Fry started in his side's FA Cup triumph and kept Ronaldo relatively quiet before tucking home a spot-kick in the penalty shootout last Friday.
The 24-year-old was tasked with marking the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, but 'didn't dare' look at him during their meeting at Old Trafford.
He also revealed that the 37-year-old looked 'fake' and blushed over the superstar forward's looks.
"I didn't dare look at him to be honest, but when I did I was like 'he looks fake', you know what I mean?" He told BBC Sport Tees.
The Championship defender added: "He's so beautiful in real life. I was like 'wow'."
Ronaldo celebrated his birthday on Saturday, a day after his side was eliminated from the FA Cup.
But he appeared to be in good spirits, posting a motivational message on social media.
"Life is a roller coaster. Hard work, high speed, urgent goals, demanding expectations," he tweeted.
"But in the end, it all comes down to family, love, honesty, friendship, values that make it all worth it. Thanks for all the messages! 37 and counting!"

Despite heading into his late 30s, Ronaldo is still scoring, having bagged 14 goals in all competitions this season.
But he won't be scoring any in the FA Cup, with Boro booking their spot against Tottenham in the next round.
