There's nothing more perfect than meeting a celebrity in the oddest of places, except, perhaps, getting a picture with them.

The perfect celebrity selfie

There is no one way to make the perfect selfie with a celeb, but the underlying factor is you have to be a great judge of context and the universe has to be working in your favor.


Many selfie/photobomb sessions have gone horribly wrong. And the reasons for this are often simple. As a general rule, approaching a celeb just because you see them across the street may not work out well 9 times out of 10.

Fans who got it right

That said, some people know how to bring out the best in most celebs, with the exception of Kanye West. It's impossible to catch Kanye on a good day. The best you can get is a blank face.

But, the right mix of playful ideas and timing can get even a Beyonce to fall in line with ideas for how the photo session should play out.

Here are some of the best selfie, photobomb moments in celebrity history:

1. This woman caught Bill Clinton at just the right time.

Basic selfie rules

Let’s face it. Meeting your favorite celeb can be a lot of pressure, but it’s important to remember a few things straight up before you approach them.


Celebrities are human. No one wants to be randomly intercepted by a stranger in the street. They are people with lives beyond the ones we know from our screens.

Just try to act as chill as possible and be respectful.
