Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is desperate to meet Rihanna.
The British model-and-actress lives in Los Angeles with her boyfriend Jason Statham.
She went to see the Bajan musician perform earlier this year but was left devastated when she didn’t get a chance to talk to her idol.
“If I met Rihanna I would be [star struck]. I recently went to see her perform in LA and I went backstage and everyone was standing back there having a drink with her team, they said ‘She’s gonna come now, she’s gonna come out any minute now,’” she recalled to BBC Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw. “I was standing there going, ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna meet Rihanna. I’m gonna meet Rihanna!’ And I stood there and 20 minutes went by and the more time went by the more nervous I got. Then after about three hours of waiting I was like, I’ve had enough!”
Now time has passed Rosie admits she is even more anxious to be face-to-face with Rihanna. She hopes one day the pair will become pals.
“I’m really nervous to meet her now, I’m gonna get star-struck and say something I’ll regret or… live with her… She’s so cool. I’ve been campaigning [to be her friend] for a long time,” she laughed.
The 26-year-old beauty has attended several award ceremonies in the past with her actor beau. Even though she is surrounded by A-list stars Rosie insists she doesn’t lose control with excitement.
“I’ve been to a few [award ceremonies] yeah. They can be… intense is probably a good word. They are,” she admitted. “I’m the person who ends up standing in the corner looking at everyone like, ‘Oh my god that’s Michel Douglas over there!’ I don’t get too star-struck.”
