Glee star Chord Overstreet has poured out his heart on national Tv in America in the hope of snagging a date with his celebrity crush Sandra Bullock.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday (02Dec13), the singer/actor revealed he was so awestruck when he came face to face with the Speed actress on the red carpet at a Hollywood event he froze and couldn't approach her.

He said, "I saw her from a distance at one of these red carpet things and I was a little bit, like, too scared to talk to her. She was that beautiful."

And the fact that, at 24, he's exactly half the Oscar winner's age isn't about to stop him from dreaming of a date with the actress.

When DeGeneres invited Overstreet to ask Bullock out on camera, he jumped at the opportunity, and said, "Sandra, would you go out with me? Oh, it would be amazing if you could just respond right now so I'm not left waiting."
