Sometimes, you meet a celebrity and they make your day. But it can also be awkward. And comedian John Field is much more interested in the latter rather than the former.

This autumn, he asked Twitter users: "What's the worst interaction with a celebrity you've ever had?" From Devi Lovato and Kid Rock to Jessica Alba and Cillian Murphy; turns out, there's no shortage of those.

Of course, we must remember that everyone has a bad day and nobody owes us anything just because we heard them on a stage or saw them on a screen. Plus, some people tend to exaggerate. But with that being said, it's still a pretty entertaining thread to say the least.

We managed to get in touch with John and he was kind enough to have a little talk with us about the now-viral thread.

"I came up for the idea for the tweet after reading a thread of 'bad celebrity interactions' and wanted to tweak the wording just a little bit so people would basically give me answers about where they were the bad people in the stories," he told Bored Panda.

After scrolling through the replies, John thinks the funniest story belongs to Andy Richter who had a seriously weird interaction on the set of New Adventures of Old Christine. "It's one of those awkward experiences I relate to."

"As a person who works in a customer service job, I get the sense that when celebs are out in public they have to be 'on' all the time like when I'm dealing with customers, which seems exhausting," the content creator added.

Which is true. Billie Eilish, for example, has had a hard time adjusting to her popularity. "I don't mean this in a necessarily negative way, but I sort of lost my teenage years, because this all started when I was 13," the singer told Dutch channel 3voor12.

"There is no training, there's no like, let me go to a school that's going to teach me how to be famous. Also, that would suck. That would be trash school ... Famous people suck," she added. "Fame is trash."

Okay, David Tennant is the final boss when it comes to celebs for me. I don't think I could speak any English in front of him.

"The original thread I read that inspired my post was about people complaining about 'bad celebrity encounters' and halfway through, it felt like the people approaching the famous people in the story were the rude ones, not the celeb, and so it made me a little sympathetic to people who have the limelight on them all the time," John said.

The man also has a YouTube channel where he explores all sorts of open-ended questions. "I have short sketches and long essays on death and crap!"
