Egypt hijack selfie Brit ‘just wanted photo with Jeff Goldblum’

Egypt photo selfie

British passenger Ben Innes has said he took the photo with Egyptian hijacker Seif Eldin Mustafa because he wanted a selfie with Hollywood star Jeff Goldblum.

Innes told authorities that meeting celebrities is terribly exciting, and he couldn’t miss the opportunity get a picture with the Independence Day star.

He explained, “I thought I was in a film, it was really exciting what with a Hollywood A lister wearing a fake suicide vest. I just assumed the cameras were hidden.

“As I left the plane I told him I loved Jurassic Park but that The Fly gave me nightmares. He seemed nice enough about it, but wasn’t all that keen on giving me an autograph.

“To be honest, I always thought he was taller, I guess all actors are really short.

“This new photo will take pride of place next to my selfie with Barack Obama, though I still don’t know why the President of the United States was sweeping the aisles in Slough’s B&Q.”
