Kevin Spacey loved photobombing Ellen Degeneres' Oscar selfie.

The 'House of Cards' actor wrestled his way into the shot at the Academy Awards in March where he stood alongside Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt.

Talking to Ellen on her talk show, the 54-year-old star said: ''In the last year I've got into the whole photobomb. I've understood it.

''I was sitting, the aisle as here [at the Oscars], you were there with Meryl [Streep] over there [points] I was sitting three or four seats in. I think I had to climb over John Travolta to get to it. I saw this happening and thought this is the most awesome photobomb I'm getting in. I literally got straight to the back, I think I had to shove John Stamos down, Liza Minnelli was behind me trying to get seen.''

The image is believed to have been seen by 37 million people worldwide and was taken by actor Bradley Cooper.

The selfie was forwarded on Twitter more than 2million times by the time the ceremony was done, causing the social media site briefly to collapse.
