Considering all those big names who do guest spots on "Glee," you'd think Dianna Agron would feel at ease around A-listers.
But the actress says she was so starstruck at the Grammys that she relied on "Glee" guest star Gwyneth Paltrow to introduce her to Beyoncé.
"I had kind of an in because Gwyneth was there," Agron told talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel. "[Co-star] Kevin McHale and I were like, 'We can go say hi to her' — and she was right next to Beyoncé. So we kind of weaseled our way into meeting Beyoncé."
Following the ceremony, Agron and her cast mates made their way to the after-party, where they encountered Beyoncé again in the restroom. "It was all the girls from 'Glee,' and then Beyoncé and Gwyneth," she told Kimmel. "It was the most fabulous bathroom party ever!”
So what's it like being in the powder room with the superstar singer? "She was just there. She was so nice. Her makeup was flawless," said Agron, noting that Beyoncé borrowed a mint from one of the girls in the "Glee" crew.
"You know that thing in magazines where they say stars are like us?" asked Agron. "Beyoncé is like us, she eats mints!"
