The now common practice isn’t just limited to mere mortals, even celebrities are doing it! Just look at Jennifer Lawrence bombing on Sarah Jessica Parker at the 2013 Met Gala. She photobombs just like you! Only she does it while being rich, famous and ridiculously attractive. Some of her famous pals have gotten into the mix too.
5 Kermit the Frog
It isn’t easy being green. It also isn’t easy to upstage Lady Gaga. But Mr. Kermit the Frog has got a pretty solid handle on both. Yes, he’s a felt puppet, but he’s got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, so we’re going to count it. During a red carpet gathering for the MTV Video Music Awards, Kermit managed to pull off the impossible and steal the limelight from Lady Gaga in a drive-by photobombing! Hanging out the window of his limo with his mouth agape, the notorious swine-lover was likely less than thrilled to see Gaga’s choice of footwear; boots made entirely of ham.
4 Daniel Craig
If you ever had any doubts about the acting versatility of Daniel Craig, this picture should pretty much squash those. One would assume that a man who plays the most dashing, debonair, confident, and overall friggin’ awesome characters to grace the Silver Screen is pretty much always that cool. At least until this Taylor Swift selfie featuring an odd, mustachioed man in the background emerged. Yup, it’s none other than Daniel Craig, who has transformed himself into one of the creepiest creeps to ever creep. The man’s a chameleon.
3 Michael Cera
As if the world doesn’t already love Michael Cera enough for his supremely uncomfortable contributions to Arrested Development, now he’s solidified himself among the greatest celebrity photobombers of all time. The soft-spoken actor has popped up in several famous photobombs, begging the question of whether he’s doing it on purpose or if he is actually awkward at a George Michael Bluth level and just accidentally wondering into people’s pictures. In any case, look out behind you! There’s a good chance Michael Cera is there.
2 Kelly Clarkson
The former American Idol makes this list for the sheer enthusiasm she shows while photobombing Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi at the Grammys. Sure, Kelly is a world famous singer with a successful career of her own, but that doesn’t mean she can’t go all “super-fan” in the background of a photo of other celebrities. Kelly looks like the girl who begged and begged until her record producer cousin finally agreed to let her come to the Grammys if she promised to be cool, then she promptly made him regret it wholeheartedly.
1 Simon Pegg
The genius comic actor from films like Shawn of the Dead and Hot Fuzz pulled off the best celebri-bomb to date, by straight up owning Tom Cruise. During the red carpet premiere of Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol, Pegg saw that once again, the film’s leading man was getting all the attention. Why should Tom Cruise enjoy a photo shoot with two of his beautiful costars on his arm while Simon is left in the lurch? He shouldn’t. So Simon did what any good bomber would; he jumped directly in front of Cruise and stole the spotlight.
