Famous People

Dreaming of famous people may indicate desire to be noticed and acclaimed.It can poin to one’s own potential, often unacknowledged, and projected onto dream character or a parent; depending on how you relate to the famous person – your own ability to accept yourself as respected. Your desire ambitions and efforts to become successful.

Because the person you are dreaming about represent qualities in you, the person may, because of their life or role, represent a particular quality such as courage, love, ‘ruling’ drives in life, authority, etc. If you think of the person in a particular role or scene, this will probably be the major clue to what they represent – such as the lover who leaves – the father who sacrifices, etc. See Characters and People in Dreams

Famous people can be seen as social guinea pigs. Collectively we expose them to enormous amounts of money, sexual opportunity, drugs, alcohol, and tremendous social and commercial pressures. Then we examine every part of their life to see how well they cope. Millions then identify with the image they portray of how to deal with reality at its best and worst. The famous person in our dream might therefore represent our coping mechanism.

Example: ‘A film star I admire came and lay beside me in the night. He told me he loved me and would stay with me. I knew he was living with a woman who had borne his child, but he told me he was going to tell her he was leaving her. In the morning we walked along the road where I live, to tell the woman.’ Sharon.

Sharon processed her dream and saw the film star as her own strength and determination to further her career as a dancer. Being 18 she was faced with the decision of whether to become a wife and mother – the other woman – or put those urges into her work. In her dream she chose to be fully involved in her dancing.

Actor/actress: One is acting a role; wanting attention; deception.

Film/stage/TV star: May be what is described above under famous people, but if the star has a particular quality, the dream may use them to denote this characteristic, such as love, treachery, courage, etc.

King: Father; thinking; authority; power to command.

Pop star: Similar to what has been said about famous people, but might also carry feelings to do with intense teenage sexuality or need; what you hold as an ideal or idol; a role model; egomania.

Queen: Often one’s mother; a feeling or drive ruling your life; wanting approval, or even sex.

See: king; queen; actor/actress/acting; theatre.

    Hi – I am going to halt from answering your posts – the reason is that in so many of your post I give the same information to. That is because most posts do not realise the difference between dreaming and waking life. It makes a great difference.

    So, most of what I put in answers is my attempt at explaining what dreams are really about. It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#Summing it would help me, and hopefully you too.


    It is fear little brother, it is fear. And unless the meet it face to face it will keep chasing you. See http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/questions-2/#FaceFear

    This example is from Oliver, a boy of six, illustrates how such fears as shown in the above example can be met with a little courage. It is a dream which recurred several times, so his description is of a series of dreams.

    Example: ‘I am in my bed in my own room and I hear what I know to be a wolf wearing the sort of clogs worn in Lancashire. When the wolf gets to a certain point, there is a bang, and I wake terrified. My Mother’s reassurances do not help. Each night he gets a bit nearer before my panicky awakening. The night came when I know he will reach me. Sure enough he arrives, and the bedroom door – in my dream – is flung wide open with a tremendous bang. There is no one there. I never dreamt it again.’

I had a dream of Sammy Sosa coming to church with me. I was his interpreter although I speak very little Spanish. He was young and strong and new to the league. All the ladies wanted him which was funny and cute. I was basically his assistant. I don’t know what he and I could possibly have in common so I’m going to do some research on him. He was a child hood crush once.

I was dancing in a forest with Bo Burnham, and I was singing to him, but I kept repeating the song. I sang really well and he was smiling a lot and seemed genuinely impressed by the way I sang. The song was also important, I kept starting in the middle because I forgot the lyrics of the beginning, I believe it was “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith. I also was looking at myself, and not at Bo’s face, who I should’ve been looking at since I was dancing with him. Instead I watched us from a little bit back. And I didn’t look like myself entirely, I looked like a better version of me, my hair was dyed a bit lighter, my body was in great shape.

In my way, I interpret this dream as me looking toward the future. I was in a beautiful place, impressing and interacting with someone I greatly admire. We were equals once I had begun singing and he was then just as interested in my talent as I was in his.

Soon after, though, I began rethinking what I wanted, and I rolled down the hill full of leaves. I left because he wasn’t what I thought I knew anymore.

I’m hoping that this doesn’t mean if I achieve my goals that they will be disappointing and I will fall out of success. To me, it just seemed like I would change course and begin something new.

In this dream, I also was bit by a black widow, something I’ve dreamed about before, and it always happens on my right knuckles. I had been bitten in dreams three other times, this being the fourth, so now there was one for each knuckle, and it always feels so real and is so scary! Nothing ever happens though, except this time I touched someone else with my knuckle and they grew sick. I read that spiders in dreams represent the future and success, and being bitten by a spider symbolizes fear of the future, so maybe me getting bit but being fine is a symbolization of my unnecessary anxieties of the future.

I had a dream last night that BTS’ Suga left to pursue a solo rapper career, it was sad. But I was kindof confused when I woke up because it was random, I never really dream about celebrities.

I dreamt about Kanye West twice. The first time he was at some show I was too and I had a picture taken with him, the second time I dreamt that he was my neighbour. I don’t even like Kanye, so I’m very confused as to why I’ve dreamt twice about him in the last week

I had a dream I was dating Justin Beiber. I don’t necessarily like or dislike Justin Beiber. I don’t think about him often nor do I listen to his music. The thing I remember most about him was how small his hands were. We had the same hand size. I don’t understand it at all.

