Because of the Inverse Square Law, even the furthest celestial bodies have a gravitational pull on you.

If we take the nearest star to Earth, Proxima Centauri, at a distance from the Earth of 4.2 light years (4*10^13 km), and a mass of 5.3*10^29 lb (2.4*10^29 kg), the gravitation pull on you would be (assuming a 65 kg person) would be only 0.00000000000065 N (1.5*10^13 lb).

Before the astrologists jump on this saying that the stars affect our lives, a house fly attached to you would pull with more force.
