Celebs really are just like us!

Anne Hathaway appeared on the Tonight Show on Tuesday where she revealed her very relatable first celebrity crush.

The Locked Down star played "Best, Worst or First" with host Jimmy Fallon and had to answer the question last.

"Leonardo DiCaprio, come on," Hathaway, 38, immediately said, later adding that her crush on Eddie Vedder was also "around the same time."

But when Fallon asked which era of DiCaprio she crushed on, Hathaway got the name of his '80s sitcom a little confused.

"He was on that show for a while, Who's the Boss?" Hathaway said at first before Fallon corrected her. "No, Growing Pains! I don't remember, I just remember being like, 'Hiii, who's that?!'"

The actress also talked about how much she dislikes people calling her Anne, even if it is her name!

"Call me Annie, everybody, everybody, call me Annie, please," Hathaway said before explaining why her friends call her Annie.

"When I was 14 years old, I did a commercial, and I had to get my SAG card and they asked me, 'Well, what do you want your name to be?'" she said. "And I was like, 'Well, it should be my name. My name's Anne Hathaway.' So that seemed like the right choice, but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life, people will call me Anne."

"The only person who calls me Anne is my mother and she only does it when she's really mad at me, like really mad," she added. "So every time I step out in public and someone calls my name, I think they're going to yell at me."

Hathaway stars in Locked Down alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor as a pair pulling off a jewelry heist. It premieres on HBO Max on Thursday.
