Ariana’s Grande Hands
Ariana Grande took to Instagram to count down the release of her single “Focus”. However, a very specific part of the pint-sized singer was, well… grande. Ariana’s hand appears to be the size of her entire head!
We can only assume that her giant hand is a side effect of an attempt to smooth out her arm that it’s covering up. So, how did the pop star respond to the clap back? She disabled the comments on Instagram. Clever.
The Missing Piece
As a Kardashian, Khloé is no stranger to altering photos. Despite the fact that she has a flawless body, the reality star decided that she needed to be a bit slimmer. She shaved down her waist but forgot to follow through with the slimming process.
The result? It looks like a chunk of her hip was taken out and her side body just awkwardly… stops at some point. To make matters worse, this picture is super grainy — leaving us to think that nothing we see here is to be believed.
A Hairy Situation
Selena Gomez’s hairstylist posted this photo in order to show off the pop star’s new haircut. Rather than let her work speak for itself, though, the stylist decided to edit the photo to make Selena’s hair appear more voluminous.
Don’t believe us? Just check out the wall behind Selena’s flipped hair — it’s completely warped! While the singer/actress isn’t to blame for this one, she has been accused of editing her neck in various photos to make it seem slimmer. *Sigh*
Baby (Don’t) Got Back
Britney Spears recently shared a photo in which she’s laying on her back, chilling by her pool. However, the pop star’s back looks impossibly slim and that’s because it is!
If you look at the ground underneath her, it appears to be water, rather than the grass that Britney’s laying on — and the concrete has straight up disappeared! Either Britney has the strangest shaped pool of all time, or she’s altered this photo.
Victoria’s Secret Is Out!
Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr wasn’t able to keep the secret of how she manages to stay so slim. Fans have long realized that Miranda’s impossibly trim figure is the result of a lot of Photoshop.
In this particular photo, we can see that the bookcase behind the model is strangely bent and wavy. Clearly, Miranda wanted to create a curve in her back and bottom — but ended up curving the bookcase too.
A Mysterious Glow
John Mayer seems to be pretty into these filters, as he went way overboard with airbrushing his picture with Ricky Van Veen. The singer and his entrepreneur friend look completely unrecognizable in this freaky selfie. They both look like something from a low-quality computer game.
We can only assume that the goal here was to appear youthful and blemish-free. We suggest that these two stick with just good ol’ filterless photos, at least until they learn to have a lighter touch…
The Truth Came Out
It’s pretty clear that Kris Jenner forgot to talk to Gordon Ramsay about her Photoshop plans because they both uploaded the same picture to Instagram — which proved that Kris’ was heavily altered.
In the Momager’s version, both she and Gordon’s faces have been airbrushed to the point of creepy. In Gordon’s photo, he and Kris look what people should look when they’re upwards of 40. Kris even airbrushed Gordon’s face! Now, that’s just rude.
The Leg Is Still Loading
Model and influencer Anastasia Karanikolaou posted this photo of herself alongside her friend (and regular Photoshop culprit) Kylie Jenner. However, it appears that Anastasia’s leg is still uploading. Seriously — the model’s left leg looks like it’s been drawn on, as it’s disproportionately thin and curved at a strange angle.
It’s clear that Anastasia was unhappy with the width of her leg in this photo and instead of simply taking a new picture (or better yet, just admitting to having a normal-sized leg), she decided to heavily alter this one.
We truly have no idea what made Lindsay Lohan think her editing job was subtle, but this is probably the worst image manipulation we’ve ever seen.
Just one glance at the wall and display case behind LiLo makes it clear that she’s used some editing to curve her booty and slim down her waist and thighs. We know times have been tough for the actress in the past, but this is just painful to look at.
When You Purchase a Knock-Off
This picture of Khloé Kardashian is so heavily photoshopped that it’s impossible to tell who it is! If this weren’t on Khloé’s personal Instagram page, we’d have assumed that it was some other celebrity who we haven’t heard of.
This is like the Wish version of Khloé when we wanted Amazon! Always one who can take a joke, the reality star responded to the public backlash by sarcastically saying that she gets weekly face transplants. Wait, don’t all the Kardashians do that?
Squats Can’t Do That
Sorry, Kylie — there’s no amount of squats in the world that can create that booty. Kylie Jenner has clearly photoshopped her bottom to make it seem more voluptuous. Her jeans pockets look comically large and the belt loop is big enough to hold all the belts in the world!
We know fashion can be weird sometimes, but we highly doubt that anyone’s designed jeans with those proportions. If Kylie wants a convincing booty, she’s got to either take a Photoshop tutorial or do some squats!
The Little Mermaid
Kourtney Kardashian seems to have turned herself into a mermaid, as she’s photoshopped her legs so thin that they appear to be just one single entity. The reality star insists that she’s just standing at an awkward angle that hides one of her legs, but we’re not convinced.
There’s definitely something weird about this photo and the Kardashians have lost all of the public’s faith when it comes to natural pictures. Maybe it really is just a strangle photo but Kourtney’s going to have to regain our trust.
