Austin Butler Says Ryan Gosling Left Him So Starstruck He Couldn’t Even Say Hello

Austin Butler, Hollywood’s shining star and our very own relatable goofball, recently admitted that he’s just as prone to fanboy moments as the rest of us mere mortals.

Picture this: the 32-year-old heartthrob from *The Bikeriders* had an encounter that left him so flustered, he might as well have been a teenager at a boy band concert. Despite his superstar status, Austin found himself in full-blown shy mode, all because of another A-list celebrity.

During a chat on TODAY, Austin spilled the beans about a recent run-in with none other than Ryan Gosling. But did they share a bro-hug or exchange cool nods? Nope! Our Elvis sensation went full ninja and actively avoided the encounter.

“I was just telling this story yesterday about getting starstruck by Ryan Gosling recently,” Austin confessed, probably blushing. “It’s when you don’t expect to see somebody… So I saw him outside of a hotel that I was staying in, and I had to go into another door.”

Yes, you read that right. Austin Butler, the guy who played Elvis, ducked into another door to dodge the swoon-worthy Gosling. “I couldn’t say hello. I grew up admiring him so much,” he added, probably kicking himself for the missed opportunity.

When reminded that he himself is a huge celebrity, Austin’s response was adorably humble: “I know. But that doesn’t feel real.”

Even Hollywood’s finest can turn into shy schoolkids around their idols. So, the next time you trip over your words meeting a celeb, just remember: Austin Butler is right there with you, hiding behind a hotel door.
