Who knew that celebs as big as Emma Watson could still get starstruck?
During the Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast, she met many people who were involved in the animated version of the film that came out in 1991. One of whom is Paige O’Hara, the voice behind Watson’s character, Belle. She also met one of her childhood idols, and singer of the Beauty and the Beast theme song, Celine Dion. The look on her face was just priceless!
In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Watson told him that when she saw Ms. Dion she was clutching her publicist and told them, “This is almost too much for me.” She and her mother used to listen to Celine Dion non-stop in car rides. Needless to say they were huge fans of the Canadian singer. When Watson told her mother, she was as ecstatic as her. And let’s face it, we’d all lose it too if we ever met Celine Dion.

What I’m really excited about though is that Beauty and the Beast is finally coming to Philippine theaters in a few days. Starting March 16, 90’s kids all over the country can relive their childhoods with this live action version of one of their fave Disney movies.
