Ready to feel terrible about your own meager Instagram account? Because Ellen DeGeneres managed to gather such talent as Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Jared Leto, and Jennifer Lawrence during the March 2 Academy Awards for the best. Selfie. Ever!
No one even made a duck face! You know your Academy Awards selfie is legit when even Best Supporting Actor winner Jared Leto jumps in uninvited on the action.
Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar Selfie — Jennifer Lawrence & More Pose
So hilarious. So impromptu. So meta.
In a planned for Ellen DeGeneres — but impromptu for everyone else — moment, Ellen walked into the middle of the aisle and started gathering her famous friends for what she hopes will be the most retweeted selfie of all time. Meryl Streep was asked to take the shot, but when folks like Lupita Nyong’o, Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Channing Tatum, and Kevin Spacey joined in, it all got to be a bit too much for Meryl to handle. In all of the confusion we weren’t even sure who took the actual shot, but needless to say, it ended up perfect — even if Angelina was kind of blocked by Lupita’s brother.
What did you think of Ellen’s epic selfie, HollywoodLifers? Who looked the best in the impromptu shot? Was there anyone else — like, say, Benedict “Sexy” Cumberbatch or Michael “Hot As Hell” Fassbender — that you think should have joined? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
