Roberts confirmed that she went to see Michele in the Broadway musical Funny Girl and said Michele's performance made her cry.

"I saw her in Funny Girl and I was crying at the end. She looked at me, and I said to my friend, 'I think she saw me.' My friend's like, 'Emma, she didn't see you. Shut up.' And then I go backstage and she's like, 'I saw you!' I'm like, 'I knew we connected!'" Roberts said.

"I'm just so happy for her," she added. "I mean, she's so down-to-earth and so talented, and she just deserves everything she's getting with the Funny Girl praise."
