AceShowbiz - Seeing celebrities who are confident, or even narcissistic, is a normal thing for us since that's how they are supposed to be. As public figures, celebrities are expected to be able to carry themselves and charm the public with their personalities. However, there are those who are the complete opposite. These stars often struggle to make themselves comfortable and end up saying as well as doing things that will make us cringe.
When we're talking about the most awkward celebrities, Kristen Stewart will always be on the top of the list. Ever since she starred in 2008's movie "Twilight", she's found herself in an awkward situations for countless times. The girlfriend of Stella Maxwell never fails to make all of us cringe with her awkward gestures and weird action. One of her most embarrassing moments was when she dropped her trophy after giving her acceptance speech at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.
MTV Movie Awards seemed to be the event which Kristen despised the most as she made the audience uncomfortable when she decided to make out with herself after winning Best Kiss Award with Robert Pattinson and the actor was unable to attend the event. She previously tried to call some friends to help her "re-create" the kiss, including Chris Hemsworth and Taylor Lautner, but nobody came to the stage.
Of course we can't forget Kristen's ex-boyfriend who is just equally awkward, Robert Pattinson. The Edward Cullen depicter is also famous for his awkward body language and jokes. "The Lost City of Z" actor often looks lost and overwhelmed during public events. Back in 2009, he left Ryan Seacrest in the middle of an interview because Ryan asked about Kristen. Robert only managed to laugh awkwardly before pretending to admire the gift he got from the staff. He was later told by his publicist to leave.
Robert once again failed to handle a situation with elegance as he did an interview on the set of "The Rover". The fiance of FKA twigs spent the whole time awkwardly trying to swat away bugs while twitching his eyes and scrunching his nose.
Michael Cera is also famous for playing awkward characters. In fact, almost all of the characters he's played in movies have awkward personalities. Although he's quite a good speaker, he is often trapped in an awkward situation caused by his own weird action. When he attended the Sundance Festival in 2013, the "Superbad" actor fell down on the red carpet after he tried to avoid Catalina Sandino Moreno who was trying to kiss him on the cheek. When asked to pose with the actress, Michael couldn't hide his discomfort as he awkwardly wrapped his arms around Catalina.

She's known for playing awkward characters, but Zooey Deschanel turns out to be just as awkward in real life. The "New Girl" star tends to say some incoherent things during interviews, making the interviewer struggle to respond to her. One of her most awkward moments was when she was rambling while sipping her drink in an interview back in 2010. What made things worse was the fact that the interviewer was equally awkward.
During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2011, Zooey made Ellen DeGeneres a little bit upset with her bad joke. "I got there a little bit late, because there was a long line. It took a half hour to get two blocks... I don't know if you had this problem, you probably helicoptered in or something," Zooey said. "You drove yourself?" Ellen asked, to which she answered, "No, I was in a car. You know, like an automobile. You know those, right? With the wheels?"
Maybe not a lot of people know this, but Amanda Seyfried is often awkward during interviews. Although the "Mamma Mia!" star always appears confident in public, it all shatters when she starts talking. Amanda often pauses in the middle of her speech and says "ummm" or "yeahhh," initiating an awkward silence.
One of the most awkward moments for Amanda was when she admitted that she was a bit drunk during an appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman" in 2012. "Yeah, I'm pretty drunk... I'm a big fan of whiskey," she said, before continuing, "I have to go on record saying I've never done a live television after, um, noon without some kind of liquid courage."
Having an awkward personality can be really tough for celebrities since they have to make so many public appearances. Although these people can make us cringe with their antics, they are living proofs that public figures, no matter how popular they are, are still humans who can feel overwhelmed by their surroundings.
