Count your lucky stars that your awkward encounters aren't recorded for the entire world to see. 

Kylie Jenner at the 2017 Met Gala however wasn't that lucky. Sat beside Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, she could not have been more bored by the seating arrangements. Besides generally looking unamused by her company, she also spent the rest of the evening looking at her phone.

Amy Schumer's gonna Amy Schumer and there's little we can do about it other than cringe.

It was at a Time Magazine event that she decided to throw herself at Kanye West's feet as Kim Kardashian followed.

Why exactly? Who knows. Kanye was definitely not sticking around to find out as he sauntered on ignoring the fallen comedienne on the floor.

Meeting your ex is always kind of awkward. What's more awkward is trying to do your job as a Victoria's Secret model in lingerie as he sings in your face.

Good thing is, she looked hot doing it.

There's really no story we can provide here. Just two super awkard people engaging in a super awkward hug with a mile wide cringe radius.

We want to unsee this.

At the very same event that John travolta graced us with 'Adele Dazeem', he decided to hug ScarJo in the most awkward way possible. 

Creeping on from the back is not a good look but Johansson said the hug was "very sweet and totally welcome".

Do you know what's more awkward than being in an uncomfortable hug, being denied one live on camera.

When Kesha tried to hug Jerry Seinfeld, not once but twice, the comedian had to politely say, "No, Thank you."

Talk about cringe.

When you run into your friend's ex, you gotta have her back. Gigi Hadid decided to hold up the girl code when she ran into her friends Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner's ex Harry Styles. 

Luckily the snub was caught on camera and she decided to hug every member of the band One Direction except for Styles. The two did shake hands and Harry awkwardly tapped her arm. Weird.

Have you ever waved back at someone who was never waving at you? This video has the same energy x10. 

Lea Michelle really tried to reach out to legend Jessica Lange but the actress deemed her not worthy as she swiftly walked on by not acknowledging her.

The jury is still out on this one as this is often shared as a wholesome moment but the line between wholesome and cringe is a thin line and boy does this moment walk it.

Jack Nicholson decided to lurk behind Jeniffer Lawrence as she was interviewing after her Oscar win telling her she looked like his 'old girlfriend' and that he will be 'waiting'.

To his credit, Lawrence was playing along with the jokes and seemed entertained asking whether she looked like a 'new girlfriend'.
