Which should come as a surprise to no one.

So apparently Norman Reedus‘ sheer presence is enough to bring fans to tears (shocker).

The Walking Dead star recently attended the Montclair Film Festival where he chatted with Sundance TV’s Joel Stillerman. But when it came to the Q&A portion, apparently a few fans just couldn’t deal.

Before one girl could even get out the words, she reportedly burst into tears and then blurted out, “Why are you so cool?”

Excellent question!

Reedus took it like a champ and quickly called her onstage and told her, “Because I had a cool mom.”

His answer, of course, made him even cooler (if that’s possible), as did his later decision to give another fan a statue of himself.

So Norman, how are you so cool? Inquiring minds need to know.

Lena Finkel is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel (by far!), but when she’s not watching RHONY, you can probably find her hanging with her kitty Tom or tweeting at Sen. Chuck Schumer.
