The Art of the Photobomb: When Hollywood Stars Are More Like Us Than We May Think

With all the hullabaloo of Hollywood, it’s hard to remember that celebrities are human, just like us. They pay bills, take their kids to school, and run errands, just like us. They also like to photobomb people’s photos, just like us.

As childish as some may think photobombing is, it’s actually an art. And you can even say there’s a science to it. Featuring yourself in someone else’s photo takes precision and skill. And a good sense of humor, no less. Let’s take a look at some the funnier and more epic celebrity photobombs to ever grace the internet.

Jerry Seinfeld

A man was on a weekend trip with his daughter when he ran into Ferris Bueller himself. Well, technically, they bumped into Matthew Broderick, the actor who played him… but who’s counting? Either way, the starstruck fan asked the actor if he would please take a picture with his little girl. Broderick couldn’t resist and posed for the picture.

He was so distracted by the actor that he didn’t realize there was another huge celebrity standing right next to him. When the father-daughter duo got into the car, they looked at the background, only to see Jerry Seinfeld standing right there. He was shocked that he didn’t recognize him at first.

Bruce Springsteen

So technically, this doesn’t exactly qualify as a photobomb. I mean, the person taking the picture is fully aware that a celebrity is in the background. It’s pretty obvious that she intended to get the artist in the photo. But still, how awesome would it be to have your favorite musician intentionally be in your selfie?

That’s exactly what happened at this Bruce Springsteen concert. The girl was just hoping to catch the singer in the background, but instead, you can see him posing and pointing directly at her camera. He definitely put a smile on her face and gave this girl a night to remember! I bet she was excited to share this photo with all her friends.

The Rock

It’s not every day when you’re casually walking down the street, and suddenly, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson passes by and photobombs your selfie. Well, this guy got pretty lucky. He couldn’t believe he captured this shot at the perfect moment. And to top it all off, Johnson’s face is priceless.

Plus, the wrestler-turned-Hollywood-superstar even posed for the selfie on his way to the gym. The incredible actor always makes sure to make his fans feel special and let them know how much he appreciates them, and this is a perfect example. Many celebs would try and steer clear of the camera, but not The Rock! He knows a simple smile has the power to change somebody’s day.

John Krasinski

It’s incredible to see the path that John Krasinki’s career has taken. He started off as a comedian and a beloved character on the hit sitcom, The Office. Since then, the actor directed his very own blockbuster, A Quiet Place, and tied the knot with Hollywood actress, Emily Blunt. With his talent and accolades, this star certainly proved himself.

Despite his successful career in Hollywood, “Kras” still finds time every once in a while to visit his team – the Boston Red Sox. That’s when this happened! Fans saw this picture and appreciated him in a whole different way. No matter how impressive his resume is, this guy always makes time for the little things in life.

Jason Segel

Jason Segel is a comedic actor, which is why it’s not surprising that he is a funny guy in real life. Here is one hilarious example. Even though we haven’t seen much of him in the last couple of years, it’s clear that Segel is one of the most charming and talented actors in the industry for the last 15 years.

Believe it or not, the guy who portrayed Marshall Eriksen in the hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother is a hopeless romantic. He can’t help himself but get in the way of a happy couple trying to take engagement photos. They clearly don’t mind. They look happy, and he made their special day even better.

Adam Sandler

Adam Sandler is known for his impressive acting chops and comedic timing. The actor has starred in countless movies constantly cracking up the audience. Well, movie watchers aren’t the only people Sandler makes laugh. He randomly made his way to this couple’s wedding picture session, and it was amazing.

He decided to pose with the happy couple, and you can tell he made their day. The smiles on their faces are priceless. The newlyweds spoke of the photobomb incident, saying, “We told him we’re huge fans, we love his work, we’ve watched all his films. He replied, ‘Good, I’ll take some photo then- Mazel tov!’” How sweet is that? I would love for Adam Sandler to crash my wedding photos.

