JJ Abrams' wallet is Lost and found

JJ Abrams has revealed how a Lost fan found his wallet

JJ Abrams has told how a fan who found his wallet held him to ransom until he revealed what happened at the end of TV show Lost.

The TV and filmmaker - who is set to direct the new Star Wars movie - revealed how the policewoman who found his lost wallet turned out to be a huge fan of his hit show about a group of plane crash survivors stranded on an island, and was desperate to know what happened.

JJ explained: ""It was a really funny, crazy story where this one policewoman, rather diminutive, found my wallet and held it ransom until I would tell her what the end of Lost was.

"But despite that she was incredibly sweet and the woman who found it didn't have to turn it in, but she did. It was very hard to give her the money from it."

The American director attended the UK premiere of new movie A New York Winter's Tale starring Colin Farrell in London, to support Irish film.

JJ, who hosts the US-Ireland Alliance's annual Oscar Wilde: Honouring the Irish in Film with his production company Bad Robot, paid tribute to the kindness of Irish people.

He said: "The people of Ireland have proved themselves to be the most extraordinary kind and compassionate people I have ever met. My wife, who is Irish-Catholic herself, she comes from a wonderful people.

"I was honoured to receive an honorary Irishman award, so I feel I'm one of them. Plus no one has more fun than the Irish."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
