0 11

Even celebrities themselves can get starstruck, as everyone has an idol they look up to.

The list is long and varied, going all the way back to when Natalie Wood met Elizabeth Taylor in the 1950s when she was just a young girl and Liz was a world famous glamazon.

More recently, Kim Kardashian famously went into fangirl around Cher as seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. 

And Jennifer Lopez, who loves Barbra Streisand so much, she incorporated Babs’ iconic film The Way We Were in her new movie musical This Is Me… Now.

Here is a look at the celebrities who have melted down when meeting their idols.

Kim Kardashian has had a girl crush on Cher since she was a little girl growing up in Beverly Hills.  Seen in 2023

KIM KARDASHIAN, 43, AND CHER, 77

Kim Kardashian has had a girl crush on Cher since she was a little girl growing up in Beverly Hills.

And over the years she has paid tribute to her fellow Armenian-American with photo shoots and red carpet appearances.

The two have even met several times.

Kim reportedly ‘totally fangirled’ when she saw Cher at the opening of the icon’s Broadway show in 2018 which covered her early years with Sonny Bono.

She even gave the singer her new cell phone number, she said.

Kim was overheard telling Today star Hoda Kotb that she and Cher ‘exchanged phone numbers,’ with an onlooker saying, ‘She was totally fangirling,’ according to PageSix.

Kim was with rapper Kanye West at the time; together they have four children.

They were also seen arm-in-arm at The Promise film premiere in April 2017.

In September 2017, Kardashian paid tribute to her ‘number one style icon’ Cher on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.

And the Turn Back Time singer tweeted her approval. 

This comes after Cher said she approved of Kim dressing up as her in 2017 for Halloween in October with Keeping Up with The Kardashians star Jonathan Cheban who now goes by FoodGod.

The star donned a stitch-perfect Cher costume that amazed everybody – including Cher herself.

After Kim and Cheban arrived at Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford’s Casamigos annual costume party, the icon joined the praise on Twitter.

‘Dream Of India’Is Perfect 4U,&@BobMackie at his best,’ she added, giving a shout out to her long-time costume designer.

Kim was delighted to have received a blessing from the legend herself.

‘I love you so much!!!,’ she tweeted back.

Kim looked sensational as she bared her abs in a flowing yellow co-ord that flattered her tanned complexion. 

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star channeled the iconic singer in bohemian sheer flared trousers, matched with a crop top boasting long, trailing sleeves.

She nailed the poker straight center parted hair, which hid a pair of large gold hoop earrings.

Kim and Cher of course also share an ethnicity as well as their good looks, being arguably the two most famous Armenian-Americans on the planet.

In 2018 she told Vogue that she greatly admires the Oscar-winning Moonstruck actress and is happy to copy her style moves.

But she also gave credit to Cher for breaking barriers decades ago. 

‘There is no one who has taken more fashion risks,’ said Kardashian.

‘Going to the Oscars in a sheer thong! She did it first. She did everything first.’

 

JENNIFER LOPEZ, 54, AND BARBRA STREISAND, 81

Jennifer Lopez’s idol is Barbra Streisand, 81.

That is probably they both are from New York, worked their way up the ladder to tackle both singing and acting, and have fought to develop their own projects.

Lopez, 54, has made her love for Streisand known over the years.

She was seen watching Barbra’s movie The Way We Were with Robert Redford in her new movie This Is Me… Now.

In the scene, Babs is seen telling Redford’s goofy but handsome rich boy that he needs to work harder to be the best that he can be; JLo seems to relate to her idol.

And in 2020, Lopez modeled a Streisand sweatshirt in her first-ever campaign for Coach.

The actress got the seal of approval from none other than the Hollywood icon herself.

Posting a photo from the campaign onto her Instagram account, Barbra gushed, ‘Love this! Hi @jlo — nice to see you wearing my face! @coach @stuartvevers.’

The shout-out certainly caught JLo’s attention, who was elated to have received the thumb’s up from Barbra. 

‘You know you’re my idol!’ the songstress commented, along with a red heart and kissing face emoji.

Jennifer has also met Barbra. 

They first came face to face at an Oscar party in the early 2000s. It was the exclusive The Night Before and the year was 2002 or 2003 said Lopez.

