Celebrities often have to pose for staged photos on red carpets in front of hundreds of cameras. They often have to watch every word that they say, in an effort to avoid the media misconstruing what they mean. It seems every moment of their lives is under a microscope. So it's really refreshing when you see them keeping it real, especially when they don't have to.
It can be incredibly revealing of a celeb's character when they go out of their way to make something special happen for fans or regular folks who don't necessarily even ask them to. Here are some examples of those awesome moments that have happened in recent years.
1. Bill Murray making some bro's bachelor party in South Carolina
Bill Murray gave this epic advice to a bunch of bros in South Carolina about bachelor parties and choosing a bride. He said if you travel around the world with this woman and go places that are "hard to get to and hard to get out of"... if you still love her when you return, marry her "at the airport." He then proceeds to pick the bachelor up on his shoulders with the help of the other bros. This one will go down in history as one of the best moments a celeb has had with his or her fans. Check out the full video here at Deadspin.
There were multiple other Bill Murray moments but this one takes the cake, in my humble opinion.
2. Bachelors got Bill Murray, but these bachelorettes got Gerard Butler!
Switching gears here to the ladies, while visiting Australia, Scottsman Gerard Butler took some goofy photos with some bachelorettes including the one above, where it looks like he taught them how to keep an eye out on the open sea.
He also snapped a cute photo with the bride-to-be:
3. Serena Williams crashed a couple's wedding at the beach in Miami
Serena was just chilling on the beach in Miami, killing it in a leopard print bathing suit per usual, when she came across a couple getting married. She took the above epic photo which I'm sure made the entire wedding at least 5 times as legit. What a great way to start your life together!
4. Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé, a.k.a. 2/3 of Destiny's Child crashed a private karaoke party in Miami
For some reason, it seems like a lot of this kind of stuff happens in Miami. And why not? It's one of the best party cities in the world! It's safe to say the two biggest (only? Sorry, Michelle) stars to emerge from pop supergroup Destiny's Child made these ladies' night, clearly.
5. In 2011, a few years before he became notorious, Justin Bieber crashed a wedding with Selena Gomez after hearing them play his music
Earlier I mentioned that this kind of thing happens in Miami, but maybe it's just a beach thing. This magical wedding-crashing by a younger, less ridiculous Justin Bieber probably surprised everyone at the party. As Bieber and Gomez went for an evening stroll, they overheard the music of the boy himself. The rest was history.
6. Beyoncé also crashed a wedding in Italy, and looked flawless in the process
The scene: It was Potofino, Italy.
According to Daily Mail, Jay-Z and Yoncé decided to go inside a church and check things out. There just happened to be a wedding going on, but nobody was upset about them barging in. The beautiful bride took some amazing photos with Queen Bey and yet another magical moment went down.
7. Not to say this photo of John Travolta with this wedding party isn't awkward, because it is, but it's still epic
There's no way that I can deny this wedding photo is awkward. John Travolta's hand placement is all kinds of messed up. But hey, according to Huffington Post, he met this couple the night before at a bar and said he would show up to their wedding. A man of his word, Travolta showed.
8. Trainwreck star LeBron James crashed a wedding at the Ritz-Carlton in Coconut Grove
LeBron James is everywhere these days... this was a while ago, back when the King was still playing in Miami, but he showed his face at the wedding of Jamie and Shaun Kolnick. Clearly, they were stoked.
9. Brad Pitt hits up a Buckinghamshire wedding and takes epic photo with bride and groom
If Brad Pitt comes to your wedding, you better be holding a drink like the groom is in this photo. It's the only way to soften the blow of potentially losing your bride to one of the sexiest men on the planet. I'm sure Brad stayed faithful to Angelina and all, but really though, this moment in the U.K. must have been special.
10. Most recently, Robert Pattinson crashed a wedding in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland has had its fair share of turmoil in the past, but Robert Pattinson showing up to Tom and Sarah's wedding at Culloden Hotel was one of its lighter moments. This happened August 30th, so quite recently.
