It is not that often for celebrities to turn the tables on their fans and supporters; they also know the pleasure of ruining someone else’s photo. On the flip side, maybe they made that person’s day by striking a pose in the background without letting anyone know. Here are some prime examples of celebs who photobombed normal folks like you and me.
Fair enough, this does not really count as photobombing since the person who took the photo had been perfectly aware that this celeb was posing for her camera. Still, we are sure that she was excited that her favorite artist brought her on set and allowed her to take a selfie with him and the crowd! Bruce Springsteen really is the man. The Boss must have made this female fan very happy. Good for her.
Can you imagine simply going about your day and making your way down the street when this happens? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just passed this guy by while he was taking a selfie! He must be the luckiest guy alive right now. He had great timing as well, perfectly catching the wrestler-actor who had been on his way to the gym. If you do not love the People’s Champ for some reason, this might convince you.
If you think about it, there is something impressive about the trajectory of John Krasinski’s career. The actor-comedian of The Office fame has since walked down the aisle with Hollywood actress Emily Blunt. He also made his directorial debut with A Quiet Place. He must be a busy man, but he makes sure to support the Boston Red Sox whenever he can. The fans must have been shocked.
This lady decided to have a photo taken of her at the parking lot of the local grocery store. We don’t know why you would want to do that, but okay. Maybe she wanted to take advantage of the nice weather. Anyway, we bet she was glad that her husband clicked at that exact moment. She had no idea then that he managed to capture Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler in the same photo. What a nice surprise.
It is true that Jason Segel had not been in the limelight the past few years, but we cannot deny that he is one of the most charming actors to have graced the big and small screens. After all, this is the guy who portrayed Marshall Eriksen on How I Met Your Mother. He was a hopeless romantic on the show, which seems to be the case in real life as well. Just look at how he photobombed this couple!
Zach Braff was not planning to go to a random wedding to give the bride and groom the biggest surprise of their lives. No, he had only been walking through Times Square when he walked right into a photoshoot. The rest, as they say, is history.
We are sure that Aaron Paul is now set for life. He did, after all, play Jesse Pinkman in the award-winning drama series Breaking Bad. We are sure that he still hopes to land more big roles in the future. Until that happens, the actor will just pass the time by going to music festivals such as Coachella. He was somehow able to stay anonymous and unnoticed in the crowds. The couple only recognized him when they saw how he ruined their photo.
Funny guy Adam Sandler is good at making people laugh, so it is not all that surprising to see him wander into the wedding photo session of a random couple. Instead of backing off, he got to work and posed for a few photos with the happy couple. The newlyweds will never forget this. They narrated, “We told him we’re huge fans, we love his work, we’ve watched all his films. He replied, ‘Good, I’ll take some photos then – mazel tov!’”
Did you think you were safe from photobombs just because you were sleeping? Wrong! This is the kind of thing that your friends might have played on you during field trips. When you fall asleep on the bus, everyone will take their chance to take a photo with you while you get some zzzs. Even Justin Bieber could not help himself from doing this when he found this sleeping guy on the way to his concert!
We have no idea how it was possible for this couple to have zero clue that Dave Chapelle was sitting behind them when they were taking their engagement photos. They had been minding their business and enjoying their drinks when one of the most iconic comedy stars showed up to photobomb them! We are sure that this is one for the history books. Do you think he made some inappropriate jokes?
There must be a one in a million chance that you were shooting your wedding photos when Aquaman suddenly shows up right behind you. We have a lot of questions about this photo. Before anything else, was he filming the movie? If not, we have no idea what the actor would be doing taking a walk down a coast with a trident in hand. Maybe Jason Momoa really is the King of Atlantis. That sure explains things!
To be fair, we would also be photobombing random people posing with a different celebrity if we were a big star ourselves! Can you wager a guess as to what was happening here? Hugh Jackson must have been shooting an X-Men movie at the time since he had that Wolverine hair. These fans were taken to the set to meet a few of the stars. Even though they said that Patrick Stewart would not be around for photos, he decided to show up in the end.
Jimmy Fallon & Jon Hamm
There is not a single doubt in our minds that Jimmy Fallon is the sort of guy who likes photobombing regular folks. For some reason, the talk show host seems to have plenty of time on his hands! The most amazing thing about this photo was that he got to recruit actor Jon Hamm of Mad Men fame to photobomb folks atop this New York skyscraper. Do you think the family was happy about this?
Just in case you needed a reminder, the woman in this photo is none other than fashion model Winnie Harlow. She might not be as ordinary as the other people on the list, but it still counts! After all, the guy who decided to photobomb her is even more famous than she is. Prince Harry has a bad boy reputation as far as royal standards go. We think it is very in character for him to pull make such a face from afar!
We all know that Tom Hanks is famous for the love and time he gives his fans. However, there was a time when this fan did not even remember that he got to spend some time with his hero! The actor must have been excited to spend some time with such a huge fan. When he got to the bar, the Forrest Gump star was shocked to see that his supporter was already blackout drunk. There was no way that he was going to leave without leaving a memento on the poor guy’s phone, however.
