Anytime I meet a celebrity, I want to be the fan who leaves an impression. Sadly, that rarely happens for me.
However, it happened for Kirby Koo, who works in Facebook’s sales department and got to meet the one and only Zac Efron this week. Zac and his That Awkward Moment co-stars, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, hit up the Facebook headquarters to answer some fan questions.
While we don’t know what Kirby said to Zac, we do know that it affected him so much that he wrote about it on Instagram.
Zac shared the photo above with the following caption on the social media site:
“@Curbiekoo, I have so much more I want to say. And I will- when I find the words. But I’ll start here- When you stood up, with such strength, and sincerity and gave me perhaps the nicest compliment I’ve been paid…it meant so much more than that to me. @Facebook and online media in general, show only half the picture- sure people see me, but I never get to see them. Yesterday was the first time in a very long time that I was able to look into your eyes and remember why I do what I do- and will never stop. I needed that, more than you will ever know and just wanted to say thanks- face to face soon I hope. :)”
Guys, that is like, the nicest thing ever. Clearly whatever she said to him must have hit a nerve. Kirby was kind enough to respond to Zac saying, “Zac, I am so incredibly touched by your note. Meeting you was always the dream, but I never could have imagined that you would respond with such genuine kindness and literally open arms. The impact you and your talent have had on me and so many millions of others should never be underestimated. Beyond the actor, thank you for being such a warm, generous person and I’d be humbled to consider you a friend.”
So guys, now we have to figure out what Kirby said so that we can say it to our favorite celebrity and be remembered forever. What do you think it was? And how cute is Zac’s Instagram? Sound off in the comments!
