Lea Michele ''really freaked out'' when she found out she would be working with Ashton Kutcher in 'New Year's Eve' because he is ''the hottest guy''.
The 'Glee' beauty stars alongside the heartthrob actor - who recently split from his wife of six years Demi Moore - and she has confessed she "freaked out" when she found out she would be working with him on the film because he is totally out of her "league".
Lea - who separated from Broadway actor Theo Stockman in September after a 17-month relationship - told New York Magazine: "I didn't mention Ashton's name just because, I gotta say, I kinda felt like he was a little out of my league.
"You know, this guy's like, the hottest guy, and then when they called and said that Ashton was doing it, I was really freaked out. I thought I should have picked someone else and said, 'You have to use this person!' so I wouldn't have been nervous.
"But I'm so glad, because he challenged me, and it was a really great pairing, I think."
Ashton also enjoyed filming scenes with Lea where the pair are stuck in an elevator and found her to be great company.
He added: "I think what makes her great for this particular role is she has this passionate aspiration and I think that she's able to express that really cleanly."
