10 Celebs Who Couldn’t Stop Themselves From Screaming When They Met Their Heroes
Celebrities are often their fans’ source of admiration and affection. They appear to be so perfect that fans can scream and cry when seeing them, even if it seems impossible. The funny thing is that some celebrities proved that they are as susceptible to having idols as any of us, and their reactions to meeting them are priceless.
1. Adele and Dwayne Johnson
The 2023 Grammys was full of surprises, but one of the best moments of the evening was when host Trevor Noah approached Hello singer Adele and revealed that he had a very special surprise in store for her.
That detail turned out to be nothing more and nothing less than introducing her to her idol Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. In fact, the moment was even more emotional because, according to Trevor, Johnson has also been a big fan of the singer for a long time.
Thus, the stars starred in a tender scene where they showed their affection and admiration for each other.
2. Sarah Paulson and Madonna
In 2018, actress Sarah Paulson was caught on camera at the exact moment when she met one of her favorite singers, Madonna. And her reaction was so funny that later, on an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actress had the opportunity to tell everything that was going through her mind at that instant.
It turns out that while Paulson was modeling for the cameras on the runway, she noticed that everything had gone silent from one moment to the next and that no one was taking pictures of her. That’s when she turned around and saw Madonna standing a few feet away, and she couldn’t help but be as shocked as the photographers were to see her.
After her photo went viral on social media, the singer herself uploaded the moment to her Twitter account with the caption, “Hahahahahaha. I love you, Sarah,” to which the actress could only comment, full of emotion: “She knows my name! It’s crazy. I mean, it’s Madonna!”
3. Meryl Streep and Mark Ruffalo
In 2014, Meryl Streep, who also appeared in the Iron Lady, gave us one of the best moments in Talk Show history. While chatting with the show’s host, Graham Norton, about why she accepted her role as a witch in the movie Into The Woods, Mark Ruffalo interrupted her to give her a compliment. In response, the actress grabbed Ruffalo and kissed him on the mouth.
The actor, in shock, could do nothing but cover his face with his hands, then raised them to the sky. While Streep only commented: “I’ve been waiting for an excuse to do that all night,” showing their mutual admiration for each other.
4. Emily Blunt and The BackStreet Boys
In 2019, when Emily Blunt was a guest on The Ellen Show, the host, commenting on how well Emily sings, invited her on stage to perform a song. At first, the actress looked slightly disoriented, but that changed when it was revealed that behind the curtains was one of her favorite bands, The BackStreet Boys.
At that moment, Emily couldn’t help but let her jaw drop and get as excited as the audience to see them, and after a warm greeting, Blunt performed I Want It That Way alongside the singers.
5. Camila Cabello and the Game of Thrones stars
In 2020, Camila Cabello was the happiest woman to have been invited to Graham Norton’s show. It was a coincidence that the stars of Game of Thrones, a series of which the singer admitted to being the #1 fan, would be seated next to her.
When, after singing a song, Cabello was invited to sit with the other guests, she greeted Clarke by calling her “my queen!” Then she commented on how excited she was to meet them and even mentioned that it would take her the rest of the year to recover from that feeling.
6. Pink and Johnny Depp
On the fourth season of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Pink was chatting with the host when, out of the blue, he casually asked her about that time when she met Johnny Depp since the singer had mentioned that he and Michael Keaton are her platonic loves.
Pink answered calmly, saying it didn’t go as expected because her husband forced her to introduce herself. It was at that moment that, out of nowhere, Depp enters the stage, leaving the singer speechless and with nowhere to hide. Finally, Pink had no choice but to hug the actor and then sink into her seat, cringing with emotion.
7. Prince Harry and the Spice Girls
Prince Harry has never hidden he loves the Spice Girls. The Duke of Sussex is such a fan of the group that he even invited them to sing at his wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018.
8. Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake
Host Ellen DeGeneres is known for impressing her guests, sometimes with jokes and sometimes with nice moments. Taylor Swift was in for a pleasant surprise when DeGeneres introduced her to her longtime crush, Justin Timberlake. The singer was very excited and said: “This is the best day of my life,” after hugging the former member of the band NSYNC.
9. Kelly Pickler and Clint Eastwood
On another occasion, DeGeneres surprised country singer Kelly Pickler right after the former American Idol contestant told her how much she loves Eastwood, having grown up watching his movies. Then, the host announced who was coming, and Pickler couldn’t hold back a scream of excitement and then sat on the actor’s lap and hugged him, full of joy.
10. Adele and Jennifer Aniston
In 2014, the British singer was stunned to meet Jennifer Aniston on a red carpet in New York. But the funniest part of the meeting was revealed later on The Graham Norton Show.
The singer told guests that, at a certain point, they both went to the bathroom, and Adele got confused and called Aniston by the name of her character in Friends, Rachel. “Across the cubicle, she was like, ’How are you, honey?’ And I called her Rachel! I was like, ’Well, thank you, Rachel!’” the singer recalled.
