Hollywood’s famous actors have a storied history of popping up in music videos, from Eddie Murphy’s campy turn alongside Michael Jackson to Jennifer Love Hewitt’s devastated ‘Hero’ heroine. Here’s presenting to you, a list of our favourite music video cameos:

  1. Rupert Grint

The Harry Potter actor can be seen as an obsessed fan, lip-syncing to Ed Sheeran’s Lego House in the music video of the same. The song is a play on the similar appearances of the two celebrities, and was a big hit when it first released.

  1. Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood can easily be given the title of ‘Music Video King’ for the number of features he has made over the years in music videos. However, the first time he popped up in a video was during his childhood, and that too for a Paula Abdul song. He can be seen in the video of her single Forever Your Girl.

  1. Alicia Silverstone

Silverstone gained further prominence as a teen idol when she appeared in three music videos for the band Aerosmith during her peak as a teenage actor. Her most memorable feature would probably be the cinematic Cryin clip, in which the young actress leaps off a ledge with a bungee and flips off her man instead of plummeting to her death.

  1. Scarlett Johansson

Get a taste of Justin’s seduction strategy as Justin Timberlake woos Scarlett Johansson in a retro mansion with a vintage microphone, in the music video of his single What Goes Around… Comes Around.

  1. Eddie Murphy

Do you remember the time Eddie Murphy starred in Michael Jackson’s music video? (Yes, pun intended) Eddie Murphy played a sultan trying to “entertain his queen,” and the only one who can impress him is Michael Jackson himself.
