A long time ago, you could say that you met someone famous and people would simply have to take your word for it.
But now that essentially everybody has a camera at all times, you're probably going to have a hard time convincing people unless you have proof to back it up.
Caveman Circus compiled some pictures of people who were lucky enough to have their phones on them when they ran into a celebrity, which would have been fantastic news if the "famous" people they posed with weren't random people who looked kind of like movie stars, athletes and musicians.
A few of the people in these pictures appear to be intoxicated. I'm sure that had nothing to do with the mistakes.
How dumb do you have to be to think that's Peter Dinklage? It's obviously Wee Man.
That's not Macklemore. It might be Ryan Lewis, and I only say that because nobody knows what Ryan Lewis looks like.
I still can't believe it either.
I thought it was common knowledge that Fat Drew Carey doesn't exist anymore. It looks like someone hasn't watched "The Price Is Right" since Bob Barker left.
This guy has definitely tried to convince someone that he's Jake Gyllenhaal at least once in his life.
I once convinced someone I was Danilo Gallinari by being tall and white. I can understand how this happened.
When someone tells you that you look like George Clooney, you keep your mouth shut and keep riding the wave.
More like "Legally Blind!" Get it? Because that's not Reese Witherspoon, and she was in that one mov-- forget it.
He really should have had it.
Definitely not Johnny Depp. Possibly Dave Grohl.
He really is the truest fan of all.
Even if he's not actually Common, you can still tell people that he is.
In fairness, I can totally see Russell Crowe hanging out at an Applebee's.
That's actually the guy who played Freddy in "Friday The 13th," but at least they got the "old white guy" part right.
How long do you think this guy spends applying this tattoo before going out? Probably longer than he should. I really hope it's not permanent.
He was close enough.
I would have been more excited about meeting Nick Kroll on the right.
