UPDATE: It seems actor Zach Braff learned an important "life lesson" by sitting next to Mitt Romney on a flight to Utah. Just because two people may disagree politically, that doesn't mean there is no common ground to be found.
LIFE LESSON: our politics are quite different, but @MittRomney and I are having the best conversation ever. Very cool dude.— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) January 25, 2014
Read our original story below.
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was ironically seated next to actor Zach Braff, a major supporter of President Barack Obama.
On Friday night posted a photo of his new "seat mate" on Twitter:

Before posting the photo, Braff tweeted about seeing Romney at JFK airport and "stalking" him.
"I feel like the odds of me and @MittRomney being on the same flight to Salt Lake City are good. I shall report back," he wrote.
Romney then tweeted out his own photo, complete with a "Hunger Games" reference:
Braff was routinely critical of Romney's 2012 presidential campaign, though the two look entirely comfortable around one another. Romney's son, Matt, even told his dad that he was "jealous" because he's a big fan of "Scrubs," the popular TV show Braff is best known for.
We'll update this post of Braff or Romney reveals what the pair talked about on the flight. Both men were reportedly heading back to Utah, where the Sundance Film Festival is held.
