Sam Smith tells fans to squeeze his bum as he licks ‘himself’

Singer Sam Smith could not resist getting up close and personal with ‘himself’ – as he came face-to-face with his wax doppelgänger.

The Grammy award winner paid a visit to Madame Tussauds in San Francisco recently, where he has been immortalised in wax.

Clearly excited to meet his “twin”, Smith tweeted: “Heading to Madame Tussauds right now. Can’t believe I’m even saying this.”

On meeting the figure, the singer took a series of selfies – including one of himself kissing and licking the figure on the cheek.

In another he can be seen laughing as he tries to take in the life like model – a meeting he described as ‘surreal’.

Alongside one picture he wrote: “Possibly the most surrealist experience of my life”.

Speaking about the model he said: “I can’t actually believe that I’m going to be in Madame Tussauds.

“This is the ultimate ‘pinch yourself’ moment. The process was so fascinating and I will never look at a wax figure in the same way again.

“Thank you Madame Tussauds, and hope you all have fun. Feel free to squeeze my wax bum!” he joked.

After the excitement of meeting his own waxwork, the Stay With Me took some time out to visit his favourite movie stars – including heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio, who he joked was his “new Boyf”.

He also posed alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Audrey Hepburn, as fellow out star Neil Patrick Harris.

Smith released a behind-the-scenes video as the sculpture was being made, as he had his head measured and the eye and hair colour of his waxwork perfected.

Last month, the star took to Twitter to lament action against countries where gays are persecuted – saying it “kills him” to see inaction on the issue.

He wrote: “It’s so deep. But sometimes I sit and get so upset when I think about all the hundreds and thousands of gay men and woman all over the world, who are going through such heartache and hard times for just wanting to love someone they love.

“It makes me so sad and sometimes feel so guilty that I have that simplest freedom whilst others don’t.

“Sorry to get so deep, but it kills me. I don’t understand why more of us aren’t doing something about it. I’ll leave it there.”
