The interviewer questioned, "Wait, how did you meet Harry Styles?"

"I don't think I should divulge that," Roberts began. "I'm just kidding. It was backstage at The Ellen Show and he was the guest going on after me. He was as sweet and charming as a young man could be. I was quite taken with his fine manners and he was very charming."

Fans were quick to share their thoughts on Roberts and how the two stars met.

"an icon supporting an icon," one said.

"She is stunning," commented another.

One user added, "this lady just barely aged at all ... and is as beautiful on the inside."

"Do you think he said to her 'I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her'" a Tiktok user joked.
