 'OITNB' Star Laverne Cox Announces Collaboration With Beyoncé On New Project — Watch
"Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox has revealed she is working on a mystery project with Beyoncé. 

Laverne's fans know the actress is a huge Queen Bey fan and she appears thrilled to be working with the singer.

Cox made the announcement during her interview with "Access Hollywood." 

The actress was asked how the project even began and she revealed she was uncertain. Laverne explained, "I have no idea, to be perfectly honest. I’m like, does she pick out her biggest fans ever and let them work with her? It’s pretty amazing."

Cox sadly couldn't share details of the mystery project, but she stated that new information will be released on Sept. 6. 

On Wednesday, she shared a post about her collaboration with Beyonce, using the hashtag, "Trans is Beautiful." Is that a little hint?

Yes it's true. I am collaborating with @beyonce on a new project. #QueenBey herself. More details Sept. 6. #Beyonce #TransIsBeautiful

The "Doubt" star has made no secret of the fact she adores Bey. She gushed over meeting the singer at the Grammys, admitting that the incident was "a little bit of a blur." 

Cox told People magazine in February, "Many times I imagined meeting Beyoncé and every time I imagined it I was in tears and I was like ‘Oh my God, I cannot like freak out and cry.’ But it’s amazing when you meet the queen and calm covers you."

She continued, "I walked over and I was strangely calm and she was sitting there and everyone was surrounding her - because she’s Beyoncé and she’s the queen. And then she saw me and her face lit up, and she was like, ‘Help me up!’ - she’s pregnant so she needed some help up. I was like, ‘I’ll help you up,’ and she got up and gave me a big hug.”

Laverne told Beyoncé she loved her, with the "Sorry" singer replying, "I know you do…I love you, too. Bey then complimented Laverne on her performance on "Lip Sync Battle." Cox performed a Destiny's Child number. 

Cox channeled her Sasha Fierce during the October 2016 episode of "Lip Sync Battle" alongside her "Orange Is the New Black" costar Samira Wiley.

Cox revealed Beyoncé even sent her flowers. She recalls, "I was on set for Doubt. We had just finished the morning shoot…so I was in the makeup trailer changing to redo makeup and one of the PAs brought a big bouquet of flowers and was like ‘Someone sent you flowers.’ I was like ‘Oh my God, who sent me flowers? Can you put them in my trailer and bring me the card?’ So I open the card and it’s something about, ‘You slayed Lip Sync Battle – Beyoncé.’ I was screaming—I’m literally screaming in the trailer."

We can't wait to see what project Beyoncé and Laverne have up their sleeves!
