5 Reasons Why Your Favorite Celebrity Might Show Up In Your Dream


celebrity crush 1Have you ever had a dream where someone famous showed up? Celebrity dreams are quite common among people who have celebrity crushes and are super fans of people who are famous. If you spend all day thinking about someone famous, there is a good chance that you might see that person in your dream.

#1 – You Think About A Celebrity ALL the Time

When you spend all of your waking thoughts about a certain person, that person will start to show up in your dreams. It is not surprising that young teenage girls are the most likely to have a dream about their favorite YouTube star or boy band crush. Justin Bieber and One Direction are just a few of the singers who are likely to be dreamt about by young impressionable fans.

The more direct interaction you have with a celebrity, the more likely you are going to have a deeper connection with that person. If a fan is able to directly communicate and interact with a celebrity on twitter or YouTube, that fan is likely to form a deeper bond and connection.

#2 – You Recently Watched A Movie With Your Favorite Celebrity

Just like Horror movies can have an impact on your dreams, watching a movie with a Hollywood star can sometimes cause them to show up in your dreams. This is especially true if you have a favorite celebrity that you are always thinking about during the day.

Often the last things we are thinking about right before bed can make an impact on our dreams. So if you think long enough about your favorite celebrity crush, there is a good chance that they can show up when you are dreaming.

#3 – The Celebrity Is All Over the Current Headlines and News

Sometimes people make an appearance in our dream whether we want them there or not. If someone is constantly being splashed all over the news then the might make their way into your subconscious minds without you even consciously thinking about them.

The stuff that you read during the day and watch on TV can have an impact on what you dream about at night. That is why people often have more dreams about natural disasters and end of the world scenarios, when there is a big world event like Hurricane Katrina or the Tsunami that hit Japan or Southeast Asia.

#4 – The Celebrity is Symbolic of A Deeper Meaning

Sometimes celebrity might represent specific meanings in our dreams. For example, if you think of Tom Cruise as someone who is optimistic and always positive, seeing him in your dream could represent that inner optimism inside of you. Conversely, if Tom Cruise represents someone who has a lot of deep secrets, then seeing him in a dream could mean that you have secrets you are hiding.

The meaning of the celebrity will depend entirely on your personal feelings towards that person. Unless you are dreaming about a figure like Mother Theresa, who is a universal symbolic of selflessness and giving, it all comes down to the context of the dream and your feelings towards that person.

#5 – You Might Be Looking For More Passion In Your Life

It is not secret that relationships have their highs and their lows. When you first start dating someone, there is a period of infatuation with that person. This is the period when you are often madly in love. As life begins to happen, people grow in different ways and run into different obstacles.

If you dream about a romantic fling with a celebrity, it could mean that you are looking to find that passion and excitement that you once had. It could also reflect a real life crush that you have on that celebrity and how you wish to bring more excitement into your life.

People who are single are more likely to spend time thinking about their dream man, who could be embodied in the form of a celebrity. Think Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt, two men who are symbolic of the ideal men in a lot of women.

Dreaming About A Celebrity Doesn’t Mean You Will Meet That Person

Just because you dream about a celebrity doesn’t mean that you are meant to be with that person or will even meet them. If you are a big fan of that celebrity in your waking life, then there is a good chance that the celebrity can natural make their way into your dreams.

When you spend time thinking about someone or something, the subconscious mind will store that information, which can later be used in your dream.

So the next time you have a dream about your celebrity crush, don’t go out and buy a lottery ticket just yet. There is a good chance the dream is simple self fulfilling your desire to be with that person or something during the previous day reminded you of them.

  1. I’ve had the same dream of my favorite celebs for two nights in a row, but with different celebs.

    Dream #1 was I was in a dream with Rihanna and she was super rude to me, I cried in the dream.

    Dream #2 I was with kpop idol CL and she was super rude to me, I cried more in that dream.

    What does this mean?

  2. Alexa the wierdo on

    Soon I had a dream that I was at like some old chucky cheese type of place and that I was getting bullied but then all of a sudden SHANE DAWSON appears and helps me and also fort some reason one my friends were there and I’m like a shame super fan, so Shane put his hand on like some type of bar and I’m like OMG DID YOU SEE THAT SHANE DAWSON THEEEE SHANE DAWSON PUT HIS HAND ON THE FRIGGIN COUNTER LOOKKK then my friend just looks at me like I’m crazy, then Shane asked me if I wanted to be friends with him i felt like I was gonna die of happiness then for some reason I walked away because I thought Shane didn’t want me there after like an hour i walked out of the creepy Chuck e cheese place and I heard a car pull up to me and it was SHANE AND RYLANd (i felt like I screamed in real life XD) and Shane asked me if I wanted to be there plus one to like some baby fairy tale land place and I didn’t care if it was for baby’s i still would go be cause of Shane!!! But sadly right when he gave it to me i put it up to my heart and as I was about to say ye I want to go!! I WOKE UP!! and I literally looked on my chest for the ticket that he gave me but then I remembered it was a dream!!!!

