Ed O'Neill says he didn't recognize Britney Spears

By | On June 14, 2016



We're pretty sure that any man -- famous or not -- would be pretty thrilled if Britney Spears wanted to take a picture with them.

But Ed O'Neill looks amazingly unenthusiastic in this snap with the pop princess. It's because, amazingly, the Modern Family star had no idea it was her!

Spears approached him for a photo last year at the Los Angeles International Airport, O'Neill recalls on Monday's Ellen DeGeneres Show: "She came up and said, 'Oh Mr. O'Neill I love Modern Family. You're my favorite on the show." So he graciously posed for a snap, but thinking it was just some random fan and not a superstar, the bored expression on his face says it all.

"I didn't know it was her," O'Neill said. "I mean, look at the look on my face. Do I look like I'm sitting with Britney Spears?"

But Brit-Brit didn't seem to mind. She tweeted the photo out to her millions of followers and wrote that he was "such a sweetheart."

It was O'Neill's manager who later informed the actor that he posed with Spears. "So I did call her manager. I got the manager's number," he said. "You know my daughter Sofia she said, 'you are a moron.' So I had to tell my little story. I'm sorry. So I apologized."

We're glad he shared his little story. And so is DeGeneres, who noted, "No one else taking a picture with Britney Spears would have that look on their face. It's fantastic."
