Will Young, who rose to fame after winning Pop Idol in 2002, is reportedly a huge fan of Julia Roberts, but things seemingly did not go as per his plans when they first met.

Speaking on The One Show, Will took a trip down memory and shared a story from 2007’s LA BAFTAs.

Spilling the beans on their encounter, Will recalled, “I was singing at the LA BAFTAs. She was in the dressing room.”

“And I get a bit tongue-tied and I just was looking at her and thinking, ‘Oh god, that’s Julia Roberts,’ and all I had in my head was the ‘Pretty Woman’ theme tune,” he also revealed.

Will continued, “Then she said, ‘You’re the guy from ‘American Idol’, and I said, ‘No, ‘Pop Idol’.’ Then I said, ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if it was called Pup Idol and everyone brought their puppies?’”

He also mentioned, “She just looked at me. I know. It’s really odd. Her assistant just moved her away.”

“I’m actually sweating telling this story. I started sweating and the make-up artist was like, ‘God, you’re sweating quite a lot.’ And I said, ‘Yeah I know, I’m fine. It’s just so hot,’ Will disclosed about his “awful” dialogue with the Pretty Woman hitmaker.

Wrapping up the anecdote, the singing sensation said, “I think people need to hear these stories.”
