As for me I see any famous person as normal human being, so they do just their job. I really don’t care about anyone’s autograph. I can like their actions that’s it. And I’m not dying to meet anyone who I like as an actor or singer

Since i remembered, i never asked someone for their autographs, but just my parents!! and it was for my wonderful grades. at that time, we had to show our hight marks(!!) to our parents to get their confirmation, and as i remember they did it for me with the highest level of satisfaction for my wonderful job. and as i never want to make my parents upset and disappointed , if my grade report wasn’t brilliant enough, i took the responsibility on my own and did a nice autograph for teachers by myself ;)

The ’celebrity’ in the photo above looks happy signing autographs. In real life, they’re never this happy signing autographs, well at least the ones i’ve seen.

No, I don’t. In fact, in several cases, I only asked once from one Iranian football players to take a picture with me. He was Yahya GolMohamadi. The first thing which jumped into my mind was why did he screw up the last penalty of final Asian cup but I was sure that it would make a bad taste in his mouth and I passed by. 



The truth is I don’t want to have anybody’s autograph. Having a picture together would be a good idea. ON the contrary, I agree with hazelgirl’s suggestion about selling them to their fans and making a great deal of money in this way. I’m in, anyway.

There are restaurants and bars that hang autographed pictures of celebrities that were taken when they visited there.  The thing is that those stuff are invariably old and dirty.

I had asked a singer for an autograph,But i had already forget who he is ,Because it’s long time ago ,when i was in primary school.I was waiting for him got out of his car .I was over the moon excited after i got the autograph,Then few days passed i couldn’t find it any more.He’s not my favorite ,At that time ,i was totally a copycat.


Now ,i really want to get the autograph from Michael Jackson

“How cool would it be if he signed my forehead?”  Loooool, I too much liked that joke. Anyway, I’m not that kind of person who likes to ask for an autograph. I find it not worthwhile. It doesn’t make any sense for me. What’s the point of it?! But at the same time, I really understand others who like it.
