The other day, Redditor u/AccomplishedDrag7526 asked, "Who is one celebrity nobody hates?" and people shared tons of celebs basically everyone loves — and some even revealed their real-life encounters with them. Here are some of the most fascinating responses:

1.Steve Burns

<div><p>"I went to a panel that he spoke at, and I was sobbing like a baby, especially when we sang the goodbye song. Someone asked if he looked up to Steve from <i>Blue's Clues</i>, his character, and he said that for years with a lot of his mental health issues, he never asked for help, and he finally realized that Steve from <i>Blue's Clues</i> always asked for help from everybody. <b>He said he learned that he had to ask for help like Steve.</b> This is one of the most difficult things for me to do — to ask for help. I was SOBBING, DUDE."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/UnitysBlueTits;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/UnitysBlueTits</a></p></div><span> Nickelodeon</span>

2.Fred Rogers (aka, Mister Rogers)

<div><p>"I met him when I was a young punk working in a video rental store. He was truly truly a saint. <b>He chatted with us for a while and treated me and my coworker with the same respect and love that he treated everyone on his show.</b> As he left, he told us he was proud to have such fine upstanding young men as his neighbors. One of my favorite memories."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Double-hokuto;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/Double-hokuto</a></p><p>"My dad was a general manager at a country club in Pittsburgh he was a frequent guest at. <b>Fred Rogers would play bawdy sea chanties at the piano for the staff while they cleaned up after big events just to be nice/thank them.</b> He knew it was funny for Mister Rogers to be cheekily dirty, so he always did it."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Watts-all-the-Ruckus;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/Watts-all-the-Ruckus</a></p></div><span> Fotos International / Getty Images</span>

3.Julie Andrews

<div><p>"I actually went on tour with Julie for two weeks. It was one of those <i>An Evening With…</i> type things. By the first day, she knew all the crews names, chatted with everyone, telling stories and asking about our lives. By the third show she was the 'crew mom,' making sure we were all getting enough rest and food. She literally stopped a rehearsal when our breakfast was late being delivered, so we could all go and eat. <b>And on the last show, she gave us all hugs, a bottle of whiskey, and a handwritten letter saying thank you</b>. It’s the only time once a show ended that we were all a bit sad because we wouldn’t see her again. Beautiful woman inside and out."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/never_rage_quit;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/never_rage_quit</a></p><p>"My aunt met Julie Andrews working on a production. <b>She told us the story about how another cast member spoke to staff (and especially runners like my aunt) like dirt. Andrews obviously had been clocking this, and my aunt overheard her giving the other lady a stern talking to.</b> She was basically telling her (in a kind but firm, motherly tone) something along the lines that being in a position like theirs is a gift — that they are no more talented or special than thousands of other actors and performers who just didn’t get their break, and it’s the goodwill of fans and staff that keep them where they are. It’s a position of luxury and they have a responsibility to act and serve with dignity and gratitude. All delivered in a kind motherly tone with a hint of 'If I catch you again…’ My aunt always loved her even more for that. She always noted how she used the term ‘serve,’ and it stuck with her. Plus, if Julie Andrews is telling you to stop being a bitch, you really need to take note!"</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Wanallo221;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/Wanallo221</a></p></div><span> NBC / NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images</span>

4.Steve Buscemi

<div><p>"He seems super nice. We trick-or-treat in the same neighborhood every year, and he nearly always dresses up to hand out candy and is great with all the kids."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/cellrdoor2;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/cellrdoor2</a></p><p>"Met the man once; his son’s band at the time opened for my ex’s band. We were up chilling in the balcony when I look past my friend and see him — he’s the only celeb who's actually made me nervous, and working in the restaurant/bar industry, you meet and chat with a lot of famous people. <b>This man waited until the whole show ended — not just when his son’s band was done — and stood around for 30+ minutes chatting it up with my ex’s band and all of us</b>, just so genuinely sweet and warm and excited about music. He’s my forever fave celeb encounter."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/heydelinquent;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/heydelinquent</a></p></div><span> Maria Moratti / Getty Images</span>

5.Betty White

<div><p>"I was lucky enough to work with Betty White, so I got to see her in an environment where she didn't need to be nice or focus on her public image; she could be herself — and she was exactly the same: <b>a glowing smile, always on the edge of a laugh, and always looking for a way to make you happy.</b> She lived for other people's joy. It was manna to her. Betty was one-of-a-kind. It wouldn't be possible to dislike her."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/bigboyg;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/bigboyg</a></p><p>"I remember where I was when she died. Girlfriend and I were walking out of a supermarket, and she got the notification on her phone. She exclaimed, 'Oh my god! Oh my god! Oh no!' I panicked and thought something happened to her family. Then she told me. Somehow I felt even worse."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/m1v5s6c38;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/m1v5s6c38</a></p></div><span> Amanda Edwards / WireImage / Getty Images</span>

6.Dolly Parton

<div><p>"I saw her in concert at the Hollywood Bowl; she’s amazing. Her show was 1/3 dirty jokes and the rest music — and she plays every instrument."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Wooden_Painting3672;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/Wooden_Painting3672</a></p></div><span> Taylor Hill / Getty Images</span>

