There are celebrities, and then there’s Meryl Streep. And it turns out celebrities freak out over Streep just like the rest of us.
Take Vanessa Hudgens, for example. During her Monday (Jan. 20) appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the former “High School Musical” star nearly lost her mind after a backstage run-in with the three-time Oscar winner.
“Vanessa is freaking out right now,” host Ellen DeGeneres tells the audience.
“You have no idea,” a shaken Hudgens replies. “I was back there wiping off the tears. I’m still so emotional. She’s just so amazing.”
Hudgens’ gushing didn’t stop there: “She’s so sweet. I got to meet her back there and she’s so beautiful. It’s mind-blowing. She just radiates light and love and talent. She’s amazing. It’s crazy.”
DeGeneres kept Hudgen’s freakout going, gifting the actress with the mug Streep had drank out of during her appearance earlier on the show.
“I’m never washing it!” Hudgens exclaims before ramping up the crazy: “I’ll just lick it.”
“Now you’re getting weird,” DeGeneres jokes, taking the gift back.
