The Olympic ice dance champs sat down to chat about mingling at Oscar parties and taking on Dancing With The Stars, just weeks after winning gold.
Charlie shared, “There were so many famous people as you know, I mean, just all the most famous people you can imagine, so we‚Äôre trying to play it cool, you know. It‚Äôs like we don‚Äôt want to take any pictures, but then I saw Bill Murray and I was like ya I‚Äôve got to take a picture with Bill Murray. So you know, we‚Äôre holding our medals and you know trying to like make ourselves look important and he‚Äôs like, oh ‘I feel like I should be holding something’, so he grabs Meryl‚Äôs clutch and is like…And it‚Äôs just like of course Bill Murray, you know. He‚Äôs genius and it was awesome to be there.
Meryl added about her own brush with celebrities at the bash: “I was washing my hands in the bathroom and I looked up and Selena Gomez was standing on my right and Zooey Deschanel was standing on my left and they‚Äôre just having a conversation and I was like hmm ya that‚Äôs cool.”
“I think we‚Äôre both scared of each other if you will, but in a very, you know, encouraging way,” Charlie added about their new DWTS experience and competing against one another. “I don‚Äôt know how else to put that. I mean, we know each other so well. We know how hard the other person works. We know that, you know, I know that she‚Äôs a great dancer and she has a great partner in Max and I‚Äôm very fortunate to have Sharna and we‚Äôre gonna have a lot of fun cause it‚Äôs a different experience than the Olympics.”
