Pop singer Britney Spears is arguably one of the most recognizable people in the world. However, Modern Family’s Ed O’Neil still failed to realize whom she was when she ran into him at the airport. While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ed recounted his recent encounter with Britney, in which he took a picture with her without realizing who she was.

While Ed thought she was just another fan of his award-winning TV show, his manager subsequently informed him that he had been talking with the one-and-only Britney Spears. Ed recounted, “My manager texts me and goes, ‘what is this [picture]? 53,000 likes. It’s Britney Spears’…I mean. Look at the look on my face. Do I look like I’m sitting with Britney Spears?” While the rest of us would completely freak out if we bumped into Miss Spears in the airport, crazily enough Ed didn’t even realize whom he was talking to!