That’s One Unique Carpet!
Once again, Miranda Kerr is guilty of trimming down her already slim frame. The Victoria’s Secret model probably should’ve left this photo alone, as the carpet has a pattern, and patterns are notoriously difficult to Photoshop.
Instead, we’re left with a super-curved hallway that seems to lead to the Twilight Zone and Miranda’s even smaller figure. The door behind her elbow seems to be bent in weird places, too. It’s strange that in all this editing, she didn’t even think to brighten the lighting!
Don’t Mind the (Thigh) Gap
Beyoncé doesn’t usually have a thigh gap — which is just as beautiful as having a thigh gap. However, she seems to disagree as she photoshopped a gap between her thighs in this picture. It’s pretty clear to see, too, since the stair between her thighs is so obviously painted in.
It doesn’t even line up with the rest of the stairs! Unfortunately, Beyoncé is known to alter her thighs in most of her photos, despite the fact that it’s completely unnecessary.
Jordyn Woods posted this photo with then-BFF Kylie Jenner. Given Kylie’s love of Photoshop, this poorly edited picture could be what contributed to the two women having a fall-out (just kidding!).
Seriously, though, the carpet is so clearly distorted that it’s painfully obvious these women enhanced certain body parts and slimmed down others. We’re pretty sure that Momager Kris wasn’t too happy when this image got roasted online. Well, all press is good press — especially when you’re part of the Kardashian clan, right?
Supermodel Kate Upton is known to be body positive, which is probably why fans were so hesitant to believe that she photoshopped this picture. If you look at the sidewalk, it appears to be a bit warped, indicating that Kate may have slimmed down her arm a bit.
However, a lot of fans argue that it’s simply a weird sidewalk and Kate doesn’t edit her photos. It’s a debate that’ll probably never be resolved, so let’s put it this way — even if Kate did alter this picture, it’s a rare offense.
Doesn’t She Own a Mirror?
Miranda Kerr has been guilty, yet again, of photoshopping herself to appear slimmer. This time, it was done well enough to deceive but, unfortunately for Miranda, Victoria’s Secret published the real photo on their page.
The model insisted that she had “no idea” the version she posted had been altered — and had she known, she’d have put the original on her social media. Are we really meant to believe that this woman doesn’t know what she looks like?!
Maybe They’re in the Bermuda Triangle?
Taylor Swift went on vacation with the Haim sisters and posted several bikini photos of their trip. However, fans were quick to notice that the railing behind the women was not only warped but also seemed to inexplicably disappear in the middle of the photo.
It’s pretty clear that these pop stars altered their bodies in the picture. Since the image was on Taylor’s social media, people assume that she was the one responsible for the deception.
A Car From Another Planet
Kim Kardashian could’ve gotten away with this Photoshop, had she simply cropped the photo a bit. Unfortunately for her, the side of the picture gives away the fact that the reality star altered her appearance. The road is warped and the parking lines turn inward.
The worst part, though, is that car. It looks like it’s from another planet! Honestly, we’re just assuming it’s a car because of the context but you can’t tell just by looking at it on its own. How could Kim not have noticed?!
We’d Prefer Bra Bulge
Kourtney Kardashian uploaded this picture along with her friend, Larsa Pippen. However, it’s pretty noticeable that something strange is going on with Kourtney’s armpit. Obviously, something was changed here and the reality star simply forgot to fix her armpit afterward.
Based on this particular editing, we assume that she was trying to get rid of some bra bulge. Ironically, bra bulge would be a lot more understandable and relatable than a wonky armpit!
Born This Way
Lady Gaga works out so hard at the gym that she’s strong enough to bend the walls! Or, what’s more likely — Mother Monster wanted to slim down her arms and ended up warping the wall at the same time.
The floor looks a little funky too, which leads us to believe that the pop star altered her stomach and/or chest as well. Sorry, Gaga, but we just don’t believe that you were “born this way.”
How to Get Ripped
David Guetta shocked fans everywhere when he debuted his newly-ripped physique via a series of Instagram photos. While the DJ has most certainly gotten into shape, he’s not just as muscular as he’d like everyone to believe…
The background behind David appears to be wonky — in exactly the same areas where his muscles are largest. If he was already trying to get fit anyway, why didn’t he just wait with his new-look debut until his muscles really were that size?
Can He Photoshop a Win?
Professional boxer Jake Paul obviously wanted to look extra ripped to promote one of his fights. In fact, he wanted to look a certain way so badly that he photoshopped muscles onto his upper body. How do we know?
The stripes from the background of the photo are literally pouring onto his shoulders! Okay, so now we know that even professional fighters digitally enhance their muscles. Now, the question is — can Jake Photoshop himself into actually winning a fight?
Oops, She Did it Again
It appears that Britney Spears has slimmed down her hips in this image. As it turns out, the pop star completely forgot to check the background after she had gotten her body looking the way she wanted.
The drawers behind her are completely warped and have clearly been digitally manipulated. In case anyone thought that it’s maybe just a really weird dresser, Britney’s posted many other photos in front of that piece of furniture and it’s never appeared bent before.
