7 People Reveal How Disappointing Celebrities Can Actually Be In Person

I've got some devastating news for you: The celebrities you think you know and love may, in fact, not be so awesome in real life.

I know. It's tragic. Take a second to let it sink in.

Sure, you think you may know someone because you've watched him or her in every single episode of that one show, or because you read up on his or her every move in tabloid magazines.

But, these seven Redditors are revealing the sad, horrific truth that not all celebrities are created equal, and some are just total dicks. Check out their stories of celebrity encounters gone wrong.

(NOTE: Take all of these stories with a huge grain of salt. These are stories from people on the Internet, after all.)

Bill Clinton apparently doesn't live up to the hype...

Ryan Gosling allegedly loves to shoplift...

Bill Cosby is not all about the kids...

Maybe Jason Segal is a germaphobe...

Bill Nye the "not so nice" Science Guy...

Note to self: Never give Pauly Shore your number.
