Many Actors Are Signing Fewer Autographs These Days

After 18 years of signing everything for fans, actor Bryan Cranston says “I’m retiring,” complaining he’s been “overwhelmed by requests”. Part of the problem is professional autograph hunters are often found at premieres and other events, collecting celebrity scribbles on relevant memorabilia. Ten years ago, Ringo Starr declared he would no longer sign memorabilia for fans. He said the measure was “in direct response to an inordinate amount of items which have recently appeared for sale on eBay.”

He’s not the only one… Emma Watson doesn’t mind signing autographs, but she draws the line at stopping for a selfie. “If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 metres.” she says.

Bill Murray will give you an autograph if you ask for one – but it won’t necessarily be his name that he signs. While playing at a Pro-Am golf tournament in 2015, he used a permanent blue marker pen to sign Miley Cyrus’s name – on an autograph seeker’s forehead.
