Here Are 15 Forgotten Embarrassing Red Carpet Moments That Crack Us Up Every Time
When in public, it's not tough to feel embarrassed or have silly moments you regret. We've all had them. But imagine being recorded at a huge event while those moments take place. Well, you'll later have a good laugh for sure. Guess what? The 'later' is here and we can laugh at those silly embarrassing moments now. It comes with the package of being human. Celebrities are public humans who have to be extra conscious of such moments, especially on the carpet and it is time to remind you of these forgotten moments so we can all laugh together at the ordeal of our goofy human nature. Here are 25 of the silliest and most embarrassing moments celebrities were caught having on a red carpet in front of the whole world:
1. Zac Efron dropping a condom on the red carpet
Zac dropped a condom on the red carpet at the premiere of the children's film The Lorax before quickly realizing and snatching it up. Life is unpredictable.
2. Don't cry over spilled ashes
Sacha Baron Cohen, the Borat star, attended the Academy Awards as his character in The Dictator, and when he spilled ashes all over Ryan Seacrest, the TV host was not amused.
3. Will Smith might as well become a slap master now. Yes, the slapping history goes way back.
Vitalii Sediuk, a Russian prank journalist, enjoys putting up with celebrities on the red carpet. Unfortunately, his attempt to prank-kiss Will Smith resulted in a slap to the face.
4. Jim Carrey was caught having an existential crisis
Carrey made an awkward encounter with E! News host Catt Sadler on the red carpet of New York Fashion Week in 2017. Jim kept mentioning how nothing truly matters, and he even started circling the host at one point.
5. When Amy Schumer fell for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Amy has repeatedly demonstrated that she will do anything for a laugh. At the 2015 Time 100 Gala, the comedian pretended to fall in front of Kim and Kanye. Unfortunately, the couple ignored her and went on about their day.
6. Ma'am, your eggs
Bjork, the singer-songwriter, wore a swan-neck halter to the 73rd Academy Awards. She even brought six ostrich eggs to carefully place in her tracks, but there was a problem. Others' bodyguards kept picking them up.

7. Jamming at the Cannes Film Festival
When the Pulp Fiction theme song Misirlou by Dick Dale & His Del-Tones played on the red carpet, Quentin Tarantino actor Melanie Laurent danced away to joy at the traditionally disciplined event.

8. She takes a fall for everyone
It may have been the first time in 2013, but it was far from the last. Jennifer Lawrence was upset because she experienced her worst nightmare: a fall on the Academy Award stage in front of the world's most famous celebrities. Four years later, she would tremble on the red carpet again.
9. At the 2016 Oscars, Emma Stone awkwardly attempted to hug Damien Chazelle, and things got weird.
Emma accidentally got in the way of the director receiving congratulations from his date and Ryan Gosling, and she hilariously mouthed the words, "That was weird, sorry."
10. Kardashian flour bomb
A member of the audience decided to throw flour at the reality star while she was making an appearance at the launch of her True Reflections fragrance in 2012.
11. Dakota Johnson and Melanie Griffith argued publicly about whether she had seen Fifty Shades of Grey yet
Melanie would support her daughter no matter what, except watch a sexually explicit film starring her. When Melanie was asked if she had seen the movie, the two got into a very awkward conversation. It was an embarrassing scene.
12. Giuliana Rancic made herself awkward by asking Issa Rae the wrong question
It's difficult to research every single celebrity on the red carpet. When the E! host asked Issa what she would name her memoir if she wrote one...yes, she already wrote one in 2015...she made an awkward gaffe.
13. Terrence Howard has the secret to everlasting life. Are we sure?
Terrence is not afraid to express himself, but perhaps he should be. When discussing the possibility of retiring with a red-carpet host, the actor became extremely strange. "All energy in the universe is expressed in motion, all motion is expressed in waves, all waves are curved, so where does the straight lines come from to make the platonic solids?" he said. "There are no straight lines. So, when I took the flower of life and opened it properly, I found a whole new world of wave conjugations that expose the in-between spaces that… It's the thing that holds us all together." (Should I be taking science classes for this or philosophy?)
14. Jerry Seinfeld rejects Kesha's hug
Kesha learned the hard way that not every celebrity knows each other when she tried to hug the comedian and he refused. Not a hugger. Noted.
15. Nancy O'Dell's cringeworthy interview with Taylor Swift
I think we're all tired of the Taylor is a man-magnet stereotype, but in 2015, it was pretty alive. When she suggested that Taylor would most likely leave with both a trophy and a man, the Entertainment Tonight host found herself caught in an embarrassing moment.
