While stalking may not be the PC word to use when it comes to meeting your favorite celebrities when they come to your area. It’s not like you are looking up their home address and peering through the bushes with binocular into their backyards. Instead, here are some things that you can do to have a legitimate chance to meet, and speak to, your favorite celebrity.
Where To Meet Celebs?
There are many reasons for celebs visiting cities, from film work to conventions. You don’t need to travel to where your favorite celebs live, you just need to know when they might be in your area.
You can keep watch on their travel plans for work and autograph sessions on their official social media pages or their websites. Things you might find them doing are book tours, shooting for film or television, or maybe attending a convention of some kind in your area.
Book signings and conventions are probably the best places to meet, but you’ll probably have to pay for a photo or autograph. If you just want to say “Hello” and maybe ask them a question it’s worth the price of their book or the ticket into the convention.
You can also look into what their favorite restaurants or stops are in certain cities so that you can maybe catch them out and about. You can easily look up business and restaurant hours online and peruse the places in hopes to meet up with them. This is a little closer to stalking though!
Tips On Talking To Celebs
More important than where to meet your favorite celebrities, you also better know how to talk to them. You don’t want to act like a fool or sound like a dork when you finally get to say “Hi.” Think of them as any other normal human being. Try to stay calm and keep your breathing even. Know what you want to say to them before you get there, you could even write it down, just in case you’re concerned about getting too nervous and messing up.
Remember that celebrities live busy lives. Even if you are meeting them at a book signing or convention, they may have limited time to speak to each person in line. Don’t ruin someone else’s chance of meeting their favorite celeb by monopolizing their time with too many questions or stories.
Also, if you are approaching them in a restaurant, store, bar or some other unscheduled stop, respect their privacy. They may not have time to talk or want to be noticed by everyone. Again, they are just regular people trying to live their lives. Don’t think them rude if they say they don’t want to talk or don’t have time for a photo or autograph.
