Here’s How 5 Celebrities Treat Retail Workers, According To The Employees Who Helped Them

Chris Pratt isn't exactly a nice guy.

“If you do your shopping in a major city, then there’s a slight chance you might catch sight of somebody famous inside one of the stores. However, if you work in that store, then helping celebs on the daily might feel like just a normal part of the job.”

Recently, BuzzFeed asked to the retail workers in its community to tell their experiences about the times celebs came into their stores.

1 – Taylor Swift

“When I was in college, I worked at a small grocery store during the summer, and Taylor Swift came in to buy some baking supplies. She was very sweet and soft spoken, and she took a picture with a little girl who was shopping with her grandma. When she came to the register, the cashier next to me checked her out. When she asked if Taylor wanted paper or plastic, she looked behind her to her security like she was afraid she was going to choose the wrong one. Eventually, she went with paper bags.”

2 – Chris Pratt

“I used to work for a big trip destination museum in my state. We had a lot of famous people come by. Personally, I never saw or interacted with them, but some coworkers did. The most memorable were James Corden, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, and Chris Pratt. They were filming something for Corden’s show that tied into the Lego movies. At the same time, we were also having a high-intensity crowd day — lots and lots of people — so a few of my coworkers were asked to dress up in our character costumes. These ‘characters’ interacted with the celebs throughout the day. Most of them were super nice and gave them high fives, but Chris Pratt absolutely hated them.”

“He wouldn’t even look at them. Other coworkers later said that they saw the group walking around outside, and while most gave out waves, gave hugs, and posed for pictures, Pratt acted annoyed and pushed off. I’m actually glad I didn’t get the chance to meet him.”

3 – Gal Gadot

“Gal Gadot came to a shop I worked at in Tel Aviv. She was looking for a Hamsa (a token against the evil eye in Israel and the Middle East). It wasn’t my shift, but I heard she was super sweet and down to earth.”

4 – Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz

“When I worked at a now-closed home linens store in Studio City, California, in the late ’90s/early 2000s, we were very close to some of the television studios, so we’d regularly get different television actors in our store. Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz came in the store a few times as well. I was a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fan, so everyone was told that if they came in while I was in the store, I was to be called immediately. Honestly, the actors that came into our store were some of the most pleasant customers I remember.”

5 – Michael Bublé

“I used to work at Banana Republic, and Michael Bublé came in once with his bodyguard. I was helping him pick out V-neck sweaters, and he said he and his bodyguard were having a disagreement and asked for my help. They were arguing about whether having visible chest hair in a V-neck is sexy or not.”

“I had a whole conversation with him about it. Overall, he was just the nicest, most down-to-earth guy.”
