Stars, they’re just like Us! She may be a huge Hollywood starlet in her own right, but on Tuesday, Sept. 22, Anne Hathaway became a giddy fangirl at the NYC premiere of her own film The Intern when none other than Mariah Carey walked the red carpet right behind her.
In hilarious footage captured by The Associated Press, the Oscar-winning actress, 32, is in the middle of an interview when she suddenly notices that the “We Belong Together” singer is directly behind her.
“I’m freaking out. Like, she’s two arm’s lengths away right now,” she tells the reporter as she grins goofily at the camera, trying her best not to make it obvious that she’s geeking out over Carey.
“It’s just the best glamorous ever,” she says at another point, unable to articulate her emotions. “That’s not even a sentence, ’it’s just the best glamorous ever.’ I went to college. I didn’t graduate!”
Hathaway (who attended but did not graduate Vassar College) then gets flustered when the reporter suggests she go up and introduce herself to the music legend.
“No, no, no, it’s fine, it’s fine,” she says, shaking her head. “I’m gonna meet her when the time is right.”
Hathaway isn’t the only famous face to get flustered by other A-listers. At the 2013 Oscars, Jennifer Lawrence memorably freaked out when Jack Nicholson interrupted her interview post-Best Actress win for Silver Linings Playbook to tell her she “did such a beautiful job.”
Ever the sassy one, Lawrence fired back, jokingly admonishing the actor for “being really rude” and interrupting her segment.
When he left the scene, the then-22-year-old actress all but keeled over.
