Pat Adams' 87th birthday might have been her best one yet.

Before her big day, the retirement home resident made a really big wish — to meet her favorite movie star, George Clooney.

On Sunday, her wish came true!

The A-lister stopped by Britain's Sunrise of Sonning Retirement and Assisted Living Facility and surprised the birthday girl — and everyone else.

Adams "loves George Clooney and mentions everyday how she would love him to meet him," Sunrise concierge Linda Jones explained in a Facebook post.

So the facility put the word out in hopes that the actor, who has a home in the area, would hear about it.

However, workers never heard back from the star. That is, until he showed up.

"We didn't know he was coming," Jones said. "Total utter shock when his PA/Bodyguard said he was in the car in the carpark!!"

And he wasn't empty handed.

Clooney brought along a bouquet of bright flowers, and he even left a handwritten message for his special fan.

"We are so delighted that Pat's wish came true," Malcolm Hague, a general manager at Sunrise of Sonning, said in a statement. "She was absolutely thrilled to meet her great icon, and it was such a lovely surprise to see George greet her with flowers and a card."

"It has brought smiles to everyone at Sunrise of Sonning!" he added. "Huge thank you to George!
