Your Guide To The Nicest Celebs In Hollywood

  • Rachel McAdams may be known for her role in Mean Girls, but apparently she's nothing but a sweetheart. Some of our team members can vouch for this fact.

  • It's no shocker that Neil Patrick Harris is a delight.

  • Drew Barrymore is nothing but bubbly and cute in her films, so I'm not surprised that she's like that offscreen.

  • Even though I'll never forgive him for hurting Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt is apparently a doll.

  • After this picture was tweeted, Steve Martin wrote, "I hate my life." Turns out, it's all in good fun, and he's a gentleman through and through.

  • Guy Ritchie is supposedly a cool dude, but I don't know if you can be remotely normal if you've been married to Madonna.

  • Of course Elton John is a damn gem.

  • Johnny Depp is a great guy too, but he'll never be as great as when he dated Kate Moss.

  • Tom Hanks has never been in the press for a negative reason. A true Hollywood rarity.

  • Jon Hamm was a d-bag about Kim Kardashian so I don't know if I like him. But "anonymous commenter" does.

Considering most of the celebrities I write about on here tend to make the news for not necessarily the most flattering reasons, it’s refreshing to talk about Hollywood’s elite who have become known for their positive qualities. And these “positive qualities” I refer to have nothing to do with money, power or talent, but rather just plain niceness.

The fine (and always informative) folks at Jezebel drew my attention to a blog that’s making quite a splash called Crazy Days and Nights. The site is allegedly written by an entertainment lawyer who dissects the ins and outs of the Hollywood scene. But the real draw to the site is an anonymous commenter, who has brought a few bizarre things to light. These things involve prostitution, pedophiles and some really horrifying abuse. You know, just a day in the life.

Anyway, this commenter (who Jezebel suspects is potentially Robert Downey Jr.) obviously has their finger on the pulse of the industry. They shared a list of a few people who they actually consider nice in Hollywood. “They have flaws and are not perfect, but they are GREAT people who are the opposite of the other sick f*cks,” he says. Without further adieu, click through the gallery for a list of Tinseltown’s finest who don’t completely suck.

    You clearly do not work in the business.  Take Elton John and Johnny Depp, off the list,

    I work in film & tv. Here’s my list of cool cats. I’ve actually interacted with these people as a crew member:

    Dan Akroyd
    Ed Helms
    Jason Segel
    Sienna Miller
    Laura Linney
    Jody Foster
    Gael Garcia Benal
    Romany Malco
    Catherine Zeta-Jones
    Hayden Christensen

    and the coolest cat ever is Steve Buscemi. Steve came to a wrap party for a film he was in, and actors never go to wrap parties. We invited him to go out with us after the party, and he did…to three bars…until 4:30 am. The best!

    second place goes to Robin Williams. While he was always cool and accommodating to the crew, this anecdote takes the cake. We were on location up the street from an elementary school. One day about a hundred kids from the school stood across the street from the set. As Robin was walking from his trailer to the set, the kids began screaming for him. Robin walked right to them without breaking his stride. He took pictures, signed autographs, and goofed around with the kids & the neighbors who emerged after hearing the hulabaloo. What an awesome guy.

      I met Steve Buscemi at the Cleveland Film festival. He was by far the nicest film star i have ever come into contact with. Tilda Swinton was with him and she was pretty friendly too!

    I’ve delt with a number of celebrities who visit Hawaii and can add that Elton John, Jason Segal, Drew Barrymore, Rachel McAdams and George Clooney were always professional, engaging and unpretentious.

  • Reblo

    I want to hear more. But I’m sorry, I can’t. I just CAN’T get on board with Brad Pitt. He seems like a giant asshole who loves to hear himself talk. People say nice things about him in the industry, but I can’t help feeling like they’re probably under contract or obligated for their own careers. He is the picture of smugness. And that goes for his baby momma, too. Insufferable.

