Morgan Freeman鈥檚 2018 SAG Awards speech got a lot of people talking last night, not only because he called out the ceremony鈥檚 gender-specific statuette, but also because he interrupted himself to talk to someone in the audience. And now we know who that someone is.

For those who need a little refresher, when the beloved actor took the stage to accept the SAG Life Achievement Award last night, he began by saying, 鈥淭hese moments in your life鈥斺 But then he suddenly stopped.

Obviously distracted by a fellow actor sitting at a table in the audience, he paused his speech to address the person directly, saying, 鈥淗ey! I鈥檓 talking to you.鈥

When the individual (who couldn鈥檛 be seen by viewers at home) apparently questioned if they were indeed the one being singled out, Freeman answered softly, 鈥淵eah. Hey!鈥 Though a laugh could be heard off-screen, it was unclear if it belonged to the person involved .

The actor then added, 鈥淥kay, well, you just stand out. Okay, that鈥檚 all,鈥 before starting his speech over again.

Seeing one side of the exchange was amusing enough, but we鈥檙e loving it even more now that we know it was Grace and Frankie star Lily Tomlin who had caught Freeman鈥檚 attention.

According to TMZ, the award winner revealed backstage that he鈥檚 never able to resist a greeting when he spots her. 鈥淪he鈥檚 a wonder in herself and I鈥檝e always loved her,鈥 he admitted. As for the unexpected mid-speech conversation, he explained simply, 鈥淚 see her, I say hello.鈥 Makes sense to us.
