Will Ferrell has been voted the rudest celebrity when it comes to signing autographs.
The Elf star is reluctant to stop for fans and is impolite when he does, according to Autograph magazine’s 2007 list of “10 Best and 10 Worst Hollywood Signers.”
Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire, who is mild-mannered and helpful in the movies, is almost as bad, according to the publication, coming in a close second. “Tobey has a bit of an attitude, but he will sign,” said Lon Strickler, 49, a Baltimore autograph collector.
“But Will Ferrell, I don’t know what his problem is. He just tries to ignore people.”
Meanwhile, for the third year in a row, Johnny Depp was voted the most gracious and approachable celebrity when fans ask for autographs.
New York autograph dealer Anthony Risi told Autograph the soft-spoken Depp “likes to talk to fans and get to know them while signing.”
“He’ll sign more than one item when he has time, too,” he said.
The list is based on rankings from autograph collectors in New York, California and Europe.
Russell Crowe, ranked among the worst signers last year, this year made the top 10 list. “At one time he was terrible, but I saw him a couple of months ago and he was taking pictures with fans and everything,” Strickler said. “Someone must have said something.”
