Have you ever been walking down the street and seen someone famous? It's a rare occurrence but it does happen! Seeing your favorite celebrity in a casual setting can be both cool and terrifying. You want to ask them for an autograph or a picture, but you don't want to disrupt their day.
Most celebrities don't mind taking a moment out of their day to say hello, but there are others who will flat out refuse to take a selfie with you.
1. Miley Cyrus
The coach on The Voice says it's her awkwardness that stops her from taking pictures.
“I get embarrassed to take pictures. That’s actually the truth. I’m so embarrassed, because people are taking pictures of me, and I just don’t know how to — I don’t know how to smile and just be awkward, so I stick my tongue out, because I don’t know what else to do,” she explained.
2. Amy Poehler
Poehler finds selfies to be extremely narcisisstic, and doesn't even like when her friends take her picture.
"The idea of, ‘This is my face and everyone needs to see it all the time,’ is so far from the privacy that people used to seek,” she said. “If I’m hanging out with a friend, and they take a picture of me, it’s like, ‘Ugh.’ I mean, I hate looking at pictures of myself. It immediately takes me out of the experience.”
3. Justin Bieber
The pop megastar says he feels like a prop when fans want to take pictures with him, because they just want proof instead of a connection.
“If you happen to see me out somewhere, know that I’m not gonna take a picture. I’m done taking pictures," he told fans. “It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human. I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity. I realize people will be disappointed, but I don’t owe anybody a picture. And people who say, ‘But I bought your album,’ know that you got my album and you got what you paid for — AN ALBUM! It doesn’t say in fine print whenever you see me you also get a photo.”
4. Emma Watson
The Beauty and the Beast and Harry Potter star says for her, not taking pictures with fans is a safety precaution.
“For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not. If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. [The public] can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data. I’ll say, ‘I will sit here and answer every single Harry Potter fandom question you have but I just can’t do a picture.'”
