The world of Hollywood is surprisingly small with many celebrities having connections with each other. With so many events like award shows and galas bringing celebrities together regularly, there have been a lot of awkward celebrity encounters with other celebrities. Here we have compiled a list of some pretty awkward interactions between famous celebrities.
1) Margot Robbie and Prince Harry
At a housewarming party in London, Margot Robbie mistook the Royal Prince for singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran. She took pictures with the redheaded man thinking it was the English singer but it was Prince Harry.
2) Sophie Turner and Justin Bieber
Sophie Turner had a major crush on Justin Bieber. She met him in Miami and after introducing herself she ran into the closet and cried for five minutes. After composing herself, she and her now-husband Joe Jonas walked out of the closet, and when Bieber asked Jonas about her, Jonas pointed at Turner and she gave a really awkward ‘Hi’ by sticking out her tongue and throwing a peace sign.
3) Kevin Costner and Madonna
Kevin Costner met Madonna backstage at one of her concerts. Costner told her that her concert was “neat”, to which she replied, “Anybody who says my show is ‘neat’ has to go”. She later apologized to Costner for the incident.

Salma Hayek met Eminem when he unexpectedly appeared at the 92nd Academy Awards. Hayek posted on Instagram, explaining:
“In these pictures, it might look like Eminem and I are best friends, but what really happened is as he was walking offstage and I was getting ready to walk on stage, I was so shocked to see him that I spilled water all over him. If you examine our faces I look mortified and he looks terrified of me. As I was trying to wipe it off I impulsively hugged him and I said ‘Nice to meet you Eminem – I’m a huge fan!’ because I AM”
5) Emilia Clarke and Prince William
Emilia Clarke met Prince William at Kensington Palace for the 2018 Centrepoint Awards. She went into full stutter when she met the Royal Prince. She stated, “For whatever reason, maybe because I was so scared, I couldn’t manage to get out ‘Your Royal Highness’. So it was kind of like ‘ra…ra…’ it was pretty much all I managed.
6) Mike Birbiglia and Chris Evert
While at lunch with me he cast of Trainwreck, Birbiglia was nervous around Evert and, in trying to find common ground, told the former No. 1 tennis player, “I play tennis also.” He said he felt pretty damn dumb afterward.
7) Tom Hanks and Harry Styles
Tom Hanks and Harry Styles met backstage at an Eagles concert in L.A. in 2014. Styles was so intoxicated that he walked up to Hanks and asked him if he remembered being in movies like Saving Private Ryan and Forrest Gump. Hanks later told Griffin that, he wished to drive them to rehab himself.
