Adams helped Houston shop for clothes

The Fighter star worked at the Gap to make ends meet while pursuing her acting career and Adams admits she had one particularly interesting run-in with notoriously private superstar Houston, who grew agitated with the young beauty’s attentive service.

She explains, “I worked at the Gap. I was very good at the Gap. I was a full-timer (full-time employee). Very proud… And because of that pride, I was the greeter; I would say hello to everybody… And then we had this thing called the Gap Act… First you greet, which is what I did. Like, ‘Hey welcome to the Gap’. Then you approach, like, ‘Hey can I help you with anything?’ And then it’s product information, like, ‘Make sure to check out our new colours.’

“Whitney Houston came in. I got bored there sometimes and so I challenged myself that I was going to Gap Act her and act like I didn’t know who she was. She requested that I not help her anymore. Smartly.

“I think she went and hid in the dressing room because I was trying to tell her all about our new colours.”
