Turns out Al Pacino might be a big “Shrek” fan.
Fans on Twitter were spiraling after noticing the 81-year-old actor has a phone case with what appears to be the animated green ogre’s face all over it.
At first glance, the photo seems to be extremely ordinary with a bunch of empty plates. The “Godfather” star can be seen alongside other friends, including Mick Jagger’s ex-girlfriend Noor Alfallah, 28.
But the talk of the night wasn’t the sighting of Pacino and Alfallah leaving together — everyone had their eyes on Pacino’s phone case.
When Marie Bardi, social media producer at the “Blank Check” podcast, brought the phone case to Twitter’s attention, the photo soon went viral.
