Ed O’Neill sits down for an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (June 13).
The 70-year-old Modern Family actor, who voices a character in the new movie Finding Dory, opened up about the time he met Britney Spears at the airport and didn’t recognize her.
“Well I was at LAX. I was flying alone to Hawaii. I was waiting for my flight to board… I saw a woman approaching me so I just flopped [my hat] on, I was leaving. She came up and said, ‘oh Mr. O’Neill I love Modern Family. You’re my favorite on the show,’” Ed recalled.
Ed said that Britney “couldn’t have been nicer” and that he didn’t know it was her until his manager called him the next day and said that she posted the photo on social media.
