An 87-year-old woman in England recently proved that her ticker is still strong enough to handle big surprises after she received the biggest surprise of her life – a visit from George Clooney.
Pat Adams lives in a retirement home in southeast England. The facility has a program called "wish upon a star" in which residents get to make a wish and the staff tries to grant it. For Adams, her wish was to one day meet Clooney, and it's something she's repeatedly wished for.
The staff made several attempts to make it happen and believed it eventually would – because Clooney and his wife, Amal, actually live nearby.
Then, this past Sunday, the Hollywood star paid an unexpected visit to Sunrise Senior Living and asked to see Pat.
Staff brought her down and she was thrilled to see him waiting for her with a bouquet of flowers and a card.
The facility's general manager said, "This was a classy gesture from a wonderful man, and it has brought smiles to everyone at Sunrise of Sonning! Huge thank you to George!"
