Kelly Clarkson never fails to give us reasons why she’s so relatable, and now she’s providing yet another: she’s a Game of Thrones fan.
The singer — who is gearing up to host the Billboard Music Awards for her second year in a row on Wednesday — tells PEOPLE that a recent run-in with actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who has played Jaime Lannister on the fantasy series since 2011, had her a bit starstruck.
“I was like, ‘What!'” Clarkson says of meeting Coster-Waldau. “I was very excited. He’s so handsome!”
Clarkson famously freaked out when she met Meryl Streep on the Golden Globes red carpet back in January 2018, but she says that kind of reaction is generally an exception.
“I know everyone references the Meryl moment, but she’s the only one I’m crazy for,” she explains. “I don’t generally freak out — I just get excited.”
