Former US president Bill Clinton made headlines over a photograph in which he appears to be ogling a young woman’s chest as she takes a picture of herself alongside the statesman.
The photograph was taken last December by Israeli-born teacher Ari’elle Avdalî, who now lives in Los Angeles, the Daily Mirror reported. However, after a friend of hers posted it on the link-sharing site Reddit earlier this week under the title “President Clinton didn’t realize my friend was taking a selfie with him,” the sneaky peek went viral on the Internet with media sites picking up on the story.
Clinton, 68, may not have realized that Avdali was taking the picture; after all, he isn’t looking at the camera.
Among the 1,213 comments that the picture received on Reddit in the past two days were some that lampooned Clinton’s middle-aged virility, while others noted that, based on pictures that Avdali had posted to her Facebook account, she has a penchant for tops that ensure significant exposure.
Clinton, who famously became embroiled in a sex scandal involving White House intern Monica Lewinsky during his term in office, is set to celebrate his 40th wedding anniversary with wife Hillary next year.
If shared interests are the key to a long-lasting relationship than an incident from 2012 may shed light on how the Clintons have made it through four decades as such a well-balanced pair.
Pop singer Christina Aguilera was invited to the State Department to be honored for her work as a United Nations World Food Program Ambassador Against Hunger. The then secretary of state Hillary Clinton was on hand to congratulate Aguleria but was snapped taking in an eyeful of the celebrity’s dress-popping cleavage.
