During a recent sit down with ELLE magazine, Damson Idris revealed that he had an awkward encounter with Rihanna before getting the opportunity to walk in the singer’s “Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 Show” last year.

“It was at a party that I’m probably never going to be invited to after I tell this story,” the “Snowfall” star said in the interview. “She was at the bar. And I was like, ‘This is my moment.’ And I walked up to the bar with my best James Bond impersonation. ‘Hi, I’m Damson… Damson Idris. Lovely to meet you. You look fantastic today.’”

“And then she was kind of giving me one-worded answers like, get out of here, you freak,” Idris continued. “And then I said, ‘How come, as I’m speaking to you, it’s like you think I’m up to something?’ And she was like, ‘Because you are.’ Fast forward. Savage Fenty. Love you, Rihanna. Full-circle moment.”