Do We Believe Her?
Jennifer Lopez posted this photo of her unbelievably fit body and immediately got backlash for Photoshop. Fans noticed a smudge on the singer/actress’s side, which led them to believe that she digitally manipulated her abs.
JLo explained that she simply works hard at the gym and the smudge was due to her dirty mirror. While the internet remains divided on this one, we’re kind of inclined to believe her. What do you think?
Supplements and Photoshop
Kris Jenner posted this photo in order to promote the supplements she claims to use. However, fans were quick to notice that this picture received some artificial assistance, as well. The gym equipment behind Kris’ right arm looks super wonky, which implies that she’s changed the shape of her arm and/or waist.
Ironically, the supplement Kris is promoting says it helps to “cleanse.” Well, a Photoshop cleanse is most definitely what the Kardashian/Jenner clan needs!
The Proof Is in the Pudding
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice showed off her hourglass figure in a promotional post for a protein pudding. However, her fans probably won’t be buying that pudding anytime soon, as Teresa’s body is clearly the result of Photoshop — not some magical product.
The cabinet behind her hip is super bent, which shows that she’s altered her hip and waist. There’s also something weird going on with the reality star’s hand, which seems like a weird thing to bother photoshopping.
Despite the time that’s passed since her last major Photoshop fail, it seems that Lindsay Lohan still hasn’t mastered this art. She recently posted this picture on her social media, in which she’s wearing a waist trainer.
Well, the waist trainer isn’t responsible for LiLo’s figure — Photoshop is! The stairs behind Lindsay’s left hip are curved in a strange way, in an attempt to slim down her waist and curve up her hips. So, don’t go out and buy yourselves a waist trainer just yet!
It’s a Cute Bikini, Though
Sofia Richie’s main claim to fame is dating Scott Disick of former Kardashian fame and her modeling career. Clearly, Sofia’s learned to take a page out of Scott’s ex’s book — this image is so poorly photoshopped that it’s surprising she even posted it at all!
In an attempt to “perfect” her body, Sofia has warped the railing behind her, made her hands absolutely huge, and completely altered her left leg. The Kardashians would’ve been proud!
There’s a Glitch in the Matrix
There seems to be a glitch in the Matrix at whatever beach Ashley Graham visited for her Sports Illustrated photoshoot. Although the model didn’t Photoshop this image herself, she did repost the edited version on her own Instagram page.
Ashley’s bottom looks strangely pixelated in this photo, and it’s significantly smaller than it appears in reality. Clearly, Sports Illustrated couldn’t handle Ashley’s curvacious booty in all its glory.
That Skater’s Floating on Air!
Emily Ratajkowski should probably have a talk with long-time pal Amy Schumer about body image! In fact, we should really all talk to Amy about how to feel confident in our skin. That being said, this photo was definitely not a shining moment for this model/actress.
Emily has clearly edited her body in this image, as her elbow looks extremely wonky and the skater behind her appears to be floating in the air.
The Perfect Life Hack
Blake Lively has found the perfect life hack for those of us who hate shopping. When she didn’t have the right shoes to match her outfit for this photo with hubby Ryan Reynolds, Blake simply took the picture barefoot while standing on her tippy toes.
Afterward, she drew on these perfectly chic heels. Given that this particular Photoshop didn’t alter her body in any way, and doesn’t contribute to unrealistic beauty standards, we’re all for it! Thanks for the life hack, Blake!
An Honest Mistake
Ronda Rousey has never been one to shy away from flexing her muscular figure, so fans were shocked when the wrestler posted this photo of her guest appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show. Ronda’s right arm appears to have been slimmed down in this image.
After fans called her out on it, Ronda apologized and explained that she’d reposted the image, not noticing that it had been altered. Given that the difference is subtle, and Ronda doesn’t usually use Photoshop, we believe that this was an honest mistake.
The Only Way Is Photoshop
The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs doesn’t try to be subtle about her love for Photoshop. The curvy doorframe behind the reality star is proof that Amy altered her figure in this photo.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that she’s been caught in a body-image-related lie. Amy’s post about her disdain for plastic surgery resulted in fans pointing out that she’s been having various cosmetic procedures since the age of 18. Amy, we think it’s time to just own it.
The Public Gave it Away
Aubrey O’Day didn’t seem to get the memo as to why most photoshopped images are selfies. It’s because when you’re in public, other people can take the exact same photo of you. That’s how the singer got called out for drastically changing her body in this photo.
The picture in question was taken at a public event, so there were countless copies of the original image online. That’s one point for the internet and zero points for Aubrey.
Maybe Stick to Baking?
Mariah Carey used Thanksgiving to give thanks to Photoshop in this picture. We’re sure that wasn’t her intention, but no one was able to deny that this image had been altered. The mirror is wonky, proving that Mariah altered her left arm and/or chest.
