A photo of actor Kurt Russell napping on the set of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" as his co-workers check their cell phones has gone viral.

In the picture, Russell, 66, is seen napping in his chair as his co-stars, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana, check their phones. While Russell's head rests on his shoulder, it appears as though one of the crew members in the background is styling his hair.

“I thought Kurt Russell had a tiny personal hairdresser in this photo and tbh my brain was fine with the idea,” the Twitter user captioned the photo.

The post was retweeted more than 16,000 times and it garnered just about 50,000 likes in less than one week. It prompted several other social media users to share their theories and observations about the photo.
