Apparently, even stars like Oprah Winfrey lose their s— when meeting their favorite celebrities.
In case you missed it, on Saturday, April 1, the former talk show host took to Instagram where she shared her excitement over meeting face-to-face with “This Is Us” standout star Sterling K. Brown. “Look who I just met! I was so excited,” the 63-year-old gushed. “He was so Himself. I love this guy. #sterlingkbrown #thisisus.”
In fact, the “Greenleaf” star was so thrilled following the encounter that she made a collage of photos featuring she and Brown, which she gladly posted for fans.
Not to our surprise, Winfrey’s followers were just as geeked about the meet-and-greet that they immediately chimed in with their excitement. “OMG! Is he as amazing in real life, @oprah?” wrote one fan. “Randall and Oprah!!!! Makes me so happy!!” added another Instagram user.
Even Brown himself seemed a bit star struck. “When you’re still in shock that @oprah is giving you mad love!!!!” he wrote in a post of his own, via Instagram.
Fortunately, Brown was able to pull it together for a more composed pic of the host. “When you’re able to get it together enough to look like you’re not in complete and utter shock that @oprah is a fan!” he wrote.
Of course, the Beloved movie star herself has left fellow stars in awe. Take Winfrey’s A Wrinkle in Time co-star Reese Witherspoon, who recently shared how Winfrey had the cast and crew hypnotized in the make-up room while filming in New Zealand. “She’d be like, ‘You know what book I really love?’ and everybody gets silent,” Witherspoon told Conan. “Like, pull out a pen. ‘You know the most important thing I ever learned in my life?’ and everybody’s like, you could hear a pin drop.”
