The only difference is that she then got to meet her but thankfully she remained delightfully un-chill about the whole thing.
While most people would be mortified by this kind of reaction, there's something so relatable about Kelly Clarkson freaking out at the mere sight of Meryl Streep on the red carpet of the Golden Globes that it can only make you love her more.
Clarkson, a presenter at last night's awards, was leaving E!'s red carpet area as Meryl Streep arrived and proceeded to be the most starstruck a celebrity has ever been on camera, almost collapsing before saying "OH MY GOD, THAT'S MERYL!" before then shouting a request to meet her and bellowing "I'M SUCH A FAN."
Streep graciously acquiesced and it's probably the red carpet moment of the year. Well, after all the actresses calling out E! while on E!.