    I dreamt having a political conversation with the ex president of my country , the famous actor saswasknaga and some other people

-Lucas 2016-07-14 5:14:12

I really would like the know the meaning of this. I dreamed of all 4 Beatles. We were at a department store and Paul I remember he kept buying socks over and over again. Then the next thing is all 4 of them were in a line talking and me in front of them and John tells a joke about BBQ chips and they all started to laugh. What could this mean?

Last night I dreamt of Chord Overstreet, an he was my friend. He called me in his room so I can help him dress to the music festival thingy and I tried to help but I couldn’t so I started crying. I bent down on my knees an putted my hands in my face crying my eyes out saying,” Ugh, why, why. I’m such a horrible friend!” As I was still crying Chord came over to me an I noticed I just became naked. Chord was also naked an was walking to me. I was still on my knees but Chord pussed me down till my ass stoke out. He went inside me and just lightly laid on top of me whispering into my ear saying “I love you.” I was still sad till he took his phone out and showed me pics of him modeling an then one pic showed him playing the violin!? I was amazed cause I always want a man to be able to play the violin. So I laid on his arm happily and snoozed on his arm around me. Help me the dream made me wet an he was my fave actor in glee, too.

I had I dream last night that I met josh Dun.I am/have been obsessed with him for quite some time. I know almost every little detail. I can’t stop thinking about tøp and obsessing with everything they do. I think about them like 24/7..

Last night I dreamed that I was at a bar in my neighborhood and I met him. He was getting a drink before hitting the road. He was heading to a place called nampa. We talked for quite some time.

This dream is recurring nightly and I don’t know what it means!!

I am surrounded by darkness. The only thing I can see is a coffee table in front of me. On the table there is a holy book I’ve never seen before, and it seems no one else has either, even though it is extremely worn from much use.

The book front cover has a picture of Socrates in gray scale that depicts him weeping tears of bitterness and looking up into heaven.

    Dear M.D. – It would have helped if you would have shared what you think might have triggered your dream or links with it in some way.
    What I see in your dream is that you are going through a period of inner darkness and it is a wise decision to release your bitterness; http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/
    Useful Questions and Hints:
    Is the book in my dream suggesting I am learning, escaping my life situation, or looking back on my own experience – whatever it is, what can I gather from that?
    Do I get particular ideas or feelings from the book(s) – if so what are they? (Please use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson)
    What do I feel if I imagine holding and opening the book?
    Anna 🙂

      Hi Anna, thank you for taking the time to look at my dream. I’m not prone to being overly terse so if I left details out I apologize.

      There are a lot of personal details to my interpretation of the dream, so could we correspond over email and then if/when you reach a satisfying interpretation you could decide if you want to post just your interpretation here in the comments? 🙂 That way I wouldn’t have to throw out so many personal details to the WWW. Thank you!

Jared Padalecki and his wife Genevieve were in my barn sleeping. And my cousin was in the stall next to them sleeping. And I woke up and was like what the heck did I just dream.

Dreamed that I found an address book or something similar belonging to Paul McCartney. He agreed to meet me at the beach in my hometown for lunch. I invited a friend to come down and meet him. By the time my friend arrived, McCartney had left and shortly afterwards so did my friend. I went to a local thrift store to search for him/them or something but it felt so frustrating. Somewhere in the dream I had to climb a long grass staircase, half way up being a restaurant.

I’ve had two dreams of David Bowie! David bowie has always been a crush of mine but after his passing I started to have dreams about him. First dream was I was in a auditorium and he was there and he started singing to me!! I was so happy I was duuude I have my own private concert with David bowie! Then he grabbed my breast and I was still happy like whhhhAaat then he asked why don’t I have a bigger but and I remember being sad that I wasn’t perfect not for him. I was in his house then I woke up. Dream two was I meant David Bowie at a concert and he saw me and just started talking to me. Again o was gitty with joy and he told me that he couldn’t be with me because I was skinny like iman and that I was most likely like his first wife. I was trying to convince him I was nothing like his first wife I wasn’t trying to get fame by being seen with him..so I started to walk away he got upset and grabbed me and we started walking together and he was holding my hand and just being happy then people saw us and he let go and he walked off I tried to get him but he didn’t want me near him..so I was just chasing him around then he was chasing me and we ended up at his moms house with his kids and I woke up…strange dream..but at least I got David Bowie!

I dreamed about Michael J Fox being a sub in my Health class. I don’t remember what he said but after class our health teacher texted us saying that I hope we had a great day, she didn’t even know or tell us that our sub was the Michael J Fox. I feal like I was the only one that really cared that he was our sub. After school he was sitting outside at a table talking about his foundation. I wanted to take a picture with him and he accepted. He also took a selfie with me on his phone. I wanted to also get his autograph but I didn’t have a picture so I was looking for something for him to sign. I finally found a piece of paper, thinking that he could sign it and I could put it in with my picture when I frame it. I don’t know how I got to my house, but when I went in my parents were in the kitchen. I asked them were he was. They said he had just left, I don’t even know why he was in my house. So I ran outside to look for him. When u saw a car driving away it looked like him inside so I ran after it shaking my hands. He looked at me and got out. But when he got out with the driver I saw that it wasn’t Michael. When I said your not Michael he apologized and got back in to the car. I was so disappointed, so I looked up online to see if he would be anywhere close by. And that’s all I remember.
