Bebe Rexha has met her idol, Angelina Jolie, and it looks like she got really ‘starstruck!’ The performer was in attendance at the premiere of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil since the movie’s soundtrack features Rexha’s song titled ‘You Can’t Stop the Girl.’
That is where she got the opportunity to meet the main actress of the movie, none other than Angelina Jolie herself, who portrays the titular character.
Not too long before that dream became a reality for her, Rexha chatted with ET, having nothing but positive things to say about her role model.
‘Anything [she] does I absolutely love. She’s just always inspired me. She’s kinda always been that bada** chick [and] I feel like this role is perfect for her,’ the singer gushed.
She was then asked if they had met yet, to which Rexha responded that they hadn’t yet but was, of course, hopeful since they were both set to walk the red carpet at the event.
She did mention that ‘I just saw her and I’m so starstruck. She’s like, you know, she is iconic… She’s amazing! I love her.’
Sure enough, soon after the chat with the news outlet, the two ladies finally met and it was all very adorable and sweet!
‘You’re so inspiring. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this,’ she told her idol as they hugged.
The actress praised her song for being ‘really, really beautiful’ in response.
The fangirling followed, with Rexha telling Angelina: ‘Thank you so much. Oh my God, you’re real. I can’t believe you’re real. I’m going to cry.’
To mark the moment, the two posed for pics together as well, that Rexha later shared proudly on social media!
