Three actors walk into an airport … No, this isn’t the beginning of a joke. This actually happened. Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried and Hugh Jackman all happened to walk into the same airport on Jan. 16, and their chance meeting just had to be captured.
Not only are the three of them respected actors in their own right, but they’ve also starred in movies together, making the moment even more photo-worthy. And Seyfried has played the daughter to both Brosnan and Jackman!
In the “Mama Mia!” movies, Brosnan’s character is one of the men who could be the biological father of Seyfried’s Sophie. And in “Les Miserables,” Jackman’s character looks after Seyfried’s character and serves as a father figure to her. (Seyfried and Jackman also acted together in “Pan,” but not as father and daughter.)
But, given her connection with these actors, it’s no wonder she wrote this photo when she posted it to Instagram: “Lucky daughter.”
Jackman also posted the photo with the simple, playful caption, “Our daughter.”
Brosnan originally posted the photo to his personal Instagram, saying how he’s these actors’ biggest fan:
“So there I am sitting in the airport lounge at (Geneva) airport and who should walk into my day but Amanda and Hugh … love you both and all the work that you do,” he captioned the photo.
And the admiration is very much mutual. In an interview promoting “Mama Mia! Here We Go Again,” Seyfried talked about what it was like getting to work with Brosnan again, 10 years after the first “Mama Mia!” movie hit theaters.
“There was just such connection on the first [movie]. We connected on something so powerful, and 10 years later to come back into that … it just felt so good. It felt like I was reuniting with my family,” she said in an interview with “This Morning.”
You can see the clip of the movie father-daughter duo from the “This Morning” YouTube channel:
The actress has also said nothing but kind words about Jackman and his “superhuman” acting talent.
“There is nothing bad to say about Hugh. He isn’t human,” she told Vanity Fair after starring alongside him, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe (all seen below) in “Les Miserables.”
She also added of Jackman, “I bet you anything he’s got some kind of superhuman capabilities, beyond just being just the kindest, gentlest soul I’ve come across.”
There’s nothing but love between these three, and honestly, we’ve got to say, it was great to see them reunited!
