The total opposite.
She turned up early, Starbucks in hand, went through all the looks with the fashion editor, seemed really into it, shot the whole story without any complaints - changed into a dressing gown after each look so she could chain smoke about 5 Malboro's at once and made sure the smoke didn't get anywhere near the samples throughout the shoot (a nightmare if we have to return the clothes the same day)
The only real issues was that she wanted her own hair and make-up team (who can only seem to do hooker level make-up... But that was her one request for the shoot) and that no "major" designers would lend for the shoot once we clarified it was LL we were shooting as they didn't want their brands associated with her. Such a shame as I think underneath it all is a sweet girl who has just been totally screwed by her parents (the less said about Dina Lohan pimping out her daughter... The better - that is a HUGE scandal waiting to explode)

• Tom Hiddleston - really intelligent and modest guy. He'd just come back from a UNICEF event when we interviewed him and he was totally gracious about the whole thing. He also insisted on everyone else getting lunch before him and chatted to all the crew in detail about their lives. Would love to work with him again.

• Miles Teller - absolute asshole. He's so talented but just doesn't get that he'll burn his rep with so many people. He says exactly what comes into his head with no social filter - whether it's misogynist and he thinks it's just harmless flirting, or arrogant as fuck as no one has told him otherwise (he was also dumped by the Whiplash director for the same reasons and now won't be collaborating with him in the future)

Another user described his job as a tour guide for high risk activities in Hawaii:

I got to deal with Rihanna and her friends/family/entourage many months ago. She was generally a pain in the ass. Super demanding, ignored most of our instruction, and showed up super drunk/stoned. On the bright side, her bodyguard and some of her sober entourage were fun and pretty chill.

Yet another had frequent interactions with the two Supernatural dudes, as their barister:

Jensen Ackles - served him coffee on 4 different occasions, super nice and very friendly. Always made sure to ask about our lives and such and tipped well

Jared Padalecki - Served him coffee once, was super rude. Basically wanted nothing to do with my coworker and I


What do you think, ONTD? Do these observations match your speculations?
