Even though basketball legend Magic Johnson has long since retired from the sports world, he certainly has not lost any of his magic.
A fan tells us of the time the colossal sportsman noticed the teenage fan staring wide-eyed at him during a Father’s Day lunch and graciously called him over. The good-natured Johnson engaged in a conversation with the whole family and obligingly took selfies with the group. Could there be any better way for Father’s Day to go?
We will let you in on a secret. Captain America has a weakness: two left feet! Chris Evans, a Hollywood hunk and Marvel superhero, might not have been aiming to go incognito with this encounter, but that’s precisely what happened when the mother of this fan’s friend got to experience his atrociously lousy dance moves.
The fan recounts that his friend’s mom accepted Evans's invitation for her to dance, just thinking he was a regular Joe Schmo at the bar. Only once they showed her the “Avengers” movie did she realize who he was!
Johannesburg is not exactly the best city to be suspiciously following people around. Luckily for this fan and his friend, actor Tim Robbins laughed at their antics. The fan was attending a jazz show when he noticed the tall performer in the crowd.
Trying not to fangirl too much, the fan kept his distance until he saw Robbins was about to leave. At that point, he and his friend tailed Robbins out of the club. The vigilant Robbins turned around, and the fan said, “Excuse me, Mr. Dufresne.” in reference to his “Shawshank Redemption” character. Robbins was relieved.
Weird Al Yankovic
Everyone’s favorite goofball, parody extraordinaire Weird Al Yankovic, threw in a sprinkle of good-natured self-degradation when a fan told him that meeting the comedian was the greatest moment of his life. Weird Al remarked that meant his life has not been particularly amazing.
The fan recounts how Weird Al took the time to introduce himself personally to the audience members, shaking hands and taking selfies. We are not sure where the weird part comes in, as Alfred Matthew Yankovic seems perfectly normal!
Funny man Rob Schneider melted this fan’s heart when he took the time to compliment her on being a mom. The fan was getting ready to catch a flight when the comedic actor remarked how beautiful her baby was.
The fan, busy getting all her luggage together, said thanks without realizing who it was until she looked up. The second thing she realized was how nice Schneider’s skin was! When she told her husband of the encounter, he would not believe her until Schneider walked past again and waved at her.
