Olivia Wilde had a sweet meeting with Chris Farley when she was just only ten years old.

"I was an after-party for Saturday Night Live, which was a big treat for me, and I was a fat kid, and I was standing by the dessert table — as usual," she recalled during Thursday's episode of The Late Late Show. "I was standing there, eating a brownie kind of self-consciously."

She continued, "Chris Farley walked up and just looked at me, locked eyes with me and took a brownie. He put it in his mouth, then took another brownie and put it in his mouth. And then another one, and put it in his mouth. And then he started, like, slamming them into his mouth. 

"It was all to delight a child," Wilde said. "He took time out of his party to come over and make me laugh. It was so, so moving, so sweet."

"What a great story about a great man," host James Corden added.