There are millions of people out there who pretty much worship the Beatles. Can you imagine what it must have been like for these two Beatles fans to notice that the guy who rode past their photoshoot was none other than Paul McCartney? It is a sign from the rock gods! This was the guy who used to make great music with Ringo Starr, George Harrison, and John Lennon. He had no problems stopping his bike to pose for a photo with these newlyweds either.
Chris Pratt & Chris Evans
We do not know what could possibly be better than getting photobombed by a Marvel star. Well, two is always better than one! This time, Jimmy Fallon was able to recruit Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, who play Captain America and Star-Lord respectively for his photobombing mission. The couple clearly had no clue what that day had in store for them. You should check out the comedian’s YouTube page if you want to watch the video footage of the fiasco!
It looks like there are three generations of Wil Wheaton supporters here. The first ones would be those who recognize him for his work on Stand By Me. The next generation would be those who remember him from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Lastly, we have those who know him for his stint in The Big Bang Theory. In this photo, you can see the actor photobombing Felicia Day, his co-host on Eureka. She had been posing for a photo with a fan at the time!
Kim Kardashian And Kanye West
The woman in the photo and her baby had no idea that a very famous power couple was sitting behind them. We are talking about none other than Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, of course! What makes it so fascinating is that the celebs had no idea they were included in a random photograph. We daresay that the person who took the photo has the potential to make it big as paparazzi. This is such a great shot!
This guy brought his child out of town for the weekend when they suddenly bumped into Ferris Bueller or Matthew Broderick himself! They were starstruck and asked the actor for a photo. The star decided to oblige the request. The man and his daughter had no clue that there was one more celebrity who was in that frame. It was none other than Jerry Seinfeld! The dad only realized it when they were in the car.
Let us not deny the fact that Ken Jeong had been hilarious when he played Leslie Chow in the Hangover films. However, it has been a double-edged sword for him! Even though he gets a lot of work, most moviegoers will forever recognize him for the role he played. This must be the reason why he tries to photobomb strangers even before they make their way over to interact with him.
Can you imagine bumping into a celebrity and then getting the chance to pose for a photo with them? What will you do if there happened to be another celebrity passing by at that exact moment? This star took it upon themselves to photobomb the young lady who was taking a photo with Ty Burrell! She was so thrilled about seeing the Modern Family star that she failed to notice Bryan Cranston!
If you ever take a tour around the headquarters of Microsoft, there exists a possibility that you will run into the founder of the company himself. This guy might have had a close encounter, but he never did get to meet Bill Gates. It was only after whipping out his phone to check out his photos that he noticed that Bill Gates just photobombed him. This makes for a truly epic story, at any rate.
He might be known for playing serious characters, but we can see that Jake Gyllenhaal is also one goofy guy. When the cute group of girls decided to document their day, they did not know that such a huge celebrity would be included in their photo! How awesome was that? He did not only land a great photobomb in the selfie, but he also did it by pulling off such an insane expression. Never change, Jake.
Michael Cera is one down to earth guy, but we do not think that this should come as a huge surprise. The actor became famous after starring in projects such as Superbad and Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. He plays a rather specific sort of character, the type who would walk into the background of another person’s selfie. Let us just say that this is a great example of life imitating art. Cera had innocently peeked into the girl’s camera and decided to wave hello anyway.
A celebrity photobomber is often the sort of person who has always been known to do cheeky stuff. It is someone who has a mischievous side that they are not afraid to let out every now and then. That is the reason it is shocking to see Queen Elizabeth II do the same thing that the other people on the list have. The two athletes in the photo could not believe what they were looking at after seeing this photo!
If you were ever into the music of the ‘80s, perhaps you are familiar with a classic rock band known as Guns ‘N’ Roses. Considering how popular their songs are, it truly makes sense that some senior citizens continue to hold them dear to their hearts. This photo shows a woman wearing a Slash t-shirt who just missed her favorite rock legend. She had not a single clue that this rock legend was walking just behind her!
When this comedian had been pregnant, she just felt happy to go out of the house and take a walk in the park every now and then. One fateful day, she spotted a couple and figured out what was going on. The lovebirds had been taking their engagement photos. Amy Schumer felt excited by this and then walked up to them. The photographer simply went with it and snapped away. No matter what happens, we are sure that she gave the future newlyweds something they will never forget!
Ellie Goulding was clearly delighted to have a moment with Raynald Aeschlimann during the Omega anniversary party. She did not have a single clue that there was a person in the background who pretty much ruined a great photo of her and the CEO. George Clooney did not understand boundaries, particularly when we are talking about other celebrities snapping photos he was not meant to join.
We have to admit that we do not know the context behind the photo. What we do know is that Taylor Swift is speaking to Ryan Seacrest, and Jennifer Lawrence was not pleased about it. She clearly thinks that she deserves to talk instead. Just so you know, this was not the only time that the musician has been interrupted in the middle of speaking. We all know what happened at the Video Music Awards!
Kiernan Shipka and January Jones must have good memories of working with each other on the set of Mad Men. Their relationship with Jon Hamm’s character was complex, but they did enjoy working with the actor over the years. Let us just call this a family reunion of sorts. However, we do not know if Jones and Shipka had been aware that this was what it was. Look at Hamm in the background!
