Brie Larson may know how to keep her cool while throwing shade during major awards ceremonies. But not so much when meeting this season's star of The Bachelor. Apparently Nick Viall showed up at her house for her weekly viewing party, and the Bachelor mega-fan lost her mind, she revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night.

And I don't mean she coquettishly shrieked and then threw her arms around him. I mean she freaked out and behaved like a complete starstruck weirdo, the way most of us normies behave around famous people. Which just makes her even more likable.

“I was too shy. I got freaked out and starstuck,” Larson told Kimmel. “The day before, I was like hugging Meryl Streep and I was like, ‘This is fine,’ but then Nick showed up at my house.”

Sorry, Meryl.

Apparently Viall was “really cool” and stayed through the end of the show, answering behind-the-scenes questions without revealing any spoilers (I mean, it's obv Vanessa at this point, right?).

Meanwhile, Larson was texting her friend and Trainwreck co-star, Amy Schumer, "creepy pics" all night like a total not-famous person. "[Nick] had such a good sense of humor about the whole thing, and I was just so nervous, I don’t think I said anything to him the whole time," she recalled. "Because I was just like hiding, taking photos and sending them to Amy Schumer being like, ‘Uh, why did this happen? I’m too scared, I’m too shy.'"
