O’Hara even said that she used to sell her paintings on the streets of New York before she made it on Broadway, starting her love of painting fairly early in her life. Although we know she enjoys painting the Disney princesses, she took on the challenge of painting the infamous Gaston!

Gaston and O’Hara hung out together in the France Pavilion during their encounter- you can watch the whole experience here! O’Hara picks on Gaston the whole time, telling him that, “he’s multi-layered!”

Gaston quickly replies with a, “that must be a muscle thing!”