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has one of the most recognizable faces in the world. Between his talent, antics, and good looks, this singer has certainly made a name for himself throughout his decades-long career. Well, here we can see that the Biebs has a playful side and photobombs people while they are sleeping.

This reminds me of middle school field trips; we would always try and catch pictures of the kids who fell asleep on the bus. And sometimes, we would get into a photo like this. When Bieber discovered this guy sleeping on the way to one of his concerts, he seized the opportunity and got this amazing picture! I’m sure this guy wishes he was awake for it, though.

Jason Momoa

What are the chances this would happen? Imagine taking wedding pictures by the water, and suddenly, Aquaman appears behind you. It seems pretty unlikely, right? This incredible pose raises some big questions. For starters, if Jason Momoa isn’t filming Aquaman, why would he be walking around water with a trident in his hand?

The only possible explanation is that Momoa is actually the King of Atlantis. If he’s not, then this entire picture is confusing. Why would he randomly be there? Either way, I guess it doesn’t really matter. The most important thing is that he made this happy couple’s day so much better. Let’s be real, who wouldn’t want this guy in the background of their wedding photos? I know I would…

Patrick Stewart

This is a perfect example of a celebrity attempting to photobomb a group of regular people posing for a picture with a different celebrity. I’m guessing Hugh Jackman was filming the X-Men movies – the Wolverine hairstyle gives it away. A few fans got the opportunity to come on set and meet some of their favorite stars.

At first, the excited fans were told that Patrick Stewart wasn’t available to take a picture. The fans were disappointed, but happy they at least got to hang out with Hugh Jackman for a second. As it turns out, Professor X made a last-minute appearance and photobombed their picture. Two celebs in one pic? Even better.

Tom Hanks

Throughout his long and impressive career, Tom Hanks has been known for giving his fans a lot of love and attention. He likes to show his appreciation to the people who support him every chance he gets. In this particular case, the guy in question doesn’t remember the moment he met his hero, but at least he has this picture as evidence.

The Forrest Gump star was looking forward to hanging out with one of his biggest fans. But once he got to the bar, the actor realized that his fan had already drunk way too much. He wasn’t going to leave without giving the fan a nice surprise to wake up to and decided to take this picture. After this guy sees what he missed, he’ll probably never drink again.

Paul McCartney

Some diehard Beatles fans take every lyric that the band has ever written as gospel. These newlyweds are definitely in that category of fans. When the happy couple noticed Paul McCartney riding by as they were taking their wedding pictures, they knew it was a sign straight from the rock gods.

The rock star, who used to play with John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, isn’t too busy to bring smiles to stranger’s faces. He was more than happy to stop and pose with the couple before continuing his bike ride. He took one minute out of his day to make the pair’s magical day even more special.

Ken Jeong

Ken Jeong will forever be remembered as Leslie Chow, his iconic breakout role in The Hangover movies. Thanks to his incredibly funny character and impressive acting abilities, Jeong seems to be getting work constantly. He has gotten extremely popular and has become one of the most sought out comedic characters in Hollywood.

That’s why everyone wants to snap a pic with this talented celebrity. Instead of letting the fame get to his head and forgetting the fans that supported him, he does the complete opposite. He doesn’t even wait for fans to ask for a picture before popping in the background. How fun to look at your selfie, and notice Ken Jeong in the background?

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal is a talented actor and one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. Throughout his career, Gyllenhaal has been known for taking on serious and dramatic roles. However, that doesn’t mean this heartthrob doesn’t have a goofy, silly side to him, and he has no problem showing off his positive energy.

You can see his fun-loving personality in this picture he photobombed. This group of ladies took a selfie together and later noticed that a familiar face joined in to make that picture that most epic selfies they had ever taken. Not only did he photobomb this picture, but the face he made makes the entire situation that much better.

Michael Cera

Despite his stardom, Michael Cera seems like a very normal and down to earth kind of guy. If his face wasn’t so recognizable, he would look like a regular man walking down the street. But thanks to his teen movies, including Superbad and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, we all know who he is.

