Not all celebrities are created equally recognizable. Some actors are so closely associated to a role they played that they're essentially invisible out of costume. Or maybe they're pop stars who love over-the-top outfits and makeup, and jeans and a T-shirt make them into someone else. They could even be mistaken for another celebrity entirely. Or maybe they're just not as famous as they thought they were, especially to their fellow clueless famous people.
There are tons of stories about stars unrecognized by fellow stars, and each encounter is incredibly awkward. True obliviousness can lead to cold or rude encounters; pretending not to recognize another famous person is also an epic way of throwing shade. All the times celebrities didn't recognize other celebrities prove that fame is always fickle, sometimes cringeworthy, and often really funny.
