Last week Pat Adams, a resident at Sunrise of Sonning care home in Reading, UK, celebrated her 87th birthday, according to Mashable.
Adams had previously taken part in the home’s “Wish upon a star” program, which encourages residents to make a wish that staff then attempt to fulfil. Adams wished for a meeting with George Clooney.
Flash-forward to Sunday, and her wish came gloriously true.

Clooney appeared at Sunrise of Sonning with flowers and a card, and spent around 15 minutes chatting with Adams.

“Pat was both delighted and surprised when George greeted her with a bouquet of flowers and card, and she is still beaming from ear to ear,” said a spokesperson for the care home.
“George and his wife live locally, and after receiving a few letters and the Sunrise Community Newsletter, George was inspired to make a visit.”
“We are so delighted that Pat’s wish came true,” Divisional Support General Manager at Sunrise Sonning, Malcolm Hague, was quoted as saying in a press release.
“She was absolutely thrilled to meet her great icon, and it was such a lovely surprise to see George greet her with flowers and a card. 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!”
