Paige Craig, an influencer from Florida, was recently on a flight to Los Angeles when she noticed people kept approaching a male sitting near her for photos.
Based on the attention he was receiving, Paige had a feeling he was someone famous, taking to TikTok to work out the mystery celebrity.
She shared a quick clip of the VIP, with the message: “Can someone tell me who this man is because people keep taking pics with him and I’m too scared to ask him who he is.
“Other information – he speaks Spanish and is a very nice man. Thank you for your service.”
The TikTok began with the camera focusing on her face before she turned it to show a man with brown hair and glasses sitting in the seat next to hers.
Other information- he speaks spanish and is a very nice man. Thank you for your service.

The video has since raked in over 30 million views in a matter of days, with many admitting they were shocked Paige did not recognise the famous face.
The man sitting next to her on the flight has since been revealed to be none other than Mexican actor and director Eugenio González Derbez.
Derbez is best known for starring in Apple TV+’s Acapulco, as well as movies Girl in Progress, Miracles from Heaven and Instructions Not Included.
His other credits include Academy Award-winning Apple TV+ movie CODA, How To Be A Latin Lover, Dora and The Lost City Of Gold.

Derbez’s voice has also appeared in many animations including The Secret Life of Pets and The Angry Birds Movie 2.
Speaking to Insider, Paige shared her fears of uploading the video mid-flight in case Derbez saw it while they were still sitting together.
Thankfully, he didn’t show any hints he saw the video while in the air – but shared in the laugh when he sent her a video response the next day.
He shared on his TikTok: “Hi Paige, let me introduce myself. My name is Eugenio Derbez and I’m basically an actor and director.”

Derbez then shared a montage of clips of him in his biggest roles, before turning the question back on Paige.
He quipped: “Now, can someone tell me who this girl is?
“Because people keep following her, she has more than one million followers on TikTok.”
Eugenio also shared a snap of himself staring away from the camera to Instagram, which he captioned: “Now I have to look everywhere. Trying to avoid peeking.”
Paige told Insider of his response: “It was also nice knowing he wasn’t going to put a restraining order on me for the creeper vibes.”
