Bill Murray Sent Chrissy Teigen a Plate of Half-Eaten Food

Even the ‘Cravings’ author has a weird Bill Murray story

Everyone’s favorite funny man Bill Murray can usually be spotted at a baseball game, hanging out with celebrity chefs, bartending in Brooklyn, or doing something else wacky at a restaurant — which is exactly what happened to cookbook author and famous face Chrissy Teigen. After viewing The New Yorker video “Friend of Bill,” in which people relate their Murray run-ins, Teigen took to her favorite podium, Twitter, to tell her tale.

“Wait this happened to me too. A waiter dropped a plate of half eaten food and said it was from "the man at the bar" - it was bill murray”

Usually folks have stories of the comedian stealing fries off their plate and leaving them with a “No one will ever believe you,” but Teigen received the opposite — Murray’s leftovers. This of course leaves so many questions: What was the restaurant? What was on the plate? Did Teigen eat any of it? Why didn’t Murray finish his meal? Did Teigen take it home? We need answers.
