6 Of The Saddest Celebrity Encounters Ever

Autographs, Insta opps, stomach butterflies—these are the things we look forward to when meeting our favorite celebrities. Sometimes, however, it doesn’t always work out that way. Reddit asked users to share their saddest experiences meeting celebrities, and they range from laughably awkward to downright sad. Saddest of all? That moment when Brad Pitt cockblocks you. The accounts come from Reddit, so take them with a grain of salt, but they’re pretty entertaining either way. Check out their stories below.

1. Michael Cera meets Michael Cera

“I saw Micheal Cera board the L at Williamsburg headed to Manhattan. He was dressed just like he did in Superbad and Juno. Juno had just released. We had an eye conversation. No words exchanged, but he was terrified I was going to speak up or ask for an autograph. I just raised an eyebrow, smiled at him, and chuckled about it to myself for the remaining 20 minute ride. He kept nervously looking back over his shoulder at me. When he got to his stop he paused and nodded at me in thanks. Almost certain he remembers this.” – Lets_Get-Weird

2. At Least Paris Hilton Said ‘Sup’

“My mom found Paris Hilton incognito in an airport, came to find me, brought me to a tiny lady in a hoodie and big sunglasses in the middle of the airport, goes, ‘Hi are you Paris Hilton?’. Then pushed me in front of her and said ‘here, say hi to my son!’ Like I was a weird birthday gift or something. She said ‘sup.’ I said ‘sup’ then she did this weird little laugh. Then my mom goes ‘okay bye!’ That was my sad and awkward meeting with Paris Hilton in an airport.” – Invader_Zirk

3. Poor Kevin Spacey

“I sat next to Kevin Spacey on the tube when I was in London with my dad. My dad was so pumped that he was next to Kevin Spacey, he’s a huge fan, but he didn’t want to ask him for a picture while we were on a crowded train so he just let him be. He was just happy to have seen him. Then this guy randomly shouts from the other side of the train, ‘Hey Kevin, how’s the acting going?’, and everyone’s faces turned to him. Felt so bad for Kevin Spacey, no one would take their eyes off him and everyone was taking photos and what not. Just felt sorry for the guy, he looked like he had just come back from a run or something and wasn’t wanting to be recognized.” – noitaerc

4. When Chris Rock Steals Your Spot in Line at 6 Flags

“I had waited an hour and a half in line for a ride at Great Adventure. Was in the front seat line so the wait was even longer. Finally, I was next in line, watching gleefully as my train pulled in. And Chris Rock and his family come walking up from the exit and are given my spot, without waiting at all. I was both sad and mad and have held a grudge against him ever since” – stinkibuttinski

5. Tom Green Counts as a Celeb (?)

“Seeing a movie in Ottawa with my mother as a child, and Tom Green was behind us all alone, looking greyish. My mom told me not to bother him because Drew Barrymore had just dumped him.” – anotherredditvirgin

6. Cockblocked by Brad Pitt

“I got cockblocked by Brad Pitt. I was an extra in World War Z and I met this girl there and we were talking and all was great until one time Brad Pitt walks by. Was very friendly to her…totally blanked me. His stunt double was a cool dude though.” – GrollTheLicker
