An Oscar wasn’t the only thing Jared Leto won last night. The recently crowned Best Supporting Actor competed for another title yesterday: Best Photobomber. And judging from the smattering of red carpet snapshots where Jared happens to drop in, we’d say he’s the clear winner!
The 42-year-old actor photobombed some of the night’s biggest stars including Kevin Costner and later on, Anne Hathaway, looking characteristically statuesque as Jared flips out from behind. It’s pretty terrific and, we think, deserves a statue of its very own.
Beside first class photobomber, Jared’s also quickly gaining a reputation as Hollywood’s sweetest son. Not only did he take his mom as his date for the evening, he spent the first part of his Oscar night acceptance speech thanking her for always “encourag[ing] her kids to be creative, to work hard, and to do something special.”
He wasn’t the only star who doubled as a photobomber last night, though. Veteran picture enhancer and well-known jokester Jennifer Lawrence had her fair share of clever candid moments, including some pretty classic pics of her trying to wrangle the Oscar away from fellow actress Lupita Nyong’o.
Good thing Jennifer and Jared won’t be in the same category if the Academy ever does decide to give photobombing the recognition it deserves. We could totally see J.Law doing some hair-pulling for a win.
