Adam Rippon and Reese Witherspoon fulfilled their fangirl dreams when they met on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday.
Witherspoon was the first to proclaim her admiration for the Olympic figure skater during the Winter Olympics.
“Reason #1 to Watch #WinterOlympics2018 : ADAM RIPPON @Adaripp,” Witherspoon tweeted.

Rippon responded by tweeting, “WHEN YOURE RIGHT, YOURE RIGHT, @RWitherspoon Also!! Quick movie idea for you: You (played by you) tweet me in the middle of the night at the Olympics and I (played by me) die immediately. Thoughts?”

The figure skater and actress finally were able to meet in person courtesy of Colbert.
“This is meant to be, this is the relationship the world’s been waiting for,” Witherspoon says.
Colbert asks for them to give their first impressions of each other and Witherspoon packs on the flattery.
“You smell really good,” Witherspoon says. “You’re more handsome in person than on the ice.”
Rippon skips the question and shares just why this meeting is so important to him.
“I really needed this today because before I got here today my life was in shambles,” Rippon replied. “I was getting dressed because I wanted to look my best for you, and I lost a button.”
