‘Modern Family’s’ Ed O’Neill Did Not Know He Had Taken A Picture With Britney Spears

“Look at the look on my face. Do I look like I’m sitting with Britney Spears?”

While talking with his Finding Dory co-star, Ellen DeGeneres, Ed O’Neill retold the tale behind his chance encounter with one of music’s biggest popstars, Britney Spears. This past March, the Modern Family and Married With Children star was at LAX waiting for his flight to Hawaii when a woman approached him, “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,” going on to add, “she came up and said, ‘Oh, Mr. O’Neill, I love Modern Family. You’re my favorite on the show. Could you please?”

Being the nice guy he is, and since he thought the fan “couldn’t have been nicer,” Ed took a picture with Spears.  It wasn’t until the next day when his manager sent a text to let him know who that random fan actually was, “So the next day my manager texts me, ‘What is this?’ Fifty-three thousand likes! I didn’t know it was her!”

After the picture went viral and O’Neill realized who he had just taken a picture with, his daughter Sophia jokingly said “you are a moron.”
