I was dying – I just had to go to the restroom. And finally, it’s over and I’m just running out there and it’s packed with people. And all the urinals are taken, but then I spot – there’s stall there, the door was open, and “I’m gonna go, I’m not gonna let anyone get there”, because I was dying. And then this guy is in there, and then I just go for it – I didn’t know he was in there – the door was open. And so I just go for it, he was standing, I’m pretty sure there was spillage, and I said sorry, and he said sorry, and I go “Oh my God, that’s George Clooney.”
