You'll never guess the punchline.

It's not every day that you get to meet Matthew Broderick, 55, star of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and adult Simba in The Lion King.

So when one father stumbled upon the star in a little store in Montauk, he couldn't help but ask him to take a photo with his daughter. Here's how his friend tells what he calls "The Matthew Broderick Story" on Twitter:

"A few years ago a friend of mine took his family out to Montauk on vacation and had stopped at a little store to get snacks, etc, and who do they see but that Star of Stage and Screen, Matthew Broderick, also in the store with a friend. So my friend politely asks Broderick if he will take a photo with his daughter. Broderick galliantly [sp] obliges, but this is a once in a lifetime photo and he wants it to be just right, so he asks Broderick's friend to kind of move to the side a bit out of frame, and he moves a bit. And my friend says, just a little more, a little more, keeps doing the nudging motion with his hand. Lots of nudging. Okay he wont move any farther, fine, we can crop him out…and they take the picture and go back to the car all big grins to the rest of the family, who all shout in unison WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??"

Why did his family have that reaction, you ask?

Well, look who Broderick's friend was:
