Something about watching celebrities fangirl over other celebrities is so endearing, and one of the latest A-listers to do that is Kristen Bell. On Friday, the 39-year-old actress shared a series of videos of herself freaking out over meeting Lin-Manuel Miranda. The two attended San Diego's Comic-Con and were at a gathering when Kristen first spotted Lin-Manuel from afar. While the Veronica Mars star was indoors, she watched the Mary Poppins Returns actor chat with some friends outside.
"Look," Kristen said pointing to Lin-Manuel before letting out a silent scream. The actor took notice of his admirer and tried to speak to her from a distance. "He's talking to me, and I can't hear him!" Kristen said, before heading outside for a proper introduction. They finally united with a sweet hug and bright smiles. "Hi, hi," Kristen said when Lin-Manuel greeted her.
I don’t know if you’ve ever seen two total strangers scream “I Love You!!” at each other across a crowded room but this is the picture we took right after we did that.

After the interaction, Lin-Manuel took to Twitter to talk about their meeting. "I don't know if you've ever seen two total strangers scream 'I Love You!!' at each other across a crowded room but this is the picture we took right after we did that," he wrote, adding a cute snap of them hanging out. Shortly after, Kristen responded, tweeting, "Was I screaming? I thought my SOUL was SINGING!" To make matters more exciting, one of the photos they took is now set as their Twitter profile picture. So it's safe to say that this is the start of a beautiful friendship!
