Jennifer Aniston, JJ Watt


Dreams do come true!

Houston Texans player J.J. Watt is known for his personal mantra "Dream big, work hard," and yesterday one of Watt's dreams came true: He met his celebrity crush, Jennifer Aniston!

Earlier this year the 26-year old didn't hesitate singing Aniston's praises when E! News asked him which star he was crushing on. At the time, the two still hadn't met, but on Monday Watt uploaded a photo of them side by side, saying, "I'm not even going to try to pretend like I acted cool when this happened. #LifeMade."

While Watt is a huge NFL star, he's really just a Midwestern boy who worked hard to be where he is now. He told E! News sometimes he just has to step back and soak in all that's happening. "It goes to show you anybody can do it….I came from a small town in Wisconsin, just like a lot of people, so there's nothing crazy or special, it's just hard work that gets you to where you want to be."

Mr. Do-It-All... So many talents, such a great work ethic. Great seeing you last night @justintimberlake

Watt joked, "All the cool things I get to see, whether it's getting to hang out with a guy like Justin Timberlake, or going out there and playing in front of 80,000 people, or walking into a restaurant and seeing a little kid wearing your jersey. There are so many cool things that you get to do, and so many things I've been fortunate enough to do."

Watt says when eventually has kids, "I don't think my kids will believe me, so I'm hoping people have been taking pictures this whole time, so that someday they'll believe me. Someday, they'll be like, 'Dad there's no way you did that!'"

Well thank goodness for Instagram to preserve all of J.J's monumental moments.

Since Watt guest starred earlier this year on New Girl, maybe he'll get make a cameo in one of Aniston's new movies?
