Kevin Spacey gave a tourist in Boston the shock of her life with a photobomb. The image was later posted on Reddit, by a friend of the woman in the infamous picture.
The caption stated, “So yesterday in Boston my friend got photobombed by Kevin Spacey out jogging.” Christina Sander was at Boston Public Garden standing in front of the city’s George Washington monument when the House of Cards actor apparently “jogged up, shouted ‘PHOTOBOMB!’ and then ran off laughing.”
As Sander told Boston Magazine: “We were walking through Boston Common in the afternoon and were actually on our way back to get dinner when my friend, Ben Smith (who took the photo), asked me to pose in front of the statue. He took a picture, and then I noticed someone running directly toward me. As he [came] closer, I realized it was Kevin Spacey. He stopped right next to me, posed and yelled ‘This is a photobomb!’”
“I know it looks like I’m screaming in the photo, but I actually think I stopped breathing for a few seconds. And then he just jogged on, looking back 10 meters down the road and [waving] at me.”
“I was sure it was Kevin Spacey. I’m a big fan, I think I’ve watched American Beauty 50 times. I’d like to think I’d be able to recognize him anywhere. But it was all so surreal that I had to check the camera several times afterward to make sure. And Ben actually didn’t realise it was Kevin Spacey until I started yelling it after he disappeared. So I was also very happy that Ben actually took the photo.”
Sander further added: “I must say the whole viral thing, seeing the photo everywhere online, is almost as unreal as the experience itself.”
