Laverne Cox Got a Christmas Card From Beyonce, Almost Couldn’t Handle It

Yes Laverne, there is a Santa Claus! Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox got one special Christmas gift this week from none other than Beyonce Knowles.  

The Emmy-nominated actress, 30, shared a photo via Instagram on Friday, Dec. 19 of the holiday present that was sent by Queen Bey, 33. The multi-pic shot features a note reading, "HAPPY HOLIDAYS Love Beyonce," a green sweatshirt emblazoned with the "Partition" lyrics "cake by the pound," and a shot of the singer in a Christmas sweater.

"When I opened this holiday card a few days ago and read Love @beyonce I literally fell to the floor," Cox captioned the image. "I was on the floor of my apartment. I have witnesses. Love the #CakeByThePound sweatshirt. Thanks Bey for the gift. I have had an awesome year and this is certainly a highlight."

"Happy holidays Mrs. Carter to you and your beautiful family," continued the star, who appeared on the cover of Time magazine's "The Transgender Turning Point" issue. "Thanks for all the amazing music and endless inspiration you've given to me and so many over the past 16 years. Since No No No I have been saying YASSS YASSS YASSS! #QueenBey foever."

Cox has voiced her admiration for Beyonce in the past, telling the New York Daily News this past June, "I live for Beyonce, I live for Jay Z less, but I live for Beyonce."
