A Lebanese tourist didn’t seem to recognize late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel when he walked up to her and introduced himself, the late-night star recalled during a recent monologue.
The tourist was taking a photo of Kimmel’s Hollywood star when the host decided to walk up to her and make her day. But it didn’t go as planned!
He approached the woman and said, “Hi, I’m Jimmy Kimmel.”
The woman replied, “No you’re not!”
He asked where she is from, and she replied Beirut.
“You know, I am Jimmy Kimmel,” he said again.
“You wish you had his money,” she replied.
Kimmel said he was heading to the movie theatre when he noticed the woman and her child taking a photo of his star. He thought it would be a fun surprise to come up to them.
“I think I might need to hire a publicist in Beirut,” Kimmel joked.
