The 'Glee' star meets her redheaded crush decades after she first fell for him

Jane Lynch managed to control herself Monday night during an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, despite the appearance of her first (and perhaps only) male crush: Ron Howard.

Glee actress Lynch hasn't been shy about revealing that she once swooned over the Happy Days star.

"Like every closeted lesbian of the 1970s, I had a crush on Ron Howard," Lynch said to the talk show host. "All gay girls have a crush on a very safe kind of non-sexually threatening person."

It was no passing fancy, either. Lynch admitted to calling into a radio show to speak to Howard at one point and also to having a strange little art collection based around the ginger dreamboat.

"When he was a young man, he was very pure. I adored him," she said. "Not only did I take pictures out of magazines, but I drew pictures of him."

A few minutes later, Lynch had the chance to finally meet her beloved face to face--and he didn't disappoint.

Howard strode out onto stage carrying a bouquet for Lynch and immediately said to her, "I hope our wives will understand, I needed to make a romantic gesture."
