And while we’re still getting over the incredible glam displayed on the red carpet at the Emmy Awards this year, there are a number of other not-so-fabulous moments that are totally cringe. From fashion mishaps to full on feuds, we invite you to get comfortable as we recount some of the most embarrassing moments in red carpet history.

Could these have been avoided? Well, you’d think celebs have at least a little logic, especially considering they’re being watched by millions across the globe. Of course, we’re not saying they probably don’t regret such moments, cos chances are, they do, and cringe as much as we do. But certain moments simply cannot be erased from people’s brains – and it’s not just because they’ve been caught on camera and replayed dozens of times over the years!

Alas, it’s all part of the deal when wanting to be in the limelight, right? But if you prefer seeing your favorite celebs in less compromising situations, you can always watch one of their movies or series, or better yet, you can even gamble by playing an online slot that features them or any of the characters they play. You might not have known this, but has a juicy list of providers offering thousands of game titles where you can win real money.

From absurd celebrity behavior to clueless reporting, here are a couple of wildly outrageous moments witnessed on the red carpet – get the popcorn ready.

1. Bradley Cooper Got Groped

Let’s take the time to consider that if I probably ever had to meet Mr. Cooper, there’s a chance that I might behave in the exact same way; holding on and never wanting to let go. Ambushed by popular online prankster Vitalii Sediuk from the Ukraine, Bradley was strongly embraced on the red carpet, with the influencer refusing to budge. The actor seems to have laughed it off and the episode ended in good faith.

2. Will Smith Slapped a Reporter

The 2022 Oscars weren’t the only time Will Smith was involved in a high profile slapping incident, but the same thing happened during the Men in Black premier back in 2003. In this case, a fan came in for a hug and a kiss on the cheek and while Will hugged him back, it was only when the prankster tried to kiss the actor that Will was quick to slap him across the face. Once again, the man in question was Ukraine prankster Vitalii.

3. Amy Schumer Dived into Kimye

In her customary comedic spirit, Amy Schumer decided to fake falling over right in front of Kim Kardashian and her then husband Kanye West while they were posing on the red carpet during the Time 100 Ceremony of 2015. The couple barely reacted to the stunt, simply moving back and almost stepping over her while getting on with their evening – yikes.

4. Scarlett Johannsen Just Stood There

While posing on the red carpet during the 2015 Oscars, John Travolta decided it would be appropriate to hold the actress by the waist and go in for a kiss – all while Johannsen just stood there in a paralyzed fashion. She later disclosed in an interview that she was completely caught off guard and the interaction was “totally sweet and welcome”, but in reality, this photo pretty much speaks for itself.

5. Sofia Vergara’s Ex Snuck Up on Her

While giving a speech at the 2014 Angel Ball, Sofia Vergara’s ex Nick Loeb suck up behind her mid answer. Without batting an eyelid, the Colombian actress flashed a smile and ignored him completely while continuing with her interview on the red carpet – just like it never happened.

6. Sasha Baron Cohen Tipped Ashes on Ryan Seacrest

Sasha Baron Cohen, known for his fictional characters including Ali G and Borat, rocked up at the 2012 Oscars in his army outfit from The Dictator movie. For whatever obscure reason, Cohen chose to dump the entire contents of an urn onto an unsuspecting Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet – needless to say, he wasn’t impressed.

7. Angelina Jolie Fully Kissed Her Brother

From the leg-split dress to the blood vials, Angelia Jolie has had her fair share of shocking red carpet moments, but in our opinion nothing will ever top the time she smooched her brother James Haven while posing for photos  at the Academy Awards back in 2000. She lately revealed that “it was something simple and lovely,” but those downright cringey photos will live on forever.

8. Hugh Grant Got Handcuffed

Another red-carpet fail is the time a fan handcuffed herself to Hugh Grant and then revealed she had no means to open the lock after. This happened during the 2007 Music and Lyrics Premier and the actor was forced to remain attached to the perpetrator for over ten minutes before the local firefighting team were able to arrive and cut him free. She also ended up spending two hours in jail after that to pay for her crime.

9. Kesha Was Denied a Hug

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that celebrities are just normal people like the rest of us, and at times they too are starstruck. This is what appears to have happened to singer Kesha as she came across Jerry Sienfield mid-interview and asked him whether she could give him a hug. The comedian was quick to turn her down, with the singer resorting to TikTok to describe the moment as “the saddest moment of my life” – awwww.

10. Kim K Got Flour Bombed

Can you imagine what it might be like to spend countless hours getting ready for an event, only to get pelted by bags of flour the minute you arrive? Well, this happened to Kim Kardashian back in 2012 while she attended a benefit at the London West Hollywood Hotel. This attack was fueled by the fact that Kim was seen wearing furs in other events, spurring PETA activist Christina Cho to carry out the deed.

11. Shakira Got Photobombed

The 2023 Video Music Awards (VMAs) were nothing short of drama last year, with the likes of Tiffany Hadish continually harassing Shakira throughout the red-carpet event. Despite being repeatedly ignored, even when she went as far actively calling out to Shakira across the room backstage, Haddish decided to plant herself right into a selfie being taken by a fan in the end. Even after being criticized by many online, the stand-up comedian showed no remorse.

12. Mayim Bialik Reminded Us She’s Smart

Best known for her role as Amy Farrah Fowler on the legendary Big Bang Theory tv series, Bialik was asked whether people just assume she’s as smart as her TV persona by a reporter at the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Without missing a beat, the actress minded him that she also has a Ph.D from UCLA, which instantly put him in his place.

13. Rashida Jones Was Called Tropical

And speaking of reporter’s faux pas, same can be said about the TNT reporter back at the 2015 SAG Awards who told Rashida Jones she looked like she had just come off an island. “You’re very tan, very tropical,” he commented, to what she immediately replied “I mean, you know, I’m ethnic” – burn.

14. Gigi Hadid Snubbed Harry Styles

During the 2015 American Music Awards, a red-carpet reporter brought Gigi Hadid over to meet the One Direction band before the show. The video shows the model hugging all of the band members apart from Harry Styles, which happened to be her close friend Taylor Swift’s ex.

15. Kate Hudson Got Questioned About a Phantom Oscar

Another mega fail on the red carpet happened at the 2023 Oscars when George Pennachio, a prominent ABC reporter asked Kate Hudson if she knew what it was like to have won an Oscar. Following the awkward silence, Hudson reminded the reporter that she had indeed never won an Oscar and wouldn’t know, “I’m sure it’s amazing” she gracefully replied.
