Los Angeles | Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra and Hollywood actress Sarah Michelle Gellar seem to have formed a mutual admiration club. In an interview the 33-year-old Quantico actress said that during her school days in the USA she used to look up to Gellar as Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
When I was in high school in America, I didn’t see anyone, who looked like me hardly ever. I just thought that was normal because you don’t know any better. So I used to idolise so many other people, like Sarah Michelle Gellar on ‘Buffy.’
But when I went back to India at age 17 and started travelling for work, that was when I slowly realised that we don’t all look like one person, Priyanka said. Gellar, 39, who was touched by the praise, took to Twitter to thank the Baywatch actress.
@priyankachopra I love watching you (and all that you represent) so you can imagine how honoured I was at the mention, she wrote. Priyanka replied back to the Cruel Intentions star thanking her for helping her overcome tough times.
Thank you for the kind words @SarahMGellar Buffy got me through some rough years in high school. Much love. @latimes, she tweeted.
