"Anything [she] does I absolutely love," Rexha marveled. "She's just always inspired me. She's kinda always been that bad ass chick [and] I feel like this role is perfect for her."
When asked if she'd gotten a chance to meet Jolie in person, Rexha admitted that she hadn't, but hoped to soon, seeing as how they were both on the same red carpet outside the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
"I just saw her and I'm so starstruck," Rexha said. "She's like, you know, she is iconic... She's amazing! I love her."
It wasn't long after chatting with ET that the long-awaited introduction happened, right in front of ET's cameras, and their first meeting was even more sweet and adorable than Rexha could have imagined.
