While celebrities spend their lives looking good for the camera, they too have run into some photo blunders here and there. Yep, we’re not the only ones who can awkwardly step in front of a shot and ruin a perfectly captured moment. Famous people have been known to photobomb many times. The only difference? The reaction is generally a lot more positive. Take a look at the times these celebs hilariously photobombed regular folks.
The Queen of England
Talk about being greener on the other side. These two girls took a selfie of themselves at a hockey game in Glasgow. While trying to capture a moment, they unknowingly made history when they got Queen Elizabeth II in the frame.
Perfectly capturing the smiling queen definitely made this moment even more memorable.
Talk about a meeting of worlds. This photobomb might differ from the ones before because unlike this one, the photographers were likely familiar with the celeb that photobombed them. In this case, it’s not so certain. These country club folks have no idea that rapper Wiz Khalifa is sitting right there.
While Wiz seems rather amused, his buddy looks like he’s thinking to himself, “I’m getting out of here!”
Talk about an endorsement. The Big Star Sandwich Company stumbled on the perfect ad campaign. If Liam Neeson eats (for free) there, then that's where I want to go.
Business must be doing amazingly.
Celebs photobombing celebs. That's always fun. Here we have Benedict Cumberbatch jumping in on a U2 photoshoot. While everyone is famous here, not everyone is on the same level of star-power. And that is very clear from Benedict's "I'm not worthy pose."
Thankfully the band didn't notice the drama in the back and just continued being the rockstars they are.
So you're just walking down the street minding your own business when all of a sudden Dwayne the Rock Johnson appears out of nowhere and powerfully cheers you on. It's like this guy can turn the most mundane moment into an action movie blockbuster.
There's no doubt that that guy's day was only positive from there on out.
Dude, learn how to read a room. We know how tempting it must be to take a selfie with Rihanna. She's one of the most popular singers that ever lived and she is just about everybody's dream girl. In this situation though, it doesn't look she wants to be seen.
We wonder what went down after that click. By the look of her face, we don't think it was too good.
A-list celebs still go awkward around certain 'colleagues', especially if they happen to be supermodel Heidi Klum. Her presence can make any man go a little weak at the knees and it looks like Paul Rudd is proof of that. Either that or he's trying awkwardly approach her.
Either way, Paul, man, get it together, buddy. Straighten up and most importantly, move!
Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman
Double trouble. This trio pictured over here is quite the sight. Funnyman Jack Black and the legendary actor Dustin Hoffman are in an interesting position. Could this be a reference to Kung Fu Panda?
Very likely. Still, it looks like this shot was an exclusively Angelina one. Sorry, boys.
As good as these celebs look in front of the camera, they can't be camera-ready 24/7. Jake Gyllenhaal sure did give his best shot though when this couple tried to sneak a peak. While he did act like he was game, it's not terribly convincing.
Either way, that couple looks proud as anything.
These guys are super with it. A Backwards cap on the one and a Band-Aid on the other à la Nelly, circa 2002. Naturally, tweedle dee and tweedle dum, like a moth to a flame, would jump on a Kanye selfie just to show how cool they truly are. Street cred galore.
Unfortunately, their homie Kanye seems a little dead inside. This is probably the 1000th photo of that day.
Bill Murray's Back
Bill Murray seems to be a fixture at random people's events. We not sure if they seek him out or if he just sort wanders into these kinds of situations. Knowing him, it definitely seems like that latter.
Luckily for him, this girl seems only too happy to have him as a guest.
Nicolas Cage Is Back
Uh oh, looks like Nic Cage is hovering over the wine again, this time looking a little worse than he did before. Is that a hipster waiter caught off guard by the camera? No, that's the famous DJ Deadmau5. You wouldn't recognize him as he always performs with a giant mouse helmet on his head. All of this begs the question, "why is this photo?"
Still, we do hope that this photo is now framed sitting beautifully upon someone's mantlepiece, right next to the family portraits.
When this girl went to the game, she probably had no idea that she'd walk out with a star-studded pic. Baseball star Matt Garza leaped into her photograph making her the winner of this game for sure.
After that little moment, the results seem irrelevant.
Harry Potter gave this fan a night she will never forget by grabbing her phone out of her hand and snapping a selfie with her. He really does know how to make magic happen.
She certainly looks spellbound.
