That Was A Little Embarrassing
According to a recent episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden, actor Owen Wilson was given a lifetime access-all-areas pass by the Rolling Stones during a visit to see the band in Argentina. However, he ended up being asked to return the pass just a few hours later due to an incident that occurred backstage. Wilson took responsibility for the incident and admitted that he had made a mistake. He also mentioned that he had been invited backstage due to personal connections and had the opportunity to meet Mick Jagger and other members of the band.
Owen Wilson described how he and a friend were given “special laminates” that provided lifetime access to the Rolling Stones backstage areas while visiting the band in Argentina. Curious about what the all-access pass meant, Wilson decided to explore the backstage area and found himself in a spot where he could see Mick Jagger on stage. However, he soon realized that he was standing on a part of the stage, which led to him being chased away by security during Jagger’s performance of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.” Wilson admitted that he froze and tried to blend in, but his white outfit made it difficult. Eventually, security caught up to him and escorted him out of the restricted area.
