Will Young opens up on ‘really odd’ dressing room encounter with Julia Roberts

Will Young has opened up about his “really odd” dressing room encounter with Julia Roberts.

The singer, who is back with a new album and heading out on tour, recalled the moment he met the Hollywood actress when he performed at the LA BAFTAs.

Appearing on the BBC’s One Show on Wednesday (24 April), the 45-year-old said: “She was in the dressing room and I get a bit tongue-tied and I just was looking at her and thinking ‘Oh god, that's Julia Roberts’.

“Then she said ‘You’re the guy from American Idol’ and I said ‘No Pop Idol’. Then I said ‘Wouldn't it be funny if it was called Pup Idol and everyone brought their puppies’.

“She just looked at me. I know. It's really odd.”
