British actress Emilia Clarke revealed she once met Beyoncé and made a complete fool out of herself.
The “Me Before You” star appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night to promote the next episode of “Game Of Thrones” airing Sunday night, reported Page Six. Beyoncé approached Clarke at an Academy Awards after-party to talk about the HBO hit series.
“[Beyoncé] voluntarily came up to me, open-faced, like, ‘I wanna talk to this girl,’” Clarke told Kimmel. “And I just messed it up. She was clearly a fan, and I ruined it.”
“I think I started crying. Exactly that noise came out of my mouth. And she was like, ‘Hey, this is uncomfortable now. I thought you’d be cool. You’re not cool. Bye.’ And I was like, ‘No, can I get you a drink?’” Clarke added. (RELATED: Taylor Swift Accused Of Imitating Beyoncé’s Coachella Performance At Billboard Music Awards)
Clarke confirmed that Jay-Z was also there for the embarrassing moment and that she would love a second chance, saying, “I absolutely love her. It breaks my heart how much I messed it up.”

Yes @time and I both called in the morning to make sure we would be colour coordinated. A DREAM of a night, thought provoking powerful insightful humans wanting to make a difference, and then dance. ???????? And I didn’t tell anyone how @gameofthrones ends! Success all round. Not forgetting these perfect legends of their crafts for making me look fresh and clean @fulviafarolfi @benskervin @petraflannery @narrativepr @dolcegabbana @dgbeauty #❤️ #???? #????
I love seeing when stars react like regular humans when meeting other celebrities. It reminds me that they are human just like us. I’m almost positive I’d mess up meeting Beyoncé even worse than Clarke did.
Maybe by actually crying.
