15 "Fans" Who Definitely Did NOT Meet A Celebrity

“You’ll never guess who I just met!” Those are the infamous words of people who never actually met the celebrity they claimed to have met. You would think that it would be easy to spot a celebrity in real life, but for some people, it’s a lot more difficult than it seems. Whether it involves meeting a little person and assuming it’s Peter Dinklage, meeting a red head and thinking it’s Ed Sheeran, or meeting someone who looks absolutely nothing like Bill Murray, we really can’t help but wonder if these people have ever actually seen a picture of the celebrities they claimed to have met. All I know is someone better tell these people that they absolutely did not meet a celebrity. So should you tell them or should I? Here are 15 people who definitely did not meet a celebrity.

15 'Game Of Thrones'

I actually can’t tell if these two girls really think that they just met Peter Dinklage or if this is simply a joke. The fact that these girls knew who Peter Dinklage is and how his name is spelled, shows us that they clearly know something about him. And if you know that much about him, couldn’t you at least see that this guy looks nothing like Peter Dinklage? Just because someone is a little person, does not mean that they are automatically Peter Dinklage. Furthermore, why would Peter Dinklage be buying young girls an “adult beverage”? I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Peter Dinklage is not one to break the law to give alcohol to young girls and then pose for a picture of it.

14 True Fan

If anyone was looking to find out what a true fan of Ed Sheeran looks like, look no further. That’s right ladies and gentlemen. These are true Ed Sheeran fans in all their glory. I don’t know how long I have been staring at this picture, but I still can’t figure out how not one person, but three people, can mistake Ed Sheeran for this guy. The only similarities are that Ed Sheeran and this imposter just so happen to both be men with red hair. That doesn’t really narrow things down if you ask me. And to be honest, the guy’s hair in this picture doesn’t even look that red, it actually looks more blonde. So if that’s the case, then the only similarities between Ed Sheeran and this person is that they are both guys.

13 Pirates Of The Caribbean

I don’t know if this next girl wears contact lenses, but after seeing her confuse this guy she is with for Johnny Depp, I have no doubt in my mind that she should be wearing them. And if she does happen to be wearing contact lenses, her eye doctor needs to increase her prescription strength immediately. I’m not really sure what aspect of this guy’s appearance made this person think that it was Johnny Depp. Was it the facial hair? The scarf? Your guess is as good as mine. Frankly, I would have been more apt to agree with this girl if she had said that she just met Dave Grohl of Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. At least this girl’s friends aren’t buying the Johnny Depp thing either.

12 Mill Burray

I don’t understand. Do people seriously not know what Bill Murray looks like? Have they ever even seen a Billy Murray movie? Not even Ghostbusters? I ask this because not only do these guys in the picture think that this un-lookalike is Billy Murray, but so do all of their friends on Facebook. When was the last time you saw Bill Murray in a half tucked seafoam green polo? Not to mention that the “Bill Murray” in question here seems to be wearing a name tag of some sort which indicates that he may be working at whatever event these guys were at. While the one guy who posted this on Facebook may want us to “be jealous,” I just wasn’t this guy to “be smarter."

11 1 Chain, 2 Chain

Hold on a second. One chain. Two chain. Yup! This guy is wearing exactly two chains. Therefore, according to my calculations, this guy in the picture must be 2 Chainz. Moreover, 2 Chainz has an estimated net worth of $6 million, so I have a hard time believing that anyone would run into him at friggin Red Robin. Not that there’s anything wrong with Red Robin, of course. Also, that’s not a beeper on his waist, is it? Let’s not forget that this guy looks absolutely nothing like 2 Chainz! This 2 Chainz “look alike” has very short hair, while the real 2 Chainz has long hair with braids. I can only assume that anyone wearing two chain necklaces would be identified as 2 Chainz by these clueless girls.

10 Champagne Papi

Okay, I’m not going to lie, this guy actually really looks like Drake so I can’t blame these next two girls for thinking that they met him. The more I look at this picture, the scarier this picture gets. Yes, I know that it’s not actually Drake, but damn, this guy really does look like him. He has the same hair, the same beard, and the same eyebrows. And I’m sure that if you were to ever actually meet Drake in person, he probably looks a little different than in pictures. So I really can’t blame these girls for this mix up. I guess the only way for these two girls to really know whether or not this is really Drake is to ask him to sing. Or to ask for his ID.

9 Mr. President

When was the last time anyone has ever met the most powerful man in the world in a fast food restaurant? When was the last time anyone has ever met any important person in a fast food restaurant for that matter? I don’t know who to feel worse for, the guy who thought he actually met President Barack Obama (even though this guy looks absolutely nothing like him) or for President Obama, because there are people out there who don’t know what our former resident of two terms looks like. I can’t help but wonder if this guy was surprised to see that there was no secret service with this version of the president. Then again, if this guy doesn’t know what the former US President looks like, I doubt he knows anything about the secret service.

