We live in a world where people are constantly taking photos of their brunch, spamming Instagram with their (arguably very adorable) pictures of their dogs, and taking selfies out in the wild. And while many of these photos are perfect in every way, there's nothing better than a funny photobomb. Something or someone in the back of a photo can turn it from boring to iconic in seconds - especially when celebrities are involved. These A-listers unintentionally stole the limelight on an ordinary day out, and the results are too good not to share with the internet.
Hanging Out With the Queen
The late Queen Elizabeth II was known for being a fearless and strong monarch - but she wasn't exactly known for smiling! Most of the photos we saw of her were stern and serious, which makes this celebrity photobomb even more impressive. In fact, we think this is the happiest photo we've ever seen of her, and she wasn't even meant to be in the photo in the first place!
These young hockey players were just trying to take a photo of themselves during a game in Glasgow, but they scored an even bigger goal when old Lizzie got involved.
Smile and Wave, Nicolas Cage
It's easy to assume that celebrities live lavish lifestyles and spend their days playing pickleball and shopping on Rodeo Drive. But there are many celebs who also run their own errands - and it seems Nicolas Cage is one of them. Just like the rest of us, this actor heads to the grocery store to stock up his refrigerator. And this woman just so happened to be photobombed by him!
It's not every day you get photobombed by a legend like Nic, and we bet this baby will grow up hearing stories of the day its mom met an icon in the flesh!
Saul Hudson AKA Slash Photobombs an Unsuspecting Super-Fan
Is this the best celebrity photobomb you've ever seen, or what? To all the people who don't know who the guy in the back is, well, that's Saul Hudson - also known as Slash! This musician has fans across the world, including this older woman walking alongside her bicycle. On this day, she decided to showcase her love for the musician without realizing that her photo was being photobombed by the man himself.
This is some Slash-ception if we've ever seen it, and we really hope she was introduced to the main man himself when this photo was taken. We bet she would have been fangirling so hard.
"I'll Be Back... For My Photobomb," Said Arnold Schwarzenegger
We're used to seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger either shooting down the enemy in the Terminator franchise or standing in front of a podium during political rallies. But we guess even the Governator needs to take a break every so often - which is why he decided to go for a cycle around the beautiful city of Paris. And he just so happened to ride past this giant tour group in the process!
What happened next was a celebrity photobomb of epic proportions, and judging by the looks of some of the group's faces, they were pretty overwhelmed to see Arnie cycling in front of them.
Jake Gyllenhaal Creeping in the Back
Have you ever taken a photo without realizing what or who was in the background? Well, these people had no idea that when they took their selfie, the one and only Jake Gyllenhaal was sitting right behind them! Yes, this celebrity photobomb was unplanned and accidental, making us love it even more. Plus, Jake still looks ridiculously handsome for being caught off guard while eating in a restaurant!
He's looking straight at the camera with a knowing look in his eye. Although these people didn't know they were taking a picture of him, he knew they were taking a picture of him.
Liam Neeson Will Will Find You... And Eat the Sandwich
Liam Neeson is known for being a tough Hollywood action man, but everyone needs to take a break from searching for their kidnapped daughter, right?! So, that's exactly what Liam did when he stumbled across the Big Star Sandwich Company. And it was a pretty good day for him that day, too. As soon as the staff saw him, they knew they couldn't let the Hollywood actor pay for his food.
We bet this sandwich shop is inundated with customers now! After all, our life goal is now to find the shop where Liam Neeson completed the best celebrity photobomb of all time.
The Man, the Myth, the Legend Himself: Bill Gates
We're going to assume that this guy is big into his technology. Why else would he be getting a tour of the Microsoft offices? Because of this, he's probably a huge fan of the tech wizard Bill Gates - and we really don't blame him! But what we love about this whole situation is that his idol is standing right behind him, and he had absolutely no idea that was the case when this photo was being taken.
This celebrity photobomb is so wholesome, and we bet this guy couldn't quite contain his excitement when he looked back at the photo and realized what had happened to him.
