Lea Michele gleeful over Streisand gift

Lea Michele was gifted with her own collectable doll by Barbra Streisand after she learned the young Glee star is her biggest fan.

Michele, who grew up admiring the veteran hitmaker, spotted a rare Barbra Streisand doll on a TV show and grew obsessed with tracking down the item.

And when The Way We Were singer heard of the young star's quest via Twitter.com, she shipped her the collectable as a gift.

Michelle recalls, "I was watching Hoarders and this man had a crazy collection of dolls and among all these dolls I saw a Barbra Streisand doll. So I tweeted, I was like, 'I gotta get that doll. Where is this man and how can I get this doll?' And she tweeted me back, 'Forget the guy, I'll send you the doll.' I died.

"Everything has been a dream ever since. She sent it to me, I have it at home, it's amazing. I'm a huge Barbra fan so it meant the world to me."