8 Woody Harrelson

I don’t think this picture’s caption should read “Dad Thinks He Met Woody Harrelson On His Flight.” What it should really read is “Guy who kind of looks like Woody Harrelson thinks he met Guy Fieri on his flight.” Don’t you think so? The guy on the left looks more like Guy Fieri than the guy on the right looks like Woody Harrelson. The guy on right only has similar teeth to Woody Harrelson. But this person’s dad is a dead ringer for the flavortown man himself. He has the facial hair, face, and the out of style frosted tips in his hair. What are the odds that a person who thinks they met a celebrity happens to look more like a celebrity than the lookalike? This is the inception of celebrity lookalikes.

7 It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

After looking at this next picture for only less than a second, I have come to the conclusion that these people have never seen an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. However, I have come up with a few theories as to how an error as egregious as this was made. Allow me to explain. The first theory is that while these women may have never seen an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, they have heard of the show. This guy in the picture probably told these women that he plays Mac on the show and for some reason they believed him. My second theory is very simple. And that is that Mac from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the one holding the camera and taking this picture.

6 Hulkamania

Whatcha gonna do brother, when Hulkamania takes a picture with you!!! Let me hit you with some knowledge really quick. Hulk Hogan is a 12-time world champion. Hulk Hogan is the man with 24 inch pythons. Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre The Giant at WrestleMania III. For those who may not know, Andre The Giant was 7’4” tall and weighed over 500 pounds. Do you really think that the man who did all of that is this little guy in the picture? Sure, the Hulkster and this stranger both wear bandanas, have the same horseshoe mustache, and the platinum colored hair. And yes, I’m sure the camera adds 10 pounds, but come on. Unless this guy who thinks he met Hulk Hogan is over seven-feet tall, you are sadly mistaken.

5 Game Of Disappointments

Wait a minute. Did this guy really just meet Arya Stark herself, Maisie Williams? Are you kidding me? That is so not fair. Damn, some people have all the luck. If you ever have the chance to not only meet Maisie Williams, but anyone from Game of Thrones for that matter, damn straight you better tweet about it. I should preface that by saying that if you ever have the chance to meet the actual actor or actress from Game of Thrones and not a supposed “look-alike.” And if you are going to tweet the person about it, you better be sure it’s them. This guy is in for a very big surprise when he checks his Twitter mentions. Not to mention, Maisie Williams' 1.93 million Twitter followers are in for a good laugh.

4 Look What You Made Me Do

Here’s a quick tip for everybody out there who thinks that they met a celebrity. Unless you happen to meet that person in either New York or Los Angeles, chances are that it’s probably not the celebrity that you think it is. So when this next person’s friend thinks he unknowingly meets Taylor Swift, it turns out that the unknowing friend is right. Do you know what would have made this person’s friend think it was actually Taylor Swift? If this girl happened to look even somewhat like Taylor Swift! You would think that someone with 105 million Instagram followers would be more recognizable, but not in this case. It’s not the end of the world though. This guys just needs to Shake it Off.

3 Illegally Blonde

As the great Elle Woods, of the cinematic masterpiece Legally Blonde would say, “I object!” While mistaking this imposter for the real Reese Witherspoon may not be an actual criminal offense per say, I still firmly believe that this guy should face the harshest extent of the law for this egregious act, if it even was a mistake. For all we know, this guy insidiously and with great malice aforethought took a picture with someone who is clearly not Reese Witherspoon and posted it on social media for all to see. This man needs to confess and repent for such a crime. And despite what this guy may think, this picture can be considered “evidentiary support.” If this guy really thinks he met Reese Witherspoon, he must be “Legally Blind.”

2 Wolverine

For all of the haters out there who say that this is not the real Hugh Jackman, I just have one thing to say to you… Oh really? For those of you who don’t believe this picture, it is a well-known fact that Hugh Jackman likes to hang out on random street corners at night in the middle of nowhere. And if that isn’t evidence enough that this is the real Hugh Jackman, just look at how he is showing his teeth in such a manner and how he is holding out his fingers as if they are claws like the ones he uses in the X-Men movies where he plays Wolverine. If those things don’t just scream “Hugh Jackman!”, then I don’t know what does.

1 Just The Way You Are

This is one guy you would not want to catch a grenade for, seeing as how he clearly is not the real Bruno Mars. If someone comes up to you and says “aren’t you [insert celebrity name here], I’m not going to blame someone for saying yes. And this next guy definitely saw an opportunity and ran with it. Just look at where this fake Bruno Mars guy’s hand is placed in this picture. I don’t know about you, but that hand looks awfully high up if you ask me. It’s almost like he’s reaching for something *cough* *cough*. And it doesn’t help that this girl’s hand looks like she is trying to keep that guy’s hand down. And I can assure you that the real Bruno Mars would never try to pull something like that.
