Olympic gymnast, Danell Leyva, 20, was in attendance for the 2012 Alma Awards co-hosted by Eva Longoria, 37, and pal George Lopez, 51, on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Leyva told Celebuzz how excited he was about attending his first award show and meeting both hosts on the red carpet.

How was Leyva's red carpet run-in with Longoria and Lopez?

Levya gushed, “I was hoping to meet Eva actually and she recognized me and I was like, ‘Oh my God,’ and then George recognized me too.”

Leyva, who was in London for the 2012 Summer Olympics, hasn’t quite gotten a hold of his newfound stardom just yet.

“It’s mindblowing,” Levya explained. It seems as though he isn’t quite as comfortable in front of the cameras as his other American teammates, Michael Phelps, 27, and Ryan Lochte, 28, both of whom have been attending events since the summer games.

Leyva is currently in talks to join Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, according to Huffington Post. A production insider revealed, “the producers are excited about the idea of Danell joining the show.”
