Asking a Celebrity for their Autograph

Imagine being in the practice courts at New York City’s annual US Open tennis tournament. Although you know that your favorite tennis player of all time, Rafa Nadal, is practicing on court, you were still caught by surprise when he comes walking past you. Starstruck and heart pounding, do you wait until he’s finished playing to ask/beg for an autograph and risk him rushing off, or stop him now, knowing he could get annoyed?

How do you get a celeb to scribble their name on your scrap of paper – or body part 😍🤣💋

Find the perfect situation 

Just like any other person, celebs sometimes want to be left alone!

Maybe they’re enjoying a family holiday, feeling unwell or rushing to get supplies in their jammies – these are possibly not the best times to bother them, and it’s better to wait for a fan meet-up, to grab a signature.

However, if you’re lucky or plan it right, you could also spot them buying coffee in their local Starbucks with a smile on their face, engaged in small talk with a store clerk. When you have a scenario like this, chances are they would be okay for an autograph and probably even a selfie with you. So do your best to assess the situation first before you go charging in.

Know what you want to say

Stammering because you don’t know what to would annoy anyone, let alone a busy celeb. You should exude confidence and positivity, whilst remaining polite and respectful. Look genuine and sincere while you engage flattery mode. Positive superlative statements such as “I believe that you are the greatest of all time, and it would mean the world to me if you sign an autograph for me” or a simple “I love what you do; please sign this autograph” whilst not guaranteed to work, will get better results than bombarding them with demands, or stuttering some garbled rubbish.

Be ready with pen and paper (or body part that you’ll never, ever wash)

Signing autographs takes time, and any celeb worth their salt is going to be busy, so it helps to have everything ready for them to sign and run! Never leave scrambling for your notebook til the last minute – have paper and pen to hand, or if you choose a T-shirt, have it on a hard surface, such as a book or clipboard, for easy signing. Make sure, too, that your pen works.

Don’t act like an infatuated stalker

You are standing up close with your favorite celebrity. However, it doesn’t mean that you should take advantage of it to get even closer, ask for a handshake, or worse, lick their face – believe us, we’ve seen that done! You’re not wanting to become awesome BFFs, just grab their sig. Hand them your pen, paper, arm or umm … wherever, and smile – simples!