Dining With Reality Royalty Kim Kardashian and Her Ex Kanye
There was once a time when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were the "it" couple in Hollywood. Paparazzi clamored to snap a picture of the happy couple, but it seemed as though this woman managed to snap a picture of them without even trying. She was simply trying to take a photograph of herself with her baby when she was photobombed by the reality star and the rapper in a restaurant.
Of course, there is a chance that this was all a ruse to capture the couple. This woman might have known exactly what she was doing when she was snapping this sneaky picture!
Hey, Jonah Hill
If you met a celebrity in the wild, how would you react? Would you ask for their autograph? Would you ask them about your favorite movie of theirs? Or maybe ask for a selfie? When this woman spotted Jimmy Fallon, she knew that she wanted to get a photo with her talk show idol. But what she didn't bargain for was that she would also be photobombed by another big name in the world of Hollywood! Yes, that's Jonah Hill!
This photo proves that things really do work out in this world, even when you're not looking for it. This is one of the coolest celebrity photobombs we've ever seen.
The Rock Keeping It Real
Is there anything Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can't do? He's a former pro wrestler, he's an actor, he's a singer, and he's even a businessman and a father! But it seems as though he can also add another title to his resume, as this picture is proof that he can also take part in funny photobombs. Yes, just look at this one! This photobomb is what dreams are made of.
Our hope is to be just like this average Joe, who one day walked down the street and stumbled across the legend himself. And, of course, he had to take a photo to celebrate the occasion.
Zach Braff Says "I Do"
For most couples, the idea of having a celebrity wander into the back of their wedding photoshoot is just a pipe dream. But it was these guys' lucky day when Scrubs actor Zach Braff walked casually into their shot! And we bet they were pretty happy with the celebrity photobomb - even if the end result wasn't quite as romantic as they had planned it to be. Zach looks pretty happy, too!
Of course, if you're taking photographs in the middle of an NYC street, you have to anticipate being photobombed by someone. And as so many celebs live in the Big Apple, this was bound to happen.
Ken Jeong Loves Baseball
Ken Jeong is one of those celebrities that can do everything. Of course, we all know him as a comedian and actor - but did you know that he was a doctor before making his way into the world of fame and fortune? As if that wasn't enough, it seems as though this guy is also a world-class photobomber, too! He proved this when he made his way to a Dodgers game.
When he spotted these two women taking a selfie with each other, he just knew that he had to step in. What happened next created a funny photobomb that took the internet by storm.
Steven Tyler Don't Wanna Miss a Photobomb
Rockstars are arguably more approachable than regular celebrities. And Steven Tyler definitely seems like the kind of dude who would give his autograph or pose for a photo with fans! But when Tyler isn't rocking out on stage or hanging out with fans, he's running errands like the rest of us. And this woman just so happened to be photobombed by the man himself in a grocery store parking lot.
We can't help but wonder what Tyler was picking out from Paradise Cove, so we'll just have to stare at this funny celebrity photobomb until we've figured it out! We've got all day.
Loveable Mr. Hanks
You'll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't love Tom Hanks. This actor is a Hollywood sweetheart, and he's proven to his fans that he's a pretty normal guy who just so happens to have an extraordinary talent. And if you don't believe us, just look at this funny photobomb! When Tom saw this guy in a diner, he knew that he needed to photobomb the situation. And this hilarious photo is the result.
In all seriousness, we hope this guy was ok especially as he missed the chance to meet one of the greatest men in Hollywood because he drank too much and fell asleep on his pizza!
A Selfie With Royalty
When it comes to Princes William and Harry, Harry has always been considered the funny and lighthearted one. But it seems as though Prince William has a playful side to him, too! He proved this when he decided to photobomb this selfie. And while he didn't exactly get his pose on point before the kids pressed the clicker, they still got a good shot of him. Not many average Joes can say that.
As you can see from these boys' faces, they're pretty proud of their achievements. They can now say they've been photobombed by the future King - and that achievement should have a worthy place on their resumes!
