Scream Queens co-stars Ariana Grande and Emma Roberts have revealed they held torches for some unlikely candidates in their youths.

The 22-year-old singer is one of the hottest young stars in the industry and has dated celebrities like Big Sean in the past.

But she has revealed her incredibly unlikely first ever obsession was on The Mask actor Jim.

“Jim Carrey was like my first crush,” Ariana revealed in a joint interview with Scream Queens co-star Emma Roberts for Entertainment Tonight.

The 53-year-old actor isn’t the only star that Ariana developed feelings for at a young age.

She and Emma both found out that they had the same crush as youngsters during the chat.

“The earliest celebrity crush I had was probably Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Orlando Bloom – there was a long Orlando Bloom session,” Emma said.

“I had an Orlando Bloom pillowcase – but as [his Lord of the Rings character] Legolas not as Orlando Bloom,” Ariana added.

The pair also opened up about their musical likes and dislikes in the interview.

They shared about what tracks they listen to to cheer themselves up on a bad day.

“Video by India Arie is great,” Ariana said. “Perfect Day by Hoku is great and Wannabe, Spice Girls.”

Emma added: “I have a playlist on my phone that me and my girlfriends all add to and it’s all like girl power pop. I think there’s some of your [Ariana] songs on it, I have to be honest!”

Emma and Ariana are just two of the names in the star-studded Scream Queens. The show, created by Glee’s Ryan Murphy, also stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Abigail Breslin.

It is due to premiere on Fox on September 22.
