Angela Kinsey may have played a grumpy snob who only had eyes for Dwight Schrute and her cats on The Office, but in real life, the actress is thrilled to show her pride and celebrate the success of Billie Eilish during one of the most exciting weeks of the pop star's career to date.

Eilish's full-length debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, dropped on Friday (March 29) and features a track that samples dialogue from one of The Office's most beloved episodes. "My Strange Addiction" incorporates lines from the screenplay Office boss Michael Scott wrote for a hilariously bad movie, Threat Level Midnight, as well as snippets of various Office characters chatting throughout the track.

Kinsey is one of the Office cast members who was excited to hear the show getting such a creative tribute, and she shared a photo of her and Eilish snapped on the fly in an airport to wish her well on When We Fall Asleep's release day.

"We met at the San Francisco airport awhile back and I’m a dinosaur so I had no idea how talented you are!! I have loved catching up with you on Instagram," Kinsey wrote. "Your #theoffice Mom is over here rooting for you! Way to go!"
