Update, April 11 at 12 p.m.: Al Pacino’s 21-year-old daughter, Olivia, has confirmed that, oh my God, the 81-year-old Oscar winner keeps his phone in a Shrek case. A dedicated “dramatic italian cinephile” with an Elaine Benes profile pic who goes by the handle @katepenniman reached out to Pacino’s daughter through Instagram DMs to ask, “there’s a bunch of people (including me) going crazy on twitter because they saw a picture of al in which it seems he has a shrek phone case? is that possible? because that would be iconic lmao anyway have a nice day.” Olivia replied with a cry-laughing react and answered, “Yes it is hahah!”
Sometimes all that glitters really is gold. Hoo-ah!
Original story follows.
How much can we ever truly know about another person? Someone can be a part of your life for decades, then suddenly reveal a new side of them. Something unexpected, something hauntingly beautiful. Al Pacino appears to have a Shrek-themed phone case. The world is full of serendipitous beauty, and we only need to look at Jason Momoa’s Instagram to find it. Documenting a post-opening dinner for Julian Schnabel, Momoa captured a tablescape of empty plates and one iPhone 13. The phone had old, old, old-school wired headphones and was seated in front of Pacino. Blank Check social-media producer Marie Bardi put the call out on Twitter: Find out what this phone case is. Within minutes, the case was solved. It was a collage of Shrek.
But one could not be sure it was Al Pacino’s phone. There were a lot of people dining with Momoa and Schabel. How could it be proven that Pacino was the Shrek enjoyer? The headphones. For some ungodly reason, the Daily Mail loves to write up every time Al Pacino goes speed-walking in Beverly Hills. He is always using those headphones, like he’s a silhouette in an iPod commercial. Furthermore, a sliver of Shrek could be seen in a photo of Pacino talking to Rita Ora and Taika Waititi at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Yes, the headphones were plugged in. We can say, with relative certainty and respect:
