Rihanna serenaded Paul with a performance of "Stay."
People love Breaking Bad. Even some of the most famous people in the world, the AMC hit's star Aaron Paul has learned. Though it's been a full decade since the cultural phenomenon of a series first aired, people still get excited to see Jesse Pinkman, the character Paul played, in real life -- including both Drake and Rihanna. Paul told some stories of his wildest run-ins with celebrities who freaked out upon seeing him while on Jimmy Fallon this week.
First, there was Drake. "We randomly met in Paris in a parking garage," said Paul "I got out of my car ... he was with a bunch of people getting ready to get in a van. I'm like, 'Oh my God, there's Drake.' Then he just looks at me, runs over and gives me the biggest hug, and told me that he loved me." According to Paul, Drake also revealed he'd put Rihanna on to the show, and he'd learn just how much she loved it later on.
The encounter with Rihanna similarly took Paul by surprise. "I was at some event and an SUV was driving by me, and it stops and the back door opens, and it's Rihanna," he said. "She jumps out ... and literally starts running towards me. She threw her arms around me and said, 'I had to meet you, I needed proof of this. Then paparazzi took some pictures of us." Rihanna even tweeted out a picture of the two with the caption "My life has been completed."
That wasn't the last time the two would cross paths. A Super Bowl party Paul attended where Rihanna was performing resulted in what he felt was a serenade from the singer. "She walks to the end of the catwalk. I was on the second level of this small little venue. Then she starts singing 'Stay' directly to me," he said. "She does not lose eye contact with me. My wife is standing right next to me. She's like, 'She's singing to you.' And I'm like, "I know!' Maybe she was looking in my general direction, but the story I tell is that she sang to me."
