Jenny Slate Reacts to Ariana Grande Being a ‘Marcel the Shell’ Fan (Exclusive)

The actress voices the sweet shell in the A24 film.

Jenny Slate can't believe that Ariana Grande is a fan of Marcel the Shell -- but who isn't?

"Brooke Shields did tell me that when I did her podcast and I swear that I kind of had a hard time understanding what was happening. I'm a huge Ariana Grande fan," Slate told ET's Denny Directo on Sunday during the SAG Awards.

"It's like her and Mariah [Carey] the best singers ever. Well .. also Rihanna, Also Beyoncé, so many queens."

On Sunday, Slate -- who wore an off-shoulder gown by Zuhair Murad --  celebrated Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, and Everything Everywhere All at Once. Not only is the comedian presenting at the ceremony on Sunday, she along with the cast is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

"It's is an incredible sort of convergence," Slate said of the celebration of both movies this awards season  "The films were sort of made at the same time. I never expected that this timing would happen, it's exceptional."

"I think he would say he loves a good party," the actress said about the star's appearance. 

When it comes to the idea of a sequel, Slate isn't shutting the idea down.

"If the stars align," she told ET.