Whoa, who gave Benedict Cumberbatch the permission to photobomb such an iconic rock band? Edge, Bono, and the other U2 members were thrilled to take a groupie with their loved ones on the red carpet. They had no idea that the Doctor Strange actor was hiding behind them and ready to pounce. This is not all that surprising since the actor actually has a reputation for photobombing his fellow celebrities!
Neil Flynn & Eric Stonestreet
This is a clash of the titans, no doubt about it. We cannot deny that Neil Flynn served as the unsung hero of the medical TV show Scrubs by playing our beloved janitor. Eric Stonestreet, meanwhile, made it big in the scene by appearing in the hit sitcom Modern Family. In the photo below, Eric was thrilled to smile for a photo with a fan during a baseball game. He had no clue that Neil Flynn was actually there!
Consider yourself very lucky if you ever run into Nicolas Cage in the grocery store of all places. Sadly for the young mother here, she did not see that this Con Air star was right behind her. At the time, she just wanted a photo taken with her husband and her baby! In all fairness, the dad was clearly in on it. We are impressed that he was able to keep his cool when the actor came in for a photobomb.
We are sure that just about anyone out there will recognize Robert Pattinson of Twilight saga fame. He played Edward Cullen and stole the hearts of many young girls. We only hope that the three people in the photo did not look down after it was taken. It is bad enough to look at the photo afterward and realize that this iconic Hollywood vampire is hiding beneath their legs! Talk about creepy.
Anyone who has been paying attention to music in the past decade will know that Adele has come a long way over the years. She has won many awards and warmed the hearts of many people around the world. What people do not realize about the singer is that she has a great sense of humor and photobombs fans every now and then!
We do not really know who these people are. They were taking an innocent photo at the time. Clearly, Ed Sheeran might just be the one and only person who can lighten the mood like this. The musician is the person behind hit songs like “Shape of You,” “Galway Girl,” and “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You.” He seems to enjoy ruining photos and doing everything he could to have his face in the frame.
We have Nic Cage yet again! Clearly, this is one actor who actually gets a kick out of photobombing other people. When this customer walked to the restaurant bathroom, his girlfriend decided to snap a photo of them. He did not know why she would do such a thing then and there. It was only after looking at the photo that he realized he had been standing right next to Nicolas Cage at the time!
A large group from China came all together to visit the lovely city of Paris. Too bad right before getting an amazing photo with the Eiffel tower, Arnold Schwarzenegger rode up on his bike and ruined the picture.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Part 2
It seems this celebrity can’t escape the spotlight! Arnold was simply riding his bike to work when a fan snapped a selfie with the Terminator actor. He doesn’t look too fazed by the whole thing, he actually looks rather humored!
This young woman’s mom is a huge Bill Murray fan- it only makes sense the two posed for a shot. Bill seems to have forgotten to look into the camera lens…he seems quite distracted by something else! Her father in the back doesn’t look too thrilled.
Actress Angelina Jolie posed for the camera at an awards show. This shot isn’t anything special, except for Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman photobombing in the back. It seems the actress didn’t have a clue!
Emma Stone & James Corden
Emma Stone and James Corden decided it would be funny to team up on some friends and deliver an epic photobomb. We have a feeling James Corden wasn’t aware of Emma’s intentions when the photographer snapped the camera!
All Tom Hanks wanted was a nice selfie with some friends- too bad a fan had to disturb them and ruin the photo. Tom’s face seems to say, “Ugh, we almost had the perfect picture!”
Bill Murray loves photobombing engagement photos. Why, do you ask? We have no idea! Whatever the reason, this couple doesn’t seem to mind one bit! At least they’ll have some good memories to share with their future kids.
Prince Harry wasn’t enjoying the game too much and therefore decided to have some fun. He saw the perfect opportunity to photobomb an otherwise great photo. These guys had no idea who decided to join in on their snapshot!
Kevin Spacey was simply enjoying a morning run in Boston when he saw the perfect opportunity to photobomb a tourist. He supposedly yelled out “photobomb!” before continuing his jog. We can’t imagine how excited and surprised she was!
Cole Sprouse & Lili Reinhart
Famous stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart were attending an awards show when a photographer decided to document the moment. Another celebrity made the most of the moment by photobombing the two with a rather scary facial expression.
Michael Cera Part 2
Michael Cera seems to love photobombing fans! We can’t tell if this one was intentional or not, but we do know one thing for sure…it’s hilarious! Who thinks the guy on the right knew beforehand?
Imagine dining out with your bestie and turning around to see John Mayer sitting in the booth behind you! Why not get a photo with him casually eating his pancakes in the back? How polite of him to look up and smile for the camera.
Megan Fox was desperately trying to escape the paparazzi when she was met with a yellow rose from a fan. This photographer should win some sort of award for his timing.
Jennifer Lawrence decided that a group shot wasn’t complete without a funny face. Most of her colleagues look amused, everyone except for the man on the left that is. Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed!
