People Who Thought Were Meeting Celebrities...And Were Wrong

Celebrity sights seeing is always exciting and there is nothing like running into your idols from bands, movies or TV shows on the streets and getting your dream of meeting them come true. Some people are even more adventurous and ask a celebrity they love for an autograph or a picture to cherish that moment forever and create a memory that they will want to hold on to.

However, not always in life things turn up perfect and sometimes the celebrity you thought you just met was an average person who happened to look like someone else. The result is hilarious.

Matt Damon

taringa

Everybody can get confused about celebrity names but if you actually take such a heartfelt picture with one we would at least expect you know who you are taking it with.

Hugh Laurie

upsocl

Let's be fair: even though he is not the real one, this guy really looks like Hugh Laurie, although this guy should have suspected he wasn't when he saw him in line for a Hugh Laurie concert.

Tom Cruise

famepace

This is epic and has been going through the Internet for years: some random guy was in Thailand and said he was Tom Cruise, so the owners took this picture that still stands on the place.

Morgan Freeman

elkoskilleo

Apparently, any old black guy you ran into can be Morgan Freeman if you set your racist mind to it: he is probably one of the celebrities that are most confused with real people in life.

Maisie Williams

pleated-jeans

Not only this girl looks nothing like Maisie Williams, but the fact that she tweeted this saying "Hate to break this to you buddy" makes this unbelievably epic. She is the best.

Robert Downey Jr.

redd.it

Apparently, anyone who dresses up like Robert Downey Jr and acts like him can get a lot of attention in a mall: not only he was confused by one person, but a lot of people fell for it.

Drake

imgur

If you post a picture from last night so proud to have met a celebrity, please make sure that it was the actual celebrity before you embarrass yourself posing with some random dude.

Jake Gyllenhaal

buzzive

This guy was drunk and was sure he had met the actor until he had some sleep, sobered up and woke up to realize that he had taken a very friendly photo with a stranger.

Peter Dinklage

boredpanda

Whoever thinks that any short man is actor Peter Dinklage needs to get out of the house more often or at least watch some more episodes of HBO Game of Thrones.

George RR Martin

boredpanda

This poor guy was sure he had met the writer George RR Martin but it turned out to be a homeless man who convinced him that he was, in fact, the best selling author.

Tyler The Creator

amorq

The worst thing about confusing someone with a celebrity is when you think you are meeting someone but it's actually another celebrity: poor Will Smith was confused with Tyler the creator.

Ed Sheeran

boredpanda

Anyone who looks at this guy for more than five seconds can tell that he is not Ed Sheeran, although he is rocking the red hair glasses nerdy style like he is. Close, but not close enough.

Dwight Howard

imgur

It breaks my heart to see this whole sequence: not only she was convinced and thrilled to have met Dwight Howard, but it was the star himself who had to break it to her.

Andy Samberg

getsokt

If this was in fact actor Andy Samberg, this picture would belong in a tabloid under the phrase "What the hell happened to Andy Samberg and can please someone help him?"-

Johnny Depp

noticiasaominuto

This is much funnier when you see the surprised facial expression on the girl who is posing to this absolute fake Johnny Depp in the picture. It's so cruel it is hilarious.

Morgan Freeman

shortlist

Seriously, people have to stop confusing any old black guy to Morgan Freeman, although of all the one he could have been confused with this is probably the one who looks the most like him.

Chris Pratt

taringa

This guy could be a Chris Pratt lookalike with some work, but the best part of this situation is the caption the guy added later. Luckily he did clear the air and was drunk when he thought he was meeting the actor.

Will Smith

melty

Apparently, there is no possible way to have a picture taken with Will Smith: either you think he is Tyler the creator or you just find a random guy and assume is the Prince of Bel Air.

Rod Stewart

famepace

We have to admit that even though this man is not Rod Stewart, he is really trying to look like him: who could possibly choose that hairstyle if it weren't for the musician?

Bill Murray

laguiadelvaron

What happened to Bill Murray? I mean we all know that time passes by for all of us but he really had let himself go. Oh, it's not him? Yes, that makes much more sense.

Peter Dinklage

imgur

This could be a little closer to what Peter Dinklage looks like but anyone who has seen him become a Lannister can tell that is not the real one. Stop doing this with average people, google them.

Bono

postize

This is probably the one that actually looks like the celebrity in all of the pictures we have seen. Assuming it from his face, he was looking forward to being confused with Bono from U2.

Ken Jeong

hankermag

Nothing is funnier than when the person that has to break the terrible news to the guy who thinks he's met a celebrity is the real celebrity. The hashtag #Notme just makes the whole thing funnier.

