Olympic skier Julia Mancuso may have nabbed two silver medals in Vancouver -- but she still got star struck after meeting Vince Vaughn at a hockey game.

"I got Vince Vaughn to sign my hockey ticket," she told UsMagazine.com Monday afternoon.

Mancuso, 25, sat in front of Vaughn, 39, and his wife, Kyla Weber, 31, at the USA. vs. Finaland game last Friday.

"They were funny. They were sitting right behind us, just screaming out, like, 'Go USA!' and talking smack. It was hilarious," she tells Us. "They were quite high energy."

After the U.S. went on to beat Finland 6 to 1 (before losing the gold medal to Canada Sunday night), Mancuso "snuck in a quick hi" to the comic.

Mancuso also opened up to Us about her feud with Lindsey Vonn, 25, calling it "blown out of proportion." (Mancuso said attention paid to Vonn's Sports Illustrated pic hurt the team, Vonn said she was "bummed out" by the accusation. Mancuso was unable to defend her 2006 gold downhill title after Vonn wiped out on the hill before her -- causing her to have to repeat the grueling run.)

Still, they're not exactly BFFs.

"We see each other just only really at team meetings. We both do pretty much our own thing," Mancuso says. "She has a lot of people around that aren't working for the US ski team helping her, and I also have a couple of people traveling with me that aren't part of the US ski team, so we... both have our own entourages and kind of do our own thing."

Mancuso -- who was cheered on by her entire family (dressed in tiaras!) as she medaled in the downhill and combined -- will have another chance for gold in 2014.

"I'm going to keep going," she says. "You know, got to get some more gold revenge."

In the meantime, Mancuso is heading to Germany next week for another competition.

"I'll probably get to go on vacation in, like, April," she says.
