'I'd hit the high note for him!' Idina Menzel confesses crush on Matt Damon as Kimmel surprises her with message from star... but then abruptly cuts actor off
Idina Menzel has revealed that Matt Damon is her big celebrity crush.
While sitting down with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday the singer recalled her time in Broadway's Wicked when she would get famous visitors backstage.
The Frozen star confessed she desperately wanted Jimmy's nemesis Damon to visit her.
She said: 'I always dreamed of Matt Damon coming back[stage],' she admitted. 'I'm sorry!' she added guiltily to Kimmel.

Idina Menzel revealed that Matt Damon is her big celebrity crush when appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday but told the host she thought he hated her
Hidden in the basement: The TV host surprised the singer with a video link of Damon who was sitting backstage, as he usually does, waiting for Kimmel to let him on his show
After her friends confirmed the Good Will Hunting star would be watching one night Idina said 'I'd hit the high note for Matt Damon, and it turned out he was never there,'
It seems Matt had bought the tickets for his parents instead.
'What a son of a bitch,' Kimmel quipped.
Eventually the actor did turn up to see her perform, but with his wife, the 45-year-old actress revealed with disappointment.
'I always dreamed of Matt Damon coming back[stage],' Idina admitted as she recalled her stint in the Wicked musical where she'd get famous visitors
'He looked like he hated Wicked. He just seemed to hate me. I think he hated me.' the actress said of when the Martian star finally did come to the show
'What a son of a bitch,': It was a great excuse for Kimmel to have a dig at his longtime nemesis
Not cool: Seeing how sad it made Idina was of course a great opportunity for Kimmel to confront the Martian star who he has been feuding with for many years
'He looked like he hated Wicked. He just seemed to hate me. I think he hated me.' she said.
Seeing how sad that made Idina was of course a great opportunity for Kimmel to confront the Martian star - who just happened to be waiting in his basement room backstage (just as he does every night hoping Kimmel will eventually let him on the show in the long-running gag that is their epic feud).
The host surprised the Disney star with a video link of Matt, who apologised to Idina for giving her the wrong impression about hating Wicked.
'I'm kind of hurt by this. I loved Wicked' The 45-year-old actor said
'I loved Idina in it. I was in London last year and we went back again. I was so moved.' Matt insisted
Idina couldn't hide her blushes as she chatted with her crush
'I'm kind of hurt by this. I loved Wicked' The 45-year-old actor said. 'I loved Idina in it. I was in London last year and we went back again. I was so moved.'
The actress blushed as she started chatting to the star but Kimmel's patience was already worn thin as he cut the actor off and said 'Sorry, we don't have time.' - much as he is prone to doing when Matt is involved.
Realising he wasn't going to get on the show once again, the Jason Bourne star reluctantly held a 'next up' sign for the camera to introduce Idina's performance before sullenly flashing another card which read 'And then not Matt Damon'.
As the duo talked Kimmel cut the actor off saying 'Sorry, we don't have time.' as he tends to do when Matt's around
Sulking: The actor realised he still wasn't getting on the show
