Oscar winning actress Julia Roberts is a Hollywood A-lister of the highest order, but she was still reduced to a giggling wreck when she met Cristiano Ronaldo.


The American star was in Madrid at the weekend to watch Real Madrid lose to Barcelona in a thrilling El Clasico match.


And this video shows how she turned into a total fan girl when she met Ronaldo, his team-mates and was given a tour of the stadium and dressing rooms.


The Madrid players all happily posed for photos with Roberts, who also introduced her cinematographer husband Daniel Moder to the soccer stars.


In one of the videos, shared by Real Madrid Twitter account, the actress is seen very nervous waiting to meet the footballers and accompanied by her husband shortly after the end of the match.


The video shows the actress, wearing black glasses and a big smile, waiting for the Madrid men. She even received a Real Madrid shirt and took pictures and videos of her time with the players and their personalised lockers.


She took a selfie with Morata and then she is clearly  very nervous as she can be heard saying "my heart is beating a lot".


The Brazilian footballer is seen signing some footballs for her kids and then holding the hands of the actress and her husband.


Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was also snared by the Pretty Woman star as she also met  Sergio Ramos and Marcelo.


Roberts might appear to be a star-struck Madrid fan, but she later posted a picture of herself with the winning man of the match  - Barcelona's Lionel Messi.


The Argentine, who scored in his side's 3-2 win, also shared the snap online with the message "in addition to the big victory, yesterday I met one of my favourite actress, Julia Roberts!"
