The pensioner who was visited by George Clooney on her 87th birthday has spoken out about meeting the actor and the Hollywood star was exactly how you would imagine him to be.
Pat Adams told her care home her birthday wish would be to meet the 55-year-old, and somehow they actually made it happen.
But given her 87 years, Pat has pretty much seen it all, and played it all as cool as a cucumber.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, she was asked if she’d been starstruck: ‘No, I was just thrilled to meet him. He was the perfect gentleman and a delight.’
George brought her a bunch of flowers and a card which read: ‘Pat, I thought you’d like some flowers. With love, George.’
The 87-year-old, who was born in Finchley, North London, said George was a complete charmer, and we’d expect nothing less: ‘Charming man. I shook his hand, perfectly natural, and that was it.’
George, who lives near to Pat’s care home, decided on a visit after seeing in the home’s newsletter that her birthday wish was to have a photograph with him.
Malcolm, the general manager, said: ‘At Sunrise we’re passion about resident-centred care, individuality, freedom of choice, and we try to make special moments come true.
‘We started Wish Upon A Star six months ago and asked residents to let us know what they’d like with the promise we’d try and make their wish come true.’
Pat was then asked if she’d questioned George on his impending fatherhood, and she replied: ‘No that’s his private life, I don’t like to be too nosey.’
