Ready for a good, old-fashioned game of celebrities-can-be-funny-and-normal-online-sometimes? Kirsten Dunst made one fan’s very specific wish come true this week, and all it took was a tweet.

Louis Virtel (a comedian who previously went viral for his reaction to a correct answer on Jeopardy), made a confession on Twitter Wednesday evening: More than anything else, he wants to be rejected after introducing himself to Dunst. If you’ve seen her movies, you probably know the iconic snarl he’s thinking about. Earning Dunst’s icy, popular-girl disapproval was Virtel’s greatest goal.

“I’d say my biggest dream is telling Kirsten Dunst I’m a huge fan only for her to mutter ‘Pathetic’ and walk away,” he tweeted.

One way or another, the dream seems to have made it into Dunst’s mentions, because Thursday evening she did Virtel the honor of brushing off his fantasy.

“Pathetic,” she wrote.

It’s like light social BDSM—he was negged by the meanest girl in Mona Lisa Smile for all the world to see.

Virtel immediately replied that he’s “honored” by the gesture.

“And now I have no dreams left!” he said.
