If you take away the inflated salaries and award shows, stars are just like us. They, too, have awkward celebrity encounters that help keep the ego in check. This time around, Friends alum Matthew Perry shared his amazing experience meeting M. Night Shyamalanthe director behind The Sixth Sense and The Village—15 years ago.
