Getting starstruck when meeting her idol Jennifer Aniston, Selena Gomez says her legs are shaking and she immediately runs away.
Making no secret that she is a big fan of TV series "Friends" and one of its main characters Rachel, which is played by Jennifer Aniston, Selena Gomez admits she got starstruck when meeting the senior actress at Women In Film 2009 Crystal And Lucy Awards on Friday, June 12. "I was shaking!" she opens up to Just Jared Jr.
"I ran into Jennifer in the bathroom and she goes, 'Hi!' My legs started to shake and I ran. I didn't know what to do because I freaked out," she recalls. "I always say that I worship Rachel McAdams as a movie actress but for comedy - the whole reason I started my show and mannerisms, they were after Jennifer Aniston."
"It was so funny, they were playing clip reels of the work she's done and I quoted the whole thing. Every single thing she'd say, I would say it. People were sitting there laughing at me and they're like, 'Wow, you're obsessed.' I freaked out, but I was happy she got the [Crystal] Award," adds Selena.
At the awards gala, Jennifer Aniston brought home the prize for Excellence In Film. During her acceptance speech, she joked that her career and personal life had a "strange parallel".
