Selena Gomez isn't a kid anymore. Yet her first meeting with Brad Pitt almost turned into a game of hide and seek.
The singer and actress, 20, met the heartthrob actor, 49, for the first time at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards. And she was so starstruck that she barely held it together.
"I was in my dressing room, and I had just finished performing," Gomez says in an interview airing Tuesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "And they knocked on my door, and they said Brad Pitt would like to come in. And I was like, well, he can come in!"
