"Anything (she) does I absolutely love," Bebe smiled. "She's just always inspired me. She's kinda always been that badass chick (and) I feel like this role is perfect for her."
Admitting she had spotted the screen star at the event but hadn't approached her yet, Bebe added:
"I just saw her and I'm so starstruck. She's like, you know, she is iconic... She's amazing! I love her."
When Bebe did finally came face-to-face with Angelina, the blonde star admitted that she was struggling to contain her emotions.
"You're so inspiring. Thank you so much," she told Angelina as they hugged. "Thank you so much for letting me be a part of this." The actress replied: "Your song is beautiful. It's really, really beautiful."
Clearly stunned and overwhelmed, the Meant To Be singer fangirled:
"Thank you so much. Oh my God, you're real. I can't believe you're real. I'm going to cry!"
