She is bipolar and many of them are good at turning on the charm when they have to.

I just got back from LA last Summer and had a limo driver furnished to us that was a "driver of the stars."

When we asked who the nicest people he had driven were, Linda Hamilton came up right away!

Kanye West doesn't surprise me.
Maybe its the same deal as with Megan Ryan. Maybe she's just insecure or wound too tight and just comes off bad because she's ill at ease in public?

But the most perfect celebrity I've ever encountered is probably George Clooney. He's not only charming and funny and gracious, but listens to you so attentively that you start to feel he's absolutely fascinated by what you're saying.
His dad is a very personable guy. I've never heard anyone say anything bad about him.

I do agree to a certain extent about celebrities being public property. I remember a while back Kate Winslet was filming a movie in my area and fans were furious that she wouldn't come over and visit with them between takes. I thought it was ridiculous because she was in the middle of working, she was probably trying to stay in character and focus. After they wrapped filming for the day she spent an hour signing autographs and taking pictures, but it's just unreal the way some people expect celebrities to drop everything, especially when fans are being inconsiderate.

Maybe she was a perfect fit for "Mommie Dearest" after all. I liked her acting though.

When I was about 5 years old I met John Stamos at Disney World in the Hollywood Tower of terror ride. I think he was taking some leisure time when his wife at the time was on the Rosie O'donelle. He was very nice to my family and I. I got a picture with him however I didn't quite realize it was 'uncle Jesse' so I was staring up at him in the picture. I didn't realize it was him until he left! I'm 20 now, and 15 years have passed. I don't know if he's still as nice, but I sure hope so! I hate it when celebrities are snobby.

Yes especially with the male pop stars. I guess they're often younger girls that do that with them but there is no excuse for this behavior. Some of them expect them to be nice to their fans all the time no matter what the fans do. Sorry but if someone's trying to grope me or stalking me, I'm sure not going to be nice and if it's a regular thing I'm going to question the fanbase in general because when there's so many people doing this crap how do you know what everyone's intentions are? The irony is these are people that claim they love them.

Mariah Carey
I met Mariah back in 2002 at a Dallas music studio. She was actually a very talkative, nice person. All-in-all I spent an hour or so in the same room with her. I remember she gives a firm handshake and looks at you directly in the eyes when speaking. She was chatty and funny as well. Also, photos do her no justice. She is beautiful in person and much thinner than the camera shows.

Sarah Palin
She did a book signing at my job. I am politically not a fan of hers but she seemed nice. She really didn't chat much with anyone but her own staff. I am indifferent to her as a person but at least she seemed pleasant. I do remember she required Diet Dr Pepper with straws lol.

Neil Patrick Harris - I met him after his Doogie Howser days and before his HIMYM fame. We were checking into a hotel at the same time and I gawked at him. (I had a crush on Doogie, what can I say?) He obliged me with a hug and an autograph. He was very sweet.

Scott Wolf - I met him when "Party of Five" was still a big thing. He was a sweetheart. Amazingly good looking but a little on the short side.