Cool black guy

viralsection

If for some reason you decided to take a picture with a random cool black guy thinking he was a celebrity and later realized he was a simple man, it works too. Who do you think he confused him for?

viralsection

awsimages

We can understand a drunk picture on your facebook profile mistaking someone for a celebrity, but this fake Ryan Gosling picture was actually in a printed magazine. Who checked this?

Macklemore

noticiasaominuto

Apparently, any white man who acts as if he is black can easily be mistaken with Macklemore: the happiness and excitement of this girls just make this much more fun.

Johnny Depp

boredpanda

If you decide to dress as a hipster one of two things could happen to your: either you will become a successful barista or many people will ask you for a picture thinking you are Johnny Depp.

Rihanna

upsocl

The whole caption "I can't breathe what is my life I just Met Rihanna" makes this hilarious. Girl, I don't know what is your life but I sure know that the woman in the picture is not RiRi.

President Bush

taringa

Not only this guy was convinced that he had met former President Bush but he also was photoshopped in the office with him to give the picture some presidential context.

Matthew McConaughey

boredpanda

This looks like the wax doll in Madame Tussaud's of actor Matthew McConaughey but there is no way someone could have confused him in real life. He is missing some bongos, of course.

Oprah

buzzbooklet

I hate to break it to you, kid, but the first suspicion that you were not meeting Queen of all Media Oprah Winfrey should have been running into her on a commercial flight. That's not how Oprah flies.

Brandon Banks

awesomeinventions

Brandon Banks apparently was not offended when this guy took a picture with someone else thinking it was him but he seems to have had a kick out of it. This is hilarious.

Macklemore again

boredpanda

Really girl? You take a picture with the most average white man on Earth thinking it's Macklemore and have the need to say that you are not big on rap? We picked up on that.

Daniel Craig

hankermag

This is so cruel and yet I'm sorry, I can't stop laughing about this: Life complete is just too much. Who had the heart to tell this woman that she took a picture with someone other than Daniel Craig?

hankermag

awesomeinventions

I can't think of anything funnier than when the real celebrity comes up and comments on these posts; if you wanted some celebrity interaction we can say at least you got it.

Zach Galifianakis

humor.fm

I stand by this girl's attitude in the picture but the guy looks nothing like the comedian Zach Galifianakis. How much alcohol did you have to drink to think he was the real deal?

Niall Horan

thiswillblowmymind

Poor Marissa, she is about to have her heart broken when someone tells her that she didn't meet her idol and she took a picture with some random happy guy. Such a sad story.

Zach Galifianakis

piximus

People need to stop thinking that any chubby man they come across in a shirt and blazer is Zach Galifianakis: and chubby men need to stop posing as if they were him.

Hank

hankermag

There is nothing like meeting Hank from Breaking bad if you actually meet him and not take a picture with some random bald man. Everyone who posted that is awesome is so, so wrong.

Drake

ucrazy

This guy is not Drake and actually looks nothing like him, but for his face, we can tell he had no problem being confused with a celebrity. That's not nice, you are playing with people's feelings.

Lenny Kravitz

boredpanda

This woman was at Coachella and thought she had met Lenny Kravitz but take a second and look at his face: he looks nothing like him. At all. Not even the hair. Please, pay attention.

George Clooney

noticiasaominuto

This man probably wanted to get some drinks after a long day at the office but didn't quite imagine that he would be confused with George Clooney. He doesn't look so pleased with it.

Marilyn Manson

notagram

If you can find any similarity to this guy with Marilyn Manson, please leave a comment below and point it for us because all we can see is another emo dude apparently happier than ever.

Obama

viralsection

This guy has some resemblance to former president Barack Obama but that's not enough to think you have met a celebrity, although the pose for the picture seems like something Obama would have done.

Tina Fey

viralsection

Apparently, all that you need to become Tina Fey is brown hair and glasses: this girl looks nothing like her if it weren't for those two things. People see what they want to see.

Vin Diesel

tiempo

This guy though he met Fast and the Furious star Vin Diesel but he does look like a mix between him and Hank from Breaking bad. He does seem happy to be confused with a celebrity.

Stan Lee

lifebuzz

For a Marvel fan, there could be nothing as exciting than meeting Stan Lee, but this is just an old man with tons of swag and some awesome glasses pretending to be him.

Usher

imgur

If you thought that this man was Usher, more than taking a picture with him you should have checked if he needed something or you could offer help by checking him into rehab or something.

Drake is everywhere

viralsection

Apparently, all you need to get a picture with Drake is imagining that any guy on the street is him and have a camera on you. Neither of these looks like him, poor Drake.

Tom Cruise

thesun

These guys seem so excited to have a picture taken with Tom Cruise, but they should have become suspicious he wasn't the real one when he was wearing the outfit from a 30-year-old movie.