When Beyonce and Jay-Z Walk by During Your Hotel Hallway Photo-Op
Let's be honest; this lady is all of us if we ever had the privilege of walking past celebrity royalty. We bet she couldn't believe her eyes when she just so happened to pass Beyonce and Jay-Z in the hotel corridor, and we really don't blame her. It's not every day you get to breathe the same air as these two superstars, as they're notoriously private and tend to keep themselves to themselves.
If we were this lady, though, we'd probably have a few tears running down our eyes if we were in the same photograph as Bey and her husband. That's goals right there.
Bryan Cranston Didn't Wanna Be Left Out
Fans of Modern Family will know that Ty Burrell is the ultimate TV dad. So, we really don't blame this woman for stopping him in the mall and asking for a photo! Ty was more than happy to oblige, but what he forgot to mention was that he wasn't shopping solo. He was actually wandering around the mall with his good friend Bryan Cranston - and Bryan obviously didn't want to be left out.
So, Bryan decided to photobomb the whole thing, and he looks pretty proud of himself, too. The dog definitely doesn't seem to share the same excitement as these three, though.
Spotted: Michael Cera in the Back
People love Michael Cera because he's a normal guy. He's awkward, funny, and can fade into the background. That's exactly what happened in this restaurant, and this celebrity photobomb proves it! When this guy at the front was busy hanging out with these parrots, Michael Cera decided to photobomb the whole thing with his cheesy and infectious grin. It looks as though the parrot on the left spotted him, though.
Looking back at this photo, we bet this guy will be pretty happy. And not just because he had the chance to hold two adorable parrots in his hands.
Jason Momoa's Aquaman Mode: Activated
Sure, we know that Jason Momoa is a real person with a real life outside of his characters, but he'll always be Khal Drogo and Aquaman to us! And we have a feeling that he'll always be Aquaman to these newlyweds, too. After all, it's not every day that your Hawaiian beach wedding is photobombed by a Hollywood superstar. And to make matters even cooler, a kid at the wedding had a toy trident he could borrow for the occasion!
While we're sure that this couple got countless beautiful photos of their wedding, this must be the coolest one of the bunch, right? This would be going straight on our wall.
Posing With Bruce Springsteen
If you've ever been to a concert, you'll know how difficult it is to get a clear shot of the person you're watching perform. After all, most of the time, you can only see a sea of cell phones in front of you, and the artist looks like a tiny speck on a far-away stage. But this woman got lucky with her tickets to a Bruce Springsteen concert. Not only was she super close to the stage, but she was even photobombed by Bruce!
Although she just wanted a regular selfie with the stage in the background, she got way more than she anticipated when Bruce stopped and posed for the camera. What a photo!
Michael Cera Is Just Your Average Guy
One of the things we love about Michael Cera is that most people don't realize they're looking at Michael Cera until they get up close. Because of this, he's photobombed so many photos over the years - including this one! This random stranger had no idea who he was when she started taking this selfie, but when she looked closer at the picture, she realized that she'd struck celebrity gold with this one.
Thankfully, Michael seems pretty used to people being caught off-guard by him, which is why he even smiled for the occasion. And how can you not love this average guy with a not-so-average job in the limelight?
Off to See the Wiz (Khalifa)
Some of the best photobombs are the ones where normal people don't realize they're in the presence of celebrity royalty. And we think it's fair to say that this group of people had no idea they were being photobombed by rapper Wiz Khalifa when they asked a waiter to take this family photo of them all! They look none the wiser, despite the fact that he's one of the biggest rappers of all time.
Wiz obviously didn't mind being in the background of this family photo, but his friend doesn't look too pleased. He looks like he's trying his hardest to find the nearest exit!
Peter Dinklage Always Stealing the Show
Peter Dinklage rose to fame when he appeared in the hit TV show Game of Thrones. But we all know that in the Game of Thrones, you either win or die, right? Well, it's pretty obvious that this guy definitely won when Peter photobombed his photo at the premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past in New York City. In fact, Peter even went into the fan-only barricaded area to meet this guy.