  3. Today I had a dream about Park jimin (members of boy band BTS).. We are in relationship and kissing each have other.. Wow.. Really I don’t want to woke up after all that.. That feeling is so real and I can’t get enough

    • Hey Army! Same here! I dreamed that Jungkook and Me we’re friends and we kissed but it just a peck because it was a dear.

      I dreamed numerous times about BTS and i write it in my diary everytime so that i can remember it. I like to sleep alot because that way, i can see them in my dream

  4. I had the best dream on April the 9th, when i kissed a male korean idol (im not going to name him) but we kissed and before the night i cried everyday that i know that i will never be able to meet them, i did this quiz for fun and it was called : Which member wwill i marry from XXX? I didnt get my bias so i kept trying until i did get him, when i did i jumped around and cried so much with joy (yes hormones, i was 12 when it happened and im still 12 :/) i was going out in the night for a long drive in the night with my family and i was staring at the stars thinking and quietly crying for my favourite korean boy band the same day at night, i was blessed with a dream of my bias hugging me and kissing me, i woke up and i was crying out happy tears, i know this will never happen so i got to experience it in my dreams. Today, on the 30th of July 2018, i did a research on : “Does it mean anything when your celebrity crush kisses you on the lips?” And i found out that in my waking life it will mean that ive sealed an agreement and i will become successful one day in my waking life. I also read that it means nothing if you dream about your celebrity crush…..But i still belive it has a meaning <\3

  5. I had a dream about meeting and becoming friends with Bob Morley aka Bellamy Blake from The 100. I have a huge crush on him and really want to met him.

  6. The past few nights, I have been dreaming about the Dolan Twins. I am so happy in the dream but when I wake up, I am all emotional and miss them like I met them and didn’t want to leave. I don’t know if that is normal or not.

  7. Yesterday night I dreamt that I was on some sort of holiday, and we were all in the water swimming with tourists around me and my family. Then suddenly Johnny Depp was there and everyone were swimming up to him to take pics, and then when it calmed down and he was alone I swam up to him and then I started preaching about how he’s been my favorite actor since age 8 and then he said that it was the nicest thing someone had said to him and then he hugged me lol. It was such a weird dream, and when I woke up I was convinced for a solid 2 minutes that I had indeed med Johnny. Then I felt a little sad when I realised it was a dream loool. I think its caused I watched one of his movies a while ago, but its still odd that he just popped up in the water whilst I was on holiday lmao

  8. So l had a dream about Finn Wolfhard and Noah Schnapp kinda like the first comment hahaha. So basically us kids were all camping out in a forest with no adult what SO EVER!! We all shared the same tent so it was like me, finn, noah and like 8 other girls and some other random boys and oh Caleb was there too. It was like 1:00 am in the morning and l felt that someone was walking outside the tent and l knew it was an old creepy man that was most likely going to kill us. So he shot us all inside the tent. Bloody weird dream anyway the tent just suddenly disappeared and then Finn Wolfhard somehow saved the day even though he got shot. He had a plastic knife which somehow killed the murderer… l know such a random dream! Anyway everyone was to proud of Finn. And then straight into the second dream of the night..

    lt felt like l was in America but everyone in the dream told me l was in Pitt St Sydney…. lt was basically all the same people from the last dream in this dream but lilia buckingham (Maddie zieglers bf) was my best friend in this dream.. So it was basically us and like 10 girls in an auditorium working out who will be in this movie with Finn Wolfhard and Noah Schanpp. And they were there watching us doing scenes and stuff. Our scenes were all fighting scenes so like fighting much older men and how we react to it. 2 girls would be selected to be in this love story movie (one will eventually have a love connection with finn and someone else will have a love connection with Noah) lt was so random all these girls just started to disappear and soon it was just lilia and myself in the room with finn, Noah and all the directors, writers etc. They were all like congrats you both got one of the two main female roles playing Elsie and me playing charlotte. We were so beyond excited and we soon started to rehearse the first scene and that was it for the day. lt was so much fun semi cliche but worth it! So obviously Finn and Noah are best friends and noah meets lilia first and falls in love with her but Finn doesn’t like it and gets annoyed with noah and so later in the movie l come in and he looks at me like l am $100000000 its so good! And this guy is trying to kill us all and thats when we have learnt all our boxing and fighting skills come to place! And finn is trying to fight the bad guy and protect me at the same time its super cute! Anyway thats kinda like the random plot of the story.. After that we all started to have a hit of tennis just us 4 only for fun but they didn’t let me play because l was way too good and i would just embarrass them so l gave them just a mini tennis lesson. And all of a sudden Caleb Mccglauclin jumps out from a tree and yells can l play????? and l was so mean and l said NO, GO AWAY CALEB! Yeah l was pretty horrible. And all l remember after that is me sitting on a coffee table by myself getting this message from lilia who created a group chat with her me finn and noah and she named it the USA game and l instantly messaged said um well this is awkward because l am Australian. And they all messaged saying “traitor” “move to the dark side” all of that as a joke and then l was facetiming lilia in the street and she said she wanted to hang so we met up on the tennis court and noah and finn and Caleb were there and this girl from my school randomly showed up and we really wanted to have a hit of tennis but none of us gave in to let her play so she said to noah finn and Caleb do you want even better racquets then the shitty ones your using cause l have all the best ones. and they said um where are they then? well the sports shed has actually the best ones but not many people know about them and its literally just behind the house. So the boys agreed to go with her but l didn’t think it would be the best idea either and she winked at me ill be right back. 2 minutes later we could here the boys screaming and the girl called Lucy locked them in the old shed and froze them! She came back and said l handled it and l ran off the court and tried to free them and unfreeze them. And… THE END! Thats all l remember because l woke up hearing heaps of people talking at 11:33 AM WHO THE HELL WAKES UP THAT LATE… Its so weird because l usually wake up at 8:30 but l guess l couldn’t get too sleep around 3:00 AM last night (devils hour) l feel so sorry to anyone who has read this because it does not make any sense WHATSOEVER!

