Ellen DeGeneres finds out how many celebrities you can fit into a selfie


Angelia Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep and Lupita Nyong'o joined a whole host of A-list celebrities to pose for selfie that has now smashed global Twitter records after being re-tweeted over 2 million times.

Captured by host Ellen DeGeneres, the epic Oscars snap was taken in the Dolby Theatre in LA mid-ceremony, and features a sea of Hollywood's finest faces pulling their cheesiest photo faces.

Beating the record of 778,000 re-tweets, which was previously held by President Barack Obama, Ellen's spectacular selfie caused Twitter to temporarily crash after racking up a whopping 800,000 re-tweets in just half an hour.

'We really just made history. We're all winners tonight', the Oscars host later announced to the crowd.

Between Dior muse J-Law's sparkling giggle, Julia Robert's megawatt grin, Angelina's hand-in-face fail and Brad Pitt's bemused expression, we can see why this amazing photo has now made Internet history.

Mr Cooper, you are a talented man.
