Even though it seems like Harry Styles is the coolest cucumber in the fridge, it turns out he can be just as awkward and embarassing as the rest of us when confronted with certain A-List legends.

One person who witnessed this with her very own eyes is Kathy Griffin - a comedian who is now releasing a book about her most hilarious celebrity run-ins. So what happened when Harry met Tom?

The following extract from Kathy Griffin's Celebrity Run-Ins: My A-Z was initially published by Us Weekly, and will make you cringe so hard it will actually put your health in danger.

Oh Harry. What were you thinking, pal?

"An allegedly very, very wasted Harry Styles walked into the room and made a beeline for Tom Hanks.

Harry: Re-membah when you wuz savin' Private Ryan and had to bring 'im back to 'is mum? Re-membah?

Tom Hanks politely replies with caution: Yes.

Harry: Re-membah when you wuz in Cappin Phillips? And the other guy sez, 'Oim' the capn' now"? 'Membah?

Tom, trying go figure this young man out: Yes, yes, I do remember.

Harry: Was that scaarrry?

Even I wasn't expecting that question. I turned to Tom: Yeah, Tom, was that scary?

Tom, clearly trying to save Harry Styles from himself (in a way Candle Jenner never could): Harry, have you met my friend, the comedian Kathy Griffin? (Tom really hit the word comedian hard.)

Harry was unfazed and returned his attention to the great Tom Hanks again …with the questions. It was like he was doing a memory brain teaser.

Harry: Re-membah when you wuz Forrest Gump? 'Membah? 'Membah?

Tom, still indulging: I was, yes.

Harry: You wuz always runnin'? Membah?

Yes, he was asking Tom Hanks if Tom remembers playing the role of Forrest Gump, for which he won the Academy Award. I can't point out here enough how Harry Styles seemed to think it was him mission to make sure Tom Hanks did not forget the names of any of his films or the fact that he had starred in these films.

Harry: That was a good film.

Tom: I do remember.

Without explanation, Harry Styles turned and pivoted away. Tom Hanks had been pretty much frozen in the same sport during this magical and epic exchange. Tom's answer was perfect and delivered very dryly:

Tom: Sometimes, I just want to drive them to rehab myself."

As embarassing as this is, it's kind of funny to imagine Harry as a fan for once rather than the idol people are clamouring over.
