38. Cardi B and Bono

You might not expect one of the hip-hop scene’s leading ladies to be a super fan of stadium rock giants U2. But Cardi B was left in a state of disbelief after receiving a personal note from the band’s lead singer Bono at the Grammys in 2018. The rapper exclaimed, “My god, I got a f****** note from Bono. He knows me. Nobody talk to me now.”

37. Olivia Munn and Oprah Winfrey

Of course, celebs don’t always meet their heroes in particularly glamorous surroundings. Actress Olivia Munn told E! News on the Screen Actors Guild Awards’ red carpet in 2018 that she first encountered Oprah Winfrey at the Soho House bathroom. Not that the former model was too fussed about where she bumped into the national treasure. Following a brief chat about full moons, Munn used the opportune moment to tell Oprah in no uncertain terms that she loved her.
