There's a couple of threads like this-
Nice & Not-so-nice celebrities
and even better:
Zelebrities that (look like) they smell

Alan "Titmarsh" and Cilly Black come to mind.
A few years ago I used to meet Cilla Black - as I lived near her - every morning and she was always very pleasant.
Never walked by without saying "Nice Morning".

I think there are a whole bunch of slebs who are, rightly or wrongly, very letigious (is that even a word, basically they sue at the drop of a hat), so whilst they may appear lovely and friendly on the surface, it may well be because they control everything that is written about them.

My sister was drinking with Vic Reeves, said he was a very nice bloke

I met Emma Crosby from GMTV whilst visiting my other half at work, she was such a nice woman, very smiley even gave her a generous tip!

Met her in Cardiff in a bar during her boozy stage a couple years back. She's actually very nice and a good laugh.

Cheryl Cole seems to exert this not-so-camoflauged spitefulness in tv appearances, even on the x factor she seems very false and mocking. She likes herself a bit too much.

Nice

Sir Bobby Robson, awesome gorgeous man
Bonehead from Oasis, even offered to Dj at my brothers
wedding
Peter Beardsley
Robson Green was very nice to me, although he does know my extended family. He even paid for my prescription in Boots one day as I'd lost my purse!
Ant and Dec are lovely met them quite a few times when they were in byker grove, not sure what they're like now
Joe Calzaghe
Howard Marks, the scary gangster dude was lovely to me, lol


OKish but slightly up their own bottoms

Alan Shearer (although I have heard some VERY unlikeable stories about him he was alright with me)
Paul Weller (although i was being a stupid simpering fan around him so can't really blame him, lol)
Cheryl Cole

Awful
Roy Keane
Heather Mills
Paul McCartney
Loads of footballers, too many to list!

I've read a lot that Anthony Cotton (who plays Sean Tully in Corrie) is not a very nice person at all, he's ignorant and rude and generally thinks the sun shines out of his backside.

From someone with connections I hear he's one of the nastiest people in Showbiz!

Funny that, I have two friends who have met Paul and have said he's an absolute sweetie! He seems a lot happier and relaxed now anyway so perhaps the person above on your list was the problem.

I used to work for an agency that dealt with a lot of celebs so did in fact meet a fair few:

Lovely ones who always made time for a chat and a laugh:
John Sessions
Claudia Winkelman
Rufus Sewell
Ralph Fiennes
John Barrowman
Johnny Vaughan
Mark Little
Rory McGrath
(there were lots and lots more but these are the ones that seemed the most natural and genuinely likeable)


Not very nice to the point of being aloof and unfriendly:
Clive Owen
Leslie Joseph
Jonathan Rhys-Myers

(again lots more but these were the worst offenders)

Clive Owen wasn't nice? What a pity, I've always liked him!
Lesley Joseph doesn't surprise me in the slightest though.

A friend of mine who works in a bank served Pierce Brosnan when he was James Bond. As he wasn't in his local branch, the computer asked her to take 2 forms of ID before allowing the transaction. She was very embarrassed, but she said he couldn't have been nicer and said he had brought ID with him as he'd had it happen before.

Have briefly met Ralph Fiennes after a play and he was very sweet and unassuming. Seemed a really nice guy.

Actually I think you're right there, the friend who i met them through says that he is much much nicer now she's not around, and I disliked her much much more than him, he was just pretty miserable when i met him. Thats nice to hear as it really shattered my impression of him. I'll look on him in a more favourable light now, lol

Oh and another to add to my list of nice people was Stella McCartney and her hubby, she made my niece and her friend dresses for their prom, how cool is that??!!

I met ozzy osbourne once many many years ago,, what a complete gent who was totally dedicated to his fans.
he was booked to come to cardiff with his band black sabbath, the gig was a sell out but was prosponed due to terrible weather, we were snowed in for about a week. the gig was re organised for a later date and the stupid people at the ticket office resold all the tickets and on the night all the people who bought original tickets turned up along with all the people who had bought tickets for the resceduled gig., not wanting to disappoint anyone, the band played two gigs that night with a 20minute break inbetween. after the gigs he cameout front afterwards to personally appoligise to all the fans for the mixup and spent an hour signing autographs. Ive always wondered if he remembered that night, it was in the winter of 198o/81.

David Coulthard - a bit distant but very polite and courteous
Jacques Villeneuve - highly strung. It seems like he tries to be nice but doesn't have much patience
David Tennant - absolutely lovely, when I saw him he was being mobbed by kids and took loads of time to do autographs and photos.
Thom Yorke - I spotted him in Oxford HMV years back. I was asking him if he knew where something was when I suddenly recognised him. His face fell and he practically sprinted away! I'm sorry I scared him, he seemed like a nice guy!
Alex James - on my way to work one morning he was walking down the high street in a wet shirt swigging from a wine bottle. He was very smiley and offered me a sip! I declined.
Alex Ferguson - I wrote a letter asking for tickets to take my little brother to a match for his birthday which was a bit cheeky, but I got a note back from AF and a birthday card signed by the current team - Giggs, Keane, Ince, etc, which made my brothers birthday and was very kind.

I've met quite a few celebs at stage doors and various conventions/fan events and film premieres and feel lucky that I've not met anyone who could be considered "mean" (although I find Morgan Freeman's hands-off attitude toward fans disappointing...if you ever see him, don't expect more than a wave). But ones who really stood out as going the extra mile for fans:

Johnny Depp
Jack Nicholson
Kate Winslet
John Barrowman
Catherine Tate
Philip Glenister
Eve Myles
Christian Bale

I want to give gold stars to Winslet and Nicholson becase it was a December when I met Winslet and a January when I met Nicholson. It was absolutely freezing but they still stayed outside signed autographs for ages.
See I've seen interviews with Philip Glenister and always thought he'd be a very scary one to ask for an autograph
Still totally in love with him though so it's nice to hear he's really nice
Found out the other day that both my friend's Dad and her uncle have been extras in Life On Mars- she said they thought Phil and John Simm were REALLY friendly and nice- they signed autographs for both my friend and her best friend Bit jealous now though...

James Martin was really nice when he signed a cookbook for me at Castle Howard

Monty Don (gardener's world) and Charlie Dimmock were really nice
Emma Atkins (emmerdale), Blair Mcdonough (neighbours), Scarlet Johnson (eastenders) were really nice when I got their autographs in the local panto and answered loads of fan questions.

The pop groups US5 and Big Brovaz came to my school and were really great with us

Gawd I LOVE name-dropping!

Gary Barlow has always been lovely every time I have met him, as has Mark Owen, Robbie seemed ok but this was some years ago I have heard from people that he can be a bit rude if he's in a bad mood, most of the celebs I've met have been really nice, Kim Woodburn from How Clean is your House (if you call her a celeb sort of thing!) was really lovely - she was doing a book signing and my friend and I wanted to go and see what she looked like in real life, there wasn't anyone waiting so we ended up getting her book between us and getting it signed. Hugh Grant was also wonderful!!!