Because of his general characteristics, Cera can easily blend into his surroundings. However, once you take a look at his face, you realize exactly who he is. This fan noticed who he was and quickly took out her phone to snap a photo. Instead of running away from strangers trying to take his picture, he smiled for it.

Slash

If you are interested in rock music or were on the planet in the 1980s, chances are you heard of the classic rock band, Guns ‘N’ Roses. With their popularity and so many hit singles, it only makes sense that some senior citizens hold the band near and dear to their hearts.

This lucky grandma had a wonderful day, bike riding, and wearing her T-shirt of her favorite guitar player of all time, Slash. What she didn’t know was that the rock legend was just a step or two behind her as her granddaughter was taking the picture. He saw a supportive fan and wanted to brighten up her day. He certainly did. Meryl was over the moon when she looked behind her and saw him.

Amy Schumer

When Amy Schumer was pregnant, she was so happy to get out every once in a while with a frolic through the park. Some sunshine and fresh air is always a nice refresher during a pregnancy. During one of her calming walks, she noticed a couple and knew exactly what was going on. They were taking engagement photos.

In order to make their special day even more memorable, Amy decided to pop in the frame and photobomb their picture. The photographer just went with it, and it wasn’t until the love birds turned around, that they realized Amy Schumer was in their photos. They definitely picked the right day to take engagement pictures at the park.

George Clooney

Ellie Goulding was at the Omega anniversary party when she got to a share a moment with Raynald Aeschlimann. Naturally, she took out her camera so she can get a photo with the Omega CEO. Ellie was so excited; she didn’t even notice that another famous face wanted a picture with her too. So he decided to photobomb it!

George Clooney is used to having everyone taking pictures with him. So when Ellie posed for a photo with Aeschlimann, Clooney decided to pop up in the background. Thankfully, Goulding’s picture turned out to be better than expected. I wouldn’t mind George Clooney photobombing my pictures. Plus, the face he is making is priceless.

Jon Hamm

January Jones and Kiernan Shipka made a lot of memories together working on the hit TV show Mad Men. On the show, Jon Hamm plays their father/husband… and let’s just say it was complicated. However, the actors have become a family throughout the series run and had a great time working together.

You can say that this occasion was a little reunion for the cast. The blond beauties snapped a picture to share with their fans, and look who was eerily lurking in the background. But would you have expected anything less? Jon Hamm showed us the funny side of his personality, and fans were there for it. Everyone loves a good family reunion.

Benedict Cumberbatch

I guess you can leave it to Benedict Cumberbatch to photobomb one of the most iconic bands of all time. Bono, Edge, and the rest of U2 were ready for a close up on the red carpet, surrounded by their loved ones. What they didn’t realize was that their picture was epically photobombed by the hunky British actor.

That’s right. They had no idea the famous actor who played memorable roles like Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Stephen was standing right behind them. They couldn’t have been disappointed with this hilarious result. As it turned out, Cumberbatch is notorious for photobombing celebrities; the red carpet is the perfect place for his hobby.

Neil Flynn & Eric Stonestreet

Neil Richard Flynn is a comedian who played some iconic roles throughout the years, including Janitor on Scrubs, and Mike Heck on the ABC comedy, The Middle. But he isn’t the only beloved sitcom actor. Eric Stonestreet came onto the scene with the popular show Modern Family. Talk about the Battle of the Sitcoms.

Just Kidding. These seemingly competitive actors are actually friends and have no problem joking around with each other. Here, you can see Eric happily posing for a picture with a fan at a baseball game. What he didn’t know was that Neil Flynn was in the background, ready to photobomb this picture. His straight face is hysterical, and the fan had no idea until later.

Nicolas Cage

It’s not every day that you go grocery shopping, and Nicolas Cage just happens to be there. This young mom was casually taking a picture with her husband and her baby and didn’t notice the famous actor pop in. The Con Air star was standing right behind them the whole time, and the woman had no idea.

