Dreams do come true! James Marsden got a passionate kiss from his celebrity crush, Helen Mirren, during their appearance on ‘Ellen’. Needless to say, he was totally stunned by the wonderful moment. Click through to see James’ best day ever!
James Marsden, 43, dropped by the November 28 episode of Ellen, and revealed that he has a “massive crush” on the legendary Dame Helen Mirren, 71. Host Ellen DeGeneres, 58, ratted poor James out and showed the audience a photo he tried to sneakily take of Helen at the airport without her ever noticing. To make matters worse, Helen was backstage at the show at that very moment, waiting to be interviewed after James!
James had to ‘fess up that he had found out they were on the same flight together to Rome, and got a little overzealous and excited when they made it to the airport. “When I got off the flight I followed her to baggage claim, and in a very creepy voyeuristic way I took a photo of her while she was walking,” he told Ellen. Oh boy. “I was avoiding her backstage because I didn’t want her to know I was stalking her.”
Ellen made up for calling him out by giving him the best surprise ever. Helen ran out on stage, grabbed James, and kissed him on the lips! Talk about a holiday miracle! She posed for an adorable photo with him, and gave him a big hug. James was so red during the whole thing; he couldn’t stop blushing. “Very nice to meet you. I think you’re brilliant, and you’re so handsome,” Helen told him. Omg!
Helen actually laughed off his airport pic, saying that her husband was in the background, too. Whoops! Helen left the stage after the epic moment, but then came back out and dragged James away! Scandalous! A very bewildered James returned to finish his interview with Ellen, joking he gave her his phone number. He thanked Ellen for the lovely “Christmas gift.”
