Meeting celebrities can be a big event in the lives of people who aren’t famous. Depending on how famous the celebrity is, you could be talking about it for weeks, months, or even years. Most celebrities may not even remember most of their interactions with individual fans. However, on the off chance that you mistake someone for a celebrity, both parties are likely to remember the incident for life. The following are incidents where people mistakenly took celebrity look-alikes for prominent celebrities. Some of them are priceless.
We all loved Hugh Laurie’s portrayal of Dr. House. The unorthodox doctor was never far from controversy, yet he was so brilliant. Some would say too brilliant. Well, this huge Hugh Laurie fan finally had a chance to meet his favorite fictional character. He took his opportunity with both hands. Only to realize that the man he was fangirling over wasn’t the same man who featured on House. The man was probably the most confused person in the room but didn’t object to the picture. What a nice guy.
To be fair to the fan in the picture, the guy he thought he met does look a lot like Jake Gyllenhall. Maybe in a poorly lit room, people may have even started to form cues to meet this man. However, the place in the picture looks like it had adequate lighting. So that excuse is out the window. However, the funniest part about this picture is how the fake Gyllenhall is embracing his fan. It’s so nice to see celebrities making time for the people they do this for.
Game of Thrones has one of the biggest fan followings in the world. The fantasy world of royal houses, dragons, white walkers was on everyone’s minds while the show was on-air. George. R.R Martin wrote the books that eventually got created into one of the greatest television series ever produced. He’s also kept fans on edge by not finishing the book series. All this was probably on this fan’s mind when he thought he met his favorite writer. I wonder if he asked him when he’ll finish writing the books.
