At least when short people are not trying to hug you in front of a bunch of cameras, then it’s not so fun. In fact, we challenge you to find us one photo out there in the world in which a shorter person tries to hug a much taller person over the shoulder without the taller person awkwardly having to bend their body over to complete the exchange of affection.
This is exactly what is happening here between George Clooney and Drew Barrymore.
An Awkward Moment Or?
A dance-off! This is the natural guess to be thought of in the context of this photo. The next question to be asked is, who are these people tumbling as if they are in a big stampede?
They are actors Nicole Kidman and Adrien Brody being caught on cam just as Kidman knocked brody down at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit Gala. Well, if you're going to be knocked down by anyone, it may as well be Nicole Kidman.
When Wind Kicks in
This photo is, sadly, the paparazzi's most sought-after type of photography. It is the moment when celebs have wardrobe malfunctions that end up exposing what should be kept private.
Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall seemed to have caught hers on time before the cameras did when her dress came undone after a gust of wind at the Brit Awards in 2017. "No, not me! For I am Little Mix, and no gust of wind will ruin my day!"
This Could Be an Awkward Moment
If you are a bigot, that is. To us, it just looks like two perfectly normal men who are sharing a big-spoon little-spoon hug at the "Logan Lucky" UK Film Premiere.
Adam Driver and Channing Tatum are clearly great friends and want the world to know. We are bros, we love each other very much, and there is nothing we love more than sharing a hug together.
The Big No No
Everyone knows that when you go to an event, you want to make sure you are not wearing the same thing as someone. If you do, usually an abstract hierarchy decides who was in the wrong and who was in the right about whose fault it is.
But you can't expect Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen to magically know what the other is wearing. There should be a person whose job it is to know what everyone is wearing so there are no awkward wardrobe commonalities at these things.