‘She came up to me and I was like, “Oh my God, I’m such a huge fan.” And she goes, “How do you do it?” And I go, “Do what?” she goes, “Be so famous?” I was like, “What?”

Like Lopez, Streisand has sung, made movies, and even sung in her movies; seen in 1969 on Hello Dolly!

The Bronx native was ‘puzzled’ by her questions.

After all, Barbra is even more famous than Lopez.

Jennifer said: ‘I was like, “You’re Barbra Streisand.”‘

Babs then told Jen that she didn’t like all the attention, as she said, ‘I have terrible stage fright.’

Lopez was taken aback. 

‘She was telling me all these things. I was really surprised. I never thought of her that way. It really stayed with me,’ the star shared, admitting that Barbra was ‘everything I thought she would be.’

BRIE LARSON, 34, AND JENNIFER LOPEZ, 54 

Brie Larson proved even the A-list can become starstruck at the Golden Globes as she crumbled in the presence of one of her idols. 

The Oscar-winning star, 34, who won the Best Actress Academy Award for Room in 2018, hit the red carpet outside the Beverly Hilton where she chatted to Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier – however things soon ground to a halt. 

Once Brie spotted Jennifer Lopez she said: ‘Oh my god, I’m going to cry. I can’t deal with J,Lo’, before the actress and singer reached her and she said: ‘You mean so much to me!’

Jennifer hugged her and said ‘Oh my God, don’t make me cry!’

Brie went on to reveal to Jennifer’s 1997 Selena Quintanilla biopic Selena was the  reason she became and actress: ‘I saw Selena and it made me want to be an actor and you’ve always meant so much to me.’

As a delighted Jennifer replied: ‘Oh my God, don’t make me cry!’ the two women embraced and wiped tears away in a heartwarming exchange, before Brie and said: ‘I’m going to have to go do a shot of tequila or something’.

During the chat, Brie also said: ‘I just… it’s been a dream of mine, so thank you so much! Your work ethic is so important, thank you.’ Jennifer replied, ‘Thank you, oh, you’re a sweetheart, thank you’. .

After the tearful duo parted ways on the red carpet, Jennifer stated: ‘How sweet is that?… It’s amazing that you – she brought up the movie Selena – that so many years later it still touches people. It’s very moving to me too.’

Brie has been candid about her artistic inspiration in the past, having previously revealed that late director John Cassavetes is one of her idols. 

She said in October: ‘All his films have continued to inspire me—every aspect of them. He’s one of the only filmmakers where I will put on the DVD just to listen to his commentary. His ideals, his pursuit of the road less travelled…

‘And travelled in a way that is curious, thought-provoking, and dangerous—have always excited me. I take his box set with me to every set. Each film has an incredible backstory and leaves me thinking, How the hell did he pull that off?!’

KELLY CLARKSON, 41, AND MERYL STREEP, 74 

Kelly Clarkson lost her composure when seeing her idol on the red carpet at the Golden Globes in January 2018.

She was standing on a stage as she looked down at the Oscar-winning Heartburn star, 74.

The pop singer, 41, startled Ryan Seacrest when she screamed, ‘Oh my god, that’s Meryl.’ She covered her mouth and touched her face in excitement. Meryl looked up and smiled.

‘What happened?’ Seacrest said.

He was helping Kelly down the stairs as she had on very high heels and a long gown.

‘I thought you tripped,’ added Ryan. ‘Oh, you saw Meryl Streep. My heart just dropped. I thought you fell, tripped down the stairs.’

Meanwhile, Clarkson acted like any normal fan and screamed and nearly cried: ‘Can I meet you? I am such a fan!’ said the American Idol veteran.

‘I’ve adored you since I was like 8,’ she said. Then she got to the bottom of the steps where Meryl was waiting and gave the Sophie’s Choice star a big hug.

Then weeks later at the Grammys, Seacrest surprised her with a permanent reminder of her meltdown.

He presented the country music star with a pillow that had an image of Clarkson first spotting Streep on one side, and on the other an image of the two together with the words ‘Meryl & Kelly’ written across the bottom.

Clarkson laughed and appeared thrilled with the gift.

‘This is totally going on our bed. My husband won’t care,’ she told Seacrest, adding: ‘I love her.’
