Sealed With a Kiss: Olympic Gymnast Simone Biles Meets Her Celebrity Crush Zac Efron
Simone Biles may have kept her cool on the Olympic stage in Rio, but the four-time gold medalist freaked out at the sight of her celebrity crush.
Actor Zac Efron shocked the 19-year-old with a big greeting Tuesday night after she took the mat for the floor routine.
Simone and her U.S. women's gymnastics teammates went absolutely gaga over the actor.
“I'm shaking, I’m so scared,” Biles said.
“Their story just blew my mind,'' Efron told Hoda Kotb. “When I found out Simone and this team were fans, I was like, 'What kind of guy am I if I don't show up?'''
Biles posted photos from the surprise meet and greet.

Efron took to Twitter to share his admiration of Biles.
"They won gold medals, they were crushing it the entire Olympics, and I was like hiding in a closet waiting to come in, so I didn't know what to think,'' Efron told the Today show about meeting the team. "I kind of was getting nervous myself, but it ended up being so sweet."
"He's even more gorgeous in person!" Biles said to Kotb after meeting the Dirty Grandpa star.
