    Trevor Noah finds it "strange" when celebrities try to be friends with each other just because they are famous

    The 40-year-old comedian noticed when he became host of 'The Daily Show' almost a decade ago that as his profile began to rise, fellow famous faces would insist on getting his number so they could arrange to meet up but then they would never respond to his messages


    Speaking on the 'SmartLess' podcast, he said: "I always found it strange that people would try to be friends just because they're in a similar space. I remember when I first came to America and I would get invited to events because I was part of 'The Daily Show' and people would be like 'Oh my God, we should hang out, take my number' or say 'We gotta get a coffee...' and I would give people my number.

    "I thought I was making so many friends, I thought these people were so friendly and it was amazing.

    "And then I would hear nothing from the. I would message them and they wouldn't respond at all."

    The Emmy Award-winning star noted that celebrities tend to change their contact details regularly, but noted that on a few occasions, the same people would demand his number for a second time, completely forgetting that they already had it in the first place.

    He added: "By the way, people in Hollywood change their numbers all the time. Everbody has a new number all the time!"

    "This has happened a few times - I would meet the same person at another event, maybe like a year later. And they were like 'Oh my God, Trevor, we gotta hang out, let me get your number.'

    "And I would say 'I think you have my number' but they would say 'Oh, I changed phones...' and I would put my number in their phone and on the screen, it would just pop up. They already had it!"
