Neil Patrick Harris Sneaks a Photo of Bill Murray After Running Into Him on a Flight
By Jackie Willis
Even Neil Patrick Harris has fanboy moments.
While on a flight from Berlin, Germany, the How I Met Your Mother star snapped a selfie on the plane that showed Bill Murray in the background. "Bill Murray was on my flight home from Berlin, so that was cool," Harris wrote. "He's their GQ Man of the Year, and had perfectly lovely small talk. #respect"
Murray attended the GQ Men of the year Award 2016 in Berlin, Germany, last Thursday, which also included honorees Luke Evans, Naomi Campbell, Will.i.am and Liv Tyler. The 66-year-old actor certainly gained a few more fans when he hit the stage to perform "America" from the musical West Side Story.
Just as Harris shared his admiration for Murray, the Groundhog Day star couldn't contain his excitement when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series earlier this month. "You believed in something that actually was true," a teary-eyed Murray told St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist Jose de Jesus Ortiz. "The whole city, all its fans are validated ... Dreams come true."
"We'd become such great losers. Good sports," he added of the Cubs not winning a World Series in 108 years. "I just hope we're good winners."
