Even celebrities can get a bit starstruck by one another on the Red Carpet.
After arriving on the Red Carpet during the 88th annual Academy Awards, Sylvester Stallone apparently had one of those moments after he ran into fellow nominee Cate Blanchett-a moment he later gushed about with Robin Roberts.The two allegedly ran into one another and Blanchett praised him for his work in Creed, and he referred to the moment as one of the best of his life.
"That's as good as it gets," he said.
Naturally, Twitter reacted to the fact that they met, and loved it-with some even proposing a new ship for the two of them as well (but that will have to be a pipe dream as Stallone has been married to Jennifer Flavin and Blanchett has been married to Andrew Upton both since 1997).
