Celebrities are just like us, prone to awkward moments and cringe interactions that are enough to make you want to tear your hair out. And interestingly, it is when they come head-to-head with other famous faces in front of our very eyes that the real trauma occurs.

Here are 8 of the most awkward celebrity interactions that you'll struggle to forget anytime soon:

1. Mel Gibson & Ricky Gervais

The claws were out at the Golden Globes last Sunday night, with Ricky Gervais winning top prize in the scathing jabs category. And when he collided with Mel Gibson, the British comic couldn't keep from spewing a list of unsavory things about the Hollywood actor. Here's the interaction we wished had ended before it started:

2. Scarlett Johansson & John Travolta

Yep, this happened and nobody quite knows why.

Was Travolta going for the full-frontal kiss? Was he just sneaking a cheek peck? Did Scarlett just ruin it by turning her face at the wrong time? I can't even.

3. Nicki Minaj & Miley Cyrus

At the 2015 VMAs, this major case of diva beef was everything anyone basically spoke about for weeks after – "Miley, what's good?"

4. Taylor Swift & Kanye West

Yet, 2009 was the year that shit actually got real at the MTV Video Music Awards, and Kanye very famously didn't let Taylor finish when she went up to receive her award for 'You Belong With Me' in the Best Female Video category.

When he shuffled his way onto the stage to announce that the award should have actually gone to Beyoncé, the world sighed and collectively died:

5. James Corden & Patrick Stewart

The British comedian and actor Patrick Stewart came head-to-head at the 2010 Glamour awards with chat about big bellies and dying on stage. And the malice behind the words definitely outweighed the jokes.

Watch what happened – you can almost hear a pin drop:

6. Drew Barrymore & Martha Stewart

Last November, Drew Barrymore appeared alongside cooking legend Martha Stewart on Ellen and it was a right ordeal.

As the trio took to the studio's kitchen to prepare some finger food, the actress was subjected to some stellar ignoring from Martha, for what appeared to be no reason whatsoever.

The entire thing was so awkward that I could barely get through the entire clip. See if you can – here it is:

7. Randy Jackson & Ariana Grande

Sorry babes, Randy Jackson absolutely does not want to high five you, Ariana.

8. Hulk Hogan & James Blunt

We still don't know how this situation came about but one thing's clear – Hulk Hogan clearly has absolutely no clue who James Blunt is. Awks.
