R&B singer Usher was completely starstruck when he met Robert De Niro for the first time - he rushed over to the Hollywood actor and declared his love for him.
The Yeah! hitmaker was enjoying a night out partying with his pal Leonardo DiCaprio recently when he spotted the Goodfellas star in the same venue.
And Usher was so taken aback by seeing De Niro, he spent the evening lavishing praise on the actor.
He tells Britain's Marie Claire magazine, "I was starstruck the other night when I met Robert De Niro for the first time. (I told him) that I love him and think he's incredible. Me and Leonardo DiCaprio were at a club and I went over to him and introduced myself.
"I love sitting with people who are smart and have a vast understanding of life because I wanna know more. Who he is as a businessman and what he's done with his real estate, his taste, his lifestyle."