Also, the wavy cabinet by her right leg is an obvious sign that she’s slimmed down her lower body. Maybe Mariah should just stick to baking, as that pie does look delicious! Unless that was photoshopped, too?
Insert Child Here
Kim Kardashian’s famous family posed for this Halloween photo together. However, Chicago seemed strangely out of place — kind of like she’d been plopped into the photo from an alternate reality. Well, she sort of was! Kim explained that they had to Photoshop Chicago into the picture.
Apparently, the one-year-old was scared of Kanye’s Dino costume and didn’t want to be in the picture. We’re all for using Photoshop to make sure your kid isn’t left out, so this is one Kardashian Photoshop fail that we can get behind!
This Little Piggy Got Photoshopped Out
The Kardashians are accused of Photoshop so often that there’s even a conspiracy theory — the reason they never wear patterned clothes is because they’re too difficult to alter subtly.
Well, this photo of Kim Kardashian is not an exception, as she’s mysteriously missing a toe on her right foot. It seems that someone wanted to slim down her leg next to that foot and accidentally took one of her tootsies along with it!
The Shape of Water
We’ve all heard the saying “I’d move heaven and earth for you.” Well, it seems that’s exactly what Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden did for this picture. The shape of the horizon, water, and dock are all completely warped in Amanda’s efforts to slim down her figure.
After being called out for altering this picture, Amanda deleted it from her social media altogether. Maybe the talent show judge should request that someone who’s got skills in Photoshop compete in the show’s next season?
Madonna is known to Photoshop her images in order to hide the signs of aging. The 63-year-old icon often uses heavy filters and airbrushing to look like she’s still in her 30s. However, this particular photo requires a little more explanation as the singer literally superimposed her face onto a 28-year-old TikToker’s body.
Amelia Goldie claims that she’s tried to reach out to Madonna’s team but never received a response. We get wanting to look young but to steal youth?! C’mon, Madonna!
Part of the Family
Given his romance with Kim Kardashian, it’s very possible that Pete Davidson may soon become part of the famous family. Well, part of being a Kardashian is getting heavily photoshopped — and it looks like Kim is already trying to prepare Pete.
The reality star has been accused of editing her boyfriend’s appearance in various photos. For example, it seems that in this picture, Kim altered Pete’s nose and jawline. Well, he can’t say he didn’t know what he was getting himself into…
It’s not often that celebrities decide to flip the script on their fans, obstructing someone else’s photo – or even posing in the background without them knowing. Here are some classic examples of celebrities who photobombed ordinary people.
Bruce Springsteen – Born to Photobomb
Technically speaking, this doesn’t really qualify as a photobomb, seeing that the person taking the photo is aware that a celebrity is posing for the camera! How amazing would it be if your favorite artist brought you on set and let you take a selfie of him and the entire crowd? Well, that’s exactly what happened at this Bruce Springsteen concert! The Boss gave this diehard fan the most unforgettable photo that she has ever taken.
The Rock – He Smelt What This Guy Was Cooking
It’s not every day that you’re walking down the street and all of a sudden, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson passes you mid-selfie. This guy couldn’t believe his luck. Not only did he catch the People’s Champ at the perfect moment, but the wrestler-turned-Hollywood-superstar posed for the camera during his walk to the gym! There is no denying that The Rock is truly a man who loves his millions upon millions of fans.
John Krasinski – Caught These Red Sox Fans Red-Handed
It’s quite amazing the trajectory that John Krasinski’s career has taken. Originally a comedian and a fan-favorite on the hit sitcom The Office, Krasinski has since tied the knot with Hollywood star Emily Blunt and he has directed his very own blockbuster, A Quiet Place. Despite this, “Kras” still finds time to visit his team, the Boston Red Sox, every once in a while. Then this happened and his fellow fans appreciated him in a completely different way.
Steven Tyler – Didn’t Want to Miss a Thing!
We’re not too sure why this woman decided to have her photo taken at a parking lot by her local supermarket. Maybe she just wanted to make the most of the beautiful weather. Who knows? At any rate, she must have been grateful that she asked her husband to take the photo when he did. Because little did she know, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was right there behind her. He didn’t seem too prepared though.
Jason Segel – How I Crashed Your Engagement
While he hasn’t been that prolific in the last couple of years, there is no denying that Jason Segel is one of the most talented and charming actors to grace both the big and small screen in the last 15 years. The man who played Marshall Eriksen on the popular sitcom How I Met Your Mother is a hopeless romantic in his own right and loves nothing more than getting in the way of a couple trying to enjoy their engagement photo.
Zach Braff – The Ultimate Gatecrasher
Zach Braff wasn’t interested in turning up at a random wedding to surprise the lucky bride and groom. Instead, he was just passing through Times Square when he was caught in the middle of a photoshoot and the rest was history.
Aaron Paul – Photobombing Bad
When you play a character as iconic as Jesse Pinkman from the hit series Breaking Bad, you’re pretty much sorted for life. Of course, Aaron Paul would like to think he’ll get some other big roles in the near future. Until then though, the actor has no problem enjoying himself at huge festivals like Coachella. Somehow, he managed to stay hidden from thousands of people who might notice him. However, this couple recognized him as soon as they took this photo.
