Ed O'Neill's Daughter Called Him a "Moron" Over Britney Spears Pic

Getty Images via ABCIt’s already known that Modern Family star Ed O’Neill took a now-viral picture with a female fan he didn’t realize was Britney Spears.  He’s now publicly owning up to his clueless-ness  — he did it on The Ellen DeGeneres Show the other day, and now he’s done it on ABC’s Live with Kelly.

On Live with Kelly, the actor — whose voice can be heard in the upcoming movie Finding Dory — explains how the picture came to be, and what his friends and family thought of it.

“I was in the airport, I was going to Hawaii…This lovely lady came up to me and said, you know, she’d like a picture. And I said, ‘You know, my flight’s leaving!’ and she said, ‘Oh please, I love your show, you’re my favorite on it.’ And I thought, ‘Well, I’m the only one here.'”

O’Neill explained he had “no idea” it was Spears, and obliged her her pic.

“The next day my manager goes, ‘What is this?’ adding the pic got, ’53 thousand likes!'”

He added: “And my 16-year-old daughter says, ‘You are a moron.'”

Finding Dory, which also stars the voices of O’Neill’s Modern Family co-star Ty Burrell, as well as Ellen DeGeneres, Idris Elba, and Albert Brooks, will be released June 17 by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
