Playing Mira Sorvino Finally Apologizes to the Real Inventor of Post-Its

Who can forget when Mira Sorvino hilariously lied about creating Post-It notes in 1997's Romy and Michele's High School Reunion?

It's been 18 years since the comedy came out, but the '90s hit has clearly stood the test of time. Case in point? The 48-year-old actress appeared on HuffPost Live on Wednesday, when she was surprised with an appearance by none other than scientist Arthur Fry himself, who actually invented the Post-It note in the '70s along with his colleague, scientist Spencer Silver. Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow's characters memorably lied about creating the famous yellow sticky note to impress their former class classmates at their high school reunion.

And the moment between Sorvino and Fry couldn't be cuter.

"Hi Art, sorry if I've stolen your thunder," Sorvino laughed when Fry appeared through Skype.

Fry, however, was more than happy with his shoutout in the film.

"I tell you, when I go to my class reunions, they always ask me about you guys," he shared. "So it's really nice to meet you, even if it's over Skype."

Sorvino then went the extra mile with her apology, slipping back into her Romy voice. Watch at the 5:15 mark!
