In the most adorable confession, 23-year-old Ansel explains that he froze when he met Ryan for the first time.
“I met him backstage.” he told MTV News. “I got a photo with him, and I posted it on my Instagram. Very calm. Very casual. I was freaking out the whole time.”
The two bumped into each other at CinemaCon, where he was promoting his movie Baby Driver. Ansel was so trying to keep his cool, he didn’t even want to ask Ryan for a picture. Luckily, fate intervened.
“I was standing there with him… and obviously wasn’t going to ask him for a picture and the photographer was like ‘Can you four get together please for a photo?,’” Ansel dishes.
