Ingen tvivl om at den stormflod af anklager om seksuelle krænkelser i Hollywood vidner om et ældgammelt, indgroet, systematisk magtmisbrugsproblem, og at det er positivt de endelig bliver bragt frem i lyset. Men i den forbindelse er det også rart indimellem at blive mindet om, at nogle stjerner – også de mandlige – bruger sin magt til at sprede positivitet.
Det valgte et udvalgt Twitter-segment at sætte fokus på henover weekenden, efter brugeren Bakoon bad tweeps om at dele deres »nice allegations« mod kunstnere. Det kom der en lang række hjertevarmende beretninger ud af om alt fra Keanu Reeves, Gucci Mane og naturligvis Tom Hanks.
if anyone has any nice allegations against a celebrity that would be great too. does a famous actor give good christmas presents. does lady comedian alwyays smoke people out

My husband sat next to him at a film festival event in SF a couple years ago. When it was over, Keanu stayed and picked up other people's trash.

i ran into nick offerman in my office building the morning after trump got elected. we commiserated, and when he ran into me later in the day he said "things are looking up. nobody got elected today." first thing that made me laugh about the election. i really appreciated it.

i was an extra in a movie with Michael Keaton. He played frisbee with us, took pictures, and signed my friend's Batman DVD

I helped install Cuba Gooding Jrs home theater and he was SO excited and appreciative when we set him up to play different music in different rooms

Ikke overraskende bliver der fremhævet lige så mange historier om Hollywoods kvinder – selvfølgelig ført an af Carrie Fisher.
when john boyega was hungry and sick of his strict diet for star wars, he went to carrie fisher's trailer to ask for her help.
she pointed him to her fridge and he found that it was stocked full of junk food, and she told him "i was waiting for you to fail" https://t.co/4XoodFPB1C

Lucy Liu is otherworldly nice even if you're a lowly PA on the set of her TV show

One time I tweeted @SarahKSilverman about being too broke to go to her show and was reading her book instead- she DMd me that she put me on the list for the show. My future wife and went to that show togeather. I hope she knows how much that meant to me, I cried with joy.

Tilsyneladende er ‘Dr. Who’-skuespillerne generelt set umanerligt flinke:
David Tennant not only graciously accepted an academic paper from a random fan in the Richard II stage door line but actually read it and sent me an appreciative note about it

Danny DeVito og hans kone Rhea Perlman lader også til at være skåret af det helt rette materiale.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman let me stay with them when my mom was in the hospital for cancer surgeries

Danny DeVito tipped $120 to have two cases of wine one delivered one block to his apartment.

Intet ord om Christopher Walkens opførsel, men i det mindste dufter han godt:
you know who smells good as hell? christopher walken

Men mest af alt lyder Tom Hanks som en helgen.
I once served Tom Hanks at my old job. Once I was off I was leaving & he was too. I asked if it would be okay for us to take a picture together. He smiled & said “walk with me.” So I did & we talked, he gave me some life advice, then we took a few pictures together.

Secondhand, but Tom Hanks was apparently very friendly and enthusiastic about humoring my Dad's interest in kaleidoscopes.

Vi ved selvfølgelig ikke, om der alligevel er skeletter i skabet hos de fremhævede skuespillere og musikere, men om ikke andet så har de i de omtalte situationer været nærmest menneskelige.
