Finally Al Pacino is chatting about the case… his phone case.
"My daughter gave me that," he said on "Today" this week. "My youngest daughter put that on my phone."
The "Heat" star went viral back in April after a group photo including Al was posted to Instagram. Fans, though, couldn't take their eyes off of Al's cell phone case, which was covered with pictures of "Shrek."
As social media was having a field day with the revelation, DreamWorks Animation got in on the fun, tweeting, "Real recognize real." DreamWorks also included a picture of Shrek holding a phone case adorned with Al faces.
"You can't make this up, Al Pacino is literally the perfect man to exist and he likes Shrek," one person commented on Twitter after seeing the phone case. Another fan wrote, "THIS IS THE SINGLE GREATEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME."
One intrepid Twitter user reached out to Al's 21-year-old daughter Olivia to find out if "Shrek" was the face on the case.
"There's a bunch of people (including me) going crazy on twitter because they saw a picture of al in which it seems he has a shrek phone case," the user said. "Is that possible? because that would be iconic lmao anyway have a nice day."
Olivia confirmed that it was, indeed, a "Shrek" phone case.
Funny enough, Twitter noticed the case before Al did!
"I didn't even look at it until social media told me what was on my phone," "The Godfather" actor said on "Today." "And I took a look and said, 'Oh, that's 'Shrek.'"
Asked if he will keep using the case, the acting icon didn't miss a beat, saying, "Of course, it was a gift!"