Adam Sandler – The Wedding Bomber
Adam Sandler has always been a funny guy, so it should come as no surprise that when he accidentally wandered into the middle of this couple’s wedding photo session, he decided to get involved and pose for some pictures with the happy couple. “We told him we’re huge fans, we love his work, we’ve watched all his films,” the newlyweds said of the incident. “He replied, ‘Good, I’ll take some photos then – mazel tov!'”
Justin Bieber – It’s Too Late to Say “Sorry”
If there’s ever a time that we hope not to get photobombed, it would be when we’re sleeping. It’s a classic prank that many of us have played on our friends during a field trip. They fall asleep on the bus and so you take the opportunity to have a photo with them while they’re in La La Land. Justin Bieber seized this opportunity when he found this guy asleep on the way to one of his concerts.
Jason Momoa – Aquaman Strikes Again
What are the odds that you are having your wedding photos taken and then all of a sudden, Aquaman shows up behind you? This poses some big questions. Firstly, if he isn’t filming an Aquaman movie, why would Jason Momoa be walking around a coastline with a trident in his hand? The only sensible explanation is that he actually is the King of Atlantis. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a huge mystery on our hands!
Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West – Be My Guests!
This lady and her baby have no idea that Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West, who comprise one of the most famous celebrity power couples in the world, is sitting right behind her, and they have no idea they’re being photographed! Whoever captured this has serious potential when it comes to candid celeb-stalking – a career as a paparazzo might not be such a bad idea for them. But knowing these two, they will find whoever took this picture and somehow find a way to make money out of it.
Prince Harry – Making His Markle
For those of you who are familiar with models and the world of fashion, you might recognize the woman in this photo – Winnie Harlow. OK, so maybe she’s not the most ordinary person on this list who got photobombed. Nevertheless, the guy who did photobomb her is definitely more famous than her! Prince Harry is known for being a rebellious figure, as far as royal standards go. So this hilarious face he pulled shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.
Patrick Stewart – Photobombing a Fellow Mutant
This is one of those examples where a celebrity took it upon themselves to photobomb a group of ordinary people who happen to be posing with another celebrity. Our guess is that Hugh Jackman was filming one of the X-Men movies (hence the Wolverine hairstyle), and some fans were brought on set to meet some of the stars. At first, they were told that Patrick Stewart wasn’t available for a photo. However, at the last minute, Professor X managed to show up!
Tom Hanks – Drink, Forrest, Drink!
There is no doubt that Tom Hanks is renowned for giving his fans a lot of love and time. However, this was one occasion when the fan in question didn’t remember anything from the moment he met his hero. The Forrest Gump star was excited to have a good time with one of his biggest fans. But by the time he arrived at the bar, Mr. Hanks was surprised to see that the fan was already out. He decided to give him this memento on his phone.
Paul McCartney – Love Me Do!
There are millions upon millions of fans out there who simply take every lyric that The Beatles ever wrote as gospel. So when this pair of Beatles fans noticed that Paul McCartney was riding past their wedding photoshoot, they knew that it must be a sign from the rock gods. The man who once rocked with John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr was more than happy to stop his bike, pose with the newlyweds and get on with his day.
Ken Jeong – Leslie Chow Is in the Building!
There is no denying that Ken Jeong is best recognized for his breakout role as Leslie Chow in the popular Hangover film series. This has proven to be a double-edged sword for the actor. Although he is consistently getting work, it seems like most casual moviegoers will point him out in public for that particular role. This means that at every opportunity, he is trying to photobomb strangers before they have a chance to interact with him.
Bryan Cranston – I Am the One Who Photobombs!
Imagine if you bumped into a celebrity and you got the chance to take a photo with them. However, imagine if this happened and another celebrity was passing by and decide to photobomb you? This is exactly what happened to this poor young lady, who was so excited to share a moment with Ty Burrell, one of the stars of Modern Family. After checking her phone, she noticed that a certain Bryan Cranston had sabotaged the photo!
Dave Chapelle – The Worst Third Wheel Ever
How would a couple have no idea that someone as funny as Dave Chapelle would be sitting right behind them during their engagement photos? This couple was simply minding their own business, having some drinks. Then, out of the blue, one of comedy’s most iconic stars showed up and decided to give the couple a photobomb that they would never forget. Let’s just hope he didn’t crack any inappropriate jokes afterward.
Jerry Seinfeld – What’s the Deal With Jerry?
A guy took his daughter away for the weekend when, out of the blue, they bumped into Ferris Beuler himself, Matthew Broderick. Absolutely starstruck, he begged the actor to take a photo of him with his little girl, to which Broderick wholeheartedly obliged. Little did he realize though that there was another celebrity standing to the side. It was Jerry Seinfeld! He didn’t recognize him until he looked at the photo while he was in the car!
