A group of Thai tourists was not glad that Arnold Schwarzenegger photobombed their photo while they were clicking in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Well, obviously they had no idea that it was the Terminator actor. Arnold Schwarzenegger dressed in shorts, a camouflage jacket and dark glasses rode on a bike in front of the tourists like another tourist. While the group of tourists cringed Arnold Schwarzenegger stole the limelight unknowingly. However, he later took to Instagram and thanked them for letting him photobomb their picture. He also shared pictures of his bike ride in Paris with the caption, “Fantastic bike ride through Paris. I cannot say this enough: to truly appreciate a city, get on a bike. Thank you to the tourists at the Eiffel Tower for letting me crash your photo!”
The Sun quoted a 32-year-old tourist Lek Wattana, who was part of the group as saying, “We all went to Paris on a group tour and we all got together for a picture in front of the Eiffel Tower. Then some foreigner on a bike stopped in front of the group. I was thinking to myself ‘why is he so rude?’.” He further said, “I thought to myself, ‘Hey, what a badass!'” The tourist said that they had not idea who the person was and not understood after he drove off. When one of Arnold’s men called out for him that is when they understood that it was the actor. Hugh Jackman photobombed TV reporter Jessica Turner & she loved it!
Here are pictures Arnold Schwarzenegger shared on Instagram:
Arnold was also photographed outside the Notre Dame cathedral and Les Invalides while on trip to Paris. The actor and former governor of California were in the city to receive France’s most prestigious medal. French President Francois Hollande awarded him the Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur. Schwarzenegger has in the past worked with the French President in an initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
