You become REALLY famous...

Post by ICW » September 7th, 2016, 2:29 pm

Let's say you become a REALLY famous celebrity. You're internationally known, the paps are all over every move you make, you can't step out without disguising yourself, etc...

...would you be inclined to stop for fans (no matter the venue), make appearances at conventions, etc.? Or would you do whatever it took to be left alone? Or would you only stop whenever you felt like it?

Stop intermittently as I feel the need. Dealers can suck a cock. Fans can have any combos they ask for when I decide to stop. Good luck marks

I'd hate being famous. I dislike being at work not even being able to go the bathroom (on my time off) without a customer, who knows me, asking for me to find them something or help. I am a small fish, so to speak, I would hate having that times thousands of people asking me for something.

I'd stop most of the time. I am sure there is going to be a time or two that I do not. I like Greg's idea about asking trivia questions.

You can say you will do this or that but unless you are truly living it you have no idea how you would truly react.

Absolutely. I'd sign for just about anyone and as much as they had as long as they are nice and polite.
make appearances at conventions
I'm already a fan of them, so yes.

Asking trivia questions as a means to create a positive and fun memory for fans is fine, but asking trivia questions as a means to lord over people and suss out "true" fans is just being a total prick. There's people I'm a fan of but don't know every single facet of their being.

Here's my take if I was REALLY famous. If I didn't have previous history in meeting athletes and celebrities I would be hesitated, but I do have previous history so it would be hard for me to be a dick to someone wanting an autograph or a photo. We all know how it feels to be turned down by a celebrity. So I couldn't just stand there and be a prick to someone knowing how it feels.

maybe so Austin, but there will come a time when even you will grow tired and weary of hearing "one more! one more!" because there's always one more, and it becomes endless.

I'd only do it to truly nutty or annoying people. I'd do the photo anyway, but the chance to make them sweat would be too much to ignore! :random:

By that standard offering opinion on any topic that you havent personally experienced would be disqualified. I dont think one has to personally experience it, though it definitely helps and can provide new perspective, to offer an opinion especially when it concerns how that person would react to certain situations. I am an expert of myself.

I'd probably be like Ryan Reynolds, unless I found the chick really hot or the approach made me laugh.
