When Britney Spears sang about cracking a whip in her 2008 single Circus, she might have been thinking of Batman Returns star Michelle Pfeiffer doing just that as Catwoman.

In a passionate Instagram post on Tuesday evening, the pop superstar praised Pfeiffer's take on the DC Comics villainess in Tim Burton's 1992 superhero epic as "charming" and "sexy," calling her an "alluring woman" who captured her attention in "probably the hottest scene I've ever seen in my life."

"Of course, [Michelle Pfeiffer] whom I've never met is the character… she is sick in this movie in the most [un]conventional way possible !!!" Spears wrote, which is simply impossible, something Michelle proved herself!

Amid a flurry of supportive comments from celebrities like Paris Hilton and RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 6 winner Kylie Sonique Love, the Oscar nominee herself chimed in with mutual admiration for Spears, confirming that — contrary to what Spears thought — she is very much aware of the singer.

"Wow Britney! Thank you for the beautiful compliment," Pfeiffer replied. "I'm a huge fan."
