Getting Star Struck By Alan Arkin, From Whoopi Goldberg (VIDEO)

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.
