Local Montanan Shares Amazing Celebrity Encounter
Seeing celebrities in Montana isn't new, but it can be exciting nonetheless. Stories like this remind us that despite how excited we may be to meet a celebrity, some just want to be treated like everyone else.
The TV show 1923 has garnered a lot of attention, both with Montanans and the rest of the world. This is another prequel series to the popular Yellowstone show. The show, starring Hollywood legends Helen Mirren and Harrison Ford, will premiere this Sunday, December 18th, on Paramount+.
Because of the show, Harrison Ford has been spending a lot of quality time in Montana and has even been spotted in Livingston. Ford is a living legend of cinema, and you have to appreciate the guy. The man has been in everything from Indiana Jones to Star Wars to Jack Ryan. He's a Hollywood icon. That's why when I saw this, I couldn't help but appreciate him more.
I was scrolling through TikTok and found a video of a young lady describing her recent encounter with Harrison Ford. The user talked about how Ford's plane was delayed due to the weather, so he stopped into her place of work. Check out the video below.

Being a celebrity comes with certain stipulations, including people asking for autographs or pictures. But sometimes, celebrities just want to be treated like everyone else. I am happy that Walker's in Billings gave Harrison Ford a nice, relaxing meal before his trip back to sunny California. Plus, you come away with a genuine, fantastic compliment from a legendary actor. That's high praise.
You always hear stories like this about John Mayer in Livingston, walking around the grocery store or the downtown area, and people treat him like one of the locals. I love hearing stories like this.
So the next time you see a celebrity out in Montana, be kind and respect their personal space. These celebrities might want to be like the rest of us.
