Famous people often remark that the reason they're so often drawn to Ireland is they're often left alone.
This is quite true, because as we know, Irish people would go out of their way not to give anyone famous the satisfaction or the acknowledgement. Oh, so you're Morgan Freeman, is it? Grand so. Whatever you're having yourself.
This, naturally, leads to people having very mundane interactions with outrageously famous people in Ireland, as evidenced by this Twitter thread from last week.
Take a look.

I met Morgan Freeman in Dunnes Stores at the Stephens Green Shopping Centre. I panicked & asked him to pass me a box of corn flakes from the top shelf.

I opened what looked like an office door in a corridor in UCD Arts block and stood in the doorway for a few seconds as FW de Klerk looked up from what he was reading in an armchair in what appeared to be small window-less store-room, before I closed the door and went on. Surreal.

(For you uncultured swines out there, FW de Klerk was the last South African president before apartheid was formally abolished.)
