It turns out that Ellen DeGeneres still has a few surprises up her sleeve for Edgar Martirosyan, the owner of Armenian Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizza who delivered three pies to the star-studded audience at the 86th annual Academy Awards in March, the Huffington Post reports.
In addition to surprising him with a with a very generous $1,000 tip when he appeared on her show the day after the Oscars, DeGeneres also introduced him to his favorite actress, Julia Roberts.
During Roberts segment on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, May 7, the actress was game to hide when DeGeneres invited Martirosyan back out on stage. She surprised him with a tap on the shoulder, after DeGeneres had just casually mentioned that Roberts was his favorite actress.
Martirosyan was stunned when he realized just who was standing behind him, and a wide smile broke out across his face as he hugged the actress, before giving her a rather charming kiss on the hand.
“It’s nice to see you again. What a sweet reaction,” Roberts told Martirosyan.
And because it was “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” everyone in the audience got pizza.
