Barack Obama

Hail to the cheek! When President Obama made an unannounced visit to the Great Eastern restaurant in San Francisco’s Chinatown recently, he posed for photos with a diner who clearly copped a feel of his butt. It wasn’t clear whether she knew that her hand had gone south, but the president took it in stride and just smiled.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has been Brad Pitt’s main squeeze for so long and he constantly reminds the paparazzi by giving her one—Pitt has been photographed with his hand on Jolie’s behind countless times, including at the 2010 New York premiere of The Tourist. But she can give as good as she gets. On the red carpet at the 2009 BAFTAs, Jolie took a handful of Pitt.

Jamie Foxx and Halle Berry

When Halle Berry presented Adrien Brody with his Oscar for Best Actor in 2003, he used the occasion to steal a passionate kiss onstage. But six years later, while accepting the Decade of Hotness statue at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards, Berry turned up the heat by making out with presenter Jamie Foxx. And Foxx got into the spirit of things by grabbing a hunk of Halle.

Rafael Nadal and Juan Monaco

Though tennis matches typically end with a gentlemanly handshake, Spain’s Rafael Nadal gave a cheeky greeting to his good friend, Argentina’s Juan Monaco, before the start of the 2011 Davis Cup Final in November. The squeeze play worked: Nadal won the match, and Spain took the title.

Kanye West and Amber Rose

“Never trust a big butt and a smile,” Kanye West said, quoting lyrics as Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison” played at the 2011 Essence Music Festival. “Why ain’t I listen to that song?” West’s joke was clearly a sly poke at his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, whose backside he was known to hold onto in public.

David Beckham and Clarance Seedorf

Anyone who watched David Beckham’s underwear commercial for H&M during Super Bowl XLVI knows the power of his famous butt. And after Golden Balls scored his first goal for the Italian soccer club AC Milan in 2009, his teammate Clarance Seedorf rubbed it like a talisman. “Italy is a superstitious country, and people often touch things for luck,” Seedorf said of the cheeky gesture. “The players are doing the same with Beckham and touching his bottom because he is seen as a lucky mascot.”


Sarah Silverman

Sometimes a celebrity doesn’t need another to grab someone else’s ass—they can just reach out and touch their own. In 2007, comedian Sarah Silverman was named No. 29 on Maxim’s “Hot 100” list, and on the red carpet to celebrate the issue, she said bottoms up to the paparazzi.

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz
