Brie Larson burst into tears when she met Jennifer Lopez for the first time at the 2024 Golden Globes.

During a red carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier on Jan. 7, Larson noticed Lopez walking toward her at the star-studded event and she changed her mind. Gotta be emotional.

"Oh my God! I can't deal with JLo," Larson told host Frasier, who was just as excited as the actor, joking: "We all are. "

"No, I can't. I'm going to cry," Larson continued, before telling Lopez "you mean a lot to me" as they exchanged hugs.

"This is a dream of mine"

Larson cited Selena 1997 as an inspiration early in her career, telling Lopez, "It made me want to be an actress, and you've always meant a lot to me."

"This is a dream of mine," she continued. "Thank you so much. Your work ethic is so important."

Lopez, visibly emotional, then responded, "Oh my God, don't make me cry," and the two wiped away tears and hugged again.
