16 Stars Who Refused To Take Photos With Fans

ian-somerhalder-jennifer-lawrenceWhile there’s truth to the notion that fans make the stars, celebrities are still human beings. They don’t deserve to be treated like a commodity. We may feel that we know them, but they don’t know us.

There are a few stars who are more than happy to accommodate fans. Actors like Elijah Wood, Tom Hanks, and Cole Sprouse have even turned the celebrity photo into an art form. But there are others who just aren’t that into it.

It doesn’t matter how much money we’ve contributed to their box office earnings. Stars don’t owe us anything. Most have perfectly reasonable explanations for refusing a photo. Some just want a day to themselves or with their family. Maybe it’s just not a good time.

More accommodating celebrities have even offered an alternative interaction like a handshake, a hug, or a Q&A session, but they say that people rarely take them up on it. For this reason, several celebrities have pointed out the distinction between true fans and people who just want the bragging rights of having a photo with anyone famous.

If the stars are just like us, they deserve human decency.

18 Stars Who Are Banned From Other Countries

It might seem like celebrities get special treatment wherever they go. But all the money and fame in the world means nothing when an entire country decides they aren’t welcome.

Stars like Richard Gere, Harrison Ford, Bjork, and Jon Bon Jovi are all too familiar with how easy it is to get banned from China. All you have to do is publicly support Tibetan independence or the Dalai Lama. Canada doesn’t take kindly to DUIs which means that a good chunk of Hollywood elite, including 50 Cent, Michelle Rodriguez, and even native son Keanu Reeves are technically forbidden from crossing into The Great White North.

The actors and musicians on this list all found themselves eighty-sixed from their destinations for a variety of reasons. Often, the ban is politically motivated, particularly in nations that are ruled by strict religious law. Sometimes, the star’s over-the-top behavior is to blame. Occasionally, the celebrity in question has been convicted of a crime that the country’s government can’t abide. As far as border control is concerned, a platinum record or hit movie does not trump a police record.

Whatever the reason, it has usually resulted in the star having to cancel public appearances and change their travel plans posthaste.