    I’ve met William Petersen (most recognized as Gil Grissom on CSI) in person a handful of times. Hands-down, the nicest person ever. Cares about his fans, remembers what its like to be a fan, and treats people with respect and kindness. A very gracious and wonderful man. More celebs (and people in general) should take their cues from him. Thanks, Billy!

    My son and I met Adam Sandler in March 2008 on the Sony Picture Studio lot.  We had gone there to see Wheel of Fortune being taped and one of the escorts pointed out his trailer on the way in…when we were leaving I saw several people standing around outside and zero’d in on Adam….ran over to him and he couldn’t have been nicer!!  My son has autism and at one point blurted out $25,000…to which Adam asked me if Kenny wanted him to give him some money!!!  Explained the WOF taping and he got a kick out of it.  He was an absolute sweetheart!!!  Also met David Cassidy in 1993 when the Partridge Family bus was on tour… he was very nice- had a photo taken with him and my son (he commented that he had a son around his age)…I had the photo made into an 8×10, mailed it to NYC where he was in Blood Brothers on Broadway and asked him to autograph it…mailed it back to me right away with a very nice comment and autograph.  Lastly, I was on Maury Povich in 1993 (and no- it was not a Who’s your Daddy segment- lol)- I was reunited with an ex-best friend and he was soooooo nice….when my camera malfunctioned and I was afraid I’d lost photos I’d taken with him the day of the taping I called the studio and he was happy to take more photos with me!!!  Mailed one of the photos to him and he also wrote something very sweet and autographed it.  Oh, also 5 years ago met Jamie and Bobby Deen (Paula’s sons) and they treated my best friend (the one I was reunited with on Maury Povich) and I like we were family!!!

  • Missmeghan

    Jon Hamm was right. Also Brad Pitt comes across as a real tool.

  • Lee

    I’ve also heard that Nathan Fillon is very nice.  Haven’t met him in person but hope to someday!

  • Bojorco

    John Hamm was hardly a d-bag about the Kardashians.  Someone needed to say it.  There’s still no good reason at all for any of those three to be as well known as they are.  It’s purely manufactured celebrity.  

  • duckster

    Rachel McAdams Class, beauty and a nice person! Is she married?

  • raven

    for the 10,000th time, give Brad Pitt a break when it comes to Jennifer Aniston!!   he wasn’t happy.  she knew it.  their marriage was falling apart before Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  and Jennier Aniston is no angel!!  She cheated with her current man, Justin .. and he was with his GF for 11 years!?  why does everyone continue to think she’s such an angel .. when she is just as bad!!  @Reblo … people are not paid to say things about Brad.  rest assured that SOMEONE would have come out by now with horror stories.  why is it so freaking hard to believe that Brad and Jen are GREAT people who are MEANT to be together and are in LOVE.  gees … jealous much?

  • raven

    very cool … good to know there are still “nice” celebs out there.  :)

  • raven

    I believe she’s dating Michael Sheen and they are very much a couple!

  • Nadia

     I think you mean Brad and Angie?

    But yes, I agree with everything you say. People speak up for Jen Aniston like she pays their rent. Get over yourselves.

  • raven

    oh hell yes i meant Brad and Angie .. LOL  i guess i should proof read before posting :)  ty

  • Nacho Mama

    I’d wager people who were indifferent to Jon Hamm before love him after his very true Kardashian comments.

  • Scarlett Messina

    100% agree. I personally don’t like Aniston as an actress and I couldn’t care less about her personal life. People fall in and out of love and husbands leave their wives for another womanall the time, it’s just more visible when you are a public figure. Brad wanted a family, kids and she did not; she continues to live her life as she wished, in top physical form and with no responsibilities other than to herself. Each one got what they wanted.

    Rachel McAdams got mobbed in the bathroom at an event that I had been at – and she was so nice about it – went outside of the ladies room and took pictures with everyone that asked and was nice about the whole entire thing.  We were at the back of the line, half expecting to be cut off from meeting – but that was totally not the case!!
