‘Nah, I’ll Pass!’ 10 Celebrities Who Said No To Taking Pics With Fans Or Signing Autographs

Many celebs look great and happy in the silly selfies they take with fans, so we often forget that they are human beings with their own life too. Over the years, fan selfies have turned from a great way of keeping memories to a way of getting attention on social media. This leads to a lot of privacy concerns and many other problems for these stars. No wonder why they stopped taking pics with fans or signing autographs!
Remember, you might feel like you know everything about your celebrity crushes, but they know nothing about you. They have every right to say no to taking pics with fans or signing autographs if the situations make them uncomfortable. Instead of a blurry photo, these celebs rather make their fans happy by other means. Let’s find out how they do it.

Billie Eilish won’t sign autographs for a very particular reason: Her autographs will be sold online later. Many times after she signed autographs for fans, she would find them being sold online.

3. Emma Watson

However, Watson is very happy to talk with her fans and will talk with them as long as they want. Just don’t photograph the encounter.

4. Chris Pratt

It’s pretty shocking to hear this, but Miley Cyrus is actually camera-shy! She dislikes taking fan photos not because it's tiring, but because she finds it embarrassing. “I’m so embarrassed because people are taking pictures of me, and I just don’t know how to smile and just be awkward, so I stick my tongue out, because I don’t know what else to do,” she explained.

8. Shailene Woodley

Russell Crowe is happy to spend time with his fans, just not when he is with his children though. At first, his son encouraged him to take pictures with fans so that they wouldn’t get sad. However, the fans kept demanding more and more of Crowe’s time and more pictures with him. “After two days, my little one said, ‘I think you can stop that now, Dad,” the actor recalled.
So those are the reasons why these celebrities say no to taking pics with fans or signing autographs. Their reasons are pretty solid, but some will say they’re just arrogant. What is your opinion? Speaking of arrogant celebrities, there are some famous people who are just a total nightmare to work with. If you think these guys are arrogant, wait until you see these actors.
