The Pussycat Dolls star revealed that when she approached him at a grand party, she was left dazed – but not before saying something very strange to her.
Ashley Roberts has admitted that he “really can’t talk” with a number of celebrities – and Justin Timberlake has frozen him TWICE.
The Pussycat Dolls star opens on this week’s Heart Showbiz Hub Podcast about her most embarrassing showbiz moments – and both involve former * N Sync stars.
Before he started dating his present wife Jessica Biel, Ashley often saw JT on the showbiz circuit, and he developed a big crush on her. Unfortunately he had a little problem every time he tried to talk to him.
He said: “I was at this afterparty Grammy back on the day we were single. I went to the bar for a drink, then I turned and he stood there, trying to say hello to me.
“I said, ‘Umm – I take two shots in my face now.’ He said ‘OK … that’s good to know …?!’
“I said ‘OK, bye!’ And just turn around and walk away and I’m like, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?! “
Unfortunately for Ashley, a few moments later it happened again.
He added: “We were in New York when he came and tried to talk to me. I really couldn’t form a sentence! He just grabbed my hand and said, ‘Alright then! I’ll just leave …’
“I’m closed! There are only a few people who go back to being five-year-old girls – I forgot how to talk!”
Glad to know that being a member of one of the biggest women’s groups of all time doesn’t mean you can still have moments of horror …
