Although I tend to imagine that most actors and actresses are far too cool and hip to ever get butterflies around their peers, that's simply not the case.

Even some of the most famous faces on the planet have celebrity crushes of their own. Now imagine being in a position where the chances of running into them are pretty high. For me, every red carpet would be a new opportunity for me to gawk at my idols. I'll never understand how they're able to keep it together so well.

So here are nine celebrities who had a hard time keeping their cool around other famous people. See? They freak out around other famous people just like us, and it's one of the most adorable and relatable things ever.

1. Anne Hathaway and Mariah Carey

Anne Hathaway stood just an arm's length away from Mariah Carey at the red carpet for her upcoming movie The Internship. Naturally, the Oscar-winning actress felt a bit intimidated by the singer's presence.

2. Ariana Grande and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

After performing on The Tonight Show, Ariana Grande seemed pretty taken aback when she came face to face with the show's guest, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

3. Mark Ruffalo and Paul Rudd

In true Mark Ruffalo style, he was the most adorable dad ever when walking behind Ant-Man's Paul Rudd at Comic-Con. Yes, Mark, that's Paul Rudd.

4. Jennifer Lawrence and Jack Nicholson

Being a pretty young actress, it's not that surprising that JLaw gets nervous when seeing the actors she grew up idolizing in real life. Take Jack Nicholson for instance.

5. Jennifer Lawrence and Damian Lewis

Or Damian Lewis! A huge fan of Homeland, she couldn't help but get flustered when being interviewed right next to Brody.

6. Jennifer Lawrence and Jeff Bridges

Last Jennifer Lawrence one, I promise. At Comic-Con a few years ago JLaw got to ask a quick question to the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges.

7. Beyoncé and pretty much everyone... like Anna Kendrick

8. ...Hugh Jackman

9. ...Christina Milian

10. ...And the women of Orange Is the New Black

And this is just a handful of the many, many accounts of Beyoncé encounters. It goes without saying that no matter your star status, Beyoncé is in a galaxy all of her own.
