Modern Family star Ed O'Neill stopped by Ellen earlier this week to talk about playing a seven-tentacled octopus in the new Pixar film Finding Dory when the talk-show host brought up an embarrassing encounter he had with one Britney Spears. Apparently, Spears requested a photo with the Modern Family star, and though he obliged, he totally just thought she was some random fan and not one of the most famous women in music. To hear him talk about it, skip to the 3:05 mark.
Ed, that's Britney, bitch. You know, the outrageously famous singer? Who's been a pop culture staple since the late 90s? The girl whose face has been plastered pretty much everywhere for the past decade and a half? Yeah, that Britney Spears.
Ed O'Neill is such a dad.
Still, whether he knew it was her or not, she still made a good impression, since Britt captioned the photo, "Fancy running into this guy! Such a sweetheart!!" when she tweeted the pic back in March 2015.
O'Neill's 17-year-old daughter Sophia will probably never stop rolling her eyes at him for this one.
