BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER star SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR shocked fiance FREDDIE PRINZE JR. on live television - phoning in to ask her beau a question.
Freddie was appearing on America's MTV's TRL Live show, where fans get the chance to call in and ask their favourite stars some intimate questions. But the chance to surprise her boyfriend was too much for Sarah, who tuned into the show during a lunch break from filming her hit television series.
She says, "It worked out perfectly, I was sitting in my trailer having lunch, and I thought I'd call in, I had a question to ask. They didn't believe it was me at first, I was going,'It really is Sarah Michelle Gellar, grill me, ask me anything you want, I promise it's me. '" But Gellar wasn't imagining her call would have such a profound effect on her lover.
The actor recognised his fiancee's voice immediately and
admitted, "I think I'm going to cry." (SVD/WNV/RP)