Bill Gates – “Gate”-Crashing the Photo
If you happen to be having a tour around the Microsoft headquarters, there is a small chance that you might end up bumping into the company’s founder, the legendary Bill Gates. Unfortunately for this guy, he never got a chance to meet the multi-billionaire. Then, as he checked his phone after taking a photo in front of a Microsoft sign, he noticed something remarkable – Bill Gates of all people, photobombed him! It was a day he’d never forget.
Jake Gyllenhaal – Peek-a-Jake!
Although this actor is best known for playing serious roles, it’s very clear that Jake has a goofy side to him. When this cute group of females took a minute to document their day, they had no idea that a bonafide mega-celebrity would sneak in and make their picture totally epic. Not only did he land an epic photobomb right into this trio’s selfie, he decided to make it an extra hilarious one by pulling this insane expression.
Michael Cera – Que Cera, Cera
Michael Cera is a down to earth kinda guy, despite his stardom – and this isn’t too surprising when you think about it. The actor, who became famous thanks to his roles in hit teen films like Superbad and Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, usually plays the kind of characters who would accidentally wander into the background of someone’s selfie. So here is a great example of life imitating art – Cera innocently peeking into this girl’s lense and waving hello. She looks pretty happy about it!
The Queen – This Photobomb is Royally Crazy
When you think of a celebrity photobomber, you think of someone who has a tendency to do cheeky things. It has to be someone who is known for having a bit of a mischievous side to them. Right? Wrong! It turns out that Queen Elizabeth is just as capable of taking part in photobombs as anyone else on this list. These two young women, who appear to be participating in some sort of sport, couldn’t believe their eyes.
Slash – She Had No Idea
Anyone who was into music during the ’80s will be familiar with the classic rock band Guns ‘N’ Roses. With so many great hits to their name, it makes sense that some of today’s senior citizens would still hold the band very close to their hearts. The following photo shows a woman wearing a t-shirt of her favorite guitar player, Slash. Little did she know though that the rock legend was walking right behind her!
Amy Schumer – A Trainwreck of a Photo
When Amy Schumer was pregnant, she was happy just to get out of the house every once in a while and take a stroll down the park. Then, on one fateful day, she saw a couple and knew exactly what was happening. They were taking engagement photos! Excited by what she saw, she quietly walked up to the couple and the photographer just went with it, snapping away to provide the soon-to-be newlyweds with some truly unforgettable photos.
George Clooney – Oh, Hi Ellie
Ellie Goulding was absolutely delighted to share a moment with Raynald Aeschlimann at the Omega anniversary party. However, she had no idea that someone was hiding in the background and managed to ruin a perfectly good photo between her and the Omega CEO. George Clooney simply doesn’t understand boundaries, especially when it comes to seeing other celebrities taking photos that he isn’t supposed to be in. It seems like Amal wasn’t looking when George decided to act like a two-year-old.
Jennifer Lawrence – Stop! That’s My Interview!
We’re not too sure what the context is behind this photo… One thing’s for sure though, whatever Taylor Swift is talking to Ryan Seacrest about, Jennifer Lawrence isn’t too pleased. At the very least, she thinks she deserves to speak instead. In case you forgot, this wasn’t the first time that Swift was interrupted while she was speaking. She’ll forever be haunted by that time that Kanye West butted in during her award acceptance speech at the Video Music Awards.
Jon Hamm – Truly a Mad Man
January Jones and Kiernan Shipka truly have fond memories of working together on the hit series Mad Men. And while their relationship with on-screen father/husband Jon Hamm was complicated to say the very least, they also thoroughly enjoyed working with him during that awesome run. You could say that this was something of a family reunion. However, we’re not so sure how aware Shipka and Jones were that Hamm was eerily lurking in the background.
Benedict Cumberbatch – Doctor Strange, Indeed
Who gave Benedict Cumberbatch permission to photobomb one of the most iconic rock bands of all time? Bono, Edge and the rest of U2 were excited to have a group photo on the red carpet with some of their loved ones. Little did they know though that the man famous for roles such as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Stephen Strange was hiding behind them, ready to pounce. It turns out that Cumberbatch is kind of notorious for photobombing other celebrities.
Neil Flynn & Eric Stonestreet – War of the Sitcoms
Talk about a clash of the titans! There is no denying that Neil Flynn was the unsung hero of the classic medical sitcom Scrubs, playing everyone’s favorite janitor. Eventually, though, Eric Stonestreet burst onto the scene and became the next generation’s beloved sitcom guy on Modern Family. In this photo, Eric was delighted to have a photo taken with a huge fan at a baseball game. Little did he know that Neil Flynn was right there, planning his revenge.
Nicolas Cage – Hey Baby!
It is not every day that you are at the grocery store and all of a sudden, Nicolas Cage shows up. Unfortunately for this young mother, she had no idea that the Con Air star was standing right behind her. She was simply having a photo taken with her baby and her husband. To be fair, the dad was in on it and managed to stay incredibly cool as Cage butted in for a pretty epic photobomb.