    • I had a dream last night I went to go see Dua Lipa, hunk about this, I had recently seen her a week ago. Anyways, I went with 2 friends of mine. The concert was a flexible concert that always moved after 1 song. Everyone would get a chance in the front. When it was our turn, my friends were trying to get her sing begging and Genesis. I told them she already has a set list. Dua kind of looked mad at my friends. After we got off, I was about to take a picture of me with my friends, Dua thought that we were taking a picture of her. She said no pictures please. My friends said my name, I was like fine. I started crying because of all of the built up stress. Dua gave me a hug and said “ Don’t cry tears love, and gave me a hug” (this week was after the concert”. I actually do think about her a lot, and I also think it’s a symbolic meaning because I think personally she’s a great role model,
      So for her to do that shows the kind of person she is. I think my dream was trying to tell me that inside I have a sweet heart too, or something like that. This is pretty weird for me because I saw her literally exactly a week ago.

    • Omg you had a dream about Finn,Noah,Lilia,Maddie me to whattt???? No joke it was a constant dream it is crazy It keeps happening to me lol Im sad I want to meet them

  9. I had a dream that I was going out with Justin bieber and we just were like perfect then his ex got jealous and we had to break up and it was sad at the end but it was amazing in the beginning

  11. fillie stranger things shipper on

    i had 2 weird dreams of finn wolfhard. i just want to mention i dont have a celebrity crush on him. however i am a hardcore fillie shipper so i do watch finn and millie a lot. they are all over my instagram. but the thing is… why did i dream of finn not millie? anyways lets start

    the first dream i wasnt even acknowledged by finn. he invited me to his party but i didnt even want to go. but i had to cause for some odd reason my older sister really liked him. (not in that way) i remember there was a group of girls just laughing and joking and i noticed there was one that had a crush on him. i even saw the cast of ‘it’ there. but not the cast of stranger things. that’s all i remember honestly.

    the second dream was even weirder. he invited me AGAIN to his birthday party. i think i had an arguement with my dad so i decided to go and sneak to his house and sleep on his bed because i didnt want to in my house cause i was mad. so i went there. again the cast of it was there. so i went to a random bed that looked like a girls bed.i slept without even knowing it. then i hear his mom yelling his name to come here cause i was sleeping in a bed. he came in and he looked at me for a couple of seconds and just suddenly became really mad. he was like “get up, get up”. but i didnt. he then told his mom to ignore me because i was stupid and annoying…. which was so rude, but i didnt even care, i just kept on sleeping. then i suddenly woke up. and got out of bed then i dont remember what happened next but i found myself WITH finnwolfhard on the floor like… BONDING. and he was super nice all of a sudden. it was as if he had a crush on me. then we had to go to a musem of some sort idk. i went and i remember looking at myself feeling a bit insecure. i stood there looking at my outfit. it was a tight long sleeves shirt that was autumn colored. and trendy tight ripped jeans. then i woke up and decide to write this. so youre welcome lol.

    • Another Finn dream omg lol I still keep having them and decided to wake up a write it but for some reason I forget some of it.What I remember is that It all started in my house so I was singing a song of his band (Calpurnia) then he heard me like in the hallways and walked up to me and said “hey that’s a nice song” I just said oh really thanks I wrote it(I did write in my dream but it was like he’s real life song).He was like you have skills then we started talking yess talking .Hw later said hey we should catch up later to go eat dinner and practice the song I am like ya sureeee.Later comes and then I met him and he’s brother his brother then leaves it’s only me and him we talk about the song almost the whole dream.Then we head to the practice room and played different tunes with the guitar and yah that’s all I have to say I wish It was real sucks to wake up and think you know them but turns out it’s just a dream.Ao thanks for reading this.
