Bruno Mars and Michelle Pfeiffer seem to have struck up a new friendship years after the latter was immortalized in the 24K Magic singer’s music.

Back in 2014, the “Leave the Door Open” artist, 38, teamed up with DJ and producer Mark Ronson for their epic “Uptown Funk” smash off the latter’s Uptown Special album. In their collaboration, Mars dedicated a line to Pfeiffer, 66, saying, “This hit, that ice cold / Michelle Pfeiffer, that white gold.”

Three years later, in 2017, the What Lies Beneath actress reacted to being namechecked in the song during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show. Pfeiffer told the host that although Mars didn’t ask for permission to mention her in the song, “I was incredibly flattered. It was very cool."

Fast-forward to Thursday, May 9, Pfeiffer and Mars finally crossed paths and posed for a selfie to document the moment. “Look who I ran into last night! 🤍” the 'Batman Returns' actress captioned their Instagram snap.

Elsewhere in Pfeiffer’s interview with Graham Norton, the mom of two admitted, “It was a little embarrassing at times,” hearing her name on “Uptown Funk,” especially during “carpool with the kids.”

“The song comes on, and my son’s like [rolls eyes],” she said. “Or I’m in exercise class, and the song comes on,” she added, gesturing another eye roll. “But I love the song."

Mars, meanwhile, is gearing up for the next set of dates of his Las Vegas residency at Dolby Live at Park MGM, with upcoming shows scheduled from Friday, June 7 to Sunday, Sept. 1.

Back in March, NewsNation reported Mars racked up a gambling debt of over $50 million owed to MGM.
