Earlier this year, Billie Eilish was asked by an Instagram fan who was her childhood celebrity crush. She would later post a photo of Sarah Michelle Gellar because she was a fan of her role in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
It seems that when Gellar found out that Eilish was hit by Cupid’s crossbow while watching her on the beloved series, Gellar made a point of letting the Grammy winner know that she also had a great deal of love for her.
“I’m dead. That’s all.” Gellar wrote in a post on Instagram. “I’m not a child anymore, but I totally have a crush on @billieeilish Ok… now that’s really all.”
Eilish replied “Um oh my god,” according to Billboard.
Gellar was recently a guest on CBS’ The Talk and was asked about the exchange with Eilish and how her kids reacted.
“It was amazing, I saw it, and I thought finally they’re going to think I’m cool. Honestly, it was the only thing because nothing I do is cool. I have a teenager; I mean nothing.
“So, finally, I was like, yes, so I guess some of her friends had shown her on the bus because she doesn’t have social media. So, she came home beaming it gave me points for almost a week.”
