Kristen Bell and Lin-Manuel Miranda meeting at Comic Con is the sweetest thing you’ll see today

By Zach Harper

Kristen Bell and Lin-Manuel Miranda are stars of some of the biggest hits of the decade, yet somehow… they’d hadn’t met each other until Friday (July 19)!

Kristen took to her Instagram to absolutely freak out about finally crossing paths with the Hamilton star, who she ran into at San Diego Comic Con. She was there to promote the new season of Veronica Mars, and approached Lin-Manuel for a hug!

The Frozen star, who is a big fan of Hamilton, shared the sweet moment on Instagram in a post that also included videos of her losing her cool when she spotted Lin-Manuel outside.

Update from #sdcc2019 : Lin-Manuel Miranda is the new sloth.

In the first clip, she points out the window with her jaw open in complete shock at seeing him. The second sees Lin-Manuel reacting in the exact same way when he spots her, and the third features the earthshattering moment two of Hollywood and musical theatre’s most endearing stars hugged each other.

“Lin-Manuel Miranda is the new sloth,” Kristen captioned the post. If you don’t know about Kristen’s sloths obsession or remember her great “sloth meltdown” of 2012, here’s a recap:

Heartwarmingly, Lin-Manuel’s reaction to meeting Kristen was the exact same.

“I don’t know if you’ve ever seen two total strangers scream ‘I Love You!!’ at each other across a crowded room but this is the picture we took right after we did that,” he tweeted in a post that included a selfie of them basking in each other’s glow.

“Was I screaming? I thought my SOUL was SINGING!” Kristen replied when she retweeted it.

But it didn’t end there! Lin-Manuel then changed his profile pic to a portrait Entertainment Weekly took of the two. Of course, Kristen shared it on her own social media accounts.

“I’ll be fine guys,” she wrote. “As soon as I can figure out how to breathe again.”
