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.

Something like this happened to my friend with Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick. It just happened that they ate at the same restaurant and were seated next to each other multiple times, and Sarah was kind of a jerk about it and thought they were stalking them. My friend had to point out to her that he and his husband had arrived and been seated first...so they were stalking them!

I had the same problem when travelling around New Zealand once. I randomly ran into Sam Neill two days in a row in two different towns. I think he thought I was stalking him.

She should be happy anyone would want to see her.
