Over the weekend, Driver tweeted that she spotted the couple at an airport and was asked by the woman next to her if she recognized the pair.
When Driver said she did, the woman replied: “Don’t you just love celebrities?”
.@chrissyteigen Just saw you at the airport. The woman next to me said “DO YOU KNOW WHO THAT WAS!!?” Yes, I said. “IT WAS CHRISSY TEIGAN AND JOHN LEGEND!!!!” Yes, I said. “ DON’T YOU LOVE CELEBRITIES?” Yes, I said. 😘

Oooof. Awkward, much?
The actress, who has starred in films and TV shows such as “Good Will Hunting,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” and “Will & Grace,” appeared to take the moment in stride and found it funny enough to share on Twitter.
In response, many fans had lots to say about the moment:
This is wonderful. (Also, it makes me happy that I’ve managed to resist fawning the half dozen or so times I’ve spotted you out and about.)

Wait. This person said this to you… after hearing you TALK? Your awesome voice is probably nearly as identifiable as Christopher Walken’s!
(Well, I said ‘almost…’)
