When asked about moments when she was the most star struck, Whoopi Goldberg had some fabulous stories to share.

Whoopi was star-struck when she met both Joe Cocker and Alan Arkin. “I couldn't get it together!” she laughed.

“I'm in awe a lot,” she told us. “Alan Arkin really knocked me out.” Whoopi loved “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter” as a child, and that inspired her to become a great performer as an adult.
