Owen Wilson once had a lifetime backstage pass with the Rolling Stones. Unfortunately, one fateful night led to it being taken away.

The actor recalled this story in an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. He said he was friends with some of the band members and that one of his own friends was tight with Mick Jagger. Due to these relationships, he was given an “all access” laminate the was good for any and all Stones shows.

“The first concert I’d ever seen as a kid was the Stones on the ‘Tattoo You’ tour in 1980,” said Wilson. “So, getting this [pass] was just so exciting.”

Cut to a Rolling Stones show in Argentina. Wilson says he’s “wandering around and testing [the pass] out.” He said no one stopped him due to his all-access pass. Things then took a turn, though. Wilson said he found himself at a point offstage where he had a clear sight of Jagger. The only problem was he wasn’t actually “offstage.”

Wilson says, “All of a sudden he bolts during ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ and comes running down. It turns out where I was was part of the stage a little bit. So, I just sort of froze and tried to be inconspicuous … And then someone came running over [shouting], ‘Get out of here! Move! You’re not supposed to be here!'”

The actor said he went to bed that night looking back on the “gnarly experience.” The next morning, Wilson receives a call from Jagger’s security team asking if he still has his laminate. He did, and the security rep said they were going to stop by his hotel and pick it up.

Wilson was clearly bummed by the ordeal, but he took the whole thing in stride. He said, “I get it. [Jagger] had a show to do. He doesn’t need some Bozo kind of cruising around distracting him.”
