The world of Hollywood might be surprisingly small with many celebrities having connections with each other no one would have guessed, but of course, that doesn’t mean all stars know each other — or even like each other. With so many events, award shows and galas bringing celebrities from all facets of the industry together regularly, there have been a lot of awkward celebrity encounters with other celebrities. From not knowing one another to being rude or just downright cringe-worthy interactions, here are 8 awkward celebrity encounters:

8. Leonardo DiCaprio and Lady Gaga

In terms of awkwardness, this one is relatively mild given the superstar power of both Leonardo DiCaprio and Lady Gaga, but it certainly caused waves with fans. During the 2015 Golden Globes, both stars were attending, and when Lady Gaga was named Best Actress in a Limited Series, she didn’t care who was in her way to the stage to get her award — even Leonardo DiCaprio. The singer had to squeeze by the actor who had his arm over the back of his chair, and when she pushed by him DiCaprio gave quite the hilarious yet unintentional facial reaction. Immediately fans began sharing DiCaprio’s flinch from being touched by Lady Gaga, and while it certainly seemed awkward, DiCaprio was quick to explain it wasn’t that bad. “Oh lord — that’s trending, huh?” he told Entertainment Tonight when asked about his reaction, adding, “I just didn’t know what was passing me, that’s all!”

7. Lindsay Lohan and Harry Styles

Lindsay Lohan has had a lot of awkward interviews, sent a lot of awkward tweets, and said some strange things over the years, so it shouldn’t be surprising that she has had a few awkward celebrity interactions. Although fans only heard about this one from Lohan herself, it seems the actress once turned down Harry Styles, and didn’t know who he was. Lohan claimed that the two were staying in the same hotel, and at 2 a.m., Styles showed up at her door unannounced. “I didn’t know it was him. He was in a suit. I said, ‘Well, you’re very good-looking, can I help you?’ That was it,” she said. Lohan said she didn’t realize who he was, despite him giving his first name, and politely closed the door on him. “He was like, ‘I’m Harry. Gavin and Michael sent me here.’ I was in bed. I was like, ‘I’m going to bed but it was nice to meet you,’” she explained, adding, “It was 2 am, I had just come back from an AA meeting. I looked like s— too. I was wearing a big hotel robe, I had a slip under it. It was not a good look.” She added she didn’t really realize who it was until she told her sister the story the next day and added she didn’t think it would happen again. “I saw him in LA recently. I think it’s probably awkward on both our parts now.”
