4 Socially Awkward Celebrities Steven Folkins

I think we can all probably agree that Kristen Stewart is the most socially awkward celebrity in the game right now. She is always fidgeting, playing with her hair and biting her lip in interviews and on the red carpet. At this point she must know she does all that and just doesn’t care to correct it – it’s her thing, right? People keep talking about her.

People (not just the magazine) talk about other socially awkward celebrities typically after a weird interview or maybe even a string of awkward interviews. Take Amanda Seyfried, for instance. During many of her interviews she falls back on saying “um” or “yeah” constantly, making her seem a little awkward. She has admitted, though, in an interview with David Letterman, that she suffers from stage fright and before coming out for the interview has a cocktail to calm her nerves. This is something she has to do before any of her talk show interviews, she admitted as well.

Jay Baruchel has been cast in many movies as ‘the awkward guy’ and it has been because that’s how he is in real life. Baruchel says he can play awkward “with [his] eyes closed.

Michael Cera has played awkward characters like Paulie in Juno and George Michael in Arrested Development among many others. He’s made a career out of being awkward and it seems as though he is the same way in real life too.

  1. I can completely relate with the social awkwardness! Especially Amanda Seyfried’s clip…I have used liquid courage on many occasions! It’s nice to know that I’m not alone!

  2. You forgot Aubrey Plaza…

  3. You just mentioned all my faves! Probably because I’m super awkward too… Jay Baruchel is my secret crush… shhh
    I actually think it’s refreshing to see people be themselves on talk shows.. so many actors have this “persona”, and it just comes off as arrogant and phony. At least these guys are courageous enough to be themselves in the public eye.. and no, I don’t think Kristen Stewart does it because it’s her “thing”… She’s just trying to get through the interview alive…

  4. That video of Kristen Stewart has like every single awkward mannerism in her arsenal; I mean, bonus for the neck roll!. if it was’t for the body language, those inappropriate jokes would just come off as genius. Makes me feel a little less out there, so thanks KS! (and Steven!)
