Elisabeth Moss Totally Fangirled When She Met Sandra Bullock: ‘I Just Didn't Know What to Say’

Elizabeth Moss is opening up about her most embarrassing fangirl moment, and we're all ears.

While appearing on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, the 39-year-old actress opened up about her first encounter with Sandra Bullock, with whom she worked with on the miniseries Lucky Chances back in 1990. At the time, Moss was just seven years old, and apparently, she was so starstruck that she "didn't know what to say."

The topic came up after Andy Cohen asked if she'd ever fangirled over a celebrity. Without hesitation, she mentioned the Bird Box star and how she "deeply regretted the first impression."

"She's so cool and so funny," Moss said. "We stood backstage next to each other at God knows which thing, and I just stood there and didn't say anything to her. Like, awkwardly. I froze."

In Lucky Chances, which was inspired by two of Jackie Collins's novels, Bullock played a young woman named Maria Santangelo, while Moss played the 6-year-old version of her daughter, Lucky. The two haven't appeared in any projects since, but we imagine that their meeting would go quite differently if they were to collaborate again. *Crosses fingers.*

In an interview with Vogue, Moss revealed that working on this particular series helped her fall in love with acting. She said, “I had to find [Bullock's character] dead in the pool, and I was hooked. I was like, ‘I love this!’ I took it as seriously at that age as I do now.”

Since then, the actress has taken on a number of roles in films and shows, including The West Wing, Mad Men and her most famous project yet, The Handmaid's Tale. Plus, she has multiple titles in the works, from Next Goal Wins to She Will Rise.

We're sure Bullock would be proud.
