"Who are you again?"
Whether your job is acting or making pizza, it would be extremely annoying if, every day, random people came up to you and asked, "Who are you? What do you do? Will you pose for a picture?" Famous people have to deal with the same routine bullshit that we all have to put up with. Yet, for the average person, encountering a famous person can be so exciting, they don't stop to wonder if that celebrity might be having a crappy day before handing them a phone so they can wish someone they've never met a happy birthday.
An interviewer at the Toronto Film Festival asked a bunch of celebrities the craziest things they routinely hear from people on the street. It's pretty funny, and gives you an idea of why a celebrity might act a little standoffish in public. What's surprising is that more of them don't flip out at people on a daily basis.
