What would you do if you had the opportunity to go to a Prince party? If you are Regina King, you would fall asleep!

The Emmy-winning actress shared a hilarious story on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Friday of how she, despite being a huge fan of the Purple One, was not able to keep her eyes open when she was finally invited to his famous post-Oscar party years ago.

“The Prince party is THE party,” she tells Fallon.

She went to the event with Reese Witherspoon after they both ditched the hallowed Vanity Fair Oscar Party,

“And Reese and I feel asleep,” she laughs.

Fallon asked her to clarify if she fell asleep or just took a nap.

“It was sleep,” she said.

Luckily, she was able to meet Prince two more times to make up for that mishap! Too funny!
