A photo can be thought of as the physical manifestation of a memory. Depending on what you take a picture of or the angle, that memory can be seen and interpreted in countless different ways — some more hilarious than others!

While wrapping up his blockbuster hit, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, director James Gunn snapped a photo of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Kurt Russell in full costume, taking a break on set.

It was cool to get a behind-the-scenes look at the stars, especially since both Chris and Zoe were on their phones while Kurt enjoyed a well-deserved nap.

But that photo has resurfaced for the unlikeliest of reasons!

Twitter user Jamiesmart posted it online with the caption, “I thought Kurt Russell had a tiny personal hairdresser in this photo and tbh my brain was fine with the idea.”

And the moment he detailed his interpretation of the photo, the internet went wild!

Since its posting, it has received over 11,000 retweets, over 33,000 likes and hundreds of comments from people who can’t believe the optical illusion created by the photo.

During filming of his hit movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, director James Gunn frequently posted photos of the cast and crew on his social media.

And though a lot of these photos were during the press tour of the film, many of them were behind the scenes.

One that was very well-received by fans was a shot taken on set of three of his stars enjoying a break from shooting: Kurt Russell, Zoe Saldana, and Chris Pratt.

As many of you know, Kurt Russell played Ego, the Living Planet.

In that photo of Kurt and his co-stars, Kurt was caught napping — but that’s not all that was caught!

Twitter user Jamiesmart posted the photo online and noticed something odd about it:

“I thought Kurt Russell had a tiny personal hairdresser in this photo and tbh my brain was fine with the idea.”

And as you can see, the woman behind Kurt kind of does look like she’s doing his hair!

And Kurt Russell — in addition to being an amazing actor — has always had flowing locks.

So it might even be believable that he was getting his hair done while he napped.

What is less believable is the idea of a fairy-sized stylist popping out of his scarf to do his hair!

The internet has a had a field day with Jamiesmart’s interpretation, with one user saying the woman is actually the actor’s standard “grooming imp.”

Another commenter wondered how great life would be if they, too, had a fairy stylist on their shoulder.

This user provided quite the interesting theory as to where the hairdresser is while Kurt filmed scenes.

Another praised her for “working” while Chris and Zoe were on their phones.

But one user claimed that instead of a hairdresser, the woman was actually an elf who makes people get off their phones by lulling them to sleep; she got to Kurt first!


And hey, whether Kurt was just napping or actually closed his eyes to enjoy some pampering, I think we can all agree that he is awesome!