7.Brendan Fraser

<div><p>"Never heard an unkind word about him. Haven't heard a single complaint about his comeback. Even Leonardo DiCaprio <a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:apparently loves him;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">apparently loves him</a> because he was the only guy who never treated him like the new kid on the block."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/JLHFan95;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/JLHFan95</a></p></div><span> Momodu Mansaray / Getty Images</span>

8.Dick Van Dyke

<div><p>"My dad met him once and said he came into the store in sweats as casual as can be and wanted to buy a VCR. Said he was in town on business. My dad was super excited as Van Dyke is one of his favorite actors. <b>He asked him if he could come back the next day to sign his copy of <i>Chitty Chitty Bang Bang</i>. Van Dyke actually did come back the next day to do so.</b> My dad told me he was super down-to-earth and kind."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Breakinfinity;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/Breakinfinity</a></p></div><span> Paul Morigi / Getty Images</span>

9.Christina Applegate

<div><p>"Watching Season 3 of <i>Dead to Me</i>. Her acting is riveting, the emotion coming out of her is too raw and real to be just acting. She seems to be pouring out her soul from her recent MS diagnosis. She is amazing and has suffered so much. On a brighter note, her portrayal of Kelly Bundy (<i>Married... with Children</i>) had me riveted as a teenager for so many other reasons. She left an impact. She’s had quite a career and life arc. I hope the rest of her years are kind to her."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/GetBent4Real;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/GetBent4Real</a></p></div><span> Jon Kopaloff / Getty Images</span>

10.David Tennant

<div><p>"I met DT back in the day when he was performing at a theater I worked in. This was after <i>Casanova</i>, but before <i>Doctor Who</i> had been announced. <b>He was a lovely bloke, really friendly and generous with his time</b> (I was in the marketing team, so we were often asking things of him). He's a great guy as far as I know."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/SanguinePar;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/SanguinePar</a></p></div><span> David M. Benett / Dave Benett / Getty Images for GOOD the play</span>

11.Weird Al Yankovic

<div><p>"He's the nicest guy. When I was 12, I was in the hospital with brain tumors. <b>Al called my hospital room, sent me a care package, and invited me backstage</b> at a few concerts that summer."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/ElderCunningham;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/ElderCunningham</a></p><p>"He is truly a unique human being! I have been a fanatic since I heard his works on the Dr. Demento radio show when I was a child. I have nothing but love and respect for Al and his career and artwork, and now, my children love him and have been able to see him in concert as of this year. Heck, my mom likes him, and we do not agree on almost any music, other than '50s, '60s, and Al. Also, <i>UHF</i> is one of my favorite comedy movies ever!"</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/tonyburkhart;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/tonyburkhart</a></p></div><span> Slaven Vlasic / Getty Images for The Roku Channe</span>

12.LeVar Burton

<div><p>"I met him at a con years ago and can attest that <b>he is an amazing person</b>. He's charismatic and very kind."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/Hippiechic629;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/Hippiechic629</a></p><p>"I had the double whammy of growing up with both <i>Reading Rainbow</i> and <i>Star Trek: The Next Generation</i> at the same time. The first played on the elementary school TV that was rolled in on a huge cart. The second came on at 4 p.m., and I never missed it."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/brymc81;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/brymc81</a></p></div><span> Jamie Mccarthy / Getty Images for Tribeca Festival</span>

13.John Candy

<div><p>"I was just watching a <a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:video;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">video</a> where Conan O'Brien was talking about how when he was in college he met John Candy and got to give him a personal tour of Harvard. He said he was a really nice guy and was cracking jokes the whole time, and he gave Conan some advice on comedy and being a writer. He even took a photo of Conan, and Conan received the photo several years later from John's family after he died. Seemed like a genuine nice and funny person."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/DemandZestyclose7145;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/DemandZestyclose7145</a></p></div><span> Ron Galella, Ltd. / Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images</span>

14.Paul Rudd

<div><p>"I saw him in one of those <a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:'Celebrities Read Mean Tweets';elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">'Celebrities Read Mean Tweets'</a> things on <i>Kimmel </i>once. Sometime tweeted, 'Paul Rudd is the most boring vanilla dude. You know he just sits at home with his wife having a bland spaghetti dinner, talking about his day.' I love Paul Rudd, and he seemed to think it was hilarious."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/pinkpanda376;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/pinkpanda376</a></p><p>"If a golden retriever were a person, it'd be Paul Rudd."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/lowtoiletsitter;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/lowtoiletsitter</a></p></div><span> Bruce Glikas / Getty Images</span>

15.Rick Moranis

<div><p>"I know someone who worked very closely with him for decades and can confirm: <b>he's genuinely very kind</b>."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/blindsight;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/blindsight</a></p><p>"What a saint. I’ve loved every Moranis film I’ve seen, and I love them even more knowing <a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:his story;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">his story</a> (his wife died of cancer, and he left the industry at the height of his career to be a full-time dad to his kids).

And finally...

16.Henry Winkler

<div><p>"I met him once, and he was so genuine and lovely. Even though there were a bunch of people trying to get his attention, <b>he took time with every person and made them feel special</b>. Also, when Betty White died and someone on Twitter suggested that he should be the nation's grandpa in her stead, he <a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:retweeted;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">retweeted</a> it with, 'We are all going for Ice Cream … get your coats,' and that's the kind of energy I want in the world."</p><p>—<a href="" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:u/neondino;elm:context_link;itc:0" class="link ">u/neondino</a></p></div><span> David Livingston / Getty Images</span>
