Selena Gomez has finally met the man of her dreams.
And he's not Justin Bieber...
Gomez posted a video on YouTube last night that showed her meeting longtime celebrity crush Shia LaBeouf backstage at a television studio. The 18-year-old starlet came face-to-face with the "Transformers" bad boy, 25, for the first time after her handlers sneakily told her she was simply going to meet some fans in a dressing room.
"Oh my gosh," Gomez said when she saw LaBeouf, before quickly turning around and rushing out of the room.
"Hey, nice to meet you," LaBeouf said after running after her. "Hey, how are you? How you doin'? Thanks for being so sweet to me. You're really sweet to me."
A flustered Gomez told the actor, "I admire you." They took a couple of photos together before Gomez shuffled away into another room. "He's so cute," she said to her mom. "He's so handsome."
"I am so embarrassed," she added. "I walked right out."
LaBeouf's publicist, Melissa Kates, insists she had nothing to be red-faced about. "That's actually nice and refreshing to see somebody that genuine," Kates said. "Trust me, he likes it."
Can't help but wonder if the Biebster is also going to like it once he sees the video, especially after Gomez tweeted a link to it with the message, "Best...Day...Ever."
Gomez's crush on LaBeouf goes way back. In October 2008, a then-single Gomez shouted once shouted to reporters on a red carpet, "Let Shia know I'm available!"
