"We were having dinner and we took the dessert and we were having a drink, two drinks, and we were like, 'Nobody's coming here to pick us up,'" Javier said on The Tonight Show.

He continued, "So I step out of the room and I say, 'Hey, we are here.' 'Ah, are you finished?' 'Yes.' Then Prince came and said, 'Are you done?' 'Yes.'"

As soon as they mentioned they were done, the group was escorted to their seats and the concert began.

"And we were like, 'Oh, my God! They've been waiting an hour for us to finish the dinner!' So that's my Hollywood star story: I made people wait for an hour," Javier shared.