To be fair, her husband did recognize the famous face and was in on it. As soon as Cage noticed he was taking a picture, he decided to wave to the camera. After this epic photobomb, the wife turned around and realized that there was a famous actor standing right behind her. This picture just proved that celebrities are just like the rest of us. They have to go grocery shopping too.

Robert Pattinson

If you were around during the last decade, you are most likely fully aware that Robert Pattinson was one of the stars of the Twilight movie saga, and was considered a Hollywood heartthrob at the time. He made teenage girls everywhere (including myself) melt. We just couldn’t get enough of this good looking actor.

Even though his character, Edward Cullen, was creepy, Pattinson was charming and attractive. What’s not to like? When these three friends got together for a picture, their biggest dreams came to life. Their favorite actor photobombed them in the best way ever. He just got on the floor and held onto their legs… which is kind of weird, but they don’t seem to mind.

Harry Styles

There was a time when every tween in America was swooning over the extremely popular boy band, One Direction. On a hot summer day, fans stood in line, waiting to get an autograph of one of the handsome band members. As you can see, the line is filled with girls, except for one.

The one and only Harry Styles stood in line with some of his fans, and of course, none of them really noticed. They are too nervous and excited to meet Harry that they didn’t even realize the man of the hour was standing right behind them. These girls must have felt pretty stupid as soon as they looked back at this photo. The singer photobombed their picture and their line!

Cheryl Cole

This picture is pretty hilarious. It’s tough to say if the passerby was shocked or disgusted to see English singer Cheryl Cole. That epic facial expression is hard to figure out. The only thing I can be certain about is that she didn’t make that face intentionally. Well, maybe she did. Technically I really wouldn’t know.

I mean, I guess it would be a nice way to have your picture go viral, but what do I know? It appears as though none of these ladies knew what was going on in this picture until looking back later. I think it’s safe to say that this is just an excited fan who got caught on camera at just the right moment. This is a celebrity encounter to remember.

Maisie Williams

Masie Williams made a name for herself after starring as Arya Stark in the hit HBO fantasy show, and arguably the most popular show in the world, Game of Thrones. As it turns out, whatever game this girl is playing, she’s winning at it. In addition to her acting chops, Williams is also known for her silly antics and sense of humor.

She wasn’t about to let this innocent boy take a selfie without popping in. She made a funny face during her sneak attack, and the boy didn’t even notice until later. As soon as he did realize that the incredibly talented Maisie Williams photobombed his photo, he shared it online. Unsurprisingly, the picture quickly went viral.

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is no stranger to cameras. Ever since his NCYNC* days, tween girls all over America wanted a picture with the musical stud. In this picture, a group of dudes was enjoying a Timberlake concert. Although they might not be his target audience, they were having a great time and wanted to take a selfie at the show.

The boys were dancing and snapped a picture with the stage behind them. They hoped they would maybe get a glimpse of the singer in the background, but what they got was even better. Not only did they catch Timberlake in the shot, but he photobombed their picture. He took a moment to point at the camera, giving these guys a concert to remember.

Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon is known for being a cast member on the long-running popular show, Saturday Night Live. On top of that, Fallon is a producer, writer, actor, and host of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (and before that, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon). Through the years, Fallon has become famous for bringing other Hollywood stars along for his crazy antics.

After having actress Cameron Diaz on his show, Jimmy decided to take her to the top of one of the world’s tallest buildings to take some pictures. No big deal, right? Well, the whole world got a good laugh out of this one when the two A-listers photobombed random people’s pictures! They definitely don’t seem to mind, though.

Amy Schumer

Third wheel much? For most people, there is nothing more memorable than your wedding day. You dream of this magical day your whole life, and when it finally comes, chances are you will never forget it. That is pretty much guaranteed for this couple. Not only did they tie the knot, but the one and only Amy Schumer showed up.

It was a beautiful summer wedding, and the comedian decided to pop by and photobomb their wedding photos. The bride looks incredibly surprised, and the groom looks like he has no clue that a famous comedian is standing right behind them. At the same time, the trio looks like they have known each other for years. What do you think?

