Kelly Clarkson was "humiliated" after her overzealous reaction to meeting Meryl Streep was shown on television. The 35-year-old musician was starstruck when she met the iconic actress at the Golden Globe awards over the weekend, and her excitable reaction in which she screamed "Oh my God, that's Meryl!" was shown on the red carpet coverage of the event for all the world to see.

Now, the Stronger singer has admitted her reaction "humiliated" her when she watched it back, but she claims she was just being a "true fan".

Speaking to People magazine, she said: "I was humiliated when I watched it back. I was very excited, and I hope I don't lose that excitement, just being a true fan of people. But she's Meryl Streep y'all! Everybody would've looked like a jacka**. She touched my face y'all!"

Kelly was wrapping up her interview with Ryan Seacrest when she spotted the actress, and immediately went to meet her, asking: "Can I meet you?! I've adored you since I was like eight."

Brad Pitt goes to therapy every week following his bitter split from Angelina Jolie. The 54-year-old actor has also quit drinking alcohol and is doing his best to be a better man and a good father to Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and nine-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, over a year after splitting from their mother.

A source told Us Weekly Magazine: "He goes to therapy every week and is mostly interested in learning and bettering himself as a man and father."

The World War Z star prefers to keep things "private and safe" when he has visitation time with his children, but he would love to spend more time with them.

The insider said: "Brad doesn't go out much with the kids or leave the house. But Brad would definitely like to spend more time with them than he does.

"He prefers to keep things very private and safe. It's his sanctuary and just being there is where he finds peace.

"He has projects around the house and is always making things or changing things around."

As well as spending time with his children, Brad is reportedly reconnecting with old friends including Fight Club director David Fincher and make-up artist Jean Black, as well as visiting galleries and concerts.
