The full story

Ben told Jimmy his 20-year-old daughter is currently in drama school.

Her friend from the course, who's British, was strolling through Hyde Park one day when a man cycled by on a bicycle, and dropped his wallet.

When she looked inside, she learned it belonged to Owen Wilson.

She took the wallet to park authorities, who joked, "Maybe you should go on a spending spree."

Ben continued the story, "Then she remembers, 'Wait a minute... I think Ella's dad is friends with Owen Wilson.'"

So she rang Ben's daughter Ella, who texted him, "My friend just found your friend Owen Wilson's wallet."

"So I texted Owen and I said, 'Hey, if you want your wallet back, text me right away.'"

"Five minutes later I get a text back: 'Wowwww.'"
