The 50-year-old comedian and actress crossed paths with the 'Crazy in Love' hitmaker at the 'Saturday Night Live' after party at TAO, New York City on Sunday (01.10.17) and when she shared the selfie on social media later, she admitted she was terrified about asking her for a picture.

Captioning the photograph, she wrote: "I take the worst pics ever!! Thank God Beyoncé is just f***ing beautiful!! Thanks for pic Queen B!! I was so nervous!! (sic)"

Leslie also met Beyonce's husband Jay Z as she admitted she was, too, nervous about meeting him.

Alongside a photo of herself with the 'Empire State of Mind' rapper, she wrote: "Jay Z is a lyrical beast!!! Thanks for the pic!! Again soooo nervous!! (sic)"

A source told Us Weekly magazine of their meeting: "Beyonce was just as excited to take a selfie with Leslie as Leslie was to take one with her."

Beyonce - who welcomed twins Rumi and Sir in June - arrived at the event at around 3am, supporting her husband, who had performed two songs during the star-studded opening show of the series.

Sean "Diddy" Combs, Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys were also seen at the party whilst host Ryan Gosling, who was joined by his wife Eva Mendes and his 'La La Land"' co-star Emma Stone, made an appearance.

Colin Jost arrived with his girlfriend Scarlett Johansson but she didn't attend the party.