Not everyone is into politics. It looks like this grumpy little girl got schlepped around a tour of Washinton D.C and got bored of the city's attractions. Little did she know she was in front of one of its iconic figures.
Mommy and daddy must have been pretty distracted by ol Bill because that daughter looks like she's not having such a good time.
Bill Murray hilariously ruins this glamor shot of the lovely Selena Gomez. He seems like an expert at this point.
Whatever he does, he can turn it into a comedic moment.
What a sweetheart! The beloved Peter Dinklage of the hit show Game of Thrones took the liberty of throwing himself into selfies with his fans at the X-Men: Days of Future Past movie premiere in New York City.
He took this guy's phone and snapped a selfie from the otherwise of the barricaded area.
We' re pretty sure that when that Asian family boarded the plane to Paris, they had no idea what they were in store for. Baguettes, cafes and beautiful music, sure. Having a run-in with the the ex governator? Probably not.
As you can tell by this perfectly choreographed picture, the great Eiffel Tower is a mere distraction.
"Hey honey, I'm just going to pop down to the store to pick up a bottle of wine before dinner." No big deal, right? Wrong. This woman's supermarket run was met with quite a pleasant surprise in the form of a slightly disheveled-looking Nic Cage. Rough night, Nic?
He definitely turned the wine aisle into a party and brightened up the day of this woman. Guess she got the pick up she needed.
Looks like this sweet old lady/life-long slash fan got her wish. The man himself is standing right behind her as she nonchalantly looks to the horizon. No biggie.
While she might look really badass, we're not sure what this does for his image.
Once again getting lucky with the concert selfies. These three bros picked some prime location, right in front of J.T himself. While they couldn't be more pleased with the photo they scored, they're definitely playing it cool.
What they wouldn't give for him to jump in for a little more intimate group shot. That's about as close they will ever get.
Samuel L. Jackson
Once again we have the unfortunately not so rare specimen, "the oblivious fan" pictured before us. These creatures pop out whenever they smell a celebrity nearby. They generally have no real intention of interacting with them. They would rather just stick a camera in their face and flash a smile, pretending like the celeb is equally enthused about the whole situation.
It doesn't look like Samuel L. Jackson is prepared to put up with this. There might be a reason that he gets typecasted as such intimidating characters.
It's unclear if that man behind Ed Sheeran is the photobomber or if it's this glorious hawk that is clearly stealing all the attention. All eyes are on that hawk .
Even sweet Ed is trying to the angry hawk-eyed look, but that sweet scruffy face jus won't allow it.
Uh oh, looks like Sienna Miller and Cara Delevingne were going for a similar look. While Sienna might look like she's holding it together, Cara, on the other hand, has no issue hamming it up.
Wait your turn, Cara, I promise you will get your red carpet shot too.
There is nothing more surreal than seeing rockstars out and about doing everyday shopping. It's also strange to see these two types of people in the same photo in a parking lot of what probably is a Target. This sweet looking soccer mom couldn't believe it either.
Tyler, on the other hand, looks like he's been caught red-handed doing something bad and would probably be less ashamed if someone were to snap him trashing a hotel.
The rockstar/actor is famous for knowing how to create a spectacle and on that night he was unstoppable. After his Dallas Buyers Club Oscar win, Leto let it all out and even tried to get close and personal with Anne Hathaway
Anne was, of course, having none of it and with that icy cold shoulder, threw some nasty shade. Oh well, at least he got an Oscar.
When Taylor Swift went out partying with her gals, she probably didn't expect to run into a mustachioed James Bond. It wouldn't even seem that these two would attend the same parties, but alas, they did.
The actor seems pretty pleased to have made the shot.
The art of subtly sneaking an unaware celebrity into a selfie is something that these two fellas have not mastered. These two guys at the game attempted that but Krasinksi casually sat there in the back totally aware of the camera.
It must have been all that training from "The Office."
Aaron Paul, Again
These two guys had a complicated relationship on Breaking Bad, but on the red carpet, it's nothing but good vibes, even if Aaron Paul steps into Bryan Cranston's shot.
Heisenberg looks like he's seriously keeping his cool.
The view at concerts is basically a sea of phones in the air desperately trying to capture as much stage action as possible. It's certainly not the case for this woman who managed who got her lucky shot when Bruce Springsteen himself popped into the frame.
That's her new Facebook profile for sure. In fact, Bruce can use it too.
