What’s a good way to get Emma Roberts to scream? Just tell her that ’90s hearthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas is in the building.

The Scream Queens gushed about her childhood crush on Thomas, who starred in Home Improvement from 1991-1998, during a visit to Live with Kelly & Michael Thursday.

“I’m literally getting flushed thinking about it. Remember when you are younger and you have crushes where you are sobbing just looking at a poster of them? That’s how intense is,” Roberts, 24, told Kelly Ripa.

She went on to talk about have pictures of Thomas, now 34, in her room.

“I used to collage my whole room for hours with pictures of Jonathan Taylor Thomas and a couple of other people,” Roberts said. “It was a little creepy, almost. I think it was a little stalkerish.”

Ripa played a little trick on Roberts, telling her that JTT was backstage. Roberts let out a little scream, before quickly realizing it was a joke.

“I think I would leave!” Roberts said.

Added Ripa: “I just convinced myself that was about to happen.”
