Jersey Shore stars Snooki and The Situation can't help but fist pump after meeting Jen Aniston.

"She is so beautiful and so nice in person!" Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) gushed to UsMagazine.com at the CMT Music Awards Wednesday in Nashville. "That’s honestly the first time I got star struck."

Snooki said when she first saw Aniston, 41, she worked up the nerve to approach her at an MTV bash June 7 in West Hollywood.

"I was hoping she would know who I was, but I don’t think so," she told Us. "I said, ‘Hi, I’m Snooki, I’m a really big fan and you are gorgeous.’ She said, Thank you.' She was so polite. I was scared to even talk! I was nervous."  

Added The Situation (aka Mike Sorrentino): "We all said hello. We said what’s up. it was pretty cool."

The Situation, known for macking on the ladies, said he kept it cool and was on his best behavior in front of the unattached actress.

"Once she sat down, we approached her in an appropriate manner," he told Us. "We are appropriate when it comes to fame. I’m pretty popular right now, so I’m not going to rain on anybody else’s parade."

"She was just chilling and having a good time," he went on. "We went up, said hello and that was it. Definitely pretty in person."