Game of Thrones star, Sophie Turner is living proof that celebrities get just as star-struck as the rest of us. Caught sitting near her heartthrob Ryan Gosling, Turner clearly cannot believe that she is even in the same room as him.
As for carefully taken celebrity pictures, this is definitely a winner.
If you're going to have someone walk into your wedding shot, it has to be Zach Braff. No one can turn an awkward photobomb into a hilariously cute moment like he can. The quirky actor's comic timing was perfect on this one and if anything, made this couple's romantic shot infinitely better.
If there is one photo that should be framed on the mantelpiece, it should be this one. We just really hope that they agree.
The prince is back making more surprising cameos in people's cellphones. At this sporting event, Harry, game as he always his for a friendly photobombing, thumbs up the camera.
These three guys don't seem too aware but, hopefully, at a later glance, they will be only too please at the little surprise in the back there.
Is this a meeting of past and present Adam Sandler? Is present Adam Sandler trying to warn his younger self of all the terrible movies he is about to make? No, that's just a Reddit user who looks awfully like the actor.
Sandler noticed him in a crowd and pulled him out to for a picture. We had our hopes.
Michael C. Hall
The battle of the TV stars. Mariska Hargitay, the Law and Order queen is trying to get front and center while Tina Fey is desperately trying to outflank her. Michael C. Hall, on the other hand, star of Six Feet Under and Dexter is caught in the back there looking like he is unclear about his place in this pecking order.
There is a lot going on in this picture and while everyone looks a little misplaced, there's no doubt that everyone in that photo is amazing in their own right.
Harry isn't the only fun one. When these two kids (who sort of look like a younger version of the two princes) struck a fancy pose with the royal fellow, William didn't shy away from the camera. Though it does sort of look like he's reaching for the phone. We hope not.
This is one Instagram story that they will never forget.
When Adam Driver is in the zone, he's in the zone. There is just no stopping him. Not even with sucker-punch from his on-screen nemesis Poe Cameron, played by Oscar Isaac.
Look at how he's trying to break that gaze. Impossible. Kylo Ren is something else.
More Nicolas Cage?
Yes. Nic just can't seem to stay out of the public eye. Unfortunately, he keeps looking hungover while doing it. This woman might be a stranger who is taking advantage of a sedated Cage to take a selfie. By the looks of his face, he doesn't seem to care too much.
This doesn't seem like a very fond memory but she looks none the wiser.
Trust the dorky spiderman fan to make web blasting gestures from their wrists. When this girl got her hands on Tom Holland that is of course exactly what happened.
Holland over here looks slightly less enthusiastic over this. He must be all out of spiderweb stuff by now.
Looks like Arnie gets around. When he's not hanging around near the Eiffel Tower, he's just strolling around, cigar in hand, with his boy, Sylvester Stallone. If the pink collared guy part of the action or is he the photobomber this time?
Not much is clear, one thing for sure that is, Arnie steals the show on this one and even Stallone somehow fades out in comparison.
When you're at Beyonce level fame, you are no longer under obligation to remain friendly and approachable to your fans. Of course, it's still nice that she does.
She made this fan's day but posing and looking cool for the camera. That pic is definitely for the books.
Cameron Diaz and Jimmy Fallon decided to join in on some New York City touring. They joined this lovely couple in their journey of memory-making and did what they do best. Make us laugh.
Forget the amazing cityscape, that image is enough.
The Entire Cast of Game of Thrones
Could you get any better than this? Grabbing a selfie with at least one cast member is great, but this woman managed to catch the whole gang. Wait, who is that man peering out from the side there? Oh, only George R.R Martin himself.
She really did score big time here.
Kelly Clarkson is just so loveable that you almost want her to photobomb every photo you have. And Ellen, of course, is just as adorable.
It would be great if Ellen and Portia just invited her into the photo. Seems like a win-win.
This guy couldn't believe who was seated behind him that he completely forgot about his date. Prince Harry, just sitting there by the birds of paradise gives the camera a cheeky smile.
We need a restaurant guide for celeb spotting. Please, someone?
These two lady sportscasters couldn't have been more thrilled to have their beloved Community star, Ken Jeong, butt into their photo at the Dodgers game.
Somehow after all these years, he still looks hungover.
Not everyone is a huge fan of you, Johnny Depp. Especially not this baby. Maybe they'll have to wait a few years until they see Pirates of the Caribbean, but for now, this baby is clearly unconvinced of the effect that you seem to have on people.
