You know the old saying – stars, they're just like us. They make trips to the grocery store, they go for jogs around town (though somehow end up looking far less sweaty) — and they also have moments of pure, unadulterated fangirling.  

Here are 14 hilariously delightful times celebrities were starstruck by other famous people.  

Camila Cabello literally bent a knee for Emilia Clarke.

While on "The Graham Norton Show," singer Camila Cabello shared that she was pretty starstruck to meet Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on HBO's "Game of Thrones."

"My queen," Cabello said as she approached Clarke. "I'm sorry. I would just like to say I am the biggest 'Game of Thrones' fan in the entire world ... I'm just freaking out to meet you guys."

"I've never fangirled so hard in my life," the singer added, explaining she watched all of "GOT" in a month. 

She later Instagrammed a photo of herself "bending the knee" in front of Clarke as though she were royalty. Clarke responded to by reposting the photo and writing, "GURL the feelings mutual... thank you for making me feel like a khalessi all over again."

Jennifer Garner couldn't contain her excitement over receiving a call from Julie Andrews.

Gomez waited until she was alone to express her utter excitement, as evidenced in the clip.

Cardi B met Lady Gaga at the 2019 Grammys and the pair was spotted in some adorable photos— but Cardi's admiration for Lady Gaga actually dates back further than that

"When I was a teenager Lady Gaga changed my life," she wrote in 2016. "She inspired me to be myself & be different."

Gaga responded to that tweet in 2018, telling Cardi she loved her and also responded to a video of Cardi performing Lady Gaga's hit "Bad Romance" during her high-school talent show. 

Following the Grammys, Gaga defended Cardi B from people who criticized her in the wake of her win for best rap album — the rapper was the first solo woman to win the award

"It is so hard to be a woman in this industry," she tweeted, alongside a photo of the pair. "What it takes, how hard we work through the disrespectful challenges, just to make art. I love you Cardi. You deserve your awards. Let's celebrate her fight. Lift her up & honor her. She is brave."

Jennifer Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres that she had a total fangirl moment when her fiancé Alex Rodriguez surprised her with an anniversary present: a FaceTime call with "Fixer Upper" star Joanna Gaines, according to People magazine. 

"We got a little fixer-upper next to the water, and we were like, 'Oh, we gotta fix this up, it's really a house that needs work,'" Lopez said. "I was like, wouldn't it be amazing to have (Gaines) do it for us? But she doesn't do anything outside of Waco, like nothing."

Lopez said that when she got the call, she asked Gaines to give her just a little bit of help on the design decisions for their place.
