The Oscars always attracts a lot of attention, and these days movie stars fuel that fire even more through social media. Ellen DeGeneres was the host of 2014-year Oscars, and below is a selfie that was taken with her Samsung phone (a major sponsor of the night). It has already been retweeted more than 2.5 million times – representing the most retweeted image of all time. This tweet broke records in less than 45 minutes.
The photo below comprises a group of Hollywood superstars that you’ll probably recognize: Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong’o, Ellen DeGeneres, and Bradley Cooper.