Knowing the fragile ego of an actor, he might be deeply hurt by this fact.
Benedict Cumberbatch Once Again
Sherlock Holmes fans couldn't contain themselves when their detective hero showed up for the photos. And by the looks of it, neither could Holmes himself. Sorry, we mean Benedict Cumberbatch.
We don't quite know who is more excited, the actor or the fans.
When you're famous, you might start to develop a habit where you find yourself automatically posing for selfies with screaming fans, even if those fans aren't particularly asking for one. Is this what happened here?
This guy doesn't seem to be aware of any photo being taken or hasn't been actually prepared himself for the photo that perhaps Robert is taking himself. Is he fan-fishing? Is that a thing?
Just your everyday image of Spielberg, Seinfeld and his wife, oh, and of course George Clooney trying to squeeze his way through this overbearingly star-studded shot.
Please, Clooney, don't bother us, this is our thing. Surely they must be thinking something like that.
After finishing up a tour of the most successful computer and software company in the world, you would have probably gotten your fair share of geeky snapshots. Computers, and um...yeah, we're not sure what sort of attractions are at the Microsoft offices but it looks like there might be at least one lurking in the corner there.
Bill Gates appeared just in time for this man's proud moment in front of this little Microsoft plaque. While the words might be blurred, we're happy we can at least see ol' Bill there.
This couple decided to have their engagement shots taken at this lovely beer garden. Comedian Dave Chappelle and obvious prankster looked at this as the perfect opportunity to 'improve' their romantic memories.
Looks like they only had eyes for each other because they didn't even notice he was there. When they did start to become aware of what was going on, we sure do wish that they invited him to the wedding! Or maybe he'll just crash that anyway.
Come on, lady. You're not actually trying to take a picture of you and your baby now are you? You saw the Wests out on the family lunch and you thought it would be cute to have them in the background there.
It's almost as if Kanye can sense it and Kim is making a run for it or ducking under the table.
Here the tables have turned and it's not just celebrities awkwardly walking in on family shots or couples. This little old lady stumbled on the king and queen of the music industry and could not quite believe it. Her face is priceless.
Beyonce at least shoots her a gracious smile. Jay Z doesn't seem to notice though. Who would with Beyonce on their arm?
Bill Clinton Once Again
Photobombs at their core are awkward. If you're a celebrity, often your sheer star power gets you out of those truly embarrassing situations. Not the case over here. Bill, hold yourself together and smile to the camera, you know, where the lens is.
We hope this didn't ruin this young lady's shot with one of her political idols.
Jimmy Fallon is at it again photobombing tourists' NYC memories, this time with the amazing Jon Hamm. Hamm and Fallon took to the town to add some laughs to people's Christmas cards.
What would Don Draper think of this madness?
Mr. Loveable can do no wrong. This exhausted young fan had the fortune of passing out beside the nicest man in Hollywood, perhaps the world. Clearly nothing could keep him awake.
Not even pizza or Tom Hanks. I mean, what else do you really need?
The king of quirky indie films is no stranger to odd situations and as you can see it goes way back. Michael Cera causally hanging out behind two macaw parrots could like a poster for his next film.
Of course, the parrot guy is none the wiser and is just proud to show off his two feathered friends.
This guy got the major sweats when he got to stand next to his favorite actor. Poor Morgan is inches away from touching those pits and by the look on that guy's face, he is battling between the feeling of sheer joy and fear of any accidental hand movement.
Let's hope that this interaction didn't end with a long and wet embrace.
Remember when Russel Brand and Katy Perry were an item? Their colorful relationship got a lot of coverage and created tons of buzz. And not just among us mere mortals reading the gossip mags, but also among celebs. Like the Biebs.
Here is the tiny tween Justin Bieber trying to get in the photo and make himself apart of that memory. The young singer must have felt quite torn when they ended.
Such a supportive husband, or perhaps hungry for the spotlight? Justin just couldn't resist getting in on a shot of his wife Jessica Biel at the Oscars.
Wait your turn, Justin. There will be plenty of camera time for you, sir.
It might be hard to spot at first in the sea of sunglasses and fedoras, in what looks like a Coachella festival, but that's Aaron Paul in the back there. Yep, it should come as no surprise that the Breaking Bad star loves to party.
He doesn't seem too fazed by the shot, in fact, he's probably starring in thousands of other "selfies" from that day.
