Stranger things have happened.
Apparently Sean Astin’s fondness for photobombs spans decades.
in a reddit In the post shared Wednesday, one user revealed that the veteran actor photobombed her not just once, but twice … and he did it 26 years apart!
According to the unsuspecting woman, the first joke in the photo occurred while sneaking into inaugural balls when Bill Clinton was president.
“Here’s the story,” he began. “In ’93, my dad hooked up for one of Clinton’s inaugural balls. That hook fell through and we ended up hitting balls. I think this was MTV’s ball, so the crowd was younger and there were a lot of celebrities there. “
“While we were waiting for Clinton to make an appearance, my dad took a picture of us,” he continued. “We had no idea that Sean was standing there let alone photobombing us until we developed the film.”
“Go ahead 26 years, I’m at Disneyland for the opening of Galaxy’s Edge and guess who’s up! I asked my husband if I should try showing Sean the photo (that I had on my phone) and he told me to do it. So I did. I run after Sean and yell ‘excuse me Sean, you made me a photobomb, do you want to see the picture?’ “.
Sean actually wanted to see the image and enjoyed the backstory so much that he suggested they recreate it.
“And that’s how Sean Astin photographed me twice,” concluded the lucky fan.
For a third event in the duo’s future!
