After pics of the actor and his son chillin' with Rihanna at a basketball game went viral, he had to give props to her epic Super Bowl halftime performance. We hear ya loud and clear, E-Hawke! Here's a look at the hilarious exchange.

It's the moment everyone has been waiting for – Ethan Hawke finally reacted to those iconic photos of him sandwiched between Rihanna and his son!

Ethan Hawke might have looked chill sitting next to RiRi, but he had actually swiped his son's seat at the game. While Levon was busy fanboying over Rihanna, his pops shamelessly took advantage of the sitch and totally upstaged him in all three pics! "After Rihanna’s brilliant half time performance, I’m hoping my son can find it in his heart to forgive a Dad for taking his moment," the actor hilariously reflected of the viral exchange (below).

Ethan Hawke was on the receiving end of some harsh words from his ex-wife Uma Thurman's BFF, Alyssa Milano. She hilariously commented, "Not sure I would have gone with this posture whilst sitting next to a goddess." LOL. Gwyneth Paltrow also weighed in on the hilarious post, commenting, "Could you sit up straight, for god's sake? You're sitting next to Rihanna!" A fan wrote, "Top 10 iconic moments of all time," while another user commented: "you were so real for this." Even his son Hawke's son, Levon, joined the conversation, commenting, "Iconic content." We're all living for pop culture moments like these! And with RiRi officially expecting her second child with rapper A$AP Rocky, we've got lots more iconic moments in the making. Stay tuned!