Aubrey Plaza

When you first glance at this picture, it looks like a very confused Hugh Jackman. It kind of looks like a typical paparazzi picture, until you take a closer look. You’ll notice a certain someone, known as Aubrey Plaza in the background. Plaza is giving the actor her famous “death-stare,” and it’s pretty epic.

To be fair, I don’t think Aubrey intentionally photobombed this picture (which only makes the whole situation better). This picture is just a classic case of “right place right time.” The only reason why Aubrey was even there was that she went to grab a bite to eat with her fellow actor. It wasn’t until way after that she noticed that evil look she was giving Jackman.

Beyoncé

I have to be honest; this is one picture I will forever be jealous of. I mean, if you ask me, anyone who’s in a picture with Queen B is the one photobombing. This lucky fan was ecstatic to be in the presence of her idol when her parents bought her concert tickets for her birthday. She thought it couldn’t get any better than this.

If this wasn’t already the best day of life, her night just got better. She was snapping pictures at the show when the diva herself got into one of her selfies. She’s holding a mic, so obviously she is in the middle of a performance. But still, that didn’t stop her from taking a moment to show some love to a super fan!

Elton John

It’s no secret that Elton John has accomplished incredible things throughout his life, but this just might be one of my favorites. Believe it or not, that’s the British Legend himself sitting at the head of this table. You would think the musician spends his time at fancier restaurants, but he’s just hanging out like a regular person.

I wonder if this guy only noticed Elton Jon after the picture was taken, or if he purposely told someone to take the photo because he realized Elton Jon was there. I think it’s the latter; otherwise, there is no reason for this picture to be taken on such an award angle.

George Clooney

It’s always fun to see when co-stars love each other as much as we do. Despite his unimpressed facial expression, I’m sure this waiter was excited when Matt Damon agreed to take a picture with him. However, when he looked at the picture, later on, he realized that Matt Damon wasn’t the only famous face in this photo.

George Clooney is one of the most beloved actors, and he is notorious for photobombing other celebs. In fact, we’ve already seen him on this list. What makes this picture even better is that Damon is posing, pointing at the waiter. But because Clooney popped his head in, it looks like Damon is pointing at the photobomber.

Selena Gomez

Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks either, frightened, confused, or completely unaware that this photo is being taken. If you take a little bit of a closer look at the background, you can see a former-Disney star photobombing the picture. You barely notice her at first, but that’s Selena Gomez trying to get in there.

Selena Gomez is Instagram’s most-followed celebrity, but even she gets star struck every once in a while. It looks like she couldn’t stay away from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and who can blame her? I personally had a huge crush on the hunky actor since I saw him on 10 Things I Hate About You… back when I was in middle school!

Jared Leto

Any picture of Jennifer Lopez is automatically going to be above average. I mean, her flawless looks just don’t amount to us, average folks. As she’s standing there, looking glamourous, Jared Leto walked by, and the face he made is priceless. He was simply going to greet someone when he got into the beauty queen’s shot.

Source: Imgur

It’s really the contrast that makes this picture so funny. J.Lo looks fierce as always, and Leto is standing there with a hat and his tongue sticking out. Photobombers usually lurk in the background, but in this case, Leto walks right in front of the starlet. To be fair, I don’t think he noticed he was photobombing until he saw this picture online.

Nicole Kidman

At first glance, this picture would have fans starstruck. Meryl Streep and Russel Crowe in the same frame? That’s something we all didn’t know we wanted. The actors took a beautiful picture together, but what makes this whole thing even better, is Nicole Kidman creeping in the background.

Kidman looks like she is eying down the two award-winning actors. Do you think that the Australian actress even noticed that she was being photographed? Or is this just another case of “the right place at the right time?” Either way, that snarky face staring right between Streep and Crowe is priceless. I’m here for whatever is going on in this picture.

Shaquille O’Neal

This picture is perfect because it’s a photobomb inside of a photobomb. Tiffany Haddish and Erica Ash were posing for a picture together when Shaquille O’Neal decided it would be funny to photobomb. Well, Shaq made his way in the picture, but it didn’t stop there. Nick Kroll decided to chime in and photobomb all three of them.

