eleb sightings are pretty rare, even if you live in Los Angeles (take it from me), so when you come across a famous person in their natural habitat, sometimes you just have to ask for a picture. That's exactly what happened when this family happened to spot Matthew Broderick while they were on vacation in Montauk.
Montauk! Not necessarily a celebrity hub. Thankfully, Mr. Broderick was kind enough to take a photo, but that's not where this story ends. It's what's in the background of the photo that will knock your socks off.
"The Matthew Broderick Story" starts out like many others...
A family. A vacation.
An unexpected celebrity sighting.
What are you supposed to do when you see Ferris Bueller in real life?
Are you just supposed to ignore Adult Simba?
Say “Hello!” to Mr. Sarah Jessica Parker and then just move on with your day?!
I think not.
Obviously, you have to ask for a picture.
Broderick took time out of his shopping trip with his friend to take a photo with a fan. That’s a gracious famous person if I ever did see one.
Only Broderick's friend was kind of in the way.
And no matter how far this guy asked the friend to move, he wasn’t leaving the frame of the picture.
You can only ask a random friend of Matthew Broderick’s to do so much.
So the picture was taken with Broderick’s friend in the background.
And that’s where this gets interesting, folks…
