Shelly Martinez recently spoke about filming her Funny or Die sketch with Sean Astin, who she had a childhood crush on.

“Sean is one of the first crushes I ever had when he was in The Goonies,” she said. “When I found out he was the celebrity involved, I knew I had to do the role. I’ve met a lot of famous people but I was really nervous [on first meeting Sean]. Ever since I was a little girl Shelly I was in love with this guy! When I saw him I asked ‘Can I take a picture with you?’ He said ‘Sure!’ ‘Wait, can I give you a hug?’ And he says ‘Yeah!’ So I gave him a hug and hugged him so tight and just did not want to let go! I nerded out over him. The role he played in The Goonies [Mikey] has been with me throughout my career, and I found myself quoting him. So to meet him really was something. When I was in his arms during our scene, I got to be in his arms! I was thinking ‘Oh my gosh! This is my job today! It was really fun not only as a girl, but as a professional. My job for the day was to be in Sean’s arms, and I’m okay with that!”