Robert Pattinson – The Revenge of Edward
Anyone who grew up during the last decade is well aware that Robert Pattinson was one of the stars of the Twilight film saga. His role as Edward Cullen was undeniably creepy. We just hope that these three friends didn’t look down after the photo was taken. It’s bad enough looking at the photo afterward and realizing that one of the most iconic vampires in Hollywood history is hiding behind your legs! Undeniably creepy, indeed.
Adele – Rolling in the Background
If you have been paying attention to pop music over the last decade or so, you will appreciate just how far Adele has come during that time. The singer has won an incredible number of awards and her music has warmed the hearts of millions of people around the world. What many don’t realize about the “Rolling in the Deep” singer is that she actually has a wicked sense of humor and will photobomb her fans, from time to time.
Harry Styles – Just Waiting His Turn
It was a warm summer’s day, and the line for an autograph with One Direction was long. Despite that, Harry Styles himself – the man that everybody was waiting in line to see – decided there could be no better time than to put his feet in his fans’ shoes and join the ranks. All the young ladies looked ahead with excitement, before realizing in a fit of mania that the legend himself was standing right behind them…
Cheryl Cole – An Unpleasant Surprise
It’s hard to say for sure whether this innocent passerby was disgustingly thrilled or just disgusted to run into English singer Cheryl Cole, but one thing’s for sure – she never would have made that face for the camera intentionally. But if her goal was to have a photo with the pop star go viral, that unusual expression was definitely the way to go. We’ll assume neither of them could have guessed how this photo would turn out.
Maisie Williams – Game Of Phones
This may not be Game of Thrones, but whatever game it is, Maisie Williams is obviously winning it. Known for her quirky antics and impenetrable sense of humor, she wasn’t about to let this poor bloke off the hook so easily with his sneaky picture attack – busting out the weirdest face she could muster and getting the last laugh in, as usual. Joke’s on you, mister! But his photo still went viral, so perhaps everyone wins here.
Justin Timberlake – Justin Time
Well, this cool group of dudes may have wished their selfie would be noticed by Justin Timberlake, but they certainly never thought it would actually happen…but then their wish come true. In one second that would turn into an eternity, the megastar turned around and struck a pose for the little camera just in time, giving the dudes and the world something to smile about forever. And as always, he did it with impeccable style.
Jimmy Fallon Gives Cameron Diaz A Tall Order
So that’s what they were plotting up there in his office…Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to photobombing, and he has a special talent for getting our favorites from Hollywood to join in on his crazy antics. Shortly after having her on his show, Jimmy and pal Cameron Diaz decided to head on up to the top of one of the world’s tallest buildings and surprise some innocent picture takers. And of course, the rest of us got a surprise too once it reached the internet.
Amy Schumer – Snatched!
There is no doubt in our mind that this couple will look at this photo years from now and think to themselves, “wow that was one heck of a day.” Not only did they tie the knot on a beautiful sunny day – Amy Schumer photobombed their wedding photos. The bride looks surprised, and the groom, well the groom looks like he doesn’t know who the woman standing behind him is…though, if you ask us, it looks like they have been best friends for years.
Aubrey Plaza – Pics and Recreation
At first glance, this looks like a candid photo of a pretty confused Hugh Jackman. You know, just your regular paparazzi photo. But if you look closely – you’ll notice Aubrey Plaza glaring at the actor with her famous “death-stare.” We can’t tell for sure if this was “right place at the right time” kind of strange coincidence or if Plaza and Jackman were grabbing a bite to eat, whatever the case may be, we want to know the story behind this photobomb.
Beyoncé – Video Phone
If we’re honest – in our book, anyone that was graced with the presence of Queen B is the photobomber themselves. You can tell Beyoncé was in the middle of singing her heart out when this superfan was lucky enough to snap a photo with the diva. We don’t know what we’re feeling looking at this photo, perhaps it is a mix of jealously and some hardcore “you go girl” vibes!
Elton John – Can You Feel the Photobomb Tonight?
Of all the things Sir Elton John has accomplished in his life – this may be one of our favorites. Yes, that is Elton John sitting at the head of this table. We wonder how long it took for this guy to figure out that the British legend was sitting just one table away – or if he knew and was slyly catching a photo of the Pinball Wizard. We hope it is the latter because there is no other excuse for this awkwardly angeled photo.
George Clooney – Photobomb’s 11
We love when co-stars love each other as much as we love them. This waiter must have been escatic when Matt Damon agreed to take a photo with him. We can only imagine he was over the moon when he looked at his phone and saw that not only was Damon in the photo, but he got a keepsake with one of Hollywood’s most beloved actors, George Clooney. What makes this all the more impressive is that Damon seems to be pointing at the waiter, but because Clooney is standing right behind him, it looks like he is pointing at the photobomber himself.
Selena Gomez – 500 Days of Joseph
It looks like Joseph Gordon-Levitt was blindsided by the photographer catching a photo of him. What is more surprising is the look on Selena Gomez’s face as she’s standing behind JGL. You barely notice her in the shadows, but when you do, this makes for a pretty funny photobomb. Even Instagram’s most-followed celeb, Gomez, gets starstruck sometimes, and we can’t blame her. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been our celeb crush since we saw him in 10 Things I Hate About You, way back in middle school.
