DeGeneres' Oscars selfie gets over 2 mn hitstext_fields
Los Angeles: A selfie of stand-up comedian and host Ellen DeGeneres, clicked by actor Bradley Cooper, which received over 1.1 million retweets in just half an hour, has reached 2,464,682.
The Academy Awards host, who handed her phone to Cooper to take the photo, became the most retweeted post ever on the social networking website, reports contactmusic.com.
Apart from DeGeneres and Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong'o and her brother Peter all crammed into the photograph.
However, Degeneres poked fun at Cooper insisting they could have crammed even more stars into the photo if he had long hands.
"If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever. Oscar," she wrote along with the photo.
The 86th Academy Awards ceremony took place Sunday here.