Although Peter looks pretty serious in this celebrity photobomb, the guy next to him looks as though he can't believe this is his life. And we'd probably be just as shocked, too!
Double Trouble With Nicolas Cage and Deadmau5
What you might not realize about this celebrity photobomb is the fact that there are actually two celebrities in this picture! Of course, everyone knows Nicolas Cage on the right, but what about the guy on the left? Well, that's not just some random hipster with thick-rimmed glasses and chino pants. That's actually the famous musician Deadmau5, who is known for wearing a giant mouse head during his DJ sets. And we had no idea these two were friends!
Whether they were eating together or whether they just happened to be in the same place at the same time, this funny photobomb is what celebrity dreams are made of.
Matt Garza Hit a Photobomb Homerun
There's nothing quite like watching live sports, right? While most people go just to watch the game in action, there are others who go in the hope of spotting their favorite players in the flesh. But this woman definitely got more than she paid for when her baseball selfie was photobombed by professional baseball player Matt Garza. And who needs to ask for an autograph when you have a photobomb like this?
Even if the Milwaukee Brewers didn't win this game, we bet this lady went home feeling like she'd won the league. Just look at the smiles on both of their faces!
Glad Bill Murray Crashed the Wedding
Bill Murray may be one of the most famous actors of all time, but he seems to make a habit of crashing people's events and taking part in funny photobombs. And if you need any more proof of that, just look at this picture! Although we're not sure what event this is, it looks as though it could be a wedding. And at least Bill decided to dress up for the occasion.
With this lady on his arm, he definitely looks like the cat that got the cream - and she looks pretty pleased to have a Hollywood icon next to her, too!
Rihanna Said He Can't Stand Under Her Umbrella
Rihanna lives a relatively private life, despite her superstar status. This makes her even more enticing, as fans try as hard as possible to see her in the flesh. This guy got that chance, but judging by the singer's face, she definitely didn't want this guy to stand under her umbrella! She looks as though she'd rather be anywhere else but there, despite this being a super funny celebrity photobomb.
At least this guy looks happy to be standing next to a legend, though. The smile on his face says it all, and we bet he has this funny photobomb framed on his wall!
Celebs Fan-Girl Too
It's easy to assume that celebrities meet other celebrities as though it's no big deal. It's just another day in the life of the rich and famous, right? But we guess that's not entirely true - and actress Sophie Turner has proved it. When she realized that Ryan Gosling was photobombing her photo, she couldn't quite believe her eyes. After all, Ryan is a legend. And not to mention the fact that he's also one of the hunkiest men in Hollywood.
Judging by the look on her face, Sophie can't quite believe that her celebrity photobomb involves her acting idol. She probably even has this framed on the wall of her mansion!
Ain't Nothing but a Photobomb by Justin Timberlake
It's not uncommon for people at concerts to take photos. In fact, everyone gets their phones out when they see their favorite artist make their way onto the stage. And while these photos are normally quite generic, these boys landed the photobomb jackpot when Justin Timberlake posed for their photograph just as they pressed the clicker. And if you ask us, this is a brand new boyband in the making!
The guy on the left basically sums up how we would feel if Justin Timberlake took part in a funny photobomb with us, and we don't think we'd be able to sleep for a week afterward.
Making Some Magic Happen With Daniel Radcliffe
Although we know Daniel Radcliffe is a real person who has starred in countless other movies, he'll always be Harry Potter to us. And although he wasn't wearing his round glasses or his invisibility cloak on this occasion, that didn't stop him from grabbing a fan's phone and photobombing this selfie! Judging by the tears in her eyes, she was pretty happy to let Daniel take the lead and make the magic happen.
It's many people's dream to meet Harry Potter in the flesh, so we can only imagine this lady is pretty pleased to have this photo on her phone for the rest of her days.
Hey There, Mr. Glass
To us, celebrities are the greatest of the great. They're at the top of the food chain, and most people would do anything in their power to get close to them. But it's important to realize that they're just ordinary people, too, and sometimes they don't want a camera shoved in their faces! But this guy obviously didn't get that memo, as he decided to force his own celebrity photobomb with Samuel L. Jackson.