Jared Leto – A Real Joker
Any photo of Jennifer Lopez is an above-average photo if you ask us – even this one. Jared Leto was on his way to greet someone when this photo was shot, J.Lo, on the other hand, is looking fierce. It is like she hasn’t got a care in the world, and why should she? She is Jennifer Lopez. It is interesting though, usually, photobombers are the ones that are at the back of the picture – Jared and Jen have revolutionized the photobomb.
Nicole Kidman – Big Little Photobombs
This photo has us simply starstruck. We cannot get over the fact that Russell Crowe and Meryl Streep are in the same frame. To top it all off, we have the queen, Nicole Kidman, creepily eyeing the camera down in between the two award-winning actors. We wonder if Nicole knew she was being photographed, or if she happened to glance at the camera exactly when the photo was being taken. Either way, this photo is all of our goals.
Shaquille O’Neal – Shaq Attack
If this is the first time, you’ve seen a photobomb inside a photobomb, welcome to the club. Shaq is photobombing Erica Ash and Tiffany Haddish while Nick Kroll is photobombing the three of them. Photobombing someone as tall as Shaq seems like it would be impossible, but Kroll managed to succeed in doing so. The comedian sneaked in from the side, as opposed to the classic photobomb from behind – we’re feeling it.
Dwayne Johnson – You Rock
This photo was obviously taken at a Christmas party. Everybody was about to unwrap their presents when they gathered around to take a festive photo. Although this looks like it was a pretty merry party, knowing that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was a guest makes it all the happier. The way he just popped into this photo, the pure joy in his face – we couldn’t imagine Johnson photobombing a Christmas photo any other way.
Wiz Khalifa – See You Again
Have you ever thought about the random people that show up in your family photos? The strangers that become a part of your memories just because they happened to be there when the photo was snapped? Well, for this family, Wiz Khalifa has become a part of their family reunion forever. It is pretty cool, of all the strangers in the photo, Wiz Khalifa is the only one looking straight at the camera. It’s like he somehow knew that this would make for one of the best photobombs.
Kevin Spacey – House of Photobombs
Taking photos in front of monuments can often be awkward – on the one hand, you want a keepsake of your trip. On the other hand, you’re standing there by yourself, waiting for someone to snatch the photo. Kevin Spacey made this photo a little less awkward when he photobombed this woman’s photo mid-run. Her facial expression is priceless, she was genuinely shocked to see that the actor had stopped to take a photo with her. This photo is a monumental one, and it isn’t because of the statue behind this woman.
Ed Sheeran – You Need Me, I Don’t Need You
We’re not entirely sure who these guys are who are taking a perfectly innocent photo. However, if there is someone who can help to lighten the mood, then it is the one and only Ed Sheeran. The singer behind hits such as “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You,” “Shape of You” and “Galway Girl” loves nothing more than ruining group photos and will do whatever it takes to make sure that his face is in the final shot.
Arnold Schwarzenegger – Tour De France
This group of Chinese tourists was totally caught off guard when none other than the Exterminator walked in from of their group shot in front of the Eiffel Tower. It doesn’t even look like they recognized this random dude who stopped his bicycle to photobomb them. It definitely looks like no matter how old this former actor and Governor of California gets, he will never lose his sense of humor.
Nicolas Cage – A Cagey Encounter
When you have a list of celebrity photobombs and more than one of them involves the same celebrity, you know that means they like to intrude on other people’s photos. When this customer was walking to the bathroom at a restaurant, his girlfriend told him to pose for the camera. At first, he had no idea why she wanted to take a photo of him at that very moment. Then he looked at the photo and realized that he was standing next to Nicolas Cage.
Jimmy Fallon & Jon Hamm – Who Are These Mad Men?
There is no doubt that Jimmy Fallon is obviously the kind of celebrity who gets a kick out of photobombing ordinary people. He seems to have a lot of time on his hands for a guy who hosts his own celebrity talk show. Amazingly though, he was able to recruit Mad Men star Jon Hamm to go on a photobombing spree on top of a New York skyscraper! This poor family was one of their many victims.
Chris Pratt & Chris Evans – Photobombers! Assemble!
What’s better than being photobombed by a star from the Marvel Cinematic Universe? That’s right folks – being photobombed by two stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Jimmy Fallon managed to recruit both Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, who star as Captain America and Star-Lord, respectively, to do some photobombing work. This couple had no idea what they had in store for them. However, video footage of this whole fiasco ended up on Fallon’s YouTube page.
Wil Wheaton – Photobomb by Me
There seems to be three generations of Wil Wheaton fans. Firstly, there were those who remember him for his role in the classic movie Stand By Me. Then there are those who recall his time on Star Trek: The Next Generation. And finally, his most recent memorable work has come on The Big Bang Theory, where he plays himself. Wheaton decided to photobomb his Eureka co-host Felicia Day, who was posing for a selfie with her own fan…
