One thing which is straight is that the fans make the celebrities, they admire them, they love them and they follow them. But there are some popular celebrities who don’t like to take selfies with their fans which could sometimes hurt their fans. Check out the list and what they said on this:
“This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the s– out of me. Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said, ‘No, it’s America and we paid for you.’ This was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes, legally you are allowed to take a picture of me, But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take pictures with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville.” – She posted on her Instagram account.
He told The Guardian, “It feels like being Bieber or something. You just have to [decline] otherwise you start feeling like a mannequin.”
In 2013, she told CNN, “It used to be I didn’t want to go out, I didn’t want to go to dinner. If I went to dinner, I was wrapped up and then I was like, you know what? I don’t have to do it. I can just say no, and that’s helped a lot. So, it is hard because you don’t want to feel rude, because they’re people, but at the same time, I have to defend my life and my mental wellness.”
She told Vanity Fair, “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. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data… For me, it’s the difference between being able to have a life and not.”
She told Nylon, “I still don’t feel like I owe anyone anything. If I don’t want a picture one day, I don’t have a problem saying no. I know some people get really weird about that, like, ‘You’re so mean.’ But if I was really in love with someone, I wouldn’t just want a picture. I would want to hang out with them.”
Ian addressed the crowd. “Hey guys, listen. No, no, stop. Everybody, listen, I love you guys. I’m not taking a single photo today; it’s my day…”
Afterward, one fan tweeted: “the time it took ian somerhalder to rant at those fans he could have taken pictures and walked away.”
He has Been so harsh on the opinion of taking selfies with the fans.
She told Glamour, “With social media, so much of our lives I feel like is a projection of who we want to be or who we wish we were. And I refuse to buy into that, especially for younger generations… The more we allow a certain projection, the more we’re feeding a generation to distance themselves from self-awareness and self-realization, which I think will create a lot of issues for them on a personal level later on in life.”
He told Larry King, “I try to say very simply to somebody: I’m with my kids, have a great day.’ So at least they know I’m concerned about their wellbeing and hope that they have an enjoyable day, but I don’t want to steal time from my children.”
She told The New York Times, “Now what I do — because this is how I live — when someone approaches me and says, ‘Can I have your autograph,’ I say: ‘No, I’ve retired from that part of the business. I just act now.’”
“I say: ‘What’s your name? I touch them. I look at them. I have a real exchange… I’m not an actor because I want my picture taken. I’m an actor because I want to be part of the human exchange.”
Emily told Vanity Fair that, “Frances McDormand told [Blunt and husband, John Krasinksi]… when someone asks her for a picture, she says, ‘You know what? I’ve actually retired from that. But I would like to shake your hand and meet you.’”.
Metallica frontman James Hetfield told iHeartRadio, “I used to get so worried that if I say, ‘No. My kids are here, I’m enjoying a family moment,’ that they’ll turn around and say, ‘You’re a dick! What a rock star!”
Prince Harry and William
At a 2015 event, a fan reported that the future Duke of Sussex gave her a short lecture during their brief interaction, saying, “No, I hate selfies. Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you’re young, but selfies are bad. Just take a normal photograph.”
In an occasionally third-person Facebook screed, Lee insisted that, “[fans will] probably tell ya that he’s a down to earth grateful life lovin dude and a nice guy too. What I have a problem with is… Taking pictures! I hate it!… You dont admire something so that it can give back… You just cherish it!… I’m not here to take pictures with you, I’m here to entertain you!”
In a June 2017 interview with Cigar Aficionado, Chris said, “I’ve always been a pretty deferential, go-with-the-flow guy. But now I have to be economical with my time… If I go out and want to do normal things, I have to be comfortable disappointing people.”
“I just don’t take pictures with people. Because that’s not about enjoying the moment; it’s about stealing the moment to brag about later.” Pratt is happy to meet a fan, but finds they’re rarely satisfied with interacting on his terms. “So, I say, ‘Would you settle for a handshake?’ And then they take the picture anyway.”
“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.” – Justin posted on his Instagram account.
