The Beast himself, Dan Stevens, also opened up about Beyonce’s appearance, joking, “I am happy to receive her whenever she would like to pay personal tribute. No, I didn't get to meet her sadly, but I did sit directly behind Celine Dion at the Hollywood premiere and I spent the entire movie sort of watching the movie through the back of Celine Dion's head, just going, 'That's Celine Dion watching Beauty and the Beast
, this is the strangest thing.'”
Stage and screen legend Audra McDonald admitted to going wild for the GRAMMY winner, dishing, “I did get to see her. It's amazing when you see Beyonce, I became such a fangirl. I saw her and literally I went, 'Queen!' I literally just went, 'Queen!'”
As for Belle, star Emma Watson was equally thrilled by Beyonce’s cameo at the premiere.
