What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done in front of your heroes? Luckily (or perhaps unfortunately), I’ve never really met anyone famous, so I haven’t had much of a chance to completely mortify myself in the presence of greatness.
What’s the worst you’ve ever embarrassed yourself in front of someone you super admired? One time Tommy Kail introduced me to Sara Bareilles & I was so overwhelmed, I looked her directly in the face & just said, “oh wow.”😳🤦🏻♀️

Also that one time (2004-ish) I was in my Bratz jammies and went to grab a water bottle from the garage fridge only to come face to face with Nick Cannon smoking a joint with my sister. I had a weird childhood…

literally just last weekend I met Jonah hill and I was so nervous I called him Seth Rogen… then I asked him for a pic and he was like “you don’t have to get a picture with me if I’m not who you think I am I don’t want you to be disappointed” 😂 pic.twitter.com/BVd1xaGGZE

I met Sophie Turner (Sansa from Game of Thrones) and asked her to sign my poster, she tried but my pen didn’t work so I said “I’ll make it work” and proceeded to scribble on it until it ripped. One of her people felt sorry for me and lent me a pen 🤷🏼♀️

I was turning onto a street in downtown Toronto when Rainn Wilson walked in front of my car. I was so surprised my foot accidentally hit the gas instead of the brake and I almost mowed the poor guy down.

In 2010 I was honored to meet the First Lady and upon shaking her hand I said “Wow, can I take your picture?” This is the result! AGHHHHHHHHH pic.twitter.com/FAK5Btvbcc

Unprepared @ the Hamilton stage door. Only paper I had was a Something Rotten understudy filler. Handed it to Lin. He took a picture with me & (very nicely) handed it back, saying "I'm not sure what to do with this?" I laughed into the air, became invisible, flew away

I met Prince William at a nightclub several years ago. After a few vodkas I built up the (false) confidence to say hi. But, instead of saying ‘hi’ I panicked and said ‘your grandma is on my money’.

Yeah, maybe it’s good I’ve never really met a celebrity before. I would undoubtedly ruin my own life.
