While the merciless shutterbugs won’t rest in peace till they get what they want from A-listers, some actors have attempted commendable ways of evading the cameras and fans
Hollywood actors have come up with interesting ways to avoid the paparazzi and fanatic fans time and again. Case in point: Taylor Swift. A fan, while on a hiking trail, recently chased the Bad Blood singer. Keen on evading the unwanted guest, Taylor actually hiked her way backwards.
She posted a picture online later and said, “I saw the guy with the camera and wasn’t in the mood so I hiked the whole trail backward and my security told me when to make turns.” Here’s a list of other actors who came up with inventive techniques to drive away the creeps.
Don a doughnut
The Roar singer did not want her picture to be taken so she decided to hide behind a giant doughnut. Totally legit of course. We love our junk food too Katy.
Leonardo Di Caprio
When Di Caprio wants the paparazzi to stay away from him, he wears a mask reminiscent of Darth Vader and pretends like the cameras don’t exist. While some celebs hide behind dogs and stuffed toys, Leo is too cool to hide behind these mortal entities.
That you, Ron Weasley?
Great way of drawing attention to yourself, Rupert. When the shutterbugs get too much for Grint to handle, he wears a giant duck head instead and walks on the streets like that. Of course the duck is just as noticeable as the star himself, but guess he missed the memo for that.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
All for a cause
These two take the cake and how. The adorable and philanthropic couple stepped out of their apartment holding placards that advised the paparazzi to focus their attention on more important causes. Emma’s card read, ‘Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let’s try this again. We don’t need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do...’ While Andrews along with a couple of names of charities read, ‘Here’s to the stuff that matters. Have a great day!’
Superhero on the loose
If junior Smith thought that this would draw attention away from him he was wrong. In Smith’s world, if you want to avoid the paparazzi, just dress up like Iron Man and head out. The actor actually went around the city clad from head to toe in an Iron Man outfit and enjoyed himself plenty. Only the paparazzi were fast enough to sniff out his trail. Feeble attempt.
You can’t see me
He probably has the most unshakeable reputation for his crazy antics, and LaBeouf proved his happy insanity yet again when he stepped out in a paper bag to cover his face. He seems to have an affinity to paper bags; he stepped out in a paper bag on his face with some self-deprecating words that said ‘I’m not famous anymore’ at a red carpet event as well.
