Celebrities who went above and beyond for their fans

Celebrities and their fans connect on various levels. There are fans who come to many shows, send fan mail, or cover their social media with their love for that specific celebrity or band. Some famous men and women respond to their fans by giving them shoutouts, while others go above and beyond to surprise their fans in the most incredible ways. Without the following that these celebrities have, they would not have the fame and fortune that they collect from their high-profile job. Their fans are the ones who go to see their movie, or listen to their album, buy their merchandise, and follow them on social media; providing them the platform to make even more money. Some celebrities acknowledge that without their fans they are nothing so they surprise them in ways that only they can. Just their presence is enough to make any fan go bananas, but celebrities like Zac Efron did something unbelievable for one of his most devout fans as if one could love Zac Efron any more than one already does!

Good old Arnold helped out a fan of his who was suffering from a serious bout with depression. When Arnold was working on one of the Terminator movies, a fan wrote that he had been out of the gym for a while and depressed and swore that if Arnold wrote him to get up and get to the gym that he would surely do it.

Well, Arnold heard of this and wrote the guy to be kind to himself and take things slow.

Eminem did indeed see the message and in a very low-key way, went to see the fan and fulfill his dream of meeting him. Eminem could have made it a publicity haven to improve his image, but he did no such thing and just went to the fans home in Michigan to hang out with him.
