When People asked iCarly star, Miranga Cosgrove, about her dream New Year’s smooch, she replied, “If I could pick anyone, it would be Shia LabBeouf.”  Not only have the pair met, but Cosgrove also admits, “He’s really cute.”  Despite her wish, the young actress was kiss-less at midnight.  When it comes to turning that dream into a reality, she admits that not having a driver’s license is limiting the possibilities.  “I got my permit,” Cosgrove says,” but I’m still not officially driving and I don’t have a car.”  If a car is all that it takes, perhaps 2012 will prove lucky for the starlet.
