30 Photos Of Random And Wholesome Encounters With Celebrities That People Found And Shared

Aside from the palm trees, endless summers, and beach days, many visitors go to Los Angeles in the hopes of spotting a celebrity. While Hollywood Boulevard is bustling with visitors on any given day, you’re more likely to see your favorite celebrity’s name on a Walk of Fame star than in person, unless you’re in town for a Hollywood film premiere. 

And even though you’re used to seeing them on the big screen, you can sometimes catch them doing ordinary things on the street. In fact, your chances of spotting a celebrity will increase if you do things a normal person would do in their city — go out to dine, shop for groceries, relax on the beach, or stop by Starbucks for a cup of coffee. It’s true that you’re more likely to see a celebrity at Starbucks than in Hollywood. This proves that while many people view celebrities as greater beings, in reality, they’re only humans, just like us. And of course, nobody would waste the chance to grab a few pictures of these stars whenever they can.

Here are some photos of when people are lucky enough to actually encounter celebrities in real life.
