It’s not everyday you spot a celebrity, especially one 25 feet tall.

So imagine commuters’ surprise on Wednesday when a giant Jeff Goldblum statue appeared in front of Tower Bridge.

The semi-naked sculpture was unveiled to mark a quarter century since Spielberg classic Jurassic Park hit the silver screen.

Dubbed Jurassic Jeff, the model pays homage to one of the film’s most iconic moments, when Goldblum’s sultry mathematician, Dr Ian Malcolm, takes a breather after a T-Rex attack.

The image has spawned countless memes, which have gained a positive response from the 65-year-old actor.

“I admire them myself,” he said in May.

“It’s great, the human body is beautiful in all ways.”

Jurassic Jeff, a publicity stunt for a television streaming service, took six weeks to make and weighs in at 150kg, organisers said.

Fans of the flick can gaze at the bronzed colossus of Potters Fields Park until Friday.
