Los Angeles, March 3 (IANS) Actress Gemma Arterton says she had a crush on actor Leonardo DiCaprio since she was a teenager.

The 27-year-old says she was a fan of him since the release of "Titanic", and she is now so embarrassed to meet him as she probably wouldn't be able to control herself.

"I was never a groupie but I did have my crush - Leonardo DiCaprio. I was 12 or 13 and I had a poster of him on my wall. 'Titanic' was out then and it was huge. It seems so funny to me now," contactmusic.com quoted Arterton as saying.

Arterton added that she was worried about the reaction of the "Django Unchained" star after he will get to know about her feelings.

"He probably doesn't know who I am. It would be awful if he found out and I met him! I'd probably drool," she said.
