5 Randomly Generous Celebrities

Posted by PZ on February 4th, 2013

While plenty of stars are publicly charitable, promoting causes or donating some of their salaries to charities they care about, these 5 stars pick random moments and people to be generous towards when they feel like it. When it’s just a random act of generosity it seems more real and less like they’re trying to show off just how charitable they are to their fans or to make headlines about how nice they are. It’s just about giving a little bit back to those who might need it, deserve it or otherwise. From handing over a few extra dollars as a tip to driving around giving out pizzas to the homeless, these 5 randomly generous stars don’t care about the good publicity they can get off being charitable and simply want to do something nice.



Britney Spears


Britney Spears was dining out with her whole family when her young son Jayden began crying: ”Britney just couldn’t calm her tyke down. But a sympathetic waiter, not one assigned to her table, helped save the day when he came over with a box of crayons and started drawing animation action characters. Jayden’s tears dried up instantly as he and his brother got totally absorbed and happy.” The singer thanked the quick-thinking waiter by tipping him $100.

David Arquette

David was on route to have dinner with his cousin at a swanky restaurant in Los Angeles. The taxi driver who dropped him off told David that he’d wait outside for the star to finish his meal. David insisted that the man should join them for dinner instead of sitting outside. The unnamed man commented about the surprise dinner:  ”When I dropped them off at the restaurant, I said I would wait for them to finish. But they insisted I come inside and join them instead of waiting outside.”

Ginnifer Goodwin

Actress Ginnifer’s friends had to force her to stop being so generous because they were worried about her safety. According to the star, she often hands out bundles of money to random people on the street:  “My friends had an intervention about me handing money to strangers on the street. They think I’m actually endangering myself.”

Harry Styles

Harry is raking in the dough as part of ‘One Direction’ but that doesn’t mean he’s keeping it all to himself. According to his friend Ed Sheeran he can be extremely generous and once forked out £3,000 on pizza for the homeless which he delivered himself. Ed explained:  ”We were in LA about three months ago and he had a day off. He spent two or three grand on Domino’s pizza and drove around giving them out to homeless people. That’s an amazing story. People write about Harry in a negative way because of his love life but he does stuff like that a lot. He’s a pretty genuine guy.” A source close to the star added: “Harry only came into this huge amount of wealth in the past two years, so he doesn’t take it for granted at all. He’s really generous and likes feeling like he does some good in the world.”


Rihanna was recently enjoying herself at the Laugh Factory Comedy Club watching comedian Dane Cook with a few friends. When a waiter approached her to pay the $80 table bill, Rihanna asked him what his biggest tip ever was. The man working responded that it was $100.00 and Rihanna responded by giving him a tip to top that. She handed him $200 and exclaimed happily: ”Now I’m your biggest tip!”