It feels like it would be impossible to photobomb someone as big and tall as Shaq, but Kroll managed to pull it off. Instead of trying to jump behind the massive basketball player, the comedian snuck in from the side. The way his face is looking at the camera proves that he knew exactly what he was doing. That’s a photobomb face if I’ve ever seen one!

Dwayne Johnson

As you can tell, this picture was taken at a Christmas party. As everybody was getting ready to open presents, they gathered around for a festive picture. It looks like a fun party as it is, but there was one very special guest, the extremely talented Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.

If there is one person to spice up a party, it’s the Rock. And what’s the fun of having him at your party if he doesn’t photobomb a couple of pictures? Well, this one is great. He just popped into this picture with a ginormous smile on his face. Needless to say, these women were more than pleased when they looked through their pictures later.

Wiz Khalifa

Have you ever thought about the strangers and random people that showed up in your family photos? These people can be anywhere in the world, but somehow, they became part of your family memories because they were captured in your pictures. As it turns out, this family has a famous face snapped into their family memories forever.

As this family was enjoying their vacation, they decided to take an unforgettable picture. And it was certainly unforgettable. The man in the background is Wiz Khalifa. I personally think the family was well aware that the singer was sitting right behind them. That’s why they wanted to take the picture in the first place.

Kevin Spacey

Most of the time, it can be really awkward taking photos in front of monuments. One the one hand, you want a memory from the experience. On the other hand, you’re standing there uncomfortably waiting for someone to take the picture, as passer buyers are staring at you. Thanks to one special guy, this girl’s photo was just a little less awkward.

Kevin Space walked by and saw this woman waiting for someone to take her picture. That’s when he thought it would be a great photobombing opportunity. You can see the surprise in her face; she was in shock that the actor stopped to take a picture with her. This picture is certainly monumental, but not because of the statue.

Ed Sheeran

I’m not really sure who these guys are. They seem like three men taking a perfectly innocent picture together. However, if there is one person who can brighten up the mood, it’s the talented British singer, Ed Sheeran. The celebrity is recording music and performing at concerts, but always makes time to photobomb a group of fans.

Despite his busy schedule, Sheeran will photobomb the people who have been supporting him as a way of showing gratitude. There is nothing like having Ed Sheeran pop into the background of your picture. That’s a dream for me, and even these guys weren’t disappointed. After sharing this moment on social media, the photo went viral.

Nicolas Cage

On this list of photobombers, we only saw a few celebrities appear more than once. If you are caught in the background of more than one, you simply like to intrude into other people’s photos… which is totally okay. To each their own. This guy got up to go to the bathroom, and then his girlfriend stopped him and told him to smile for the camera.

Why she wanted to take a picture of him walking to the bathroom was beyond him. You can tell how confused he is just based on his facial expression. Eventually, his girlfriend showed him the picture, and he realized he was standing next to Nicolas Cage. The actor just looks so casual.

Jimmy Fallon & Jon Hamm

We all know that Jimmy Fallon loves getting a kick out of photobombing regular people’s pictures. As a guy who hosts his own celebrity talk show, Fallon seems to have a lot of time on his hands. You know, to just go around photobombing ordinary people. But sometimes, he brings another famous face along for the ride.

You’ll notice that the talk show host managed to recruit Mad Men star Jon Hamm to join him on his photobombing spree. In this picture, Fallon and Hamm went on a photobomb spree on top of a New York skyscraper. They had a great time; this lucky family was just one of their many victims. As long as they are having fun and making fans happy.

Chris Pratt & Chris Evans

The only thing better than being photobombed by one star from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is being photobombed by two stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe! That’s right, folks! On another one of his photobomb days, the talk show hosts recruited both Chis Evans and Chris Pratt to join him.

Captain America and Star-Lord couldn’t be more excited to spend their day photobombing fans with Jimmy Fallon. I mean, just look at their faces. They look like they are having so much fun. This couple had no idea what was in store for them. If you’re interested in the video footage of this entire fiasco, you can fund it Fallon’s YouTube page.

