Meeting someone you look up to can be quite overwhelming (especially so, if you're already socially awkward). No matter how many times you try to convince yourself that they're human just like you, it just doesn't work that way. Upon encountering them, you start to giggle, then the little cool sweat drops show up on your upper lip only for your mouth to open up and blurt out some one-of-a-kind nonsense to a person you were trying to impress. Wait, are we describing first dates or celebrity encounters...

Recently, one radio DJ asked his Twitter followers to share awkward encounters they had with celebrities. And boy, did they deliver! We cut down hundreds of replies to the 65 best ones, so scroll down below to read the full list and enjoy a hot cup of that good old secondhand embarrassment.
