    Calm down there, Stan.

    For a lot of people, the smallest interaction with their favorite celebrity would be a dream come true. However, often, overly — ahem — zealous fans take things a little too far.

    The resulting interactions can be awkward, uncomfortable, or sometimes dangerous.

    Here are 17 of the wildest interactions between celebrities and their fans:

    1. After "Jolene" became a hit in the '70s, a Dolly Parton fan named her baby Jolene, then left the infant at the singer's gate.

    Dolly contacted the Department of Health and Human Services on the child's behalf, but she isn't sure what happened after the baby went into care.

    2. After Jessie J broke her leg, a teenage fan broke her own leg, obtained the singer's personal contact information, and sent her pictures of it.

    The fan also sent a message that said, "I will do anything to be just like you.”

    3. In 2013, Jared Leto received a fan's severed ear in the mail along with a note that said, "Are you listening?"

    Jared poked a hole in the ear so he could wear it as a necklace.

    4. A fan decided to send John Boyega a pair of nipple covers with his face on them in order to promote her start-up.

    She told him she had a GoFundMe as well.

    5. A woman confronted Matt Smith with a picture of a hedgehog, insisting that he looked just like it, then tried to kiss him.

    6. A Jonas Brothers fan preserved a dead baby shark in a tube and gifted it to the band.

    Nick Jonas told Digital Spy, "They didn't even leave a note explaining. It was just: 'Here's a dead shark.'"

    7. When Cole Sprouse got up to go to the bathroom at a restaurant, a bunch of kids followed him in and tried to check which stall he was in.

    He told Glamour, "I [did] this weird thing where I [lifted] my feet up so they can't see underneath the stall." He said that the kid who found him locked eyes with him through the gap, then turned back and led his friends outside. 

    8. Fifth Harmony cheered on a Harmonizer as he chased after their car for 20 minutes.

    The fan wrote, "I'm fully aware of what Lorde SAYS the album [Melodrama] is about and what each song is about, so do not come at me..."

    He told People, "It did scare me, but it turned out to be an innocent person. She was a girl who probably wanted to meet me and didn’t know how to do it."

    14. The day after Kaya Scodelario signed a fan's arm, the girl returned the next day to show her she'd gotten it tattooed.
