The Houston Texans player, who stands 6 ft., 5 in. tall and weighs in at an impressive 289 lbs., could barely contain his excitement when he posed for a photo with the actress on Monday.
“I’m not even going to try to pretend like I acted cool when this happened #lifemade,” Watt, 26, wrote of the Instagram snap.
In the photo, the much-feared player smiles brightly, towering over tiny Aniston, who’s wearing a dark tank top and a simple gold necklace.
The pair synched up on Monday in Los Angeles at their shared talent agency. When Watt told his reps he wanted to meet the star, which he called his “lifelong goal,” they quickly tracked her down – in the building.
“It was incredible,” Watt told the Associated Press on Tuesday. “She was very sweet.”

Watt insisted he was “absolutely the farthest from cool you could absolutely be” during the meet-up, and he said that although the 46-year-old wasn’t a Texans fan, she knew that he was from the Southern state.
“I shook her hand instead of hugging her,” he told the AP, then joking, said, “Then I left the room without proposing. It was a complete disaster.”
