Actress Monique Coleman was so thrilled to meet her heroine Whoopi Goldberg on U.S. TV show The View on Friday (07Sep07), she burst into tears.
The emotional High School Musical star started crying almost immediately after she sat down next to the bemused comedienne-turned-chat show host, who tried to calm the 26-year-old with a hug.
Coleman told Goldberg, "I feel like a little girl right now because I never get starstruck and I've loved you since... (1986 movie) Jumpin' Jack Flash. I've watched your one woman show over and over."
She jokingly added, "Can I come to your house for Thanksgiving?!"
