A New Jersey woman who thought she was paying for a struggling man's cup of coffee at a gas station on Friday, turned out to be country music star Keith Urban. "Do people ever tell you that you look like Keith Urban?' And he said, 'I am Keith Urban, ' and I said, 'No you're not really?"
Keith Urban was buying some things at an New Jersey convenience store when a local teacher offered to pay for him without even knowing who he was.
"We decided when we saw military people we would treat them at Wawa or Dunkin Donuts or whatever", she said.
"It looked like he was using a card and it didn't go through", Reed to KYW-TV.
"I didn't know it was Keith Urban".
Ruth revealed he thanked her and said his name was Keith.
Luckily, Urban's bodyguard confirmed to Reed that the man she helped was, indeed, the Australian star. She says she had made a resolution to help Wawa customers and jumped at this chance to do good.
"He said "That's my sister, we can ask her, ' and I said 'okay, I don't think she would lie to some old lady", said Reed.
Reed admits she took some convincing.
She says, "It was then I realized what an idiot I was".
"I said, 'Really? Really?"
Reed said she hopes the story inspires others to do good deeds for one another.
"I didn't believe him", she wrote.
"And I just fell apart, fell apart", she said. "I asked where Nicole [Kidman] was and who was the lady [he was with]". "And he didn't. He was very kind".