I can’t truly believe that this couple wasn’t aware that the God of Thunder was also hanging out the pool. They may be posing for an innocent photo, but they’re probably crossing their fingers that he ends up in the shot. And hey, whaddayaknow…

Julia Roberts and Javier, A-list celebrities, got photobombed by the Hoff himself. His choice of method is daring, to say the least. This one wasn’t behind them in a sneaky way. He went right up and in front of them to make a full out statement.

If there’s a manifestation of karma, this is it. Well not really; karma is way more complicated than that. but anyways, now it’s Jesse’s turn to be photobombed. And leave it to Zooey Deschanel to keep it classic with bunny ears.

You know, sometimes I wonder if celebrities go outside for a smoke during the commercial breaks of the Oscars. And when I say “smoke,” I’m not only restricting it to cigarettes. Why do I say this? Because look at Jennifer Aniston’s face. Yeah.

Not only is Rihanna the Queen of cool, but she proved that she could be funny, too. While Saget was taking a selfie of himself and his fellow ‘Full House’ cast members, Rihanna rushed in to play a part in the game. I’m really curious to know if she even watched an episode of ‘Full House’ in her life.

This was when Emma and Andrew were dating. They noticed someone was stealthily taking a photo of them, so they went along with it and photobombed their own picture. I think most people just think celebs have no time for the normal people of this world. But surprisingly, they are usually willing to play along.

I have to admit that I’ve never seen these guys’ faces in my life. But apparently, they’re the boys in the popular boy band One Dimension. And as popular and famous as they may be, it looks like they’re star struck by Katy taking a fan photo of them.

Poor thing. She was hungry! All she wanted was to munch on some fries before the show started up again at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013. Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, and Rita Ora were saying cheese for a group photo, and Iggy accidentally photobombed them. This is one of the sadder ones on the list.

Cara Delevingne, the supermodel, just can’t resist a good old photobomb when she sees one. And when she saw actress Sienna Miller about to take a selfie, she did what she had to do. But why does Miller not seem to show any expression of awareness? Maybe that’s her good acting skills at play.

I gotta admit, I wouldn’t expect to see Kelly Clarkson, of all the celebrities, to be at the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama. Bill Clinton, on the other hand, makes perfect sense. But an American Idol star? Who knew?

Daniel Craig’s Mustache

If there’s anything creepier than Daniel Craig’s mustache, it’s his stare behind a pre-uber famous Taylor Swift and her friend. This photo, by the way, is the typical selfie at a club shot. It’s who’s in the photo that makes it epic.

Now Kelly Clarkson Is the Photobomber

It’s kind of sweet that celebrities get starstruck by fellow celebrities. It reminds us that they’re human like the rest of us. Kelly was loving this moment sitting behind Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi. It’s funny, though, because Kelly has been a guest on Ellen’s show.

Aaron Paul at Coachella

I think people buy tickets to Coachella more for the celebrities that they’re going to see than the actual musical acts. Take this couple, for instance, who knew they would be seeing someone famous. But they didn’t know it would be Jesse from ‘Breaking Bad.’

‘Modern Family’s’ Jesse Tyler Ferguson is another celebrity who’s a huge fan of the art of the photobomb, with plenty of experience. It’s the actor’s theatrical way of doing it that grabs everyone’s attention. Jesse couldn’t resist throwing himself into an otherwise lovely photo op of Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr on the red carpet.

There’s nothing like sibling love, huh? It’s always fun when one sibling is trying to take a photo of their date only to be ruined by a brother or sister. I don’t think Nick or Demi had any idea. They found out later, though.

A Much Younger Justin Bieber

Why does Russell Brand always have a “deer caught in the headlights” kind of stare? I doubt he even knows that Biebs is lurking behind him and Katy Perry. What I do find refreshing about this photo, though, is that it’s nice to see that Justin Bieber actually has a sense of humor.