Although the actor doesn't look too pleased about the situation, we know that Samuel L. Jackson is a nice guy. So, let's hope that he didn't get too mad with him!
With his red hair and freckles, Ed Sheeran is one of the most recognizable celebrity faces out there. Because of this, fans are constantly asking for his photo - but we don't think we've ever seen a photobomb like this one before. Sure, Ed is in the picture, but he's not the only one with some impressive hair. He also shared this photo with a hawk, and we're not sure why, either!
Although it looks as though Ed is trying to look as stern as this hawk, he's just not pulling it off. Ed always looks nice and approachable without even trying.
Caught in a Spiderweb With Tom Holland
There are so many coveted roles in the movie world, and Spiderman is one of them. Three different actors have had the chance to take on this role, and there's no doubt about the fact that Tom Holland is many people's favorite. We can only assume that he's this woman's favorite, too, so she knew she needed to get a selfie with the one and only Spiderman when she passed him in the street! And we think they nailed it.
No photo with Spiderman would be complete without pretending to shoot webs out of your hands, right? Although it does look as though Tom is pretty tired of this pose.
"I'm Trying to Sleep, Here! "
It's easy to assume that someone as rich and famous as Nicolas Cage only flies privately. He has a private jet on standby all the time, right? Well, not quite. Nic Cage is known for flying commercial whenever he can - which means that there's always a chance he could sit next to you on the plane. This woman realized that herself, and she decided to celebrate the occasion with a selfie.
And while we know Nic Cage doesn't mind taking selfies with fans, he doesn't look overly enthused on this occasion. We guess he'd rather be sleeping and using the complimentary sleeping mask.
Shut up and Look Cool
Let's be honest; Beyonce is the most famous woman in the world. Somehow, she retains her fame and fortune despite living a relatively private life - and you'll rarely see her interacting with fans in the wild. But that doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. In fact, this fan got the gift of a lifetime when he was photobombed by the legend herself. And if this isn't the coolest photo in the world, then we don't know what is.
It's not everyday you get to pose with a megastar, which is why this guy probably thanks his lucky stars that he got to pull a funny face with the one and only Beyonce.
A Group Effort
You probably don't need us to tell you that Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV shows of all time. Sure, people called out the questionable final episode, but that didn't take away from the fact that the previous seasons took the Seven Kingdoms by storm. And this woman hit the serious celebrity photobomb jackpot when she got to take a photo with a huge chunk of the cast. Yes, including George R.R. Martin!
This photo is better than the posed professional cast photos we've seen of these guys, and we had no idea Sandor Clegane looked like that in real life and out of costume!
Obviously Not a Fan of Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp's fan base has changed with everything that's happened in his life over the past few years. Some people love him even more, while others aren't so sure. And while we're no experts when it comes to baby body language, it looks as though this baby isn't exactly his biggest fan! Or perhaps it just hasn't had the chance to watch the actor in Pirates of the Caribbean just yet.
Of course, other fans would do anything to be as close to the actor as this baby, so this funny celebrity photobomb definitely shows two different sides of the coin!
Eyes Up, Bill
Although celebrities can't be in professional mode all the time, they should know that they need to compose themselves when there's a camera in their face. But it seems as though Bill Clinton forgot that little nugget of information when he took a selfie with this woman. Instead of keeping his eyes up and looking at the camera lens, he decided to look elsewhere - and it was all caught on camera!
This celebrity photobomb is a little awkward, especially as we don't know whether this woman would have been flattered or insulted by this sort of attention from a former President.
Got the Sweats?
They say that you should never meet your heroes, and this guy is the perfect example of that. After all, your body is flooded with nerves and adrenaline when you meet these people - and this guy sweated profusely as a result. Of course, this is a natural response to meeting a celebrity, but do you really want to be known as the guy with the sweaty armpits for the rest of your life?
Thankfully, it seems as though Morgan Freeman didn't notice the sweat patches, but we're still glad that his hand didn't go lower on this man's shoulders. That would have been awkward.
